I kept thinking I made a mistake that I started my trading career with this brokerage. About a month ago I decided I was sick and tired of all these spreads that were eating up to 50% of my profits.
Dang, I was mistaken to try another broker, that's for sure.
Spreads were way better. Twice as low probably. Yet, after I had a few slippages there that nearly drained my test deposit, I decided that was a good lesson.
Brokers probably dn't charge spreads for nothing. If that's the only mean to make money for them - hey will be rather painful for traders. On the other hand, you can be sure this is the ONLY mean for a brokerage to make money. Whicih if a comforting feeling, isn't it?
In any case, I just wanted to let you guys know that for mid to long-term trading the broker suits nicely. I'm not sure about scalpers, I guess they need to trade futures or something...
