Hi Samuel,

 

I am in search of a good broker too...

I closed my account at Interactive Brokers because of their fees during inactivity in trading. But with their service and tradeable instruments I was highly satisfied.

I thaught of opening an account with TD Ameritrade because of their variety of tradeable insturments and they don´t have a maintainence fee.

I do not know which instruments you want to trade but a good start of the search for me was the Ninja Traders Brokerage Partner site:

NinjaTrader stock, futures and forex charting software and online trading platform. NinjaTrader Partners.

 

Hope this was helpful

All IBs are pretty much the same. And don't confuse Interactive Brokers the brand with Interactive Brokers the type of brokers. For example Mirus and Infinity are both IBs/ Interactive Brokers.

 

Are you a member? That makes a difference. Are you a big size trader? That makes a difference too. A good broker for me may not be the a good broker for you. If you are a small trader with a small account and are not a member then chances are there will be very little difference in IBs. Interactive Brokers actually being the worst broker of all the interactive brokers.

Mirus is a good Introducing Broker.

 

Besides trading 6E beats EUR/USD in leverage and in commissions.

 

I use Mirus. They are good. However they have a recent policy that is something like if you don't make 10 or 25 round turns a month then you are charged 25 bucks. That isn't a problem with me but it could be for someone who is unsure or just starting out and might need more then 90 days of market data. Figured I would throw that out there. Again I do use them.

How everyone - I wanted to add a little something with you guys - I have found that trying out a company - the best way to do so is through their demo account - your money is not invested - and at the same time you can see what type of support system they provide - what their spreads looks like - but do keep in mind that all demo accounts are a mixture of VIP and CLassic Accounts and they tend to be slightly late in accordance to the market view NOW!!! I have tried many demo accounts but so far - tradingforex is my favorite - try it out!!! I have ended opening a live account with them. :missy:

Oh that is too bad. I thought you might of been a trader. :(

 

Oh well.

 

Yea good luck with finding a broker. Good brokers don't play games.

 

Maybe try that app on Facebook. Its called "Hotshot Trader." Or you can try following that scam artist FT71. He plays games. Or maybe just bag trading games and go get an Xbox 360 if you don't have one already. Lots of games on that thing.

 

Have Fun!!!!

I think the only place you can enjoy forex like a game is at trade1on1. It offers 1on1 games and tournament. It is a very nice website. It is totally different from others stated in their post.

 

Make sure you start with a demo account. Please don't confuse -It is not a brokerage but is skill game platform. Hope you will enjoy forex there:cool:

A very important aspect to consider when choosing a broker, trading platform is offered. All online brokers allow users to operate in the market easily through a trading platform, an application serves as a connection between the operator and the broker.

The selection of a good broker is very much essential for you to earn more and more profit. I have been in Forex Trading since 5 years and have lose much money previously with my previous brokers. But as and when I have selected my current broker I have earned a lot and I am still earning.

Regulated as well as reputed brokers , i guess, to trade with.. as there are many past examples where even regulated brokers turned into scam taking away all their traders money.

what do you guys mean by regular? or was it regulated? there are many regulated brokers out there by different body all over the world. but choosing the good ones can be difficult, maybe one can narrow them down by simply avoiding sketchy new brokers, and unregulated ones if uncertain. for example i trade mainly with hotforex for the past 6 years regulated by multiple bodies, from saint vincent, cysec and sout africa regulatories which is fairly good. but setting that aside the broker delivers and thats what matters right?

Regulation is key, some of the best which come to mind are ASIC from Austalia and FCA from the UK. To be honest I would rather my broker has 1 regulator in my opinion.

 

On the topic of fund safety, make sure the broker has a reliable history. Has anyone been following FXCM recently?

" Its shareholders have lost 98% of their investment since January 2015. Its parent company, Global Brokerage, Inc.,[4] has expressed "substantial doubt about [its] ability to continue as a going concern."

That's a quote. Crazy stuff! Also for funds make sure the funds sit in a safe country. Too many have there funds sitting in Cyprus and all. I'd rather my money in a more stronger economy in case anything happens.

 

I think above else what you should look at is if the broker is A-block or B-block, or perhaps some hybrid model. You don't want the broker hedging against you. If they are then they are not necessarily working in your interests.

 

So for a 'good' broker first and foremost a good regulator, make sure it has a strong performance history, and that the funds are in a 'safer' country.

In terms of trading with them and following their analyst reports you must be very careful that they don't hedge against you.

 

What are all your thoughts? Did I miss anything? It took a bit of looking around but now I know I'm with the right broker

    • Brexit Aftermath: The Market Reaction Of Bitcoin, Gold And Pound Sterling To Headline News In The EURO Zone   After the UK made it public to exit from the EURO bloc, the market cap for Bitcoin and Gold has increased almost by $133 billion and $1 trillion. Is this the Brexit aftermath?   As it is, the end may be near for Brexit. In the recent declaration an accord is reached between the British government and the EU, everyone is on the lookout for the final date Brexit will conclude. And based on this scenario, an analysis is drawn on the aftermath of this separation in the politics of the EURO bloc and the effect on the price of Bitcoin, Gold and pound sterling.   Bitcoin: Since the start of Brexit, Bitcoin’s market cap had spiked higher and recovered about $10 billion worth. Before Brexit, the cryptocurrency of the first choice had been stable in price after crashing to a market cap of about $2.9 billion low around January 2015. However, after the crash, the cryptocurrency had spiked to about 300% within 18 months while the next super halving of the project is expected on the network from 25 to 12.5 fresh Bitcoin’s per 10 minutes.   As of mid-2016, the most liquid GBP market was the London based Coinfloor exchange. The exchange did around 772 Bitcoins’ worth of volume that day, valued back then at around $4.9 million, with data from the technical back end at the Trading view.   The Pound Sterling: The British national currency had crashed by almost 20% on the night of the vote after hitting a momentary high of about $1.5 versus the USD for about 8 months. Since crashing to a low of about $1.2 as at March 2017, the Pound sterling had rallied 6% within a 4-week time frame, after the UK parliament decided to vote and activate the Article 50 while then the Brexit journey began for the UK taking it two years to discuss its planned exit from the EURO bloc.     Gold: The safe-haven asset also spiked higher around the same time frame from mid-March to mid-April 2017 with its price rising about 7% versus the USD. Nevertheless, this scenario didn’t play out on Bitcoin as in March 2017, beginning with its price at $1000, Bitcoin had surged to hit an all-time value of about $1300, as a result of markets expectation for a Bitcoin ETF being endorsed. However, after its nullification was declared on 10th March 2017, the cryptocurrency fell to a low of about $888 which occurred concurrently with the UK’s law passage for its exit from EURO bloc. Ever since then as the UK’s Brexit discussions with the EU raged on, so did the Pound against the US-dollar and Bitcoin gained more to its price.   Bitcoin, Gold, and Pound Sterling Reactions to Brexit During this timeframe transversing Brexit discussion and its process, the Pound lost the majority of its 15% gains recovered, to tumble from a high of $1.43 to hit $1.20 on 3 September. In a similar multi-day timeframe, gold broke out of its basic $1400 resistance level to rally 15% versus the US-dollar. While Bitcoin gained higher, then again, stayed on the level around $8,000—yet the genuine story of those 17 months incorporates the cryptocurrency crashing towards $3,000 (December 2018) preceding the move spiking to a high of almost $14,000 in June this year.   Source: https://learn2.trade     
    • Despite Running To The Highest Close In Six Months, GBPUSD May Fail To Reverse   GBPUSD Price Analysis – October 20 The GBPUSD had closed on Friday above its opening price after recovering from early selling pressure and trending higher for the 4th day consecutively in a row. After failing to reverse from its highs, the FX pair is unstable and due to weekend UK parliament vote on Brexit, with this scenario, the pair is likely to gap while it reopens on Monday morning in Asia (Sunday evening in the US).   Key Levels Resistance Levels: 1.3301, 1.3185, 1.2988   Support Levels: 1.2582, 1.2204, 1.1958   GBPUSD Long term Trend: Bullish On the daily picture, the bulls took charge in the previous session and exited the day above its opening price, however, the pair failed to move past the prior’s day’s trading range and the price likewise failed to reverse below the previous day’s range.   The GBPUSD had rallied upwards to as high as the level at 1.2988 last week, before forming a temporary top there. In the case of a reverse, the fall may be contained by the level at 1.2582 resistance turned support to bring rise resumption.     GBPUSD Short term Trend: Bullish An impermanent top is structured on the level at 1.2988 and intraday bias in GBPUSD stays on the upside. A few consolidations may be seen. Be that as it may, any pullback ought to be contained above the level at 1.2582 support to bring rise resumption.   Meanwhile, on the upside, a break of the level at 1.2988 will stretch out the recovery from the level at 1.1958 to 1.2582 from 1.2204 at 1.3185 next. Without bias analysis, the outlook is bullish and displaying an intact uptrend in the short and long-term.   Source: https://learn2.trade

As expected readings would result in a y/y loss of 0.3% for headline PPI, versus a 0.3% pace for August. Tuesday – 22 October 2019   Retail Sales (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Canadian sales are expected to have increased by 0.6% m/m in August compared to 0.4% m/m in July, with the ex-autos component down -0.3%. Existing Home Sales (USD, GMT 14:00) – Home sales have regained their status as an important indicator after the financial crisis and can have a strong effect on the markets. The release is expected to record a slight -0.2% pull-back in September to a 5.480 mln pace, after a bounce to 5.490 mln in August. In Q2, we saw an average sales pace of 5.287 mln, and we expect a better 5.463 mln pace in Q3. Thursday – 24 October 2019   Services and Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 08:30-09:00) – September PMIs showed a marked contraction in manufacturing activity and a sharp slowdown in services sector growth.

Meanwhile, Services PMI is expected to fall to 51.2. The overall Markit for Eurozone is seen at 49.4, signalling stagnation and highlighting the risk that the weakness in manufacturing sectors is spreading.

Friday – 25 October 2019   German IFO (EUR, GMT 08:00) – In September, the German IFO business confidence came in slightly higher than expected at 94.6. In October, however, the overall business climate reading is seen slightly lower at 94.4. The more forward looking expectations reading is anticipated at 91.8 from 90.8.

    • Perfect Trend Lines, PTL, is a short-term trend trading indicator. The lines showing the trend in this indicator is not straight lines like normal trend lines. PTL indicator calculation is simple. First take the 7 bar high and low, then the 3 bar high and low. If the close price is above the 7 bar high and 3 bar high, then an uptrend is identified. When the close price is below the 7 bar low and 3 bar low then a downtrend is identified. These bars are considered as strong trend bars. The magenta line is the 7 bar high or low depending on the trend. The cyan line is the 3 bar high or low depending on trend direction. When price is trading between these 2 lines trend strength is weak.   A magenta diamond shape appears when sell signal is generated. Cyan diamond shape appears for a buy signal. The magenta line can be used as stop loss. The cyan line provides a tighter stop loss level. Strong downtrend bars are marked by a magenta dot at the bar high and strong uptrend bars are marked by a cyan dot at the bottom of the bar.   PTL.zip
    • Qualitative Quantitative Estimation (QQE) is based on a combination of smoothed Moving Average of RSI along with the average true range ATR. Volatile assets such as forex, futures, stocks etc. can be monitored using the Qualitative Quantitative Estimation (QQE) indicator. The indicator displays two lines; a fast and a slow-moving trailing stop line.  The level 50 is important in QQE indicator. When the fast line (green line) is above 50, trend is considered bullish, if it is below 50, downtrend is assumed.   The original QQE indicator trading strategy is to buy when the green line is above 50 and it cross above dotted red line. For a sell trade the green line is below 50 and green line cross below dotted red line. Some traders open Buy position when the green line is below 50 and it cross above red line. Another method is divergence between price and QQE indicator. When price makes new lows and QQE indicator’s green line fails to make new lows, buy position can be opened. When price makes New highs and QQE green line fails to make new highs, sell position can be opened. QQE.zip
