You can easily open account by them and deposit funds but you can now withdraw you money once they received them if regardless if you made a profit or

There are no problems when you want to deposit funds to hotforex but when you want them out the money disappear in excuses. First one is you need to prove how you made your money. I personally had to provide documentation on how i earned my money 10 years back. then i need to provide bank statements from each and every money transfer i have made from that account. I hade to give them this on from what account I moved money to where they arrived and then to next account and next all the way up till today to be allowed to withdraw funds. I had more then half i million usd by them. Now I am removing the remaining 7500 usd I have by them and again I had to prove who I am even tho i went to them for meetings a few months ago. I have been trying to withdraw from 2 different accounts and i have problems with both. First I needed to resend documents proving who I am and after several days of talking to them and getting them to accept the withdrawal it finally went through. this is now more than 10 days ago and right now they don't know where my money went. Normally it takes less then 3 days for me to send money anywhere in the world. When i send the money to Hotforex it took 3 days to arrive. When I withdraw all kinds of things seem to happen to delay funds in being withdrawn. I talked to employees when i went to Cyprus both a few months ago and last month. They both left the company due to them scamming clients and having a hard time with the moral in delaying transfers out already at a profit of I think it was 50 usd you will be experiencing delays and misshabs when you try to withdraw. If you trade Binaries and are succesful you will experience slippage or not being able to close trades in profits. If you still are profitable they will close the pairs telling you they no longer have this "option" available for you to trade. The liquidity provider they use is a partner of Hotforex with whom they share the profits ( your loss ) and if you have a profit it is becoming increasingly harder to withdraw funds.

I think the quick withdrawals is a common thing with this broker, the platform is good, the server seems stable and the execution is fast, even during Yellen's announcement on the 21st scalping was not much of a problem. I have traded this broker for close to a year now and no complaints on my end.

Sorry,there for typo-errors.By the said date it would be three years rather that I started operating a live account with HotForex.

Sep 13, 2016 - 4 Stars By 28/11/2016 it would be two years since I opened my first funded live with HF.It has been extremely challenging becoming a consistent profitable trader.It has been both a painful and exciting experience.As some of the trading wise men have said,"you do not trade the market;you trade your attitudes".Indeed,to trade consistently and successfully I say learn trading,know your character flaws and strengths and adopt the higher metaphysics of success.Then implement all these and you "will" succeed,God-willing.

I would have rated HF as excellent but for only one withdrawal that I still await,God-willing.Though I have lost about $30,000 trading live account with HF,I believe it was all my fault.Finally about two weeks ago,I funded my account with $1,495 and it the same week I closed all my trades with over $10,000 in my balance.Then I requested for withdrawal of $7,250 in total..I have since received $3,400 via my credit card in two withdrawals with each reaching my credit card account by the third day after my filing the withdrawal requests.They asked me to expect it withing 2-10 working days.They both came on the third day.Before this I had withdrawn $100 in the past as my first withdrawal request and it reached my credit card account at about the third day too.great,I would say.

Of my $7,250 request above I was told that I need to request the balance of about $3,850 through pother withdrawal options.I chose bank wired withdrawal.I was alerted that my request has been processed and it should reach my account within 2-10 working days too,depending on my bank.That I am still awaiting God-willing and this is the only reason I am yet to rate HF 5 star.My live account number is 319373.

The law was broken and Hot Forex is responsible for damages caused to European businesses


Mauritius broker HOT FOREX CUT OFF ALL EUROPEAN MONEY MANAGERS while refusing to state reason!

Hot Forex failed to provide services the company agreed to provide and caused damages to number of European businesses.

Email we received:

"Dear Valued Client,

We would like to inform you that HotForex will be no longer offering PAMM accounts service in your region.

We recognize the importance of this decision to you and we apologize for any inconvenience this development may cause, regrettably it is a decision that we have no choice but to roll out.

In light of the above, you are kindly requested to proceed with withdrawing your investment from your PAMM account by Friday 30th September 2016.
In addition to the above by Friday 30th September 2016 and no later than 23:59 midnight server time (GMT+3) all open positions and pending orders in PAMM Manager accounts will need to be closed. Any positions left open will be automatically closed at the prevailing market price at that time and all pending orders will be deleted.

In the event that you have a PAMM Manager account(s) with zero balance and/or account(s) with no open trades at the time this email is sent, they will be placed to inactive mode with immediate effect. This means that only funds withdrawal option will be available on these accounts.

Please be advised that HotForex is already working on alternative solution for all clients willing to invest and follow successful traders.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at pamm@hotforex.com or via Live Chat.

Stable and Fast Withdrawal Broker

I have joined hotforex for 1 year and so far not having any issues in trading. They also provide various types of accounts and helpful things as Market Reviews and Webinars (through my inbox). The key point is their withdrawal service, its taking less than 2 days to arrive in my Skrill account. I successfully withdrew more than 5 times and no hassles.
