$10,000 initial deposit.

Can't quite remember, but I believe the first quote I had from their Canadian office was USD1,700 intraday. But remember that I am female, so I get fobbed off as being a bimbo housewife playing with stocks for amusement, so it takes me more effort to get a sensible quote. If you're male, you'd get a completely different quote no doubt.

If you are seeking a good service, reasonable commissions and low margin, then the Global Futures http://www.globalfutures.com/ is the best introducing broker for you.

They were also recommended to me. But, I am always a little suspicious about brokers who do not quote their commission schedules on their website.
What are their commissions per leg in softs and grains?
thanks

I don't know it, but they have a live chat on their website, and you can ask online...

If a broker wont disclose commissions on a web site - its because he would rather negotiate them depending on your monthly volume. If you charge $4 per rt to all customers, you will only attract smaller traders. If you base commission based on size, then larger traders who are more regular and last longer tend to come your way.

I have a broker 'niggle' too. I always prefer my broker to be a clearing member. Dont know why, but I think they will be able to execute orders faster - dumb I know.

Have a look at eminilocal (http://www.eminilocal.com/commissions.htm). $500 margin and $5/rt (J-Trader). Clears through RCG.
