    Wow, I am actually online right now looking at the very same thing! Unfortunately, I need to step away but will be back later. So far I don't see any negatives....


  3. Basically I do think IDealPro is a great platform, provided certain improvements have to be considered.

    How about this "partial fill" issue:
    "Beware - critical flaw in IB Ideal Pro"

    Every user could have a chance encountering this problem, isn't it? How can we avoid this problem completely?

    Hmmmm, also the issue of trading away from my base currency and taking a hair cut on the way back. Looks like they're upgrading to fix the partial fill issue. funny, my a.d.d. kicked in and i went straight to the end of the thread where I saw your post inquiring as to the status of that fix...guess i don't have to read the whole thread! I haven't traded currency futures yet but maybe that's the answer...

  5. Update below:

  6. I think the partial fill issue would become lesser significant when trading orders of relatively large size, say 300,000 units. But it would be still an annoying and cumbersome issue.
