How do I sign up to use tymoraPRO with Dukascopy Forex for quotes and executions?

As a third-party technology provider for the Dukascopy FX BANK, you are able to use tymoraPRO to trade through their ECN-based forex platform.  You also receive free access to Dukascopy's 9-level deep JForex SWFX ECN book for use in tymoraPRO. Even better, if you decide to trade forex and stocks (for example), you can multiplex datafeeds from multiple brokers (ie. ActiveTick + Dukascopy) to access your preferred stock feed and forex feed simultaneously in tymoraPRO.

Dukascopy provides you with direct access to its Swiss FX Marketplace (SWFX) Electronic Communications Network, which specializes in providing institutional liquidity and instant execution for foreign exchange. SWFX takes out the middleman by directly combining pools of liquidity from other exchanges, institutions, market-makers, and traders. With SWFX, you won't have to worry about Dukascopy taking the other side of your trade, or sitting on your stop and holding back on fills in a fast market.

Via SWFX, you receive the same market rates and executions as professionals, institutions, banks and hedge funds. Spreads for key pairs such as #EURUSD can at times be as low as 0.00001 (fractions of a single PIP). Compare that with many other forex brokers / "bucket shops" with a 2-5 PIP average spread (albeit "without" commissions). Also consider how your orders are handled (or ignored) in a fast market, and then decide for yourself which venue will give you the best chance of success in the highly-leveraged foreign exchange arena.

In lieu of the standard "no commission" PIP-spread model, Dukascopy charges a small commission per trade. Dukascopy's standard commission schedule decreases even further depending on your account size and volume traded. To make sure your account is compatible with tymoraPRO, make sure you reference IA# 9202 (Dukascopy Europe, with a minimum account size of US$100), or IA# 9190 (Dukascopy Bank SA, with a minimum account size of US$5000) when you sign up for a Dukascopy account. We also ask that you contact us directly, so that we can verify that your Dukascopy JForex account has been properly established.

Dukascopy also offers a Swiss Custodian Banking Service, which enables you to maintain your funds at other banks such as Merrill Lynch, EFG, Barclays, Banque de Commerce et de Placement (BCP), Compagnie Bancaire Helvétique S.A. (CBH), and others. With this solution, you can safely and confidentially maintain your capital at the bank of your choice, while still maintaining all the benefits of a direct Dukascopy forex trading account.

Your deposits are also very safe at Dukascopy as well, as it is licensed as a Swiss Bank with a 100,000 CHF insurance guarantee per account (so yes, you can now have your own legal Swiss Bank account)!
