As I am planning to take my fiveHedged strat “TOS” (hopefully next week), I just wanted to ask fellow TOS-certified Trade-Leaders about any advantages/disadvantages in their experience of BrokerTransmit vs Self-Autotrade.
As TL’s will know, there are two options C2 offers for attaining TOS status. The first is via BrokerTransmit (where my live trading account fills would be copied to C2), and Self-Autotrade (which is the quicker/faster/cheaper option for TL’s), which just means subscribing to my own strat and auto-trading it.
As I am mulling over the two, it has occurred to me, that if I was to go the BrokerTransmit route, I would theoretically get my trades executed using broker fills, instead of waiting for the slower C2-autotrade route, which would also imply ‘competing’ for fill-prices with other investors who subscribe/autotrade the strategy via C2.
What about speed-of-fills/execution? How efficient is C2 at copying the trades once BrokerTransmit has been filled?
Any info/experience/counsel would be welcome before I decide which is the best route…
