What I like in trading with AAFX - variety of opportunities. Company provide ECN order execution, so it's only mediator, as it can't interfere with trade. Standard ECN goes with varialbe spreads, but there's also Fixed account and VIP accounts. VIP account starts with $20,000 and offers some additional opportunities, including lower spreads. However, the variety of accounts is not the only one advantage - broker is also good when it comes to minimum deposit (starts at 100 dollars), leverage (up to 2000), assets (more than 150, including commodities, stocks, ETFs and indices), education and making deposit/withdrawing - bank cards, wire transfer, e-wallets. Moreover, withdrawals go with 0 fees and are executed in 2-3 days (my own experience). Expert Advisors are allowed, as well as algotrading. So, if you're looking not just to time-killer, but for real place to trade and combine strategies, AAFX Trading may be really good one.
