Recommendation for broker/platform for scalp trading Futures

Hello.

I am looking into trying to trade Futures. I have a paper trading account with TDAmeritrade so I was trading Futures with ToS. I think that ToS is a bit clunky and some people mentioned that if you are trying to get just a few ticks at a time (scalping) then ToS isn't a good platform to use, and also TDA has higher than usual commissions.

I am wondering for anyone that has tried scalping or does it regularly, if there are recommendations for brokers/platforms?

I would recommend Sierra +Rithmic or X Trader (Now could be fee based per transaction)

Thanks,

I love Tradestation and am sure Matt can help you with understanding that.

For Order Flow and certain events I follow it has to be NinjaTrader.

Cheers n best

How much volume are you looking to trade? If you're say just doing 300 round turns a month, then any of the normal brokers, IB, Infinity, etc should all be fine.

If you're doing something north of say 2,500 and need X-Trader, then probably best to reach out to one of the shops out in Chicago to negotiate the volume discounts.

Search nadex and use the existing thread.

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)
