The 50% reduction of futures per-contract brokerage fees is only offered to futures accounts opened during the promotional period, said the self-clearing online brokerage for trading stocks, ETFs, options and futures.

We’re excited for new customers, from advanced futures traders to beginners, to experience the technology, education and multi-asset classes TradeStation Securities offers, while taking advantage of our futures price promotion with no account minimums.”

TradeStation offers investors over 350 futures and futures options products, including various indexes, currencies, interest rates, metals, energies and more.

The platform features a trading and analysis platform, free market data, experienced customer support, trade-desk specialists, and educational resources including the complimentary eBook “Futures Trading Demystified.”

Customers looking to diversify their portfolio and capitalize on the ever-changing world economy can turn to futures trading, which provides users with extended trading hours, increased leverage, and some highly liquid futures markets.

Promotional rates on futures products: (1) micro futures: $0 commission + $0.25 per contract, per side and (2) futures: $0 commission + $0.75 per contract per side.

Promo Rates are not applicable to any futures products bought or sold on the FuturesPlus platform. Only Entity (non-Institutional), IRAs, Individual or Joint futures accounts are eligible for Promo Rates.

A Minimum Deposit of $5,000 will reap the reward of $200 in cash or crypto, while a customer with an amount of $10,000 gets $500. Higher figures give access to higher rewards. A minimum deposit of $100,000 will collect $1,000 USD or Crypto, and the maximum reward of $2,500 USD can only be achieved with a deposit of $1,000,000.
