    I currently trade futures with optionsxpress, but am looking for a someone with lower commissions. I love their free live streaming futures charts. Do any of the lower commission firms provide free reliable streaming charts or is it best to get quotes from an outside vendor?
  2. How much is your commission with optionsxpress? One way may be to keep optionsxpress charting (use it for options and other trading) and find a better futures broker. I use Infinity. Global Futures has super-low commissions if you are volume trader.

    I am pretty sure options express bought OEC. Just ask them to use the OEC platform.

    You are better off with an FCM like options express or OEC. Infinity is just an IB.

    Thanks for the ideas, OEC looks pretty good.
