Is there anyway to place trades directly with globex? I was taking a look at my ib statement and never really paid attention to my commssions. I pay 2.35 each way unbundled for es. out of this ib charges .90 for execution and .30 for clearing next to that is the 3rd party fee which charges 1.14 for execution and .01 for regulatory fees. I called Ib and asked who is the 3rd party broker and they told me globex. The guy on the phone said there the second largest clearing after globex for e mini futures, clearing 25-35% daily. I know I am a newbie but is there anyway going around this. I've heard of dorman and rcg, so why isn't everyone using them? Is it bec. Ib trades everything you can imagine?
