Ah I see, then if NT are the broker as well it should be alright I guess, as you are dealing direct with NT and not a third part broker. But if you have doubts why not to trade currency futures and/or the micro currency futures? Do you want to trade the crosses as well?

Been using NT Brokerage for FX back when they used FXMC and now as they use FOREX.COM. I think it's better now that they use FOREX.COM.

They are not a broker in and of themselves.

One thing I don't like about FOREX.COM data (which I just learned last night and today) is the feed does not offer Net Change info. For example the percent change of a pair from yesterday. I view all the pairs and futures I watch in a Market Analyzer and have it auto sort based on percent change. All of 2017 I used IQFEED FX data even though I had free data from NT broker. Here in 2018 I end my IQFEED FX data to save $20/mo but now I see this issue. Will have do a little coding to make my own Net Change.


It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.
