Well it's been about 7 months that I have been trading forex online and I've tried FXCM, GFT and now Admiral Markets... its shocking how there is absolutely no comparaison, AM is by far a way better platform (MeTaTrader4) compared to the others. The most shocking is that they put in your orders during the news announcements regardless of the volatility which the other brokers always ran me off on and made me lose enough to push me to a change. I ended up with Admiral Markets and I'm totally satisfied with my decision. I even tried clicking and buying eurusd during the housing announcement and I never got rejected once !! It was going up up up and I made approx 15K in 10 minutes!! During that time other brokers dont even let you trade (FXCM) or at best put one out of 10 though, with a requote (GFT).... thumbs up for AM its fantastic!

I got Admiral Markets recomended by a friend of mine who is a professional trader. I opened a small account with them and they have been very good so far. Good service and customer support. Good spread prices and still accurate fills in all markets.

I checked out their account opening details:

Bank account in Estonia
beneficiary: Admiral Markets Ltd,
address: 24 De Castro Street, Tortola, British Virgin Islands

Looks a little strange in my opinion. I would not send money to bank in Estonia when the broker (beneficiary) is located on British Virgin Islands.

IF you trade the news with them they will add you to Manual Execution at once !

I have been using them for half a year now did not have any problems so far but I am learning more and more about Forex and broekers every day. So i have found out that trustful companies register their names with NFA (National Futures association) in USA or FSA (Financial services authority) in UK. So since i thought they are UK based company and did not find them registered with FSA. I asked on live help. Here is the conversation that i had:

You are now chatting with Васил Банов (Общи въпроси (BG))
Васил Банов: Здравейте
Kristina: Hello
Kristina: i have one question
Kristina: is your company registered with FSA?
Васил Банов: Hello
Васил Банов: You mean USA?
Васил Банов: in the USA?
Kristina: no i mean is your company registered with Financial services authorithy in UK?
Васил Банов: no, we don't have. We are registered with the financial authorities in Estonia
Kristina: so your company is registered in Estonia or in UK?
Kristina: where is your main office?
Васил Банов: our main office is in Tallin, Estonia
Kristina: so you mean the company is made in Estonia
Васил Банов: No, first the company was registered in UK then we have moved our main office in Estonia
Kristina: so now the company is registered in estonia?
Васил Банов: yes
Kristina: oh ok so may i have the website of the financial institution in estonia that u are registered with?
Kristina: are u still there?
Kristina: Hello?

Anyway the conversation is for your judgement. As u see the operator ran away with no answer. I asked regular normal questions but got no answer. So like i said i had no problems yet but will close my account since it is better not to have the problems at all.

I see that admiral guys have arrange some extremely positive 4-star feedbacks from some traders. I know them well and actually started my trading career with AM. Their operations are managed out of Tallinn, they are organising introductori training courses for new clients but their service is extremely bad. At high volatility they basically block your positions so that you can not open or close anything. Few times I have had to call them to finally close my positions. I have paid my lessons with them and stoped 6 months ago. Another thing which scares is their corporate structure. They used to be UK ? registered but now in BVI, probably do not apply to any of the regulations in any country.
