O can try their luck, we're not beholden to one set of parameters or circumstances. I'll make my trades random, see how they cope with that. Drive some poor programmer nuts while he tries to figure it out.
But I don't believe O is stop hunting or anything else. I'm happy with them and will build a business around them. And I must say, I don't really believe 98% of these 'the broker did me in stories'. If I see the level of skill out there, just shocking.
I mean if I had a HFT system and they started doing stuff like that I'd just put in a delay and a random one at that. I don't see brokers as a problem as a simple adjustment will sort it. In your friends case god knows what he was doing, as their aren't many HFT strategies, especially in FX, but if he couldn't make that adjustment then probably shouldn't be trading HF.
No demo API, $600 a month, and 2 or 3 months to get yourself together before they start charging, then they offset trading volume to cost.
Oh, it wasn't that difficult since they had a lightning fast feed (from HotspotFX if memory serves). So it was arbitrage - until they started making real money. I know another fella who worked at the MorganStanley HFT center. Machines analyse the orders sent by other banks' machines. He said it's all about the microseconds. Milliseconds is too slow in their world. But I'm not into HF really, I just heard the stories ... and maths, no, not my world either.
Oanda is good but not what it used to be - platform goes down during news, spreads sometimes remain wide for so long - does anybody remember EURUSD 0.9 and USDJPY 1.0? I do. And they just can't fix the simplest issues in the platform. I reported a few, I got a polite acknowledgement and nothing happened. I bet they don't even have an IT department, they're just outsourcing the development and maintenance.
Good luck with the 'money machine' - 10 years of teamwork and $850 a month (plus the server hosting I assume) - quite an investment.
Do you have a deadline to get it up and running? How long do I have to wait to invest in it? 😄
<b>A Beautiful Ambient A Glimpse into Our Hearts - A Reflection of Our Souls Author: Elkart Coetzee Every once in a while a thought-provoking book comes along, so powerful, that it stops us in our tracks. A story that simply cannot be ignored. A Beautiful Ambient is such a story. How much this story can teach us is limited only by how closely we are prepared to listen. All journeys teach through experience. This one is no exception. Robert Put... more »ter has to learn about himself, and his humanity, through the eyes of a dolphin. He has to learn the value and power of being human, and the tragedy. It takes courage to face humanity in its entirety, with all its contradictions and idiosyncrasies: its compassion, kindness and empathy. Yet also its cruelty, greed and indifference. A Beautiful Ambient will take readers on this journey of self-discovery.</b>
