This broker is organized in a way that allowed me to apply trading style that suits me best. In my case, my main focus was to double account balance for 6 months using small trades on small account. During trading, I noticed that almost every trade I made has strong short-term profits but not working in opposite direction. My problem was timing the entry that was not optimized for buy positions and appropriate timeframe. Using another timeframe, I was able to enter on several pairs that changed all my game. All I want to say that if you have something suspicious with your broker, just check it twice because most of our problems lays out in our own misunderstandings. I've made just around 60% (not 100%) but see nothing wrong with broker since all my issues were because of me.
Demo account as well as real has its own weak and strong sides. Fx flat doesn't take responsibilities for difference between them. Regarding previous comment, I've never had such a big spread on usdjpy as 10 points. Broker can offer 3 or 4 pips, otherwise you get requot. It is a standard practice in fx industry. If you really want to trade with fxflat, just look at all variety of services broker offers. Despite all negative comments I can't say anything suspicious about fxflat.
Started trading currencies first time a year ago. For me it was completely new experience. Results on demo account were terrific!!! My strategy based on events trading, so everything was perfect on demo. I've doubled my balance for 4 months and it was a show time for real money ;) Then I lost half of my deposit because spreads became unrealistically huge. I mean around 10 pips on usdjpy almost every day. Guys from support told me that it's because of market movements but there were no market movements. At least not every day and not for usdjpy. My advice, don't open real account with this broker.
