Review: AvaTrade Australia is offering the CFD for ASX200 index but you can't trade it until 11 am. Considering that the cash opens at 10am, all you can do is to watch for one hour how the price go up or down and you can't take any action.
Even worse example : ASX market was opened on 25 Jan but AVA had no quotes for ASX200 index?
Explanation given on the phone: everyone in the office took a day off on 25 as 26 was Australia Day public holiday ??? WHAT?? Really? So I was locked in my position till 27 Jan waiting for AVA brokers to come back from their long weekend.....
Tried to find any information on their website - it was a note that trading ASX index is closed on 26 Jan till 6 (am or pm??? anyone's guess).

Review: AVATRADE - Trade with NO Confidence!!! It's a broker that cheats! When their dealing desk can't handle the way clients trade, and client making money, they deem clients' trades "Arbitrage"!!! Deemed "illegal" to them, and they would take away your profits! If you lost though, they don't give a hoot!!!! When pressed to give their definition of what constitute "arbitrage trading", they couldn't say a damned thing! NEVER EVER TRADE WITH AVATRADE!!!

Review: Hi everyone, I am struggling with Avafx since longtime but my money is stuck in the platform hence with them.

Poor customer support
No technical analysis or guidance provided
Delays in deposit transfer to account which creates panic and you have to hedge at higher levels.
Although they promise you trade recommendations, they leave you to trade on your own and incur losses.

Please save your hard=earned money and dont trade with avafx.

Review: Good broker with proper online customer service. No problems withdrawing money either, it just took a while about 1 week to wait but it is mentioned by them.

Review: Extremely poor customer service.. They just want you to deposit but try getting your money back if you can..

They changed/doubled the margin requirement over one weekend just like this which caused a margin call.. They are not allowed to do that..

AVOID these scammers

Review: I would NOT recommend Ava to anyone. I've used them for 4 years. My account was flat with no money and I made a deposit, and proceeded to make a few trades. When it comes time to cash out they said I owe them $275 dollars from 4 years ago.

Don't be tricked by their 'bonus', as it's NOT a bonus. It's just borrowed money.

Review: In the business for a while. Postponing approving the documents under different pretenses. Not to mention raising their voice over the phone and refusing to send confirmation over the mail.

Review: In my account history, it clearly showed I have made $5000 AUD deposit on 24/12/2014 and AVA credit me $2500 bonus on the same day

Later on, i made $5953.74 AUD in profit on 29/12/2014, then i submitted a withdraw request of $5900 AUD on 31/12/2014.

On 02/01/2015 I made a loss in my trade and lost all my remaining balance in the trading account.

On 05/01/2015 AVA trade cancelled my previous withdraw of $5900 AUD on they own decision, then deducted $2500 from my balance by not giving any reason or explanation.

As the result, i could only withdraw $3400 now, instead of $5900. But $5900 was clearly my own profit on the first trade. I contacted Avatrade, they did not give me any reply. Also, I complaint it to FOS, FOS gave them 45 days to reply me, but Avatrade did not give any reply. And then, FOS gave Avatrade another 28 days, but they still did not reply. At last, FOS Again gave Avatrade another 7 days, but Avatrade replied on the 11th day and they still did not return the $2500 profit to me.

What a terrible broker!
