You asked me to check if limit orders I submitted through IB also appeared in Fido’s quote system.

I submitted an order just now. The book at ET was 95.500x102(1). IB was showing the same lot. So I submitted a limit order through them for one, which should have showed up on Fido’s book. But it didn’t. Also, they were quoting that same 102 lot, but with a min of 5.

One instance doesn’t constitute a pattern or trend. But I haven’t yet found a reason to execute through Fido over anyone else. (The research they offer is another matter.)
