Did you miss the "+ exchange fees" part? No way they're cheap. You want a broker located in Van Nuys, with no human face to put to the brokerage, and who is clearly trying to appear to be affiliated with Sierra Chart (the name, and the mention of Denali)?

I didn’t. As you know, the exchange, regulatory & technology (often) fees are not compressible and the same everywhere. In terms of pure commissions, $ 0.33 per side ($3?36 per RT on the YM) is lower than AMP (fixed: $ 0.50), Edge Clear (default: $ 0.69) and every other, unless you're very high volume and can benefit from Advantage's tiered structure directly, for instance.

The choice of FCM is more primordial than the Introducing Broker, hence I'm investigating. I've dealt with Advantage in the past satisfactorily and it is valued here. The members of this shop are identified and screened by the NFA

My building’s neighborhood has a company called Sierra Trading, I don’t mind it. If this broker wanted to simplify his offer by offering SC only and match their name accordingly, fine with me without over-suspicion. I mentioned them on the SC board and SC didn't seem bothered.

By the way, there are reputable brokers frequently recommended here with whom you can notice so-so practices in terms of sale strategies & speeches, up within webinars. So sorry, I'm neutral, impartial & asking for fair opinion.

Lastly, it is advertised on FIO banners, so let's make together due diligence further please.

Hey guys,

Zytrade is a new Site Sponsor here at futures io as of this month. It is their brokerage that is offering the "Sierra Brokers" branding, marketing to those traders using Sierra Chart (quite a few here at FIO).

I've actually been working with Devin for a few years to get them onboard as a site sponsor, previously under the Halifax name.

There will be an introductory webinar that covers the product and offers Q&A from Zytrade (Sierra Brokers) shortly. I'll post notice in this thread once it's ready for registrations.

You can find Zytrade's NFA registration here:

NFA ID 0523354

Hey guys,
There will be an introductory webinar that covers the product and offers Q&A from Zytrade (Sierra Brokers) shortly. I'll post notice in this thread once it's ready for registrations.

Advantage Futures is known to be accommodating tech setups.
What I’d like to see covered is the explanation of the SC order routing (TT FIX) coupled to Eurex trading (not only data) for an extra flat monthly fee of 50€ + 23€ for data.

As far as I know, it’s the only accessible FCM capable to arrange this custom combination at the moment.
Even SierraChart recommends CQG or TT when it comes to Eurex trading (not only data), over their own SC order routing via TT FIX...

https://www.sierrachart.com/SupportBoard.php?PostID=226826

So in my opinion, it’s a unique situation, that adds up to commissions as well as intraday margins that can go lower (got the confirmation) than the retail aggressive AMP, while still giving access to a larger FCM, usually targeting rather semi-pros.
https://www.nfa.futures.org/BasicNet/basic-profile.aspx?nfaid=UQ97gzPKMxI%3D

At the moment, I’m seeing rather pros than cons & a distinguishing offer, filling a gap.
Only the misc fees like withdrawals and especially the tiered FX conversions can be sensitively higher though.

Sierra says EUREX is not technically available yet with their Denali - TT trading solution. Currently only CME exchange is technically available by Sierra Chart for their Denali - TT trading solution. Are they telling you EUREX is available ??

With SC, Eurex not available with Denali yet (planned for this year though) but https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/SierraChartRealTimeFuturesStockDataFeed.php

With Sierra Broker, aside Denali / SC order routing - TT FIX (not TT) for the CME, support answered that Advantage Futures can additionally setup Eurex for 50 € /mo + Eurex data for 23€ /mo
Confirmation please ?

Advantage charges additional 50 €/mo for EUREX plus the normal monthly EUREX exchange data fees? 73 € per month?

So, is this “broker” a one man operation like DeepDiscountBroker is ?
Still Missing In Action, since more than 10 days...
Although I believe that once setup, you can rely on the FCM instead of IB, luckily ?
Disappointing event, cause on paper, it was a perfect fit to suit my needs.
