I am about to open an account and I would like to have your opinion here: I have been looking for a broker with which I can trade futures and options on as many markets as possible (basically currencies, rates, indices and raw materials), as I would like to diversify my investments-you need to spread the risk when dealing with options. Many brokers offer options only on certain markets. For example Saxo Bank will let you trade all the futures but only enables customers to trade forex options. Other brokers will let you trade options but only over the phone and for big amounts. Do you reckon IB is overall the best? Thanks for your advice. Hope I will be posting my strategies soon.
