I'm having trouble finding legit reviews of brokers that use OEC. I understand they were bought out by Gain awhile ago and Gain may have gotten in some trouble for fraud? Too bad because I used the OEC platform years ago and liked it. I have thinkorswim through Ameritrade now and I find it clunky and counterintuitive. I considered opening an account with futuresonline but was scared off by the lack of trustworthy reviews...I've been out of the loop for awhile so I'm pretty wary of scams.

Thanks!

I don't use it/them, but IIRC Stage 5 Trader is a white label copy of OEC - https://stage5trading.com/try-a-demo/

I use OEC which is Gain Capital now. I've had an account now with them for almost 8-9 years. I haven't always been active because I lost quite a bit of monies in the beginning But I have to say their platform is really good! One of the best I have used and I've tried a lot of these platforms in commodity business. They've gone through a lot of changes with the platform but the version it is now and they also have iBroker for your smart phone or tablet is super convenient. I'm on my iPad a lot and I do check many of my trades on my iPad but I do still place most of my trades on my desktop. Great firm to work with. I was introduced to them by my broker Cannon Trading which they are really good too. But overall Gain's platform is definitely one of the best!

I should add that I had no issues with OEC/GAIN but was forced to close the account, rather than choosing to do so due to GAIN no longer being unable to accept residents of NZ.

Hi -- I'm using OEC provided by Daniel's Trading ("DTPro platform), a subsidiary of Gain Capital. I like the platform, and broker service with efficient friendly brokers.

Gain Capital formerly known as OEC is a great clearing firm. We've cleared with them for over 15 years and have a great standing relationship. They have a reliable platform that is free which also has smartphone and web access. You also can use many third party softwares that are compatible with the Gain Data Feed like Sierra Charts, eSignal, Jigsaw and the list goes on.

Our software E-Futures is the white label version of OEC Trader but have many features we have added on like access to trading signals and different trading layouts

PM with any questions about Cannon Trading (800) 454-9572 (310) 859-9572. Trading commodity futures, forex and options involves substantial risk of loss. The recommendations contained in this post are of opinion only and do not guarantee any profits. These are risky markets and only risk capital should be used. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
