@MichaelGoode Hi Michael. You mention on your blog that you do not use TWS anymore, but you are still using Interactive Brokers. I was just wondering if you are using DAS connected with IB or a different broker for the charts and L2 but use IB to execute orders. Thank you.

I don't know where I would have said that -- I still use TWS. I do use DAS Pro with Centerpoint for level 2 and charts

Oh sorry, I didn't read that carefully. You replied to someone on your blog that you still use TWS but not time and sales and L2. Do you think DAS level 2 and time and sales is more accurate than IB's?

TWS L2 & time and sales is just as good but I have always considered TWS charts ugly. I have used them in the past but I just find it easier to use DAS Pro and I have to pay for those charts / L2 anyway whereas I don't have to pay for the IB L2 if I don't want it

@MichaelGoode Hey Michael, I'm trying to see which fee structure is better for pennies. Tiered or Fixed (interactive brokers) Have you used both fee structure? If yes which one is best to choose? Thank you in advance.

Either tier structure is expensive for cheap stocks (particularly under $1 per share). I recommend tiered if you buy on the bid and sell on the ask more often than not

Thanks Michael, I'm guessing tiered fee structure is best if you add liquidity to the market, and get rebates on that?

Yes, if you add liquidity then tiered is best and overall it will be cheaper

@MichaelGoode Hey Michael got another question for ya. What problems might arise when trading Sub dollar stocks? I'd like to trade these (longs only) so I can take larger position sizes for larger nominal profits.

Keep in mind that what matters is not the price but the volatility. If you have a $10k position in a $1 stock and it goes up 10% you will make $1k. If you have a $10k position in a $10 stock and it goes up 10% you will still make $1k. So don't avoid trading higher-priced stocks for that reason. If you are trading Nasdaq stocks then all that matters is that your broker doesn't charge you per share commissions (or else it will get very expensive). If the stocks are OTC (most of the cheapest stocks
