Regardless which broker, they all manipulate the feed/trades whenever they get the opportunity to do so to their advantage. I've been saying this all along. Some brokers are worse than others. Trading with an EA suffers even more. They are able read the strategy coded in the EA in advance making any form of manipulation perfectly executed rendering it less conspicuous. However, I've come across sceptics who dismissed this arbitrarily.

Old story here. Prices for the feeds are generated by the liquidity providers, aka the bank. We've known for years that different liquidity providers have different prices at any given time. In fact there was once an arbitrage strategy that looked at several brokers to determine entry points and direction.

Pass through brokers don't care if you win or lose, so long as you keep playing the game. If you lose too much, you quit trading and then they lose. So for pass through brokers, it is better if you win. We did have a slogan once, several years back that went something like “ Don't trust your broker”. But you don't hear that anymore because with the ECN system that we have now, you can be friends with your broker again as they are on the same side of the table as you are. (Pass through types only).

Thank you for the reply Bob,
That is how it should be, fair for both parts, and thats most of the times what the brokers argue, but when you have been looking charts for years, different brokers, markets, demo and real accounts, market makers, stp and ecn accounts you learn when there is something going on, like a virtual dealer plugin working... Thats exactly why i started to record the trade, this is only a screenshot.
I do not post a lot, but that doesnt mean I am new in this....My only point here is not complaining or trying to find someone guilty instead of me for a loss, I was the one who place a trade on... a broker who uses slippages as huge as 5 pips and delays as long as 6 sec. Its just to show the traders who can be an excellent, good, medium, bad or extremely bad broker.

You can say who the broker was. Comparing brokers is one of our favorite pass times.

I won't use foex.com because they changed the trading rules and didn't bother telling anybody. They lost me as a customer and I still tell others why. So who are we talking about?
