    I want to find a list of firms offering basket trade execution capabilities. If anyone knows of such a list, I would really appreciate your passing it on.

    Short of such a list (which may or may not actually exist), if you know of brokers providing basket trading functionalities, please let me know.

    thus far, I have found:
    MB Trading
    Trade Factory


  2. Evolution Capital. They have prop and retail divisions. Baskets are executed through HydraTrade software. I trade baskets daily and think the basket capabilities of the software are excellent.

    You can pm me if you want more details.

    How big is the basket? If it isn't that big, you could just go with sequential entry in a low latency brokerage. I'd key on that. If it is a big basket, it depends on the software used. Also, the bigger the basket, the higher the throughput you'll need as well. Throw some more detaisl out here on your style, what you are tradinhg, and your volume and you might get some better color.
