Welcome to the Optimus community forum and thank you for your post.
For live accounts through Optimus Futures, the last step in the process is to configure a client for their platform, live market data, and a data feed for execution. This comes after a client has already applied for a live account, been approved, and funded.
These are the data feeds that we currently support at Optimus Futures: Futures Market Data Feeds | Rithmic | CQG | CTS | TT | Optimus Futures
To help you answer your question, do you have a specific platform in mind that you wanted to use for Futures trading? Or do you have a data feed that you would prefer? To help narrow down which data feed you would like to use, we typically first look at the platforms we have available and whether or not those platforms are compatible with the data feed you are interested in. Or vice versa.
If this is your first time trading futures, in my opinion, I would start with a demo. Here are the various platforms we support: Futures Trading Platforms & Software | Optimus Futures you can sign up for demos on the majority of those platforms through the link above as well.
If you aren’t sure or need help deciding on a platform thats best for you, you can always book a meeting with someone on our team or give us a call at: (561) 367-8686. Feel free to also reply to this post with features you need in a trading platform and we can make suggestions here as well!
I hope this helps! Any additional information you can provide in order to point you in the right direction would be helpful.
