Brokerage Firms
Floyd believes selecting the right brokerage firm is a crucial element to your success.  Each brokerage firm is unique. Some are tailored for professionals whose main requirement is fast execution with a minimum commission while others require help with placing orders and managing trades. For those that need help with placing orders, Floyd recommends paying a little more in commission initially over a period of time until comfortable on their own then switching to a lower commission service.  The goal is to be as independent as possible. 

Below is a list of brokerage firms that provide an array of services, meeting the needs of the beginner trader right up through the professional.



For the established professional trader Floyd recommends Man Financial.  Based in the U.K. Man is one of the largest clearing firms in the world, clearing for many top U.S. FCM's.

Man Financial is one of the world’s leading providers of brokerage services in futures and options to both institutional and private clients, offering advice, execution and clearing services. Man Financial is also an intermediary in the world’s metals, foreign exchange and equities markets. The parent company, Man Group plc, is one of the world’s largest futures brokers, with offices in London, Switzerland, New York, Chicago, Paris and Singapore.
