      Gain Capital runs a top forex broker site called Forex.com, at www.forex.com I would recommend them for a mini account, based on my 5 years of experience with them. Here is a review of their plus and minus points.

      They have an excellent set of 3 trading platforms Their ForexTrader platform is certainly one of the best. You have a choice of 3 to choose from, and they are all easy to use and full of features.

      Their charts are the best equipped of any broker, and they have multiple Bollinger bands and Keltner channels, which are important for my


      trading. You can fully customize all your chart aspects, even the colors. Color coding is necessary for me and my chart methods; Gain makes that easy. Some useful comments and analysis are included at the side bar during the trading day.

      You can also get good 200:1 leverage with Gain Forex. Now you can choose to have your account set in the UK. This doesn’t affect any of your trading from the US. However, this does relieve you of the new and threatening regulations that the CFTC has been imposing on US investors. You are able to go back to the ...


      • nice 200:1 leverage we all had before 2009.

        The spreads between bid and ask are about the same as any other broker, 2 to 5 pips on major pairs and 7 pips on exotic currency pairs (such as AUD/NZD). However, sometimes the majors could be tighter, it’s not a big issue, as long as their platform is stable.

        Trades can be completed fast with no hiccups. A few times I experienced a small amount of slippage, but this can be avoided by just placing limit orders. Their platform almost never crashes.

        They’ve added gold along with forex products, and

        lots of currency pairs, but they only have spot trading. If Gain Capital would add options, they would really excel!

        Funding your account is easy with a credit card, and there is no fee to deposit by credit card or ACH. Their minimum is just $250, and I would suggest $500 to start real trading.

        I can certainly recommend Gain Capital, Forex.com, as a good, truthworthy forex broker. I have used them for 5 years and still trading there. If they would add Options to their product line, they would be the best.

        Let’s hope they add some new products, options, derivatives, etc. in the next year.
