Each broker has small differences in the signal it delivers to its customers known as "feed". These small differences make indicators (sometimes too sensitive ) give signals that are interpreted by the EA as possible entries in a broker while another does not reach certain values ​​to be considered as a valid entry. Another area of ​​difference is the value of the spread. In this case the logic is that in SolidaryMarkets may are more entries because the spreads average value is much lower.

The acronym comes from NDD "No Dealing Desk".

The Market Maker we would say, are the purest representatives of the DD group (Dealing Desk). Market Makers are brokers acting as counterparty to the transactions of its customers. To be clear, the Market Makers operations do not place their clients in the real market nor transferred to any group of liquidity providers, but they are the ones who act as a market for the client.

No matter whether you are an experienced Forex trader or not, it is very important to become familiar with the software and the platform to be used as well as the procedures through Internet, prior to any “live” trading strategy. The easiest way to learn is to use a demo account before opening a live account. The spreads of our demo platform are exactly the same ones as our clients have in live operations. The demo will allow you to see from a first instant, consistency offered by Solidary Markets spread and in turn, test the ability to negotiate in real time.

80. Why is it different between live account and demo account?

The prices quoted on the demo and live accounts are the same. On that side there is no difference. The biggest difference is the possible slippage which may be in the live account and not in the demo. Execution times may be also be slightly different, between 200 and 300 ms in the live.

81. Why is so different a backtest to a real account?

What we have to realize that a backtest is made with results already "written" (historical) and all the settings you make to our EAs or robots are already known results. But a real account results are produced tick to tick, second by second, so we (or anyone) do not know what will happen in the future. EAs optimization and other factors like execution and spread can result in disadvantages for real account compared to the previous backtest.

82. Why is so important the spread to some strategies?

There are many EAs that are very sensitive to the spread (especially scalping) and where a small difference in the spread makes you enter a transaction or not.

83. Which is the SMFX execution time?

Typically between 50 and 350 ms.

84. What is the slippage?

The currency prices tend to move very quickly when the market is under very volatile conditions. The Slippage (delay/deviation) occurs when the price at which they tried to enter or leave is different to the current price. The risk of slippage is generally very high when there are important financial word news. The Slippage is the biggest problem when the market moves fast. Orders are executed but at different price than expected.

85. At what time it will be more slippage?

In those times when the market activity is lower and there is less liquidity. Also during financial news periods, because the price moves at a much faster rate than normal.

120. What is FIFO?

FIFO is the abbreviated form of the First in First out rule indicating that the positions are closed in the order they were opened. The FIFO rule is still being used by many broker including ECN brokers, became popular when the CFTC made it mandatory for all U.S. brokers. The First In First Out rule has important implications for the way in which many traders had their operations in advance. For example, in the past if you would have a buy and sell in the same currency, you could handle them as separate positions. With the standard FIFO, if you open more than one operation on the same pair, both positions are aggregated into one. For example, opening one buy and one sell with the same number of lots, the trader would be left with a position of 0 (zero) in the currency pair, that is, to sell the same number of lots for which previously purchased, the net position is zero because it would nullify (close) the purchase. Similarly, if you buy 1 lot and sold 2 lots in the same currency, the net position of trader would sell 1 lot. Practically, most retail U.S. brokers still allow independent positions in the same pair.
