Question for ETF traders

Discussion in 'ETFs' started by Ialwayslearn, Nov 25, 2008.

  1. Do you ever have any problem with odd lot fills?
    Say for 3574 shares or 2217 as examples?

    Specifically in the SSO or QLD.

    How about the SPY or Qs?

  2. CET


    I am just speculating based on my experience, but I believe the odd lot fills are from your broker filling the order in house. It would be interesting to know which broker you use.
  3. No brokers to trade stocks right now, only futures.

    I am looking to use the ETFs as a way to better size my posiitons based upon account equity.

    Example: If I am trading 5 ES contracts I need a 20% increase in account equity to trade 6 contracts.

    With the ETFs I can add size with a very small % equity increase.
    100 shares gets moved to 102 with a 2% equity increase.

    Anyone have any thoughts?
  4. Most liquid shit, no issues there. As long as you hit (pay market price).
