Fixed Spread Account at Hotforex. Is It Possible?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Just wanted to ask you a broker-related question.

I'm messed up with calculating my trading costs with floating and fixed spreads on HF accounts but what I really need to know does fixed spread account also rules out slippage? Or I will still be getting affected with it?

thanks.

isn't this something you would ask about at HF or in HF forum ?

btw... any time your orders 'coincidentally' line up just right with bid or ask movements, they can slip you as much as they want.

Well I thought any thoughts, ideas or questions related to forex trading are permitted to post here.. That's why I asked if any of you tested this account or similar with other broker and can share his thoughts on how good is it from the point of trading

mist,

 

My post was certainly not intended to discourage enquiry or replies. Simply, I noted low probability of answers coming from this forum and attempted to suggest other paths to take to get the info you need.

 

It’s probably a good question. I’ve noticed across the years the higher the quality of a trading questions on forums the lower the quality and quantity of answers. The very best questions receive no replies at all.

 

If it were me, I would go on their site and do the math comparing costs of spread markups vs commisionfixed. ... and...

 

I would not pay any attention to testimonials period - because those giving positive testimonials probably had never been in a ‘messy situation’ with orders and if they did, were in the tiny % that was just plain got lucky... ie if a trader gets into 4 or 5 order ‘messes’ a month, it’s almost guaranteed no positive testimonials are ever coming out of that trader - even if the brokerage’s services are as good as anywhere else.

How tf would I know these things? :rofl: (answer includes... I been in the brokerage business, studied my clients...)

Plus many of those with negative testimonials usually had plenty of time to fix/move the dam order and didn’t.

How tf would I know these things? :rofl: (answer includes I have never been screwed by a broker and I have never made an order mistrake)

btw Anal75 was just talking about this stuff at http://www.traderslaboratory.com/forums/trading-psychology/20703-how-you-see-world-has-significant.html#post207815

 

Wishing you all the best,

Well thanks for well-reasoned reply, the point is I'm constantly in a search for shortcuts in my trading (and in my life too) so I used to bank on somebody others' experience, providing he's been looking for same things (set same goals) and got some results. Verifying testimonials and filtering out genuine and useful guidance is the second part of the deal. Which of course is also subject to hot debate.

    • Date : 23rd August 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 23rd August 2019.FX News Today A confluence of factors whipped the markets around Thursday heading into the Jackson Hole Symposium and Chair Powell’s comments Friday at 10 ET. Hawkish remarks from George (she dissented against the July easing) and Harker (who votes in 2020) weighed on Treasuries and erased early gains from Wall Street. Minutes from both Fed and ECB meetings were not quite the all out dovish signal that some had been hoping for and comments from Fed members yesterday also showed a degree of caution with regard to further easing measures. The curve in the US steepened again after inverting briefly overnight, the curve flattened and inverted further in Japan. Stock markets across Asia moved mostly higher although gains remained contained by caution. New Zealand’s central bank governor said he could afford to wait before declining on additional easing measures. Onshore Yuan set at its weakest for 11 years. Japanese core consumer inflation at a 2-year low in July. Meanwhile lingering geopolitical trade tensions and political jitters in Hong Kong, Italy and the UK add to an uncertain backdrop. US futures are also cautiously moving higher. The WTI future is trading at USD 55.37 per barrel. Charts of the DayTechnician’s Corner EURUSD returned to 3-week lows of 1.1064 today, after rallying to session highs of 1.1099 following the sub-50 US manufacturing PMI. Negative European yields appear to be taking their toll on the currency, keeping the Dollar in demand in place for relatively high yielding US Treasuries. This has likely been a major factor keeping EURUSD under pressure, especially ahead of likely ECB easing in September, and perceptions that the Fed will not be as aggressive in easing as previously thought. Key EURUSD level is the 27-month low of 1.1027 seen on August 1. USDJPY rallied to 106.64 highs. The risk-sensitive pairing can be expected to consolidate into today’s much anticipated speech from Fed chair Powell, from Jackson Hole. GBPUSD: Sterling had its best single day rally since March 13 against the Dollar. Cable’s high was 1.2273, which is the loftiest level seen since late July. The gains were sparked by comments made by German’s Merkel, who indicated that a solution to the Irish border backstop conundrum is doable by the October-31 Brexit deadline. UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson followed this up by saying at his joint press conference with France’s Macron that he was encouraged by his talks in Berlin yesterday, and that a deal, he thinks, can be done ahead of October 31. Macron, said, however, that while he has always respected the UK’s decision to leave the EU, the European project has to be protected, to which the Irish backstop remains an important part of ensuring this. Merkel’s remarks were little more than rhetorical platitudes, though enough to trigger a short squeeze in a heavy shorted currency. Main Macro Events Today   Jackson Hole Symposium – Day 2 Retail Sales ex Autos (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Retail sales are expected to have decreased in Canada, with consensus forecasts suggesting a -0.5% m/m decline should be registered in June and an unchanged ex-autos component at 0.3%. In May, Retail sales were disappointing, falling 0.1% for total sales and declining 0.3% for the ex-autos component. The decline in sales was driven by a 2.0% tumble in food and beverage stores. The report casts some doubt on the resiliency of the consumer sector to the ongoing parade of worrisome geopolitical and trade developments.
