    I am currently looking for a futures broker based in Europe. I will trade the Eurex and Liffe, with a capital of 20 000 - 30 000 euros and 200-300 round lot/month.

    Ive´ been looking at Velocity Futures and like their concept with free trading platform, good commissions and low intra day margin.
    Unfortunately, they are based in the US. Will the Latency be a problem, due to first send (bid or ask) orders from europe to US, and then from US back to Europe?

    The futures brokers in Europe, can´t seem to give a good commission (send some enquries) or free stabil platform (x-trader) etc. etc.

    Are there any european brokers who fit my needs? Or will there be a latency problem if I choose to go with a US broker?

    Any help outhere fellow traders.

    Kind regards
