ECN and some of the best spreads of ANYBODY!!! [http://www.fxintel.com/live/] - The customer service is over the top good. Their is NO markup on the spread (thats why the spreads are so low) and only $8 per 100K commission no matter the pair traded (other ECN's factor in the Currency price which can make the commission increase/decrease). Minimum lotsize is 0.10 and micro increments are allowed (0.10, 0.11, 0.12, etc..) - If you want to stop playing market maker games and trade with a ECN that processes orders without delay, requotes or platform freezes ATC is the only game in town. Another bonus - The price feed is from FXCM-UK so you have Hedge and LIFO with a USA NFA licensed Broker - Who's better than that!?

It ain't easy being Cheesy!

ATC states still 'coming soon' on their home page.. do u trade live with them now??

Cant believe that NFA allows one of their members such a 'work around' on the recent restrictions..eek

Unbelievable customer service and rock solid stable platform with the the tightest spreads in the business. They are adding more liquidity very soon which will put them even more on top.

ATC is not the only one -- I use FXDD and FXCM and they both found a way to go around NFA restrictions some time ago, though finally they both created branches for non US clients (FXCM uses a UK branch and FXDD - a Malta branch).

The comparison on fxintel is a bit untrue.

ECN usually charge spread and comission

FXDD and FXCM do not charge comission

So when ATC shows 0,7 pip you need also add 0,8 pip (comission) = 1,5. It is still better than FXDD and FXCM, but real numbers should be compared...

I trade live with ATC and it's the best I have experienced in the past 6 years of my trading. The max slippage is less than 0.5 pips while other can be 5 pips or more. Fast execution, very tight spread as low as 0 pips for GBPUSD and great customer services, just can not name them all.

This broker is part of my winning strategies. Can not trade without ATC any more. I just love it.

I must be a better person first before I can be a profital trader.

It's unfortunate that their maximum trade leverage is dropping to 50:1 very soon.

email from ATC Brokers:
On August 30th, 2010 the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) announced the issuance of final rules regarding the regulation of off-exchange retail foreign exchange (Forex) transactions and intermediaries. The rules go into effect on October 18, 2010 and implement provisions of both the CFTC Reauthorization Act of 2008 (Farm Bill) and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (Dodd-Frank Act).

Due to this ruling by CFTC, US clients who currently have a trading account with FXCM UK division will be transferred to FXCM US division. The trading leverage will be set to 50:1, however, all other aspects of trading will maintain the same structure.

I agree that ATC is one of the best ECN brokers. I like their spreads + commission. If they just reduce their commission to 6$, it would be excellent.

Best wishes,

ATC provides a leverage of 1:50 to US residents only. For non-US accounts, the leverage jumped to 1:200 recently. The $8/RT commission is not bad at all, considering that it's not per 100K USD but per 100K base currency! So the commission is less then $6/standard lot of EURUSD and less than $5/standard lot of cable atm. Round-turn. They are tied to FXCM very closely but their approach, proprietary MT4 bridge and access to liquidity (not the same as retail FXCM ECN) make it a different story. I'm not affilated to them in any way, just a very-near-future client who hopes to be satisfied. Will post my experience in a month or two.
