It’s important for every trader to monitor all the related news and make market decisions in accordance with that.
If using ECN brokers can protect you from requotes, I don’t think a trader should refrain from using an ECN broker. While avoiding requotes, you get the benefit of transparent pricing. Best of both worlds for sure!
There is no point of refraining from ECN brokers.. So far all the ECN brokers I have used have proved much much better than the non ECN brokers.
HIGH RISK WARNING: Foreign exchange trading carries a high level of risk that may not be suitable for all investors.
Leverage creates additional risk and loss exposure. Before you decide to trade foreign exchange, carefully consider your investment objectives, experience level, and risk tolerance.
You could lose some or all of your initial investment. Do not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. Educate yourself on the risks associated with foreign exchange trading, and seek advice from an independent financial or tax advisor if you have any questions.
