ECN Forex Brokers

(No Dealing Desk + STP + ECN)

*To be able to compare commission rates, we list them all as "Commission per round turn (100K)",

But there are different ways of listing commission rates:

Example: $6.00 per round turn lot (100k) = $3.00 per side (100k) or $3.00 per 100K USD traded = $30.00 per million USD traded or $60.00 per million USD traded round turn = 0.006% of the trade

Do you know another NDD/STP/ECN Forex broker? Please suggest by adding a comment below.

Forex brokers: ECN vs STP vs NDD vs DD

Dealing desk versus No dealing desk order processing

DD — Dealing Desk — Forex brokers that operate (route orders) through the Dealing Desk and quote fixed spreads. A dealing desk broker makes money via spreads and by trading against its clients. A Dealing Desk Forex broker is called a Market Maker - they literally "make the market" for traders: when traders want to sell, they buy from them, when traders want to buy, they sell to them, e.g. they will always take the opposite side of the trade and in this way "create the market". A trader doesn't see the real market quotes, which allows Dealing Desk brokers (Market Makers) manipulate with their quotes where they need to in order to fill clients orders.

NDD — No Dealing Desk — NDD Forex brokers provide access to the interbank market without passing orders trough the dealing desk. With true No Dealing Desk brokers there are no re-quotes on orders and no additional pausing during order confirmation. This, in particular, allows trading during news times with no restrictions on trading.
An NDD broker can either charge commission for trading or choose to increase the spread and make Forex trading commission free.
No Dealing Desk brokers are either STP or ECN+STP.

STP — Straight Through Processing — STP Forex brokers send orders directly from clients to the liquidity providers - banks or other brokers. Sometimes STP brokers have just one liquidity provider, other times several. The more there are liquidity providers and therefore liquidity in the system, the better the fills for the clients.
The fact that traders have access to the real-time market quotes and can execute trades immediately without dealer intervention is what makes the platform STP.

ECN — Electronic Communications Network — ECN Forex brokers additionally allow clients' orders to interact with other clients' orders. ECN Forex broker provides a marketplace where all its participants (banks, market makers and individual traders) trade against each other by sending competing bids and offers into the system. Participants interact inside the system and get the best offers for their trades available at that time. All trading orders are matched between counter parties in real time. A small trading fee - commission - is always applied.
Sometimes STP brokers are discussed as if they were ECN brokers. To be a true ECN, a broker must display the Depth of the Market (DOM) in a data window, let clients show their own order size in the system and allow other clients to hit those orders. With ECN broker traders can see where the liquidity is and execute trades.

Broker types and revenues: fixed vs variable spreads vs commission

ECN Forex brokers always have variable spreads. Only ECN brokers charge commission for trading Forex. Commission is the only revenue/profit an ECN broker receives. ECN brokers are not making money on bid/ask (spread) difference.

An STP Forex broker is compensated through the spread (spread markups - to be explained in details below).

STP brokers have a choice of offering variable or fixed spreads. STP brokers route all trading orders to the liquidity providers - banks. These brokers, as intermediaries between their clients and banks, receive prices (spreads) posted by the banks on the Interbank market. Most banks, in fact, offer fixed spreads and are market makers.
An STP broker therefore has 2 options:
1. Let spreads be fixed.
2. Leave the spread at 0 and let the system take the best bid and ask from the number of banks (the more the better) and in this way provide variable spreads.
How an STP broker earns its money? Since STP brokers (as well as ECN) don't trade against their clients, they add own small markups to the spread quote. This is done by adding a pip (or half a pip, or any other amount) to the best bid and subtracting a pip at the best ask of its liquidity provider. All client orders are directly routed to the liquidity providers at original spread quoted by those providers while an STP broker earns its money from own markups.

Many STP brokers run a hybrid STP model: DD + NDD
Every STP broker signs a business contract with its liquidity providers (prime brokers), where the contract terms regulate the minimum transactions level which will be accepted by the liquidity provider. This means that all small orders placed by traders (usually those which are below 0.1 lot) cannot be sent to the liquidity providers, because they won't be accepted; and therefore such orders should be handled by the STP broker, who in this case becomes a counter-party for your transaction (Dealing desk model). If you trade with "Cents account" or a "Mini account", your STP broker is most likely always is a counter-party of your trades.
For all larger orders (as a rule, above 0.1 lot), the STP broker uses its real STP technology bridge & sends orders to its liquidity provides. With each transaction, the broker receives a portion of the spread.

Forex market maker - a broker with a dealing desk earns money on bid/ask difference as well as when a client loses a trade, since market makers are trading against their clients by hedging - entering in an opposite trade.

Conclusion:

ECN brokers are the purest breed among all Forex dealers. They don't profit on spread difference. Their only profit comes from commission. ECN brokers are interested in their clients to be winning, otherwise there will be no commission to earn.

STP brokers make money on spreads, thus even though they do not have a physical dealing desk to monitor and counter-trade client orders (unless its a hybrid STP model), they are still able to set their own price - the spread markup - for routing trading orders to liquidity providers and providing their clients with advanced trading services, lower account deposits, faster execution and anonymous trading environment with no dealing desk. STP brokers are also interested to see their clients trading profitable, so that a broker can continue earning on spreads.

Market makers make money on spreads and by hedging against their clients. However, if a client becomes "too" profitable, it can directly "upset" the broker. While this may be tolerated and professionally managed by a larger reputable market maker, with a smaller dealer such client will be soon asked to leave.

Benefits of trading with No Dealing Desk brokers

Among the main reason why traders look for NDD brokers is transparency, better and faster fills and anonymity.

Transparency means that a trader enters a true market instead of the market being artificially created for him.
Better fills are a result of the direct and competitive market bids and offers.

Anonymity means that there is no Dealing Desk watching who has come to the market and is asking for an order to be filled, instead client orders are executed automatically, immediately through the market network and totally anonymously.

On the opposite side is a Dealing Desk broker, who is able to profile their clients. In the worst case scenario, such broker can split clients into groups and put less successful ones on auto-execution and trade against them because on average they will lose, while clients that show signs of successful trading will be put on "slow-down" mode and can be provided with frequent re-quotes, slippage and/or slower execution especially during fast moving markets while a broker tries to offset own risks. The transparency of a Dealing Desk broker depends on the rules inside the company.

Forex Brokers aren't bad on general, whether a Dealing or Non-Dealing Desk, they aren't there to be against any particular trader. They look to make business, not just work for traders in terms of cooperation in the market environment. Many large Forex brokers who have lots of clients tend to try to help their clients become profitable as much as they can, but once a trading order is placed, its everyone for themselves.

with ECNs I always choose brokers who offer ONLY ecn accounts.
E.g. ECN/STP + Market Maker accounts = no
ECN/STP + STP = no
ECN only accounts = yes


BrokerGuru

August 11, 2015

as per our policy, we cannot divide brokers to "genuine" and "not genuine". I'm truly sorry.
A common rule applies to all brokers: treat them as if you are choosing a bank to trust your money to. What would be your criteria? Experience, reputation, size of the company, level of support, your own convenience with terms and conditions being offered.

While among technical parameters, every ECN broker must have:
- no dealing desk
- variable spreads
- commission on top of spreads
- 5 digit price quotes
- Market execution of orders
If any of those are missing from the list, it's not an ECN broker.

Forex Tamil is he scam fund manager?
Looks like he makes more money in www.evenforex.com ?
How it is possible? Let find out
The secret behind is Forex Tamil and Even Forex broker both are friends more over even forex broker marketing head and Mr.Forex Tamil both are from same place (India-TamilNadu) Even Forex is not regulated Forex broker so whatever Mr. Forex Tamil trade will tell to the Even Forex broker to manipulate it. At the end of the day i.e Saturday and Sunday clients can view his trade while looking at it even forex broker was manipulated according to profit system. Some trades you can see less losses and more profit
What is the befit for Mr. Forex Tamil?
Every time when he refers a client to even Forex broker he will get 20% of the deposit.
Is there any else?
Because of the profitable trade history will advertise or post it in social media such as Facebook to cover online training and some time will work as fund manager..
How much he cost for online training?
Around $2000!
In some case when the client requests a view/investor password he will provide to the client? In the mt4 manger he can identify whether any client view his account? When there is no viewer on the mt4 account, evenforex broker will manipulate into profit trades, that’s the secret.
www.eveforex.com and http://www.tradingwithtamil.com/ both are scam and fraudulent people don’t waste money

ATTENTION PLEASE! All new "traders" please read what trader at 27 september wrote!You will do yourselves a BIG favor!There are many voices even at reputable "Forex" Forums who try to point out that "retail Forex on margin" is the BIGEST FRAUD in history!

ALL, and once again ,ALL "brokers" are running bucket shops trying to get to small amount of money from people who need it the most!

You may ask why authorities do not stop this?Because: first they can not stop a free financial Enterprise .and second there is NOT a centralized market and the broker plays by his own rules.And legally nobody cannot do a thing, unless some drastic measures are taken.The so called REGULATION means absolutelly nothing.The only thing these cheaters ,sorry, brokers need is to maintain the HYPE around "retail Forex on margin".Like in a iantic pyramidal game!

Sorry to disapoint you guys but take your Money and run,dont look back,run faster,keep on running....

It would be interested to develop on what retail brokers are also able to do when a individual trader is making profit. I am surprised when I read that STP brokers "don't trade against their clients" and "are also interested to see their clients trading profitable, so that a broker can continue earning on spreads." because my experience shows quite the contrary.
I traded with a well known retail broker that is known for its variable but tight spreads.
Several months of learning FX, MetaTrader and MQL, and several months more of testing a complex automated system on a test account, until I opened a Live account and fired the stuff. Using a 2K margin, during the first 3 days I made 740 GBP of profit. From there, things started to change, with constant losses. Far less market data received, far less trades accepted right away, higher spreads than usual.
After analyzing the whole story (in particular comparing with the entire same system run in parallel on a test account, opening a live account with other brokers), I can only say that the vast majority of these brokers do marketing and not FX trading. They are more interested in finding new customers and making them use their whole margin in as many trades as possible, rather than helping them to stay and develop their trading skills.
I am now switching to ECN ones, that's for sure!

BrokerGuru

Dear Imran,

Markets makers and DMA are not the same.
- Market makers run a dealing desk & are counterparties to their clients' trades
- DMA don't have a dealing desk & don't trade against their clients

Same for ECN:
- ECN brokers don't run dealing desks & thus don't have conflict of interest with their clients

Most of them state of being regulated somehow feeling rather protect by it , there fore they present them selves as perfect trader, Please do not fall for this, being regulated it means nothing ! They run scams any times they wish . How to prove you have been conned ?
Lets start that all those company do use one elaborate software and connected to one big computer center that they share. very similar to any betting office . You are made to believe that you are trading direct with Stock Market possible Wall street or else; well you are not, You are dealing with brokers who are all using the same software. They can with the speed of light analyze your tickets and within second change the direction of the market at their convenience. For them it means more profit from the banks and from you , they got your money !
You are better off going to any casino , you have more chance.
The more people buy the same markets the more the price will go down , until you are forced to close your position.
I have studied my 100 open position while dealing with a broker cit index what is disturbing is that 97 % of them going long, the market went the opposite, and on 100 tickets 96 % of them going short the market went up in price.
So it shows that you never are in a winning situation.

At the beginning they make you win a little , then when you are hocked they change the switch . And you are history !. your savings has gone and you are destitute .
You where made to believe that you could made a few quid , or even to become rich overnight .
Its a scam

Also the chart that they show you are not 100% the same as the one of Wall Street !

of course someone has to be a winner otherwise who would want to go to a casino to lose all the time .

What is amazing is that the way they can manipulate a trade in such way to ransack money from small investors.Of course they are all connected and they have behind support of mega money and banks .

Everyday people are getting scammed, its the biggest fraud of the century .and its protected by the banks and Gov.
keep well away from those firms they all using the same software and all connected to an head office , their head office.
A forex company has a few names to fool people, but its the same company .

No comms, fixed spreads (regardless of how tight they are) is the 1st red flag. Because true ECN broker do not offer big deposit bonus, commission free account ect, Because they do not get this type offer from bank.
From my experience, if you can ask them a report showing the counterparty of your trade then it will be tru ECN. Based on this, "Goldboro Borex broker" would be a TRUE ECN because they can provide you that report if you want it. Also i am trading with them last one years ....
I have an account with them, so that's my story......

Hello Mates.
-I am aware that no one likes to propose which is the best ECN provider as (1) there are N number of real brokers and (2) they have to share their own experience.
-How about FxOpen and FXPro as ECN broker

FP Markets is DMA with 1.0 Pip spread for their FX accounts

Thanks for this service BrokerGuru

Thanks Neo!

Brokers who are listed as "ECN/STP & STP" - those are brokers who offer different types of accounts - some accounts are strictly STP, but other (more advanced and usually with higher deposit requirements) accounts are ECN. The technologies and order execution for each account type will differ within broker's order execution system.
It's also possible for a broker to offer all 3 account types at the same time - Dealing desk (usually micro accounts for novice traders), STP and ECN (for pros). Traders simply have to choose what works best for them.
Let me know in case I misinterpreted your question.

Hello Brokerguru

Great post, thanks.

You mention somewhere that some brokers run ECN and STP - could you explain how this works?

I understand the 4 types of ECN,STP, STP&DD, DD but the above is a bit unclear.

I am currently analyzing on my PhD thesis Retail FX brokers based on some proprietrary data I have access to and I would like exactly to classify the companies as best as possible.

Any support would be very much appreciated - if possible email me at kathitziotis.neophytos@gmail.com

Though being an unregulated offshore broker doesn't provide any advantage.

Dukascopy wont accept US residents, other than that you can inquire about account opening.

Click to sort the table columns for a quick list of brokers with $100 or less deposits (http://www.100forexbrokers.com/stp-ecn-brokers).

The policy of our site doesn't allow us to suggest brokers, I'm sorry. We strive to provide maximum facts and details about brokers, so that traders can compare them and make own choice.
Focus on broker regulation as another important factor.

Hello,

Would you add this forex broker: http://www.teletrade.eu/ to the list?

Thanks.

They have spread caps so they can not be an ecn broker. I have and account with IC Markets also and the pricing is much more pure. I think Armada also needs to work on their support I have issues with support staff that cant even answer basic emails.

I just moved from Armada markets to IC Markets and I am very happy. Armada was unreliable, servers crashed too much. IC Markets is very stable and reliable.

Is Roboforex a good broker or not. They claim to be ECN linked but they offer fixed spread on their other accounts. They admit that they have Dealing desk for smaller accounts and ECN for larger accounts. Is it possible for a broker to do such business and be reputable?

Hi, many of the lowest round-turn commissions listed are actually single trade price. eg
