Another VICTIM of their FAKE ECN pricing.

Service use: Live

Length of use: 0-3 Months

I got convinced by an Introducer of their to try them out but believing this conman was the worst mistake ever. I basically put 95% of my capital with them and not I have zero left in that account. The big issues with them is then order don't get filled at the price requested that you see on their platform, this means the prices they show are fake when you complain they blame slippage but I know this is a lie as the exact same trades in other brokers don't have the massive slippage you will get here. Spread over the rolls is massively high and you will get stopped out in a second. Stop loss orders will get filled sometimes 40 pips or more away from your target price. I started to not use stop loss order with them as its not possible but that's also risky.

When you explain this to their support they will ignore you for days and just say nothing is wrong, when you finally find someone who is not arrogant they pretend to show compassion but in the end treat you like a fool and make you feel like its your fault even though its not, its not professional and condescending. They always try to come up with some sort of excuses.

My advice is to stay away, this company cant be trusted they are not ECN as they say, their prices are fake and frequent trading is impossible.

Now I lost 95% of my capital and I have to go back to work, please don't fall into their marketing trap as you will become a victim like me.

Reliable Trustworthy Broker
Been using FPMarkets for more than few months. I admit after trading with multiple brokers, they are the best. If you are trading EURUSD, GBPUSD , they have the lowest spreads. their platoforms are EAs friendly ( execution, spreads ). Amazing customer support, they make sure to fix any issue on the spot. Never had problems with withdrawals. Professional Broker. Thank you FPMarkets !

they try to convince me with lies..they do not return money cuenta 5318347

Service use: Live

Length of use: 0-3 Months

Everything is a lie, false, false opinions, it is a false broker, I can not withdraw the money even through PAYPAL, impossible, I have asked many times, once they have your money you will not catch it again, and they put false opinions here to that you fall into the trap, they only answer stupid things, everything is a lie. They say that they have added money to the account that they scammed me, yes, but I cannot withdraw or withdraw, it is a double scam, stay away from these rogues, They are putting false opinions and I tell you all the truth, they themselves put false opinions here in the list. Fraud.T

SPANISH : Todo es mentira, falso, opiniones falsas, es un corredor falso, no puedo retirar el dinero ni por PAYPAL, imposible, lo he pedido muchas veces, una vez que tienen tu dinero ya no lo vuelves a atrapar, y ponen opiniones falsas aqui para que caigas en la trampa, solo contestan estupideces, todo es mentira. Dicen que me han añadido dinero a la cuenta que me estafaron, si, pero no puedo sacar ni retirar, es una doble estafa, alejaros de estos granujas, Estan poniendo opiniones falsa y os lo digo a todos de verdas, ellos mismos ponen opiniones falsa aqui en el listado. Estafa.

Dec 1, 2020 - 1 Star I thought that these things no longer existed, do not put your money here, the stop losses are worth nothing, they lengthen the candles, the charts and everything that is necessary to jump stop of any size, I only lasted within 3 days, with only two orders I already realized that they are something incredible, how can there be even brokers of this type? Is it that we can no longer trust anyone? With this broker that lengthens the candles and closes the stop loss when it feels like it there is nothing to do, also if you complain by mail, they will transfer the problem to each other. Thank goodness I have captures of everything. scam

Reply by FP_Markets submitted Dec 4, 2020 Dear Client,

Thank you for your review.

We confirm that your stop losses were triggered correctly around midnight server time. Thin liquidity close to rollover results in a wider spread.

We appreciate your understanding that slippage is an unavoidable part of trading and generally occurs when there is low market liquidity or high volatility.

As a gesture of goodwill, although you did not meet the minimum deposit requirement, we have fully refunded the loses for the above mentioned trades.

If you have any questions or doubts, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time.

FPMARKETS will STEAL your profits! SCAM Theives

Service use: Live

Length of use: 0-3 Months

Scam broker. My account number was 5311219. I placed trades with FP Markets expecting ECN execution making a significant amount of money in a short period of time. Instead they stole back my winning trades and told me they offer ECN pricing, not ECN execution. Just because I made a significant amount of money in a short time they said my trading was “Abusive Trading”. They will make any excuse as to why they feel they don’t have to pay you. NEVER use this broker if you are a winning trader. Terrible customer service on top of a misleading website that declares regulation. Be warned your account will be opened with an entity that is not CySec or ASIC regulated. Absolute joke of a broker that is to never be trusted. They will STEAL your profits back and make outrageous claims as to why. They only want you to lose!

one of the best brokers FPMARKETS

Service use: Live

Length of use: over 1 Year

I have been trading with FPMarkets platforms since 2019. I am using different brokers and I trade mainly XAUUSD. I would say FP has the lowest spreads (specifically GOLD ) and fastest execution on their servers. Customer Service is amazing, Thank you Nizar for helping anytime I need assistance. Not really sure why other traders still complain when this broker gives best trading conditions with Fast and easy withdrawals
Always recommend this broker even for big investors.
Thank you FPMarkets !

Customer support not knowledgeable and treat clients like dumb customers.

Service use: Live

Length of use: 3-6 Months

Prior to contacting Fp markets' support, i am not able to trade indexes and i tried formatting my computer and reinstalling everything fresh. so with everything new and fresh i tried placing a trade of AUS200. it is not placing a trade so i contacted support. Timothy from FP Markets support kept asking the same questions over and over again wherein i already told him that i have already done everything he said prior to reporting the issue. and he never came up with a real solution just ended the conversation once he received reprimanding of not knowing what to do. he treated clients as if i was a new born lol. insisted that my use of indicators (he mentioned robot) which are not is affecting it. i have been using the same indicators with several other brokers and no problems! FP Markets has to lift their client services standard. i think fpmarkets is 20yrs behind.

Dear Client,

We sent you a follow up email in this regard, however we did not receive any response.

We regret that we provided you with a poor customer experience — it is the exact opposite of what we pride ourselves on.

Unfortunately, our live chat agent was unable to identify the reason you could not place trades for AUS200, nor we received similar reports from our Clients.

Should you still experience issues, please reply to the email we sent you so we could investigate.
