I think your assumptions are up-side-down. DEMO is never as good as REAL. When there is REAL money on the line the priority to resolving issues are much greater. In DEMO it's... well.... DEMO... so there is NO REAL money on the line. Sure they try to keep the services running well, but when things break-down (as they always do) in DEMO it's NOT first priority.
Just a word of advice.. never judge a broker by their demo environment.. always judge by a LIVE environment.
That being said, I use the ECN-LIVE and it has been one of the best experiences I've had using a Forex broker. The spreads are extremely tight, and the execution is top notch. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a good broker.
I do hope that they take the fight to the CFTC, as they may be the only ones in a position to do so.
'Just a word of advice.. never judge a broker by their demo environment.. always judge by a LIVE environment.'
.. yes it's obvious. But test in LIVE ENVIROMENT means that you can lose REAL MONEY if the broker is shit. So before, I must be convinced that they can run a demo server where everything is fake and there is no reason they should not work.
FXopen can't do that.
This morning I re-opent MT4 fxopen active trades ... try to trade ... fxopen again connected
but don't execute orders --activetrades as any other broker .. execute.
' but when things break-down (as they always do) in DEMO it's NOT first priority.'
Yes true, but why yesterday , today any hour ..the things break down ? ... good broker? 😲 non this isn't the 'point' .. nothing break down ..only bad servers.
So if you have money to lose for a REAL test try fxopen ..otherwise stay away.( THE difference beetween actvetrade-fxopen results at now is around 40pip)
I have posted comment about this test only because this test surprised me ..it's the first time in 10 years that I find a so extreme bad demo mt4 ..and now I can say that yesterday was not an exception .
