Recommendation for a Futures Options broker?

  1. I don't believe NinjaTrader offers futures options, despite what its advertising says, and I'm not sure about TradeStation. I've used Schwab (not as bad as you might think) and IB (not as good as you might think) but I'm wondering who else is out there. Running about 150K, doing almost nothing but selling naked ES calls way OTM with 45 to 90 day DTE, usually less than a 10 lot each time. I'm ultra-cost sensitive and demand 100% SPAN (which is how IB lost me -- jacking my margin up to 200% SPAN).
     
  2. I really like TD Ameritrade with the thinkorswim platform.

  4. Maybe I missed something but I saw no indications of them brokering OPTIONs on FUTURES. Let me know if I am wrong and where I can get pertinent information on margin and commission.
     
  5. after 25+ years of using IB and Schwab, this past year I moved some money from IB to AMP and from Schwab to Think or swim. So far I am very happy with both..
