STP, ECN Vs Dealing Desk

When choosing your preferred broker, one of the most important things to ask yourself is, what kind of broker do I need to look for?

Below is a simple comparison to help readers understand the main differences between a dealing desk and a STP, ECN or DMA brokerage.

Conflict or Interest

An STP broker executes all orders with a no conflict of interest policy. Orders are received and immediately sent through to the FX banks that provide liquidity. 

The Dealing Desk on the other hand will keep orders in house and not execute to the real markets. You are trading on a virtual market and one that is not obliged to follow any real market patterns.

Brokers Profits

A direct market access broker makes profits based on the spread clients trade on, or a commission (if ECN),  at no point does the broker make any money based on clients losses.
A dealing desk benefits from both sides, from the spread/commission and from losses generated on your account.

The Dealing Desk model is a serious conflict of interest that can cause your trading strategies many problems.

Profitable Traders

A true STP, ECN and DMA broker can accept any profitable trading strategy like scalping and EA users. As the broker takes no risks, there interests are helping clients generate profits and more volumes. As such, the inter-bank brokers will provide more favorable conditions and tools for traders to use.

If you are trading with a Forex robot or scalping strategy, you must consider that the conflicts of interest may restrict you from maximising your potential profits using a dealing desk broker.

Trading Conditions

Trading conditions are not only in the shape of spreads or commissions, but also restrictions on your trading account.

A inter-bank broker will offer you more favourable and less restricted trading conditions on important trading elements such as stop loss, take profit and pending orders.

The dealing desk on the other hand will restrict your trading strategy by enforcing minimum levels and limits on your orders.

Best Broker for Forex Scalping

When choosing a Forex Broker to run your Scalping Strategy or Scalping Robot, there are important questions that all traders must ask themselves and the broker before getting started.

Below are the most asked questions our support team receive from new Scalpers and EA traders at Yadix, all of which are crucial for a successful or profitable Forex Scalper.


Yadix delivers lightening fast and low latency order execution by using the Equinix Financial Exchange, a leading Financial Services technology provider.
The Equinix NY4 server facility is located at the heart of New York’s financial centre and through this technology, all clients trades will now be executed through the large network of trading hubs and bank servers, located in the Equinix data centres.


A deep pool of liquidity is provided through top FX Banks that compete for your forex trades and deliver the lowest spreads to Yadix clients. Multiple providers of liquidity ensure that there are no strategy restrictions giving you the freedom to scalp as aggressively as you want.
 Some of the leading Liquidity Providers competing for your trades: UBS, Citibank, JP Morgan, Bank of America, Deutsch Bank, Barclays Bank


The combination of Equinix technology and the a large pool of liquidity ensure that your orders are being filled as fast as possible to the biggest liquidity providers, as such orders are executed extremely accurately including tight stop loss and take profit filling.


As a true Inter-bank broker (DMA, ECN, STP), Yadix can deliver no restrictions on any pending orders or order modification. Unlike dealing desk brokers, Yadix gives its clients the ability to trade without a minimum level of pips on stop loss, take profit or any pending order types. There are also no time limits on the time that your orders need to remain open. Ideal for Forex Scalpers.


As we all know, low spreads are not just important, but a major factor in all Forex trading strategies. At Yadix, we offer two account types that offer Raw Spreads (the spread that the Broker receives from the liquidity providers). These Raw spreads are passed on to clients (without any mark up) on the Pro and Scalper accounts. This ensures low cost and the most accurate triggering of orders when using an EA or Automated trading strategy.


Slippage is generally reported as a negative aspect of trading on the interbank market, however, you rarely read about positive slippage. Positive slippage is when an order is executed at a more positive price to give the trader additional profits on a pending order.

Both positive and negative slippage is a factor that all traders need to consider and cannot be avoided when trading real Forex markets. Furthermore, there are no brokers that can guarantee slippage, unless they employ market making tactics.

When trading economic market data releases, there are a few steps to help traders being affected by slippage, they are using a VPS, balance trading and take into account slippage and avoid trading during these highly volatile periods. After all, when trading on the true Forex markets, slippage is part of trading and cannot be controlled or compensated.


When trading on the DMA, STP or ECN Forex model, you are guaranteed no re-quotes, stop loss hunting and other strategies that are employed by market makers to ensure that they profit from your losses.

The interbank model is as pure a model of trading forex as is possible. The broker does not benefit from losses and therefore, its interest is in helping its clients generate higher Forex volumes. Yadix provides many beneficial conditions and trading tools to help you grow into a better, more profitable Forex trader.


The Yadix commitment is to execute all deposits and withdrawals as soon as possible. On your first deposit, our back office performs all relevant checks in accordance to procedures set by the Forex regulators. Thereafter, all subsequent deposits are added instantly to your MT4 account.
