Occasional a spread widenings (which can trigger oanda's own 'limit' orders, causing unwanted entries) is a pain, but you learn to work with it.
Client communication could be better, but I can look past that as pricing, flexibility, execution and reliability are my primary concerns.
Whilst not perfect, they tick most of my boxes, and have my trust.
Anyone shouting that O are a bucketshop, quite simply lack knowledge and understanding. Or are thick. They clearly don't understand what they're involved in and how it all works. They'd shout 'bucketshop' at anyone who they happened to hit a stoploss with. And for that reason, they shouldn't really be trading in the first place, let alone giving opinions on trading platforms..
