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.

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.
