Why are other brokers lagging behind us?

Our results would be even more impressive if we consider that statistics are not kept for other routers and it is difficult to understand their order processing speed.

Unlike other routers, SmartRouting always fills your orders. It constantly evaluates rapidly changing market conditions and dynamically reroutes all or part of your order in order to achieve optimal execution and maximum rebate return.
SmartRouting presents every change in the spread and looks for the best price.
SmartRouting autosave - redirects and save the order.
You can use the dark pools in SmartRouting to provide better prices on high volume and bulk bulk orders and to take advantage of hidden order flows that may not be visible on exchanges. There are eight dark pools available.


Our smart router controls the accounting of the transaction costs along with the reward or fee for adding liquidity. For clients who want even more control over their orders, in the Trader Workstation terminal, clients can specify stock and option routing strategies for non-market orders. For stocks and options, clients can configure their non-market orders to be forwarded to:

Paying high rebates.
Optimization by symbol.
The largest volume of transactions and receiving rebates for adding liquidity.
The largest volume of transactions and payment of rebates for withdrawing liquidity.

Clients themselves can choose to send non-market Smart routers and choose their rebates. These routing directives can be set in the "Misc" tab by going to the orders tab, or as global default settings from smart routing on the configuration page.

To change the pricing structure, enter the Client Portal, then in the Account Administration select the Pricing Structure section.
