I am considering opening an account with Optimus Futures, and if things don't pan out with my current FCM, they're at the top of my list, thanks to the good reviews here and, moreso, after speaking with Matt about several aspects of getting access to international markets in context of the clearing options available to U.S. retail-level clients. Matt was very insightful and listened well to the specific concerns that I had.

Since moving from TD Ameritrade/thinkorswim to Optimus Futures I have dramatically increased my knowledge of futures trading and trading platforms! I'm also NOT getting raped on commissions/margins like I was with tda/tos, which is nice. Matt (the owner) has been very helpful and responsive. I'm very satisfied with my decision to switch to Optimus Futures. It was one of the smartest moves I've made in my futures trading career so far! Now for my next trick: I'm going to stop losing money! lol!

Thank you for your kind words, and above all, I am glad we could help. We have developed a relationship with a network of FCMs alongside technology providers to facilitate any futures trader.
Further, we are currently working on educational resources to help traders of all time frames. We will roll it out slowly as I get more feedback from programmers and experienced traders who are amongst our customers.

Thank you,

I opened an account with Optimus after using TOS for the past several years. The process of opening the account was very easy thanks to Matt. I had a few initial setup issues which Matt was quick to resolve. Excellent customer service. Highly recommended.

Thank you at @KevinP. Always nice to hear when we can switch customers from others and the service is done well. We are well aware of the hesitation when switching from one broker to another.

Sorry if this was asked before: Do OPTIMUS offer options writing (mainly ratio spreads) on ES futures at competitive rates?

Thanks

@Forex37, Thank you for your question.

Yes, Optimus Futures does offer Options selling at competitive rates. in fact, we offer this through some of the largest and most capitalized FCMs such as ADM Investor Services. We could also offer Wedbush and ED&F Financia l for Options. If you go to our site you can see the entire list. Depending on the margins requirements and technology needs, we will help you find the right solution.

We can use CQG, TT, CTS technology for execution. However, the OAK technology which is offered by ADM exclusively does not have any cost of execution, routing fees, etc.

Finally, Specifically, for Options traders, ADM offers a comprehensive margin analysis platform(MAP).
MAP allows you to determine the margin requirements for individual "What If" scenarios, or your entire portfolio.

Thank you,
Matt Z

I can verify that Optimus has me setup for option selling

Without going into all the details, i can say I am very happy with the setup, technology and the service by Matt/Optimus through the whole process

Can you trade option ratio spreads as one order with OAK?

The web site mentions spread orders, but it sounds more like futures spreads.
