    for trading the crude oil emiNYs?

    I've looked into it a bit and am thinking about going with IB.

    Thanks for your time.

  3. Any decent broker is going to offer the QM so I would shop around if you are looking for good rates. Some broker will spout off some stuff about it not being an index mini, so it's more expensive, blah blah. It is more expensive to trade there, but not that much more, so be careful and ask questions. I've traded it thru ProActive Futures and Mirus with no problems.

    Thanks Browns fan. I'm going to look a little more into Proactive now, I like the looks of that one...Anything else you can tell me about them would be great.

    Regards,

    You should be able to find a broker who will charge 10 bucks or so a round-turn. Let me know what you find for prices, I'm curious...

    The front-end system is key too. Trading Technologies' X-Trader platform is arguably the best, but it's on the pricier side (1000-1500 a month depeding on the FCM), but PATSystems puts out a decent product and CQG has a good front-end system too that is reasonably priced.

    I'd be curious to hear what you find...
