For misc. reasons I will need to be more flexible on my trading hours, and am considering moving from swing-trading stocks to trading forex. (No, no bucket shops). So far, I've found that trading the FX-futures on globex would suit me fine - the liquidity at least on EURUSD is there, and if one becomes an electronic member one can get some very low commissions. The one thing I haven't checked out properly, is EBS Prime and true interbank trading through a prime bank. At the EBS website the following is stated: "Customers negotiate and pay a fee to their EBS Prime bank, typically in the form of a spread added to the dealt price on the customer's deal ticket. They also pay a standard EBS Spot transaction brokerage fee to EBS." Am I right in assuming that it would be more expensive to deal through EBS than trade on globex as an electronic member? My normal size would probably be around 100-150 contracts in the EURUSD. If anyone would like to share some EBS experiences and info it would be most welcome.
