Trade Execution Speed

Feel confident you can time your next move just right.


Trade execution speed data represents a 6-month rolling average for market orders (100-1999 Shares) in S&P 500 securities.

Trade execution statistics are provided by RegOne Solutions, which is not affiliated with Scottrade. Equity statistics are based on trade activity in two symbol groups: S&P 500 securities and other exchange-listed securities. Statistics exclude trades outside of the regular trading session, orders received during locked or crossed markets and trades that, in Scottrade’s discretion, occur in extreme market conditions or other unique circumstances. Market volatility, volume, and system availability may impact trade execution quality.

Trade execution speed is measured from the time Scottrade routes your order to the marketplace until the time your order is executed at the trading center. Trade execution speed does not include the time it takes for the order to be reported back to Scottrade and you. You will always receive the price at which your order was executed at the trading center even though the execution report that Scottrade receives may be delayed (or “late”) from the trading center. A “late report” refers to when a timely execution is not received from a trading center.

Scottrade monitors execution quality in an effort to seek best execution* for its customers. Scottrade analyzes key execution quality metrics across various bucket sizes and time horizons when reviewing destination performance. Destinations are compared against one another as well as against Industry benchmarks. Scottrade also employs a daily order-by-order exception analysis in an effort to ensure a consistent, quality execution experience for its clients.
