Best broker with 5 Star customer service!!!
I've been working with Ian and Kevin from Stage 5 for several months now and they have been outstanding. They are always super quick to respond to emails and answer every question and walk you through anything you don't understand. I recently have been learning the futures market and I'm taking it slow so I've just been paper trading for about 6 months now. Ian has always been super patient with me and never rushed me into funding an account. He kept letting me renew my demo even though I wasn't technically a paying customer.

Well now I have a funded account with them and I wouldn't imagine working with another broker. I'm not going to lie I reached out to a bunch of other brokers and tried them out too (not going to say names), but nobody made me feel comfortable like Stage 5 did. Oh yea and they have a ton of helpful tools and webinars and training videos that come with their software that are really helpful. You also get full access to all the dozens of different Amp trading platforms as a Stage 5 customer which is AWESOME and was a complete surprise. I look forward to continuing to work Stage 5 and developing into the best trader I can be.

Excellent Support for a Broker and great communityl
The people at Stage 5 have something really special. They have built a community of traders with a chat room and lots of discussion that will improve your trading if you are willing to work at it. On top of that, they provide a Trade Analyzer that should be used to watch and improve your trading metrics. The free data and platform is icing on the cake. This broker is one that really helps it traders and if you are looking to become profitable in futures, you should give it a shot.

Polite-Proffesional-Trustworthy
If you’re looking for a sound, competent and honest broker to help you through the account process, build a platform and feed to meet your needs, timely answers to your questions, professional guidance and that isn’t pushy, rude, arrogant and unprofessional; then you’ve found the right place.

Coming from the equity and ETF environment I was very interested in the futures market, but there just wasn’t any resources to go to that offered a stable paper trading platform, were honest, and didn’t pressure you into opening an account or placing trades before you even know what you’re doing. This was the key for me. If I didn’t have a platform with a live feed, chart trading, and a trade analyzer, I could never really know if this was something I should commit further time to.

This is what I like about these guys. They are committed to making your experience as painless as possible but more importantly to building a solid foundation to work on before even placing a trade. Max Timmins-Broker and Ian Blanke-associate broker are extremely helpful and have answered all of my questions (which have been a lot). They will do everything they can to get you started

On top of that you have a professional trader (FT71) helping you build a complete foundation of trading psychology, habits to avoid and change, trade journaling and the importance of looking at your statistics, monthly public-private videos and explaining how he structures his trading strategy and enters his trades( not when and where to place trades but how he places trades), daily twitter posts on key news events he finds interesting and current market conditions, trader interventions, morning trader bites showing his overall view of the emini S&P futures and others if in context using volume profiling, and a massive list of you tube videos and webinars sponsored by futures.i.o and other very informative resources going over an endless amount of crucial topics to help you in your trading journey. I mean, what else could you ask for?

I’ve worked for a company for nearly 20 years that has been in business for over a century and is known for their customer service. Stage5 is clearly the winner in this arena. And I’ve dealt with many brokers. If you’re trying to decide where to go, look no further-Give them a try

All I need
One thing that striked me about Stage5 is that they really care about you as a trader. I learned so much from the webinars and from the people in the chat room. The chat room alone is fantastic! People helping each other out and on top of that you get FT71 with his experience and wisdom. I think the whole approach of Stage5 is unique. Chat room, Trade Analyzer 1.4 (I hope 2.0 is coming out fast. Excited!!!), great webinars, trader interventions (FT71 takes a close look at your trading and tries to find out what is working and what is not) - it's all about developing better traders and not about milking customers.

Stage 5 Rocks!
I discovered Stage 5 Trading as part of my search for the best tools and education for trading futures. I had already discovered BookMap but was searching for better tools for and a better understanding of volume profiling. I then discovered FT71 and Stage 5 Trading.

At every step of the way, my questions have been answered promptly and respectfully. I try to be reasonable in my support requests and the S5 staff have always exceeded expectations.

I have held accounts at many brokerages over the years and have the general impression that all brokers just want commissions and don't truly care about their customers. These folks are the exception. After hearing the back-story on how S5 began, it makes sense. This organization was started out of a desire to help traders.

Life Changing
Stage 5 have been an excellent introduction into the trading industry for me. Being someone with no experience approximately one year ago, I came across S5 while doing the usual bounce around on the inter-web looking for that magic slot machine.

While I still have a way to go to meet my trading goals, the recommendations and tools along with phenomenal abundant education/knowledge share provided by FT with his daily trader bites and weekly AMAs/Walk Throughs, and with regular contact from MT (Max Timmins) the broker, always promptly responding to all my queries and questions with such sincerity. I really appreciate all that you guys do and I look forward to a long business partnership.

Signing up with S5 has been a life changing exercise and one that has made me a more appreciative genuine human. I can most definitely recommend.

A breath of fresh air..
Stage5 have been a superb Broker for me I had traded Forex for a long time and like so many others had the Good Bad and the Ugly in terms of my experiences with Brokers no names mentioned.

I had taken a Price Ladder course and was now very keen to trade futures but I could not find a UK based Broker that offered what I wanted.

Having spent a long time researching I came across Stage 5 via a Tweet from somebody I know that is what I would describe as a serious Futures trader.

I made my enquiries and was just mesmorized at how quickly Ian Blanke replied to my many annoying questions I couldn't believe that a broker in Chicago would reply to emails quicker than my London one.

I opened an account after trading on their demo to get used to their DOM and again Ian was always there to answer my questions and then opened a live account.

As far as brokers go these guys are the Cream of the Crop.

I have had nothing but a very positive experience with Stage 5 , Withdrawls and

Truly Incredible It's Unreal.
After trying the classic mainstream brokerages such as Trade station & Interactive Brokers, I can sincerely say that Stage 5 is far superior in every way. For instance, at Trade station and IB, you're happy and shocked at the same time if you're not on hold for more than 15 mins, which we all know could be costly if you have orders all over the place. At Stage 5 your call gets answered on the first or second ring and I have never been put on hold when I have called. Furthermore, on the customer service aspect, the brokerage also has a chat-room where there is various rooms ranging from "traders helping traders" to "tech support". In the tech support room you can get instant feedback and answers on situations or questions you need help with. For example, I needed help with a trading question regarding an order and one of the brokers Ian Blanke responded in an instant and helped me resolve the problem in seconds, even when I logged off by accident, he called me personally on my cell phone to further explain all the details. You honestly never get that kind of customer service anywhere else its amazing.

I have also made huge strides both as a trader and as a person since joining Stage 5. The head trader at Stage 5 Morad Askar, also known as Futurestrader71 does weekly educational webinar trading videos for all the stage 5 clients. The education ranges from "trade wisdom" such as dealing with losses and the psychology aspect of trading, to weekly "Ask me Anything" sessions every Thursday. The Ask me Anythings are absolutely crazy, my mind gets blown every time I watch them. For example, the AMA's are where Stage 5 clients can submit him questions on various topics related to trading, psychology, technical setups, market/volume profile questions, and basically anything. I have progressed so much because of these webinars and they have helped me fine tune my trading. The Ask Me Anythings are priceless and you walk away learning something new every webinar.

However, the ultimate thing that no brokerage can touch Stage 5 in is when on some Thursdays, a trader at the brokerage will pick a random trading day in the past and FuturesTrader71 will trade that day on a sim account for all the S5 clients to see. As he is trading, he explains what he is looking for such as key levels to watch, why he is getting long or short when he executed the trade, and when he is going to take profits and exit. He goes step by step and breaks it down for us. It's honestly like 1 on 1 education watching a pro trade and teaching you at the same time. How can you not develop as a trader with that?

Lastly, the education and support is invaluable and has helped me and other the traders I have talked to at stage 5 make huge strides in their trading career. Stage 5 and all they have done for me has helped me excel not only in trading but also in my career. With the experience and knowledge I have gained with Stage 5, I recently was selected to help run a university endowment fund. In short, I was selected because they thought I was unique in regards to the way I trade and my mindset toward trading and life in general is. This was all the result of Stage 5 and how they have helped me mold as a trader. To conclude, to me personally, It's crazy when a brokerage can help you in other aspects of your life and not just in trading, They are an incredible and dynamic brokerage, I cant praise them enough.

Exceptional Brokerage
It's a rarity in this business to find a brokerage company as good as Stage 5. The overwhelming positive reviews they've received is a testament to just how good they are. Excellent customer service, competitive commissions, sound trading platform, etc., etc. Coupled with the tutelage of FT71, weekly webinars, and great trading chat room, makes this company head and shoulders above the rest.

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.
