I have a Chicago broker to trade futures and options on futures. They clear through ADM. All Good.


I would also like an account that I could trade futures/options and Stocks all from one account. 

I had an account with Schwab and I could trade all 3 but over the years, i had some issues with them and wanted to try someone else. I then went to Trade Station. I have had them for maybe 3 months. Apparently I have money in my FUTURES account and can buy a Comex Gold Futures contract, but I CAN NOT purchase 2 June 2015 Gold Call for 1000 ($10.00) each because that is an options on futures account and that is NOT funded and the cut off time to transfer is 2:00pm central. haha night desk refused order and I need to move to a different broker. That seem ridiculous. Doesn't it?

I have had many different ones over the years and at this time I use 5 different brokerages.

And I have never had any problems, with any of them over the years,  So I can't really recommend any as far as one being better than another.

I think any of them should do OK.  But that is just me.  Because 2 you mentioned, I use now with no problems.
