MB Trading, IB member FINRA, SIPC; MB Trading Futures, Inc. RFED/IB and member NFA. Trading in futures, options and Forex is speculative in nature and not appropriate for all investors. Investors should only use risk capital when trading futures, options and Forex because there is always the risk of substantial loss. MBTFS and MBTFX are sometimes referred to collectively herein as "MB Trading."

1MB Trading FX offers two Forex pricing models. Both models employ our RFED to client facing execution system with slightly different pricing and markup models.  For purpose of clarity the two pricing models (Plan 1 and Plan 2) both operate on the same technology.  The underlying technology is named The MB Trading Electronic Xrossing Network, abbreviated as EXN for the remainder of this disclaimer.  The main differentiator between the models is twofold.

A.    Difference in amount of markup or markdown of liquidity partner (banks) quotes when displayed to clients.
B.    Commission Structure charged to client

Plan 1 or “Pay for Limit” plan employs the EXN technology in a commission model. This model charges a client 2.50 in their base currency per 100k of executed currency for market orders and pays a client .50 of base currency for posted, executed limit orders. In the Pay for Limits model, the term "Payment for Limit Order" refers to a non-market order which is not immediately executable and rests on the internal limit order book for some period of time, thus adding liquidity when another order of equal or greater value fills with the resting order.

Free Commission Plan employs the EXN technology in a markup only plan, which means that MB Trading receives a markup embedded in the spread as compensation. This plan does not add an additional commission, does not pay the client a rebate for posted liquidity as Plan 1 does yet does still offer the benefit of allowing the client to post quotes which is displayed to all other clients on Plan 2.

Additional information to note is that “Actual Total Paid to Clients” counter is kept on the company website which displays The Actual Total Paid to Clients currency number which is updated every five minutes and stops counting during the weekend when the market is closed. The number calculates from the launch of Pay for Limits, which was January 31, 2011.

Due to higher cost of business in China, “Get paid for limit orders” is not available for Chinese residents. All Chinese residents have a fee of 2.50 for all order types. Accounts with special commission rates are excluded from Payment for Limit Orders. There is a minimum fee of $0.01 for all Forex and spot trading orders that take liquidity.
