CME Group clearing, corporate, and individual memberships can be bought, sold, or leased and enable approved members to trade specific products at reduced rates and lower fees. 

Memberships are available on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, Inc. (CME), Chicago Board of Trade, Inc. (CBOT), New York Mercantile Exchange, Inc. (NYMEX), and Commodity Exchange, Inc. (COMEX) Exchanges. Exchange memberships are entirely separate from one another and offer access to different products at different rates. To trade specific products, you must be a member of the Exchange on which they trade.
