It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.

Why avoid IB? I don't understand. With Ninja you trade right thru it and you never actually touch IB TWS if you don't want to save for account type stuff. You don't even touch IB's data (which is snap shots data) hence IQFeed which data rocks, best around. IB has the best executions especially for stocks and are global with multiple centers just what you should be looking for IMHO in Italy.

You need to investigate IB much much more they have every conceivable way to structure trading including flat fees for every asset class.

I work with TradeStation directly, but I do not do stocks. From what I know TS works with FCM360 Joins with TradeStation | FCM360.COM If you have programmed with your method this could be a solution. Since you are trading from Europe, you need to decide what is the cause of the issue as you may experience the same with another USA broker. TS is a rock solid platform, try to reach out to your rep to see what data settings you have.

Kind regards,

Yesterday i did trading on SDRL with blocks of 10k shares, pyramiding my position in and out. With IB i would had payd 50$ each plus Transaction fees, pass-through fees etc etc

I think IB is good for trading few hundreds shares of high priced stocks or to short due to the low margin rates
