Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

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.
