Hi all. Forgive me my english isn't very well. Is it possible to trade futures with interactive brokers without losing money? I mean, IB doesn't have realtime data but they are using snapshot data. Is this a handicap? If you trade for een longer term i think it really doesn't matter but what if you will scalping or something? Are there any succesfull traders here who are using only interactive brokers? Thanks!

Data is not the reason one chooses Interactive Brokers IMHO.

Many other reason for sure. I consider my cash nice and secure with them best in the industry. Thatís one reason. 10 ms latency is another.

As mentioned, see if you can get data from IQFEED.
