FOREX.COM broker feedback

Hello futures.io (formerly BMT) ,

I have in mind to quit Interactive brokers because I am a non US resident , high margin requirements and EUR-USD change rate fee .

There are not a lot Forex brokers supporting Ninjatrader outside the US so I am looking at Forex.com/UK .

Have you some experience with this brokers for spot Forex and futures indices ?

You can do a search for Gain Capital (forex.com) and find several threads that may help.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

You can only trade Forex with NT on Forex.com .

The spread is 2 and sometimes 3 for EURUSD pair for example .. not good not bad !

The only issue with NT is that there is no integration of NT Platform with the Web trader application in Forex.com
Also account in Euros is not supported , only in USD.... I may swith to FXCM later on .

Horrible spreads. USDJPY is 0.5pips or less @ IB, while 1.3pips or higher at Forex.com. That's 2.6x higher or a 160% increase.

Best broker set up for Ninjatrader Forex so far..


I was just recently with FXCM for about 2 weeks using NinjaTrader and I was extreemly disapointed with how the platform would perform connected to there API . The main problem was they offer around 72 currency pairs to trade and I know most of them are exotics but..... I could only get data from there API to support only 3 pairs and it took forever for charts to load. The spread they charge is usually 1-2 pips higher then many of their competitors so I found no reason to stay with them. Since then I have connected Ninjatrader to MB Trading which has been very pleasing in all aspects, I get much tighter spreads and Ninjatrader works great with all there currency pairs and the charts load up in a acceptable amount of time.
Just a FYI I would like to mention that FXCM states you can fund the account with your CC and withdraw with your CC but after finding out the hard way they only let you withdraw if you upgrade to a standard account. In other words if you put $500 in a micro account and try to take it out later you cant without putting in another $500 to upgrade to standard.

also I told support at FXCM about the problems with NinjaTrader and they knew that was on there end not mine.

Good Luck in your trading Quantismo
