I am hunting around for a forex broker atm. I have been reading through various threads on here and other forums with special regards to GFT, i couldn't find that much on aussiestocks. I saw in the annual 'stockie's awards that GFT markets was rated as the number 1 forex broker in Australia. Upon reading this i did various research and the broker does look very good especially with its dealbook 360 software which looks like it's in a league of it's own. Although on various forums i read that there were alot of dodgy happenings when clients tried to withdraw money form their accounts. Also i have heard about spreads being widened when a trader turns profitable and constant requotes aswell. I am new to forex game and am diligently hunting a good broker. I want to use GFT as they trade futures and CFD's all on the same platform, have good leverage and the software looks top notch. Although the reviews i have read are shocking to say the least but then i see thats 'stockies' has them as the number 1 forex broker in oz. I am confused to say the least. Most of the reviews i read were a little outdated and i wonder if much has changed with them. Can anyone with any knowledge about GFT or anyone with prior experience with them as a broker give me a rundown on your experiences with them good or bad.
FYI i am looking to trade CFD's (doesn't have to be with the same broker as the forex broker I am looking for, i would like to cross capitalise my FX with CFD's though) and a forex trading system similar to scalping i guess but i plan on being in trades from 10mins to an hour or two so i guess it's not scalping in the traditional forex sense with regards to trading price differences between brokers. Pips i guess are important but i would like a reliable broker with a damn good software platform if possible.
