as an FYI, crossland is the only FCM that I came across that would allow the advanced features on CQG Trader to be activated, and that would also rebate the transaction fees after the $395 for the trader is hit in fees.. everyone else just keep charging one for transaction fees that dont really exist after certain amount.

Yes! Together with the cheapest commissions I could find that's one of the reasons I went to Crossland. They support all the tools of the professional and are honest in calculating costs for it. I went with Howard from deepdisounttrading.com. There is no better service than them imho.

Crossland on the other hand is not for the newbie trader, in fact, I don't think they really care about new traders, brokers websites are normally all about getting you into trading, not with crossland. They are also 4 times bigger than for example Velocity, and cheaper.

cqg front end

Aside from the fact that CQG now offers data for NT; their DOM trader has been available for a reasonable price (w/o charts of course) for some time. Frankly I found it a little clunky...prefer TT. I don't fancy NT as a front end either unless it proves stable. I've seen how, ahem, at least one broker allowed traders in back room to share a feed (like monitors strung on Christmas lights). Everyone paid a third. DTN seems fine to me. You need at least a remote connection to broker/exchange to compete with scalpers.

Do you or others here hold electronic licenses? I you average 30 r/t day at CME it pays. If you're trading multiple exchanges perhaps not.

I like velocity, and I like crossland... give crossland the acct mgmt platform from veloticy and you have a match made in heaven.. the only other FCM with a decent platform that I like (and keep in mind this is a personal choice) is vision financial... advantage(IMO the best out of all) but has the worst acct platform I have ever experienced.

Crossland is not that big though, so not sure where you get that data from... in terms of customer funds they have about $120MM as of Dec 2010... compared to Velocity with about $74MM... they are better capitalized overall, 8 times better than Velocity ... still, not sure how you got that they are 4 times bigger.. anyhow, they are good overall...

I dont like RAND for account mgmt though, kind of like the more up to date acct mgmt platforms like what velocity/vision/ibkr/amtd(tos)/oex/etc uses... many of the FCM's are still on the 20th century when it comes to account mgmt platforms.. that is the only thing I would ding CROSSLAND for... the use of RAND for acct mgmt..

Am tossing around some ideas for an upcoming CQG webinar, will you guys please let me know in as much detail as you can any particular topics or items you want to be focused on....

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Big fan and user of CQG for a long time. Maybe have them discuss the different types of order entries available through CQG vs the "average" order entry DoM's out there. I think many traders fail to utilize the importance and advantages of different order entry tools that are available out there. Maybe have them discuss their "Study Following Order System".

Cheers,
PB

it will be kind of hard to pick one, but I would be interested more on their autotrading/signal eval/system based tools...

they have a lot of videos on using the platform and a few of their product specialists have videos as well on specific functionality.. but I rather see indeppth details on the functionality they are discussing on the videos from their product specialists..

I think this is a good idea. IMO, a retail futures trader can't do better than CQG. PB mentioned smart orders, which are nice. Another feature is TFlow, but the concept of volume delta is already covered extensively on this site. The most appealing aspect of CQG, at least for me, is stability, data integrity and order routing (which is excellent). Things most beginning traders neglect, but they are critical if you're serious about trading. I also like that you can get years of tick data with their historical API.
