Can also combine with more exotic currencies to do fancy, more sophisticated things like carry trades.

I am sure Michal Kreslik can expound on this more with an expert-like knowledge. He's been quiet these day outside of the new trading platform. I wonder how his FX trading and perfect-immaculate hedging work is going?

I currently use Interactive Brokers for most of my trading.
I have not used them for Forex.
I am considering setting up an account with EFX Group for forex.
I use Tradestation for trading the E-mini's and stocks so I have that
data feed and charting. Since there is no central exchange for
Forex the data for TS does not chart precisely with EFX. However,
IB and EFX are usually quite close.

Has anyone used the charting service for EFX?
What are your thoughts and opinions on it?
Assuming I don't want to give away pips to the dealing desks,
what is your suggested broker and which datafeed or charting
service best approximates the trading at that broker.
My options currently are IB, EFX for brokers and
eSignal, TS or the EFX charting service.
I appreciate any and all replies.
I really value TRO's Tradestation coding for indicators and Radarscreen
and I am glad I found these website.

Hey joe:

I also coded indicators for eSignal and posted them here at kreslik.com

You can specify the EFX feed on eSignal so your charts will match Level II - time/sales.

I haven't seen the EFX charting package - don't feel like learning another platform..lol

Tell EFX The Rumpled One sent you.

Hey TRO,

Thanks much for the great work you do and the insights on the
eSignal / EFX connection.

I'll look forward to getting it set up.

I'd say he is in fact an expert. Considering he is on vacation right now and will return to a new ultra-luxury sports car. Does anybody know what type of business he was running?
