Does anyone use IB to scalp Forex?
I'm almost at the "fund an account" stage with my forex scalping. Yay me!
I've been using MBT Navigator, and it's nice and quick, and that's all nice, but it's a bit limited.
I really like IB's ability to trade off the chart - good array of presets, and you can drag the stop along behind as the price moves. Can even exit by dragging the stop past the price. All very intuitive, very quick. I likes it.
Problem is, on the demo account, fills take about a month. Sometimes never. You can drag your stop-limit entry right down past the price, you've got an 80% chance of nothing happening for at least 30 seconds or so. Same with stops (at market). Which is, you know, sub-optimal.
I've heard that it's an issue only with Forex and only with the demo account - but also some rumours about it intermittently occurring on a live account.
So, does anyone scalp forex with IB?
Not so keen to muck around with extra funding for the IB account if I'm going to want to shoot it in a couple of months.
