    • Here's my buy hotkey for reference: ROUTE=SMRTL;Price=Ask+0.05;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send It really depends on the volume, liquidity, and volatility of the stock. Sometimes I get filled right at the ASK, sometimes there is a few cents slippage.
    • Hi Seamus, I'm not sure why my screenshot has no ECN fees listed. I use the +/- 0.05 hotkeys as well. Those by definition remove liquidity (hitting the bid/ask) and are subject to ECN fees. I'm with Interactive Brokers and my per share commission is 0.0035. Total per share after fees (SEC+FINRA+ECN) are about 0.005, so I assume those work out to 0.0015 per share. I believe people with CMEG are paying slightly more than that for ECN.
