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.

Thanks for the mention. We would be more than happy to assist you with the platform of TT, margins, etc.
We will also give you some choices as far as clearing and the SPAN that will be applied.

Thank you,

Hi Matt,

Thanks
