How to determine whether the platform is safe and reliable?
At the end of last week, many fans asked me how to identify the foreign exchange platform.
No matter what regulation is not regulated, we will teach you a simple and crude method. Bloomberg will search the name of the platform on the terminal to see how many users there are. Because the formal platform needs to do risk control and hedging, so many traders must keep in touch with the bank investment bank in real time in such a big booth, so it must use BB chicken, and making phone calls will definitely not work.Therefore, according to the number of BB, we can infer the completeness of the manpower and facilities of a platform trading department.Personal experience of more than one page belongs to reliable, sporadic 1 or 2 belong to at least in the business, none of them do not explain the garbage..
There are also a lot of personal comments asking me what ECN STP is better and so on. I once again emphasize that there is no ECN STP in retail foreign exchange margin. All platforms are positions with LP.
Even many large platforms will set up another LP company for their own business, which will be used for their own platforms and help other companies to handle their positions.The only difference is whether the platform you use is to take your own position or to just leave it all to another banker.The so-called ECN STP NDD is a marketing slogan to deceive Xiaobai and half hung employees, so we should not be caught in this mistake again.
Finally, I would like to reiterate that any overseas license is useless for retail investors in China, and any ECN or STP is also useless. The foreign exchange speculation of retail investors is specially designed for retail investors, which is different from the real foreign exchange market..
A platform should provide good services and should be stable. You are right to say that it doesn’t matter if the platform is regulated or not and I believe as long as the trading conditions are suitable, it is okay to go with it. Like I’ve been trading with some brokers that fulfil my trading needs which are low spreads, commissions, fast withdrawals, good customer service. And in all these regards, Oanda, Fxview and TDA are good choices.
I believe demo trading is the best way to check whether the platform is good to go or not. Demo gives a brief idea about broker’s offerings. Even I tested fxview on their demo account before going live with them.
You can use this criteria: The legality of the broker, Company address is real, Forex award winner, Customer review about this broker, Bonus and promotion, Easy to WD the profit.No restriction to use EA, scalping, hedging..etc
