I felt compelled to write a review because of the service I have received over the years at Optimus Trading Group www.optimusfutures.com I have lacked the following from my previous broker: data feed and complete platform knowledge.

I have found that Optimus technology for futures execution is far superior to what I experienced before. During my time with Optimus I had switched a number of platform as my trading needs changed, and the tech team at Optimus helped me facilitate that every time seamlessly. Their knowledge of the platforms they work with is impeccable.
I now trade directly via R-Trader (due to OCO server based orders) and use Market Delta as my charting package. This is a good team to work with, patient and very customer driven. You need to give them a try even if you are super happy with your broker.

Rithmic only has data back fill for 1 day. The CEO at Rithmic said that he didn't had a clue how he could raise that. I guess that says a lot about their network. I would say 'cut out the middle man' and pass on this IB, go directly to http://www.visionfinancialmarkets.com/ they know what they are talking about and give you a special rate.
