NQ/ES order execution IB vs TS ?

  1. I'm using TradeStation 7.2 as my charting package and IB as my broker. I'm quite happy with both at this time. Has anyone used both IB and TS for trading NQ/ES recently? I might open a brokerage account with TS too. I'm wondering how TradeStation NQ/ES order execution compares with IB-- I'd like to know about manual orders not automated ones through Easy Language. I think IB still has quite a bit of advantage over TS since they give access to API and has combination order capability. TS recently introduced a great tool called Matrix but I don't think one can send combination orders with it yet.
