Alpari Direct Pro （currenex）platform offers 0% Commission until January 20th, 2010. Does anyone have experience with it？ I think it might widen spreads just like other currenex platforms

DislikedECN my ass. that plus a com on top... man that must be the worst currenex feed they could get!
it's a shame people they're still marking up the spreads.
pic is of Interactive Brokers spreads, yes peeps that's 2 pips on the GBP/JPY and look at the spread on the GBP/AUD
I can't under stand why people trade with these jokers.Ignored
Dislikedthere spreads look like they added a pip or 2 to them. BTW you can't compare IB spreads with any other ECN, IB has the best spreads and comm in the business, right now im trading on currenex and my average spread on gbp/usd is 1.1 witch is not bad.Ignored
DislikedExecution on ent/exit is great on limit and at market, I do all my trading through book trader it's a great tool!Ignored
Dislikedgbp/usd average spread on IB is about 1.5（Europe session，maybe less ），what is your currenex platform？commission？but why not choose IB?Ignored
Dislikedi can't stand IB platform, spreads are about the same as yours, i think IB comm is much cheaper then mines, im paying $35 per mill, i also like leverage and im getting 100:1Ignored
DislikedAlso, on booktrader you see the liquidity so if you trade liquidity that exists in booktrader, there by definition can't be any slippage.Ignored
Disliked(I of course don't know how massive positions you trade but at normal conditions the liquidity should be enough)
DislikedI personally have nothing bad to say about ib's execution. They also have some order types like LIT (limit if touched) where you have total control of the execution on stop-like orders.
