Front End for IB

    I've seen a lot of front ends for Interactive Brokers but they're all for stocks, futures or forex. Is there a front end for entering options orders so I don't have to look at IB OptionTrader ever again?

    Why do you feel you HAVE to stay at IB?
  3. This is the question I have...

    I hear great things about IB's commissions (including fees) and their ability to fill orders and great prices....

    All bad things about their platform... but I also hear about the ability to trade IB options through other means.... As a non-technical person, how do I "have" a better trading platform for IB?

    Optiontrader is much improved lately. Just a few clicks to change month and strikes. I like it.

    Because the commissions are the lowest.
  6. Another question on IB.... by the way I am with OptionHouse today.

    I am now trying to get aggressive about pricing my spreads at the mid-point ... not getting very good fills from OH using this approach.
    I have heard that with IB is very good at getting fills at aggressive pricing... Should I expect to be able to better fill prices at IB vs other brokers?
