Looking for a broker
« on: August 05, 2014, 11:23:27 PM »
I am searching for a reliable and good broker for dealing with high investments (200-300k to begin with), I read that its not possible or reliable to trade big lot sizes on certain brokers. Or that other brokers would be really nice but require a big initial deposit/investment.

As I am planning to invest big and trade large lots I would be greatful for some input on how to chose a broker, or weather to split the investment among 3-4 brokers, and if so which should I chose?

Thank you for your help

Dukascopy Bank is probably your best choice.

I would recommend Global Prime.  Very honest broker and will provide you with trade receipts any time you ask.  They can and will provide you with a completely customized feed if you're trading very big lots.  They did this for Geektrader who runs a MAM. Just ask him.  He was executing very large trades with little slippage.  I know because I'm in the MAM and saw the trade size and slippage.

I can also confirm Global Prime as being one of the best brokers (if not the best) currently available for retail traders. Because of their technology, excellent relationship with Liquidity Providers and superb/personalized customer service.

Everyone with real interest and knowing how to use the search function of any forum, would lead to the corresponding post inside Global Prime's thread.

Sorry, I should have been more specific.  :-)   Yes, it was actually over 200 lots.  I remember one trade specifically being at 222 lots with only -0.3 pip slippage!  Another one was 236 lots with -0.4 slip on open and +0.2 on close!  So there can even be positive slippage at those large lot sizes at Global Prime.

I use CitiFX. The spreads are average 1.2 pips in the Asian session. Also the account is FDIC insured free of charge because it's a bank. My IB is Back Bay FX and they also are a really big help. My execution is superior.

Need to re-ck Big Steve.
The FDIC in USA does not extend the insurance protection for forex trading nor deposits for forex trading.

That is why  better for anyone to use European Brokers if possible.
Swiss, UK and the majority of European Union Countries.
