    Looks good. Only i see no info on commissions...
  4. I was quoted this in on march 5th

    "Our minimum is $5,000. We can offer you a rate of $4.80 a round turn for the electronic contracts and $16.00 a round turn for the open outcry markets."

    Kinda high, I think they will work with you like any other broker though if you do volume.
  5. You might want to check out Alaron Trading and some of it's IBs. I have heard some people telling me of extremely low rates they are getting. When I started, I had a very high rate, but others are getting much lower. They send checks out very quickly, and never had an issue and offer multiple platforms.

    I went through Greenstreet, but there are others that I have heard of.

    I believe almost all the platforms have demo's.

    I think i'd rather go with MBT - there commission is half that and platform is good..
  7. Hello,

    I checked out Alaron's site and it looks impressive but I noticed as of July 31, 2006 they apparently no longer act as direct fx broker? The notice seems to suggest that they will pass on customers to other brokers...what is that about?
