    A good lesson. NEVER deal with unregulated brokers.

    Yes, totally "different" companies got bankrupt in 1 day.

    I also got an email from 3TG:
    We would like to inform you that 3TG Brokers initiated an investigation regarding the trading activity
    that took place on 06/24/2016 on the managed accounts. Until further notice, we would like to ask your
    patience. Upon any arising information we will keep you updated.
    Classical Ponzi scheme collapse, it mostly happens in summer, just when everyone is withdrawing profit and some of their deposits for the vacation. Unfortunately, not all investors and even companies I told about this listened to my warnings. I suspect there were at least millions of investments, even some companies invested in it. Investment world is full of scam, and sometimes investor should dig deeply to discover such schemes.

    Hi Dynamic,

    Unfortunately I didn't write it in English. As a quick recap, I can tell you the following:

    1. Any investment company+3TG is a Ponzi scheme with 95% certainty. I've spoken to many people deep in this area, and this conclusion is common amongst them.

    2. Private trading conditions at 3TG are terrible in most cases, which only confirms the conclusion above.

    Yes, you'll need to mention Think Huge Ltd as the IB when opening an account.

    The best thing to do is to email us at support@forexsignals.com, let us know which broker you'd like to open up with and what the deal is with the other IB so we can ensure you're on the same, or better deal.

    Thanks Littlemax, I really appreciate it!

    Sorry Nick I wasn't intending to steer business away from ST, I just used HFT in the past before I joined ST in fact

    If you're going to use a rebate provider like HFT group, Payback FX or Cashback Forex I'd appreciate if you can give us the opportunity to match the deal and come under our IB.

    You'll get the same exact conditions, and you'll be helping support this site

Or ask directly via the ticket system "Can you switch my account #### to HFT, please." Not online chat and not not too many explanations. I'm almost sure it will work without a problem. The are ready to help.

    Code:
    IC Markets.AUD = 7.00    = $4.96
    IC Markets.CHF = 6.60    = $6.55
    IC Markets.EUR = 5.50    = $5.90
    IC Markets.GBP = 5.00    = $7.60
    IC Markets.JPY = 650     = $5.28
    IC Markets.NZD = 8.80    = $5.71
    IC Markets.SGD = 9.00    = $6.33
    IC Markets.USD = 7.00    = $7.00
    ;--------------------------------------
    IC Markets.AUD = 5.50    = $3.90      via HFT
    IC Markets.EUR = 4.30    = $4.61      via HFT
    IC Markets.GBP = 3.70    = $5.62      via HFT
    IC Markets.USD = 5.50    = $5.50      via HFT
    Katja, when you say HFT, is that an Introducing Broker ?

    First: I'm a IC Markets customer since about two years. You might say I'm biased but I wouldn't agree. Anyway.

    I deposited money in different ways without any problems, I withdraw money in different ways without any problems. This means direct transfer, Global Collect transfer, and broker-to-broker transfer. Both directions, in and out, flawless. A transfer from Europe to Australia 3-5 days, a transfer back even quicker, just 2 days.

    You are right that the customer support sometimes has no clue but this is a typical problem not only of IC Markets but in general of many e-commerce companies once customer support gets sourced out to cheap labour. You can write directly to the support desk (via ticket system) and get more helpful responses which doesn't mean that their online support is bad in general. For example I just asked the regular online support and they put me through to the trading desk and entered positions manually on my behalf because I had no access to the platform and a news event was looming.

    They try to do everything to run the trade servers as reliable as possible. Just a few weeks ago they added about 10 more trade servers around the world to really make sure that no client suffers an outage. My VPS hosted terminals are running 24/7, even over the weekend. Again, no problems.

    An interesting detail emerged in late September. They started a public one-month-demo contest on a big forex rebate site which is hosting fx contests all year. IC Markets managed to attract the most people ever there for a contest because their winning criteria was not the typical gambling scenario (biggest percentual return on account) but it was the best return-to-drawdown-ratio. Now this tells a lot about a broker if they say we don't want to give gamblers another free ride but are only interested in realistic results.

    Finally, they offer a leverage of 1:500. Now, isn't this for loosers? How would that help any trader?

    It helps you in that you can run a pseudo seggregated account which is impossible with US brokers or brokers only offering 1:100.
    An example: You have a 20k account and look for a safe place for your money. Now I say the safest place for your money is under your pillow, don't you agree? That's exactly what IC Markets allows you to do. You transfer only 2k (and put 10% at risk) and use this money for trading, as with a 1:500 leverage it's still way too much to trade with all of it. Your money management still calculates with 20k but your real money never leaves the place under your pillow because those 10% are way way enough. Now you have a 100% garantied SL of 10% with no way of it beeing not respected or violated.

    Just do what the big boys do. They don't calculate a return on account (as is done here all over the place), they calculate a return on required margin and then they put that margin into their trading account ready to lose it but not a penny more.

    Looking for a safe place for money means not to put the money at risk in the first place. You need good execution and a good backoffice with quick and reliable transfers. And of course you only want to go with commissioned accounts, you want the broker at your side and not at the opposite. Said that, you can reduce commissions with IC Markets by about 30% for example with HFT and still get the same conditions. If you like AUD nominated accounts even a bit more.

    @LMAX: In between there are special offers so you don't need the big accounts anymore to start with them.

    Katja
    Thank you very much for your detailed post. Do HFT offer for current accounts? I will need to open a new account with them with new details.. ahhh..

    I heard of LMAX but you need like you mention a good capital to trade on their servers.

A bit suspicious and I know coming here would enlighten me. further.
