    dont know if this is the right thread to use but anyone use Mb trading.

    I do and for some reason whenever there is heavy selling or buying the whole system freezes up. Anyone else have the same problem?

    MB Trading has been plagued lately with quote delays whenever volume spikes. Needless to say this is a problem for day trading. They say they are fixing the problem. In the meantime, beware if trying to trade on market moving news.

    you people with mb are foolish. ib's much cheaper and there data's much better. why would anyone ever use retail mb
  7. anyone else can't connect now?
  8. Likewise, cannot connect.
  9. Agreed.

    I had an account with them a few years ago. It was used for swing and position trades only. Their quotes were constantly going down and orders were routinely getting stuck. Couldn't imagine ever using them to actively trade.

    Stay away.
  10. direct access firms let you trade directly with an ECN. they do not have to go through another brokerage before posting with an ECN.
    tdameritrade trades against you (sells shares of your equity to you before getting the order to an ECN). therefore they are a brokerage not a direct access company. don't day trade or swing trade with a brokerage only direct access company's.
