Hey guys, I just cast my vote for best futures broker with Optimus Futures and Rithmic.

I can't say enough good stuff about the business they run. Perhaps, the best customer service in the industry.

Most of my life has revolved around serving others and fixing complex technical problems. Hence, when I say Matt, Jen, and Chad over at Optimus are as good as it gets at, I am not exaggerating. The quality of service was a high priority to me since this was my first experience trading futures live. All Rookies are prone to make mistakes and I am glad I went through them with the support of the Optimus staff.

I'd also like to note, I rarely if ever get bad volume or tick data using their Rithmic feed and don't have any of the same problems my friends complain about, getting order fills.

As far as fees, I pay less than any of the other brokers that offer decent data feeds.

Lastly, Matt himself personally referred me to one of his friends, a former WorldCup of International Investors champ to seek a more effective trading strategy that helped me become a better trader.

And finally, had it not been for this forum, I would not have found out about Optimus Futures to begin with.

Thank you, Big Mike and all the Optimus Futures staff.

@Big Mike: Why is MTPredictor nominated to be the "Best Trading Plattform"? You can't trade with the software and it's focused to the MTP related Setups only?

Koepisch. I have voted for it anyway, in that category. I can use a couple of free live data feeds, using the internal downloader functionality which comes with the software. There are a number of other live feeds that MTPredictor can download for evaluation, as well as, end of day feeds.

The charting package is good, with tools that give the trader an eye on potential future highs and lows in advance, which are described as 'trend termination', known as [1] DP areas found by previous pivot bars and also [2] DP decision points that are calculated within the software.

I really can't do justice in explaining the MTPredictor v7.5 software, for that you need to watch one of the many videos that can be found on the web. I know Big Mike had Steve Griffiths in to briefly explain it and that recording is available for viewing.

Thumbs up for MTPredictor.

There are currently over 700 people online. Yesterday over 7,500 people logged on to futures.io (formerly BMT).

Guys, I have taken the time to make the voting possible (hours of work). Now I need you to take the time to actually vote (seconds of work).

Thank you.

Mike

@Big Mike,

Mike, can you put a banner at the top of the Main page? You seem to have the link hidden in the ChatBox so many people may not see that link.

I sent an email blast to all who have not declined emails. I will replace the webinar banner when there are no upcoming events.

You didn't nominate them. And neither did anyone else.

The voting has closed.

I will post the results this weekend, as soon as I finish creating the special events for June which is my top priority at the moment.
