Hi traders,

To those of you who currently have an account with LMAX, could you please advise which platform would be the best if one wanted the lowest latency possible (between MT4, multicharts or their webtrader platform)

Also, could you please recommend a VPS provider to use with LMAX ? I'm currently using CNS and they advertise a latency of 8 milliseconds. I am just wondering if you have used VPS providers with a lower latency

Thank you in advance for your replies

Kind regards

I must say of all the brokers I'm using LMAX has by far the worst swap rates. Really, nothing comes close.

Works fine for me but if you're tick scalping, then not sure it's the way to go.

During this little "flash crash" or whatever that was LMAX performed the worst of all my brokers I must say unfortunately. While there may have been some quotes on majors (not sure if tradable) most of other pairs just stopped and for a long time. Couldn't get out neither for profit nor loss and TP that was hit on every other broker was not filled. And price went way beyond! Shame on you.

I always thought that LMAX was best of the best. Never knew they could possibly do that to their clients.

To all those who say that the currency market is too big to get manipulated with. This is not the first middle finger. This type of pure price manipulation which is clearly done by a single small gang with deep pockets have been played many times in the past decades.

I can point out many incidents for you, the main one that I remember was in 2009 when the EURUSD went up 600 pips in 60 minutes with no news at all that day.

I stopped trading currencies many years ago and never looked back.

I know they can't fill me with no liquidity, but there was only no liquidity going down. There seemed to be enough around the bottom and slowly going up. LMAX was just frozen on many pairs and I was only able to close the trades 20 minutes later than with any other broker when at least half of the move back up was over.

I try too. No too.

I received lmax hk say I need to show 40m hkd asset proof which is ridiculous. If I had that amount of money, I would not go to retail forex.
