I do not understand. Simple question - can someone who does 50 lots/month with a deposit of $10,000 get a $0.50 commission with ADMIS?

Yes, if they are truly self-directed (routing by Rithmic/clearing) will apply.
No overnight positions. Day Trading only.

I do not want to give anyone the impression that we "discriminate" FCMs based on account size.
rather, many small accounts want very low margins, and the more capitalized FCMs do not provide that.
They have 50% down to 25% but not the $500 ES margins, $1000 CL margins that some require.
Therefore, we try to match based on needs, not volume.

Sorry. I missed that reply.
I do not need anything like back office support, billing of clients etc. I JUST WANT TO BE TREATED AS A STANDARD SELF_DIRECTED CLIENT OF YOURS WITH A $0.50 RATE. Can I then go ahead and submit the application, please? I just want to be treated as anyone else. That is all.

Yes, please go ahead and apply. If you do not need any of the above (that you wanted originally), we would be happy to accomodate you. Thank you for your business and trust.

Got my account setup through Optimus last week and have nothing but positive things to say about them. Right from the start I felt comfortable with Matt and he along with Jake and Marilyn have made the entire process very smooth. Coming from trading spot forex for the last number of years I felt like I was drinking out of a firehose when I started to research options for shifting into futures. They presented a number of options for me and I never felt like I was being pushed or sold something. Having a partner I feel that I can trust in the team at Optimus has made the transition much more manageable and I would highly recommend them.

Matt - Currently using tradestation platform but would Like to clear thru another broker with more favorable daytrade margins than tradestation brokerage. Can Optimus do that?

We can discuss things with TradeStation on your behalf. But, it will depend on our account size, strategy, and risk.
We'll put the best efforts to help.

Sorry about your experience.

We have a very organized contact management system, and our brokers and I try to dial back all the customers.
Jake answers all our chats all day, and I honestly can not ask to be more responsive.
I am not sure during what hours you were on the chat.

Either way, I am very interested in helping you, so I will PM you now and ask for your email.
As soon as I get that, I could go back and see all the inquiries you had.
