Default ODL vs MB Trading

I use ODL for my MT4 feed and MB Trading as my broker. ODL candles are based on GMT time and it seems to work best for me.
MB Trading is going to offer MT4 in the next sveral months but until then I am having to use there own trading platform. I would have stayed with ODL but they kicked all of their US customers to the curb at the beginning of the year.

Cabbage,

thanks a lot for your help. I also traded with ODL til last year but wasn't happy with them. Spreads to high, bad service. Btw I live in Germany. I'm looking for a reliable, fast executing low spread ECN broker. But probably its impossible to find one who meets all my expectations. I also need MT4 because I'm testing some EA's.
All the best
and once more thanks a lot
pete

Default ECN broker, Off subject but it answers a question

Pete,
I am in California. Look into MB Trading. They have extremely low spreads, they work on a comission basis. Right now the spreads are: Eur/usd-1.3, GBP/JPY - 4.5, these are just 2 examples. They are not a retail bucket shop that trades against you and profits when you loose. I agree, no ones seems to have pulled it all together under one roof for us.

I have been using MBT for my main brokerage now for just over 1 year. All said and done, I have no complaints with them. The issues I have had in the past were resolved timely and to my satisfaction.... and they don't frown on scalping since they are basically a commissions based group with tighter spreads.

And since apparently ODL has booted their US client base... it's a no brainer :)

I wrote MB an email and asked them about MT4 trading. They definitly will implement it but still don't know when. They are still testing. So let's wait and see.

I have had problems with the MB Trading charts "populating" the history. Don't know if they have fixed it, they were going to work on it.
