Thanks for following up. We just received a response about this from one of the support representatives over at TT. We wanted to reach out to TT first to find out about their standard charges before reaching out to the FCM level.
According to TT support:
" We do not have a concept of gateways on the TT platform, as all order flow is hosted by TT.
There is a MAP (Market Access Provider) fee that is billed monthly per user, per exchange, however that fee is billed to whomever “lights up” the exchange connection/credential. If the user has his own credentials and turns on that connection, he is billed the MAP fee. If the trader is trading on his FCM’s credentials, the FCM will be billed the MAP fee. The standard monthly MAP fee is $250/user/exchange.
Please see included link for Market Data Fees (including professional users) for exchanges for which we are vendor of record."
Being that you are a client of Optimus Futures and your account is held at one of the clearing firms we work with, it is likely that you would incur this $250 MAP fee charged directly through your trading account. We will now need to check with the various FCMs we work with that support TT (other than AMP which apparently does not charge the MAP fee) to see if this MAP fee is charged for TT users.
We will update you as soon as we hear more,
Optimus Futures Support
