Just thought I'd give a quick review of a broker I've been using for the last month.
Generic Trade (http://www.generictrade.com/) are an 'introducing broker' for Ironbeam (http://ironbeam.com/). As you will see they are a good option for those of us not trading big volume that just want decent commission, minimum costs and no frills.
59cents for everything per contract per side. For AUD exchange/clearing fees 1.62, so all inclusive costs per side is $2.21 or $4.42 per round trip, everyone gets this, no min volume requirements
Fire tip. No frills, if you like your bells and whistles you probably wont like it. If you just want something that is easy to use and functions well you will probably love it like me. It says platform costs $59 per month on website, but as of yet I have not been charged and been with them just over a month. No other data fees, standard US/Eurex products.
left click for limit order, right click for stop order. Bracket orders, static dom etc.
Here is a look:
Min Account Balance
Day trading margin
one quarter of full margin (For AUD is about $500 per contract)
Have never needed to call them. I trade Asian session, have emailed them a few times during Asian session and they have always emailed back probably within an hour.
Any other questions let me know.
