Rock Solid Futures Broker
I have been trading futures for 5 years but started with equity options. The thought of a “broker is a broker” is how I entered this...

The Reliable Solution
It's over two years now that I am with Optimus Futures. I tried two other brokerage firms before but never looked back since I joined Optimus

Matt and his team at Optimus understand that competitive Commissions and margins are important but absolutely not enough for serious traders.

For the Optimus team you are not just an account number but rather a valued customer.

They focus first and foremost on reliability availability and on supplying a variety of tools for the customer to choose.

Most trading platforms are supported and Optimus made the effort to create a huge archive of instructional videos for all those platforms and their technical staff really know those platforms inside out.

As to data feed Optimus offer the Rithmic data feed for free. Rithmic is one of the best feeds for futures. It is a real tick by tick unfiltered feed and it is known for it's fast execution.

For me Optimus Futures is as good as it gets.

Superb Futures Brokerage
I have been looking for a brokerage that is friendly to new Traders like myself with a boat load of questions about the Trading Business. So far I have thrown every question i can think at them and I get a reply not only quick but also very knowledgeable. These guy know there stuff and have held my hand through the whole process of opening an account with them. They have checked on me and my progress learning the Trading Platform (Sierra Charts) without me asking for their help. Which tells me they care about their Clients. Not your typical broker who wants you to place a lot of trades so they can get wealthy on commissions. I definitely recommend this Brokerage to anyone who cares about quality customer service and execution.

Perfect balance of expertise and attention to the customer
I am a new but discriminating trader, and I have shopped around.

Matt Zimberg and his crew exude a professional expertise with integrity worthy of trust. He and his staff show they care with attention to detail at every level. I cannot imagine moving my account anywhere else. This is the best it gets. Thanks Matt!

Great Service
Just finished emailing Matt at Optimus. Here it was, after 6 PM, on a Friday night, and Matt is still at work and willing to help a customer.

I have gotten help many times from Matt, oftentimes after the normal 'quitting' hours. He is dedicated to his clients and his work. He is not the 'normal' broker. He actually cares about his customers.

I highly recommend Matt Zimberg and Optimus Futures to anyone looking for a new broker or a change in brokers.

Thanks, Matt!

The guys know their stuff. Period.
Traded for years in Interactive brokers, Trade Station, Think or Swim, and many other brokers who are considered the “big boys”

Quite honestly, I regret not starting to trade futures with Optimus Futures because they are so advanced on their knowledge of platforms and feeds, where I could save tens of thousands in errors, and paying for useless platforms with dysfunctional technologies.

It is quite refreshing to get an answer with a polite customer service, where you don’t feel like a burden on a guy who wants to catch his subway home.

If you are like me, the biggest skeptic on the street, give these guys a try.

Knowledgeable, and very helpful service
Matt Zimberg and the Team at Optimus Futures exhibit that rare combination of a thorough knowledge of their products and the Futures industry as a whole, coupled with a genuine desire to assist their Clients navigate the, often, confusing world of Brokers, Clearing Houses, Data Feeds and Platforms. Two thumbs up!!

Very good executions and even better customer service!
Very good broker in my opinion. I have experience with 3 similar other brokers since 2010 but this one is so far the best one. What I like the most is that their customer service is super fast and always have a solution for me that suits me.

Of course software and executions are very good as well!

Overall I can't think of some other (futures) broker that is better value for me (trading futures, mainly CL/NG).

I use NinjaTrader & RTrader. So far after almost one year with them no problems.

5-Star Service Oriented Broker
I have been trading spot forex and gold for a couple of years. Make the move to futures since this year because I want to see if better volume data would help for my trading (previously using Dukascopy data, which is decent but would like centralized data from exchanges to be more accurate).



Optimus is not my first futures broker, so I have the necessary experience to compare service and technology.





***Commissions***



Their commissions is not listed on their site because they will give you RT based on your initial deposit and trading volume which is fair for both party.



Also please remember they are quoting All-in RT, lots of broker are just quoting their fees without the exchanges (and oftens only stating per side commish which would confuse someone new to futures). And if you are not doing your homework it's actually more expensive than Optimus.







***Service***



The Optimus team gives you the best they can, also being able to contact with the owner himself is rare in this business which means you are dealing with the head himself if you are having problems or wants to negotiate. For technical issues they have their own forum which you can find here:

http://www.optimusfutures.com/forum/forum.php







***Platform***



They use Rithmic as datafeed which you can plug with Ninja, Sierra, Multicharts, and several other popular trading software. data is accurate, unfiltered and delivered in a low latency fashion to the exchange. happy camper here.







***Disclaimer***



other than being their customer i don't have any affiliation with Optimus. Do your own homework and don't take my words as is. I'm merely stating my review here because i'm extremely happy with their service.

Personalised and Experienced Brokerage at Great Prices
Trading Futures is serious business. I needed the best web-based platform choice, but also straight-through phone access to a professional Broker for those moments when you need help right away. That's why I am so happy with Optimus.

As a small account holder I have been given respectful and attentive advice throughout the past 18 months. This has given me the confidence to grow my Trading business with a low-stress state of mind. The Team are all long-term employees from my experience, so they know who I am. The staff are always available. Nice.

Technology-wise, Optimus offer at least half a dozen Broker platforms, and other charting platforms can be linked for further flexibility. Execution is superb. I have had no issues at all with bad fills, bad tick data etc.

In summary, a personal call to Optimus is recommended if you are considering a new Broker, or switching up. You need a Broker on your side.

Happy Trading.

David
