After doing some more research and going back and forth between a few of the FX brokers, I think OANDA with it's FX Manager platform has everything I'm looking for as a CTA (thanks rossb34). Clients can even have balances in the currency of their choice and they are one of the few FX brokers that pa...

Thanks for update on dukascopy. I'm now looking at www.PFGBest.com and www.CitiFXPro.com as two other possibilities with tight spreads and the ability to manage client accounts with.

I'm a CTA and dukascopy looks like it could be a nice option to manage client accounts with, but you said that clients need to deposit a minimum of 250k? that seems pretty high. I just sent them an email about that. One thing I'm not sure if I fully understand is how they are charging commisions. Si...

Gunter thanks for your feedback. For my FX strategy I will be implementing more of a short term trading approach with trades lasting from 1-5 days so for me the spreads can make a differense in how profitable I'm to some degree, so of course I'm going to be looking at that as well. But I agree with ...

OANDA spreads are some of the best I have seen, they beat FXCM by a pip or so for example, I'm surprised they don't provide services for CTA's though.

Best FX Brokers

What are the top FX brokers I should be looking at to open an account with? So far based on my research FXCM, OANDA, MB TRADING and INTERACTIVE BROKERS seem like some of the best options. Any feedback from the group would be appreciated.

Test for gaps

When doing "Check DB Integrity" in UA (newer version) it provides an option to check for gaps , I was wondering if this is something that should be checked or unchecked when doing data updates? I have tried finding information on this, both in UA and here but have not found any anything on this mat...

Another thing that I'm sure many of the larger firms do is assign a trader to a market or a sector and when there's a signal they spend the entire trading day (or days) buying or selling as many contracts as needed and this could at times equal 100% or more of the average daily liquidity for that ma...

Transtrend: trading pork bellies

Up untill this year I had been trading pork bellies but because of the recent decline in volume I have decided to exclude it from my portfolio :( at least for now. But looking at Trandtrend's latesdt disclosure document (updated 2010) it seems that they are trading this market, so I'm wondering if a...
