As a private client of Optimus Trading Group, we empower you with these and more, giving you the choices and resources to invest better, smarter and faster.
Here are some questions that we encounter directly from our customers:
"I am overwhelmed by the choices of brokers on the net, why Optimus?
A: We don't have an agenda! You do what you like...you feel like trading futures online, then we are committed to providing you with a platform that suites your needs. Looking automated systems? Then we are committed to provide with a selection of systems without downplaying the risk...get the picture? Honesty is our policy!
"Brokers are Dime a Dozen! You are all the same....Commissions Driven"
A: At Optimus we believe that Commissions or making money for any organization is a by-product of hard work. So expect us to work hard for your money, your trust and your business. This is the only way we want to get rewarded. Commissions is the only legal way for us to get compensated in a monetary fashion, but we will accept warm apple pies on weekend as gratitude.
"OK,talking about commissions...what do you charge?"
A: Fair Question. Here is how determine commissions: The service you require...the service you use, etc. For example: you might be a day trader who needs Emini SP where we could charge a buck above the exchange rate, or charge a bit more for a totally supervised mechanical trading system we have generated for you. Here is our philosophy: Commissions can't "eat" into your account to the level where you don't stand a chance to make money. We will be fair...because we look at you as a long term asset...not an expiring option.
"hmmm...so what service you recommend for me, I am a beginner"
A:If you are a beginner that never traded futures or commodities, and your first instinct is to trade online, it could be a match, but you have to think well about previous trading experience. Honestly, because you traded before with a discount stock broker for $7.99 makes you a pro to trade a highly leveraged futures contract? We don't know your experience, only you can answer this question.
But, in case you decided that you need some help, we can assign you an experienced broker.Not a schmuk who is being yelled by a sales manager to bring another sale, but a pro wholooks at charts and indicators and see what is going and can convey information to you, so you can make an intelligent decision. Also, we have a selection of automated systems where you could start would something that would give you a feel for themovements that a futures contract can go through. We respect your choice, and guide you the best of our ability.
"I do want to trade online...can you help me with a platform?"
A: Yes, we will give you one based on needs and experience. We will provide you a walk through demo, and will give a demo so you can try it on your own. If you did not like it, then we will give you another platform to test.
"what else is there?" Daily research, daily recommendations, emails statements, portal for statements and confirmations of trades, attentive brokers, best office manager in the world (see Jennifer...we didn't forget you!), fast account opening, variety of platforms, variety of mechanical trading systems,T1 line for fast execution, dedicated server for automated strategies, programmers to program your methodology, 24/5 trade desk support...and many nice people.
