Message to IB: SGX Nikkei futures commission structure

Discussion in 'Interactive Brokers' started by wwx, Apr 17, 2007.

  1. Why IB Staff does not explain the irrationalities of the commission structure? I don't see why it has to be configured in such a weird way.

    Got to see the thread in order to reply....

    The unbundled are basde upon currency. Programming work needs to be done to change that to product based. I understand it's on the queue but some other higher priority projects are ahead of it. If it's important to you the please vote for it in the client survey.

  3. What do you mean by "based on currency"? Please explain that bit.
    I think this problem can be easily solved if you add the minimum() function when calculating the unbundled price.

    For example,
    mimimum(unbundled price of 1st tier, bundled price * 95%)
    mimimum(unbundled price of 2nd tier, bundled price * 85%)
    mimimum(unbundled price of 3rd tier, bundled price * 75%)
    and so on

    If the unbundled price is higher than the bundled price *95% for example, it will use the bundled price * 95% instead.

    It shouldn't need to take more than 1 year to address and solve these irrationalities.

  5. You are also moaning too but just in the area of your own interest.

    It's just boring.
