  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Hey MetalTrade,

thanks for the additional info on InteractiveBrokers. The servers in Switzerland make me that more confident on the choice.

I went through all the brokers supported by Multicharts and none of them (apart of course from IB) offer the Italian market. I am going to go with them. Over time, I'll post my (hopefully positive) experience with IB.

I decided for eSignal as my datafeed, since they offer a wide variety of markets as well.

If I would trade the Italian market I would sure go with IB. Zug is pritty close to Italy.

If you are thinking about scalping with IB, please check out buttontrader, it will take you a month or so to get used to (AT LEAST) but you will thank me forever in your wildest trading dreams.

I've been using IB with automated / non automated systems for years and apart from minor details,I haven't had any problem. Also data feed is good for discretionary trading, if you consider that comes in 200ms snapshots
