The PRICE Futures Group was founded in 1988 by Walter Thomas (Tom) Price, III and initially registered with the National Futures Association in September of 1989 as a Futures Commission Merchant and Commodity Trading Advisor ("CTA").[2]

In May of 1990, The PRICE Futures Group withdrew its NFA registration as a CTA. In August of 1990 it withdrew its registration as an Futures Commission Merchant and registered as an Introducing Broker. Then, in October of 1993 The Price Futures Group withdrew its NFA registration altogether when Walter Thomas (Tom) Price, III accepted a position with R.J. O'Brien Associates LLC.[3]

The Price Futures Group was re-registered with National Futures Association in June of 1995, when Tom Price re-established the firm and signed a clearing agreement with the LIT Division of First Options of Chicago. Two of the first three employees were Ron Mark[4] and Jack Scoville,[5] who are still with the firm.

In February of 1997, Price Capital Markets was registered with the NFA and launched as a Price Futures Group affiliated Commodity Trading Advisor.[6]

In November of 1997, John J. Lothian, founder of MarketsWiki, joined The Price Futures Group as President of the newly established Electronic Trading Division.[7]

In December of 1998, another affiliate was launched, Price Asset Management ("PAM"). PAM initially registered as a Commodity Trading Advisor and then in 2000 registered as a Commodity Pool Operator.[8]

In July of 2002, The Price Futures Group registered with the NFA as a Broker-Dealer for the purpose of brokering single stock futures in the U.S.

In March of 2007, Roxanne M. Bennett joined Price Asset Management as Marketing Director to develop new products and coordinate the marketing efforts of the existing products offered by Price Asset Management and its affiliates.[9]

In March of 2010, Price Futures Group Inc. announced that it would expand its Chicago and Scottsdale offices, as well as open new branch offices in Westminster, Colorado and Boca Raton, Florida.[10]

In June of 2012, Phil Flynn joined The Price Group. Also, in June of 2012, John J. Lothian resigned as a branch manager of the firm.

In July 2012, the Group and Citi announced an agreement to introduce Price Futures clients to CitiFX Pro, a retail forex trading platform. The partnership is seen as an effort to link the Price Group's introducing broker arm with Citi's trading platform. [11]
