Unlike security options, CFE futures contracts (other than security futures) cannot be held in a securities account and are required to be held in a futures account. CFE security futures contracts may be held in either a futures account or a securities account. In order to assist those customers that wish to consider a Futures Commission Merchant (FCM) or Introducing Broker (IB) in order to trade CFE futures contracts, we have assembled the following list of FCMs and IBs offering CFE futures products.
As a convenience to investors, CFE is providing a list of FCMs, IBs, and authorized clearing firms for CFE futures products. It is not an endorsement of the firms listed, and no significance should be attached to a firm's inclusion or omission. CFE has not investigated the background or disciplinary history of any of the firms listed or of any individual broker in connection with providing this list. The selection of an FCM or futures broker involves matters of personal preference. In choosing a broker, an investor should ask questions and take into account such factors as he or she individually regards as important.
