The industry has changed a lot in the 10+ years since I signed on with TradeStation and I've recently enjoyed a very steep learning curve researching, getting myself updated and deciding to switch to Sierra Chart on Rithmic. However I do not at all enjoy trying to pick a FCM/Broker, where to fund an account.

So, please, if your Mom was looking for a broker/clearing firm, who would you recommend?

I'm a self-directed day trader, only need to call the trade desk if my internet goes out, may want occasional tech support, seek low day trade margins and transaction costs, trading 50-100 futures contracts (one side) per day: a mix of CL, GC, HO, RB, TF.

All suggestions welcome, especially from traders using Rithmic.

Thank you,

PS: I already heard the "Mom -- DON'T DO IT!" recommendation.

We have been supporting Rithmic and Sierra for many years and have members here who use us.
Take us into considerations.

Thank you,
Optimus Futures
