    Over the last 3 or 4 weeks I have had an unbelievable time getting my trades field I go sometimes a nickel better than the natural and sometimes $0.10 and sit for 30 to 45 minutes and on the natural all day and watch it trade well under and never get filled I've about had all I can take

    I don't think this is an issue with tos
    If you are trading SPX or other indexes with a BWB or other complex trades and you have $5 strikes or OTM it may be hard to get filled right away with a small order in the morning even at the natural
    Try to break it up into spreads or leave it there for the day

    I don't think is TOS problem. What strikes were trying to fill? How many days to expiration? Was it monthly or weekly options? How man legs? And of course how fast the market was moving?

    For a few days with a fast moving markets I had very hard time getting fills, then, when the market calmed down I was getting quick fills with 5c - 10c better than mid. (SPX)
