I dunno, I'm from the US and I've been with (over the years) IBFX, FXCM and MBTrading. They all have been good and haven't affected my trading by any of them. FXCM bought out IBFX and when the SNBomb hit I moved to MBTrading because they weren't affected as bad. All have been honest and great in my opinion.

First TMS Capital tried to screw me out of commissions AFTER I submitted clients, then I signed up as an IB to Alfatrade UK ltd. The guy here was Tom Harrington who claimed he was the CEO ( but I cannot find any reference on Co House). His sidekick is Benjamin White.
I introduced one of my introducers to him who invested £5k as a tester. It soon came to notice that these guys really didn't have a clue. I kept asking for details of the money manager, but they would not tell me. Eventually they sent me a link to a trader on myfxbook called VSV trader. Seemed a little dodgy to me so I asked for the last 6mnths trading results as this page only showed up to Aug 14. Five weeks later and nothing!
Now I find out that the above Tom has set up a new company called Centretrade FX AND teamed up with Valbury Capital. He then rang my introducer and invited him to a meeting to meet Valbury. My introducer called me to tell me and, after telling them he should not have called them direct, Tom called me but told me my introducer had called him asking for the meeting.
It seems now that everything is going through Centretrade Fx and not Alfatrade who I signed up with.
Another introducer has submitted £150k of business and guess what? Not heard from Tom or his sidekick for the last few days.
I will be writing to the FCA to see if they would be interested in Toms activities, but wondered if anyone else had dealings with any of the above?



well i dont think so that such things exist !!!! so nope

Hi freddyfawcett, i have recently had dealings with Tom Harrington too, he has a company curently listed as HBFX Markets. A number of us are having problems and about to report to the FCA i would be interested in speaking to you to see if you have already reported or if you want to join in with us.

Corrected: Hey megabot, who even mentioned Pepperstone in this thread. What have they got to do with any of this then ? You feel the need to mention them. Its funny Tom Harrington has been linked to Pepperstone but no-one has mentioned this in this reply anywhere, so it seems a bit strange for you to reply this way. Can you explain the comments relevance or meaning.

@Freddyfawcett
Freddy my boy, you are posting very strange name of brokers companies. Why dont you try some of more reputable names like Fxpro or Pepperstone. they are not flawless but I would say solid.
