If you live in the US, I'd suggest MB Trading. Stay away from FXCM 'cause their spreads aren't good and they have some history of screwing the clients with slippage.
It really doesn't matter what platform you trade on. I do fine on MT4 or any other platform. Broker, yes, they can affect your performance with their games/restrictions.
If you don't live in the US and not a US Citizen, I'd say Thinkforex is the best MT4 broker. Instant execution. I have an account with IronFX, but their spreads are higher and they play more "broker games". So I think I'm going to keep the account there (since the trading history looks good), but I won't use them for intraday trades anymore. With Thinkforex, you can also get the $3/lot rebate through cashbackforex.
Whoever asked for one in the UK, I WOULD NOT recommend Alpari. When I set up an account there, I got nothing but requotes. I tranferred my account out of there very quickly. Open an account at Thinforex. I haven't seen better, yet.
