    Seriously considering opening an account with GlobalFutures to trade futues.

    What is your experience with them? I'll be using J-Trader, is it any good?

    Which clearing frim to use, they have three to choose from: RCG, REFCO, or GHCO?

    Anyone that can help here ??


    ps Can you get your money out when you need it?

    Someone here must trade through GlobalFutures. Or have traded in past.

    You can PM me if you wish.

    Help, please

  4. I'm sure a lot of people use GlobalFutures, I think they are all just taking a vacation at the moment or something :p

  6. A guy I talked to used them for a year. I think he deals with Richard there. He likes them, but J Trader is a joke, outdated slow junk. They have alot of platforms, but I would use X Trader or Ninja Zen, I currently do through Pro Active Futures. Check out Golbal on NFA search they have gotten nailed a couple of times I believe. They are a big firm in So Cal, but you probably know that if you did your homework.
  7. Yes, J-Trader is a joke.
    Lack of functions.
    It is a killer for active traders. :(
  8. I'm trying to find out a little more info too.
  9. why global? when i was trying to get my commissions set i felt i was dealing with a used car salesperson.
    why not transact, or open e cry or TS8 or IB. there is an advantage of using a FCM with their own platform so that don't have the added cost. consider that.

    Clearing with RCG involves a serious bunch of paperwork first.
