AAAFX's DNS is hosted by Godaddy, which was attacked by Anonymous today, putting maybe millions of websites offline, also myfxbook.
Should be back in some hours

Their customer support is good, but their spreads+slippage+requotes are not good. If you are not using Zulu there is no reason to send your money to Greece.

I tried a year ago, after sometime you will realize that the only way to make money in zulu is copying trades from tripleA to a better broker like Armada, Pepper, Axi....

and what about slippage and all? i used to be with alpari before and slippage and commissions were a total killer, and thats why i looked for a better trading conditions. aaafx is a very good broker both for manual and auto-trading.

I dont doubt that you can profit in Zulutrade by using other supported brokers as well , just i personally feel that aaa fx is one of the best to use.

I'm talking about copy trades from your tripeA account to an unsupported broker (Armada, Pepper, Axi....), and not using other supported broker, what is even worse than tripleA due to high commissions and fees

AAAfx doesnt have extra commissions (nor per trades,not autotrading on Zulutrade - not even in the spreads) if you compare with the very independent and strick source myfxbook you will see for yourself.
the only reason for anybody to be doing what you are describing to me is like looking for extra gains (unregulated of course) and if you are willing to take the risk - sure go ahead and do that -nody is stopping you....regulations sometimes can be a pain but there is a reason they are there - and this is protecting the end customer - us ;)

So you say AAAfx doesnt charge commission (right) and doesnt even have a markup on the spread (I doubt so)?

Then why is the spread still so extremely high compared to other serious brokers (including commission) already? And execution time being like 2 seconds while the others there have sub 500ms most of the time?

On top of that, IC Markets, Pepperstone, FXOpen are all fully regulated brokers in a stable country - Australia. So why should we pay triple to four times the spread and accept high execution times with AAAFx being in Greek (sorry, but I wouldnt have any money there in a broker account right now)? I dont see the point why anyone should go with AAAFx here (except you are forced to use them via Zulutrade or something, but then again, who uses Zulutrade with great results?), given those facts. And even if AAAFx would be in a financial stable country and superb regulated, the spread still is 3 to 4 times as high and execution slow compared to other great regulated brokers.

my friend you are deeply mistaken  :)

IC markets (you see the red triangle note there) means that "charges a commissions of $3.5 per 1 lot traded. add this up to your low spreads and the overall trasactions turns out to be not that low afterall.  8)

and btw, you are putting a sellected info with the screenshot trying to influence in your direction your point, which is misleading. when you open the whole comparison table, well it is totally another story.

do not forget that AAAFx is MiFID which is an EU legislation, regardless the European country of origin. Yes Greece, might not be in its best but so are Spain and Italy and Portugal and was Island not log ago. You are being prejudiced without knowing all the fact. as for the execution, there was previously posted here in this forum showing exacrtly executions performance per ms, go look for it and see for itself. I am not saying it is the lowest, i am simply stating the fact that is much better than other brokers.
Again, lets use equial measurment when we compare and do not mix institutional with retail forex, ok.

Nobody is forcing me to follow any system - i do both MT4 trading and copying signals on zulutrade - both from 2 different types of account. there is no reason to spread spam, mate!! there are tons of winning followers - just check their performance in system those who want their accounts to be public are shown to the zulutrade community.

Do your homework, the commission you are mentioning is already included in the spreads that are being displayed on the screenshot Ive posted, thats why I made a red ring around the "Include Commission" field. So thats the spread you are really paying at those brokers WITH commission already. But even if it was without commission and youd add up another 0.7 pips to the spread of those brokers, the spread would still be 2 times lower than on AAAFx LOL ;)

I have an account with AAAFx from old times when I tested them, just for you I did a transaction to today on EURUSD on a little spike. I got OffQuotes 2 times and then a execution time of 3 seconds and slippage of 2.1 pips, very nice hehe:) So beside the super high spread execution is still slow and you get slipped.... great broker!

MFID really doesnt mean much, it just forces the broker to have some minimal regulations are per EU laws. The Australian ASIC is a lot more strict on requirements that a broker has to meet.

And why the heck should I choose AAAFx if even with double the commission at IC Markets (and AXI, and Pepperstone, and Armada Markets, and....) the spread is still lower, execution much faster, slippage much less?

Sorry, but there is no need for a broker like AAAFx in 2012 with sky-high spreads, slows execution and high slippage.
