I currently have a sizable account with IC Markets (over 10k USD) and was personally impressed with their execution speed and low spreads; I even entered into an IB agreement with IC Markets based on the following:
- Low spread and slippage (especially with respect to the EUR/USD pair).
- Fast execution.
- Strong ASIC regulation.
- Lack of a dealing desk or market making component; IC Markets is never an unhedged counterparty of the client so there's no conflict of interest; it doesn't bet against you.
- Use of segregated accounts.
- Consistent 4+ star rating at the Forex Peace Army despite a sizable volume of ratings provided; almost unanimously good reviews elsewhere.
After an extensive review of their qualities I decided that they were a broker I could put myself behind, and fully recommend to others with confidence.
I of course certainly encourage you to verify the above first hand for yourself. The following are good examples of the sort of thing that lead me to my association with ICM:FPA Reviews: http://www.forexpeacearmy.com/public/revie...cmarkets.com.au100 Forex Broker Reviews: http://www.100forexbrokers.com/reviews-ratings/icmarketsForex Brokerz Reviews: http://www.forexbrokerz.com/brokers/ic-marketsMyFXBook Spreads: http://www.myfxbook.com/forex-broker-spreads
Getting down to brass tacks, I've managed to obtain for my referrals a $1.55 / RTL (Round Turn Lot) rebate for their ECN accounts; to the best of my knowledge, this is presently the highest rebate rate thus far offered by any IB for ICM. Rebates will be discounted from the cost of your commission in real time (reducing them to $5.45 / RTL down from $7.00 / RTL).
If you're interested in signing up with me, use the following link to set up a new trading account:http://icmarkets.com.au/AP.aspx?ID=1541&EID=6522384
Once done, please be sure to confirm your enrolment by e-mailing me with your name and account number(s) at [email protected]
This makes certain that you're getting the rebates you'd signed up for.
Certainly let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
Cheers and happy trading!
