IB - alternative platform in development?

Discussion in 'Retail Brokers' started by droskill, Mar 18, 2010.

  1. I seem to remember Interactive Brokers making an acquisition that many people thought was going to lead to a better platform - I've looked at the FutureTrade acquisition but that doesn't look like it. Anybody remember anything about this, or am I just remembering incorrectly?

    I remember this expensive acquisition. Hope someone can fill us in on its effects. I haven't noticed any changes except that IB's stock price is about 40% lower now. Stosh

    Haven't they already incorporated some of the FutureTrade elements into TWS? I definitely recognize some of the FutureTrade features in TWS.

    Not disputing you, but could you point me to some of those new features? Thanks, Stosh.
