    Introducing Global Prime Forex

    Yes, that settled. It was in fact no worse than all the MT4 brokers seem to be. During my DD of Pepperstone I found they were just as bad/good. I have experienced the same with AxiTrader. Me too, but not as much as they'd like. :))

    Share a joke. Have a laugh or at least a grin :)

    I know most retail traders like to think of themselves as being traders, market makers, economists and technical analysts all rolled into one.
