Price Execution

Our proprietary order routing system has resulted in better price improvement vs. the industry averages.2 Most brokers trade against your orders, or sell them to others who will trade against them. That can result in a less than favorable execution. The resulting poor execution may cost more than the commission you pay. Our technology continuously searches and reroutes to the best available prices for stocks and options.
