Getting direct account with LMAX is good but it depends upon your requirements. According to me open an account with LMAX has the only advantage of “ low Latency”.
However, open an account with LMAX is not an easy, they do have minimum capital requirement to open an account.
In addition to that they do have maximum leverage restriction, according to what I heard from colleges, the maximum leverage they can provide is 100X in some currencies, 50X in some and 33X in some.
And also with LMAX, you wouldn’t get the custom trading benefits that you can easily get with the other forex brokers like higher leverage, Deposit bonus, Lower Stop out levels, low account opening balance requirement and lower swap charges.
