Members, arcades, and proprietary traders operating under a special exchange program may be entitled to special exchange fee pricing. At this time, IB 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, IB strongly recommends that clients contact IB by email at firstname.lastname@example.org for details on the incentive programs currently supported by IB. Additionally it is the client's obligation to notify IB of any incentive program membership. IB 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 IB receiving verification. Reduced fees will not be retroactively applied for trading done prior to IB being notified and confirming the account’s incentive program status.
