I also am curious about the NT choice

I am in process of opening an NT account and am faced with the same choice. Earlier in the thread lax99 touched on fills, slippage and so forth. I have been unable to find anything here through a search for Phillip and wonder if anyone else using them and if so, how has the service been. Any other comments on Dorman would be welcome as well.

Hi, please use the existing main NT brokerage thread. I am closing this one to avoid a split topic

Sent from my phone

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.
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.
