Can you use different data feeds with IB? I thought you could use a different platform but you had to use their data?

Yes I totally agree. My perfect broker would have decent commissions, be FCA regulated, and have servers in europe (with good data), and you wouldn't think that would be so hard!! Surely there's a gap in the market here!?

Not really a gap at the moment, there might be if they change the rules on forex/spreadbetting. Most pro’s in the uk are using one of the bigger clearing houses and through some kind of prop/arcade solution. What product/style are you trading? There might be a better solution than IB.
