DislikedYeah, way too much in fees taking the Credit Card > Moneybookers > Armada route.
You can't deposit via Credit Card directly to Armada, they force you to go through MB which sucks because depositing to MB comes with % fees (not to mention the limitations) and then depositing from MB to Armada involves ANOTHER % fee.
For a $5000 deposit you end up paying like $200 just for a stupid deposit.
I'm sure with a profitable strategy, the client can make this back in weeks if not days. Focus more on the opportunity to sit at the table with a profitable strategy. Don't worry too much about fees in this sense; start trading the account up.
I do know that vantagefx has a local deposit option for many countries for deposits and withdraws. This saves big on wire deposits (and restrictions). I think GoMarkets will have it soon InstaForex has it but only a few countries (Thailand, Malaysia, etc).
