Thanks for your help. It is strange that they do not have the most wanted info on the website.

Hi,

No withdrawals fees or problems is a must.

You mention later you are considering Tradovate, they have withdrawal fees. I imagine a list of brokers that don't charge could be quite short.

This is news to me. On the referred page there is no mention of withdrawal fees outside of expedited delivery of a check or any wire. Checks are okay for me. Wires will be a second resort, and they cost money everywhere.

As I read more about Tradovate, their maximum deposit amount by ACH is $5,000.00.

Yes, that's what I meant, I haven't seen a futures broker that doesn't charge withdrawal fees for wire transfers (or cheques).

Even regular, not expedited cheques?

That's more detail than I know sorry. I live in the UK so will only use wire transfers.
You will have to check with them.

Most brokers that I have seen do not charge for incoming and outcoming cheques. I am trying to avoid those who do.

What do you appreciate about Tradovate?

What do they have for $10K and 4-8 contracts /ES trading?

I would suggest at least 10x that amount to trade that type volume, 10k is on the small size even for 1 contract

You should look into Optimus Futures. I've been with then for many years. Matt Z can give you many options in terms of platforms, data feeds, and clearing. You will receive very good service from them.
