    I had gotten to the point where I believed customer service was a thing of the past especially when electronic trading came of age. That was until Rob Mitchell mentioned the company Optimus in one of his YouTube videos. After doing some research I contacted the company and met Matt, in the last 30 years I have never experienced this kind of customer service. The man and his company are genuinely concerned about their customers, I've opened an account with them and will be a lifelong customer.

    Throughout my years of trading, I have worked with multiple brokers. Some bad. Some good. That being said, Optimus is who I choose to work with. They have a great staff that answers the phone. They competently and logically answer my questions. Good round trip pricing. Good people. Good business. Optimus Future is a class act.

    I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Optimus Futures. Having used Interactive Brokers, I began researching other companies with lower commissions. That was my ultimate goal. One thing I realized was that by paying lower commissions, I may not be better off. What if I had worse service? A worse experience? Worse fills? None of this has happened thus far with Optimus Futures. My conversation started with Matt on the phone where he listed to the details of my application and what I was looking for. He quickly got me in touch with the folks at Rithmic so I could get started integrating the R|Api. If I had a question, Matt or his team responded to me in such a timely manner that I felt like like a VIP. More than that, Matt has provided such a wonderful perspective when it comes to trading and how a successful algorithmic trader should approach trading with ideas like focusing on scalability and trying to reduce latency as much as possible. When it comes to actually running in production, Optimus Futures has helped me achieve far better results than at IB. The fills via Rithmic have been great and on-par with my expectations. I look forward to continuing to work with Matt and his team as I know I will be sticking with them for a long time. If you're looking for amazing service and awesome prices, then look no further. You will not be disappointed. Again, thank you for everything!

    I am a tough customer. I've traded with a lot of brokers over the 20+ years I have been at this. If I don't think I am getting the support and service I expect, I vote with my feet and move on. Matt and Optimus is one of the hardest working brokers I have encountered. He makes me feel like he truly wants my business and for that and his continued support, I am a happy customer. I hope to continue to grow my trading activities with Optimus Futures.

    Optimus Futures is a first class IB with great support and stellar approach to client relations. Matt has extensive knowledge of the industry and personal interest in making sure platforms and feeds were setup with maximum efficiency. The office staff is also great. Trading is very demanding psychologically, its comforting to have a broker that has your back. Highly recommended.

    I couldn't be happier with my decision to trade with Optimus. From the beginning, the website made it easy to explore their massive selection of FCMs/feeds/platforms to find the best combination for my needs. Pricing is transparent and extremely reasonable. But where they really knock it out of the park is in their customer service. When I submitted a support ticket, I heard back from the company's president within minutes. This is a firm that knows how to treat and keep their clients.

    Optimus has provided superior service to me for the last 6 years. Particularly, Matt has been very prompt in responses to issues and questions. Their ability to understand my needs and provide a variety of suggestions and solutions, has kept me with them for years.

    I have been with Optimus Futures about 1-1/2 years. The technical support and personal touch that you are given is very impressive. Calls are returned promptly, you are treated with respect, and patience. They listen to you and help you resolve the issues at hand in a timely manner with kind words and encouragement.

    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 .
