I trade since a long time. I teach other ppl how to trade and recomend brokers here and there. So we tried out IC Markets again after 5 years. But i have to say even on demo account on MT4 we get disconnects around 1-2 x per DAY!!! While fxcm, aafx and so on we have to compare because we splitt the money, every other brokers hasnt disconnects. I cant recomend IC Markets because it has disconnects of sometimes 15 minutes or longer. Only help is to scan again for other servers. But this isnt a solution for me, because i want to be sure that my trades run in TP or SL while i am away from keyboard. The spread is okay on demo, but the commission is high in my opinion. Often i had it too that i wasnt able to make a trade manually because there wasnt a connection or something, i dont know but this is really terrible to trade even on demo.
