I used to be a regular on the forex factory forums but I have not posted for years. I am interested with hedging and spread trading strategies. 1. Can you make a Metatrader 4 version of the EA since many brokers don't offer MT 5 yet and many traders ...

Herbun, it is just info that you need to provide Oanda because they have to comply with the rules set by their regulator. You wont have to provide any proof. If you are clever enough in your answers to them, you wont have any problem keeping your ...

I can't see why the word 'Scam' should be in the title of this thread. FXOpen were fined by CFTC for being unregistered. Remember FXCMUK was also fined for same offence some time ago when they failed to transfer their U.S. clients accounts on time. ...

Which set of 3 pairs did you trade?
- PipStar replied Dec 15, 2011
It is a carry trade that is fully hedged from what I understand. I have not explored this opportunity myself but for people interested in earning interest with no risk, it may be a good idea.

You are right. Thanks for your help.
- PipStar replied Dec 6, 2011
Thanks. But unfortunately, it does not work since it is greyed out when shown in the Experts Advisor folder of Metatrader 4. Therefore it cant be opened or attached to a chart. Any chance you can fix this? P.S: Just name it SpielersHedge EA_v2.8.1 ...

The SpielersHedge EA v 2.8.1 on this thread is programmed to only place trades on a demo account. Can someone modify it to place trades on a live account?

This broker has become even worse for the past few months with wide spreads and massive slippage.

Does the expert close trades after a number of pips loss or are you using a seperate EA to stop loss like you are doing to close trades in profit? If so, how many pips are you setting your stop loss at?
- PipStar replied Oct 16, 2011
Can someone amend this EA so that it can open mini lots instead of 1 standard lot? First time I see an EA with so few variables that it's impossible to tell what type of indicator it uses to open trades. Does it make a difference if you set the ...

You can be as apologetic for Go Markets as you wish. Although someone on this thread keeps claiming to have seen a spread of over 200 pips when he was once working on the London desk of another broker the reality is that it just doesnt happen ...

I agree with you. Something has changed at Oanda and they are no longer competitive. I have also moved my account elsewhere.

I am well aware of the website you mention. And many times they have to make corrections because they inadvertently I think post wrong information. Don't believe everything you read on a website and you will save yourself a lot of money. Anyway, ...

I don't know how many times this needs to be corrected but here we go once more. Go Markets are STP and not DMA, there is a difference. And also nothing to do with an ECN. STP (straight through processing) means they may send trades to one or more ...
- PipStar replied May 24, 2011
Agree with you regarding FXCM, I would not use them. But you will be disappointed regarding STP. An STP may route to a Market Maker, a bank, a liquidity provider or a hedging partner as some like to call it. In the end all trades end up at a dealing ...

Since you live in Japan, you should be aware that leverage in your country has been reduced to 25-1. It was reduced to 50-1 at some point with a further reduction to 25-1 from a certain date. That is the reason why many brokers have left Japan due ...

The point of this thread is manipulation by brokers and it's because you can't see it that they keep doing it. Of course it's nothing new and it's been happening for years.

You will receive this message when there is no liquidity to fill your trade in a fast moving market and it is just sitting there waiting for the price to move back and hit your order price again. Or if you are dealing with a market maker and they ...

Oanda like to project a squeaky clean image but they are no better than the rest. Massive spreads during the news time. Like I said above a few myths are being busted about some brokers which were generally seen as being better than others. More to ...
