    Hi ppl,

    I am trying to decide which broker to choose and I only plan to trade with futures for now.

    I've calculated the total rt-s for each of the brokers in the title considering the listed fees, and it goes something like this:

    Mirus 4.4rt
    IB 4rt
    Futurebroker 3.5
    Velocity 3.5 (3.83rt, if NT is included in the package)

    I plan to use NT/ZenFire, but i could really use your help with choosing the best broker for futures trading, considering the total commision fees.
    What in your opinion is the best one for futures trading, your experience with any of the listed, best for price etc. ?
    People say good things about Mirus, but they're more expansive that the rest (TOS not included ofcourse). Is their pricing justified compared to the lower prices of the other brokers?

    I apologize if there was a similar topic already and I missed it.

    Of the three, only Mirus offers NT/Zen.

    I have no idea what futurebroker is.
