I was surprised when this giant brokerage firm on the US market offered forex service for retail customers. For a long time it was focused only on stock market. I registered immediately. Etrade offers MT 4 platform for trading currencies. Not bad. Anyway, it is not a big difference if you open account in FXCM. It is identical level of service due to the same technologies and liquidity providers they use. E*TRADE use all these things from forex capital markets because it is introducing broker to fxcm. I am not a customer of fxcm but etrade could’ve been offer better service than retail FX broker. The point I stay with etrade is its reputation. That is much higher then any forex broker has.
Execution seems to be plagueing the E-trade Financial platform, I thought it was my own server, as told me by ET, but have since read around that it ain't. looks like many of the tech team have left an ain't been replaced. Sad for us as it limits our trading capabilities.
\"watch this one\" Very ominous Mr. Forex. First of: If you\'re such a knowledgeable, you would know that FX is not for cheapskates. 5,500 is a decent sized account if you\'re into making money and not into playing around and posting baseless posts that mislead others that surf posts to find useful information, which your posts lacks, by the way). Second: E*Trade FX is a white label platform of Saxo Bank, which actually just sends their trades to Deutsche Bank. So how about them apples Mr. Forex.
Ј3000 is not for the light forex market player. This is about $5500 large again if you are a beginner watch this one
