  • I wouldn't trade with either company. They should make money as they skim the spread and bet against their customers; go stop hunting and pushing out "fake" bid/asks to trigger stops on their platforms and many of the other FX tricks that shady FX shops do.

     

    Avoid as a trader, and as an investor take profits quick on run-ups cause they will certainly do so.
