Well I thought I would ask the question lol, Anyone have any experiences with GFT uk, I opened a live account with them once before but never actually traded with them. I closed the live account and they transferred the money back to me within three days. They were quite good in that respect.

About ECN/stp. Read alot over the last couple of months. Many brokers boast ecn some stp. I mean alot of arguments and counter arguments about how truthful a broker is about the way they pass orders through. Many have a dealing desk some are mixed.

GFT dont claim to provide stp or ecn. They state clearly they have a dealing desk. So would you trust them? Will they manipulate market data, run stops et? Or generally is that a thing of the passed with regulated brokers. I just keep thinking that a regulated well known broker run stops. All these other bucket shops who claim stp or ecn actually probably worse?

Any thoughts on the matter would be helpful. Is a market maker such a bad thing to have a dealing desk? I am already sure that its very difficult to ascertain whether a broker who advertises ECN/stp is actually a true ECN broker.
