I got (leased!) my IDEM membership not for it's trading privileges but because it made me an Eligible Contract Participant ("ECP") under the commodity exchange act. Having ECP status enabled me to trade a lot of Over-The-Counter energy products, and trade on ICE and IDEM was (probably still is) the cheapest seat I could get. Since Dodd-Frank though, nearly everything is now a regulated future and as such the ECP designation is no longer valuable.

I now have (lease) the NYMEX seat for the reduced fees. 1000 lots a month and it's paid for.

I have had cbot seats for 20 years. AM and IDEM. sold my AM because i was not trading treasury's anymore. Held the IDEM because i started trading YM. Sold the IDEM in Dec of 2014 because of the b.s. CME data fees and also was not really trading YM anymore.

When you sell a seat you own, does the CME charge any fees for the transaction ?
