    Default Investors v Forex

    I have spend a lot of time studying the money market from the view of the investor, but something I haven't looked into before but notice in this forum:

    Namely the help and advice given out by FXOpen and their team, it got me thinking = What if every investor on FXOpen made a profit would it harm the broker or help the broker ?

    Does the broker cover against a lose (the way bookmakers do) or would it have the opposite effect ?

    Like to see what others think about this question.

    Since the money comes from the market, not FXOpen, it would not harm the broker at all if everyone was profitable. In fact, it is better for the broker that traders make a profit, keep trading and increase their volume. FXOpen is paid from the proceeds of the spread so more trading, equals more profits for the company.

    There are some unscrupulous companies out there that win when their clients lose. They are called "bucketshops". FXOpen is not one of them.

    As far as i know brokers loose money if the highly leveraged acounts continuously make money as the leverage is loan from broker to the account holder .

    look you can treat forex as longterm investment
    just enter the trade with 0.5% of your account size
    and sure you will win

    what's the point in there? you won't make healthy profits with this strategy, better is to evolve your trading skills

    No, I think the price is controlled by the market.
