I've been trading FX with IB for about a year now. I'm very happy with their order execution, spreads, etc., but I just dislike their trading platform and the complexity of dealing with the company so much I'm thinking of switching. I've tried a demo account with FXCM, and had some serious problems. I'm not a scalper, so I don't mind a bit of slippage or spread widening. But what I saw at FXCM was disgraceful. Even using a 75 pip trailing stop on EUR/USD, I was getting stopped out at a loss of 20-30 pips when the price never got within 40 pips of the level where the stop should have been triggered. This happened over and over again. Clearly they allow spreads to momentarily expand to outrageous levels, triggering stops. Anyways, I'm going to start a demo account at GFT and was wondering what others thought about them. Like I said, I'm not a scalper. It seems like their spreads remain fairly fixed, and as far as I can tell they are not too far from the actual price. For someone who trades for longer day trades and even holds positions for a couple of days, is GFT worth using? Or do they have unscrupulous methods of separating me from my cash? Any other brokers that would be good for my style of trading? I don't mind bucket shops if they give me fair breaks, but if there is a good ECN with a simple platform, that would be best, I suppose.
