Tymen, thanks for the recommendation, I did a little digging on the web for reviews of GFT and other brokers, all brokers seem to get the same reviews i.e. they all seem to be crooks and people don’t recommend you using them.
Typical comments about all brokers seem that their servers slow down, their support gets bad, their spreads get wider, your trades will suffer from slippage, you can’t get your money out when you want, your stop losses have problems and you can’t get your money back, they have hidden charges, the prices are delayed… the list goes on.
Literally every broker review seems to have the same bad reviews, it is truly a veritable mine field out there when trying to pick a broker who hasn’t already ripped someone else off.
I am in the UK and it seems the safest bet is to go with an established bank like Barclays, anyone here had any experience of Barclays or can recommend a broker that does not come under the classification i detailed above?
