Online Broker Question

Discussion in 'Index Futures' started by bigmrfrank, Jan 4, 2006.

  1. Can anyone recommend a reputable online futures broker? I've looked at PFG but am looking elsewhere due to the heavy sales pressure since my first inquiry. Starting account size would be 15k if that matters. Hope I'm in the right forum and thanks in advance, Frank

    Global Futures, many use IB (InteractiveBrokers), the biggest. IB requires 2k margin intraday, GF $500. Commissions are roughly the same.

    I think there are a select few firms, the major ones being Global, IB, Velocity, and Alaron. The best margin for intraday seems to be Global of those listed.

    I'm guessing the lack of response is more due to the fact that 2 of the major ones were already listed here.
