What attracted me to MIG at the begining was their acquisition of the Swiss Bank Licence, the number of currency pairs they offered, 70 I believe, and their customer support which was ok. What has now pushed me to stop being their client is their MT4...too often I have experienced 5 to 60 minutes of down time. They claim it is not fully their fault being that the platfrom is a 3rd party platform, that said MIG should do whatever is required to solve the problem. They claim they are working on their own in-house platform but that they are still many months away from beta stage, and the choice to tradable markets(what I wanted when they became a bank) is also not for any immediate date.
All that said, the news of AC - Markets becoming part of Swissquote Bank can only come as breath of fresh (Swiss!) air for other traders sharing my sentiments, not just about MIG but other brokers who just...don't seem to reach the hype they spurt. I have had an ACM demo for 5 weeks now (webtrader, and not their version of MT4) and although it required me to adjust to the differences, I am finding it a far more complete platform. Maybe down the line I will see what Swissquote can now offer its ACM clients as well. This trully feels like the complete trader's package.
