    What are yours? I've struggled with ~ 250 ms average for a while now, and am now looking for something much faster. Anyone want to lend a hand?

    are you writing directly to the cbot? or are you going through a broker who computes your margins, probably does other stuff, and then sends your order to the cbot which then sends back to your broker then to you?
  3. You need to ping your broker/clearer's server. That's the only part you have control over unless you change to another broker/clearer.

    Can you tell us where you are and who you clear thru? We can then help out.
