    Hi all,
    I just moved my account to IB.
    I'm trading solely the ES and I'm very familier with NT but don't know the TWS yet.
    Is there anyone here with expreince trading futures with IB through NT? How is it? what issues does it have?
    AND the TWS is it any good? Is it capable of filling fast orders? How's the buttontrader?

    Anything else I need to know about tradinf futures with IB will be more then welcome

  2. For ES TWS gives you an instant fill on market orders after you transmit the order. Limit orders get an instant fill once the ES goes at least 1 tick past your limit price.

    If you are an active trader then look at IB's BookTrader.
