As far as LMAX is concerned check this ... in FPA itself ... Lmax will not appreciate you business. That is being said to me with these words exactly. Along the years I was Lmax partner, retail trader and corporate account holder. no mater what hat I had with them, Lmax always reply with mannered hostility, throw responsibility back you, and show no appreciation for your business with them. Maybe they are not the nicest people to work with, but same with the technology they provide. In summery lmax provide lowe technology service for traders, for partners (no back office) and for clients. Their MT4 platform is by buggous bridge solution, unstable and very fragile. their native platform is very basic GUI. Lmax provide lower count of trading instrument, even lower on their MT4. where with MT4 they use extension .lmx which makes it difficult to load charts history onto your station. Only advantage lmax is famous for is their low trading commissions, but one should note that swaps rate are relatively expensive then other brokers After being proven again, again and again with the same symptoms along few years, I decided to stop my activity with this. For me low commissions are not worth low quality on everything else.
