I have a funded account, but I have not live traded in quite some time. I just noticed that I am being charged $15 every month for a CME fee. It is deducted from my account balance. Does everyone have to pay this fee? Is there a way to avoid it?
I had been trading the ES, but I took time off to learn more about trading.

Does everyone have to pay this fee? -Yes.
Is there a way to avoid it? -No.

Also: 1. Yes.; 2. No.
Most exchanges try to get rid of data free riders, i.e. people who cause load on infrastructure
without trading. In that sense, the 15$ that ToS charges to you are dirt cheap compared with
the original CME fees.
