Could you elaborate at least for your case, what can you offer as an introducing broker to IB for customer's, rather than them going direct with IB, in terms of costs savings or benefits?

I apologize, I thought that your question was a general comparison between an IB and FCM.
We don't have a formal relationship with IB the brokerage house.

Trading futures and options involves substantial risk of loss and is not suitable for all investors. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. You may lose more than your initial investment. All posts are opinions and do not claim to be facts. Please conduct your own due diligence. Use only Risk capital when trading Futures.

Does using an introducing broker for IB provide any additional savings/benefits other than initial account opening minimum, like lower fees/comm's/margins, or additional services/benefits? Looking to use IB with Sierrachart.

I am using IB with Sierrachart through meintrade and, aside from better customer service, I'm not aware of any additional benefits.

I don't have any experience with other introducing brokers, so you might need to do some reasearch.

A much delayed thank you to all that replied so long ago. At the time of posting this question we had some big changes happen and stopped my new journey in its tracks. All has been good and a lot has changed over 4 plus years.
Im happy NT 8 is out and is a broker too. Cannon as well has been very pleasant to offer assistance as I have changed my focus to mini futures. Happy New Year!
