Hi @mattz

Long shot question - do any of your FCM's support KOSPI200 futures on Korean Exchange? I can see CQG has the feed, but not many support it.

Cheers!

Hello @amoeba, I will ask around tomorrow if anyone can accept it amongst our FCMs.
However, I suspect that even a US-based FCM would have to go through a foreign FCM that has a membership on the South Korean exchange. This may impact your cost if you are not a high volume trader.

Thanks,
Matt Z

Thanks Matt, please don't waste too much of your time on it, was just a passing question, I would not be looking at high volume.

You welcome. I will PM you once I know just for general purposes.

If you are not a high vol trader consider the mini Dax or mini Nikkei if you are seeking something in that time zone.

Thanks,
Matt Z

mattz are right.You should go with local firm or stick with nikkei mini.For example IB charge much more then local brokerages-lowest IB fee plan is highest at local brokerage.Minimum for opening account there is 15k - if you interested PM me.

I wanted to give a big thank you to Matt of Optimus Futures. In the last month I switched from ADMIS to CQG to finally AMP. Matt helped me immensely with all the paperwork and login stuff. I couldn't have done this without him. Thank you, Matt. You've always been a great help.

I just saw that there was a post in this thread and took a look.

I have no experience with Optimus, and this is not a plug.

But I know that @mattz is a straight shooter, having read his posts for years. (And he didn't pay me for that either. )

Not a recommendation, just a comment. But it's true.

Bob.

Bob, Thank you, I appreciate your comments and kind words. The reality is that up and coming traders and experienced traders could be overwhelmed with information about platforms, data, execution, etc.

I try my best to guide new customers through this clutter and many times have to "unfasten" an entire thought process where people think something is factual when it is not. The phrase goes the "The customer is always right" but, the customer also has to be informed to make the right decision, and that is our ultimate goal at Optimus: Inform, recommend and respect the final decision that the traders make.

There are so many gratuitous insults on the web, I thought I would give a gratuitous compliment.
