Well guys got this message today:

The clearing relationship between Stage 5 and AMP has come to an end

Sigh! We have not a lot of choice here in Canada and now this one is gone. I liked my realtionship with Stage5. Great service and support as well as teaching from Morad which was one of the reason for going with them. I just hope they will find a replacement for the clearing firms that can accept us poor little Canadians. Thanks to you Morad for the service you have provided. I'll miss your trading room.

Now, i am considering a combine with topsteptrader to at least be able to carry forward my trading activities or switch to CFD using my Oanda account. Not sure what path i will take.



Hang Tight @trendisyourfriend .....a solution should be right around the corner! We will contact you and the rest of the Stage 5 Community when this solution is available for traders in your area. In the meantime, please feel free to email your broker for more information. Keep in mind this solution is in the works and will hopefully be available in the next weeks!!!

I think a combine with @TopstepTrader would also be a great way to keep yourself involved in the markets. As always we appreciate the involvement and support and look forward to hopefully continuing our growth from here.

Best,
Anthony

I have been a client of S5 from the time FT & Anthony started their venture - which used to be called Vankar at the time. I will split the review in 2 categories -

1. Service - As a broker, S5 offers incredibly prompt & high quality service. If there is a complex issue, they will work with you to get to the right solution. I have been with other brokers before and can only vouch Anthony is the best that I have worked with.

2. Offerings - Well if you are an ES trader, chances are that you already know who FT is. If not, do yourself a favor and check out his website and ton of webinars - will definitely expedite your growth as a trader irrespective of the trading methodology you use. Besides all the tools, webinars, chat room, trader bites, etc.., what has impressed me the most is FT's integrity and willingness to share.

I would highly recommend S5.

@struts Thank you for your kind words. We are glad your experience at Stage 5 has been positive. Our team works hard to operate side-by-side with you as a partner. S5 only exists due to quality members like yourself and the rest of the traders in the community. Our vision to make futures brokerage an exceptional experience for traders, seems like it may finally be slowly coming to life. Thank you for being a part of it!

Anthony

Thank you @xplorer!

We look forward to having you on board with the Stage 5 Trading Team as well! We are really excited about this partnership, and believe this synergy and addition of the TF4L discount division at Stage 5 is the next step in fulfilling our vision and commitment of providing futures traders unparalleled trading experiences. The transition for your account should be seamless as the current structure will remain the same. Only the Introducing Broker will change to Stage 5 on the date of the transition.

BTW, did you know the S5 Trade Analyzer Cloud on CQG is now available in beta?!? Let us know if you would be interested in testing it out! We would love to get your feedback on it.

If you have any questions about this exciting news and what it will mean for you, please contact us at any time. We look forward to having you!

Best,
Anthony

This is a strange move. TF4L was most likely going to the wall due to the cases of fraud, cheating and embezzlement the NFA have launched against them

https://www.nfa.futures.org/basicnet/CaseDocument.aspx?seqnum=4420

Whilst I imagine this acquisition was cheap, it comes with a hell of a lot of baggage.

Will Pratik Patel be part of the organisation after the acquisition?

Great observation @UpsideDown!

I am happy you raised awareness so that we can address it in its entirety upfront and hopefully avoid any confusion. First and foremost, we have the utmost respect for the NFA. They are effective in protecting the public as well as our interests in dealing with traders. This is a core value and vision of Stage 5 Trading.

From what we understand, most of the accusations towards Patel were regarding actions taken years before he was registered with the NFA as a broker. Regardless, this is neither here nor there as no matter the outcome from the investigation our aim is to provide continuity to the traders under Patel and to enhance the services they have access to. We are confident that the full truth will be brought to the surface from this investigation and we wish the best for all.

With that being said, the partnership discussions about joining forces have been in play well before any of these regulatory issues came to our attention....although they certainly have made discussions more interesting! Partnership conversations arose from the synergies that both IBs offered by combining forces. The next step in Stage 5’s development has been to build a direct discount division for some time which is something that Patel has built independently. With this acquisition of the discount brokerage solutions built by Patel, it is a win-win-win for all parties, we believe. We now have the capability of offering traders opportunities for additional services through the full service brokerage community of Stage 5.

As of April 1st, 2017, Patel Futures LLC will cease to exist and Stage 5 Trading Corp will be handling its business. At which time, Pratik Patel will not be joining Stage 5 as a broker. If you have any questions about this exciting news and what it will mean for you, please contact us at any time. We do not see any unusual baggage or issues relating to this move. We maintain industry-leading standards in risk management, trading tools, solutions and fanatical trader support. Those will remain the same and are a benefit to Patel’s current traders.

In the meantime, for your peace of mind we want to point out that some things will not change:

If you are a current trader at Patel Futures, LLC, the current platform solution, data, pricing, intraday margin and setup will remain the same.
• Your platform, data feed, login credentials will remain the same
• Your fee structure will not change.
• Your intraday margin will not change.
• Your services provided will continue to be offered by Stage 5 Trading

o Processes

Stage 5 began servicing traders in 2012 with a vision of offering an unparalleled futures trader experience by providing professional trading tools, reliability, platform flexibility, a structured trading environment, and highest level of customer service in the industry. Over that time we’ve forged many long-term partnerships, platform development, proactive communications, and creative solutions that we believe has helped us fulfil that vision. We believe this partnership is the next step in producing even greater opportunities by adding this discount trading division within the Stage 5 infrastructure hopefully having a positive effect on more traders.
