QuoteTracker with IB

Discussion in 'Trading Software' started by EMini-Player, Jun 12, 2003.

  1. Any IB customers use QuoteTracker for order entry? I don't like the TWS interface, and would rather use QuoteTracker but am afraid executions might be slower with QT. Any thoughts?

    Thanks. :cool:
  2. ^^^
  3. Why would the executions be slower? They go through the same TWS.

  4. x-tra layers to go thru?
  5. the extra layer is right on your computer, not some other server on the internet. The time it takes from the time you submit the order to the time you get filled and notified of the fill can easily be sub-second. You may be able to get a small fraction of a second faster direct through TWS, but the order entry will negate any advantage.
