searching for best trading company

this has probably been asked before, but im new on here so wouldnt know where to look.

im currently using capitol spreads, they very kindly recently dropped the margins on a few instruments (although they didnt mention in the email that they increased it on quite a few others).
the thing i find very annoying is the way they slow down the response rate or cut the connection completely in times of quick and large price movements.
many times ive been trying to make a few quick trades to take advantage of news releases etc only to find the trading window hanging. ether i cant start a trade or stop a live one. it happened again last night, i missed out on what would have been a quick 65 pips purely because of capitol spreads restricting trading for a few mins.

i was originally with city index but moved to capitol for the same reason but have realised they are just as bad.

is this normal practise for eveyone or are there some companies that dont do it, or at least not to such a degree.

All the SB firms are crooks. Some a bit less than others.

Fo shizzle, but IG lies near the top for "least crooked" SB firm.

Have a go at using Trade Fair, 1 pip spread on EU and I have had no problems with them closing trading. For quick scalping their platform is quick and easy to use and easy on the eye!! In fact I have made money from their pricing being out of sink on EU at times i.e. market moves up 30 pips and their prices stays low.

My main account (and 80% of funds) will always remain with IG Index though...
