I researched US brokers earlier this year, I think you have already found the cheapest in Deep Discount Trading for the size you quote. Your a/c will actually be with Crossland LLC. For account opening you won't find anyone better than Howard at DDT, although had a few issues with Crossland themselves, like debiting a credit!!
I have sinced moved to Dorman, mentioned earlier in the thread, they do CTS T4, decent CS and intraday margin rates, contact John Texidor there for an individual quote, probably 20 c more per r/t which was worth it to me for consistent margin rates across a range of products. Also mentioned earlier was Advantage, I hear good things but you'll only get half of exchange margin for day trading unless things have changed, which may affect your strategy, and a strict min $10k to open an account here.

Good luck.

I'm getting an impression that Low Commissions and Low Margin requirement requires more RT and >$10k account size.

Dorman - Rates i found are $.30c/RT more than DDT and Margin 15-20% intra-day. Its the Intraday Margin.

AMP - Cheap rates but if found this on NFA- http://www.nfa.futures.org/basicnet/Case.aspx?entityid=0216620&case=2005-INV-18B&contrib=CBOT

DDT - What was the issue with DDT and Crossland. Ive found lots of good reviews about DDT on some old forum.

Velocity Futures - On NFA. $1.25M Fine.

Mirus Futures - Looks ok. Not much on NFA.

If i keep searching on NFA site soon their will be no broker left who offers Low commissions, Low Margins ,Good Customer Service with No actions against them :)


Good Luck Trading!

Ha yes exactly, which is why I've ended up with Dorman paying a bit more, think I negotiated it down a bit, paying .20 more than DDT.

Had some CS issues with Crossland, such as debiting instead of crediting a wire transfer, and a random withdrawal of intraday margin on GC. Also some issues with missing statements.
Dorman, touch wood, have been perfect so far!
