IB Commission


Well-known member
For buying 100 shares IB charges $1. For one option contract IB charges $1 as commission. Would it not be really nice if IB charged $1 for futures contract instead of $2.4.

yes it would. can you trade futures with a small a/c with IB? whats the smallest dow contract you can trade with IB, and do the spreads differ with the size of the contrace, i.e, do you get smaller spreads for trading the bigger contracts?

Impossible I'm afraid.

The exchanges charge all brokers a set fee per transaction. I beleive CME/Globex is around $1.95 so IB actually take < 50 cents
