Cannon Trading's Ilan Levy-Mayer (Vice President) - Ask Me Anything (AMA)

Ilan Levy-Mayer, Vice President of Cannon Trading, will be monitoring this thread so that he may answer any questions that you post here relating to Cannon Trading brokerage products and services.

Please keep in mind that some customer service/technical support issues are best handled through proper channels at Cannon Trading, and not here in this thread.

About Cannon Trading
Cannon Trading Co., (members of the NFA, CFTC and BBB) has been incorporated in Beverly Hills since 1988. At Cannon, a variety of trading platforms in all pricing ranges are available at some of the most competitive rates in the industry.

Our brokers are highly trained and available at all times to their clients, they take great pride in their high-quality client service. At some other brokerages, a trader may have to speak with an unlicensed professional - or even a telemarketer - before reaching someone who understands trading. Those minutes cost money. At Cannon Trading Company, every call is answered by a licensed broker.

Cannon has also been praised by several leading industry publications over the last few years. We were featured as the first "online brokers review" by Futures Magazine and received a recent Readers’ Choice Award from Trader Planet.

Cannon is committed to helping traders achieve profits, educate themselves about the markets, and create successful trading strategies. In addition to supplying full service relationships and discounted self-directed trading, Cannon offers Automated Trading Systems, Algorithms (both proprietary and 3rd party), and professionally managed CTA programs with the appropriate D-Docs available upon request after preliminary consultation.

Cannon’s excellent client reviews speak for themselves, you can read them here. We take pride in providing every client the support they need to be the best trader they can be.

About Ilan
Ilan (pronounced Elon) is the Vice President and Senior Broker at Cannon Trading Company.

He has been in the futures business for over 20 years, and in this time, has made a name for himself as well as Cannon Trading Company.

On February 13th, 2008, Ilan was listed as a principal of Cannon Trading Co., where some of his duties include communications with FCMs, online marketing, risk management, software evaluation and general office management.

Ilan is tech savvy and familiar with many of the trading platforms, as well as ALGO design, trade systems evaluations and more.

Ilan is also a CTA with LEVEX Capital Management and holds an MBA in finance and marketing. He is also a former professional basketball player who lives with his wife and children in Los Angeles, CA. You can learn more about Ilan here: https://www.cannontrading.com/community/ilan-levy-mayer

Does your broker accept BC residents in Canada?

Yes we do accept BC residents as clients.
We can offer multiple platform choice and both online/broker assist and trading systems.
Canadian clients will need to sign an additional form.
I recommend reaching out on our site or calling 800-454-9572 and chatting with one of our brokers.
Thank you @skfutures
