Excellent broker, excellent customer service. Futures traders have a lot of details to think about and its easy to miss something. Every time I call and speak to Matt or Jake Im treated with respect and responded to genuinely. I never feel as if I have a question that is too simple to ask, which is extremely important. Because I dont hesitate to communicate with them, I dont hesitate to trade with them. They are very accommodating, always ready to help, and the commissions are excellent.
I was with my futures broker for over 25 years and, due to circumstances beyond my control, I had to move. I searched far and wide and chatted to many alternative brokerage firms before settling on Optimus Futures. Matt, at Optimus, is unlike any other broker I have ever encountered. He is very personable, approachable and customer orientated. His knowledge of all the futures platforms and technologies, and his rolodex of contacts, is beyond comprehension. He listened to what I required and then came up with the best solution. He is always available to chat and advise and his efficiency with execution is impressive. I foresee a long and prosperous future with Optimus and Matt. Anyone requiring a futures broker, you will not find better. Thanks Matt.
I am so lucky to have found Matt and Optimus Futures. I have been searching for a futures broker for quite some time and I spoke to countless folks at different brokerages. Matt at Optimus was the only one who seemed to value me as a potential customer. I have been with Optimus for a few weeks now and I couldnt be happier. Whenever I have a question, Matt or one of his colleagues responds to me the same day, usually within a very short amount of time. Their tech support is outstanding and Jake has been extremely helpful at guiding me through different platforms and assisting with any technical issues or questions. They care, they are responsive and they are knowledgeable, both technically and about futures trading. I couldnt ask for more. I would recommend wholeheartedly and without reservation.
Its no surprise that all reviews on every review site are exceptional. When I began looking into Optimus, I spoke with Matt right away and he walked me through what was going to be the best data and clearing firm for me. Ive been with Optimus for about 2 months, and because of my circumstances, Ive had the pleasure of speaking with most of the team multiple times. Matt, Marilyn, and Jake have been very patient and helpful, theyve been available every time Ive needed them and this goes a long way for me. I dont think service can get much better than this.
I have been with Optimus Futures for over 10 years. The support have been excellent. All the staff are friendly and very helpful. I am being treated as a family rather than a customer.
Having had a trading account with Optimus for some time now, I continue to be impressed with the superior level of customer service received. At Optimus, you are known personally and your situation is assessed individually. From the ownership and management to tech support, there is a level of professionalism and expertise, that combined with tremendous service, leads to the kind of experience one would hope to have with a top notch brokerage. I would recommend them to anyone.
I was a bit skeptical at first with opening an account with a smaller firm such as Optimus but MAAAAN Im I happy to have found them! Matt and Jake were super helpful with setting up my account and platform. They are very respectful and courteous, no matter the amount of experience you have. Forget the long waiting time over the phone just to talk to someone at the brokerage, you call and BOOM someone picks up ready to help you. I live in Ottawa, Canada and event hough im a couple thousand KMs away, i feel safe with them. Strongly recommend!
Where is your 10 Stars Rating? Also AGREE with other reviews… I sensed immediately the improved Difference dealing at Optimus with both Matt & Jake & Marilyn + team. Instead of Big or Other brokers, BEGIN with Nothing to lose… everything to gain ! D.Smith,Canada
Looking for a futures broker? Matt Marilyn Jake and all are ready to streamline your trading experience. I was impressed to receive numerous personal phone calls from Marilyn over the course of an account routing transition, to personally ensure that everything proceeded in good time and as planned. In short, you need not look any further.
My experience with Optimus Futures is very positive. Matt Z. is proactive in reaching out to assure that customer needs are being met. All questions answered honestly. Conservative and realistic advice given. Matt Z. is the real deal. Office Manager, Marilyn competently takes care of the account set up details.
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 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, Ive opened an account with them and will be a lifelong customer.
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 RApi. 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 youre 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. Ive traded with a lot of brokers over the 20+ years I have been at this. If I dont 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.

This matter should be viewed as a solicitation to trade. Trading futures and options involves substantial risk of loss and is not suitable for all investors. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. The risk of loss in trading commodity interests can be substantial. You should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your financial condition. The placement of contingent orders by you or broker, or trading advisor, such as a stop-loss or stop-limit order, will not necessarily limit your losses to the intended amounts, since market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. The high degree of leverage that is often obtainable in commodity interest trading can work against you as well as for you. The use of leverage can lead to large losses as well as gains.
