I am trying to determine what the best course of action might be I am tired of using retail direct access platforms for daytrading ES. I am trying to figure out what the next step upward might be. All possibilities below are meant to facilitate ES trading in a more professional manner(software reliability & backup support) and at a better rate (closer to CME rates). In the running: 1. CME IOM seat lease, direct globex connection, availability of $50/day cut off in globex fees 2. Prop Futures Firm-Firm Cap/trading own funds, can do as remote but most likely will require a serious move. 3. Professional broker and institutional access software Did I leave any option out?
