Solid ECN Broker Comparisons

I have a high volume scalping EA and am reviewing some ecn brokers accounts to choose the best one for me.

I am comparing the Yadix ECN account and the IC Markets ECN account as my two favourite accounts to compare, both are offering spreads from zero pips on EUR/USD, IC markets has EUR/USD from 0 pips and Yadix has several more pairs with zero pips, Yadix Gold and Oil spreads are excellent and the indices are very low too. Both accounts have teh same low ecn commissions.

My next comparison is execution and slippage, with Yadix I am being executed on a small test account anywhere between 7ms - 20 ms and some low level slippage, positive and negative which is a good sign for true direct to market execution.

I never tested IC markets yet, can anyone advise on slippage and execution speeds before I invest the minimum to try?

It would be cheaper to just ask them.

IC is great, Yadix looks scam, my personal recommendation is Нotforex and Tickmill

no issue with Yadix so far, what's the attraction with Tickmill?

Hope you won't encounter any issues with them but I read some big rip-off alerts over the last year (Russian and Malaysia guys) so discreet approach is recommended there.
Regarding Tickmill they moved towards restriction of trading conditions and tougher audit acquiring FCA license a move towards serious business I would say. Platform works good.

Yes retail forex becomes more and more regulated. FCA and CySEC already applied 1:50 leverage and its even better as it keeps you from fast losing. Making profit is a second task after saving your original deposit so I believe is a good move. With tickmill's superb platform for scalping I think its a best choice in terms of balance between safety&cheap fast platform. Although do your own diligence before putting your money anywhere because we can be wrong as well.
