I have to say that Alpari went bad...a few years ago it was the good broker, but now on a platform there is slippage, requotes are very frequent...When I wrote to support in order to clear up a situation, we never came to anything in the end, they always responded with a learned phrases!!
That is why I decided it's time to move on... Now I'm working with fxopen and limaforex. There are no problems
I have been trading with alpari and gainsy also for some time already and I do really consider them to be good broks. Taking into account the fact that I do trade with big amounts, for the moment I can not confirm your words regarding slippages, requotes. I think you have to add printscreens for people to trust you, you know this is serious accusation in respect to broker. And in case it is really so, we have to know that for not to get into similar situation. For now all I can tell is that I have always my questions answered and controversial issues solved with help of theirt support, people are very attentive and willing to help there, I like it, I like their attitude to work as well as to clients in particular, are very polite
Trading stopped today around noon. In the news and on their hompage I can read they went bankruptcy due to missing liquidity when the SNB dismissed the 1.2 barrier for CHFEUR. Too bad. I hope not to loose all my money there.😡

they said your money is segregate on their company bro, so I think yours and other alpari uk client's money still safe.. maybe just wait to alpari resolve their lack of liquidity problem then you can get your money back.. we just can hope..😞
Via Alpari Special Administration's claims portal, I applied for compensation from the FSCS, which is the British compensation. They accepted, and I got all my money back yesterday. Nice circumstance: my EUR claims were converted into USD with January exchange rate. In the mean-time, waiting for compensation, I earned a nice amount due to EURUSD decline.
Btw: The new Alpari broker isn't the one, that went bust. And I believe the new one isn't covered anymore by the British FSCS. The British FSCS was the main reason in the first place for me when opening an account at Alpari (back in 2013).
