Can you explain the different trading routes available in tymoraPRO?


Trading routes depend upon each broker, and each type of asset you are trading.  Also be aware that each route may incur additional fees (or rebates) to add or remove liquidity.  These fees change frequently, and may also be different for each stock type (ie. NYSE versus NASDAQ), or even by stock price (ie. < $5/share).  In addition, tymoraPRO generally implements routes on a "best-efforts" basis, if it is deemed to provide true added value for traders.  Also, names may be mapped to near equivalent routes.  You can always compare orders and executions to your broker's platform and clearing reports to be absolutely certain of which routes are being used, and the current costs associated with using them.

Note that this page is a work-in-progress, as available routes are constantly changing.
