To touch on one of your points: Because the FX market is so fragmented, i.e., there is not one dominant exchange, but rather many different venues as you have intelligently pointed out, banks must post prices across many venues. For example, lets ...

Been playing on demo and so far so good, anyone using a VT account with real money at forex.com yet and can report back?
- ForexSooth replied Jun 10, 2011
Took forever - but YES!!! I can use VT again. url

I have to say - looking at this report makes me think the best option for a trader like me (usually around 1-2k account balance) is one of the big market makers. Oanda, GFT, Forex.com. It really looks like the cyprus and russia based market makers ...

I still cant believe that people don't understand that you can open a company in any of these places, call it a fx broker, get some fake license, convince a company like FXCM or forex.com to let you be a whitelabel partner, accept client funds etc., ...

I can't place SLs either. Frustrating. This is a pretty cool app though. Anyone able to?

Not sure, but most traders ive come across dont undertsnad that there really is no difference between a realized loss and a floating loss. Let's say i have a $20,000 account with 2 positions open, long EURUSD, one lot long at 1.4000 and one lot long ...

Anyone else having trouble getting onto their website?

Now I hear VT might be coming back soon for real trading with forex.com. anyone can confirm?
- ForexSooth replied Oct 11, 2010
Just heard from them that VT will still be around for us for demo trading and charting, but to place a trade we need to use forex.com's platform.

C'mon. That line has been in every NFA brokers account application for probably close to a decade. The cool thing here is this is foricng fcms to disclose how many accounts they have in their US branches, and how many of them make money. Im actually ...

From the looks of it, autochartist is pretty cool. It at least seems to save me time scanning the charts on my own for patterns. Obviously since its automated its not perfect - but why dont people seem to like it more?

Obviously the plugin can be used to hurt the trader - as Gain used it - and as is clearly outlined in the complaint. I know of some fx brokers that have their own internal rule that acceptable slippage must be equal in both directions. Just because ...
- ForexSooth replied Jul 2, 2010
If you read the full NFA complaint - even though their MT4 is in UK - they mention that Gain has thousands of US clients who opened accounts in the UK - and thats why the NFA is getting involved. Am I wrong to think the plugin isnt necessarily bad - ...

Taking price feeds from currenex doesnt mean jack. They dont say they send your order to currenex banks, they say they get their pricing from currenex. I could open a chopshop, get my feeds from currenex, and then bucket all the trades and stop hunt ...

I am going to repost part of my previous because I really am curious about the answer... Hi Justin - I have heard a lot that your net cap requirement would be higher than $20 mil if the NFA didn't think you were actually STP/ECN. Can you point to ...

Hi Justin - I have heard a lot that your net cap requirement would be higher than $20 mil if the NFA didn't think you were actually STP/ECN. Can you point to some documentation from the NFA that states this. My understanding is that your net cap ...

I always thought it would be really cool if a broker put the work in to make a contest where the winner wasnt just absolute highest return, but some measure of risk adjusted return looking at the max exposure each trader had during the contest, etc.
