That helps! I moving up from single Lots to the 10-30 Lots range for my risk tolerance, so was trying to gain some insight about what to expect before learning the hard way. I use Gain Capital which is a market maker. Not sure if I will go with an ECN. I haven't looked into switching yet.



As a side question, what are your thoughts on ECN vs Market Maker?



Go with an ecn. Otherwise your open to all sorts of bs. Have a look at lmax. Can be used with NT via an add on.
