Multicharts W/CQG data review/Optimus Futures
My experience with Optimus Futures and keeping it factual:

1) They assured me that they will help me to get set up in a timely fashion. I have received my account in 24 hours and was funded 48 hours after.

2) Passwords provided did not work with the platforms first and that was fixed in 5 minutes while I was on the phone.

3) Software (CQG/Multicharts) free with Optimus brokerage.

4) Emini Execution is as fast as you can get for retail internet connectivity. I had faster execution but that was done with prime broker platform and CME hosting which I may enable again in the future.

5) Speedy SUPERB technical set up from each member of the Optimus employees.

I am not a fan of any particular broker, and keep my business to firms where cost is reasonable and support is available when needed. So far, highly pleased with the service so I have no problem giving credit where due. I hope this level of service from Optimus continues.

Highly recommended.
My experience with Optimus has been excellent. For something as important as trading, especially in critical time-is-of-the-essence moments you want to deal with people who will treat you as they would want to be treated. Even if your need involves a relatively mundane detail don't be surprised if the Matt Zimberg the founder and president is the one responding. A rarity in this business.

Thank you Matt.

straight forward no surprises
So many traders complain about data problems and order fill problems. I have been with Optimus over 2 years now and have had none of these problems. I actually call very little because things work smoothly, as it should. I highly recommend Matt and Optimus.

Best Sierrachart broker for fast trading connection
I trade on sierra for 5 years, and build my entire system with it. This is the best platform for users but I always run to execution issues because of location in Europe. I contact optimus to do demo, and they say that they can get good execution to Europe server. I think that this is wrong because all broker always have server in one location, but they insisted that it is possible. It is true, they have many pointing server and I even tell my friends in chat room who are in Asia to try. we all very impressed.

If you use sierra, and from Europe I ask you to contact optimus and try to trade cme with them because now I trade faster with more stability. Many thank you to team at optimus and guy that never get my name right LOL

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.
