I opened account in IC Markets April 2012. 1. Low spreads 2. Very high commission. FXOpen NZ has better spread and lower commission 3.There are few deposit/withdrawal options. 4.There is Moneybookers to deposit funds, and there is not Moneybookers to withdrawal funds. It's really stupid.
I have experienced excellent support, narrow spreads, and since moving to a live account, I have only experienced slippage on my very first live trade, but I believe it was due to a connection problem at my end.
In ECN account, commissions plus swaps can be quite high for a small account like mine, but the very narrow spreads at least offset much of this.
Very happy so far, after 1 week live, and 2+ months demo trading.
