I am doing my due diligence on LMAX as they impress me as a potential forex broker!

I am doing my due diligence on LMAX. This thread sort of impressed me:


It looks like LMax is getting rave reviews so this may be my broker of choice as compare to bucket shops.

It has given me some more links to care about:

LMax second best for spreads as compared to MBT.
