Looking for a broker that offers a free trading platform

Hi there,

I am looking for a broker which offers a trading platform for free (which includes charts)

I am willing to make an initial deposit of around $8000.

I am currently with Ironbeam, but they make you pay $49/month just to use Firetip!

Im trying to keep my trading costs down! commissions alone are enough!

Any suggestions?

Ash.

Hi - I'm sure that if you shop around a bit you'll find some brokerage firms offer the platform "for free".

I use the quotes because in reality nothing is free. Probably they have their commissions a little higher so that they recover the platform cost that way.

Anyway, I know that NinjaTrader Brokerage offers the platform for free with "basic features" if you open an account with them. I have not checked their commissions so I don't know how competitive they are.

Is this for trading Futures or Shares?

If Futures then look at:

Optimus Futures - @mattz is a member here.

or

AMP Futures

Both of these offer Free platforms and commissions that have not been 'beefed up' to cover the free platform cost.

In my view, both of these brokers offer better and more complete (fully functioning) software than Ninja Traders free version.

MarketDelta Cloud doesn't have any recurring platform fee or "one time" fees. Normal order routing, commissions, and exchange fees apply, but those exist with any platform. Hope this helps!

If you have any questions about the products or services offered by MarketDelta, please send me a Private Message or use the futures.io "Ask Me Anything" thread.

Steer as far away from Firetip as you can. I have seen multiple issue with people using it.

AND....the customers who use it barely call for tech support...which is good engineering.
