The CME Group plans to raise transaction fees on a host of products starting Jan. 1, 2016, pending regulatory approval, the exchange said on Monday.
Fees for members to trade agricultural options on CME's electronic Globex platform will rise to 36 cents, from the current level of 25 cents, to match fees on agricultural futures.
Non-member fees on agricultural options traded on Globex will rise to $1.34, matching the fees on ag futures, from the current 70 cents.
Fees are assessed per contract, against both buyer and seller. The proposed fee changes must be approved by the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission.
