Hi Folks,
I trade Options,Futures,Forex,Stock by Interactivebroker.
My choise to work by interactivebrokers is because it has these characteristics:
1) I can trade all financial instruments i want: Options,Futures,Forex,Stock
2) I can trade all foreign markets
3) The most important it has the best API to have a total control of events to automatic trading.
4) It has segregated account

Now I am looking another one or two to add at Intercatibrokers that has all 4 characteristics and
my focuos is to find good API.

I am very professional so i need a Really a good counterpart like or better of Interactivebrokers.
All my trading is fully automated so is very important that API are really good because my software works with API that have evolved and well designed as those of IB. Many years of developing.

Many thanks.

Hi,

that will be difficult search for a retail trader. The only one which comes to my mind is TD Ameritrade (TOS), but they do not accept European customers anymore.

So that the only other option will be to choose a broker for each group separately - equities (and options), futures and Forex. You can select the best ones in that case.

Any particular reasons why you want to have additional brokers?

Some brokers who do not allow non US traders:
Scottrade
OptionsHouse
Tradeking

OptionsXpress has higher fees for non US traders.


I would like to hear your opinions about the following brokers:
SpeedTrader
MasterTrader
RealFastTrader
Eoption
