What we think about FXDD

FXDD is a global forex broker offering a vast choice of trading platforms: the industry's most popular MT4, MTX (an enhanced version of MT4), PowerTrader (a professional ECN platform powered by Currenex), Viking Trader (another ECN platform powered by Currenex), Jforex (Dukascopy Bank's trading platform), and its own Swordfish. 

 
Add to that the ZuluTrade, Mirror Trader and Currensee platforms for trading signals, and you may find yourself wondering which platform is most suitable for you. 
 
Here is where the Platform Guru quiz kicks in: you are guided through a short series of questions, and depending on your answers, the Guru recommends the platform that will best match your trading preferences. Neat!  
 
There are two sets of spreads offered by the broker – standard and extreme. The standard ones are average, inclining to high, but the extreme are tight, even with the additional commission factored in. 
 
With FXDD novice traders will find a whole universe of training and educational resources: articles, live webinars, instructional videos, live trainings lead by the broker's experts, and so on. 
 
People with more experience are not overlooked either – for them there is the ForexLive news, analysis and commentaries site supported by the broker, the Autochartist pattern recognition tool, floating MT4 charts, VPS (free of charge for clients who deposit $2,500 or more) and all sorts of calculators – pip, margin, pivot size, spread cost, etc.

I has EA report and variables changes of fxdd then sometimes they changes from 5digits to 4 digits then your trailing stop void

they are master in manipulation of your acc

newbie should be away from them..master should play little size lot

paulmctan 03/30/2013

scam broker

stay away from them, they are lying all the time , really bad service and high spreads and not execute the orders in the news.

havan 09/20/2012

Today I have experienced frequent disconnects and very slow price updates; I have another platform running at same time, and FXDD's prices are very slow to "catch up" with real prices. Have gotten some "off quotes" and "trade context busy" messages as well when trying to execute orders.

I notified them via online chat, and they just told me they weren't having problems and gave me the tech support phone number. I haven't called, but may later.

I've never had issues to this degree with FXDD before, so it may just be a temporary glitch.

TC East, forexfactory.com 10/29/2009

This FXDD is good for 1 exception and that are the reqoutes. Requotes are so annoying that I don't us this broker anymore. At Oanda you get NEVER EVER a requote, but you get spread widening. For example at this moment the spread is at Oanda 10 pips and at FXDD 2 pips. It's Sunday evening 11:55 CET.

But dear FXDD, if I click BUY than I want my order executed and I DON'T WANT A QUESTION in return. (question if I want to accept the new price quote) And don't give me that "educate yourself about market conditions and volatility speech", because Oanda NEVER gives a requote.

Advantages

-3 different but equally workable trading platforms, which satisfy the needs of all sorts of clients.

Disadvantages:

-Unexpected transers from one language to another and to the home page.
-The information on the site varies according to the language.
-Strange situation with the insurance.
-The information about the company's structure and managers isn't complete enough.

"No stop hunting No price manipulation" who was the idiot who wrote the main review for this broker. obviously has not tried live trades on this broker before. the main review just me the impression that this website is a hack job. only credit is the external reveiws posted.

FXDD is a good forex broker with no requotes

Good broker with no requotes. No commission charged, you only pay the spread. Only problem is connection breaks at random times, though not frequent to disrupt trading.

Edd, Goforex.net 09/04/2009

I never had any problem with FXDD

I was with FXDD, live account, for over a year with no complaints. Email support was always top notch. Their spreads do get a little wild when important news breaks.

I never had any problem hitting my T/Ps, transferring my profits...etc. There were even times when an extra $18-20 would show up in my account as a "Promo" that I didn't know about.

I only left when my style switched from Technical Daytrader to sub 1M Scalper and I needed the lowest spreads I could find...

ffaspector, Babypips.com 09/04/2009

FXDD is a dealing desk forex broker

They are using dealing DESK and hard to make money from them, and ur money invested is gone like a wind, they care not to withdraw ones money back to him, stay away or u regret loosing ur money like me... i loose 1,000 usd plus with this theifs called them self's fx broker...WERE IS FBI U.S.A? go and catch those theifs in FXDD managers office and jail them for life with supreme court of world justice...

KBT, Earnforex.com 09/04/2009

FXDD closed my trade without asking

Totally suck, my live acount, over 300 usd eaten by their so called stupid trick stopout ... close my trade without asking and my account still got over 300 usd.. lot of reqoute, when price down they do not allow you to buy, when u clicked buy the system said connection error . really another big bad broker around..
do not lied by them again.

Steven, Earnforex.com 09/04/2009

Run away from this bucket shop

In my opinion traders should run a mile away from this bucket shop. Champions in invalid prices (when prices are perfectly), chasing losses, poor customer service, requotes, disconnections, you name it they use every trick in the book. A real bucket shop.

Cesime, Goforex.net 09/04/2009

FXDD execution is fast, but...

I think they do stop hunting and have also seen my computer lock up when it is moving or nothing happens for minutes before an update is made, so I wonder where I am. This happens too often to be an electronic problem. Executions are fast, often one click.
