In essence I believe in finding the right broker. What tends to happen with me is that I trade off technical info being mindful of openings and closings and fundamental news. Despite this I still affect global markets, as generally all the trades i take makes that indices or currency pair literally stop and immediately reverse on my charts. I get locked in battle with the broker in the Capital spread and slippage death spiral. "Quite frankly not believing my "death spiral""Re: I see more opportunity with a 1:100 broker as opposed to 1:500 the set up is the same. It is true that if both brokers I used were 1:100 the result may have been similar , between Pepperstone and another broker. I think one needs to find a proper Market Maker i.e: 0.0001 = pip as opposed to points. I will save up thousands, and have dealt with GCI in the past . I think stay clear of Metatrader and anything with a Russian language flag.
