low commissions, superb customer service
Stage 5 Trading is offering the best conditions to new and intermediate traders, with professional tools such as the S5 Trade Analyzer and precious trading advice from their experienced staff. The platform is working flawless and is free of charge, data is cheap and the commissions are really competitive. My broker Max Timmins answers my questions really fast and is always there to help.

Best Brokerage out there
Stage 5 is the only brokerage that I plan on being a part of from here on out. They are the first brokerage I've come across that actually cares about your education and will do everything they can to help you succeed. Max and Ian are great guys. I opened an account, but had to withdraw most of it for personal reasons, but they didn't just write me off and stop communicating with me. Max and Ian helped keep me going by renewing my sim account each time it expired, so I could keep practicing until i was ready to come back.

FT71 is also a top notch educator that is not in it for the money, he's never tried to sell us anything and he actually cares about the quality of content that is put out. He is the much needed change in the online trading community, he is our "Batman". I have learned more from his Stage 5 member exclusive webinars than any class I have ever taken. I'm looking forward to being a life long member of Stage 5. Thanks again!

more than a broker
There is something really special happening at S5. I came here after watching FT71's daily trader bites for several months. Since arrival, I've had a continuous series epiphanies about trading. From my experience so far, I can say S5 is genuinely devoted to the success of their trader community. While it does make good business sense for a broker to promote success among clients, it really seems like the S5 mission goes beyond just business.

Max and Ian have been indefatigable when helping me through every technical aspect of set up, and learning the S5 recommended tool set. Their responses to anything that comes up are almost instantaneous, and they really engage the client personally.

What FT is offering has gone way beyond my expectations. The trading ah ha moments have been many, and occasionally mind blowing. But his guidance goes far beyond that. He offers insight through example in to ways becoming a better trader and a better person can be mutually complimentary.

The throughput of FT and S5 of trader support is mind boggling in it's volume, consistency and quality, from daily engagement with traders in chat, to the trader bites and webinars offered freely to the world, and other materials exclusive to the S5 community, I think what is being offered here is a gold mine, for anyone with the interest and discipline to dig in.

Exceptional broker that I trust
I’ve been with Stage5 just over a month and I feel confident that I have found the brokerage I was looking for. After coming across FuturesTrader71's interview on Chat with Traders and being bowled over by his honesty and his approach, I went looking for the brokerage he co-founded - Stage5. I haven't been disappointed.

I was with a large, well known firm but Stage5 is different. I already feel as if I am part of Stage5, rather than just using it to trade. The focus on trader education and the weekly webinars by FT71 make this brokerage very different. Everything about Stage5 is real - the education, the way they respond to you as an individual with particular needs and a particular level of development as a trader rather than as just another client.

My first contact at Stage5 was Max Timmins. Max always answers my questions with warmth and professionalism. The speed and personal care in answering questions is another thing that sets Stage5 apart, not only from other brokers but also from most other companies. I get a personal response - in minutes most of the time - not an automated ‘your request is being dealt with’ and an answer a few days later that just directs you to the online help! I have also dealt with Ian, and like Max, he has been accommodating and genuinely helpful, sorting out any issues straight away. Both Max and Ian really listen to what you have to say and don’t respond with stock answers. So many other brokerages don’t feel genuine It was a relief to find Stage5.

Basically, I trust Stage5 and I’m very happy that I’ve found them. I almost never write reviews online or contribute to chatrooms, social media etc.. but the people at Stage5 give so much I felt that I wanted to give something back. I’ll update this review after I’ve been with them longer.

Can't beat them
Show me a brokerage that beats their customer service and I'll be floored. Anthony and the crew answer all questions in a VERY fast manner and the level of education offered by Morad (FT71) make this brokerage unbeatable.

If you want to succeed in futures trading they give you the best possible chance. Any broker that tells you to open an account and trade on razor thin margins is criminal. I can assure you that Stage 5 is in this game to help their clients "make it." For that, I am very pleased I went with them and I look forward to a long future with Anthony, Morad, Kelsey, Tim, etc. Thanks again!

The BEST broker....Period.
I have been trading for about 5 years and in that time i have dealt with at least a dozen brokers worldwide and 3 brokers for futures based in the USA. I cannot compare any of the others with Stage 5 since they are in a class all their own.

Customer service is by far the best i have ever experienced with any business i have ever dealt with. They are fast and friendly and take care of business.

From the trading side they have the best chat room and instruction in the business and are there to help you in any way possible. There is no free ride though in trading and there is alot of work required to become the best trader you can be but if you are willing to put in the effort then S5 will be there to help and guide in in every way possible,

Best in class
I rarely write public reviews of any type--but my experience over past few years with Stage 5 has been nothing short of eye opening.

This firm has the best support services [as in minutes to answer a question--really answer it--not just send an automated "we are working on it" note]---resolve a problem---or just lend a hand--not hours or days--or as in some other broker experiences]--deep educational support through FT71---which is also EFFECTIVE educational support---from someone who not only trades actively but who is smart--and can communicate effectively.

The administration of the business is great--which is not always the case in this industry--[or in many other US businesses these days for that matter]---the customer support is fantastic--the educational resources---and access directly to a solid professional trader if you are struggling or need direction--is in fact---unparalleled.

All in all this combination is pretty amazing--and they are cost competitive and have a great platform on top of all that.

This is the way this business should be---treated like a Neiman Marcus customer regardless of your account size or trader pedigree.

I am positive they cannot guarantee you will make money trading--but I am equally positive that you will never look to your broker as the cause of an unresolved problem in your trading life if you are using Stage 5. I can also personally attest that Stage 5 will do everything in their power to maximize your chances of being consistent and winning at this very difficult activity called "trading".

You would be short changing yourself in making any decision regarding a new or alternative broker selection not to consider Stage 5.

If you would like to discuss my broker experiences in the past--and how they stack up to Stage 5---don't hesitate to drop me a note through this site--or contact me through Anthony at Stage 5--he can pass a note along to me.

I am happy to help anyone who needs a hand with honest advice/feedback---as I have "been there done that" myself--over and over again in some cases!!



Best of luck trading

A Very Positive Review and One Well Earned
I have a long history with investing and trading which is not an understatement by any means. I knew Anthony Giacomin prior to his move to Stage5 which was hardly coincidental; we had a discussion following financial events of 2011 where I learned more about the clearing business and the need to know how not to get eaten alive unnecessarily. There were casualties following the events of that year as most of us know. I followed Anthony to Open E-Cry where I was introduced to FT71. I already had an interest and experience in Market Profile in its expanding iterations and found someone who I felt could speak knowledgeably about trading and becoming profitable.

Trading is something that you need to walk into with your eyes open. I am not a pessimist or I wouldn't have continued trading; I already had a job (retired as of this year), a pension, tax exempt savings etc. and they aren't funding my trading endeavor. FT71 will be the first to explain to a potential client or current client that trading success doesn't fall into your lap and hopefully, anyone who reads this already understands this fact. At the same time futures and its related instruments play a major role in the world economy and are usually misunderstood by a casual observer.

I mention this because unlike most broker and brokerage owners (I know a couple at least), FT71 (it's his handle now not a mystery) and Anthony Giacomin, now Managing Partner, have a vested interest in providing traders, new and slightly “weathered” alike, the tools, information, training and follow-up so that their customers might succeed. That is their bottom line. Will FT71 say, “You need to step back a bit from the market and be careful?” Yes, but he will show you why and explain how to move forward. That alone makes them unique and a tremendous brokerage. Stage5 provides more value added services than you will find anywhere in the brokerage business to the best of my knowledge.

I wrote this endorsement after some time for various reasons but this week Anthony Giacomin and Max Timms, a Broker with Stage5, spent several hours assisting me with an annoying and agonizing computer problem. Anthony had already spent a good part of one afternoon and then Max followed up the afternoon of the next day. A third party vendor needed to be contacted.

Max connected to my PC remotely and a short time later we were joined the 3rd party vendor via text and another remote connection. As Max and I watched and waited I asked Max if he needed to leave but he said no and he proved knowledgeable about the software and also a diplomat with the third-party representative. Frustration on the customer’s part can impede progress and I noted that Max was providing support to me in more than one way and so it is duly noted.

Previously Max assisted in setting up a special account for me. That too involved a third party and paperwork, new passwords, account settings, etc. I had known that Max was diligent and thorough. He also mentioned a couple changes at Stage5 and provided information and followed up.



I've tried to give you my perspective on Stage5, its benefits and my interaction with Anthony, FT71, and Max. Every other telephone call, question, request for assistance from other representatives of Stage5 reflects the comments I have just made.

There are new services, software (an updated S5 Trade Analyzer), training and more that are being built and tested at this time. It emphasizes what I believe is their unique niche in a quickly changing investing landscape.

Please note, I am not a major cog in OEC or Stage5's financial engine or a friend or family member of Stage5 Trading or employees. I took time to write because I feel that I have received something of value and it has been earned by those who I have mentioned. I think that knowing and trusting your broker is important. I also do not mean to disparage the brokerage and especially Anthony's former colleagues in the process.

Awesome!
I was blown away by their service.

Max and EJ are truly amazing guys. Always replying to all my emails in a timely manner or even by calling me directly to know if I was able to solve the problem I was having and if I needed any help regarding whatever I might be having problems with.

I was a client of another broker for... 6 years, and not once they ever called me regarding problems I might be having. And the email I would sent to them usually would be answered 1 or 2 days after I sent them.

Stage 5 was born to offer a brand new service to their clients and let me tell you that they are accomplishing it.

That you guys for your business.

Amazing - 5 stars company and experience!!!
Stage 5 Trading has exceeded even my highest expectations. I have not worked with ANY other company (any company, not just financial or trading related) that was so interested in making you feel like you belong as part of the their team and that includes providing great customer service, community and tools.

I was trying to opening accounts with other companies and trying to figure out some of the complexities with getting a data feed hooked into a market/volume profile software package and Stage 5 executed with full force. While I spent weeks trying to get this set up with other brokers, it took the Stage 5 team less than 48 hours to have a live account created and funded and hooked into all their great services. It probably would have been even less if I was quicker.

I had many questions on how it could be done and Anthony had responses for me in minutes. Once my account was setup, he was firing how-to documents loaded with tons of easy to follow documentation for setup and funding. After my account was set up and funded, I was sent tons of information about the community including the morning calls, chat room, webinars, twitter alerts and everything that is part of the S5 trading community.

I have never seen this level of customer service anywhere. I can't wait to join the community and learn more about trading from the S5 team.

Thanks so much Anthony, Max and team for getting me started and welcoming me to the community.

RUN, don't walk, to sign up and join the team. Every minute you aren't there is another minute you are missing out on all S5 Trading has to offer.
