Account Types

Professionally CTA Managed: Investing in the futures markets with the benefit of a professional money manager, called a Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA), for those clients that would prefer to have their accounts professionally managed. For a further explanation, please check out our Managed Futures page.

Professionally Broker Managed: A professionally managed account is where an experienced, personally assigned broker will trade your account on your behalf. Your broker will take the time to discuss your financial objectives, tolerance of risk, and market preferences, if any. You will be able to closely monitor your portfolio and account performance with our Online Account Review.

Full Service: Full service accounts are recommended for clients new to commodity trading. You will be provided with a personally assigned broker who will take the time to assist with proper order placement, and with your market analysis; whether it be technical, fundamental or seasonal. Brokers will also gladly assist in providing trade recommendations based on in depth research and technical analysis.

Broker Assisted: Broker Assisted accounts are recommended for experienced traders, traders that require limited broker assistance, or those that subscribe to any trade advisory service (option or futures) that simply like their trades to be placed in accordance with recommendations. You will be provided with a personally assigned broker who will place your trades in a courteous and timely manner, and contact you via phone or email (whichever preferred) immediately upon confirmation.

There is a substantial risk of loss in trading commodity futures and options on futures. Only risk capital should be used when trading futures or options. Investors could lose more than their initial investment. The lower the Day Trade Margin the higher the leverage and riskier the trade. Leverage can work for you as well as against you, it magnifies gains as well as losses. You should consider carefully whether futures or options are appropriate to your financial situation.  Past performance is not indicative of future results. If the market moves against your position or margin levels are increased, you may be called upon to pay substantial additional funds on short notice to maintain your position. If you fail to comply with a request for additional funds within the time prescribed, your position may be liquidated at a loss and you will be liable for any resulting deficit.
