Looking for an alternative to PFG Best

Since the demise of PFG Best, I am in the market for a new broker. I have been reading the different threads on futures.io (formerly BMT), but I havenít found what I am looking for.

I was hoping someone could help me point me in the right direction and it may help out anyone else who might have (had) a PFG account.

I am looking for a US based broker which has futures, forex and will let me live trade mini forex (not the M6E). Iím not trading futures at this point, but I do review charts on futures. One of these days I will hopefully be able to play with the big kids and trade 6E, TF and Es.

Also, I am on ninja trader platform. NT is not perfect, but is meets my needs and I would rather not learn a new platform.

Thank you in advance for any help.

MBtrading... i use 'em, they're nice and versatile. I don't trade forex but i've read they're very good.
IMHO worth looking into.

I have approximate answers, possible beliefs and different degrees of certainty of different things. But I'm not absolutely sure of anything and there are many things i don't know anything about.

Agree, based on needing both futures and forex, MBT is a good option. You can also look at InteractiveBrokers.

Didn't know that about Mirus either, thanks. It seems a Mirus account using Ninjatrader on Forex is done through Gain Capital/Forex.com Gain NinjaTrader FX | Mirus Forex


To OP. I also recommend TDAmeritrade and their platform thinkorswim desktop as an alternative especially with concerns about solvency. And the DOM is very simple to use. They offer trading on mini futures and forex however you choose. Also commission based forex available:

...

I wonder what type of datas you get from Gain Capital (What's the source). Maybe we can match their feed with Kinetick using the professional option for Forex datas as the basic Kinetick feed for Forex comes from FXCM.
