    Who is the best broker for US options and US stocks? Fast is great, but for now, I need CHEAP.

    Also, I would like a broker that is compatible with NinjaTrader, both for order execution and data feed (historic and present). Thanks a lot.
  2. I don't use this although I do use ninja.

    But I talked to someone who uses ninja with ampfutures as the broker and a zenfire feed.
  3. It plays nice with IB.

    Thank you both.

    I'm looking for a data provider that has 15 years of minute data for SPY or the S&P500. Does this exist?
  5. possibly Tradestation...?

    You can find your answer here on their webpage:

    These are the brokers that are compatible with NT.

    As you can see, most of the list is futures only, which is what NT I believe was designed for, but there are a few standout names on the list: IB, MBT, and TD Ameritrade.

    If you are looking for an interface with a prop platform, ala Laser or Anvil, no such animal.
