Trade with FCM Partners

To my knowledge, all of these will serve retail (non-exchange member) accounts either directly or through introducing brokers (IB). Sometimes you can get a better deal through the IB.
  • ADM Investors / large, sound. They do a lot of commercial business. Their IBs might handle individual trader accounts.
  • Advantage / definitely check here. Known for low rates, good service for higher volume accounts.
  • AMP
  • Crossland / look up Deep Discount Brokerage, an IB. I think there's a recent acquisition (Wedbush?) here.
  • Dorman
  • Knight Capital
  • Phillip Futures
  • Rosenthal Collins / look up Cannon Trading, an IB (Cannon has a representative that posts to this site)
  • RJ O'Brien / largest independent, non-bank FCM

Most of the ones I've listed are large, but you should check out NFA BASIC and/or the CFTC site just to be sure they are well capitalized.

Velocity and Vision: I think Velocity was acquired. Vision had some recent regulatory issues and may no longer be taking new accounts.

Vision is still opening accounts. Where did you get your facts that Vision does not open accounts?
Some of the FCMs above had regulatory issues at some point as well.
We can offer CQG Q Trader without any problems.
