Applies to accounts with active trading platforms only. Waived if 50+ contracts traded each month or active platform is X_TRADER® Subscription or CQG Integrated Client.  This fee will be accessed in the currency that holds the most funds.

* - Some Currency Transactions to meet margin calls or exchange rate transactions made at the customer's request will be charged a fee as stated below:

When moving money between reg coded accounts such as your US trading account (Reg code 01) and your foreign reg coded accounts such as (02 or 03 for US or foreign customers respectively) there will be a charge only for moves that involve different currencies. This means that when moving funds of the same currency there will be no charge. These funds may need to be moved in order to meet margin calls within your account that occur in one reg code. Even though the total balance of your separately coded accounts is large enough to not receive a call, United States regulation requires that we actually move the money between reg codes to meet the call. When these funds are moved inside of your account between reg codes we may have to convert currencies in order to do so and there will be a charge associated for that service.

For those traders only trading US exchanges and transacting only in domestic (US) currency there will never be a charge for this service. The same applies to Traders always trading a foreign exchange and having all funds traded within that reg code. Therefore, charges apply to accounts which have funding spread across multiple reg codes and which trade multiple exchanges, whether foreign or domestic.

Platform fees will be charged in the currency that holds the most funds at the time the fee is accessed.
