Searching reliable broker with low commisions

Hello. I would love to get some help, since finding anything reliable in sea of google adds became pain!

I am not happy with my current broker commisions and I would like to find another broker that:

1) Accept oversea customer
2) Offers low commisions
3) Little or no monthly fees since there are weeks I dont trae at all
4) Low initial deposit

I use a Ninjatrader for analysis, then a separate broker to execute. I dont need much, just simple interface to set a market/limit order and a stoploss. I will take care about other things in my Ninjatrader.

Edit: I am trading futures, grains, natural gas and so on.

Why not use Ninjabrokerage if you already are on their platform ?

How many round trips do you execute on a month ?

Tanks for another anwser! ATM I am used to do analysis on Ninjatrader. I watch the markets and study my things. Platform is free on sim and data are also free on sim. When I see opportunity to make a real trade, I log in to my separate broker with no platform and no monthly fees and take it. So everything is free, but the commisions, they are expensive.

I would like to improve that. I would like to do a one or two trades per day, four or five days per week, three or four weeks per month, so average about 25 or 30 trades per month. This might change in time but my strategy and system offers about one signal per hour, I have three hours per day to trade after my dayjob. So this is my estimation. Would be awesome if I had a lot of money to spend on high end platforms and systems, whole day to trade, but this is how it is

I would like to use Ninjatrader Brokerage in time, but at this moment I am searching for upgreade of my broker just for buying and selling. Do you have any reccomandations for that?

I think doing manual entry/exit
one fiasco and you will loose the price of Ninjtrader life time license and commission for next few hundred trades

Well yes that is a valid point, I am aware of that. Hmm... maybe I should reconsider my approach after all.

If you trade with Ninja brokerage the platform comes for free (although a little higher commissions). How much do you pay now and maybe we can compare with what we use?

Thanks for anwser. I pay about 10 dollars for purchase and 10 dolars for sell if its a one contract, 6 dollars if it is 2 or more. Account is free, it is linked with my bank account, so I can get in and out money for free at any time. I can get money from my borker account into wallet in my pants in two hours. I pay no monthly payments.

It was fine when I took just a couple of trades every now and then, but a 20 dollar commisions represent two ticks on Natural Gas, which is quite a disadvantage. When you add some slippage, maybe in both ways, we can get to 4 ticks

I love NinjaTrader, but their site is a mess. Is there some way to switch to some client interface, to get rid of silly adds and pictures, just to see usefull stuff. I didnt even know that platform is free when you use Ninjatrader Brokerage. That would be great.

I dont like manual executions on separate platform, it is not comfortable and it is dangerous. But it can be done.
