I’ve got a prove from IC Markets to show that they did a stoploss hunting. I left my robot trading on the same server, same settings between demo and live accounts. My demo account grows 46% and my live account loss at 1%.
Left is demo account - Right is live account
Now I’m 100% sure that they’re NOT TRUE ECN broker because they’re obviously didn’t want to see your account grows for bigger commissions. What they wanted is to steal your money directly like a cheap thief. I’m in a doubt that they may just even pass our orders to another small companies/banks which they created/cooperated and called themselves a TRUE ECN BROKER while they put your money in their own hands and steal your money.
I also aksed for their tick data for 99.90% backtest and they just gave an excuse that the file is too big to record and forward me to another company to provide tick data, the real answer is NO they can compress it to be a really small size into few hundreds of MB, they may just scared of investigations, and for sure that they do manipulate prices by their robots. I think they’ll choose the accounts that make profits to let robots watch and auto stop hunting, also to trig massive slippage on those accounts 24/5.
I’m thinking about moving to another broker. I wish I’ll find an honest one. If anyone know an honest TRUE ECN broker which best for scalpers , let me know then I’ll be appreciate and thankful.
I did try LMAX and Dukascopy, but they didn’t work with my scalping robot on demo accounts.
