Starting to look at IB as a replacement for Etrade, however my first observation on the market data that I see through the IB Webtrader doesn't fill me with confidence.
E.g. as at 10:43am today IB is showing that no trades have taken place on FAR with price still at 0.125, while Etrade (and ASX) is telling me that 100,000 was traded at the open for 0.13.
And in general volumes traded showing in IB Webtrader are far below what Etrade is telling me!
Anyone experiencing a similar thing or able to provide an explanation for this?
