Double check these numbers, but last I checked, ES was $0.77 to Globex and $0.40 for clearing. On top of that you have your brokerage fee, which at Interactive Brokers I believe is $0.85 for your first thousand of the month and less after that.

Your current commissions look like they might be around $2500–$4000/mo, and leasing a CME IOM membership for $300/mo might reduce those commissions to $1300–$1900/mo.

I think being an exchange member defines you as a professional at Interactive Brokers, so you'll probably be asked to pay a little more for data feeds, if you use theirs.

Alternatively you might consider incurring fewer commissions.
