SPI(SFE) Futures Broker

Hey there, new member,

Ive been exhaustively trying to search for a reputable broker/fcm who can offer me access to SPI futures for a good rate, (i roughly do about 1000 rt's a month)..

many of the brokers dont respond to emails, which makes it difficult..

the problem is AMP is the only one thats showing up, and from what ive been reading thats something I may not wanna put myself through..

Has anyone found another futures broker that offers SPI, and hopefully TT X Trader?

I thought I got a hit with 'Variance Futures' but they quickly became impossible to contact, so I went to their FCM (Vision Financial) and theyre equally difficult to contact via email.

Does anyone know if its possible to get SFE markets if i went straight to RCG, Crossland or Dorman?

Any helps appreciated, cheers

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.

Well for a start there is BBY who are a reseller of IB or you could go directly to IB.

BBY is approx $7.50/side/contract and IB is $5/side/contract.

A 1000/month means that you day trade. I'm curious to know what general approach you use?

I also trade the SPI.

Neil.

hard to describe my approach, basically looking at the ladder make an opinion on where its going to go based on that and what other markets are up to, minimise risk and manage trade accordingly...

those commissions are way too high for me to even bother, in general my ratio is 1RT per 1.4 ticks, so im not too interested in giving away nearly half my profits in brokerage before tax..

AMP was offering, supposedly, around $2.60 a RT, but with all the problems associated with that.... ive just been browsing DeepDiscountTrading and thats roughly $4.20 per round turn, but much better service and the clearing firm seems a little more solid...

the search continues..

Wow, that's amazing. Both from a brokerage side as well as your trade size/duration.
You would also have to have a very good data feed if you are only looking for 1..2 points.
IB compresses the data and so does not show true volume.
Personally I'm trading on a 10 & 25 tick chart. Trying to at least get 5 points/trade.

Neil.

P.S. So who do you use as a data feed then?

AMP experience

I have not had any issues with AMP...when I email support I get a quick response by phone.

I have been trading ES this month using the CQG data connection. I got a great rate of $3.62rt despite not being a high volume trader. My schedule sometimes results in zero trades for the month

I think CQG is better than Zenfire with the added bonus of historical data and no inactivity fee

So, my experience with AMP has been good...

Hi,

So,
a) Who are DDT?
b) Is there a problem with AMP?

AMP can now connect to my charting and trading platform (Multicharts).

Neil.
