• Please try to select the correct prefix when making a new thread in this folder.

    Discuss is for general discussions of a financial company or issues related to companies.

    Info is for things like "Has anyone heard of Company X?" or "Is Comany X legit or not?"

    Compare is for things like "Which of these 2 (or more) companies is best?"

    Searching is for things like "Help me pick a broker" or "What's the best VPS out there for trading?"

    Problem is for reporting an issue with a company. Please don't just scream "CompanyX is a scam!" It is much more useful to say "I can't withdraw my money from Company X" or "Company Y is not honoring their refund guarantee" in the subject line.
    Keep Problem discussions civil and lay out the facts of your case. Your goal should be to get your problem resolved or reported to the regulators, not to see how many insults you can put into the thread.

    More info coming soon.

Could we trade with institutional or bank using MT5 via API ? How about other country regulation like FCA or ASIC or FINMA ?

FINMA is Switzerland's regulator, so you are OK there.

ASIC and the UK FCA are good. What worries me about both ASIC and FCA is that they do sometimes let brokers get away with some questionable activity. FINMA and the US regulators generally crush bad behavior more thoroughly.

No matter what, make very very sure which branch of the broker you are dealing with. Just because the broker is registered with the NFA or FINMA doesn't mean you are protected. Many brokers are groups of companies. Certain clients are under tight regulations and others are under a branch that's barely regulated or even fully unregulated.

It's possible that some institutional account offerings might include access to MT4/5. For the amount of money you are talking about trading, you should be able to easily hire a coder to translate orders from a demo account on MT directly to the real account's trading interface. You would just use the demo for a price feed and the look/feel of the MT order interface.

Another option is to trade currencies on a regulated options/futures exchange (be aware that this is completely unrelated to binary options). Sive talks about that here:

An exchange removes the availability of many sorts of broker abuse. Every tick is the same for all traders on the exchange no matter which broker they use. Every bid and every offer is also on display.

Institutional accounts are offered at some brokers. These are specifically for very large account sizes.

Extremely well regulated brokers means a strict regulator with a history strict enforcement. The US has some of the tightest regulations, which is why so many brokers left. After the Crown Forex fiasco damaged Switzerland's reputation, ALL forex brokerages there have to hold a banking license.

George Soros doesn't trade forex at typical retail brokerages. He trades forex at banks. Outside of Switzerland, banks are an alternative for large traders. A typical bank in most countries doesn't deal with retail forex trading, but you might be impressed by what sort of institutional grade account a large bank can arrange for a large client.
Exactly there is this option but as I understand it those professional/institutional accounts also don't get the same protection as retail accounts like negative equity protection etc.

Withdrawal of equity through legitimate deals is an obligation of regulated brokers, regardless of figures - a must to honor.

Always tally the broker's receipt with the corresponding bank's incoming wire.

Lastly, such amounts should be with centralized futures exchanges or directly with banks via DMA with obligations between you & counterparties. And, you should be either investing in own platform (may be C# or C++) and technology (certainly not mt variants).

Notably, there will be lowest leverage or even no leverage granted given the risk exposure.

Cheers,
GoldmanSach

Few people have such large sums of money to advise their experience from practice. In any case you need to discuss these issues with support or finance departament individually.
