  1. My last poll regarding a non-java TWS attracted many voters.

    This one is more special:

    Should IB start to distribute "Last Price" and "Volume" data for transactions on IdealPro ?

    Currently, they do not. Obviously to prevent competitors and other parties to know how much business they do at what time.

    However, I would vote they should now.
    In their own interest. If the volume is a nice number, they will attract more business alone with that.

    def Interactive Brokers


    it is meaningless as the IB volume is not reflective of the entire market.

    with you comment above, I'm curious how a high volume number will attract more business. I would think what counts tight spreads for size. ie. a 1 pip euro/usd spread 15milion up to me is a bigger selling point
