Hi,

Does anyone have any knowledge or experience working with Sweet Futures? They're an Introducing Broker since 2010 in Chicago.
I hadn't heard of them before but seem to be one of the very few offering access to Asian exchanges including Korea (which is rare) via Gain Capital.
So far, they've been responsive to my many questions (I'm in OZ and first time opening an acct with a US firm).
NFA BASIC check shows no real red flags, however CEO (Ian Sweet) was previously with BAKKT Clearing (formerly RCG) which did have some actions but no actions recorded directly against Sweet.

Clearing would be through Gain Capital who have a bit of history from doing a BASIC check. They were acquired by StoneX in 2020.

Interested in anyone's feedback/experience with these companies.

Thanks

Sounds like Stone X with a CQG feed. As long as you pay for the data, you can get quotes from all over the world. I am sure sweet is fine. There just a IB. They will collect a small commission from each trade. If you love there responses and feedback then that means they are worth the commission. You pay for excellent support. Thatís what you pay for. Thereís some good IBs out there.

I stumbled upon Sweet Futures indirectly. When I signed up for the 2024 Robbins Cup, a person from Sweet Futures handles the logistics for the IB, Robbins Trading. Whenever, I ran into issues, he would respond to my emails rather quickly and would even give me a follow up phone call for clarity.

If he is representative of Sweet Futures, then you'll be in good hands.
