They were very good broker. It is not true anymore. They are in deep s*it. Servers are offline so you can't close trades when profitable. They are not able to explain what's going on. They do not communicate at all.
guys I on MACD EA on ibfx its good its keep updating my SL if I goes to profit...... but If i on EA then MACD can do automated trading? There is any option If i on macd and SL automated but not aut trading...
Good broker - for MT4 standards. Fast order execution, but spread on the high side (for EURUSD mostly 2.1, but I am getting getting good rebates 😄). They built some additional gimmicks and scripts + indicators in their MT4 which are quite useful. I intend to stay.

My bad. I wasn't paying too much attention aparently. 😲

If 95% of all forex traders lose money trading forex -
IBFX's micro accounts allow the use of nano lots. Their normal accounts only allow a minimum of micro lots. About 90% of forex traders are unsuccessful....meaning they are either losing money, or breaking even over an extended period. Just thought you should have the correct info.
Full speed ahead to IBFX. No hoops to jump through - as long as your demo accounts are trading, they don't expire. They don't pull the rug out from under you on your demo accounts.
Today I lost 4 Alpari U.S. demo accounts on myfxbook (two are a week old and two are about five weeks old). I have a live Alpari account. This is not the first time.
In my attempt to restore these accounts (because they are still working on the Mt4) myfxbook cannot link into the 'credentials' of my (Alpari) demo accounts.
Alpari techs and Alpari customer service claim they don't know why this has happened.
Note to Alpari U.S. IBFX is a much better broker for these reasons: 1. Better customer service 2. Better functioning demo accounts 3. Better nano lot accounts (oh, wait, you DONT have nano accounts) 4. No issues with Mt4 Build upgrades.
If 95% of all forex traders lose money trading forex - then would it NOT be good business to help them out? Come on - give them a break! Give them nano lot accounts and give them demo accounts that don't expire!
So far, I have traded with FXOpen (micro and ECN), FinFX (STP and ECN), FXCM (micro), and IBFX. IF you disregard the leverage and no hedging limitation to put all brokers on equal ground, IBFX has proven to be the best. I don't get requotes, they are FAR faster than everyone else, and they have great support.
Another feature I quite like (that i just recently discovered) is the autochartist software that is free with their MT4 platform. Very useful for assisting with technical analysis across many different currency pairs and timeframes. I know there are other companies that offer this software to their clients, but I just happen to be with IBFX.
The ONLY downside to IBFX that I would consider a downside is their wide spreads. That said, their wider than average spreads are probably the reason for the fast execution of orders.
