New to futures, need a broker.

  1. Hello,

    I've been trading stocks for a little while now and been reading a lot of books on futures trading. I'm looking to trade index futures and possibly Ag futures but I don't want to be limited. I am going to have about 10k to start with and I plan to take it slow with that. I am looking for a good broker but am lost. I am currently using TD Ameritrade for stocks and like them. I would also love to have an app for my iPhone if possible but not a requirement. Any advice would be great.

  2. Sounds like you might need a full-service or broker-assisted trading account, so maybe inquire with this firm.
  3. RJ O'brien is pretty good. They are at the average as far as commission rates. But the data seemed stable. There were a few outages last year, but that was resolved a while back. Things have been stable for a long while.
