Hotspot FX

  1. I've tried asking the hotspot FX rep on the board this question and he won't or can't answer me.

    Can somebody tell me what Hotspot means by this order restriction?

    "If an active order is within 10 points of the market, the order cannot be canceled. "

    Does this mean you cannot cancel open orders if your order is within 10 pips maybe of the mkt?

    Can that be right??????
     
  2. I have heard on the institutional side this does not happen...but this does not help you does it?...
     
  3. There website has not changed and I posted this here a year ago. Only a trader there can confirm if they actually follow this..or is it the way they can requote you...???

    John,

    I have sent you a pm.
     
  5. Hotspot is attempting to limit spoofing. The rule makes for a viable depth of market.
     
  6. So how would this effect "market orders" ? Under the input rules would you get a 10 PIP slippage? If you were not Institutional?

    To be Institutional do you need a bank to sponsor you with a credit line?

    PeteHS:
    What is the reason for that rule? It sounds a bit odd in the electronic trading age..

  9. I cannot buy this explanation. Not a chance sports fans. They are simply living to take you money. Stay far far away.


     
  10. You're such an obvious shill for MB. I'll take a dozen major banks over your fictional ECN.
