Received a lovely email today regarding cost of trades.. Increases seem a bit steep. Minimum charge up to 70 from 50 - 40% increase. Futures, CFD's all up by 10 to 70 - 17% increase...

What would they offer in return for this steep rise? Better service? Better platform?

Well, as long as people still use their services and vote for them as the best stockbroker...I doubt they will ever improve on anything

Are there other "service" providers offering a better service at a competitive rate. Seems like OST is becoming too expensive, time to move my account.

never thought i would ever say this as i loved ost at one stage but for pure cfd traders IG has fantastic platform ProRealTime and service, im not very impressed with their fees though but in comparison given the fees going up everywhere better platform and no delays glitches etc. pure index trading dwt's swordfish is by far cheaper in margin and trumps OST's service and glitches and did i mention fantastic on chart trading? unlike the dated troublesome easytrader. and for those overseas folk DWT terminal velocity is just as great.
