I would like to appeal to Ava about:
- The sudden closure of all my orders without any prior notice.
- My purchase of Bitcoin (BTC / USD), if not closed, is now profitable. I ask Ava to compensate for this.

I sent wire transfer 4 days ago still not processed.

I sent wire transfer 4 days ago. My bank verified wire delivered to their account 4 days ago on Monday on 27th of Aug 2018. Until now they did not process the wire. I sent them 3 emails no response. I contacted via live chat 6 times nothing done. This broker is a totally scam. Stay away from them. I dont know how long they will hold my money. But I will withdraw all my funds and will not work with them again. All other brokers process wires in less than 24 hours. This broker is using your money for interest and do not care about you. I am going to report them to their regulator. This is not acceptable.

Avatrade is a Scam and they have high spreads

AVAtrade is AVAfake.
Never trade with this scamming company AVAtrade!
They offered me a bonus of 30% when I open my Account on the 31.07.2018 so I did it and I deposit 1300 Euro right away via Creditcard in my Account the same day and made the first trade at the same day on the 31.07.2018.
After the EMSA regulation took place on the 01.08.2018 they revoke the contract to add my bonus of 30%.
My PRO Tarding Account is 74010710.
Avatrade have high spreads and thy customer support is worst and arrogant always lying to the clients.
The German and the UK support are the worst always lying to clients and not keeping the contracts.

Dear Black Trader,

Thank you for taking the time to post the review.

I went ahead and reviewed your account. Indeed, you created the account and deposited funds on the 31st of July, however, the account was verified in August, and the welcoming bonus could be given only upon account verification. Additionally, AvaTrade is following all the regulations strictly, and therefore, the bonus could not longer be credited in your account. You can review our Terms and Conditions about more information.

S*** customer service and broker

These thieves took £100 out of my bank without permission and now that I’m telling them to give my money back but they just keep on making so many excuses and even have sent me an email saying the funds should be in my bank account, which it clearly isn’t! Twits and the people on the phone when you ring them can’t even speak proper English, bloody illiterates.

you'll lose your money, withdrawl isn't possible and support doesn't exist.

just bad, I was having a pleasant experience but then I wanted to withdraw, and it just didn't happen, I tried withdrawing my money and they literally didn't let me, they stopped replying to my emails and so on.
basicly I was following this guy's signals, and I was profiting really well and then he just started giving me wrong signals and as I started losing my money I tried withdrawing my 250€ I invested, and he stopped replying to my messages, so I tried to contact Avatrade's support and they just wouldnt reply, literally ignored every email I sent them, and then I got a deposit done on my account of 250€, the amount I tried to withdraw, so yea, I'm stuck with this and done with them, just terrible, trust me and DO NOT even think about getting an account and investing on this terrible broker, believe me you'll lose your money 100%.

Scam broker

Scam Broker -Avoid at ALL COSTS!
Says it is Regulated-It is not ! ( only by some unknown Irish ? Institution- EEA )
Not FCA regulated- So that tells you everything !
Opened 2 x broker Accounts ( Avatrade and another broker) with £250 in each using the same EA ( with same settings) at exactly the same time. The EA took exactly the same trades at exactly the same times- and Lo and behold overnight AvTrade emptied the account and XM + 20% ! Need i say any more ?

Dear Petermech,

Thank you for posting your review.

AvaTrade is actually regulated in all 6 continents, and all the regulators are visible on our website. In regards to the EA experience, we would be happy to follow up and investigate further. Can you provide your account number?

Thank you!

Great Support

Great support thus far from Avatrade especially from Mr. John Honcharuk who checks on me constantly to ensure that everything goes well. He is very interested in helping his clients as he tries to maintain a long lasting relationship with them, which is so different from other brokers who are just concerned with the business you bring to them and not the individual. Highly recommended!
