Simply the best there is
As a professional money manager, I have been in the industry for more than 25 years and have dealt with or researched extensively just about every brokerage you could imagine. While I found every one lacking in one area or another (client relationships, product trading platforms, technical assistance, product offerings, commissions, back office, concern for the customer, etc.), I have never worked with a brokerage that excelled in the number of areas that Stage 5 does. As a futures brokerage, it would be nearly impossible to find an organization that is as professional and remarkable as Stage 5. About five years ago, while needing to expand my firm's capabilities into futures, I happened across FT71 on a social media stream. It was immediately obvious to me that he was the real deal--professional, concerned, talented, honest and keenly aware of what it takes to succeed. Since then, I have been fortunate to deal with FT71 personally, and my respect for him has only increased. I have found him tireless in working with me and others to explain or clarify an issue, and do whatever he could to help, oftentimes in the after-hours or evenings. In addition, I have been extremely impressed with both Anthony and Max, and cannot recall more prompt and efficient detail to resolving the issues I needed addressed. If you intend to make the commitment to trading and are willing to do what it takes, in my opinion it is simply not possible to do better than Stage 5. Stage 5 has a vision to become what other brokers either don't care to or can't, and I have no doubts that they will do their utmost to help serious traders succeed.

Exceptional customer service
In the trading industry there are numerous brokers, most of which are commission driven and have no other interest in their clients. When was the last time you can say that you felt like your broker was on your side or sincerely wanted to help you? For the most part it has been my experience that after you fill out your application and wire your money, you're on your own. If I had a question or needed tech support, my expectation with other brokers has been underwhelming at best. Anthony at Stage5 exceeded my expectation of what a brokers role is.

During my initial account setup I had several questions regarding platform availability, fund security, product demos, and execution. Anthony has always been quick to respond and resolve any issues or questions that I had. If I sent an email his response time was like i was sending a PM. If I called during business hours it was Anthony who picked up the phone! During the application process there was no pressure, stage5 is confident enough in their products that they present the options to you. If you need advise they can assist you but there was never a hard sell.

During my platform setup I encountered several problems but Anthony patiently took the time to address each of them. He remotely configured the platform, and even setup my charts which in itself would have taken a couple of hours.

I have yet to execute any trades on the platform as I am testing the functionality in the demo mode, however I was so pleasantly surprised with the service that I had to write up a review.

The level of service I received, gives me the confidence to do business with these guys. Can you say that about your current broker?

Superb
I can honestly say this company is outstanding. The support you receive is better than any company I have ever come across in any industry. Nothing is too much trouble for Max, and he will answer any queries you may have along the way promptly and efficiently.

Max and the team will be a huge success as they genuinely care and want everyone to be happy and successful.

Keep up the good works chaps

A broker building long term relationships
Anthony has always been very responsive and a delight to deal with by phone or email.

Max was also a great help getting me up to speed on the Stage 5 software.

My executions have always been fast and w/o undue slippage (even on stops).

Also get you access to their private client room which should cost you a couple hundred dollars a month in all honestly. Not only is there great mentor ship there with FT71, but the other traders are always helpful to both new and old to the room when questions are asked.

The room has successfully created a community of collaboration without name calling, yelling, boasting or berating. Thus, a first rate place to help you along your journey in developing your trading skills.

Have had 3 other brokers, none of whom I was displeased with, Stage 5 is just head and shoulders above.

Hope this review helps.

Sincerely,

Jeff Gerber (@circlemstr)

Setting the Standard
These guys are first class and show how things should be in the industry.

My contact there, Anthony Giacomin, has been right there all the way.I have an issue and i get instant replies,not waiting weeks like some brokers.

They have great tools,the analyzer and various front-ends to meet the needs of all traders.

Regarding costs/comms, they will work with you for a good rate.

If you are new and need help,they have an amazing network there for education and genuinely care about trader growth,not just there to collect the R/T's.

Wouldn't be anywhere else for futures daytrading. Period.

Great service
I have been with stage 5 trading now for a few months and had several issues with my Market Delta platform, which Max Timmins has sorted out brilliantly. As a broker, Max gets back to me immediately and sorts out the problem in a quick and friendly manner.

I can highly recommend Stage 5 trading over other brokers I have used in the past.

Professional Broker that invests in their clients
I don't like giving reviews....especially perfect reviews but this review is warranted.

I've traded futures with several brokers in the past. The relationship with the other brokers has always been about what the clients can do for the broker and not what the broker can do for the client. Here is where Stage 5 is different. They genuinely care about the progress their clients are making. They work hard and spend countless hours educating their traders.

If you bring a positive attitude, willingness to work hard, and take responsibility for your successes and failures then Stage 5 is a great fit for you.

Stage 5 Trading has helped me grow as a trader.

Great tools, analyzer is amazing. SIM is good too.

Thanks Max for everything until now. Hope to grow as you guys grows too.

See ya

Amazing ongoing support, great services, awesome community.
This is the brokerage you want to be part of. It's not only about the great tools they give you, but also about the community as a whole, where everyone is really supportive, about the brokers who always answer your questions (I feel it always takes them less than 5 minutes!). Look no more.
