Welcome to futures.io.

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.

s

Yes, we have started a relationship with TradeStation where we can offer their platform via their FCM.
There will be no material difference, except that we will be able to service you and assist you technically
There are no added costs associated by using Optimus Futures, as far as platform cost and/or commissions.

We are very excited about this opportunity to work with TradeStation, because they are very professional in their approach and attitude.

Thanks,
Matt

New Account Experience

As with pretty much all the reviews I've read of Matt and his team at Optimus, I have only positive things to say.

This is my first live-money futures account and the team at Optimus has been very helpful in getting me set up. They have gone out of their way to answer any and all of the questions I've had. It's been a real pleasure to speak 1:1 with folks who are able to address technical problems and advise on solutions all the while being treated with respect. Emails and phone calls were returned the same day and in most cases Matt was the one responding. His approach is pragmatic and no-nonsense, which I really appreciate. My impression is that he's interested in creating a customer relationship, not necessarily just a new account.

A big thanks to Matt and the team at Optimus for providing a great experience.

Hi @mattz if one already has an account with AMP is there a benefit to open an account with Optimus?

@learning0101 We give the exact same representation in terms of real estate size to each of the FCMs we work with on our open an account page. I do not "hide" any association we have with any FCM.
This is build in such a way to give you the freedom to choose any software, and FCM and the pricing with it.

As per your question: If you wish to be serviced by our team that is known to be friendly and tech savvy, I would encourage you to establish an account with us. We can match all of our FCM's pricing without getting into price conflicts.

Thanks,
Matt

Is optimus Amp?

Hi , is Optimus affiliated with AMP or any other broker?

I don't care for optimus, They may do a great job but the person i have spoken with rubbed me wrong the first time I spoke to him and now the second time. He wasted good time insisting i called him SEVERAL times. I shouldn't have to defend myself when inquiring on a service. I had only called him ONCE and that was a year ago, or in the beginning of the year.

They are affiliated in that AMP is one of Optimus's FCM's these days.

On a side note, I used to live in Marietta. Beautiful place. This was back in 1990 or so.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

I won't post again as this is off-topic, but I just spent the last 10 minutes on Google Maps trying to find my old house. I remember the street/neighborhood pretty well because I rode my bike so much around the countryclub and school. But I was only about 8 or 9, so really it was around 1985 or so. I was too young to pay attention to things like street names apparently, because none of them look familiar!

@JudyQ, The majority of customers who establish a relationship with Optimus Futures are traders who have switched to us from an existing broker or utilize us in addition to the one they already have. Therefore, we have learned to ask very direct questions to see what we can do in order to fill the gap.

Additionally, we have mentioned that you have contacted us in the past and this was not meant to be confrontational, but instead to point out that you have experienced recurring issues before. As I recall, your issue is with the quality of data you are receiving from your current broker. We were just trying to get to the bottom line and find a solution.

If the above was perceived and construed in a rude manner, we apologize for the misunderstanding.

Thank you
Matt
