Categories of Futures/options Firms


The firms listed in Futures' 2005 SourceBook are broken into four groups--brokers/advisors, information suppliers, electronic/computer services and professional services. Some categories are defined by the NFA or CFTC; some are self-explanatory. In other cases, firms placed themselves or were placed into categories that best fit. Firms were limited to a few main categories, so some may fit in more than are indicated here.

The companies in bold face type have enhanced listings or advertisements in this issue. See the ad index (page 3) for display ad page numbers.

For complete addresses, phone numbers or key people for the firms, see the alphabetical listing of all firms beginning on page 20. Non-U.S. firms follow the U.S. listings.
