Exceptional tools, platform, and customer service
Exceptional tools, platform, and customer service. The are like the "Nordstrom's" of futures brokers, no joke. Max Timmins and the entire team have walked this relative newbie to futures through the platform and opening an account. Trust me, though I'm a newb to futures, I'm not a newb to investing/daytrading in general (I trade stocks and forex). So, I'm no sucker - I did my research on brokers and platforms (many hours/days/weeks). Anyhow, the emini's called to me and I just had to do a lot of research (due dilligence) to make sure I went with a good broker. After test driving plenty of other products platforms/broker (Tradestation has no demo, but TOS, TransActAT, other OEC flavors) I really am impressed with S5 Trader. Not to mention the help Max and his team have offered - like I said the Nordstrom's of brokers. I'm very critical of who I chose to go with, as all of you should be as well (in fact still get call backs from many other brokers).

It would be foolish of you if you don't at least take Stage 5 services and platform (demo account) for a test drive.

Highly recommend them and again grateful to Max and the S5 team. The choice was immediately clear once I demoed them (esp. vs the 4-5 other choices I tried first).

Great Service
Hi Max



Please forward this email to your boss

I have been trading futures since the days of the Quote Tron device that sat on your desk with the antenna and the Linn Waldock era back in the nineties

I would like to let you know Max Timmins is without a doubt the best account rep that I ever had. I bring this to your attention because I know you are a busy person and sometimes employees go unnoticed

Thanks again

Didn't think a broker like this existed...
After nearly throwing in the towel on the futures trading endeavor after many years of frustration, I found exactly what is needed in this industry - a broker that provides solid guidance and support in a trader's journey to a "better place." Absolutely no hype, upselling, etc. Clients are challenged to develop their own style versus blindly following someone else's strategy. Trading psychology and risk factors - which I've found (the hard way) to be equally if not more important than the pure technical aspects of trading - are constantly kept in the forefront. I feel that they clearly have each client's best interests in mind. Staff have been exceptionally supportive and responsive, and the chatroom is the best I've seen (kudos to all who participate). While there is no certainty as to where my own journey will lead, I am absolutely certain that this path - with Stage 5 as a partner - is far better than any other I could be on right now.

A Broker who cares
I opened an account with Stage 5 only recently and so far couldn't have been happier.

Their customer service is exceptional, especially Anthony who will go above and beyond to help you and make sure everything is set up the way you want. I have emailed Anthony many times with multiple questions before I opened an account and every single time he was prompt and professional and answered all my questions.

I definitely recommend them especially to anyone who is new to this business and doesn't know a lot about different platforms and options.

Best Customer Service Bar None
They are always helpful and willing to take time to talk with you about any questions or concerns you might have. The platform ( free ) S5 trader is good platform for order entry, The quotes are fast and I haven't had any real problems to speak of.

I will tell you that the commission is cheap and other brokers ( TOS, Tradestation ) are no where the quality as Stage 5 IMO. I trade calender commodity spreads and would highly recommend Stage 5 over these other guys.

Tried the others...
I transferred my account from the largest futures broker in the country to Stage 5 Trading and have never regretted it. The education that is available through weekly webinars and the ability to ask a question to trader that makes a living in the markets is invaluable. At my previous broker, the trade desk seemed to be hassled with any type of trade emergency that arises when you are trading away from the exchange. Max at Stage 5 is the most helpful broker I have ever spoke to. No matter what the issue I have, he responds quickly in a cheerful matter. He gets the results needed in a timely matter. What else could you ask from your broker?

Stage 5 is a first class brokerage, it is as simple as that.

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.

Best brokerage experience in 30 years...
Stage 5 is hands down the best Futures Broker on the street. High customer service, knowledgeable staff, expert advice, and a community of like-minded traders who are willing to help and share. Having spent 16 years in the industry as a broker and trader and then the last 14 years as a customer. I have found no one who tries harder to make problems disappear, and find a positive solution to any situation. Add on top of all that, the mentoring that Morad (FT71) gives to the entire Stage 5 community through daily morning update on the market, online chat during the market hours, weekly quiz and Q&A, and special webinars with himself and special guests, you have the icing on the cake. Best of the best. Congratulations.

Extraordinary Experience From Experts Who Care....
The experience has been nothing short of extraordinary - Anthony strikes me as a leader in handling customers.

 

Max upholds the standard and impressed me with honesty and patience which was more then sufficient to overcome my initial questions and setup with AMP.
