Sorry if this is a repeat. Oanda? IB? Also anyone tried futures brokers for red news?
At your peril. News trading is an absolute mess and generally unpredictable. Which good soul will deliver stable working feed to the retail floor during nfp or fed? Of course guys with speed edge occupy it. You of course at hunt for lucky fills, but till the first slippage that erase all your profits.
i tried news trading with Tickmill, global prime and hotforex and I admit it completely random success. Sometimes rigging from bank traders leave you behind monitor astounded with wide open eyes. How? How come?
me too in searching for broker that actually accept news trading. been trying few broker but their slippage is terrible. Been using tickmill, icmarket, fxpro, oanda, alpari, darwinex. So far,i only stay with tickmill and darwinex as their results still acceptable, though slippage still happen but there are times my pending is trigger not that far and still manage to see some profit. I am planning to try purple trading, as i heard their execution is good. But the minimal is usd 1000
Nice thread here From my own experience I had good results with Pepperstone , JFD Brokers and NSFX .
@ francisw never heard of purple trading, but can you share some results or impressions if you open an account with them?
