Admiral Markets operates a Hybrid Broker Model which is a combination of Market Execution (namely STP – Straight Through Processing, i.e. passing all transactions electronically to execution venue without human intervention) – order execution mode where a transaction is processed at the best price available on a trade server, and Exchange Execution (we don't have ECN) – order execution mode where a transaction order is passed to an external gateway connected to an exchange or another liquidity provider.This hybrid model is built to favor both the broker and a trader.
