Hello everyone, This is my first post here although I have been lurking for quite some time. I am looking to begin trading index futures after a lengthly time paper trading(over 1 year), developing an edge, and cementing other aspects such as profit and loss management with a mentor. What I do need is some advice on choosing a broker that will fit my needs. I have narrowed it down after about 1 month of due diligence to 3 brokers: Interactive Brokers Tradestation OpenECry Initially I'll be finding the account with 30,000. I'll be looking to trade no more than 2 contracts at a time maximum (2 because my strategies involve scaling in and out) so margin isn't a great concern but fair pricing and reliability are major concerns. Reliability is one thing I cannot find true facts about on these brokers web pages. Would someone with experience using any of these brokers please comment concerning the above? Thanks Allot!
