Thread: Questions for those who are making money trading

    Default Questions for those who are making money trading

    It took me some time but I'm now making meaningful money from my trading systems. My past automated trading was done with small accounts with around 1000-3000 dollars. After building a few systems I'm now making much larger sums each day (in the 1000's) and its growing quite rapidly.

    Soon (assuming performance remains the same) I'll be trading with accounts in the 6 figure range. All of my brokers are ECN/STP do I'm not worried about them trading against me (assuming that really happens) but at what point do you start to run into problems getting orders filled ? At what point do you say you have too much money in a single account and spread them out across brokers or accounts?

    or are these concerns even really valid?

    If you have more than 150k, you can get special accounts with smaller spreads, a server with less clients and in consequence less busy trade context, less requotes.

    For example for Tadawul, you can get the premium account : premium-forex-account | TRADING ACCOUNTS

    The broker can trade against you if you have tight takeprofit/stoploss and if most of the other clients are approximatively trading the same way at this moment.

    with 150k you can run your own mt4 server = no requotes
    with 150k you can run a special broker bank account (level2) clearing made by bank license owner
    with 150k you can buy 3 small flats, refurbish it,...
    and so on...

    I used to trade real account @ 660k Euros on behalf of an investor ...
    I noticed that all my requests to him about the account specifications and modifications are done easily, like,
    -having better, actually, much better spread. More market prices depth.
    -never noticed requotes or busy server.
    -I have been the first and the only one yet as I know who offered swap free account because we trade
    a big account. Small accounts can't get this option.

    I used to trade small and much big accounts. I believe trading bigger accounts is more easier than the small ones
    in case if you treat price movements as pips but not in $$$ and not be greedy.
