Thanks SD,
New to forex, so 400 minimum is this what they call a micro account? Also, this would include free NT datafeed. Also, are you using them as ECN or by spread?

400 would be a micro account which normally trades 1000 lots. The account I use has a lot size of 10,000. I guess this a step above a micro. I have never tried to trade anything below 10K. Value wise, 10,000 basically equals a dollar a pip. 100 pip move = 100 bucks.

They provide a datafeed however, it is not the best on heavy volume days. However, if you trading daily bars then it does not matter. See my post here: https://futures.io/elite-group-trading-methods/11196-cci-simplified.html#post125472
I am going to do a comparison tonight to a good data feed.

If I understand your question; Yes, they have thier own ECN which is part of the appeal. The spreads are really low. Normally 1 pip for the euro. Commission is awesome as well; less than a 1.20 per round trip.

now for the disclaimer: MB and NT7 dont get along real well. Especiallly for positions held through rollover, which happens daily between 5 and 5:15. see previous posts in this thread.

Hi,

I am using the 30 day free data feed for Ninja Trader from PFGBest.

With MB Trading, there is a problem. The tick data is available from the time you open the chart and no historic data is available. I tried to contact their online help but no answer after 3 attempts of around 8 to 9 minutes wait each time.

I called their US office and put on hold for 27 minutes first time and 8 to 9 minutes on second attempt. After this waiting time, I disconnected the phone.

At the same time, at PFGDirect, the online help was available in 2-3 mintues.

The above is my experience. I am in no way connected to any broker.

With regards.
