AAAFX Forex Broker

Recommended Posts

AAAFX is a rather new broker, mainly associated with zulutrade.

I have a micro live account with them, because i wanted to see how it works with zulu, since they claim they are directly integrated with them and there is minimal slippage.

 

I have to say that so far most things go well. Slippage is low, the most ive seen is 2pips on some news trades, spreads are around 2.5pips on majors. And there is no extra commission for connecting to zulutrade.

I will update this thread.

If anyone has more experience with this broker, please share.

Hi, no personal experience with them, but im a zulutrade user and zulu seems to promote them more than other brokers.

So i was also wondering if its worth switching with them? Do they make a difference with the big brokers, eg FXCM, FXDD etc?

blink, how has it been going with AAAfx and Zulutrade these past weeks? I've been running demo on ZT for a few weeks, and I'm looking for the best broker to use for a live account.

 

I'm based in the US. Are you?

 

Thanks!

Hi!

Im very careful and conservative in my trading, my main concern was if I would have high slippage or connection problems. So far I have a slippage of max 2 pips and no disconnections so far. My provider is doing around 3 trades/day, i think this is enough to keep my balance safe.

Im located in Czech Republic, but I think AAAFX also accept US residents...i dont know you may have to ask them first :)

Ive asked them and they said they will still accept US accounts despite the CFTC regulation, with 200:1 leverage and hedging.

As far as performance, my account is slowly growing, not something impressive, but as I said im trading very conservatively

Its funny that they have many addresses like aaafx.it, aaafx.de, aaafx.us but no so many translations :)

Hi

I have Live account from 4 months on AAAFx.co.uk. Previously I had an accounts at InterbankFx, Oanda and FxPro.

Generally I'm positive surprised with this broker. The spread on EUR/USD is a little big (generally 1,8-3 ) but on the other pairs its quite good ( GBP/USD is around 3 pips, GBP/JPY around 4-5 pips). By this time I made 380 transaction and have no one requotes (but sometimes on heavy movements ,but very rare , the open price is lover/higher (about 10 pips) then in moment when I was sending orders). Even in this situations that is much better then to have many requotes (as it was with InterbankFx or Oanda and now often with FxPro). Through this fast movements the spreads are not so match wider on AAAFx.co.uk account than it was with Oanda and Interbank. FxPro was very good at the beginning but now is much worse (I hope that AAAFx.co.uk don't plan to go the same way).

I found this broker (AAAFx.co.uk) as a good propositions to start on forex market (for more experienced users it can be a little low number of instruments - without indexes, futures, metals and so on). For beginners and this people ho don't have a time to search the good possibilities to open the positions themselves it can be interesting connection with Zulutreade.com - this broker don't make You spread wider after connection (as is with other brokers). But always You must remember about Money Management and control the positions - on Zulutreade.com providers are only a people (with all advantages and disadvantages)

    • Date : 21st September 2020. Events to Look Out for This Week.     After an exciting week, the markets continue to digest central bank decisions while waiting for a fresh catalyst. Rising virus infections around the world remain in focus as there is the fear that the equality of hospitalization and deaths will change if the virus spreads from young holiday markets to older generations, and with restrictions ramped up again there is concern that economic activity will be hit again. Meanwhile US-China tensions and no-trade deal Brexit is back in play after BoE was briefed on negative rates. Markets will also be guided by hard economic data.   Monday – 21 September 2020   Inflation Report Hearings (GBP, GMT N/A) –The BOE Governor and several MPC members testify on inflation and the economic outlook before Parliament’s Treasury Committee. Tuesday – 22 September 2020   RBA’s Debelle, BoE’s Governor Bailey and Fed Chair’s Powell speech Wednesday – 23 September 2020   Interest Rate Decision & Policy Report (NZD, GMT 02:00) – The Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) is widely expected to keep the OCR (Official Cash Rate) at the current record low 0.25%. RBNZ Governor Orr, speaking in the first week of September, stressed again that the central bank is actively preparing a new package of measures to implement if necessary. That could include negative wholesale interest rates, further quantitative easing and direct lending to banks. The RBNZ is in the low-for-longer whatever-it-takes boat with the bulk of the world’s central banks. Markit Services and Composite PMIs (EUR, GMT 07:30-08:00) – The prelim. EU Markit PMI Indices are expected to continue above 50, but slightly decline on Services, which could result in a composite PMI for September at 51.6 from 51.7. Markit Services and Composite PMIs (GBP, GMT 08:30) – The prelim. UK Markit Service PMI Indices is expected to have improved in September to 59.5. The ongoing recovery in the service sector could continue to be the dominant upward driver of the composite figure. The government’s ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ scheme is behind the so far strength in activity. Markit Services and Composite PMIs (USD, GMT 13:45) – The prelim. US Markit Service PMI for September is seen lower at 54.9, after the 55.0 in the final read for August. In August the composite index dipped to 54.6 in the final version versus the 54.7 preliminary, though it’s up from July’s 50.3. Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes (JPY, GMT 23:50) – The BOJ minutes, similar to the ECB Reports, provide a detailed assessment of the bank’s most recent policy-setting meeting, containing in-depth insights into the economic conditions that influenced the rate decision. They are usually a cause for FX turbulence. Thursday – 24 September 2020   Interest Rate Decision & Policy Report (CHF, GMT 07:30) – The influence of the SNB’s intervening hand may have been in play this month. Total Swiss sight deposits of Francs have risen by 130 bln since the pandemic and consequential lockdowns took a grip on global markets back in March. Sight deposits can be viewed as a proxy marker of SNB intervention to sell Francs in forex markets (after buying foreign currencies), which results in the crediting of newly created Francs in commercial banks sight accounts. The rise in sight deposits also reflects SNB operations to boost liquidity via the COVID-19 refinancing facility. The advent of the EU’s recovery fund (a new liquid AAA fund that also reduces Eurozone breakup risks), seen as a milestone by many analysts, has by many accounts caused a re-weighting of the common currency in portfolios, which will help the SNB combat what it sees as a chronically overvalued Franc. The SNB would like to step out of the negative interest rate policy sooner rather than later, but with the world economy still in the grip of Covid-19 and data releases highlighting the fallout from the crisis, there is little the central bank can do if it wants to keep the currency under control. German IFO (EUR, GMT 08:00) – German IFO business confidence is expected to rise to 94 from 92.6 in August. Jobless Claims (USD, GMT 12:30)– US initial jobless claims fell -33k to 860k in the week ended September 12 after a revised 893k print in the September 5 week. This is the fourth reading with claims below 1 mln since the surge in the March 20 week. BoE’s Governor Bailey speech (GBP, GMT 14:00) Friday – 25 September 2020   Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – Durable goods orders are expected to rise 2.0% in August with a 3.1% climb in transportation orders, after an 11.4% headline orders climb in July that included a 35.7% transportation orders surge. The durable orders rise ex-transportation is pegged at 1.5%. Defense orders are pegged at 0.9%, following a 33.4% July pop. Boeing orders rose to 8 planes from zero orders in July. The vehicle assembly rate should improve to 12.1 mln from 11.9 mln units in July, versus a 0.1 mln trough in April. Durable shipments should rise 2.5%, and inventories should fall -0.6%.

    • Without a proper trading plan, forex trading is much similar to throwing the darts in the dark.
    • I had participated in a demo contest but there were too many experienced traders before me..
    • MetaTrader 4 is a platform, which was specifically designed for FX trading. As retail Forex is a relatively new industry, it did not have reliable third party software available until MetaTrader 4 appeared. These are just a few of the benefits of MetaTrader 4. One of its strongest selling points is its stability. You can really count on this platform. In addition to this, it is also supplied with a powerful set of mobile apps. These applications are available for nearly any type of operating system, including iOS, Android, and Windows. Needless to say, these mobile platforms are also very stable and powerful. The LMFX MT4 Platform gives you easy access to fast trade execution, deep liquidity and the highly intuitive, powerful interface that has made MetaTrader 4 the most popular trading platform in the world.
    • You are free to make your own decisions without having to find a way to explain the rationale of your decisions to anybody else. Your time and effort can be focused on what the market is doing and how you react to it, instead of worrying about the psychological and emotional dynamics of a trading group. You are free to experiment, based on the knowledge you gain from your experiences and your self-education, without having to asking others to allocate a certain portion of the trading funds to let you conduct your experiments. No one can blame you for their failures. No time is wasted on justifying your actions or feeling guilty about the impact of your trading blunders on someone else's financial situation. You alone are responsible and accountable for your own success or failure. You cannot shift the blame to anybody else. It could be disappointing to some knowing that they cannot blame anyone else if they fail. For others, it is very empowering to know that they, and they alone, are in charge of their own destiny.
