Special Notes:

As if all the other problems were not bad enough, YouTradeFx's mail server appears to be blocking the emails of many clients who are owed money.  The FPA is aware of email issues with YouTradeFx's servers that have been happening for several years.  The fact that clients could lose all ability to check on missing and blocked withdrawals is a very good reason for no one to open an account with YouTradeFx.


January 20, 2014, SCAM CONFIRMATION:  Based on the available evidence, the FPA now considers YouTradeFx to be a SCAM.  YouTradeFx is now blacklisted by the FPA.

The FPA recommends AGAINST opening an account with any branch of YouTradeFx or any company associated with it.  If you have an account there, the FPA recommends that you attempt to withdraw your funds immediately. 


ATTENTION:  If you are a YouTradeFx client and your withdrawal request has been ignored for more than one week, please go ahead and leave a 1 star review.  Then CLICK HERE for more instructions.

Review: Dear Readers/Traders,

I have the YouTradeFX account balance $5511.24 and all transactions closed, and I am having many troubles with the requested withdrawals of my money (March 11, 2014).
I didn't receive the promised e-mails for confirmation and my account manager (Daniel Colin - a pseudonym - the company uses this procedure) doesn't know when I will receive my money. The company support has not responded anything until today.

I written today to Mr. Jonathan Logger, as follows:
"I am an YouTradeFX client and I have trouble withdrawing my funds from my live account (my withdrawal request has been ignored for more 1 week, from 2014.03.11).
My account manager is Mr. Daniel (so called Colin) - Romania
Please, let me know how to do.

I am already prepared to file a criminal complaint to my national authorities and international authorities, because at the current YouTradeFX address (from website) - "788-790 Finchley Road, London" are registered some companies with absolutely undeniable evidence of criminal activity (Laundering of monetary instruments).

Also, I have found contradictory info about address:
- YouTradeFX website Email: Live chat: Phone: +44-203-3183333 Fax: +44-207-7859329 Address: Youtrade Capital Markets Limited, 12 The Shrubberies, George Lane, London Country: United Kingdom 2013-12-03
- YouTradeFX Headquartered In United Kingdom Regulated By ASIC (Australia), FSA (UK) Us Customers No Phone +44 203 3183333 Fax +44 207 7859329 Address 35 New Broad Street, George Lane, London, EC2M 1NH, 2014-02-10"

Because I have a written and signed document from the company (Letter of authorization and Power of Attorney to perform actions and provide instructions in my account) and all the necessary proofs I will file a criminal complaint to my national and international authorities and I will request a legal interdiction of this company activity in my country (YouTradeFX has a website in the Romanian languge and a local representative - an illegal company as I have found recently, YT Global Management SRL).

Unfortunatelly I didn't verified the company profile before, because of one particular situation.

All Traders, be very carefully with YouTradeFX (your gain, our goal).
YouTradeFX is a REAL SCAM and I have many proofs about this and I sent to them - support and to my account manager!

Thank you ForexPeaceArmy!!!

Review: Account number = 173184

My friend whats to withdraw his money, its just 84$ but he is already waiting for more then 6 weeks now.

My friend is deaf so:
I have called his account manager and talked about issue and said
My friend withdrew $84 and later that day it was canceled by the name Eli.

Then he whats to withdraw again, but this time he can't
because all of the sudden it has a withdrawal limit of a minimum of $100

A couple of days later the money was gone.
So I ask his account manager "Where is the money

Next day it was there..
I asked him for the second time that my friends wants to withdraw all his money...

So we have give him the Pay Processor Details and he or the Financial department withdrew the money for my friend and he is still waiting for more then 6 weeks now..

So I decide to post on this form in the hope to get my friends money back
From now on I will close my orders and will take out all my money as well.

I hope to all the people that we get our money back ASAP and that YTFX will close the doors ASAP and that they all go to Jail.

Review: Was trading with $100.000,00 of equity and all stop loss and take profit set and suddenly account was disabled. Minutes later logged on Metatrader 4 with accoun on 0. Saw 2 transactions in history that I didnt do. Now my take profits would be done and my actual profit would be $184.000,00. What I have now? $0. Have documents showing that and still 0 money.
Now they say that are checking and nothing. Scam.
