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.

If you ever had a chance to see MT4 Dealers terminal you will be shocked to see that this can also be happen in our account ?

 

Its beyond Imagination. MT4 is always a DEALER Friendly software :) and it is less friendly at the clients end.

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.

    • GBPJPY: Bullish, Set To Close In On The 150.00 Area GBPJPY: The cross rallied strongly on Thursday opening the door for more price gain in the days ahead. On the downside, support comes in at the 149.00 level where a violation will aim at the 148.50 level. A break below here will target the 148.00 level followed by the 147.50 level. Conversely, resistance is seen at the 149.50 level followed by the 150.00 level. A cut through that level will set the stage for a move further higher towards the 150.50 level. Further out, resistance resides at the 151.50 level. Its daily RSI is pointing higher suggesting further upside pressure. All in all, GBPJPY faces further upside pressure.

    • Advice for beginners omg       First "invest" trade a little with real money and see whats your results are, then learn, learn and learn what trading methods are appropriate to you, then when you know what you need to work on then start paper trading / structured practice sessions  ... and btw, you're likely better off never seeking 'confidence'.  Most traders do not need to "establish your confidence".  ie For most traders, confidence leads to mistakes in risk.   Generally speaking, any 'confidence' applied before having traded for ~ 5 years is wasted and costly... If you do need 'confidence' and don't have any , then use what courage you have ...
