Their TransAct platform

I have been using their Sierra charts on a demo account to get used to them , and find Sierra charts very good . I have been working with Kimberly from Cannon Trading and she has been very helpful in answering a few questions . My only concern is that oco and or bracket orders etc. are not held on their server . I don't have the very best internet connection at times so that is a concern for an intraday trader like myself . I have been using TOS and really like their charting but lately the charts are not keeping up with the price movement in these fast markets we are now having .I would look at the Sierra charts at the same time and they were having no problem at all keeping up . I do realize Sierra is a much lighter program than TOS but slow charts make for a very difficult trading decision in some cases for sure .

Commission Quote for Canadian Clients

I have reviewed the commission rates as they are posted on the Cannon website.

I am wondering if those posted rates apply to Canadian clients.

Just curious because I know of some Canadian clients that are paying significantly more than those posted rates.

Wondering why there is so much variation.

hello refine and sorry for such late reply!

The commissions are function of more than a few factors:

style of trade
software
trading/margin behavior
level of help if any you need from a broker
The FCM we place you with based on your overall needs.

if you have not done so already, please call or email us directly, mention futures.io and you can get an exact quote in minutes.
800-454-9572 or ilan@cannontrading.com
