    Could you please recommend software platform/broker setup for the following:

    I would like to automate a simple mechanical TA based covered calls EOD system trading major US market securities. Automation of screening is not needed because instruments are predefined. Back testing capability would be nice.

    Since my account is rather sizable (few 100,000s), I'd like to somehow avoid MF Global outcome, if possible.:) I think it also may allow me to trade at some firms where there is a high acct minimum.
