Besides MT4 ECN, some Forex brokers may also offer regular non-ECN accounts.
To avoid mistakes, spend an extra minute to compare account types and conditions on brokers websites.

Your MT4 ECN account should have such conditions as: “ECN, Market execution, variable spreads, commission rate” and should never have such keywords as “Instant execution, fixed spreads, no commission”

MT4 ECN – how it works?

MT4 platform was never meant to be used for ECN trading. It was created as a dealing desk software.
To make MetaTrader4 support ECN (level 2) trading, Forex brokers needed to implement a bride to a true ECN platform.
With MT4-to-ECN bridge a true level 2 trading becomes possible.

Currenex is an example of an advanced trading platform build for true ECN trading. With MT4/Currenex integration a broker is able to offer an interface of a familiar MT4 platform with extra features available only through Currenex, such as access to the interbank rates, advanced liquidity, fast order execution speed, access to the market depth data, one-click trading, OCO orders and much more.

MT4 ECN trading advantages
