They are like minimum 50% cheaper than any USA forex broker, have very fast fills/stable infrastructure.

And... the only guys I know personally trading forex and earning money are with Dukascopy. They are all Europeans though.

Are Europeans smarter than others or are they getting a better deal?

Dukascopy! Dukascopy! Dukascopy!

Americans can't do Dukascopy. They are one of the better forex ECN brokers. I don't like their JFOREX system though. They need to get an MT4 bridge that works better.

If you are UK then do Spread betting!

I am a forex scalper on MB trading. I pay NO commissions and I set my own spread.

I have placed in excess of 600 trades in a single day --I couldn't afford to do that if I were paying commissions. The most I've earned in commission "rebates" in one day was about USD $85. Back when they were paying more... Now, it would be about half that...

I can't recommend MB Trading highly enough--however, I only use the pay for limits plan and only place limit orders.

I hope this helps.
