I trade with datek direct and feel like I'm getting screwed because it is so slow in posting and cancelling orders. I tried their new streamer central hoping it will solve things but it kinda clogs their whole system more? Is it just me or dont they have enough servers? If its them, what's a good direct access firm to switch to? I pretty much narrowed it to cybertrader, ib, and tradestation. Which is ok? and are the firms financially stable? I heard stuff about tradescape, and it kinda scares me. My basis is more on: order execution, costs, platform stability and of course, how financially stable the firm is. Hope you guys have good suggestions.
