The best platform to trade with real tick data

  1. Hi, I have seen that with IB TWS is impossible to trade systematic trading style.... the main reason is that the limit orders not fill in right mode or never fill it... one of the main reason is the latency of the tws, because the time to place one order to the market is 70 microseconds or more, and depends of your internet line and then depends of the Ib servers of zug.

    Plus all this issue, the data has a latency too and is not a tick data real time.. is one second price and to trade with ticks chart is really impossible and miss a lot of trades....

    My question is to know if somebody has TT conected with multichart and can give us some clue about the execution in automatic mode becaused really i am worried with that topic and is realli important.

    Thank you for the help :confused:
  2. Hey man, I am also studying into using TT for automated trading and even systematic trading...

    I am thinking of using FIX to submit orders,

    but how to keep track of limit/market orders and get good execution, I don't know.

    Anybody shed some lights?
