A few notes, on a few threads...

First, FT71's personal AMA thread:

@FuturesTrader71 has his own personal trading methodology, and countless webinars where he talks about his trading in-depth. He also has his own AMA thread, which is NOT related to Edge Clear Brokerage. That AMA is located here:



Second, Edge Clear's main broker thread where you can see reviews/comments and talk about their brokerage:



Third, Edge Clear's direct access AMA thread (you are reading this thread now) which is best utilized for direct questions to senior staff at Edge Clear:



I ask the community to help us keep these three separate threads focused as best we can. Each serves its own unique purpose, and we don't want everything to be combined -- let's try to keep things organized.

Thanks @bigmike!

The commission pools described in April have since turned into Edge Pool. Open registration for futures.io members can be found here for July: http://myed.ge/futuresio

We plan to have a separate offering for futures.io Elite members very soon.

Thanks!

#EdgeWisdom segment of today deals with traders taking impulsive or unplanned trades that jeopardize performance. See below for identification of the trader's complaint and the likely core issue that must be addressed. What are your thoughts on this?!

Hello @EdgeClear!

I see on your site that you support three data-feeds with Sierra Chart; Rithmic, CQG, and Trading Technologies.

Since you work with TT, I wanted to ask if you are supporting the Sierra Chart Order-Routing Service with Data as this is (as I understand it) essentially a set of TT services consisting of backend-execution as well as SC's Denali Exchange Data Feed being TT-based as well if I'm not mistaken. [EDIT: the Denali market data-feed is NOT TT-based according to the docs linked, I misread them).

Are these services something you support and do you have any opinions about these data and execution implementations?

I know @FuturesTrader71 has spoken kindly of DTN IQFeed's (non-executable) market-data in the past and I wonder if there is any useful comparison or pros/cons vs Denali you guys wanted to share?

Thanks and have a great upcoming week!

Hi @snax,

Thank you for reaching out. We fully support the Sierra Chart order-routing service with data. Your Edge Clear account will be executing through the TT order routing service with the Denali data feed powering your charts. The Denali data feed provides full market depth data (up to 1400 levels) for CME, CBOT, Nymex, and Comex which we look at as an advantage.

We believe DTNIQ Feed is one of the best data feeds in the industry, but as you mentioned, it is not an execution feed. Meaning, we still need to be set up with an order routing service for execution. This is where TT and Sierra come into play.

All in all, we have really enjoyed working with the combination of Sierra and TT. Please contact us to be introduced to your personal broker at Edge Clear for more details on how to get started: https://edgeclear.com/contact-us/

We look forward to hearing from you!

Thanks!

Hi guys,

I've updated the Elite Discounts page to add Edge Clear's new offer, which is now available for Elite Members:

https://futures.io/offers



Edge Clear is offering Elite Members FREE CME Globex Level 1 Data until June 2021, with 10 contracts monthly minimum. Fee credited back at current market rates (8/1/20).

You can sign-up for their offer directly here:

https://futures.io/elite_partner.php?do=process&offerid_21=1

futures io has made special arrangements with these companies to provide discounted services for Elite Members. These discounts are only offered to Elite Members.

Note: In some cases, these vendors may be futures io sponsors - but we do not receive referral compensation for these offers. We simply worked out these special deals to help our Elite Members who have chosen to support the site. Even though we believe these are great products and services, you should always do your own research before doing business with a company.

Thanks,
-- Big Mike
