Why is it so hard to get fills with options when using SMART ? typically, if the market is locked with bid=ask on smart, I get no fill and IB just keeps my order green but does nothing ! So annoying. I wasted 15 cents yesterday that way. What I did was to add new option lines to ISE and AMEX. Then pick the 'best' one manually. I know you can reroute from the 'smart' but if you don't know where to, it's useless. Am I the only one with no execution, while the market is there ? PS : I also tried 'market' instead of limit order. even worse on the 'smart' routing. I got a fill below the bid (I was selling).
