Looking for FCM / Multi-asset Broker for High Volume Trading

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a cheap and reliable futures broker for someone trading anywhere from 10k-30k round trips a month, aside from IB?

 

Must:

- Cheap. Rates close / similar to those applicable to prop firms and what arcades are charging.

- Access to all major futures markets worldwide

- Supports CQG NET and/or TT NET, but open to other trading platforms with fast & reliable datafeed and routings from HK or Singapore.

 

Bonus:

- Access to other markets and assets classes (e.g. stocks, FX) global

- Supports cross margining

 

Thanks,

Klotzki

Klotski-

 

I have recently moved my accounts from Tradestation and RJO to Optimus Futures, who clear with Vision Financial Markets.

 

The reason for my move began with the technology they offer, particularly the Rithmic data feed and platform interface (I use Multicharts and it works perfectly). But Optimus is not the only one offering good technology (I'm sure they interface with TT and/or CQG, though I would bet that Rithmic is just as good and definitely much much cheaper).

 

The playing field has been leveled with the brokerage business and what it comes down to now is the client service and attention that a customer receives. In this case Optimus is just amazing. Maybe I was jaded by the lack of attention I received from Tradestation, and RJO was not too bad, but Optimus really went the extra mile.

 

Matt, Jennifer, Sarah and the rest of the staff are patient, dedicated people. I got responses from Matt sometimes at 6 or 7 in the eve. PST and they are located in central time.

 

Anyway, if it is any help I would highly recommend Optimus for any type of trading needs. If they don't offer what you need they will bend over backwards to help you. I'm sure you will find their pricing is competitive as well. http://www.optimusfutures.com/

Thank you for the kind words on this forum about Optimus Trading Group.

Our main solution most trading platforms is Rithmic because of it's low latency and execution.

 

The Rithmic servers are based in Chicago so it's most suitable for the CME/CBOT products. We do have clientele outside the US that does not require any hosted solutions because they satisfied with the execution. However, if you require a hosted solution we have 3rd party solutions, and if you need to host that right on top of Rithmic equipment, that is possible as well.

 

Here are a few links that would give you an insight into the Rithmic solution:

We also have a site dedicated to the NinjaTrader+Rithmic capability and you can read about it here: NinjaTrader Rithmic Capability

 

We are here to answer any questions you might have and we respect your choice of brokers.

 

Matt

 

There is a substantial risk of loss in futures trading.

    • USDCHF Faces Further Weakness On Close Lower USDCHF faces further weakness on close lower following its past week losses. Resistance comes in at the 1.0050 level. A break of here will clear the way for more gain towards the 1.0100 level. Above here, resistance lies at the 1.0150 level and then the 1.0250 level. On the downside, support is seen at the 0.9950 level. A turn below there will set the stage for more decline towards the 0.9900 level. And then the 0.9850 level. Its daily risk is bearish and pointing lower suggesting further weakness. All in all, USDCHF faces further downside pressure on price pullback threats.
    • While at the gym today, I remembered that I passed on 2 trades this morning that both turned out to be high runners. I literally had the thought "this one is no good" as if I would know the future.  It's easy to overlook it but this is where the awareness and probabilistic mindset comes into play. I realize I have been trying to filter out losers instead of taking the setups. Next week, I will focus on taking all trades instead of filtering. 
    • I traded alot today. 9 trades, 8 losers and BEs, 1 runner that paid for them all. Gotta keep swinging! totaled 240 bps before commission. The first winner on W, I did not count - it was a mistake that led to profit. I felt like a machine, kept pulling the trigger, watch the 1min chart, see it doesn't go anywhere, take my small loss... over and over... then one takes off... Let it run... the whole time I was thinking I hope that the one winner will pay for all the losers. I was tempted to close out the winner early. I had no idea that the payoff distribution for this strategy would be so extreme - 8 tiny losses before hitting a big win. Pays to keep the losses tiny and keep swinging.
