2 pip spread for normal trading or
1 pip spread if you choose to trade with commission (1$ per 10 000 units)
Not so worse, but much more stable..
Does anyone know if there is a place that lists ThinkOrSwim's average pip spread for all currencies?
I currently watch:
The AUD/CAD has by far the worst spread averaging 4-5, and on occasion 6pips. Plus, I just don't like it's fuzzy look. I wish ThinkOrSwim would put a search function for forex on their platform to search for low spread currencies. You would think it would be something they could advertise on TV.
any time i am looking for software or services i google...."top ten (or five) _____". there is all kind of reviews online so do a search like that. however, do not take one websites advice as some get paid to rank a service or software at a certain number. look at a bunch of them and then use you educated judgment.
I installed Oanda's MT4 and it's pretty cool. New daily candles form at midnight EST with Oanda, while other brokers use 5pm EST (I think). Does anyone know which is better, or used more than the other? I only look at 15 min and under with Oanda anyway, so it's not a huge deal to me, just curious.
Also, I've been trying to shop around for another broker but can't seem to find one that doesn't have a million horror stories about it. Any suggestions?
hm, bad News, (for me)
"OANDA is required by law to migrate "
Can someone tell me which law is that? A Us law or some how to screw the people bilateral cooperation..
It's probably because of the Dodd-Frank bill which restricts leverage for U.S. residents. Oanda's just keeping you guys separate from us so you don't have the same restrictions we do.
I have been trading futures for a while, and am now getting into forex. I use quote tracker, but have heard it is going away soon, and don't want to learn on something that is about to change. Anyone use quote tracker, and can suggest a chart provider with a setup similiar?? What are people's favorite charts? I really dont like TOS that much (at least for futures).
