Max: I would say Oanda is a quite very good broker. I would rate them as one of the most honest market maker around. And if you need it, their support is very good. Don't know what you mean by 'Offshore' as Oanda is a US company and they opearte in US, UK and SG. That's not really Offshore :) What I don't like with Oanda is the 1:50 margin and no hedge (even in UK) policy.
I understand you about EUR longs, but it's now the case with many, many brokers since last ECB rate cut. On markets, USD is actually paying more interest than EUR ! In fact, you start to find more and more brokers that pay positive interest rates on EUR/USD shorts now ... You were used to get interest on EUROS, this time is over for now, until Europe situation gets better (if it will one day, lol) and ECB raise again its interest rates.
It depends of what you're searching for. *FxPro* has nice swaps but not that good spread. *LMAX* has pretty good swaps and very good spreads + one the best execution you can dream of, but as an ECN you will have fees to pay (you can see them compensated by the low spread, I mean with other brokers you pay them too, you just pay them with the spread, but it can change psychologically). *FxPrimus* is not bad, and is Offshore if it's what you seek (They are great, but I would say, beware of swap changing if you take large positions and plan to keep them with FxPrimus)
*ThinkForex* in NZ and *Fxcc* in Cyprus seem not bad, but I never was with them. And their swap aren't very good. They are better on the spread and execution side. So for people who don't keep their positions too long.
*Dukascopy* in Switzerland seems very good, but no MT4, or you have to pay an external provider to have MT4 (additional fees). Never was with them either, but only heard good things about them.
Oh, check *Armada Markets*. Just be careful as they are quite new and their regulation is not very known. But I was with them, and everything was fine (very small account I admit). They use LMAX to hedge their trades, and *** they are now still paying positive swap on EUR/USD ***, seems to be what you're looking for ! Excellent execution, high leverage, but some fees to pay, as your trades go to an ECN
Just avoid SCAM brokers like Exness ;) Don't be attracted by their fake spread or swaps, as it doesn't reflect the reality, and they will scam you if you're a winning trader, as I feel they can't do anything else with such too-good-to-be-true conditions.
I'm very happy to see all the quick reactions about Jeevan's absurd comment. Thanks everybody. On his page, this guy recommends two of the best known SCAM brokers, lol.
Oh, a last thing Max: Check the reviews on FPA before opening an account with a new broker.
