Just got an email from IG Index about their new "Insight" platform.

Anyone tried it yet? I'm not sure whether it's replacing their existing charts or maybe any additional chargeable option?

Guess they are competing against Meta Trader dealers because you can add most of those things to the MT4 charts with indicators etc.

IG want to do everything except add automation I suppose because they rely on a steady stream of sloppy have-a-go harry's.

Looks like SLM/GKFX are widening their spreads (on top of the variable spreads that we already have to put up with).

Here's the email:


Dear Client

Please be aware that from 1st February 2012 some of our standard FX spreads on our FX/CFD platform will be widening by up to 0.3 pips.
These increases will be made variable rather than fixed, so that they may revert back to what they were.

This is in response to market liquidity and global pricing issues, and we still believe that we will be able to offer some of the smallest spreads available in the retail sector.

Regards

GKFX/Smart Live Markets

Ive not had this, maybe because I dont do big money with them.

As an aside, has anyone been using the much touted Alpari new SB service? Ive been holding out hoping they might do a freebie offer, but not yet. Had loads of e-mails via this site trying to get me to sign up.

I'm interested in the Alpari SB service too, but much like you I'm waiting for an introductory offer.

Will be interesting to see how it compares to SLM. Not good having SLM as the only option when it comes to SB with MT4.

I have the alpari SB demo account. Seems pretty identical of SLM as both are MT4, just different spreads.

If SLM spreads on the majors get to within 0.2 of a pip of Alpari (and with EU and GU only being 0.5 pip higher on Alpari at present) then this will pretty much put a nail the in the coffin of SLM for me, offer or not.

Also Assuming the ALpari data feed is identical for CFD and SB then I am led to beleive that Alpari's datafeed is more reliable and accurate than SLM's anyway.

I've been using Alpari SB since the start of the year and so far it's been fine. I usually trade the daily TF so the spreads aren't of such importance as on the lower TFs, although I've found them generally reasonable.
