It's free and simple. Hi guys, After 1. I am wondering if there are any Aussies here who trade futures and have any advice on brokers which would be suitable. The other thing is; Australia being a long way from the U. S and Europe, how badly does the latency to the brokers servers affect trading in your experience?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I trade 6E during early morning hours EST. Its hard to find a good broker this side of the world with decent latency access to the CME. I use PFG, but it has very bad latency. Anyone else know a closer exchange? Well, ill put a market order in.
By the time it reached the exchange in the USA, price has moved. Now im waiting in line as a limit order. This does not happen often. If you trade breakouts etc, this will happen more.
Im sure there are brokers out there with closer nodes. I have a ping of ms to US exchanges and I mainly use limit orders to enter and both limit and market orders to exit depending on the exchange. Last I checked you can't trade the footsie using Dorman for clearing but I haven't checked since I opened my account. I trade a bit of everything. Australian market is a waste of time in comparison to OS markets and I'm more of a night owl so the timing suits me.
