Maybe all of the above? I wasn't alert enough to fend against such experienced crooks right from the beginning. Now that everytihng has already happened, it would be too late to try and catch them in the act now.Just to be fair!
Why do you blame them for losing trades on the non-ECN products?
What kind of manipulations exactly did they do that's affected your trading results?
Slippage, stophunt behaviors, delayed execution, or something else?
However, and fortunately too, they have been caught in the past for similar dishonest acts and misconducts:
The same question could be asked: why didn't any of the investors caught them doing it? Only after the company had made a big mistake and is about to collapse and the adminstrators took over with its investigation teams, having full access to the company's internal records that they were able to uncover such acts, and charged them for it. It shows how experienced these crooks are in doing such underhanded acts and not getting caught by regular people who do not have access to such information.
Like previously mentioned about Vidarr, did you see the explanation they gave about why the Director of Gleneagle and Vidarr formed a offshore entity together? To facilitate payment. Yes, really. Why would they need to incorporate a new company just for receiving payments, and have both the director of Vidarr and Gleneagle on it, if they are not related in some way? It's to "pass money around" as it is harder to detect if the money is passed around within the same company, as compared to passing it between the bank accounts of different companies which would have to go through the bank and leave a record of the transaction.
Vidarr is a LP to the clients of Globalprime FX, which is owned by Gleneagle Securities. If the client's trade is executed with a bias for the LP they are affiliated with, then there is a conflict of interest. If there is such conflict of interest, it has to be disclosed. They do boast about being a honest and transparent broker. So where's the transparency in this?
