I am using Forex.com and forex Place (4XP) and I was signed up sith FXSalt in the UK.  I just learned from a telephone conversation that they will not take US clients because CITIBank will not allow because of US regulations.  These gentlemen were kind enough to call and let me know.

maybe they trust alpari because its there for a long time.
and with the withdrawal?. yes. someone using alpari should be telling us. because ive read
so many bad reviews of alpari in fpa.. also its execution and almost everything in regards to trading is bad with alpari. maybe someone using alpari should clarify them here.  ???

can't comment on withdrawal as I've not tried, but so far mostly things have worked ok for me. Sure you get some slippage, and variable spreads don't work well for scalping, but I'm more inclined to longer trades so doesn't really affect me too much.

Only seen a couple of minor glitches in a year, so for me it's working for the moment :)

I believe they are market making, but so far I've not seen many requotes and execution generally hasn't been an issue for me :)

Last week I opened a demo account with FXCM because I heard alot of people was using them. After a week I can say, they are not very good ! Lots of disconnects and crashes, I would not want a live account with these guys. Anyone else with bad experience with FXCM ??

i also tried fxcm and i was shocked to their spreads.. try mbtrading or jadefx perhaps if you dont want a regulated one.

Need to add OANDA, the largest US-based non-MT4 broker.

Not only did I find the commissions to be rather stiff, but the rollovers will kill you at MB Trading if you carry a position overnight. At least they are regulated, but NFA of course, which is a major drawback.

I have been with Alpari for over 4 years, the only problem I have with them is the spread widening during Asian session, mainly for EURCHF.

Withdrawals have never been a problem, although they have asked me on one occasion 'why' I wanted to make a withdrawal!  The cash comes through quickly too.

Please add BeamFX to the list of brokers.  I am using them plus Go Markets.  BeamFX offer a very good VPS for anyone opening a BeamFX  account, so I was able to close my paid for VPS service.  Their AUD/NZD spreads are too high, so they don't work for Retracer, but they work fine for Primeval and other scalpers.
