mariav, please, thats a bucket shop managed by Russians (Belive me, You should never have bussiness with Russians, they just can't do Brokerage Bussiness fair, its not in their blood). If You see Russian or Ukrainian broker - just have a good laught at it and run away.😉 (Don't be fooled by their London office). By the way, that broker you recomended is a great example of heartless marketing by using ECN/NDD theme. And, please, dont get me wrong, It has nothing to do with Russia-Ukraine tension right now. It's just my live expirience of last 5 years trading.
And about topic here...Yes. I'm sure there are a good number of true ECN brokers. They usually charge not a small commision on Your every trade, but their spread is tight for sure and their minimum deposits are high & leverage is low. Thats their way to make money - True ECN broker gives best execution speed, tight spreads, great client support, deposits protection, financial regulation, advanced trading platform to attract clients. Then they just make they profit on commisions and thats should be all and thats why brokers was created for on the first place. I mean like ' old school' brokers - you call them, you ask them to open a position for You, they do it and thats it.
