High Quality Broker
I've became a client of S5 after I've started following the FT71 market approach and looking to switch from the CFDs to US regulated markets. After few months being on board I would highly recommend S5 to anyone who is looking to open futures/options account or already having one - to change a broker.

The thing that makes the S5 really stand above the rest is that they are all about building a community around the firm and focus on the customers and what their need for trading instead of chasing/pushing commissions. Therefore the customer services is really on the highest level - from opening the account, funding it and through trading you are getting support and comprehensive answers to all questions Special thanks to Max Timmins who really made it a hell of a lot easier for me not being a US citizen.

To sum up - highly recommended.

Great Broker
I've been with stage 5 trading for about 3 months now, and they are a fantastic broker for trading futures (I have not traded futures options).

1. Execution through Gain has been excellent (several times getting fills on top and bottom ticks).

2. Server side bracker and OCO orders are implemented while trading through Sierra Chart.

3. Commissions are low, matching IB.

4. Excellent customer service responsiveness.

A couple of things that I came across:

1. You have to request day trading margins to be dropped to 25% from 50%, while tradestation for example, has margins at 25% automatically, and other brokerages have it even lower.

2. Using Sierra Chart and Gain, you have to request the number of symbols you can chart to be increased, as it's capped at 50.

The standout is really the customer service IMO. My rep, Max, has called me many times to answer questions over the phone when I've emailed him the questions, including technical questions about the platform (unexpected). His responsiveness is unlike any broker I have delt with, which includes tradestation and interactive brokers. The standout of stage 5 trading over TS and IB is their dedication to the retail trader with a small account. Not only are they responsive, but Morad holds weekly AMA sessions for the stage 5 clients, and puts out consistent educational material.

Overall, an excellent customer-focused introducing brokerage firm.

Great Service & Tools
I have been a client of S5 from the time FT & Anthony started their venture - which used to be called Vankar at the time. I will split the review in 2 categories -

1. Service - As a broker, S5 offers incredibly prompt & high quality service. If there is a complex issue, they will work with you to get to the right solution. I have been with other brokers before and can only vouch Anthony is the best that I have worked with.

2. Offerings - Well if you are an ES trader, chances are that you already know who FT is. If not, do yourself a favor and check out his website and ton of webinars - will definitely expedite your growth as a trader irrespective of the trading methodology you use. Besides all the tools, webinars, chat room, trader bites, etc.., what has impressed me the most is FT's integrity and willingness to share.

I would highly recommend S5.

Cheers

Excellent customer service; innovative tools; good rates
Platform: S5 Trader.

My data choice to drive S5 Trader: CME only (you can also get COMEX, NYMEX, CBOT, ICE, and EUREX)

Markets traded: futures (mainly ES).

I use S5 Trader primarily to enter orders in its DOM and to run Jigsaw Tools.

I was migrating from an all-in-one brokerage to a more futures-focused broker, and Stage 5 made the process very simple, and their customer service reps were very helpful at each step (the process was quick too). It helps that each rep I spoke with was a broker. They were very knowledgeable, and they got me setup with the tools that I needed to hit the ground running. They offered a good commission structure and favorable margins. Regarding data, at least with my setup using S5 Trader, I only pay for CME with CME's special non-pro pricing of $5 with depth of market. No other fixed charges.

Stage 5's S5 Trade Analyzer is really a fantastic tool. It lets you export the trades by instrument, helping you really dissect your trades to identify strengths and weaknesses. You can also export to csv, which is a very big plus.

S5 is also home to FT71, and his free daily TraderBites on YouTube are very informative, and great for pre-market prep. As an S5 member, you also get access to new webinars, which are invaluable. There are also various member chatrooms that are active and monitored, making them very good places to learn from other traders.

I did a fair bit of shopping around for a new futures broker, and it was rather difficult to compare them all because so many of the websites in this market sector are short on important details. In the end, S5 had the perfect mix of the right tools, the right prices, the right people, and the right services, so the decision of moving to S5 was actually a very easy decision, and I'm glad I made the move. I'm a very satisfied customer.

An awesome trading community
Stage 5 is the only broker that really cares about traders staying in the game. FT71 (Morad) spends tons of hours giving away free information that really helps traders understand how the market auctions. This is really important stuff to know and understand if you are to become a profitable trader.

I started seeing the light after hearing him for months and watching every video on youtube and stage 5 private ama's and all I can say is great stuff about this brokerage.

Forget about other brokers who are only interested in traders in making commissions and don't care how long you stay in the game. If you want to survive, joining stage 5 is the first step.

Of course there is no silver bullet, you have to work it. There is no magic formula to become successful but I'd say that this is the closest you could get to find an edge in the market.

Thank you FT. Thank you Stage 5.

Great firm, great service!
The service from my broker Max Timmins has been exceptional! He has gone out of his way to get me setup since I joined Stage 5 Trading. All requests have been promptly attended to in a friendly and courteous manner.

The highlight of Stage 5 to me is the educational component. The combination of the daily Trader Bite with FT71 and the regular webinars has really helped me improve as a trader.

I am happy to recommend Stage 5 Trading to anyone looking for a futures brokers.

Awesome
Although I've been doing this for a long time, I think Stage 5 is great for someone advanced like myself as well as the beginner. I do not use all the bells and whistles, but I certainly would have loved to have this when I was starting up. I also like the weekly information, recommendations, and tools to make the right decisions.

Setup was actually pretty easy and there were no pushy people involved. The demo was a good start, but having the live account was really everything I could want and more.

I am so happy with their product.

Best broker!
I've traded with many different brokers over the years (futures, stocks, options), and Stage 5 is the best I've seen. Max Timmins and Brian McGee did an outstanding job of getting me set up. The overall experience has been very good, with outstanding communication. The entire organization is very professional!
