Metatrader Vs Currenex

Recommended Posts

Was having a discussion with some people from Alpari, one of the forex brokers out there who is growing their U.S. presence. They were talking about the two different ways you can open/fund your account - one would trade through the Metatrader platform, more of the retail variety, and the other would use a pro platform Currenex.

 

It was interesting, because they actually felt up to a certain size, I think about 10 - 15 full size, which is actually quite sizable you'd be better off on the retail platform with the fixed spreads and executions since they rarely see requotes, etc... as long as it stays that size or lower. Perhaps if it extends beyond that the Currenex which goes more directly to a bank feed than a trade desk would be better.

 

Curious if there are any of you who have tried both varieties and have some feedback. I have some experience talking to some money managers who have used Currenex and there are some pros/cons but wondering if anybody else wants to weigh in on that.

 

Thanks.

I had the same dilemma few months ago. I opened a regular account with sunbird fx (mt4) and things were great-no requotes and fast executions. I read somewhere that currenex was much better and recommended, so I opened an account there. The result was that I saw no difference in the performance aspect, but currenex cost much more. In the bottom line, I could not see the advantage of trading via currenex.

There is not much of a difference between mt4 and currenex. Mt4 is a great platform and currenex is just too expensive ! I trade with mt4 but I try to make sure that it works with market execution and not instant execution.

There is no difference between MT4 and Currenex on the clients point of view. Mt4 or Currenex both will do accordingly what the software are told to do. Currenex is expensive but it has less dealer intervention and manipulation feature but mt4 have more features to manipulate the prices as done by worlds biggest Market Makers as well.

 

They all prefer Mt4 as it can be customized more easily then any other software do and it can manipulate prices they way they want to.

There is a big difference between Currenex and MT4. Limit orders placed on MT4 are always kept on Metaquote server as opposed to being directed to the liquidity pools. When the market reaches your limit price, your order is triggered as a market order which could be a gap. I have an account with Ajax Financial and though they are one of the cleanest out there, they couldn't overcome this challenge, which is caused by MetaQuote, the end result, I had to switch my account to their Currenex.

    • Very long time since I made last post. Thought about posting one chart. Stock name is masked intentionally as I am having position. My views may be biased. My way of viewing chart. Chart is self explanatory
    • Litecoin Price Prediction Today: Daily (LTC) Value Forecast – July 18   LTC/USD Medium-term Trend: Bearish ·         Resistance Levels: $100, $110, $120 ·         Support levels: $90, $80, $70 Yesterday, July 17, the price of Litecoin was in a bullish trend. On July 16, the downward correction ended at the price of $80 price level. The $80 support level was the previous low of April 11 and May 6. The support level is holding as the bulls made an upward move towards the EMAs. On the upside, if the bulls break above the 12-day EMA and the 26-day EMA, the crypto’s price will rise and retest the $140 overhead resistance level. However, the bulls are likely to face resistance at the $120 price level.The MACD line and the signal line are below the zero line which indicates a sell signal.     LTC/USD Short-term Trend: Bullish On the 1-hour chart, the LTC price is in a bullish trend. The 12-day EMA and the 26-day EMA are trending upward because the price has commenced an upward movement. On July 16, in the downtrend, the bears reached a low of $76 but pulled back above the $80 price level.   Yesterday, the bulls broke above the EMAs and commenced ranging below the $94 price level. Today the bulls have broken the $94 resistance level and  are approaching the high of $100.The MACD line and the signal line are above the zero line which indicates a buy signal.     The views and opinions expressed here do not reflect that of BitcoinExchangeGuide.com and do not constitute financial advice.

    • CRUDE OIL Corrective Pullback Mode Remains    CRUDE OIL corrective pullback mode remains as more decline is likely in the days ahead. Support lies at the 56.50 level where a break will expose the 56.00 level. A cut through here will set the stage for a run at the 55.50 level. Further down, support comes in at the 55.00 level. Its daily RSI is a bearish and pointing lower suggesting further weakness. On the upside, resistance resides at the 57.50 levels. Further out, resistance comes in at the 58.00 level. A break above here will aim at the 58.50 level and then the 59.00 level followed by the 59.50.00 level. All in all, CRUDE OIL remains biased to the downside nearer term on pullback.  
    • I had used binance and hotforex, first one for bitcoin to altcoins and the second one for EURUSD and they also added BTCUSD and BTCEUR pair too.
