etx used to be called Finspreads---- enough said ...
Stay away from the company
Decided I had to prove address and ID to conform to money laundering regs, didn't email me, then froze my account. It took me a great deal of time and hassle for them to finally sort themselves out and get it right, (I live in Asia) but in the meantime, I'd had an open trade that was profitable turn into a loss because they wouldn't allow me to close/adjust the trade!! Very annoying. I could go on, but their service and trade platform is all very poor.
I'll stick with Oanda
Very large spreads to catch the unwary
Massively uncompetiitive compared to other platforms. Steer clear IMO.
A decent platform to start off on
Pros just about way up the cons
The major issue I have is the charts. There are large data gaps on day and weekly charts and you are unable to save your charts in a workspace which is realy annoying.
They recently split nymex into 2 markets; Daily and Intraday. They did this withought warning and they removed nymex from my watchlist. I had to figure out what they had done as no info was sent out. This was very poor service.
The spreads on nymex are prety good and the spread band is a nice touch.

It is also easy to navigate.
Glossy on the outside... poor after a while
Recently Stops have not been triggered.
Ts and Cs say stops are not guaranteed which is fine if the market was particularly volatile.
However, when stops fail to be filled in what most would consider normal market conditions there is a problem.
Also, every email generated when placing a trade confirms that a trade has been accepted and executed.
Except it has not and they will adjust for any mistakes that they have make on pricing despite confirming orders have been filled and executed at stated pricing levels.
In short you cannot reasonably guarantee where you are with them.
The trading platform is reasonable but lacks much sophistication. Pivot Points for instance seemed to be calculated from 12 midnight not market opening which is terrible for resistance and support plays and not indicated anywhere.
I feel that I have wasted a lot of money by not looking around and trying other suppliers. My advice is avoid.
Good luck with your trading.
Better SB Firm than the majority
Quality platform, never personally had any issues with execution very limited slippage.
VGood customer service.
- Crap charts and wider spreads on some FX
In my opinion the positives far outweigh then negatives compared to others and am still using them
poor service & spreads
High spreads, terrible service and opaque pricing Look elsewhere.
