    Hi Vince,

    I have been with MBTrading the last six months and have no complaints at all. The customer service has been top notch and the fills are fast and good.

    Initially I was using eSignal for charting, but have since moved to Medved Quote tracker which is free and which I actually like better for most things. The real time data comes into Quote Tracker from MBTrading, and you can subscribe to a service for about $20 a month for historical backfill.

    Jerry Medved of Quote Tracker like Steve at MB, monitors this forum and has been super helpful whenever I have need a question answered.

    Good, dedicated folks at both places so I would not hesitate at all to recommend that set up at all.

    Hope it helps,

    wow , sounds like a great broker.

    Have you had any times that when canceling an order or changing took a while to get the confirmation?

    I had this problem with my old broker and got screwed over 5-6 times for having to wait a long time to mod my order

    nope, never had anything like that happen. But they do have a trading desk where you can call and they can check on your orders right away if need be. I have done that when I was concerned about an order and they were helpful. I keep the phone nums and my account info handy just in case there is a prob as it is always a concern with any technology, and I try to stay aware of that possibility.

    Good Luck,
