When it comes to the EURUSD pair even Boston Prime is unable to beat ICM most of the time as MyFXBook will attest; I still have yet to personally encounter a retail/non-institutional broker that offers more competitive spreads with regards to it.

And yes, the cTrader negative spreads may not allow you to turn a profit in and of themselves, but they'll obviously make any system more profitable, especially high frequency scalpers with low per trade pip expectancy. I'm pushing to have my EAs ported over to cTrader's code at the first opportunity.

So you mean ICM is better than BP most of the time, even though myfxbook shows otherwise?

I take it you are speaking from personal experience. wink

@Surrealistik You aren't confusing Boston Prime with Global Prime are you? (considering your bio mentions GP)

I contacted the support a couple of days back, prior to open an account, they confirmed there will be no limitation on open trades.
 
Here a statement from there FAQ section.

'Is there a limit to the number of open positions that I can have open at any one time?

No, you can have open as many positions as you like at the same time.'

Should there be a limitation, I'm as quickly off, than I joined them.

As soon the funds are on the account I let you know.


I am glad to hear they seem to have changed their attitude to the maximum open orders limit. I enquired earlier this year about my demo account (which at the time had over 600 open trades) and I asked them why they permitted this. Angus (IC Markets) responded that they 'make exceptions', but from what you say perhaps they now permit this... the question then remains: what is the new maximum limit on open orders?


I would say no limit at all, I had today up to 1300 open orders, on another broker, finally I found out I was logged in twice into my VPS lol, all went well so far.....

Most of the time I've seen ICM with better post-commission spreads than BP; occasionally BP offers better spreads, but as a rule, ICM does come out on top with respect to EURUSD in particular. Further, if you factor in IB discounts (which aren't available for BP so far as I'm aware), I've almost never seen BP offer better post-commission spreads. Even as it stands now, with IB discounts factored in, ICM offers a lower overall spread (and if you discount commissions entirely, ICM's spread is always lower).

...so taking commission into account, you are not going to profit simply by buying and selling at the negative spread levels. But it would certainly help make a HFT or scalping EA more profitable. smiley

And after all my research, it seems IC Markets is hard to beat in spreads. Only Boston Prime seem to beat IC Markets by a slim margin! Impressive! cool


agreed even cost like 0.4 pip is amazing

However.........a disconnection or outage is another story.

Check your mt4 logs around the time of the news event you mentioned and look for extended disconnections or outages.
Check your trade logs around the time of the news event and look for anything out of the ordinary (poor fills and slippage excepted and expected at news times). If you feel you have a valid claim copy the logs into an email to support and request the trade or occurrence be investigated.


Yes, actually it seems to be a common occurrence with the signal I am subscribed to. I don't understand it, but on a frequent basis I can see that my account loses connection with the subscription service, and then resumes connection within a minute or so. Is this commonplace for a signal from www.mql5.com?

I have sent support the log for today showing this issue, and I hope they will get back to me with an answer tomorrow.


It sounds like an issue with the connection to your mql5 signal provider account. This is a third party that you choose to use and the broker will not take responsibility for issues or losses sustained in this case. The problem is between mt4 and mql5 service not mt4 and the brokers server.

So my account got funded today, and I put the EA live on 6 pairs, it took a few hours, and oooohhhh wonder, stucked @200 Trades.

Hereafter the conservation I just had with the live chat.

Hello Humpenjang. How may I help you?

Marc Hi, prior to opening the account, I contacted the support, and they told me there is no max number of trades. The same is stated in you FAQ, currently I'm stuck at 200 Trades.

IC Markets SupportHi just a moment please

200 per account at any given point in time is the max ( including pending orders) . This is a server side limit

Marc Just copied from your FAQ section

Is there a limit to the number of open positions that I can have open at any one time?

No, you can have open as many positions as you like at the same time.

IC Markets Supportunfortunately due to server side changes this had happened
and the entry in the FAQ needs to be corrected ( we will do so)

Marc So that means, I'll try clean up that mess and go packing. Thanks for wasting my time.

IC Markets Supportyou can close all those orders 'now' and we can refund the amount

i.e. if you close them now

Marc Thanks, but I guess I shut them one after one, should be become a small profit at least ;-). Anyway thanks for your help.

IC Markets Supportyou are welcome and apologies for the inconvenience.

if you have a chat transcript for the conversation with support - it would be appreciated if you could forward it to support@icmarkets.com

i will request the accounts team to credit 68 EUR to your account during sydney business hours
