spec and Bryan- I've been having problems with Echo remote too. It hasn't been horrible...but it's far from great. And I spoke with a few people at one of the offices , they said they've been having problems too. When I was at MBT , there was at least one problem a week. So maybe there are problems everywhere. Who knows? I can only say that I'm sure glad I have my $ spread over different accounts. ANd yeah I've been placing more trades at the retail broker and paying more in commissions..but the frequent outages have really left me no other choice. It just seems that someone would get THE best feed....to make more $. I know it can be done. I worked at 2 major wirehouse for 4years...and maybe lost data feed 4 times total. what can we do?
