Futures Brokers can be tough! How do you know who to trust? Are
all trading platforms created equal? Can you reach your broker
in an emergency? How much does your broker charge in round turn
fees? Is he a pump and dump expert? Are you palmed off onto a
junior broker if you have questions? Have your trading problems
been quickly and satisfactorily resolved?
You need to know
the answer to all these questions before you make a decision as
to what commodity futures broker you are going to trust with
your hard earned dollars!
The best way to pick a broker,
is get word of mouth recommendations from other traders. You can
do this by visiting
trading forums and social bookmarking sites, like facebook,
twitter, hubpages, digg..etc.
With the growing popularity of
online trading, having a personal relationship with your broker
isn't as common as it once was...but a good broker can provide
you with perks and information such as fundamentals, trading
education and strategies, software, reports and calendars that
will make your trading a lot more efficient and informed.
