    For someone in Europe trading Eurex

    futures , what difference would there

    be in execution speed between a

    US based broker and a European

    based broker ?
  2. the speed will depend on your lines first, then the lines of your broker next. Make sure your broker has fiber lines to a eurex hub.
  3. The speed difference between a U.S. firm with fiber lines to Eurex and a European firm with fiber lines is milliseconds.

    Ok, let's have a look at the numbers. These are times measured by me via pingplotter. I'm in Europe and using a not so fast internet connection. With a fast one my time to IB Swiss would be 30ms.
