softwarewise, oanda couldnt beat it's way out of a wet paper bag.
dont believe me?
cruise over to their forum and check out the mess that they are making out of their metatrader.
even a monkey could get metatrader right.
the new metatrader system that they rolled out makes all of it's trades thru the ever so fragile fxtrade and fxgame servers.
which means that as soon as somebody writes some really really demanding high frequency trading EA for oanda's metatrader that the odds are strong that this could bring fxtrade and/or fxgame to a slow crawl.
i am not sure who is likely to do such a thing, i will not mention any names.
it will all be done in the name of high frequency trading.
yes, we love oanda.
and, btw, when oanda says that it is working on something, dont hold your breath.
it is my prediction that oanda will soon be out of commission and bankrupt.
soon, meaning sometime in the next year or so.
and when they do go under, they are going to bucket shop their traders to death.
