One of a kind !!!
Stage 5 is unique in the business of retail broking, they offer excellent tools, great customer service combined with low commissions. Hard to find such companies who put customer first.

It was my pleasure to work with Max Timmins, he was quick to address queries/issues and provides detailed responses. They have that personal touch, not seen often elsewhere.

If you are looking for a broker that is professional, has a great community and customer service, I would recommend Stage 5 any day.

Phenomenal Brokerage!
I’ve been a client of Stage 5 now for five months. Over the past decade, I’ve had accounts with numerous brokerages. I can say definitively that Stage 5 is an entirely different customer experience. The most glaring quality that differentiates Stage 5 from other brokerages is its basic business model.

All brokerages, including Stage 5, exist to make a profit from their clients’ trading activities. The distinction here, however, is the vision the founders of Stage 5 have with regard to how that profit can be made, and, more importantly, sustained.

The fact is that most brokerages don’t care about their clients. If you join XYZ brokerage, you may be able to take advantage of their educational opportunities and other resources, but they don’t truly have a vested interest in your success. Nurturing you and developing you as a trader is not high on their list of concerns. If you blow up your account, someone else will come along with a fresh account to make up for it. That’s how most brokerages are structured.

Stage 5, in contrast, is interested in sustainability, and sustainability is about long-term client relationships. The most appropriate term to define their business model is “symbiosis.” This is defined as “a mutually-beneficial relationship between different people or groups.” The rationale here is that Stage 5 feels they have far less to gain by short-term client relationships that end with a trader getting frustrated and giving up or blowing up his account. They want you in the game for the long haul, and they want to share in your sustained success.

Stage 5 isn’t just a brokerage. It’s a community and a culture. They’re heavily invested in trader development and allocate enormous time and energy to bringing traders along from the most basic level of development, educating them about how the market works, monitoring their risk parameters and making sure they don’t jeopardize their own success by acting foolishly and taking on excessive risk.

I’ve found that Stage 5 treats all of their clients like valued partners—even those with small accounts. The brokers are extremely responsive to questions or issues. The level of education and discourse in the chat room is at the highest level. I’ve learned more about trading in the few months I’ve spent in the chat room than I learned in the previous decade.

I cannot recommend this brokerage strongly enough!

The BEST Brokerage
Simply the best brokerage on earth backed by a professional trader FT71.

I can write volumes about S5, its core values, operational principles, customer service, commissions etc but several of the reviewers have already mentioned about those and they are all true.

As a retail trader, just think about how beneficial it is to listen to a professional trader passing commentary on the market structure intra day and on what the market has done so far, what is it trying to do and where is it likely to go next. More over you are being watched for risk control. You will be on their radar and you will be warned if you are taking high risk or holding on to a big looser etc which are all the symptoms that you are gonna blow up the account. Atleast for me, I have blown up few accounts in the past when I was with different brokerages and a day later those brokerages have encouraged me to add more funds to the account and trade more. Past January I had a series of 3 or 4 bad trading days and FT71 called me up to review my trades. It was a lengthy call where in there were several AHAA moments that really opened up my mind and reconfigure my trading ideas. He advised me to go sim and prove my expectancy for a couple of weeks and then he re-evaluated the sim trades and allowed me to get back live with a few "cautions" and risk control parameters.

You will never be talking to machines or hit a automated message when you have to reach your broker. Max and Anthony have been great in service. They respond promptly often times in the next hr or so on trading days.

S5 has a trading chat room and there are several experienced traders that were always willing to help.

Their commissions are also great. In-spite of all their free services, my commissions are less than what I paid to InteractiveBrokers for years.

S5 is simply the best brokerage.

Awesome Company!
Great company with very strong core values.

I know FT has never exactly said this like Zig did but the phrase 'You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want,' really defines them.

I have been a client for two years now and have enjoyed every minute of it.

This is the place to be to learn about the market, futures trading, and most importantly yourself.

Check them out!!

Best Broker Ever
I can’t imagine learning to trade without being a part of stage 5 trading. They are more that a broker, it’s like being a part of a team. I pick up at least 1 good nugget of information from every webinar, lead weekly by FT71. The trade analyzer, chat room and many other perks are exclusive to stage 5 members.

Trader Incubator
This is a great broker for developing traders. The brokers are responsive and solve problems for you fast! Add to this FT71 and you have real value here. The S5chat is almost like a getting group mentoring from FT71. These are good people in an industry full of shysters. Highly recommended!

Terrific service, competitive rates, unaparalleled education
Have had an account there for almost six months. Access to FT71 and the blogs/weekly webinars is a gold mine. You have to do a great deal to make the material your own and it is no quick fix, but this is the real deal at competitive rates.

Legit
Stage 5 has been a great broker for me. The education received from FT is priceless and you get a very attentive broker as well - what more could you ask for?

When I first got setup, Ian and Max provided clear communication and fast with responses. Ian walked me through a few charting questions and data issue that I had messed up when I setup IRT. The S5 platform has been very reliable & DOM is great to trade from.

Between FT71's webinars, flexlevels in IRT and notes in Bookmap - you get to see how hypos for the auction are created and after time develop your own to compare to the traderbites and flexlevels.

I have recommended this brokerage to several people - not just for the education, the service provided is top notch.

Best i have ever seen
Futures trading and FCM's in general, have faced some interesting times in the last 10 years, with many lacking customer facing staff, slow back office and so forth, owing to the fact that this is an era where lower and lower commissions have made it a challenging environment.

Then there is the fact that virtually none of these firms own their own trading platform, so as a trader you end up renting one for hundreds of dollars a month. BUT, then along comes Stage 5 Trading, as an Introducing Broker, working in conjunction with Gain Capital. as the FCM and they become a game changer. They have an exceptional platform (S5) which is free to use, their commissions are good, and their service is the best I personally have ever seen !

You can go right down the checklist and Stage 5 is exceptional:

Educational Resources? YES

Timely position reporting and statements? YES

Robust Trading platforms ? YES

Presence on Twitter? YES

Answers email timely? YES

Available by phone? YES

Understands what Active Traders need and what they DON'T need? YES

Stage 5 is the real deal.

I worked with Max Timmins over at Stage 5 in setting up my account and on various items over the last year and his work has been exceptional. He, and the entire firm are committed to delivering excellence to their traders.

There are several dozen FCM's for retail traders, and several dozen Introducing Brokers, but Stage 5 is the best in the game, period, end of story, it's not even a debate.

I give them my highest recommendation.

They're more than just brokers
I'm not a reviewer but I need to give credit where credit is due.

It has been 5 months since I've joined Stage 5. I'm really new to futures and still crawling and on sim.

However, being on sim doesn't lower the quality of service provided from Stage 5. I've got everything from education, tools, and also advice. Instead of pushing me to trades in the short-term, they're doing 100% to help me make this a long-lasting business.

Thank you Morad, Anthony, Ian, Max, Kelsey.
