LMAX Global The FCA regulated broker for FX

REST vs FIX api?

Are there any retail brokers out there that provide a FIX API, specifically for Forex trading? TD Ameritrade looks like it only offers a REST API. I know LMAX does, but their capital requirements and fees may be a bit too high for me. Does anyone know if there is a huge difference between them if I am just starting out (I know this is probably strategy dependent)? Is it worth it to try and use FIX or should I just start out with IB/TD?
(I also understand that a good amount of crypto exchanges offer a FIX API, but I am specifically asking for Forex trading)

The team posted their results for Q1 2019 profits in this article:
Some more info on revenue:
Firstly, I am not part of the team, so any replies are just from research I have done into the project and available information:
1.) The team confirmed that there are 40 people working for Genesis Vision 25 are working in the office and 15 remotely. Jump in the TG if you would like to know more info or even talk to some of the other team members direct. Dmitry Nazarov = CEO, Ruslan Kamensky = Head of Development. (You can do your background research on these guys, they've got skills).
2.) Can't comment accurately on funds, because well, that's the teams business. Ofc a responsible investor should try and find out as much info as they can however.
  • The ICO raised -> $2,836,724 when ETH was around $250-$300 pre-bull run (you do the math).
  • The team/development tokens also amounted to 709,862 GVT/16% of the supply, these funds would/will have been used for development, these were locked for 1 year and released approx October 2018
3.) Sustainability is a big one. This is why I continue to follow GVT daily because I believe the Genesis Vision model is sustainable. See my previous post:
https://www.reddit.com/genesisvision/comments/9p80igenesis_vision_will_soon_become_a_self_sufficient/
TLDR - Here's how they will create revenue from the GV platform (taken from the whitepaper):
  • The project will receive profit from commissions on investment operations. Each investment will be charged 0.5%³ of the operation amount.
  • The project will also generate profit from managing its own fund and by investing it in successful managers of our platform.
  • Genesis Markets will create revenue from trading fees
Another thing to think about - The team have been extremely responsible with their funds. Zero funds have gone to waste and have been used in the most efficient way possible. One example (although a touchy subject) is marketing. The bottom line is marketing will ramp up when the project/platform has had more development (finishing integrating the brokers + additional features). The team have known that the correct time to market the platform is coming, just not yet... Obviously if they had 100's of millions from the ICO marketing would have been ongoing from Day 1. This is one example of being responsible with your investors/ICO funds.
If you would like some more information about the funds, the ICO etc. See these two links:

Genesis Vision - Q4 2018 to 2019

I posted a similar post to this around about a month ago, but I thought I'd make an updated post and give my thoughts on the latest news! So this is what we have to look forward too:
2018:
2019 (no official ETA's):
  • Fiat Gateway
  • Bank & Stocks Integration
  • Compliance for US investors
  • Further platform development for GV & Genesis Markets
Current Partnerships:
  • Tools4Brokers
  • LMAX Digital
  • Just2Trade
  • Larson&Holz
  • Monarch
  • RoboForex
Lots too look forward too here! As always i'm sure team have some good surprises up there sleeve to come!
Now my 2 cents on the recent US news ~ Firstly anyone who's done their own research, surely should have expected this news? Disappointing to some, maybe, but the team have confirmed they are working toward US compliance and will be developing some unannounced project for US investors so everybody can be involved!
With regard to the US regulation, would you have rather the team went full steam ahead, allowed US investors to invest, and then risk being closed down like 1broker? Absolutely not, transparency and security is of the upmost importance for Genesis Vision!
Just think, when looking to partner with banks/stock exchanges/brokers/managers/investors, do you think these guys will partner with/use a platform that has exposed themselves to this risk? No. The big money will want 100% security in their operations and GV have put themselves in a position to do just that.
This is how GVT will attract the best in the game. With the best in the game comes a sweet slice of that multi-trillion $ AUM industry!

Acknowledging the elephant in the room (your thoughts)

TLDR; Until we get fully regulated exchange style trading, retail fx will always be the "wild west" and believe me the sharks will eat you alive no mercy.
So I've been thinking about this for a while now and it kind of worries me. I'm a successful live trader but the "very long term" worries me. What if this and that. I don't want to quit my job and then find out one day that I can't live off of this anymore... I trade with Darwinex at the moment and they are fucking amazing but even then I'm still worried that my relationship even with them might not last very long if I keep winning consistently.
As I'm sure you are all already aware, currency trading is performed over the counter. Meaning there is no exchange where all parties can trade with equal terms. And that creates an inherent conflict of interest. This means that it's not in your broker's best interest for you to win consistently. With stock trading, on the other hand, you are trading on a centralised and fully regulated exchange and your broker will pretty much NEVER work against you because the more you trade, the more commission you pay.
In the world of fx, prices are different everywhere! In the world of centralised exchanges, everybody gets the same price! This is a reality we all have to face.
With fx, sure you have spread and commission but there's always a counter party. And that'll either be:
  1. Another trader (if there's enough people on the other side)
  2. You broker (direct loss)
  3. A liquidity provider (the bank pays the broker who pays you)
So even if your broker has best model possible, which is working with an LP (NDD/DMA/STP/ECN), the LP might decide one day "hey ban that trader or we stop doing business with you".
So my questions are:
A. Let's be brutally honest with ourselves. Is RETAIL Forex trading really viable in the long term?
B. Do you agree with me that we need something like an international exchange facility that is fully regulated?
C. Do you think this is going to happen anytime soon?
The only company that I've come across to implement something even remotely similar to this idea (I'm not promoting them just saying) is LMAX Exchange with their multilateral trading facility model which proves fair trading conditions for ALL traders regardless of account size or lot sizes. They really offer full transparency.
But that's just the first step. It's not quite the right solution, in my opinion. Has anybody come across anything better out there?
I've read a few articles about the "FX Global Code" and rebuilding trust and bla bla bla but nothing for us poor retail traders.

Brokerages:
There are many factors to consider when choosing a brokerage. Regulations typically force US traders to only trade at US brokerages, while international traders have more choice. After considering location you need to consider how much capital you will start trading with as many have minimum deposit levels. Once you’ve narrowed that down you can compared spreads and execution. ECN brokers execute your orders straight through to their liquidity providers, while market maker brokers may pair up your trades with other clients. Market maker brokers typically will partially hedge your positions on the interbank market. Many consider this to be a conflict of interest and prefer to trade at an ECN broker who would have an active motive to see you succeed. Lastly, brokers run inherently risky business models so it is important to consider the risk of bankruptcy.

FAQ:
I need to exchange money, how do I do it?
This isn’t what this sub is for. Your best bet is using your bank or an online exchange service. Be prepared to pay a hefty fee.
I have money in one currency and need to exchange it into another sometime in the future, should I wait?
Don’t ask us this. We speculate intraday in FX and shouldn’t be relied on to tell you what’s best for you. Exchange the money when you need it.
I have an FX account, should I start trading demo or live?
This is highly debatable. You should definitely demo trade until you have mastered how to use the trading platform on desktop and mobile. After that it’s up to you. Many think that the psychology of trading live vs demo trading is massively different. So it may pay to learn to trade live. Just be warned that most FX traders lose almost their entire first account so start with a low affordable balance.
What’s money management?
Money management is a form of risk management and is arguably the most important aspect of your trading when it comes to long term survival. You should always enter trades with a stop loss - the distance of the stop allows you to calculate how large of a percent of your account balance will be lost if your trade stops out. You can run a monte carlo simulation to figure out the risk of having a number of trades go against you in a row to drain your account. The general rule is that you should only risk losing 1-4% of your account per trade entered.
More on this here: www.investopedia.com/articles/forex/06/fxmoneymgmt.asp[35]
www.swing-trade-stocks.com/money-management.html[36]
What about automated trading?
Retail FX traders have been known to program “Expert Advisors” (EAs) to automate trading. It’s generally advisable to stay away from that until you’re very experienced. Never buy an EA from a developer because the vast majority of them are scams.
What indicators are best?
That’s up to you to test and find out. Many in this forum dislike oscillating indicators since they fail to capture the essence of what moves price. With experience you will discover what works best for you. In my experience indicators that are most popular with professional traders are those that provide trading “levels” such as pivot points, fibonacci, moving averages, trendlines, etc.
What timeframe should I trade?
Price action can vary in different timeframes. In longer term timeframes the price action and fundamentals are much more clear. Unfortunately it would take a very long time to figure out whether or not what you’re doing is successful on longer timeframes. In shorter timeframes you can often tell very quickly if what you’re doing is profitable. Unfortunately there’s a lot more “noise” on these levels which can prove deceptive for those trying to learn. Therefore the best bet is to use a multi-timeframe analysis, working from top-down to come up with trades.
Should I trade using fundamental analysis (FA) of technical analysis (TA)?
This is a long standing argument in these forums and elsewhere. I’ll settle it here - you should have an understanding of both. Yes there are traders who blindly ignore one of the other but a truly well rounded trader should understand and implement both into the analysis. The market is driven in the longer term through FA. But TA is necessary to give traders a place to enter and exit trades from a psychological risk/reward standpoint.
I’ve heard trading Binary Options is an easy way to make money?
The general advice is to stay away from binaries. The structure of binary options is so that when you lose the broker wins. This incentive has created a very scammy industry where there are few legitimate binary options brokers. In addition in order to be profitable in binaries you have to win 55-65% of the time. That’s a much higher premium over spot FX.
Am I actually exchanging currencies?
Yes and no. Your broker handles spot FX is currency pairs. Although they make an exchange at the settlement date they treat your position in your account as a virtual currency pair. Think of it like a contract where you can only buy or sell it as a pair. In this sense you are always long one currency while short another. You are merely speculating that one currency will appreciate or depreciate vs another.
Why didn't my order fill?
Even if price appears to cross over a line on your chart it does not guarantee a fill. Different charting platforms chart different prices - some chart the bid price, some the ask price and some the midpoint price. To fill a limit order price needs to cross your limit's price plus the spread at the time that it is crossing. If it does not equal or exceed the spread then it will not fill. Be wary that in general spreads are not fixed. So what may fill at one time may not at another.
