Option Selling Platform and Broker

Hi Everybody,

I currently utilize ThinkorSwim ("TOS")and I like their technology, however, I would like to move funds to a Futures broker to achieve the following objectives:

A) Obtain access to all listed futures and options expirations

AND

B) Obtain minimum SPAN margining requirements and no restrictions on selling futures options

My considerations are as follows:

1) Easy to use and highly reliable futures options trading platform with excellent MOBILE capability (iPad and iPhone) (bonus if similar to TOS as I an accustomed to the platform). I trade almost exclusively off iPad.

2) Highly reputable broker/clearing arrangement to minimize risk of insolvency or impropriety.

Thank you in advance for any input. Much appreciated.

Regarding a platform, Trading Technologies recently added new features on the TT platform for the trading of options. We now support Options Chain and a Volatility Curve Manager. You may learn about them in the video I've included.

For brokerage, @mattz is active in this forum and may be able to help you there.
