Floor Broker (FB) Registration

An FB is an individual who purchases or sells any futures contracts, options on futures or swaps on any contract market for any other person.

A registered FB need not also register as a floor trader (FT) in order to engage in activity as a floor trader.

Registration Requirements for FBs

To register as an FB:

  • Designate yourself as the Security Manager in order to obtain secure access to NFA's Online Registration System (ORS)
  • Complete online Form 8-R
  • Submit fingerprint cards
  • Contract markets and SEFs must submit proof that they have been granted trading privileges.  Contract markets and SEFs may provide proof in ORS after their applications have been filed.
  • Pay a non-refundable application fee of $85. (An application fee is not required if you are currently registered with the CFTC in any capacity or are listed as a principal of a current CFTC registrant.)
