Equities Broker for Multicharts

Discussion in 'Retail Brokers' started by daniel33, Aug 8, 2008.

  1. I'm looking for an Equities Brokerage firm that integrates well with Multicharts or Ninja and that charges a rate on a per shares basis, unlike Ameritrade.

    Some have suggested IB but claim the speed is not the best.

    Are there any options without incurring in 3rd party or additional fees (Like Tradestation does) to get the appropriate feed speed?

    I'm basically trying to find broker that has reliable speed, does per share trading commissions and integrates with Ninja or Multicharts.

    This might be wishful thinking but giving it a shot.

    Thank you

  2. There is nothing wrong with the speed of IB's data. If data updates 3 to 10 times a second is not fast enough for you, then you need to pay to colocate a server next to the exchange.

    If you require tick data rather than snapshot data, you will have to pay for a 3rd party data vendor.

    You could check out MB Trading...I don't recall what their current commission options are.
  4. Ray,

    Thank you for your suggestion.

    Unfortunately MB Trading does not support a rate based on number of shares unless you do pinks which do not interest me.

    Too bad it looked like a good promise considering they support NT.
