Sorry buddy but what you are saying is completely inaccurateIgnored
I was merely trying to point out that most retail traders are under the impression that when using an ECN they as trading individuals are trading directly on the market against banks etc. As your terms clearly state, this is not the case. The misunderstanding may be entirely the fault of the inexperienced individual, but nevertheless the misconception is still widespread. When the opening post asked if MB Trading was a real ECN, I got the impression they were asking whether you were involved in the trade in anyway or whether you were simply providing a bridge between the trader and the banks. Your terms and your post here explains the situation very well. You may well be an ECN but most retail traders completely miss the true meaning of that, particularly with US based brokers, as I believe the opening poster has.
