DeCarley Trading is committed to providing a flexible commission structure in which we are capable of meeting the needs of traders of all types and sizes at a reasonable rate. If you haven't already, please read "Full Service or Online?" (click here to read) to determine which type of service you are most interested in.
We understand that traders wear many different hats and cannot always be categorized into one commission structure. Therefore, our rates are negotiable based your personal experience, needs and account size.

Perhaps the most critical decision you will make as a futures and options trader isn't what to buy or sell, or when to execute a strategy, but whom to trade with. Regardless of your desired service level (self-directed discount trading, or full-service brokerage), opening an account with the "wrong" brokerage firm, or individual broker, can be an expensive and painful lesson. It is critical that you get this choice right the first time to ensure you won't be wasting valuable time and stress on non-trading decisions.
