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.

best and least expensive futures broker

As Choke so "eloquently" put it there is no absolute "best and least expensive" futures broker. It depends on how and what you trade.
I would suggest googling and starting a conversation with these:

NINJA Brokerage ( especially if you have a ninja liscense)
Stage Five
Optimus Futures

There are other good ones.... Just have to search.

Most will neogotiate contract pricing. In my search for a broker to switch to I have had conversations with all of these and found them to be transparent and pleasant and priced competively. Consider platform options, data feed, and customer service, amongst other things when making up your mind.
