    I have Schwab Smart Street Edge platform open and IB Option Trader and Book trader for option I am looking at. Schwab shows contracts traded, but IB shows only previous days close, and no trades. WHy is that, and who do I believe? I can put in my price, and I know where price should be, and the Schwab platform and their actual trades seem to reflect the current. Why is IB not reflecting the same? I would think with their claims of price improvement they would be at current price, but at least when I load the option in Book trader I can't scroll the price to what is apparently the current price.
    Kind of irritating to say the least.
