Hi guys,

GFF Brokers (a futures io site sponsor) recently celebrated their brokerage anniversary, and we wanted to send them a little "Happy Anniversary" gift.

They've sent me a picture below, and I wanted to share. We are glad everyone enjoyed the cake and cupcakes

Hi Greg @GFFBrokers,

I was wondering if you could briefly tell us how you handle customers that want to receive free trials for data feeds and platforms?

Also, do you open accounts in Canada? It is a common question that a lot of people search for.

It should be noted, this offer has been extended again -- I believe it's thru the end of 2019 but @GFFBrokers can confirm.

This fault lies entirely with me, not GFF, due to my health issue then multiple family emergencies all requiring travel abroad unexpectedly.

I'm working on it and take complete responsibility for the delay, it is in no way GFF's fault.

Hey Mike,

Clients just need to opt in to our offer for Free CME market data and once they open a live account and meet the funding requirements, their account will be flagged to have the data feed fees reimbursed. They can also call our office and mention the offer to one of our brokers.

And regarding Canadian clients, we do accept Canadian clients and the Free market data offer also applies to them.

Thank you,
Greg Khojikian

Hi Greg, this raises interesting questions for me – do your brokers provide platform technical support? For example, a client doesn’t know how to setup his chart or tools or how to customize an indicator, etc… is that something that GFF would handle directly, or is that something the client would have to seek out help elsewhere for?

Hey Mike,
Our experienced technical support staff is all in-house. They are available to assist with everything from walking traders through downloading and setting up a demo account all the way to helping with indicator installation. We're able to remote access the traders computer if needed.

If a trader is using a third party indicators we're not familiar with, one of our experienced technicians can jump on a call with the vendor and assist the trader.
