Best futures broker for swing traders?

Hi,
I am wondering what brokers do you recommend for swing traders. I think server side OCO is highly preferrable for swing traders. I currently know only four brokers supporting that: DDT, Optimus, IB and TD Ameritrade.
Someone told me that IB said they do not guarantee correct cancellation of one side when the other side is triggered. This is a bit annoying. Are there any brokers that guarantee this? If no then probably I would have to only place a stop loss.


Thank you guys!

Hi, are you entering trades through ninjatrader or directly into TWS?

Cheers

I haven't purchased NT. So I can only consider to use NT as charting and TWS to place the order. Though in the future I may buy NT if necessary.

You don't want to use TD Ameritrade for any futures trading. The feed is slow and the fills are awful. I have run TDA and Zen-Fire side by side and seen as much as a 3 tick difference in fill on ES.
