Noting the number of problems there ....
Can anyone give a basis for choosing a broker, and that no one is based solely on marketing?
I would love it, but I do not know either ... I watch a lot and investigate, just that. I see if it is regulated, and I look for opinions.
Greetings, thank you!
I choose my broker differently. First I check their regulations and trading platform (cross platforms like windows, mac, android, ios).
I prefer MT4 , so I contact live support and make sure they have a server nearest my location. And I prefer those broker has single account types rather than variety of accounts.
And then I focused on Spread and Swap rates for major and non-major pairs, Futures, and others.
I choose smaller firms because they care about me. Big firm like FxPro and Pepperstone has higher spread for cross pairs. FXCM doesn’t allow hedge.
I am trading with Hanseatic broker, I am overall happy though their live support can’t address all of my issues (mostly server related) and I had to email their support.
