Edward Kim, it's not that I doubt what you say.It's just that my broker is

I am using Lind Waldock, and have found the fills to be very good. However at $30RT a bit expensive. Coffee fills have been good trading
1-3 contracts , the occasional bad fill but in fast market conditions.(The worst fill I received was off by .5 point- $187.50 Overall
fine.
