 ... and there are 'false ECN Brokers'?? ;-)


For smaller lots and losing traders - in effect - they are 'false ECN brokers', i.e. they trade small lots and losing traders' trades 'in-house' by 'B-booking'. They play the casino inside the casino.

There is nothing wrong about providing in-house liquidity (i.e. 'B-booking') if done HONESTLY without using ''virtual dealer plug-ins''. Unfortunately, 'in-house' booked trades eventually and always get the infamous 'virtual dealer plug-ins' parasite software sold by dozens of vendors on Forex Expos. Please see the introduction from the manual of a plugin vendor attached (unless Admin removes it).

These 'plug-ins' are applied by brokers usually 2-3 months after a new client arrives, so these traders get 'comfy', less vigilant and carry-on their initial good impression. But eventually the 'honeymoon' is over... Should the client be CONSISTENTLY profitable and/or trading LARGE lots (i.e. 50+ lots) they are moved to the 'REAL ECN', i.e. 'A-booked' group, so the broker can - legitimately - claim being a ''TrueECN'' broker - at least for these clients...

How do I know...? I talked to a few owners of brokerages and industry insiders who had 'confessed' these facts to me. Some even admitted to not having any Liquidity Provider connection at all, i.e. 'B-booking' and 'plugging-in' EVERYBODY.

The only way to see the real impact of these 'virtual dealer plug-ins' is running the same exact EA from the same exact VPS simultaneously and checking the total pip gains after a few weeks (on older accounts, i.e. not in the 'honeymoon' period). That is what I have done, and seeing the striking difference between the accounts' performance was the tipping point to move most of my funds from ICM to a pure ECN - FCA regulated/FSCS insured - UK broker.

'Offshore' Tickmill or 'FCA' Tickmill... Big difference....

I guess it has been 'offshore' Tickmill as they just got their FCA approval recently. So you have been a brave man sending funds to an offshore broker which could ''fall off the Internet'' with all client funds...

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...

Could you send me some proves of your claim. I would like to confront IC Markets with this as I am also using an EA, which generates some small profits. Thank you

@drago

Sent you PM (it would not be ethical to advertise another broker in this thread). Please let me know if you had not received it.

I was with pepperstone. I was getting frustrated and decided to leave. Since a month I'm at IcMarkets, it is truelly way better!

I currently moved about 9 of my accounts over at IcMarkets. No nasty re-quotes, or gaps or any other weird surprises!

I'm happy I moved over to IC Markets 😄

When systems get deleted, it's most likely because they blew up. Humans aren't normally as shy if they're successful.

You are in the 'HONEYMOON' period with them... After you get 'comfy' (3-4 months) they will gradually introduce their arsenal of 'vortual dealer plug-ins' to your account. Just wait and see what happens in March-April...

Me and my friends have been through that 'HONEYMOON' period with many B-booking brokers...
Its not only ICM, but ALL B-booking brokers...
