Although ICM is not a ''classic bucket-shop'' broker, it is definitely a ''B-booking'' broker (i.e. betting against traders) skinning small retail accounts with their nasty ''virtual dealer plug-ins'' parasite software (as 95% of brokers do by the way).
I have hard evidence of it by running the same exact EA - on the same exact CNS VPS - on an ICM ''TrueECN'' (yeah, right, what a name...) account and on an ECNpro account at an FCA regulated London based pure DMA/STP broker. The difference is striking: the ICM account has closed December is LOSS and the other one in PROFIT.
Same EA, same settings, different brokers...
