I think that IB would rule the world if they rebated traders comissons based on their monthly volume, as long as the shares were executed on TMBR. Say for example the following schedule: > 100K shares traded per month - get back 10% of your comission rebated > 200K shares traded per month - get back 11% of your comission rebated > 500K shares traded per month - get back 20% of your comission rebated ... >1M shares traded per month - get back 50% of your comission rebated And so on. The idea is that what IB lost in comissions, it would make back in it's proprietary trading - since it's own traders (IB traders) are adding liquidity to trade "against," that should theoretically be good for them. If you look at the breakdown of what IB makes versus what Timber makes, the breakdown in profits is something like 25M for IB, 475M for Timber. Seems like a good strategy for them and a good strategy for us. What do you think? Vote on it.
