Are there any brokers which give X-Trader for "free" (bundled with commissions) besides Velocity?

I searched and the only other one I see is etrade. $3/trade for futures. Ouch!

Now I know why X_Trader is "free" with velocity. It's been down for 1 hour. Thankfully I was trading on sim. For traders who had on big size when it froze up that must have really sucked. So I chat with them and they say "we're working on it". That was 30 minutes ago.

Does this happen often with velocity? It's not giving me much confidence. I can only remember zenfire being down once during RTH and that's in 2 years.

Which broker is that? The "problem" of TT is that your platform depends on TT server at your IB. Better clients get better servers/net speed.

By the way, have you considered CQG or even CTS T4? Im trying out T4.

Velocity was down for over an hour, maybe more. Maybe it's coincidence and that's their own downtime per year but I'll be watching them closely.

I haven't looked at CQG or CTS T4. Do they show the cumulative volume on the DOM? That's mainly what I'm looking for so that I can see if contracts are traded or pulled.

For specific questions about CQG please use the CQG thread:

For specific questions about T4 please use the T4 thread:

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

CQG looks very interesting, I'm going to do a demo. Thanks for the links to the other threads, I'm subscribed to the CQG thread. Velocity doesn't offer T4.

futuresbroker.com is free and less ($4.26) I think they are a subsidiary of Velocity though.

Hello Cunparis - I've had an account with Velocity for 2 months now and also had a problem yesterday. However when I contacted them, they were extremely helpful. They ran a trace route from my machine to their servers showing me the issue was the internet and not them at all. After contacting my ISP they too confirmed my connection was failing on it's way to the Velocity servers. I noticed you're in Paris? If I were that far away I think I'd have to colocate to remove the many ''hops'' needed to reach the US servers. I highly recommend Velocity (excellent portal & features) and X_TRADER. Dale more than matched my previous brokers commissions and I'm not even paying for X_TRADER anymore!
