    Hi peter1977,

    I have tested MIG (no problem), Masterforex (ok but don't use Liberty Reserve to fund your account, it is a scam. I don't know what they propose this option...) and Alpari UK that is excellent.

    I have an account with them, but I have not yet tested it.

    MIG no, Masterforex yes.

    I have a live account with FXCM and a couple of demos with others.

    I don't dislike the account, and can still make decent money manual trading with it, but it has a couple of goofy things.

    1. Order execution can be slow - waiting 15 seconds feels like a lifetime when you want to close a trade.

    2. It has some funny wicks that don't show up on my demo accounts. SGD is the worst, but it happens on cable and AUD too.

    I'm considering opening up another account and I had tried Alpari's Demo before, but I can't remember why I ruled it out. What makes you like it, funyoo?

    I have one real account with Alpari UK. I am using MT4 with them with Heiken Ashi EA using 0.1 lots for every 10K deposited with good results so far.
    I have tried FXDD, IBFX, TadawulFX and Forex.com to trade with MT4 and the best I have seen is Alari UK.

    For managed accounts I am using Oanda and FXCM. According to the account managers FXCM has some slippage problems. I have not heard any complaints from Oanda´s account manager.

    There is one important thing: demo accounts do not perform as real ones. The data feed and spreads are slightly different which causes EAs to behave in a different way. If you are using fundamentals, perhaps you will get the same results.

    Real accounts can be dangerous for news trading because some times your orders may not get filled during the news spikes

    Fast orders execution, fast wire transfer and fast account opening.

    Did anyone trade NFP yesterday? How long was your order placement?

    I ask because I placed a close position order on FXCM UK yesterday and it took over 90 seconds to close. This was 10 minutes after data released, so you can imagine how much price can move in that time.

    As a bonus, it gapped my SL at breakeven and turned a 20 pip winner into a 5 pip loser. I think its time to find a new broker...
