    I use IB, they do futures, equity, and forex. They do not charge overnite fees for futures contracts. That is what soured me on Tradestation.

    Apparently, Tradestation wants to charge you $ 0.10 per contract per night. That could add $3.00 a month per month or $36 dollars a year per contract, if you are in deferred contracts.

    Think or swim, does not yet handle all futures contracts, as does IB and Tradestation.
  3. Dukascopy for Forex (Liquidity and API/Platform)
    Velocity for Futures (Free TT License)
    OpeneCRY For Futures and Future Options / Algo tradng.
    TOS is ok if you use their tools. Not so good for algo trading.

    Is the main problem with TOS Low latency or the black box community within TOS?
