for futures. I am helping someone.
So far I have narrowed it down to IB and Global Futures (jTrader)
Frankly I do not think one should trade futures in the IRA (even if it is spreads only) With spreads execution is the key and access to markets. Globex spreads are ok for a small $3000 account. (but IB is a little flaky)
Are there any brokers that are better than these?
