I hope this is not going to happen again! I deposited a large amount about 4 weeks ago. It was extremely difficult to have the money deposited and it costed me a lot (exchange rate/wiring costs/...). So now the news is that I have to do this 2 more times ??? wiring back home and then again to the new broker... Pffffwt.
I was about to invest in you @BP33 the other day when all hit and got in chaos. So i will certainly follow you where you are going, hopefully we will soon learn what new broker you have found. Peace out.
just joined like 3 weeks ago... and although the first couple of days were pretty good, it is unfortunate to see that BP33 decided to cut open trades at a loss, not wait until at least breakeven - and ultimately a loss for my investment. very small percentage though, so not really complaining, but like jajest mentioned, pulling the money out, transferring it back home and to a new broker will all add to the cost. keen to see where you are moving to.
@teodosy87 - could very well be - but Alpari went belly up when the Swiss bank pulled the rug last year on their USDollar peg.... lots and lots of people got seriously hurt then.. for me they are blacklisted as they dont have protection/compensation against potentially disastrous events like that.
@BP33, I've been following the post about this account 1 or 2 months ago. As you're going to move to another broker, do you know when the account will be ready for funding? Because I'll have spare money to invest in middle April.
