The goal of this thread is to compile and compare info on brokers that provide low latency direct access. The following features make sense to compare: 1. how low is the latency? milliseconds, microseconds? 2. co-location offered at which data centers? 3. asset classes supported (equities, options, futures, forex, fixed income) 4. destinations supported 5. fees/commissions 6. provides clearing and reportng services or not? 7. APIs offered (FIX and/or binary) 8. quality of customer support 9. min account size 10. leverage 11. anything else? Thanks for contributing to this thread.
