Members, arcades, and proprietary traders operating under a special exchange program may be entitled to special exchange fee pricing. At this time, IBKR supports pricing for several incentive programs available through the CME (electronic ECBOT, GLOBEX and NYMEX). While clients must contact the exchange directly regarding the application and approval process, IBKR strongly recommends that clients contact IBKR by email at email@example.com for details on the incentive programs currently supported by IBKR. Additionally it is the client's obligation to notify IBKR of any incentive program membership. IBKR will need to independently verify the account’s status with the exchange. If verified, reduced exchange fees will go into effect within 2 weeks of IBKR receiving verification. Reduced fees will not be retroactively applied for trading done prior to IBKR being notified and confirming the account’s incentive program status.
