Hi, I'm interested in hearing success stories from others, in terms of how other future brokers provide pit trading access. I'm looking primarily at pit-based options. With my current broker (an introducing broker), I: - call in to their trade desk... which takes my order over the phone... - and then calls it to the clearing firm (RCG)... - which then sends it down to the floor... - and however many minutes later, the process is reversed and I will be notified of a fill. I'm never notified of order cancellations (end of day), and really have no way of checking order status. I've been told other brokers might offer direct access (pick up the phone and dial) into a pit broker. Would that be a significant improvement to what I'm doing now? Are there any brokers that offer electronic trading interface into the pit? More than anything else, I'm concerned about: a) timely quotes, b) easy order placement (preferable electronic, but phone's an option too) b) timely fill notification. Commissions are not an issue.
