Best Direct Access Brokers for Option Trading

Discussion in 'Options' started by WCoastInvestor, Aug 23, 2002.

  1. I was interested in what are considered the best direct access brokers for both INDEX and LISTED options, but primarily index options.

    More specifically in providing:

    (1) Level II quotes

    (2) Ease of routing to an exchange and market maker

    (3) Fastest Execution

    (4) Reliability (order execution and system crashes)

    (5) Good Reputation in compensating for poor trade execution

    Of course, an easier to use system and lower price is preferred, but the above 5 are most important in that order.

    Thank you.
