Anyone have experience using interactivebrokers.com for trading e-mini contracts or generally?

Or, comments on any other suitable broker who you might recommend based on your experience?

Thanks for the reply Neil. I'd forgotten about the elitetrader.com site too so will take a read of the comments there also.

I've used IB for a couple of years. Their platform is constantly undergoing upgrades. If you do use them, I preferred the TWS stand alone platform. Once you become familiar with it, it is very good. Hard to beat their commissions, but Global Futures matched them, and GF's margin is $500.00 per car. A word of caution, IB will liquidate any position you have approx. 30 minutes before the market closes, if your account is less than $4000.00.
