FOREX Broker-Dealers for the Professional and Non-U.S. Trader

When you are ready to enter the big time in FOREX, these broker-dealers are the gold standard of the industry. Dukascopy offers a unique centralized-decentralized clearing system, but is essentially a large ECN and has registration as a Swiss bank. An interesting article on this new approach is on in the January 2007 edition. It has enormous potential to revolutionize retail FOREX. They provide a wide variety of FOREX services and products under one roof. Their website was recently redesigned, vastly improving navigation, which had been an issue.

They offer both a Java and web-based platform. The recommended browser for the web-based platform is Firefox. The author did, indeed, have issues with both platforms on Internet Explorer. If you like their clearing services and trading platform, a great deal of customization is possible with two API packages. Not for small traders, the minimum account is $50,000. E-mail inquiries regarding sales were answered quickly on one occasion, and not at all on another. Customer service per se was much better. Definitely four-star if you can afford itâ
