Dear Johny,

Just to contribute in your talk, it would be good to head towards which is the best broker (aka, the one that gives the best to customers) rather than the biggest.


Being on the customers' side rather than acting as counterparty.. what do you think?

All the best and thanks for your thread! :)

Big is not always better. I think smaller brokers can offer more quality service than bigger ones. If you compare a broker with min. deposit $1 that has 500k clients, or a broker with min. deposit $500 that has 10k clients. I bet that the broker with less clients can offer better executions, smaller slippage etc.

I was with a fast growing broker that was excellent at the beginning, fast execution, no slippage... But when they were getting new clients, the execution switched from great to horrible. I guess they didn't add any new servers and no upgrades were made..

I'm not looking for the biggest broker, but I am looking for a broker that can provide comfort for me when trading. And certainly, the broker is also safe to use.

I think biggest broker is a broker that has largest number of traders or total trader's money.

Actually its not the question of being big or not. The main deal here is how good is the reputation of a particular broker, the legality, the support it gives to traders esp to newbies and other features a good broker should have. I am not in the position to brag about my broker but I am sure that it has all the good qualities of a better Forex broker. How I can say this? Because I did several background checks and research about the broker. Right now, I'm doing a demo account. Why not see it for yourself. You can know more about this here. Anyway, we all have the free will to pick which broker we want to trade with. Mine is just one of your options.

Most Forex brokers are global. This is because foreign currency trading is worldwide too. So perhaps, yours is just a branch of a global brokerage firm.

As long as we are comfortable trading with a broker that we use and the process of our withdrawal and deposit processed without many obstacles seemed to be no reason for us to change the broker that we are taking. Like I chose Armada Market, with tight spreads and fast execution, and my withdrawal and deposit processed without any problems, no reason for me looking for another broker.

You can find good broker on web search their you will find their ranking as well as all detail what they offer . Now mostly brokers offer low spread , low deposit accounts , different types of accounts you have to choose what you need. You can use high spreads best client support any time.I am happy to work with Tickmill they give me all what I need for trading.

Its better to choose a broker where you friend or any acquaintance is already trading or choose the one which you can easily access.

Broker that provides comfort for trading would be chosen by the trader and we should choose a broker who has a good service as I get in TenkoFx. I can now use a minimum deposit of $ 10 or opening a PAMM account with capital $ 100

Know a lot of big brokers, but I believe biggest doesn't mean best. I trade with Hotforex it is middle size broker but has quite tight spreads and decent execution. Though don't like their swaps they're a bit high on some pairs.

People have more interest on it because of the high return forex give us for our investment, with little investment we can make a lot of money if we understand the market movement, the high return is the main reason why most people now have interest on forex. By the way, I am trading with brokers that provide satisfaction and comfort is required by traders. one comfort I need in choosing a broker is the speed of execution without requotes, low spreads and available ECN accounts that provide certainty of trading in the market directly. Now I find the broker, the broker is Tickmill.

I don't think so, bigger broker means they will resist from any financial problems. There are so many brokers that have been collapse because of bankrupt. But if you join on big broker such as fxpro,Liteforex, and Mayzus, they will survive any times.
