I am looking for a decent retail firm that offers 200:1 leverage, tight spreads (if possible), fast execution, is fair and offers both currencies and futures. I was looking at spread betting, but I need more information about these firms. Are they better than other forex firms? I was looking at www.gcitrading.com and www.gfxsa.com, but I am concerned about their laggy trading platform. Any recommendations? P.S. IB's looks good, but not my thing.
