Just wanted to give everybody heads up on the Collective! Even though they closed their membership to new members, I have had a demo acct for a couple of weeks. My EA was doing great on their "low spreads", but last night as the market opened up, I noticed my account spiralling downward as my trades were being taken out by mysterious spikes. I checked 4 other brokers and they had normal prices (no spikes at all), with about a 30+ pip difference! I emailed them and they explained it as "changing data feeds", since they were adapting their platform and feeds to a new bank. That doesn't explain a 30+ pip difference in my book. This morning, the same thing was happening to nearly every trade! I emailed them again, and they said I was not being polite. I did not use any bad language, but I did use a couple of exclamation marks for emphasis, not in any offensive way at all. They responded with "We have closed our membership. Good luck wherever you end up trading." They couldn't even explain this anomaly. If you haven't heard of this broker, you can check their website Home. Notice partway down the page: "The Collective FX will NEVER 'Stop Hunt', 'Price Spike' or 'Quote Delay'." If they aren't doing this, who is? Their bank? If so, it's still their responsibility. It's bad enough to pay their monthly fee and commissions, and then, on top of that, get spiked along the way. I know, since I have only a demo acct, that they were not targeting me personally, but I'm sure someone with a real acct and similar trades got the axe! Great job guys! Who can we trust out there anymore?
