‘ve noticed that some of the people on here that use an ECN broker for example, seem to have this ‘holier than thou’ attitude towards anyone else who uses any type of SB company or any company who is a market maker. From what i’ve seen, it doesn’t make that much difference in terms of where the price is, i often talk with people who trade DMA and when they ask what price i have at that instant its always the same, its never been out more than a point with IG or CS. So if the price is the same, and there is instant execution (which many SB companies now have) and similar spreads (often even smaller) then whats the problem?
Whats your views on SB & MM companies in general, and why?
