In the end you ran with MBT, what tipped the scales in your choice of broker because obviously there is something that attracted you to join them, pros and cons?
I am with both, first MBT and then Dukascopy.
I wouldn't want to deal with a non-ECN broker; you don't want to trade against your broker, especially not with intraday trading. With swing- and position trading it becomes less of an issue because the cost of trading per pip gained ratio is much lower. Another reason for me at the time to go with MBT was because TRO was/is an IB to MBT.
Alternatively, you can trade futures on forex for daytrading. Check out TP Futures, they have low margins. They support Ninja.
Whatever you do, you need to do your own due diligence. Don't believe what others say (and that includes me), check it yourself and study all the smallprint. One simply has to do this; this is a business and not gambling (for me it isn't).
There are several sites with broker ratings, like www.forexpeacearmy.com where you can get an idea of what is going on.
If I were to make a decision at this moment, based on my current experience, I would go for Dukascopy. I reserve the right to be wrong, however. As with trading, time will tell if you made the right choice.
Hope this helps.
