I've been trading the Hang Seng (HSI) more lately and have tried to find an alternative to Interactive Brokers- to no avail. OEC now has the HSI but their commissions are more than 3x IB's. $10 USD RT plus 42.40 HKD (~$5.40 USD) exchange fees (even though the ACTUAL ex fees are 21.20HKD- wtf). So, it's about $4.90 USD all in RT with IB, over $15 at OEC. I have found the same disparity with Phillip, Saxo, MF Global (who it appears has dropped the contract), etc. I cannot imagine traders in HK are paying $10-15 USD RT, but i can't find a broker even close to IB's rate, and often they don't even have DOM. Does anyone know a legitimate alternative? Last week's outage has me looking for, at a minimum, a backup to IB in case IB goes down, but would ideally like to find something better than IB, but there is no way i can add 7-10,000 USD per month in additional commission- it would destroy my P&L.
