I switched from MB trading to IB brokers because of the .005 cent comm. as to the .01. Half price. I daytrade only stocks at about 10,000. shares per day. I just cant get comfortable with the IB TWS platform. I find it is not user friendly and too cumbersome. I did like the MB platform and I have used in the past, and like Real Tick, Light Speed, Watcher. Can anyone give me advice or point me in a direction of where I can get a user friendly platform? Will I need to switch brokers again? I dont want to pay more than .005 per share. And I want to feel that my money is safe with a reputable clearing firm or self clearing broker. Thanks for your reply.
