Saxo Capital Markets/Saxobank

Hi, I'd like to ask about Saxo Capital Markets Pte Ltd, a forex (and CFDs) broker licensed and regulated by MAS in Singapore and a branch of Saxobank in Europe. Has anyone tried a live acc with them yet, and how is it?

I've tried its demo (SaxoTrader platform), and for forex they use a live price feed from their HQ server in Denmark. I'd like to know whether there are problems with slippages, re-quotes, and thespreadsduring heavy news time with Saxobank live acc.

Planning to move to Singapore broker here.

Thanks in advance.

Tra-X "What is the fundamental of Forex?" "It's a fractal geometry!" I guess nobody uses Saxobank here lol. Oh well. Tra-X "What is the fundamental of Forex?" "It's a fractal geometry!" I don't recommend them, I'm live with them and about to close. I don't use them much for forex, more to index tracking, they have freeze 'problems' most...

I recomend one that uses metatrader, at least the platform is way better.

As far as I know, they don't like people trading the news. So if you plan to trade right at the time of news avoid them at any cost.I'm with Saxo but i don't recommend. There are many mini-fx in sgp now. I've got no problems with slippages, re-quotes, and the spreads. Hate their rollovers. has anyone any idea of MT4 brokers in singapore or anywhere near this region, Asia. No Singapore is not a part of Australia. My wifes colleague in UK thinks that Australia and Singapore office can share a printer, lmao. How'd he get a job... Back to this topic, MT4 rocks, anyone trading around this region has a good platform to recom? I'm sick of TT charges to and fro US.

Thanks, happy pipping!

I am with Saxo They have this thing called dealer chat. It is more of a P.R. of all the trades they are taking. So every half hour they take some kind of trade for what ever reason... somehow it lules you also into taking a trade every half hour... good bad .?? Leverage doubles over the weekend. Your account is insured up to 20 000 Euros

or something like that.

I would like to comment one sad issue I had with Saxobank,They issued a requote 8 hours after the fact,the trade was closed and confirmed 8 hours before their PHONE CALL asking me to accept the requote or else they will nullify the trade,since their requote(35 points in Spanish index Ibex) was only for 70 Euros,after haggling with them I accepted,but I feel scammed by them..what do you think?Should I pursue the issue legally?After their requote,instead of winning 415 Euros I won 345,but I feel like they took advantage of meno...instead witdraw 400 EUR ...and trade with less,...thats what i do,..if i think i was robbed,..but u must take in knowledge that they provide liqudity,..so u can be pleased with 345 euros...imagine u were a broker and evrybody wouldbe wining,...how could u pay them,..u would gone broke imo.Yes, I have an account with them. I only use them for obscure carry pairs though. They are good for those.Anyone know the which Singapore local broker using MT4 platform,

I am currently using saxo bank platform.

I have been using them for a while, and recently started using CMC. I find that Saxo charts and quotes tend to whip around a lot compared with CMC which is a lot more stable. I am not sure if this is due to the lack of liquidity with Saxo or whether there is some guy in their office just whipping things around to take out stops. Also, when things get hairy, Saxo's slippage starts to really widen, eg if you chart based on the bid and are looking to go long on a certain bid price, when you enter at market you might find you enter at

the ask which suddenly whips up way above where you wanted to enter. I was always wondering why my chart didnt look as bad as the losses I incurred, maybe this is why. Maybe it's just my bad trading but I'll know once I have used CMC for a while longer.

BTW I had this really crazy account manager at Saxo who couldnt take criticism and... never mind. More on that another time...

I couldn't find any other broker that could provide such guarantee for customers deposites... I am based in Singapore, I have tried Saxo platform and find that their live quote is extremely slower than the other. Take a compare with other broker using MT4 and you will see the scarely things. In addition, they claim that their platform are those award winning software which i think is Bull XXXX. Thier platform is not user friendly and always hangs. Worse of all, their platform cannot change indicators, they have their own indicators.

Let me know if someone find them good. Thanks.

I have to agree with the bit on charts being slow. I am not so sure about indicators cos I don't use that many anyway. I have had many issues with their charts, but some have been ironed out. The worst thing has been the charts lagging the quotes... so you look at the charts and think that nothing has happened till you notice to your horror the quote has already moved 20 pips or something like that.

You sound like you might work for Saxobank. Do you? "Stay Sharp and Keep Learning!" - VM I've been using their PC java platform (saxo trader) for stocks and CFD's, because they seemed to offer better commissions than other companies, but never actually tried FX with them. Thank god i read this thread, now i know i won't be trying FX with them anytime soon...

As far as I know they get quotes for charts and for forex board from two different servers.Ok, let me state here that my opinions are my own. Everyone should test this out for themselves if they are really interested, and can do so on their demo platform which I believe you can access for free.

"Stay Sharp and Keep Learning!" - VM Hi there, could we have your opinion on TradeCommander, it's an automatic trading platform with backtest and optimisation feature. I started to use it last year on a demo account. Now they've added almost all the features I've requested. It sounds a good platform but I would like other views. It seems to be free of charge.

See http://forum.tradecommander.com/ and http://www.tradecommander.com/ Your feedback would be welcome. Kaikoura

I personally feel thatigmarketsis the best. In time of volatility there seems to be no slipage.
