Seems like NT does not work with TD for futures, Which brokerages work best with you on NT platform?

1. Latency and Speed.
2. Any all in one for stocks, futures and forex and options? Mostly looking for best futures platform but others are nice to have.
3. Lowest commissions and fees?
4. Customer Support.
5. Any other suggestions while evaluating?

Thanks,

A few years back Ninjatrader opened their own brokerage. If you are looking to open a new account and want to trade through the Ninjatrader platform you have to use the Ninjatrader Brokerage.

Thanks,

Other than their own brokerage, NinjaTrader only works with a very few brokers -- you can just go to their web site and see which ones. It's not like you have to go through a long decision process:

https://ninjatrader.com/Choice

The list is:

NinjaTrader Brokerage (surprise)
Interactive Brokers
Forex.com (foreign exchange(
TDAmeritrade (not futures, as you found out)

So there's your list. If you were to ask about NT Brokerage and Interactive Brokers, you would cover all the bases.

A little more help: If you want "lowest commissions and fees," you don't want IB. So if your cost is important, there you are. On the other hand, IB does do "stocks, futures and forex and options," which practically no other futures broker does.

If you use the Search box in the upper right corner of every page, you can get a ton of posts about either InteractiveBrokers or NT Brokerage. They each have their fans (and critics.)

Since it's their own platform, the NinjaTrader Brokerage is the one usually used. If cost and support for the platform are priorities, you have your answer now. Otherwise, check out IB.

From Bob's answer I see there is an alternative to Ninjatrader brokerage if using Ninjatrader. Not much of a choice unlike other platforms, but a small choice at least so ignore my reply.
