Hi,

It is also a category of the "futures.io (formerly BMT) Best of Trading 2011" contest : Best Of Trading - Big Mike Trading

The results (available soon, I guess) will probably bring some answers to your question.

Nicolas

I would highly encourage you to give Matt a call Optimus Futures. If you read around on this board, you will find a number of highly satisfied customers. With the criteria you are looking at, I would say that you will find Matt to be a near perfect fit.

I have recently moved brokerages and been with Optimus for about a month now. It was the smoothest transition I could have imagined. The customer support/service was well beyond expected...I felt like I was being treated like I had a 10 Million dollar account.

Feel free to PM me if you have any other questions...

For me the best is Zaner (Zaner: Commodities, Futures, Forex and Cash Metals Brokers), especially thank the customer service.

The person in charge of my account, Anthony Aloisio, is a very nice guy that always answer quickly and efficiently to all my questions or needs. By experience with other brokers I do know that this issue could be very annoying, with Anthony no problem at all.

Perhaps not the cheapest commissions, but there are no hidden costs and for me is basic the customer service, and with Zaner is great.

Just want to point out that firms like Mirus Futures are not full clearing firms (they are more like IBs that clear through other firms). Advantage Futures, on the other hand, is a full-clearing broker (i.e. there is no go between) that provides all the front-end and back-end support.

4 posts today and every one of them promoting Advantage, do you work for them or something?
