Brokerage execution comparison for ES/ZB: Interactive Brokers vs. Ninjatrader

has anyone tried BOTH Ninjatrader (brokerage, not just trading platform) AND Interactive Brokers?

Data feed issues and charting differences aside, did you notice any salient differences with fills/executions/slippage trading futures (ES/ZB)?

Thanks!

A typical retail trader with a typical futures broker will notice no difference in fills. This is futures after all, not forex, and is a regulated central marketplace.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Doesn't Interactive Brokers use simulated stops in futures? In other words, they keep the stop working on their servers and once the trigger price trades, they then send the order as a market order into the market place?

Compared to a broker that puts the order directly into the exchange, the fills can be very different in the event of a dramatic market event (for example, the Swiss Central Bank decides to end its peg with the Euro).

It depends on the exchange and product so you have to specify which product and the exchange. If the exchange allows a type of order to be native, then its native. If not, then it can be simulated. Here is a link to the order types allowed by the EUREX as an example.
