I would agree. Unfortunately thats still no acceptable solution for Traders like you that want to run their EAs. I actually have an account with MBT as well but dont use their MT4 platform(I use the Navigator). I dont believe FXCM is out to "get" Traders-but a fix for their MT4 problems needs to happen soon-like yesterday. I do have FXPro.coms demo (I actually use this to do Tech Analysis) and have FXCMs MT4 feed running as "backup". Prices match almost exactly but I did notice FXCMs feed has more interruptions. I really cant offer any advice on this problem as its all up to the Broker. I do feel confident that they would do everything possible to fix-if this doesnt happen soon- changing platforms(or Brokers) are options.Good luck.I guess if I traded manually Trading Station would be the solution. However, I use EAs extensively (besides occasional manual trades) so I need MT4. But it seems that the Boston Technology bridge solution makes the system hardly acceptable for scalping and sometimes gives problems even with position trading. As you saw the system has problems with executing relatively small trades at a real lull time.
FXCM sucked in a lot of traders when the NFA new rules were implemented and the magnet was MT4 trading + no FIFO + hedging. But I think they were not really technologically prepared for handling high traffic. For some reason, they have to use BT to interface between their backoffice system and MT4 and this seems to work so-so. As you do not have problems with TSII, my assumption is that problems maybe related to MT4 + BT bridge.
