BTW, pe la toti brokerii la care am fost spread-ul e mare inainte de news release. E normal, lichiditatea lenta se retrage din piata, nimeni care nu e ultra-rapid nu vrea sa si-o ia de la roboti.
Diferenta intre un broker bun si unu prost la capitolul asta e cat de mult se largeste spread-ul. Nu am studiat, ca nu m-a interesat in mod deosebit. Daca insa nu te lasa deloc sa tranzactionezi, e cam nasol.
LMAX-ul e foarte interesant pt scalping/HFT, dar au niste limitari cam dure pt cine vrea access la API (doar la API, web/MultiCharts e ok). Mai exact:
Java/.NET/XML/JSON: Trade a minimum of $5 million in notional value per month or pay $60 inactivity fee
FIX: Trade a minimum of $25 million in notional value per month or pay $300 inactivity fee
After three consecutive months of inactivity, your account will be suspended.
Deci e clar, daca nu rulezi macar $5 mil pe luna, nu prea te doresc.
However, Forex Magnates has learned from LMAX partners and inside sources that the company is winding down its direct to retail operation. When asked about the evolvement in May of this year as well as more recently, LMAX’s marketing division declined to provide comment. However, a source close to the firm did state to us privately that they would be soon no longer accepting retail clients (no word though if they would still accept larger sized individual accounts). The source explained that the process of facing retail clients directly and handling support and compliance “wasn’t worth it economically”. Supporting these comments, another firm who had been in discussion to launch their IB initiative with LMAX explained to Forex Magnates that they retracted their initial plans due to upcoming changes from LMAX.
