Rebates are generally predied on how much is traded and on a per trade basis. They'd have to perform a lot better than shave off a half pip to make it worth while for any trader. Who cares about getting a flat $5 rebate per trade? I am not going to call becasue there's nothing FX Sol can give me that will make me want to exchange with them IB, so that I shall continue to bet.
