Is it just me or did the spreads tighten up again?
I have recently become interested in the MB FIX gateway option.
I sent off a request for information with a view to opening a demo account, but so far all have received back is a rather vague question asking me what I want to use the FIX interface for...I would have though this was rather obvious. Anyway, I sent a reply explaining that I would like to use it for automated order placement (shocking!) and haven't heard anything since.
Is this the standard process? How long do these requests take? It just all seems a bit vague that's all.

DislikedI'm not sure that's what you meant
It is the lack of middleware in the FIX solution which is peaking my interest.
I already have ATS software, but at the moment it is connecting though TWS to IB, TWS is a pain (as are other aspects of IDEALPRO). Comparatively the MB FIX solution looks more elegant.Ignored
DislikedI came to conclusion that MBT isn't a ECN.
Before US session USD/JPY is 2 pips and mostly "fixed" spread - like an market maker or bucket shop.
Other ECN broker offer at same time tighter spreads + sub pips on their prices.
When US session opens, spreads surprisedly tighten.
It's like they manipulate data price and switch from market makers to some "real" bank price feeds.
I wouldn't trust them.Ignored
DislikedI'd just thought I'd throw in my experience with the SDK....Ignored
