Benis

We do not use LMAX trading liquidity. As far as i know they also aggregate their own liquidity and offer this to their clients.

Rubix FX utilises its own liquidity and has very strong relationships with majority of the Tier 1 banks due to its partners having previous senior roles. Some of the banks from the top of my head include UBS, JP Morgan, Barclays, Morgan Stanley, DB, GS and HSBC.

We also tailor our liquidity depending on trade size. Thus if your strategy executes trade sizes of >$10m (100 lots) per click we would put you on our Insti feed. This would help reduce slippage and improve execution.

Speak soon

Cheers

Alex

Rubix FX have provided access to a $1K USD live account to test their feed. I have decided to run OneMillionEA trade copier on it as it's looking very promising and attracting good interest both in this forum and outside http://www.donnaforex.com/forum/index.php?topic=13831.0

Here is myfxbook link to Rubix Fx ECN account, please note the commission rate is discounted to $5.50 if comparing to other accounts/brokers http://www.myfxbook.com/members/jonpearce/rubix-fx-onemillionea/1168879

Hi
Was anyone able to compare more/again Rubix's spread vs other competitor, especially GP and ICM?
According to some tests I've seen here, Rubix's seems the best. But maybe a more "overall" and "averaged" or "weighted" test would help.

Thanks

Spreads are tight else I would not be trading with them. What I like about Rubix is that they state not to profit from clients losses in any way. And I trust them for this. No B-Book. No dark secrets. I have loads of faith in these guys. Hopefully more people see the value.

Hi Guys,

as usually, I am logging spreads for all my favorite brokers 24/7. So I thought some people might be interested in the average spread values of these brokers from the last 2 weeks. I am posting this on each brokers thread that is part of that to be fair. And dont forget that spreads are not the complete costs, there also are the commissions on top of that as well as the average slippage you are getting in and out.

In special relation to Rubix: I have to add on top that Alex is a really great guy. Ive worked with him in the past when he was part of another broker. He is really capable and trustworthy! So I wish him and his whole team the best to make Rubix a success.

Hi forex4life,

You are completely correct average would show a more accurate result. In addition, execution and slippage is another factor. We are adding a few more LP's and speaking to our banks to add price streams for the Asia trading session which seems to be our weaker point. London and US trading sessions we are extremely competitive. Happy to receive this ongoing feedback so we can improve wherever possible

Cheers
Alex

Hi forex4life,

a few posts above Ive posted the average spreads of the last 2 weeks, e.g., the average of all ticks received during these 2 weeks. With the EA I am attaching to this post you can easily compare the spread of any of your brokers. Just add the EA (its not an indicator!) to each pair you want to log - timeframe doesnt matter at all. Then configure the EA to a session if needed, otherwise just leave at false. Have fun:)

Thanks for this infomation Geektrader,  you are doing a great job in your new role with Global Prime. I just put 2+2 together and realised that Alex worked for you new employee Global Prime in the past. It is great to see that you still have positive things to say about your former work colleagues.

Keep up the good work my little friend and remember hard work always pays off.

I thought that I would open a live an demo account with this broker today, however I had a rather unfortunate experience.

Here is my feedback

1. Their system did not send me an email when I requested a demo. I forced to use their live chat, it took them about 8-10 minutes to respond, I was passed from one operator to another. When I asked why it took so long I was told everyone was in a meeting. Support should always be available, sadly it was not. I was finally sent an email with my demo details, this was done manually. When I told them I was going to leave feedback they tried to explain that their system did send me an email however they couldn't prove it was actually sent, all email systems these days track email delivery and open rates, their system DOES NOT. The email was not in any of my spam folders either !!

2. I then tried to open a live account and got stuck on the first step, after selecting the trading platform the account type was not selectable, so I could not proceed. The application form was hanging for 15 minutes, I tried explorer, firefox and chrome but nothing worked. I gave up on the application form so they lost a client.

I decided to find out why I had so many issues so I looked on the code on the page and conducted a traceroute to "secure.rubixfx.com" and I discovered some major issues with the connection from their site to their database, the code is also very very poorly written, it is clear that it was built cheaply. The main issue is that they are communicating with a server located in a data center in Germany, called "Hertzner" from their site hosted by "Cloudflare" in the US, however the code is so poorly written that it calls the database before the application form is even complete It also appears that many of the drop-down menu selections are not stored on the local page but on their database in Germany, this will of course result in latency issues and problems with their application form. They have really used cheap IT personnel to connect the database to their site, they clearly don't realise that information should be stored on page then sent to the database, the page SHOULD NOT CALL the database mid process, A MAJOR DESIGN FLOOR. I also noticed that the information transmitted to their database is NOT SECURE.

They will get no clients if people cant open demo or live accounts. On a positive note chat was helpful once after they finally answered. I hope they fix their IT issues, I might then give them a second chance.
