With all the regulation right now I am finding it difficult to find a broker, outside of the big guys such as FXDD, FXCM, and FXDD that take US residents.
What other ones are out there that take US residents?

Yeah, Oanda. Good broker /and I'm not saying this coz I'm on their payroll/

Surround yourself with people whose eyes light up when they see you and who have no agenda for your reform.

Did ibfx say how they managed that? I was looking at them. They seem ok at first glance. But for some reason there are things that make me twitch with them. Don't know why? Seems more like they put just enough information on there site without actually giving all the information.

I've used Oanda since I started trading. Great spreads for the most part. I made a buku on their price options, which is only on the FXTrade platform. But no hedging allowed and leverage is restricted to 50:1 🙃

They all do backoffice accounting of FIFO rather than do it on MT4 platform. I recommend FinFX.
Nothing beats Integral liquidity solution and their ECN model.

Never ever ever give up!!!

something to do with their backoffice..I don't know...get a demo and check it for yourself is my recommendation...
Oanda seems to have some larger spreads than others I use
