    Contacted Matt via the chat feature on the Optimus website. Shortly into the exchange he said," Let me just give you a call." Which I really appreciated, especially since it was late in the day. He's, honest, direct and very willing to share what he sees in the industry. I couldn't be happier with Optimus.

    Matt’s patience and expertise in futures gave me the comfort of opening an account and begin trading. From the first day we spoke he listened carefully to my concerns and guided me to the best platform that fits my needs. His knowledge of the different technological features of the platforms is exceptional. He also understood my needs regarding FCM's and really set me up beautifully. The service in the office is very professional, quick and efficient. I very highly recommend Optimus to all.

    After researching many "discount" futures broker for a while, the name Optimus Futures kept surfacing. I read many reviews, watched countless futures trading videos and even asked my colleagues in the futures community about Optimus. They all seemed to agree that Matt Zimberg and Optimus Futures is solid. After Matt's interview with a large and successful Trader/CTA (who's still Optimus' client) whom I've met and have a great respect for, I decided to give Optimus a chance. I am very satisfied.

    Optimus Futures has the fastest support response I have ever seen. Seems like they have people respond to email 24/7. Whenever I call or email, there are always people ready to help. Thats what I call a 5 star service. It’s simple but very few can do it. Luckily, Optimus is one of them.

  • Optimus Futures does a great job of matching you up with the clearing firm and platform to meet your needs. Everything has been transparent and straightforward from the start. Matt Z. also has a wealth of knowledge as evidenced from his Youtube channel and blog posts, which I find rare in the brokerage business.

    I joined Optimus Futures because I saw great reviews on how well they take care of their customers. Well I am a true believer myself now. The Optimus team quickly, tirelessly and with full effort worked with me to overcome technology issues with the setup of my account and trading platform. It is clear that taking care of the customer is the center of all they do and I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone else that needs a broker who will always take care of them.

    The benefit of having Optimus Futures as my 'umbrella' Broker are many: continuity over my trading career due to the long-standing account management by Optimus; the ability to switch platforms and data providers without losing the personal relationship built up over time; trust (this cannot be overstated); unbiased and sometimes frank advice (to save me from myself :) I wholeheartedly appreciate the care shown by Optimus Futures over the past 8 years of our relationship.

    I had a great experience with Optimus Futures right from the start. They responded in a great fashion to accommodate my data-feed and initial trading setups and negotiated on my behalf with the FCM in a very satisfactory way. I recommend Optimus as one of the best IBs out there.
