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...

Friendly Fast Service
I have had my account at Optimus for a few years now. I can't say enough about how good the people are there and how helpful they are. If you have questions - they answer the phone and will spend as much time as you need talking through ideas or platforms.

The trade execution is excellent and the commissions are as well. I have had many conversations with Matt and I can tell from talking with him that he is really on my side. I don't get that impression with other brokers. He has always been very friendly and full of good ideas.

If you don't have a broker or considering working with a new one, definitely give them a call.

Professional level brokerage
In January of 2014 I began a search for a broker to replace a broker I was using that had data and client communication problems. I talked to 4 brokers that I can remember, and settled on Optimus. My reason for choosing Optimus was Matt's no-nonsense, no- pie in the sky approach to providing the services I needed. There were no promises of ridiculously low margins, nor were there any hidden fees or other gotchas. I have been with 8 different brokers over my trading career (spanning 30 years), and Matt offers a superior level of service.

Setting up the account was for he most part painless, with excellent help from Jessica in the office. I don't require a lot of hand holding, but when an issue does arise, Matt and his staff are very responsive.

I am in the process of moving another account to Optimus. I wouldn't be doing this if I had any reservations about the company.

I also recently changed from one trading software to a different program. Matt and associates were there to answer every question, and to make sure I was proficient on the new program. Changiing from a software you have used for over 5 years to a new platform can be challenging, but was made much easier with Optimus' support.

Why I Stopped shopping for futures brokers.
I have had 4 futures trading accounts at the same time in order to diversify my funds.

After you go through MF Global and PFG, you don't trust anyone, so I diversified with 4 brokers. This was a nightmare in itself due to the learning curve of each platform.

Even if you use some brokers as a backup, you still need to know how to place trades just in case lady market goes wild. Fast forward almost 24 months, and the ONLY brokers that I am speaking with are Optimus.

Whilst dealing with 4 brokers, here is the propaganda:

1) In all brokerages, besides Optimus, my reps have changed. I do not know if the brokers were promoted or kicked out.

2) Most "brokers" are very young and have no clue in trading or software.

3) Most IBs promote the same software that their FCMs give them. All support calls go to the FCM.

4) Commissions are never as promised.

5) figuring out the software is on your own. BYOB Bring your own book!

Optimus operates on a different level of standards. They know my platforms, they understand the technical issues without BSing me, and commissions were as promised.

My set up:

1) Multichart for execution. Excellent piece!

2) IRT+DTN for Market Profile

3) Rithmic Trader for back up.

The entire set up was done by them with remote service.

I know there are many traders just like me out there, who simply seek a straight forward person to deal with without all the nonsense. Go Optimus! because this is my "Bloody Oath" that these blokes are fine, fine, fine.

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.
