This f*cking IBFX In General Jun 19 at 00:40
Their feed has been a bit dodgy of late, but it happens sometimes. All brokers have problems at some point. It should be in your trading plan. Going to happen at some point no matter who you trade with.

Totally It's worth hundreds of millions a year. HFT is big business. What they do, and it's very likely to get stopped soon, is take advantage of time delays in old infrastructure. Orders always arrived at the BATS exchange first, but it takes a bit longer to get to NYSE or Nasdaq because of physical location. These guys would then have a super optimized system to get to the rest of the exchanges first. So they would see what the order is on BATS, the order gets split, sent to other exchanges where the HFT guy already bought at the price the order was for if anything was available. So t......

MT is a toy. Of course you can't do it on MT. You need C++ and most likely FIX. It requires things like microwave connections, inline functions and memory pointers. Special hardware etc... Point is there is a case for very high volumes in FX. On 30 pairs you get about 25 000 to 40 000 ticks per pair per day, that's 1 000 000 value changes. Make a 1 cent one...on a $10k account. Pharkers won't let me trade like that, MT is to slow and Oanda has volume restrictions, or I'd be sending them 1 million 1 unit trades a day. To trade like that you need really big account and go straight inte......

Steve, The HFT's send about 1000 trade per second. So not only is it technically possible, it's a quite common practice in fact. And the HFT's are active in the forex market, I assure you. Only some fxbrokers, iow's the bucket shops, will restrict your volumes.
@ForexAssistant You'd have to hit the showers with a bunch of Asians to understand that reference. The point is people are people. They all want and need the same things. For the most part body language is the same, math is universal. Don't need to make up languages to communicate. English has reached critical mass long time ago, it's like Bitcoin, here to stay and just going to get bigger...anyone that wants to communicate with the world needs to speak English and that's just going to get more true in the future. In all my travels, and that's a lot of travels, I've always been able to......
Results will be terrible. ZigZag not a particularly good way of getting levels. Been there, got that T shirt...
Projection In Suggestion Box Jun 10 at 01:47
I often wonder what the portfolio be worth in x months, at current pace. Be nice to have forward projections based on current stats...
Yes, but I hope you guys understand that not only is the market you're trying to trade beyond any form of analysis, but the contracts you're trading are worthless. And that will very become apparent when the poop hits the fan. That 500 tonnes of gold that got dumped into the market very likely doesn't exists in any current gold storage, it's been rehypothecated. Melted and sold off as jewellery to the moms in Asia. Had someone taken up that 500 tonnes contract I doubt the seller would have been able to deliver. All he has is a piece of paper pointing to rehypothecated stock. That's why the......
You are aware that MT is available as an app for phones? You can also write sms's and e-mails into your EA, and send from the EA. You can also load remote desktop apps on your phone. SMS and twitter is probably the worst option of all of them.
