    Broker speed-IB vs. Global

    I am looking for a new broker. I currently use IB and am looking at Global Futures. Does anyone know what kind of execution speed difference I will see at Global through Patsystems Vs. IB?

    Thanks,



    Mark

    I have a backup account with Global / PATS (although IB still primary for me) - have not noticed any difference in speed on few occasions I have used it, ie. both very fast.

      I will now answer my own question. NT through IB is faster than through PatSystems, probably somewhere around 1-2 seconds. It is enough difference to keep me from continuing to trade with a PatSystems connection.

        Can you provide the protocol of how you tested the speed please.

          I ran both platforms side-by-side in live trading. There was a clear difference in speed. As an aside, I have found nothing faster than NT through IB, including X-trader.
