Hello, I'm new to the whole thing but serious to learn. I've got some friends that were pretty successful with the mentioned brokers. Is there someone who has some experience and can recommend one or two brokers?
Well, as far as I'm concerned, XM and Plus500 are definitely out of the list. Both are shady brokers. I remembered Xe shared a video on how XM manipulates the order via a virtual plugin in MT4. So, definitely a big no.
This should really be two different threads since these companies have nothing to do with each other and generalizing is nor really fair.
They are similar though. Plus500 is a very simple brokerage in the UK and XM is a Cyprus brokerage that offers full MetaTrader suite, etc.
