I have been with assent for a long time. Why? 2 reasons. Relationships with the people I have worked with and worked for over the years, a level of trust that was built. 2nd....Anvil. Anvil has been the best trading platform I have ever used. SO many options. So much you can do. But alas the monthly fees. I know to some of you big fish 400 dollars a month in periphirals (vpn, news services, locates) before placing a trade won't seem much enlight of the commisions and fees but for the little guy out there like me who has been struggling to stay above water for the past 6 months, every little bit counts. So with that I'd like your suggestions to other prop firms out there with comparable systems and most importantly none of the penny and dime crap assent has slowly and steadily started piling on top of us. PS. Like many of you ,my volume has dropped. This year , 640k traded in january and 850k traded in feb. I thought this might be a important factor.
