Is it a dead end case to see options on futures of the EUREX or other european exchanges available for trading at NinjaBrokerage through CQG platform ? I was told due to Legal reasons against it in the USA, is that really the case ?

Our understanding is the CFTC has deemed options on Eurex to be unsuitable for investors and therefore only non-US customers can trade them. We are not pursuing alternate (non-US) relationships at this time to offer options on Eurex and will instead focus on growing the number of available foreign exchanges/markets.
Not sure if it is helpful, but here is a link to the CFTC no action relief pages: - CFTC

The following user says Thank You to NT Brokerage for this post:
I am looking to possibly open an account with NT brokerage and have been doing a trial and have a few questions?
1. Having the Gomi indicators working, in sim mode, seems to cause a delay or lag or slow down in data. Has anyone noticed that in a live account? I was wondering how powerful their data stream is? Or have the Gomi Indicators been improved so much, it just causes a lag? I noticed an indicator has been posted, so if you are using the Gomi Indicators, it will make NT data 1st priority, in case you have anything else open.
What I did to solve the problem, was just close all my Gomi Charts and I didn't have any other issues, with receiving data.
2. I used to have IB as my broker and they are totally electronic, no trading desk, no human comes into the equation when I place a trade. Is the NT brokerage account, completely electronic?
I have had some brokerage accounts, that had horrible fills, sometimes 10 ticks off from my initial entry.
Would like to hear, trader's experiences with having a live NT trading account.
Just send me a private message if you have a live NT brokerage account, that would be greatly appreciated?
I have brought up these questions with NT and am waiting to hear back from them: about data stream and if it is electronic. The response I got back, didn't really address my question so I thought, I would ask fellow traders what their experience has been. I think, NT is great and do not want to want to cause them any grief, please just send me your experience through private message, on this forum.

@NinjaTrader Do you also offer "Top of the Book"/Best Bid/Best Ask Quotes for a lower monthly Fee?
Some Traders do Not need the Depth/Levels other than Best Bid/Best Ask Quotes.
This is normally $1 per Exchange if offered by the Brokerage.

I have used Ninjatrader for a long time and I wanted to try out their brokerage because they have always had good support. So I have been trading with an IRA account for some time and have used the same custodian for years. When I tried to open a small account at NTB and told them I was using a different custodian. I was emailed a response :
I find this strange that Ninjatrader Brokerage would only allow the use of a single custodian. Am I missing something ? Since it seems like they would be cutting out a lot of people who have IRAs at places like MTrust.
