ECN Broker compatible with Trading View platform

Out of all the platforms I’ve trialled I really like Trading View. I’ve got a new Mac so not compatible with MT4 or 5. The only downside of Trading View is there are not many compatible brokers…

Ideally I’d like to use an ECN broker but the only one I can see is compatible with Trading View is

Anybody have any suggestions?

Unfortunately, there’s no such thing as an “ECN broker”. It’s marketing jargon.

Is there a specific reason for your need to “use an ECN broker”?

Thanks for the response Pippo. From what I’ve read I want to avoid Market Makers as they take the other side of your trades hence looking for an ECN or No Dealing Desk broker.

This is a list of brokers compatible with Trading View:-

Any out of those you could recommend?

For retail forex brokers, due to the small trade sizes, the broker will have to take the opposite of your trade and be your counterparty.

A broker can have access to an ECN, but that doesn’t mean that you, the client, have access to the ECN. More likely, this “ECN broker” is still taking the opposite side of your trade, and then hedging its risk in the ECN (or with another liquidity provider).

What’s important is if the prices you’re quoted are competitive and if you can get filled at that price (or better).

Just because the broker takes the opposite of your trade doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re evil. For retail FX traders, outside of futures, this is usually the only way to speculate in the FX market (because retail traders lack the credit relationships).

Yes, potential conflicts of interest arise but that’s why the regulatory jurisdiction where the broker operates is important, as well as execution quality and transparency by the broker itself.

Look for brokers who are regulated in the US, UK, EU, AU, and SG. You’ll filter a lot of shady brokers due to their stricter requirements.

From these brokers, see if they share execution quality reports.

And test drive their customer service to see how responsive they are.


Thanks Pippo that’s really helpful and I appreciate you taking the time to post!
