How to get access to trading CME products?


I'm interested in trading futures on NYMEX and CBOT. I looked at what Interactive Brokers can provide, but they're fairly limited: They provide access to the outright contract and some spreads, but I'd like to be able to trade all instruments offered by those exchanges, including deep spreads.

I looked at X-Trader from Trading Technologies, but I cannot seem to figure out if by having their 1k per month access I can actually get DMA access to those exchanges, or if they just offer a product and you have to get exchange access by other means. How do you get access to DMA? On the CME website there doesn't seem to be an option for retail traders.

Would anybody have suggestions for me which providers give me the ability to have direct market access to those exchanges and ideally an API?

Thank you!
