Which broker is the most reliable and how would i be able to search which one suits me best.

There are several factors to consider.
Is your broker STP or ECN?
Regulation
low spread
Speed of execution of trades
Also withdrawal process.

If a broker can satisfy all these points, then its worth considering

Picking a broker

When picking a broker I agree with most of the points previously stated.

Regulation, spreads, execution are all key aspects.

One major point i think is overlooked is the level of customer service provided by a prospective broker.

From a personal standpoint I find this as important as spreads etc, you should be able to speak to someone 24hrs while the markets are open, not just via live chat but on the phone. Some brokers will also offer a personal relationship manager for your account for a certain account size, this can be a major help.

Only consistent profitable trading can be used as a true indicator of broker reliability. The only problem between you and broker can be conflict of interest and if your broker use counterparty to hedge your orders then there is no conflict of interest between you and broker and you can rely on them.

Beware of brokers who are regulated by unreliable authorities such as Etoro, these guys are fairly new on the scene but I have heard some bad things about them on various Forums, such as people being unable to withdraw money from there trading accounts(regulated in Cyprus). I think it best to stick with brokers that are regulated either in the US or by the FCA. There are plenty of platforms starting up everyday.
I am starting a blog and will make the subject of regulation one of my next posts

FCA and US brokers also take their clients for a ride but make it in a more sophisticated ways. IMO we can trust only to experience so have to gain it more, not wasting time reading feedback, listening to complaints, etc.

I don't think it unreasonable for brokers looking for business to offer perks such as indicators etc.

I don't think regulations matters too much if you can recognize that you're not trading with a bucket shop prior to opening the account. Spreads matter, execution matters, withdrawals matter, support matters. Test with a smaller amount if you're not too confident in the broker and let them build your trust.

I am still waiting on KPMG to pay out for Alpari(UK)'s bankruptcy. Been about 2 years now. So it's not just brokers one has to worry about.

Did you have account with them with money left there? I wonder any of their clients (non-uk) was able to get their money back?

Yes I had an account with Alpari (UK). Not of much value but you would think they ( KPMG ) would get on with it. Maybe they are pocketing the interest on the money ?

Still waiting. KPMG are really slow. Much too slow for an international company. I don't suppose they will even offer some interest. Maybe there is some authority to kick their backsides ??
