granted the trend is towards electronic. Most pit traded futures still have the depth (further months) and volume. FCM Brokers take electronic orders and execute them via the desk on the floor. So why there are no broker reviews or any mention of this on ET? Refco and Alaron are the two mentioned. Refco is demised and mainly Forex branch mentioned and Alaron has Zero review (probably due to it's lack of focus on the small trader and minimum fee charged to dormant accounts) Not focusing on these markets is unwise, especially while the e-Mini market catches up with all delivery months and all markets in volume and institutional use. The main reason - there is no way to trade futures spreads electronically via IB or other e-Futures brokers without seriously limiting yourself in markets to trade!
