Where Do I trade futures?
In order to trade futures, you must have an existing futures account or you must create an account with a broker. If you have a stock broker, then you can probably open a futures account with them as well.
If you are outside of the United States, you can also gain access to trading US futures as long as you have a valid passport and utility bill to prove your address.
Futures are traded on exchanges, but you’ll actual execute your trades on your broker platform who will clear your order. Simply ask your current broker about it, or to open a new account, Google “Futures brokers” and you’ll get plenty of options. Every broker offers different margin incentives as well.
