    Lets face it folks, Interactive brokers are going down the tube.
    Theyr'e getting too big and can't handle the volumn. I can't
    continue pulling the trigger at -$30 and getting filled at -$125.
    (mini Dow). I would appreciate as much input as possible here.
    I hate paying over $3 aside for futures, IB is 2.40 but if you loose
    10 times as much because it's too crowded what the heck.
    can any one reccomend a good discount broker that is reasonable? I do 10+ trades per day! thanks..john

    My fills have all been nearly instantaneous at IB . I don't think your problem is with IB, the markets move pretty fast sometimes.
    But i never trade Dow mini, maybe its that product.
  4. From what I've read, FFastTrade is supposed to be quick. So far, I haven't had any issues with IB, which may be because I don't trade full-time.
