STP Brokers - DMA Brokers
Compare STP brokers and DMA brokers (Straight Through Processing and Direct Market Access). Compare regulation, spreads, leverage and much more.
STP brokers will “A” book all your orders – to a third-party Liquidity Provider, who executes your deal. Your broker is technically called the ‘Matched Principal’, and often, STP brokers do not hold ‘dealing on own account’ regulation – meaning they are not allowed a trading desk to hedge your orders.
DMA brokers are similar, in that you are dealing directly with the end-seller, usually an exchange – with the broker only facilitating your trading as per STP. The DMA STP brokers are usually remunerated via commission giving you thin or raw spreads.
Deposit is a recommendation. Spreads are the brokers’ lowest advertised prices. Leverage is the maximum offered by the brand, and may only be available “offshore” .
