This is a great broker for developing traders. The brokers are responsive and solve problems for you fast! Add to this FT71 and you have real value here. The S5chat is almost like a getting group mentoring from FT71. These are good people in an industry full of shysters. Highly recommended!

Terrific service, competitive rates, unaparalleled education
Have had an account there for almost six months. Access to FT71 and the blogs/weekly webinars is a gold mine. You have to do a great deal to make the material your own and it is no quick fix, but this is the real deal at competitive rates.

Legit
Stage 5 has been a great broker for me. The education received from FT is priceless and you get a very attentive broker as well - what more could you ask for?

When I first got setup, Ian and Max provided clear communication and fast with responses. Ian walked me through a few charting questions and data issue that I had messed up when I setup IRT. The S5 platform has been very reliable & DOM is great to trade from.

Between FT71's webinars, flexlevels in IRT and notes in Bookmap - you get to see how hypos for the auction are created and after time develop your own to compare to the traderbites and flexlevels.

I have recommended this brokerage to several people - not just for the education, the service provided is top notch.

Best i have ever seen
Futures trading and FCM's in general, have faced some interesting times in the last 10 years, with many lacking customer facing staff, slow back office and so forth, owing to the fact that this is an era where lower and lower commissions have made it a challenging environment.

Then there is the fact that virtually none of these firms own their own trading platform, so as a trader you end up renting one for hundreds of dollars a month. BUT, then along comes Stage 5 Trading, as an Introducing Broker, working in conjunction with Gain Capital. as the FCM and they become a game changer. They have an exceptional platform (S5) which is free to use, their commissions are good, and their service is the best I personally have ever seen !

You can go right down the checklist and Stage 5 is exceptional:

Educational Resources? YES

Timely position reporting and statements? YES

Robust Trading platforms ? YES

Presence on Twitter? YES

Answers email timely? YES

Available by phone? YES

Understands what Active Traders need and what they DON'T need? YES

Stage 5 is the real deal.

I worked with Max Timmins over at Stage 5 in setting up my account and on various items over the last year and his work has been exceptional. He, and the entire firm are committed to delivering excellence to their traders.

There are several dozen FCM's for retail traders, and several dozen Introducing Brokers, but Stage 5 is the best in the game, period, end of story, it's not even a debate.

I give them my highest recommendation.

They're more than just brokers
I'm not a reviewer but I need to give credit where credit is due.

It has been 5 months since I've joined Stage 5. I'm really new to futures and still crawling and on sim.

However, being on sim doesn't lower the quality of service provided from Stage 5. I've got everything from education, tools, and also advice. Instead of pushing me to trades in the short-term, they're doing 100% to help me make this a long-lasting business.

Thank you Morad, Anthony, Ian, Max, Kelsey.

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!

Jim
