    One item that may be of interest that sound like from your previous post you are not aware of...
    On the old IB tws3.0 (and hopefully by the end of this month on the java station) you can get market depth for E-mini and NQ futures 5 deep.

    Add the symbol ES.D or NQ.D
    Then, choose the month as normal (exchange will be XXX).
    To get the depth on the screen click bookwin then click the ES.D symbol and the deep book will pop up.

    Thanks, def!

    This is great! It is yet another HUGE plus for Interactive Brokers. I will try this out.

    As I said earlier, I have no intention of changing anything with IB, they are as good a broker as I've ever wished for.

    I'm just looking for a backup. I don't want to have all the eggs in one basket....OK, maybe 11 of the 12 will go to IB.

    Thanks again!
