DislikedI used to trade with ECN too. Major disappointment. Commissions, market order slippage an stop order slippage...
I'm trading wiht FxPro now and I'm happy with them. I reg my account with introducer of fxpro and I receive $2 cashback per lot traded (they offer up to $4).
got burned with ECNs as well.
NOW, what is the very major thing about ECN - do you really trade with DB or any other major player??? NO, absolutely not. Our pennies are stuck in the same pool, the only diff between the two systems is that one shows you the depth, another one - doesnt.
and frankly, i really like Fxpro's openness to the fact that they are MM and they describe situation just the way it is. very rare with other golden-mountains-promises coming from other brokers.
anyway, would stick to the discussion of the particular fxpro advantages/disadvantages rather then general discussion what is better. what is good for me might not be as good for you..
