We’re in the process of making enhancements to our futures trading experience. Unfortunately, that also means that we’ll be unable to open new futures accounts until August 7, 2017, when the changes are expected to be complete. If you have any questions, or to have us contact you when new accounts are available again, please reach out to our Futures Services Team at futures.support@etrade.com or 1-877-553-8887.
