Lightspeed v. RealFast Trader

Discussion in 'Retail Brokers' started by GolfTrader, Jul 18, 2010.

  1. I am going to change Brokers soon. Right now I am with E*Trade Pro (paying lower than posted rates as I was a Brown & Co. trader when they were merged several years ago).
    I am going either with Lightspeed or maybe RealFast Trader (apparently associated with Stock USA).
    The rates are pretty much the same (.40 per 100 share) although platforms are different. I have test driven Lightspeed and will do the same for RealFast Trader (DAS TraderPro) this week.
    I average only about 5,000 shares a day usually trading only SMH,XLF, and GDX etfs.
    Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

    Yes, DAS Trader sucks. Go with lightspeed. Much easier to work with.
