    im at the very beginning of my trading career and am having a harder time than i thought at choosing a daytrading brokerage. ive narrowed it down some and trying pick between Nobletrading, ThinkorSwim, MBtrading, Advanced Futures, Go Futures...but likely going with either of the first 4. looking over brokers page here hasnt quite given me the strong impressions to make an assured decision yet but i am iffy about MBtrading when it was looking good to me prior...
    i primarily want to trade futures and then options. i plan on starting a margin account with something around the neighborhood of $3500 with the ability to paper trade. for anyone whos kind enough to help me here, id like to hear about your experience trading under any of these brokers or any other ive overlooked esp. when it comes to reliability and ease of execution with their platforms, and number of futures products that can be traded (i would like a good selection). i hope i dont come off as too naive :)

    thanks:D :D
