The brokers, known as "futures commission merchants" or FCMs, are paying increasingly large sums to comply with new regulations, bolster their cyber security systems, and do business with exchanges, among other areas.The vanishing FCMs are one way the futures trading business is changing in the United States. The brokers hold client money in what are known as "segregated accounts," and they are entitled to invest that money in low-risk securities. There were 74 FCMs in the United States at the beginning of 2015, down from 93 a year earlier, and 154 prior to the financial crisis, according to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission."Sadly, it appears that the markets where 'derivatives' were born are quickly losing their core service providers, possibly forever," CFTC Commissioner Christopher Giancarlo said in a statement in June.

The decline is significant because it means more risk is concentrated among fewer firms and some customers of FCMs may find it more difficult to gain access to the market because they do not generate enough profit for the brokers to justify taking them on.The dwindling number of FCMs has also made it more expensive for some customers to use derivatives. In 2014 interest income made up less than 10 percent of the $4 billion in revenue made by futures brokers, down from nearly 50 percent of $7.1 billion in 2008, according to TABB Group.
