I have opened an autotrade account at Pepperstone and at ICMarkets too. Actually Pepperstone performed better, so I decided to close my ICM account. I requested a withdrawal via bank transfer. There was a problem with their website, but they solved it in 1 day. I got my money (with 5% profits) back to my bank account in 2 working days.

Hi Sur

is it possible to take your signuture rebate while I had opened live account over HFT Group 1.50 direct discount?

Good observations Steve, thanks for collating all that data and research; I very much look forward to your slippage report.




With regards to the cost of trading at ICM, it can be further reduced by a discount of $1.55 USD or equivalent / RTL over the standard $1.50 USD / RTL per my signature. I definitely invite you to take advantage of this for your test accounts.


As a client of ICM I can tell you first hand that the platform freezes when they were an issue were due to overcapacity; the broker's client base grew too large, too quickly, and the servers were getting overwhelmed. Since new servers came online and were fully rolled out, I have noticed that the freezes that were previously complained about are no more.

So far as the support issues go, nothing especially notable has come up for me personally short of a substantial delay with Global Collect's local bank transfer service which was essentially GC's fault. Either way IC Markets is aware of this perception, whether right or wrong, and there does appear to be a genuine drive recently to step this up per my correspondence with Angus Walker.

Manipulating reviews? No idea. Can't confirm or deny it. Has anyone provided proof of this?



The swapping of IB's is frowned upon by most brokers.
If an IB refers your business to a broker then your business should remain with that IB.

IC Markets put a cap of $1.50 on commission discounts available to clients through their IB's.
Obviously this is not being observed by some and I will be taking steps to remedy this situation :)

Hi Jon

Actually I was aware of that situation. To be honest my request was not fair. at least I should not do it in public.
I only wanted to know if it could happen. Actually I will be more happy if it does not happen. this shows brokers honesty.

anyway, btw I put your name here in my post & happy to see you here. Lets see if ICM also can make the same jump as Pepper actually completed.

trade well

Hi Jon, welcome to the thread. Please note that this is not an invitation to swap IBs, and I do not condone this practice. Further, IC Markets does not permit any such swapping. I was not aware of steve's enrolment with an IB at the time he made his query about getting my discount. The intent was to communicate that I offered a higher than standard discount, not to 'poach'. Please PM me for any further discussion to be had on this matter.


Getting the thread back on topic, Relaxtrader if I might ask, which autotrader system were you using at ICM? The difference in performance may well be due to feed discrepancies which favour that specific system rather than superior trading conditions; I strongly suspect the former given after-commission spread comparisons.

I must disagree sir.......the member clearly asked about securing a larger discount while making it clear he was an existing HFT Group client.

'is it possible to take your signuture rebate while I had opened live account over HFT Group 1.50 direct discount?'

You invited him to take advantage of the higher 'reduced' discount as advertised in your signature.

'With regards to the cost of trading at ICM, it can be further reduced by a discount of $1.55 USD or equivalent / RTL over the standard $1.50 USD / RTL per my signature. I definitely invite you to take advantage of this for your test accounts.'

As I stated earlier.........steps will be taken to address this :)

Please note the chronological/posting order of the posts you are referring to. I must insist on further discussions taking place via PM to avoid thread derailment.

With all respect.........if you are happy to promote your IB deal to HFT Group clients, I will insist on the right of reply.

Jon, per my PM to you, I agree I should have showed the courtesy of being explicit about ICM's no IB swapping policy sooner than I was, and I apologize to both you and steve for this. Furthermore, I entirely agree with you that clients should remain with their initial IBs regardless of broker policy out of a sense of propriety and fairness; it's only right.

Above all, it is not my intent to knowingly promote my IB deal to the existing clients of other IBs.

I sincerely hope that there's no hard feelings.


I'm definitely interested in hearing more details Relaxtrader; if the greater performance was due to better trade conditions as opposed to differing feeds, I would be surprised.

Further, how long did your Autotrade account run at ICM?
