@oceanbreeze, have you had any issues with speed/reliability of IB's order routing?

That's a good point. I am not having any issues with Tradestation or IB/Ninja or IB/Sierra, and all's well with my performance.

It does not appear that a high percentage of people in this forum use Tradestation. There are probably good reasons for that. If I could get a sample of those reasons, that would be great.

Using IB connected to Sierra or Ninja using third party data seems cobbled together, more to go wrong, compared to an all-in-one like CQG or Tradestation for that matter.

I think CQG turns out to be not too much more expensive than Tradestastion. Is that right?

What turns people off Tradestation?

If CQG is in a different league than Tradestation, why is that?

I don't imagine than an almost imperceptible difference in order routing and data speed is going to improve my returns.

That said, I like to have the right equipment, doesn't have to be perfect, just near enough optimal.
