I decided to contact Interactive Brokers, but it was disappointing.

First, they are telling me you can NOT place a limit order that is good for more than one day. So you have to keep logging in day after day to enter new orders. What a hassle that is.

Second, you cannot enter your order on all three electronic trading platforms. You get to route through *one* platform (BondPoint, Tradeweb, or Bonddesk) and you must exclude the other two.

So, unfortunately, the press release reads better than the reality.
