Hi!

I'd like to collect list of MetaTrader-based brokers, so that I can write fxfisherman to suit each broker, because different broker uses different rates. Some brokers tend to use different timezone too.

In short, which MetaTrader's broker do you use in real-money account? Don't forget to include their website URL.

I can find only two brokers: interbankfx, and alpari. (I'm now a bit disappointed that most metatrader-based brokers are small-medium firms, but I hope big firms get attracted by new MetaTrader 4. )

It's worth to tell you that FXCM and RefcoFX offer API too, but only for person who has more than $250,000 in the trading account.

GFTForex also offers API for client who has more than $100,000 desposited in the trading account.

My favorit MT broker is InterbankFX. In fact I have been to their office a long time ago. They also host a local Forex group that meet weekly in their building. They are very nice and honist people.

After we get a list perhaps we could do a vote, to help Scropion decide on priority of which brokers to do first.

I have played with www.oanda.com API along with www.gaincapital.com API. I would be glad to help Scropion to intragrate these once things are off the ground.

Great! Personally, I love Oanda the most. They offer very attractive spreads to me. The small spreads during non-breakout period work best with my scalping system.

Good work! Can you research more? Are they regulated and reliable?

I based my research on google :-P but I have seen the fxdd pop up numerous times in different languages so that must show some reliability. SNC I am not sure of but I might go check out their office one day and drive up there during the weekend to see where they are placed.
