You say you are a beginner and you want to start trading 4-8 contracts. Do you really think this is a good idea? I guess your account-size will be small, so I would say start trading 1 contract and use the lease version of NT.
If you want to trade 100 contracts, your account-size should be 500k or larger.

Friend, of course, I will start with 1 contract. Even when I grow to trade 4-8 and more contracts, I am planning to have the first trade of every day with 1 contract only. I brought up these numbers so that people have an idea what kind of broker I would like to have so that I do not have to change horses in the middle of the race.

I hear your suggestion to stay with NT. I am also considering TastyWroks, tradovate, and Zumo. Have you had any experience with any of them? What is your preferred broker?
