some of them, giving out for their own. That is, the trader, as it were, cooperates only with the
broker, without going into the details of the Forex broker's work and the deal on the foreign
exchange market independently. Such work of a broker-dealing company is not dishonest in
relation to a trader, since the trader's transaction is preserved, and the broker does not interfere
with his winning clients.

hunt for the deposits of his traders. It's enough for even winning traders, the number of which
exceeds the losses, to stay afloat and earn a lot of money.
