Day Trading - Interactive Brokers vs Lightspeed trader
 
Hey guys,

I day trade US stocks with Lightspeed trader, being based in CH, and looking forward to change broker due to high commissions.

Any experience with IB for US stocks, and would you recommended it for quick executions and low commissions when comparing both?

Thanks a lot!

Yes, executions are instant (if you have the right price), and commissions are peanuts (mostly 0.33USD for US-based items, 2USD for exchange CFH-USD).

Thanks for the feedback, speed execution has been a nightmare recently with many US brokers, this helps!

No issues with Interactive Brokers and commissions for US exchanges are ultra low. Depends on the size you want to trade though. More money less expensive to daytrade.

Would you guys recommend Das Trader on top?
