My strategy fits ECN accounts as scalping is more accurate with lower spreads, but with this I find that commissions charged can cause a bit of unbalance as the ea is making decisions based on pip profit or loss of each order.
I understand that we cannot have everything ( I wish I could) but I am looking for more opnions without heading towards fake ECNs that will run trading through the dealing desk.
At the moment I am trading with Yadix, I started on the scalper account that has raw spreads from 0.1 and a commission of 1 pip per lot. Now I have built my balance to over 5000 so I have the Pro account has additional Liquidty and lower commission of 0.6 pip, which I think makes sense from the perspective of true ECN.
I understand that the broker also liquidity, bridge and server costs so this commission is not their net profits.
So is a broker that offers 0.3, 0.4 or 0.5 pip ecn commission too good to be true, should I suspect that they will run my trades through the dealing desk and give my startegy problems if I continue to make money?
Any feedback will be grateful as I am happy with Yadix, but wouldn’t looking for a back up option for low ecn commission
