Hi Matthew,

We have noticed hyperactivity on your live MT4 account, the details for this are below.

Account #: 850397

IP Address: ###.###.###.###

Server Messages: 29936

An account is considered hyperactive (Metaquotes guidelines) when it exceeds 2,000 server messages per day. Activity above this level can be harmful to the server, especially when several clients are hyperactive at the same time. The most common reasons for hyperactivity are:

1. Orders being modified by an expert advisor every tick

2. Orders being sent to the server when there is no money in the account

3. Faulty logic and or settings in the expert advisor causing over trading (and usually losses)

4. Running multiple EAs and signal copy services on one trading account

Please check your account and make the changes necessary to bring your server messages to less than 5000 per day. If we do not hear from your within 24 hours we may block your IP address to prevent unnecessary load on the MT4 server.

Kind Regards,

Doris Zhang | Asian Desk Manager | IC Markets

Yeah, I hope what I said was not misconstrued; instead of paying $7 / RTL commission, Standard accounts have +1 pips added to their spread. This spread increment is clearly displayed and disclosed on IC Market's site per Narayan's link.

There is nothing scammy or underhanded about this.

Roller's video isn't in dispute, it's just that the minimum spread that applies for Standard type accounts is not shown; there will always be spread of at least 1 pip above what is advertised for Standard accounts.

it is not dispute ! Any broker have execute orders by ASK-BID / Open-Close price . But not with +1 hidden pips. And this fact killing EAs strategy calculations

TOTAL HIDDEN SCAM


Roller, for your information the +1 pips spreads you are talking about( Or Bid- Ask difference, however you may term it) is Not Hidden like you are saying, as i said explained earlier it is clearly mentioned in ICM's official site https://www.icmarkets.com/forex-trading/trading-conditions/spreads/. What exactly is your issue? You should be appreciating the fact that you got a spread of 0.9 pips which is actually better than the 1 pip advertised spread.

Your order was executed at less than a pip (0.9) and fast as shown in your video, this is good for a standard account, so I don't understand the issue.

Sorry, I just hate it when people that don't know what they are doing lose money and blame anything or anyone else, Especially the best broker I've ever used!
 

Don't listen to and follow the BS online.

Hi Roller,

As your account is a standard account, I'm sure you are aware of the fact that the minimum spread itself is 1 and average spread is 1.3 for usdjpy, check their spread page here https://www.icmarkets.com/forex-trading/trading-conditions/spreads/.

So when you entered second your second buy, the bid line was at 101.986, the ask line should have been anywhere from 101.996 to 101.999. However, your Buy order was placed at 101.995 which is a spread of 0.9 pips, which is better than what they are actually advertising.

i just want them to show real spread and must be like this at any TYPE of Account (with or without comissions) of any Broker:

my ASK = price of Close SELL at curent moment and current price
my BID = price of Open SELL at curent moment and current price
my BID = price of Close BUY at curent moment and current price
my ASK = price of Open BUY at curent moment and current price

Because their Standart looks like scamm
Also my robots can not calculate zero level of orders.
