Forex Broker

It depends what do you need a broker for :

demo, live?

Are you a scaler,, a swing trader?

Do you want a ECN account, a classical one ?

Do yu wish it to be FCA regulated or not?

 

 

I am using a Tickmill ECN account on demo to check them before going live, and so far so good : spreads are ok, service is reliable, so I am happy with it. But that's just my point of view.

Yeah that's a great broker both for newbies and trading experts. Have been using them since 2012, their low trading costs make their platform perfect for scalping.

Your broker choice should be based on your needs: if you are looking for a registered or non registered broker, the kind of accounts they offer (micro lots account included), their spreads and leverages, withdrawal methods, minimum size per trade….There is a huge list of things you should look at before choosing your broker.

Oanda and FXCM both have solid reputations. Interactive Brokers is also highly recommended by bigger traders.

 

Oanda has larger spreads, but very good data and solid execution. It's hard to find good charting software to use with them, though (I just started using MotiveWave, which can hook up to Oanda). I currently use Oanda and would recommend them to anyone who wants to learn to trade, since they do not have a minimum lot size or minimum deposit. This makes it really easy for a beginner to practice without losing more than a few cents per trade, if they really wanted to do that. Where else can you place a trade of 100 units or something ridiculously small?

 

However, with FXCM you can get extremely tight spreads (some of the best I've seen). For that, you do have to pay commission. If you trade 1 lot of the EUR/USD, for example, your spread may only be between .2 and .5 of a pip, but you'll have to pay $8 roundtrip commission for this spread. You can use a lot of different platforms with FXCM, such as Sierra Chart, NinjaTrader, MotiveWave, etc.

Why trade with relatively unknown brokers when you have well-established firms available to you?

Well established? Could you tell me more about them? What do you think about Hotforex, can we consider them well-known?

Thanks in advance for your reply.

Hello there! can anyone reccommend me a good forex broker?

 

there's lot of good broker outthere, you can simply visit any brokers page comparison website like myfxbook. but make sure the trading condition are match your trading method. most used are brokers with scalping capability, and for these method I suggest to narrow your search among ecn broker type. I've been spread out my account as investment diversity, depend on current trading system used ( mostly EA). as for scalping upon ECN account I use Tickmill brokerage service, and I also registed my account under some rebate service and use it for coverage my vps expense :).

ouch, not a good start, hopefully its nothing major, do keep us updated on how it goes.. late withdrawals is not a good sign, but i hope its just the bank.

 

After a slow start with the accounting team (over 24hrs to respond) things did speed up and looks like the company they use for bank transfers (envoy) somehow lost it, they are now in the process of retrieving the money back to my account.

could these related to their sudden policy during Greek Saga (temporary shrink the leverage 1:50 ), I don't have an account with them yet just saw their representative post at FF. and that's makes me bit worry and right away ask Tickmill support where my account with, did they applied same rule upon Greek referendum vote, and luckily they doesn't change any trading rule related to Greek event. how is it going with your withdrawal process, I hope it wont take to much time to process :missy:

There are no reported cases about brokers suffered from Greek crisis (I mean abnormal market movements caused by Greek crisis). Don't know what's happened with FxPro receive payments from Hotforex without any delays:)

I've tried Tradestation and Ninjatrader too, but what I can certainly say that tradestation fees and Ninjatrader lack of good charting features put them one step behind the MT4 with it's obsolete design and unusual bugs. I'd recommend to stick with MT4 best platform I've tested so far.

What are the advantages of tradestation over MT4? Even institutional traders trade with MT4 platforms. I think it all depends on the broker.

 

Are you serious with this post? Name one institution that trades with MT4. MT4 is a joke that is used by beginner forex traders for two reasons: 1) it is free, and 2) it is very simple to use. Institutions that are managing large amounts of money use custom platforms that are tailored for their needs, especially if these institutions are banks trading currencies with each other. MT4 doesn't even meet the standards to be called a serious retail trading platform. Comparing MT4 to something like Sierra Chart, Multicharts, Tradestation, etc., is like comparing a plastic tricycle to a Ferrari.

I am going to go ahead and call you out on this - if you really think MT4 is the "best platform" you've ever tested, you have only used MT4. Tradestation and Ninjatrader and others like Sierra Chart and Multicharts are used by a large amount of professional traders who trade various markets like futures, stocks, commodities, forex, etc. MT4 is simply used by beginner forex traders. I'm sorry, but MT4 is one of the worst trading platforms out there. You won't find any serious professional trader using MT4... if they are using MT4, they are usually a beginner still new to trading.

yeah there is a different between a popular platform and a good platform, mt4 is the most popular one even hotforex uses is, may ease of acquiring or simple because of all the possibilities that it has from add ons etc.

    • MASTER TRADER JOE ROSS PASSES ON Dear Traders, We are sad to inform you of the passing of Master Trader Joe Ross on the morning of Tuesday, September 7, 2021 at the age of 87. He went peacefully doing what he loved, by taking care of Loretta, his wife of 62 years of marriage and teaching his students from every continent how to trade. Joe has always been a free spirit and loved the trading world being his own boss. He quickly learned that teaching others was his true passion. The joy of educating those about a system in which he had true confidence and to see others come into their own. That was his greatest pleasure. He was proud to be a devoted Christian and combined spirituality with trading. Our condolences to our traders and students for the loss of a mentor and close friend, some would even go as far as saying a “father-figure” and he wore that title proudly. Master Trader Joe Ross’ passing came upon us unexpectedly and suddenly. Again, we would like to send our condolences to those who lost a mentor and a friend. Joe, you will forever be in our hearts. Who is Joe Ross? Joe Ross is the creator of the Ross hook™, and has set new standards for low-risk trading with his concepts of “The Law of Charts™” and the “Traders Trick Entry™.” Joe was a private trader and investor for much of his life, but a serious health situation in the late 80’s caused him to shift his focus, and that is when he decided to share his knowledge. After his recovery, he founded Trading Educators in 1988, to teach aspiring traders how to make profits using his trading approach. Joe Ross has written twelve major books and countless articles and essays about trading. All his books have become classics, and have been translated into many different languages. His students from around the world number in the thousands. His file of letters containing thanks and appreciation from students on every continent is huge: As one student, a successful trader, wrote: “Your mastery of teaching is even greater than my mastery of trading.” Joe Ross holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of California at Los Angeles. He did his Masters work in Computer Sciences at the George Washington University extension in Norfolk, Virginia. He is listed in “Who’s Who in America.” After 5 decades of trading and investing, Joe Ross still tutors, teaches, writes, and trades regularly. Joe is an active and integral part of Trading Educators. He is the founder and contributor of the company’s newsletter Chart Scan™. “Master Traders Joe Ross was one of the most eclectic traders in the world. And he remains one of the few best mentors I have, alongside, Dr. Van. K. Tharp (may he live long), and one or two others. His teachings and insights into the markets have contributed to making me who I am today. He also talks about the spiritual side of trading, concluding that trading is no sin.” – Azeez M. “The trading world has lost a unique and passionate trader. He explained to me that his material will never go out of date, only the technology. Recently, we updated several of his hardback books into eBooks and he was right. From making trades over the phone to the “pit” then to opening an online account, my how things have changed. But he is correct about his methods, they will continue to apply to the markets regardless of how technolgy advances.” – Martha Ross-Edmunds (Joe’s daughter) Joe Ross’ Trading Philosophy: “Teach our students the truth in trading — teach them how to trade,” and “Give them a way to earn while they learn — realizing that it takes time to develop a successful trader.”   IN MEMORIAM: Joe Ross (RIP)   Source: https://learn2.trade   
    • BITCOIN PRICE ANALYSIS: LONG-TERM HOLDERS REMAIN UNSHAKEN BY PRICE ACTIONBITCOIN PRICE ANALYSIS: LONG-TERM HOLDERS REMAIN UNSHAKEN BY PRICE ACTION Azeez Mustapha 14 October 2021 | Updated: 14 October 2021 New reports from Glassnode show that despite the recent price surge in Bitcoin (BTC), long-term holders have shown no intention to liquidate and realize profits yet. The blockchain analytics provider also revealed that the percentage of BTC supply held for at least three months reached 85%, a new all-time high. Citing data from Glassnode, famous Chinese crypto analyst Colin Wu illustrated the recent behavior of Bitcoin holders and their attitude towards the benchmark cryptocurrency. The analyst detailed that the percentage of long-term holders that have not moved their coins in over ten years stands at 12.3%. These tokens are deemed dormant for this reason. The analyst further noted that the percentage of long-term holders that have not transferred their coins between two to three years and three to five years stands at 10% and 12.26%, respectively. Finally, the highest percentage of long-term holders were those who have refused to move their coins between the last six months to twelve months, standing at 19.5%. That said, 85.14% of BTCs have not exchanged hands for at least three months, a new record high. In July, Bitcoin struggled to keep its head above the $30,000 mark. Today, it has almost doubled this number, but investors remain steadfast in holding their coins. Key Bitcoin Levels to Watch — October 14 As predicted in our previous analysis, BTC witnessed a sharp correction to the $55,000 – $54,000 pivot axis from the $57,500 level over the last 48 hours. This correction found immediate support from the $54,000 level, which triggered a rebound to a new five-month high at $58,500 earlier today. BTCUSD – 4-Hour Chart While the price currently rests around $57,500, we expect a bull run to the $59,000 resistance over the coming hours and days. Meanwhile, our resistance levels are at $58,000, $59,000, and $60,000, and our key support levels are at $56,700, $56,000, and $55,000.

    • Date : 15th October 2021. Market Update – October 15 – Stronger equities dampened the safe-havens! Q3 earnings season has gotten off to a strong start, with big banks largely shooting the lights out on revenues and earnings. Incoming data was constructive as well, with jobless claims coming in at pandemic lows, while the rate of PPI growth slowed. All 11 S&P sectors are higher. Bulls are in control, both in the bond market and on Wall Street. – Overlooked the hawkish Fed implications from the record strength in PPI and the lowest claims readings since before the pandemic. Yields declined and Treasuries are in the green on short covering and dip buying, recovering from the recent aggressive selloff. US Treasury yield has lifted 1.8 bp to 1.53%. China: will loosen restrictions on home loans and boost lending & bank added enough medium term funds to keep liquidity in the system steady. Equities up. JPN225 managed a 1.6% gain and US futures are also higher, led by a 0.4% rise in the USA100. Oil lifted above $81.99. – Prices quickly backed up after a larger than expected stock build in the US. Improved market sentiment, which has lifted global stocks, commodity prices and bond yields, is also weighing on the safe-haven Dollar. FX markets – USD dropped, Yen declined. EURUSD retests 1.1600 mark, Cable at 1.3689, USDJPY touched 114.16. European Open – The December 10-year Bund future is slightly higher, US Treasury futures slightly in the red, as stock futures move higher in both Europe and North America after a good session for equities across Asia overnight. Market sentiment improved and GER30 and UK100 futures are currently up 0.4% and 0.3% respectively, while a 0.4% rise in the USA100 is leading US futures. EGB yields had dropped back markedly yesterday, but in the UK money markets are still bracing for an earlier than expected lift off on rates, which ironically is actually helping long rates to come down. Today – Today’s data calendar is unlikely to change the overall picture, with only eurozone trade data for August and some final HICP readings on the agenda. Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) NZDJPY (+0.60%) Breached 80.55. Up for 7 days in a row. Currently faster MAs keep pointing up, MACD signal line is at 0 & histogram trending higher. RSI at 82 & Stochastic at 94 but both sloping down, all indicating further upwards move in the medium term but possible pullback in the short term. H1 ATR 0.123, Daily ATR 0.810.
