After significant research into Futures Brokers, I whittled the list down from 31 to 3 - Global Futures, Open E Cry and Velocity Futures. Velocity post complete commissions on their website, Open E Cry provide a quote immediately upon request (but it excludes all Exchange and Regulatory fees, and when I take the highest Exchange fees for Non-Members, they are more expensive than Velocity), whilst Global has a 'Request a Quote' feature. On 18th April I requested a quote from Global Futures, specifying that I would like Ninja Trader and Trade Navigator as options for the trading platform. I received an immediate acknowledgement stating that a salesperson would be in touch in 1 or 2 days. On the 19th, I received a demo setup email from Ninja Trader, for the CQG package via AMP Clearing. Well, I have a new toy to play with, but today is the 25th and I have yet to hear from a Global Futures salesperson. I suppose business is so good that they have no time to look at new retail accounts like mine. Ah well, I was quite keen on Global because of the many nice things said on ET about them, but I suppose I am a little late joining the party. Can someone give me a current insight into Velocity Futures? The most recent comments I see on ET date back to late last year. I have seen some comments (from last year on another forum) about concerns relating to the TT feed for Ninja Trader. Is this an issue currently? NT state that carrying positions overnight is not supported with the TT feed. This does strike me as being a rather severe handicap, added to which there is no index data available. Also, there is very little about Vision Financial Markets and nothing on Optimus Trading Group. Has anybody here had experience with either? Both have the NT platform, which I have come to like. I would be grateful for any insights that more experienced folks could share with me.
