MB Trading Reviews

Pros: None

Cons: Does not work under Ally.

Cannot use MBTrading Pro application anymore. Used to be good before acquiring. The trading is blocked by Ally. Virtually no customer support.

Worst ever customer service experience!!!! These people are clueless....Run don't walk away from here!!!

Cons: no debit card deposits/ TP not filled/ Connection lost

My tp was not triggered. I was up 30 pips and suddenly my connection was lost. Needless to say It came back on hours later after the market went against my position. They do not have 24 CS so I couldn't call to get out and my mobile MB app did not show my active trade. I went to Oanda, very pleased with Oanda.

I still have an account here, but it is the least of my favorite. The spreads here are really bad. I ran a strategy with them and fxcm and with side-by-side you can really see the fees are eating the MB trading account alive. They don’t have live chat, but rather a support ticket method. They website for funding with withdrawals is a bit confusing as well (I keep typed instructions). In my honest opinion, it appears that perhaps with the other lines of business they have, the don’t really intended to be competitive on the forex end. Also, be extremely careful with using EA’s or repeaters with them. If the markets are closed or your EA generates constant errors, there are fees they will charge you, taking the fees directly from your account balance. The rep tried to explain to me about this fees, but at the end of the day it just a way for them to make extra money off of you. Did I mention that you can’t trade with a balance less than $100?!?!?!!

Cons: web access is bad

I have been using MB web demo account for 2 month, I see the following problems with it:
1. If you place a market order with stop limit, it will not pick it and the trade will not be executed.
2. To close a trade you have to click on 3 windows ( No one click closing for the trade), Not good for fast market.
3. The account disconnect many times during the trade, and might have a problem signing in again.
I trade Futures and don't like to use a company that will make me lose because the web access is bad.

I've used MBT for a while, it's a good broker as far as the features it offers. But as far as trade executions it fails terribly. I experienced major slippages, trades being stopped out before the stop loss is touched.

I'm looking for another broker as we speak.

Pros: Best Options commissions in the industry

Cons: Outdated overnight processing

Best Options commissions in the industry. It's the only reason I use them, because most everything else is not good . Outdated overnight processing instead of real time processing, some sell trades do not result in immediately available funds for additional trading on the same day, meaning you will miss out on trading opportunities. Margin debit (borrowed money) when no trade or position(s) would ever trigger margin debit at any other major broker. No AON (all or nothing) option when making a trade!! Meaning you could easily get partially filled only, which could mean additional commissions for them, because some trades are only profitable when ALL of the position is traded. In my opinion, no Day Trader should ever use MBT and be prepared to do your own accounting to verify against the accounting firm they use, which is the only place where your account values will be correct. In a nut shell, if you do very discipline occasional trades, then MBT could work for you, otherwise unfortunately I can't recommend them until they fix all issues mentioned above.

It took me 1 month to find a good broker that is NOT a bucket shop, and this is IT! that's all I care about, I can trade make money, and then withdraw without all the other BS.

FPA reviews are unbelievably misleading, people post negative reviews because they suck at trading and lost money, review the BROKER please and not yourself.

Is this a fair Broker and not a bucket shop? YES
If you are profitable will you make money? YES

I have been trading off of their Demo mt4 and placing trades on their Live MBT Desktop PRO= started like that to make sure prices weren't manipulated and currently still trade like this so if you are looking for a fair broker choose this one don't give your money away to those a**whole bucket shops.

Leading Brokerage Review Websites About MB Trading

"MB Trading offers active investors the platforms and tools they need to succeed, including access to forex and futures trading; however, customer service lacks quality and the broker's research offering is nearly non-existent... Like all brokers, there is also room for improvement. The mobile apps lack depth, and customer service is extremely weak, with inconsistency and a lack of attention to detail, making for a poor client experience."

Brokerage Review

"With MB Trading, there is no need to have multiple accounts at various firms in order to diversify. You can trade stocks, options and futures from three different account types: cash, margin or IRA. You access your account from the web or from a PC that runs trading software or from a mobile phone. You are supported by MB Trading in many ways. You can chat, email, telephone or Skype for assistance. You can also use online tutorials or visit the user forums."

Top Ten Reviews

"MB Trading excels at providing a trading platform for different types of trading styles while keeping costs down and support high. But because their focus is on product and costs, there is room for improvement in their educational resources and tools."
