ECN Spot Forex Broker

I'm thinking it's time to move away from Oanda as my spot forex broker. Moving to an ECN and away from
a market maker is a good idea, I think...

Perhaps a firm like Dukascopy???

Any suggestions??

Do they have an account size to trade the mini-lot? ($1000)

They're usual deal is $10K isn't it?


thanks for the reply....

I am leaning toward Dukascopy... and I understand there is a bridge tool to use it with NT??
I'm sure I could use the software from Duka... My trading style is very simple....


I am moving from the micro-lot to the mini... so my next step is the $1k level, all my other funds are tied
up with futures....


thanks...

@tderrick, if u use an introducing agent with Dukascopy i will get 45% rebates List of Dukascopy introducing brokers who offer rebates/services back to members - Forex Peace Army Forum, also if u use DTN Bridge, but I tried it and I'n not able to working with it like they say https://futures.io/vendors-commercial-products/7103-dtn-bridge-dukascopy-ninjatrader.html.

Take your Pips, go out and Live.
