Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Could you elaborate at least for your case, what can you offer as an introducing broker to IB for customer's, rather than them going direct with IB, in terms of costs savings or benefits?

I apologize, I thought that your question was a general comparison between an IB and FCM.
We don't have a formal relationship with IB the brokerage house.

PM with any questions about optimusfutures (800) 771-6748 (561) 367 8686. THERE IS A SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF LOSS IN FUTURES TRADING.

Does using an introducing broker for IB provide any additional savings/benefits other than initial account opening minimum, like lower fees/comm's/margins, or additional services/benefits? Looking to use IB with Sierrachart.

I am using IB with Sierrachart through meintrade and, aside from better customer service, I'm not aware of any additional benefits.

I don't have any experience with other introducing brokers, so you might need to do some reasearch.
