    Very strange. Pretty sure the pdf file I had that time didnt have point 3 & 4 you mentioned, about the "market manipulation or creating a false market which is conduct prohibited under the Corporations Act 2001" ;o not sure about the other points, but for this 100% sure hmm.

    So my suspicion last time was right then if the TOS was updated with these :D So, doesnt that mean our orders may possibly actually be placed into a "dark pool" which they manage. Google the term "dark pool" which explains many things... theres so much misinformation in the forex retail world and theres no central law or body (because it is OTC) which governs it all which leads to confusion and "creativity" in filling orders process.

    ps: interested to know how this develops.

    I have been kept extremely busy on some project works these many months and have time only to make some quick trades on some of my live accounts with two brokers.

    As an update, ASIC finally got back to me some months back to informed they cannot do very much with my complaint against ICBucketshop and asked whether I need their assistance to help file a complaint report against that bucketshop broker with my country's ministry of international trade.
    So, looks like ASIC really does not have the necessary manpower & resources to follow-up with smaller fraud cases against ASIC regulated brokers.

    As is the case, I would advise all Traders who have issues with ICBucketshop to go ahead and file their complaints with ASIC since the more complaints ASIC received will eventually forced them to conduct an investigation on that bucketshop broker.
    To those Traders using and am happy-happy with ICBucketshop, well, good for you, but do keep a close watch on your trading account.

    REMINDER:
    STOP wasting your precious money and time with ICBucketshop a.k.a ICMarkets and move on to other better brokers.

    And there are a lot of 5 stars positive ratings given on this broker with dates on the same day or the day after.
    This strongly suggest all these positive reviews on this bucketshop broker are as fake and dishonest as the broker...i.e. ICBucketshop

    I see I-See-Bucketshop people are still posting lots of fake nauseating good reviews on their company.

    I want to remind readers to stay away from this creepy broker!
