Log in or Sign up. Hello all, I am looking for a good Canadian futures broker. Low commissions, platform support, etc. The problem with Canada, it seems, is that we're limited in our choice of brokers for regulatory reasons or something, so I'm having a bit of a hard time finding something good.
I have an account with Global Futures. Used to have an account with Tradestation but they closed all their Canadian accounts for regulatory reasons. Too bad, i really liked their platform.
I'll check e'm out. And yeah, stupid regulations are limiting choices. I'm sure there's a good deal out there. The problem with Canada is that there are 13 different securities regulators for our little country of 32 million.
I think most futures brokers allow Canadian accounts. Commish is cheap and the data is good for my needs. I've heard of issues with customer service but personally have never had a problem. I am pretty low maintenance though. Just check out the different websites or call to confirm they accept non-US accounts.
IB Canada is not very good for futures trading. Commissions are high and the data is a steaming pile of garbage. You can get half the commissions that IB charges if you are willing to pay for some decent software. You must log in or sign up to reply here.
