Macquarie Futures USA is a full service futures commission merchant (FCM) and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Macquarie Group Limited (ASX: MQG AU). The Macquarie global futures platform provides clients with 24-hour access to global futures markets via direct market access trading platforms, specialist voice broking or direct floor execution.[1]

Macquarie Futures USA is a member of the National Futures Association (NFA).


Macquarie Futures USA began operations in the U.S. in September of 2006.

In September of 2008, the business expanded with the purchase of Shatkin Arbor Inc., a Chicago-based clearing firm on the CBOT and CME.[2]

Recently the clearing offering was expanded through the addition of memberships on NYMEX. In October 2009 the business opened its newest office in Chicago to support the expansion of the business.

On Dec. 9, 2009, Chicago Climate Futures Exchange (CCFE) announced that Macquarie Futures USA Inc. had become a trading privilege holder (TPH) of the exchange. TPH rights enable an individual or company to receive a discount on transaction fees. TPH rights also enable Macquarie Futures to become a clearing member of CCFE.[3]
