A ONE-STOP PORTAL OF INFORMATION FOR FUTURES AND COMMODITIES TRADERS


Futures Commission Merchants (FCM's) are primarily recognized as the firms that clear Commodity Futures and Option trades. If you trade Commodities through an Introducing Broker(IB), they will have an FCM that clears / executes their trades. When you send in your funds to trade commodities, they will be sent to and put in the name of the clearing firm as Customer Segregated Funds.


*We have created a Custom Search Engine in Cooperation with Google. The database in this Search Engine only includes the websites of Futures Commission Merchants (FCMs). This will give you a much cleaner search for FCMs.
