Update:
I start to think if my poorer execution in IBKR may be related to the size of the order. I have a small IRA in Fido and even smaller HSA account in TD. My individual account is in IBKR. When the order size is bigger, it may cause more market gyrations. I moved my individual account to TD and experienced a worse execution than my IRA and HSA account today.

I'll keep you guys posted.

I think TD, IBKR etc. are all facing stiff competition from Robinhood and other 0 commission brokers.

If you're not paying for the product then you are the product.

IBKR is already so much cheaper than the "real" competitors that the grind to the bottom doesn't impact them nearly as much as everyone else. I don't know of any pros who use Robinhood.

From there, we can then get into which services are superior, which is another advantage of IBKR

IBKR is growing accounts at 26% YoY. Their growth has accelerated over the past year. There is no evidence that competition is having any impact on IBKR.

Isn"t Robinhood just derivate trading? You don't own actual securities.

I noticed some discussion of fills through IB compared to elsewhere.
Anyone here use IB's Adaptive algo?
