Stage 5 - very impressed

Hi All,
I just wanted to throw a shout out/compliment to this broker. I've test driven many demos from many IBs/platforms. I am superimpressed with Stage 5. They were kind enough to push out my demo another 2 weeks which has helped me a lot to get really comfortable with their superb (and free) S5 Trader. I ultimately will open an account with them and just wanted to share my elation in finding out about them through BigMike's site.
Thanks!

Hi, I was trying to get on the Future traders 71 website and when you try to go anywhere except the home page it moves all your pages to the right so all a viewer can see is the left margin. Don't know if it's my computer or yours, but I've tried it now for 4 days straight and it's still screwy. Unless Stage 5 is replacing the FT71 site? Thanks Steve

Well, it's your website. My skype address is Steve Sandberg. I'm having trouble getting a screen shot of a website instead of a chart. Sorry

I've cleaned my cookies out and I only have one extension. Every other website runs just fine. But whenever I open the FutureTrader71 website the home page comes up just fine. But when I try to go anywhere else it shifts everything to the right and gives no sliderbar to move any thing around. I just get a black page with the left margin on the the right side of my screen.

Cookies are not the same as the cache.

Also try hitting Ctrl-F5 a couple of times while on a problem page.
