    Try Gallo Global Markets:
    They also have a great staff of programmers/traders that can help you with your trading system.
  4. Do you want to take over their system or bring your own one in ?

    If you want to trade Eurex, you should choose a brokerage firm that has a branch or representatives in Europe that can help you during the first hours of trading.

    It's so hard to solve problems when you have to talk to those guys working in the heart of the night in Chicago...

    If you have a system, wouldn't it be cheaper to hire a programmer to help you write it? You then have control over the code and flexibility on tweaking it when necessary.

    If your system's good, what's to prevent others from 'borrowing' it?
  9. I have heard of this guys out of San Fran.

    They have access to a few good systems and also act as Introducing Broker with a few FCM.

    I believe they charge under 10 bucks to execute traders and have programmers on staff to help with your system development. Good luck.
  10. Can't get cheaper than that. I'll be sending my list in this morning.
