    Did anyone else notice a lag in IB's quotes of the NQ? My fills were terrible in comparison with the quotes, differences of 2 to 3 points over and over again:mad:

    Are you talking about after the fed announcement? I had slow fills too, luckily I came out ahead a couple points because of it though. My stop limits residing on Globex filled just fine.

    Yes, after the announcement. Normally e-signal is lagging IB, but now it was the other way round. My limit orders sucked as well. One time a price got hit 5 times and my order still didn't execute. Worst thing though was that i just exited before the rundown of 20 pts, that I then chased with limit orders... my mistake:(
