Community Links Members List. Jan 23, , Jan 29, , 2: I think DukasCopy has been on the rise for several years now, in a good way. You've got four trading platforms to select from, or should I say, four flavors with only one MT4 being a real distinction with a difference.
If you like Java based platforms, then you will luv DC. I you like paying commissions, then you will also luv DC, but in fairness, I've done some preliminary calculations from a long-term trading standpoint and the commissions are negligible as far as I am concerned - though they might not be to the liking of others. To off set some of this, the spreads are seemingly low at least as advertised , but of course, that is made up by charging the commission.
They are a Broker trying to become an "FX Bank" whatever that means in full detail, but they seem to have some coherence in their offering. They are a non-U. And, you won't have to walk far to gain some of the privacy people look for when utilizing a Swiss Bank account, as this is a Swiss Broker. I can't say anything else about them as I have not yet made the Atlantic crossing to visit them I might do so while taking care of some other business , but from what I've seen thus far, at least a second look might be warranted, though I prefer to trade through a real bank, personally - if I can find one not in bed with FXCM sorry, I had to get that comment in there.
My major concern with the DukasCopy platform would be the longer-term issues with Java based latency inherent in many real-time JRE based applications I have yet to run a demo on my machine to confirm - maybe somebody else can post about the latency issues, if they exist at all.
It is robust, no doubt, but often times the trader pays a price for that higher level of functionality. However, I do prefer the more complete trading platform to use, though there were some common sense trade set-up and configuration capacity missing from the Saxo platform, which surprised me given its robustness. Feb 24, , Saxo is your choice, Dukascopy is swiss broker with russian capitals I think. Swiss brokers do not offer any funds protection as a standart.
