By trading conditions, I mean the size of the spread, ping to the broker's server, the speed of execution of transactions, the amount of slippage, the availability of adequate technical support and the possibility of withdrawing profits. It also plays a big role for me where the broker's servers are located.
LMAX has always been a masterpiece, if not the best one, it is one of the very few best Forex Broker: his reputation is very high. Spread is tight, the servers are into Equinix LD4 (my ping is 1.7 milliseconds), the slippage is ok (but I have not enough trades with ELM-EA to give you more details) and the rest is fine. Now, let me tell you one thing, that I think it's singular: the speed of execution on live account is 1/2 of the demo one. In other words, 40 milliseconds for opening and closing trades: great!
Unfortunately also this week I had no trades on LMAX live account because the setting I have tested on demo doesn't work on live: the reason is that the demo account is filtered, the ticks on demo are about 1/3 of the normal, live account. For this reason I am not able to give you suggestions on LMAX. I have opened a specific thread
, hoping people that already are trading ELM-EA on this MT4 account will give me their precious suggestions.
