Should migrate acc to IB?

  1. Not sure whether to migrate my acc to IB, worried that i might not be used to the software of IB, after getting so used to my current broker software. Will it affect your trading performance?

    Anyone have experience moving to IB, re-learning new broker software, will it affect your day trading performance?
     
  2. I highly doubt there are many serious daytraders with their accounts at IB who actually use IB's software to execute trades. I'm not a serious daytrader but I use

    as an order entry and execution platform. Please do a search here to find out about other software platforms which communicate with IB's TWS software. You cannot use TWS to daytrade effectively (at least, I sure as hell wouldn't, unless IB has a new front end available that I don't know about).

    Please search this website - the information you need is all here, you just have to look for it.
