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.

Marko, insta forex will steal your money.
You will not be able to withdraw and they will ask you for more money.
Yes we do charge a fee, but that is very small compared to the fact that you lose all your money with Insta Forex.
They are a scam company. Be aware.

The ACTFEE is also called account fee.

It represents a monthly account management fee but it can also be added back to your account. No problem there.

Review: 4 months ago I did a withdrawal request I have seen nothing so far..
Today I found out that they charge me $25 as an account Fee, this is because being inactive for 30 days..

They can't charge because I did a withdrawal request 4 months ago
Still waiting on this day for my money to be processed.

To me this is stealing and they can go to jail for that...
I wait for this week and then I go all the way...

Sending emails and doc and proofs to all the units that I need to, to get my money back

Review: I have a Forex account (september 2013) with YouTradeFX n ° 175637 of about $ 8900 (and two operations still open in the loss of about 600).
More than a month ago (20-07-2014) I made a request through your site a couple of samples (the first in 6000 and the other 2200 USD), but I did not have the required transfers.
I ASK TO HAVE THE CREDIT FOR A TOTAL OF 8200 USD to 2250 USD + credit. I have family with two small children PLEASE give me back my money ... I only ask this!

Review: Since I noticed that my e-mails and requests for information about my withdrawal requests were simply ignored, I started searching for some reviews about this YTFX. Your reviews made me understand what sort of scam company I had bumped into. Now the only thing I want (apart from getting my money back, of course) is to cooperate with your association to fight against such cheaters.

Review: YouTradeFx seems to be a scam, they don't allow me to withdrawal my money and neither nobody answer my emails or return my phone calls since 10/04/ should open and account with this company.

I try to get legal advice about it here in the UK, and they say this is a "no can do" since this company is based in Australia, lucky enough I got the ASIC registration number of this company's (938528) and I am about to place an online formal complain before I recommend you all do the same.
