Best Exceution/Routing Choice for Breadth of energy products?

Discussion in 'Commodity Futures' started by comintel, Aug 10, 2011.

  1. Since Interactive Brokers does not offer some energy products that I want (such as implied contracts and Brent options), I am looking at others.

    Which of the following execution and routing choices would offer the widest range of energy products worldwide, including spreads and options:

    -Trading Technologies

    (I am not asking about the user software platform as such, which can be a separate issue because you can mix and match to some extent at brokers like deepdiscounttrading, a Crossland IB. I will place orders manually for now that are position trades so I do care about the UI or about charts or static DOM and will just choose a low-end software platform to start with.)

    If the breadth of the range of products depends also on the broker, as well as on the execution and routing choice, I am also open to using any broker.

    Thanks for any comments.
  2. CQG is less reliable from that list

  3. Thanks - they do seem to have a good number of spreads.

    However from that list they appear not to have ICE Brent Options.
  4. Oh I should have included CTS as well as TT, Rithmic, and CQG among the choices.

    Everything is not equal; infrastructure plays a big part. And there is qualitative differences with regard to that...
