For high-speed order routing clients can choose between: Patsystems and CQG. Professional futures traders only use brokers offering tick-by-tick data. Why? Firstly, tick-by-tick data does not distort technical analysis. Secondly, order execution is faster and more precise. This is important. One single tick in your favour on, for example, the Eurostoxx50 future equals € 10 extra profit. Other brokers tend to provide ½ second snapshot quotes which result in inferior order execution. If you want to trade futures actively do not trade on the basis of ½ second snapshot quotes.

Patsystems charges an inactivity fee if a person has not executed at least one order in the last month. If a client does not meet this criterion a £ 75 charge is applicable.
CQG offers up to 1.000 ticks per second. The traded market volume is the most precise available. CQG applies a monthly user charge of € 10. High-volume traders can opt for a flat fee of € 395 per month instead of paying the 0,50 per lot per side. Additionally clients have access to CQG M which allows trading from mobile devices.
