Are you an FCM?
No, we operate in partnership with Clear Chicago Group, the dba for a registered futures commission merchant.

Who do you clear through?
Clear Chicago Group, the dba for a registered futures commission merchant that holds customer's funds.

How long have you been in business?
FuturesBroker.com was founded in 2007 and launched retail trading in May of 2009.

Is my money insured?
No. There isn't any insurance in the futures industry as there is in the banking and securities industries.
Due to the strict daily financial reporting requirements, substantial net capital requirements to hold customer funds on deposit, and the vigorous audits performed by the National Futures Association (NFA), your funds on deposit with a United States FCM are well protected.

http://www.futuresbroker.com/support/faq.aspx

Do you have a refund or protection policy?
No. Please read the risk statement from the CFTC contained on the website.

How many retail customers do you have?
We do not release that information to the public.

How many prop traders do you have?
We do not release that information to the public.

I trade CFDs yet, but I Would like to switch to day trading futures, CFD's for swing & position trading.

But it is not so easy to keep the overview here, brokers, software, commissions, regulations ...

But thanks for the replies, I'm here inside me a bit more

They are the 'white label' firm connected with a Clear Chicago which is the dba of the actual FCM you clear using.

Futuresbroker.com advertised rate ( ~0.30 R/T ) is lower than the FCM so I do not think they want traders to know the FCM. The FCM is about the same size as AMP.

Seems like more than one FCM is setting up 'discount' arm to compete.

Math. A gateway drug to reality.

The FCM in this case is not a broker dealer so they would not have anything to do with the SIPC. They are a FCM only.

Hi All,

Nothing to hide here... We are the FCM behind FuturesBroker, and it's offered as a discounted self service option to VF.

Also, in regards to the prop trader question - there are no prop traders at VF or FB.

Best regards,

If you have any questions about our services at Velocity Futures please send me a private message.

Hi All,

Nothing to hide here...

@Dale Box, I was not implying you were hiding. Hope I didn't give that impression.

VF was on my short list when I was picking a new broker and I haven't heard anything but good things about VF.

Math. A gateway drug to reality.
