Best broker for emicro trading?

  1. I have been waiting 12 days for AMP to approve me, thinking about going somewhere else. Who else has comparable rates? Tradovate? Ninjatrader?

    AMP emicro is almost free. None of above can offer that.

    I daytrade micros at IBKR. Paying $0.25 per side per contract commission.
    Its quite sufficient.

    It's not an automated strategy so I don't pay for real time data at IBKR. I update my spreadsheet with the free real time data from yahoo finance.

  9. There was some reason I never use them. Don't they require like a $1M account?

    Or have terrible customer support and you have to resolve your issues here?

    How much do you pay for a data feed there?

    I think IB lowered their account minimum a few years back. Now I think you only need 10k or less to open an account. I pay about $4 per month for data. It's pretty easy to meet the minimum trade requirement to get most of the data fees refunded. I'd also consider TD ameritrade if you don't care about API support.
