Is any broker safe knowing this?

Best to go by reputation, I guess...

They can't do that if you are trading something through an exchange. Forex or spreadbetting you're wide open to this type of abuse. Remember more than one big player has been caught abusing slippage lately.

So I guess you really can't trust any of them. I really want to leave spread betting but being able to trade small sizes is the reason I use it.

If this happened so much as to cause a real problem there would various
discrepancies between brokers charts all over the place, the spikes would
need to stay in place for the broker to refer the client back too. I seem
to remember a thread on T2W that tried to do that and failed. Does anybody
have any examples?

You can't trust any of them but staying away from forex and spreadbetting is a good start, unless of course your broker 'borrows' your money from your segregated account and blows it, but that's another subject entirely.

So why would that functionality be built into the software? Different brokers charts do differ, the excuse being their have different liquidity providers.
