With Forex trading, the brokers constantly advertise "no commission". And, of course that's true - except for a few brokers, who do charge a commission similar to stocks. But also, of course, the brokers aren't performing their trading services for free. They too make money. The way they do that is by charging the investor a "spread". Simply put, the spread is the difference between the bid price and the ask price for the currency being traded. The broker will add this spread onto the price of the trade and keep it as their fee for trading. So, while it isn't a commission per se, it behaves in practically the same way. It is just a little more hidden. The good news though is that typically this spread is only charged on one side of the transaction. In other words, you don't pay the spread when you buy AND then again when you sell. It is usually only charged on the "buy" side of the trades. So the spread really is your primary cost of trading the Forex and you should pay attention to the details of what the different brokers offer. The spreads offered can vary pretty dramatically from broker to broker. And while it may not seem like much of a difference to be trading with a 5 pip spread vs. a 4 pip spread, it actually can add up very quickly when you multiply it out by how many trades you make and how much money you're trading. Think about it, 4 pips vs. 5 pips is a difference of 25% on your trading costs. The other thing to recognize is that spreads can vary based on what currencies you're trading and what type of account you open. Most brokers will give you different spreads for different currencies. The most popular currency pairs like the EURUSD or GBPUSD will typically have the lowest spreads, while currencies that have less demand will likely be traded with higher spreads. Be sure to think about what currencies you are most likely to be trading and find out what your spreads will be for those currencies. Also, some brokers will offer different spreads for different types of accounts. A mini account, for example, may be subject to higher spreads than a full contract account. I have been using the same broker for over 5 years now and am very happy with their service and returns.📷 source:-https://smartfxtrader.com/

So this has been bothering me for a few days. Last week I saw a trade setup on tradingview I placed on my MT5 account with my broker. Now that trade hit the stop loss but as it was a tight stop, I lost very little money and I thought it was legit until I checked tradingview. The wick on the bar that hit my stop loss didnt exist on trading view but it was huge on my chart on MT5. Is this some sort of broker game to scam people and take their money?
I just found out the broker Pepperstone, very low spread, ECN account, ASIC FCA and FCB regulated, but take commission. I would like to know: -Does it takes commission on lost trade ? (i suppose yes) -What is the round turn meaning on commissions? -Does this broker seems fine by your standards? any negative thoughts? Thanks a lot for futur replies
Hi. I am left with some extra money every month, I will try to learn trading on FX market and I am just wondering if anyone can recommend some reliable broker. I have been trading with forex.com for couple of months just small trades and I made a decent profit on shares of a certain company, same day they took all the profits away and my initial investment too. Claiming there was a mistake in pricing. Anyway I consider it a dick move, me paying for their faults... That is under investigation but I do not feel conmfortable trading with them any longer. That is why I am asking for an advice
How does a Retail B.roker execute its client's orders?
If I submit a buy order with a dealing desk broker, does the retail broker also have to submit a buy order with their liquidity providers, in order to offset my buy order? Or can it simply take the other side of my trade?
Forex trader switching to futures - please help me wrap my head around pricing/fees
I'm a somewhat experienced forex trader but I feel like the advantages of a more tangible/centralized market and volume information are too significant to pass up, so I'm trying to make the switch to trading futures. I have experience charting with Tradingview, so I'm particularly interested in opening an account with AMP and trading through TV, but there seem to be a lot of different fees in futures to consider versus forex, so I'm having a hard time figuring out exactly what it would cost me to trade that way. It's my understanding that if I want to just stick to E-minis, I'd be looking at the $10+1 per month fee for the CME data feed and the commission (plus CQG route fee and exchange fees) per contract per side. Are there any other fees or considerations I'm missing? Is this an adequate setup for trading ES?
Hi, i am 23 right now and have been investing in stocks for a while. I'm currently using DBSV for sg stocks and Saxo for US stocks. Is IBKR better for US stocks in terms of overall fees ( Transaction, exchange rates, etc) if I have less than 100k invested and incur the monthly $10 fee? Really appreciate replies as i'm on a dilemma right now!
As the title says, I’m looking for broker recommendations for high frequency trading in Canada. I’m open to recommendations based on anything, whether it’s rates for live market data, commission fees, access to historical data for backtesting, or whatever else you feel makes the broker competitive. Looking to trade forex and stocks.
I created this thread to have a laugh with other traders, during the first half of my learning process I have trusted a few gurus with signals that ended up just being people writing fake testimonies with bots , this one trade on AUDCAD was a complete flop and he make bots say how much money they got from the trade meanwhile everybody in the chat took a big L😂 what are some funny stories that you guys have?
Instagram forex traders will not make you successful.
I feel like I need to have a rant. I have been trading for just over a year now and I have just started to become profitable. What made me profitable? Blocking out all of the rubbish that comes from forex Instagram. I didn’t find a fancy new strategy. I’m using the strategy that I formed in the first 3 months of me trading. So why only now am I starting to become profitable when I knew about the strategy almost a year ago? Because i chose to digest information coming from instagram forex traders. I’m not talking about the obvious scammers you see on your Instagram feed such as IML, broker commission marketers, or any of the likes. I’m talking about the select few that portray themselves as trading veterans and are popular in the trading community. They are constantly posting on their stories/profile 24/7. At least once a day they will post something like ‘only 2 slots left In my mentorship’ or ‘come join my free telegram channel’. Warning: if a trader you follow is trying to promote something, even if it’s just for Instagram followers, unfollow them. They will not help you become successful. So I had my strategy by month 3 of trading. I backtested it and it worked. But I started taking advice from these traders, I got my hands on a few of their courses and my trading began to fail. Every single course was pathetic. Never showed any live trading. No proof of anything. Always making excuses of why they can’t tag their MyFxBook. I unfollowed all these ‘traders’ and now I am profitable. Rant over.
So I’ve been using Trading212’s CFD platform and yes while it is very user friendly and I have no problems at all other than the spread size on certain stocks. Even $NVAX has a $1 Sell buy spread which is a lot when you have 1k contracts. The spreads are just completely unacceptable and it’s literally daylight robbery. Can anyone recommend a CFD broker that has tight spreads, low commissions and a wide variety of instruments? I’ve tested IG’s CFD demo and the commission is just stupidly high on US stocks. Thanks in advanced.
What forex website should I learn on with a demo account?
I'm new to forex and trading in general, and I want to try a demo account out on a website that supports USA. Which one would be best for this? I was looking at a website called libertex888, but they don't support USA, and I'm not even sure if they are trustworthy. I like libertex because it allows you to trade in other stuff like precious metals, crypto, too, so if there's another website like that I would be interested. Unless those websites charge too much commission, etc. Hoping for some good advice, thanks. I want to learn and demo a website that I can use when I start using actual money.
Trading Educators. If you're new how you should see them & why their students defend them even if they're not profitable
As the smart people in trading communities know; Most educators are frauds there's always a narrative that they're experts in the business but they're never track records (third party verified) or live trading statements to back it up. There whole model is to create conflict of interests with the trader to shill courses, services and '70% accurate signals' and even recommend brokers for commission using Introducing Broker agreements or Affiliate links. If you're new to trading regardless of the asset class i'd view whoever wants to teach you whether you pay for it or not as a business teacher; They have no success in business (The Majority) But they're legally able to teach the theory regarding business... Why people back gurus up: #1 They feel like they're in an elite community lead by success; sadly newbies are often mislead #2 They buy courses/services and they feel like they have learn't something such as basic risk management, price action, support and resistance etc, wyckoff theory, all which can be found online. #3 When their victims fail they often blame themeselves because so many of their students back their favourite traders no matter the scrutinity/evidence. #4 Their students sign NDAs with the Trader before getting access to Trading groups & Materials so if they discuss anything or they will get punished (Inner Circle Trader ICT) Is a fake forex trader who does this practice. #5 The person defends the guru for not selling anything although he has affiliate links, promotes people or something else such as brokers or prop firms... Example of a poor brainwashed forex trader: I watch raja lives (Wicksdontlie) If uncle ted is there n dropping knowledge I soak it up U literally can’t say rajas faking it bc it’s all there the trades he takes what he loves off of Anything can be faked especially in the forex industry just look at my recent posts on daytrading or forex and you'll see. Don't fall for these 'Educators' who need you to buy there courses for 100s to thousands of dollars and sell signals for a subscriptions if you do the numbers you'll find out for yourself their incentive: YT channel 40000 subscribers sells a $500 course assuming 2% of his audience buys his course 800 people that's 800*500 that's $400000 easily made and completely passive many offer additional services such as signals and more for a fixed subscription ex. $25 a month if 2% of his audience subscribes to it that's 800*25 that's s cool $20000 a month and yes they may get less than a 2% conversion rate but 2-3% is average and even if 1% participate that person makes alot of money very easily...

BE CAREFUL WHICH BROKER YOU CHOOSE! SERIOUSLY, what is YOUR opinion for LONG-TERM INVESTING using EToro VS Trading 212: Invest ? Or even Trading 212 ISA...
Now, I’ve been practicing with Trading 212 (both investing and trading) for years but didn’t start investing money because I was underage. DISCLAIMER: When I was younger, I thought day trading was “the way to go” to make a lot of money (for some people it is... for me it really isn’t). I luckily figured this out before I bought some “day trading guru’s course for ONLY $299”... fucking bargain btw👌🤯 ...not I started actually investing in March, and for whatever reason (can’t remember) I decided to go with EToro... BE WISE ON WHO YOU CHOOSE !
Let’s start with the NUMBER OF STOCKS.
Trading 212: Invest - 3012 stocks available Etoro - 2037 stocks available And the stocks that Etoro doesn’t have aren’t just foreign stocks like ones listed on the foreign stock markets like FSE or LSE. They also have US companies “missing”. This becomes very apparent when you find some “great” companies to invest in for the long term and they aren’t even listed. THIS IS ANOTHER THING - they also dictate who you can invest in. For example, I wanted to invest in Spire Healthcare back in March/April, and even though they have it listed, it won’t allow you buy any shares... STILL TO THIS DAY??? ( if anyone knows why, let me know down below please )
Trading 212: Invest - 446 EToro - 151 - although they do have ones like SPY, VOO and VTI
Trading 212: Invest - Min deposit - EUR 1, USD 1 Deposit fee - none min withdrawal fee - EUR 1, USD 1 Withdrawal fee - no fees Commission - commission free, unless you buy UK stocks, then you pay 0.5% stamp duty reserve tax because... the British Government can do what they want 🤷♂️ EToro - Min deposit - USD 200 - first deposit, afterwards USD 50 ( I never even realised this lol ) Deposit fee: none Min withdrawal amount: USD 30 Withdrawal fee: USD 5
•Trading 212: invest - as little as €1. MOST BUT NOT ALL shares can be bought fractionally as some have a min trade quantity of 1 share. •Etoro - min amount to open ANY POSITION is $50, defeats the purpose of fraction shares ???? 🤔 🚨——> Now there are a COUPLE ISSUES with this... But the main issue is a more PERSONAL ONE. I’m sick of having to think and buy my family things that don’t want or need for birthdays or Christmas... So I buy them a share, of a good company that I think is a good investment. Sometimes I DO NOT want to spend a minimum of $50 😂 Call me cheap lol but I’ve got pilot school to pay for... and it’s EXPENSIVE.
Social Trading -
Now Etoro does have CopyTrading. Personally I’ve never used it because I prefer to have an influence over who I invest in, whether it’s the right choice or not. But for some people, they prefer a more “hands-off” approach, so it is good for them. ANOTHER POSITIVE FOR ETORO - on their app for each company you can chat with other users, and people can post their latest thoughts and research on the company. Trading 212 doesn’t exactly have this but they do have a similar feature which is a forum separate to the app.
I personally prefer the layout of Trading 212, especially when looking into the graphs, or even trying to find out what your ROI is. It’s a much more user-friendly interface, in my opinion. Etoro doesn’t offer the ability to transfer open positions to another broker... which is shit. Trading 212 will be implementing the ability to transfer from/to other broker by the end of 2020 (supposedly). Also, Etoro’s customer service is actually really helpful, with their live chat feature. And doesn’t take too long to connect. ————————— Just to top it off - Trading 212: invest - you can get a free share worth up to £100 So IN MY OPINION I would 100% go with Trading 212 for INVESTING, and that’s why I’m switching I only invest, I DO NOT day trade, use CFDs, swing trade, trade commodities, trade forex or (currently) invest in cryptos This is why, imo, I believe Trading 212 is better than Etoro Let me know what your opinions are! Also let me know if I’ve missed anything
Commission in forex trading can either be a fixed fee – a fixed sum regardless of volume – or a relative fee – the higher the trading volume, the higher the commission. A commission is similar to the spread in that it is charged to the trader on every trade placed. The trade must then attain profit in order to cover the cost of the commission. Forex commissions can come in two main forms ...

Generally, commissions in forex trading are paid in relation to what brokers and dealers call "the spread." Currencies are traded in pairs, and currencies are typically offered on trading platforms at an "ask" price and at a "bid" price. This means that the broker or dealer will sell a currency to a trader at one price (the ask price), and buy the same currency from the trader at a different ... Trading forex offers an exclusive advantage over other types of trading: reduced fees and commissions. This is due to the fact that most fx brokers charge a variable commission on the spread rather than charging fixed or percentage fees on the value of the trade. They can also charge a fixed commission per trade, though this is less common. Some Forex Brokers offer the commission model for Forex Trading. First of all, I have to say from my experience that a commission account is always cheaper after my test. Instead of an additional spread, you get the direct market spread for your order execution.
