The Alpari international financial brand has once again proved itself one of the most technologically advanced brokers in the world, including among those who offer ECN trading themselves. At the end of 2019, Alpari achieved the de facto tightest spread on pro.ecn.mt4 accounts. At the moment, the average spread value for the most popular EURUSD currency pair stands at 0.2 pips. In addition, it is worth considering that Alpari offers one of the lowest brokerage commissions on the market — only 3.2 USD per 1 lot for most currency pairs1. All of this was made possible thanks to constant work with partners and the growth of competitive advantages, resulting from carefully selected technical solutions for working with liquidity.
To recap: when trading through ECN gateways, traders get direct access to interbank liquidity. Thus, ECN accounts completely eliminate the possibility of a conflict of interest arising between the client and the broker, given the fact that all transactions are handled by external counterparties. Furthermore, all ECN accounts offer an almost unlimited supply of liquidity, the instant execution of orders and no requotes. Alpari's development of advanced ECN architecture has already enabled millions of traders around the world to reach a whole new level of trading.
You might recall that Alpari introduced a new type of ECN account in March 2013. Year-on-year, demand for this type of account has continued its steady growth among brand customers worldwide. Today, ECN type trading accounts have become an integral part of modern trading, providing traders with access to the largest providers of interbank liquidity.
