FX trader profitability - interesting statistics

  1. Alpari advertises heavily on EliteTrader, or used to. Maybe their low profitability scores are because they're getting all ET traders.

  2. thanks for the link. I suspect IB's higher deposit amounts (keeps out the riff-raffs) and lower spreads are a contributing factor.
  3. The interesting thing about the customer profitability stats is it's persistency. Quarter in , quarter out , IB leads fx trader's profitability.Could it be attributable to better education? or capitalization of their customers since they have a $10000 minimum, spread tightness . ?
  4. Interesting...should be the same for futures accounts, no ?
