Q. Can I access my account statements on-line?

A. Yes. We have a full-service order execution desk that can accommodate virtually any futures product that you want to trade.
Q. Am I required to use CQG or TT for my electronic trading technology?
A. We support CQG and TT to be world-class platforms;
these are the same trading systems used by hundreds of exchange members and proprietary traders. Customers can choose to use other vendors for charting applications and/or market data.
If you’d like to know which system is best for you, please call (212) 845-5138
Q. Do I need to sign separate software licensing contracts with these vendors?
A. No. Once you select the trading technology platform that you want (and the exchanges that you want to access), our IT department will facilitate the set-up of your system, including training, on a turnkey basis. Your account will be debited for the cost of the system each month.
