A whole new breed of futures broker. Serious traders only.
every broker i have used i have been able to group into more or less the same camp. they provide execution, and tech support when necessary. however s5 is different (and not for everyone). they are on a mission to create a community of traders that shares techniques, informed opinions, peer evaluations, even charting templates all in an air of professionalism. their fees are reasonable, but this is not for the retail trader who is evaluating brokers based on commission. these guys are so much more than that.
FT71's educational materials like his countless webinars, transparency with his own futures trading techniques, and personal evaluations of my trading results have been truly enlightening. they have made my transition to futures trading happen at light speed. i'm talking about volume-based and order flow-based approaches to the markets, statistical analysis, and chart setups. support like i have never seen in this business. it has made me emotional at times realizing how much i have learned from his generosity.
Anthony's and Max's support and care on the brokerage side is some of the best i've seen in any walk of life. they give new meaning to the terms broker and customer service. instant email response no matter the concern...a real drive to help people. the chat room is very telling of the quality of their customer base: the high-level vocabulary & the professional attitude of most clients are a big plus for the isolated trader.
IMO this is an outfit only for serious futures traders who want to put in (or already do) the work to be called a professional trader. if you intend to actively learn from the homework, pop quizzes, chatroom, webinars, etc. that are provided for you (at no charge), if you are serious in this way, then this may be the brokerage for you.
