I have a question.
What people think of ECN type account vs. Fixed spread type account. FXPrimus has both options. Fix spread account is 5 pips spread and ECN type account is 3 pips +1 pip fee per trade.
What I noticed is: on my main account Oil B which is only second half of my trading account after I moved to it from part Oil A I have already paid more than 2% in fees. 2.5% actually. If to add part A it must be way more.
On my testing account I am 10.5% up and in 3 weeks I paid more than 2% for fees. so, I wonder what might be better. Higher spread but no fees or lower spread but 1 pip fee. yesterday they actually increased spread to 4 pips +1 pip fee so, in real term there was no difference. however, spread might have difference when it comes to stop loss or take profit as sometimes price hit my stop with spread of 5 pips and closes it but doe snot reach it with smaller 3 pips sprewad. i guess ECN 3 to 4 pips increase was due to overall increased volitility.
so, what people think of what is better?
I am going to start registering for live account with FX Primus so it is important for me to make a choice.

Thanks in advance.

Yikes, have you read Pushkin's 'Secret Journal'? It was a scandal when it came out a couple of years ago. People didn't want to believe that Pushkin wrote such a lush, kinky novel. Well he did. It's an entertaining book, make sure you read it 😉

Clearly not Alexander Sergeevich Pushkin.

So you been reading this 'adventures in muff-land' book back in 1982 ... I'm lagging behind you then. In 1982 I was munching marshmallows and licking lollies, nothing else.

alright, I don't wanna hijack your thread with these stories. Good luck Oil-man 😉

No hijacking 😀 You are always well come. But yes, these verses of Pushkin were distributed in print :) not official edition obviously.
It was actually my buddy who was a year yonger than me who got this.

went long after 94.00 break out but closed right away cause of oilinventory news coming started thinking I might get stuck.it went well up.shorted after news. bit too late.did not take any profit while about 25-30 pips in profit and closed at BE. entered again, 1 _2 position.stayed in trade about an hour and closed around BE too. from charts I see it is skewed to bearish side right now but lunch time and I gotta go so,so closed.
+0.2% up today.
