Brokerage Services

You can enter your orders with us over the telephone or internet-based entry.  This results in many fills reported back while you are holding on the phone.   Through the use of electronic order entry, some orders are routed directly to the filling broker in the actual trading pit.  Rest assured, we pride ourselves that your order is taken correctly and transmitted as quickly as technology allows for execution.

If you are a seasonal or system trader, give us the parameters of your trading system and we will automatically operate the necessary orders in the marketplace.  We will enter the market, move stops, execute contingent orders or whatever your trading system requires for no additional charge.

Through our clearing firm, we offer 24 hour trading in currencies, metals, energies and access to all major foreign markets.  If you need this service, please let us know at the time you open your account.

Managed Accounts

If you are looking to be involved in futures but would like someone else to do the trading, Sawtooth offers access to professionally managed accounts.  These commodity trading advisors services can be requested and are only offered with the receipt of their disclosure document.  Sawtooth continues to evaluate and review all recommended advisors.

Commissions and Fees

Our standard rate is $30 plus fees roundtrip.  We charge $15 to buy and $15 to sell plus fees.  Depending on the exchange, the actual charge will be between $36 and $39 per contract traded.  If you enter your order directly over the Internet, we charge $18 plus fees roundtrip.  Volume discounts and day trade commissions are available and subject to negotiation.

For commodity options, we charge $30 plus fees which is charged when the order is filled.  If the option premium is $500 or less or you order more than 10 options, the charge is $22 plus fees.

Account Requirements

Our minimum to open a futures trading account is $5,000.  If you are trading options or mini-contracts, the account minimum is $2,500.
