my bi-yearly search for a broker OTHER THAN INTERACTIVE BROKERS. i've posted before and had a couple of suggestions, but they were clearly not from people trading volume- as the commission rates were 2-4x those of IB- thus making it an impractical choice given my volume. right now, yet again, the HK server is f-ed up, so i can't trade. executions have been horrific and getting worse over the past couple months (never a problem a year ago). anyway, lots of other reasons why i want to leave IB; suffice it to say. so.... if anyone is using somebody other than IB to do volume trading in the HSI, i would greatly appreciate any input. thanks. TO THE IB DEFENDERS/SHILLS: please, just once, resist the urge to defend and give this thread a pass.
