What do you think about FxPro?
I am in general satisfied even though the spreads are 2 times higher than elsewhere but it is fine.
What I dont get is few of my trades were delayed by 5000 ms and of course executed with corresponding sllipage.
I go this explanation - seems like dealing desk dealing with only some trades, ehm...
What do you think?

A very small % of the orders received by FxPro, less than 0.01 %, is flagged by our sophisticated automated systems due to potentially delayed prices or times of extreme volatility or a combination of other occurrences.
 
These orders are diverted for manual verification before execution. The manual verification may take an average of 4-6 seconds till the completion of the trade depending on the number and the size of orders routed. Please note that orders routed to manual execution are processed in turn of being received.
 
This is performed in a non-discriminatory manner and may lead to better or worse price for all clients compared to the automated execution that usually completes within 50 milliseconds and is in line with our regulatory best execution requirements towards our clients.
 
We hope the above clarify why your order was executed in a longer time than usual.

I have noted also some times these delays but only on MT4. Never noticed them on cTrader. I personally think that cTrader is less expensive (0.9 Pips + 0.4 spread for EURUSD instead of almost 2 pips in MT 4 - also MT5 than MT4). MT5 looks also cheaper than MT4. The real disadvantage of MT5 is that FxPro does not allow hedging (which is now a feature of MT5 when the broker wants it).

@Tullius
thanks for your opinion,

the spreads for MT4 FxPro are higher but the difference to ctrader is not so big,

as spread fluctuates from 0.6 to 1.6 pip.

I am satisfied as I run this account as master and copy trades to followers.

Having big fxpro spread on master does help to achieve the same or even bigger profit on followers at another brokerages.

If you’re trading with FxPro keep in mind that the broker has stopped offering its social trading platform SuperTrader. Although the broker has not made an official statement on the issue, its social trading terminal SuperTrader is no longer present among the platforms offered FxPro and that the webpage dedicated to this social service is no longer accessible.

FX Pro is a Russian broker and I would not take a risk to fund account with more then 1000 EUR. :)

Well fxpro.co.uk is regulated under UK so it is IMHO fine
On the other hand I agree Russian brokers are very dangerous

They appear a premium broker to me and although i have only been using them a short time, they also sponsor football teams - must be legit :)

They are legit and regulated in UK.
In the past they seemed to start as Russian broker which raises a big red flag for me.
