The arbitrage situation may arise for several reasons. Two most possible causes:
- Price difference between liquidity providers

Several our clients received very good results trading DAX with locking arbitrage. We would like to share with you some tricks to help you to make good profit as well.
We do not recommend to trade only DAX. It is much more safe to trade currencies as well. Because you do not need to adjust offset for currencies, but you need to adjust for CFDs and indexes, we recommend to add your brokers hedge pair 2 times, but with different magic numbers and labels.Read More

Almost all MT4 brokers have protection against quotes and execution delays. These kind of solutions helps them to minimize risks, caused by trading on spikes and arbitrage. Several companies provide anti-arbitrage plug-in for protection against scalpers and arbitrage traders.
Usually anti-arbitrage plugins based on order life time and profit size determination. For example, if major of your trades was opened for very short period, your trading stile can be classified like arbitrage and anti-arbitrage will flag your account or change trading conditions for you in fully automated mode.Read More

The strategy for trading nonfarm payrolls is a fairly simply but effective strategy, which allows traders to make a profit of 100-150 pips in a matter of several trading hours (for four-digit quotes). However, it does require some trading skills; those will be discussed below. I recommend that you review them carefully, as trading the news is risky business and ignoring the rules of prudent trading can lead to losses.Read More

Latency: what is it?
First of all, we need to understand what latency is as a concept. In IT lingo, latency is the amount of time it takes for a computer command to be carried out. More precisely, it is the period of time between the input of a command and its execution. Expressed in milliseconds (a millisecond is a thousandth of a second), this is a term that is used widely in trading on the forex market, where it represents the amount of time that it takes for a broker’s server to communicate with a trader’s request.Read More

I would like to introduce you to one of the most effective strategies to trade the news and join those traders who take advantage of these situations.Read More
