When a trader signs a user agreement with Rithmic, it is their responsibility to make sure that the appropriate status is selected: professional or non-professional status.
Once a status has been selected, there will be no opportunity to change it, both on the Qualification Account or the Live Account.
IMPORTANT: A professional trader is obliged to pay $112 every month for exchange data feed (CME, CBOT, NYMEX, COMEX).
A trader with a non-professional status does not have to pay for the exchange data feed. This is included in the Qualification Account.
