One of the best brokers I deal with.

I have been trading with these guys for over a year now, and they seem to be a broker where you can park sizeable funds. I believe their spreads are much better than many FCA regulated brokers out there. Also I have never faced any problems with my profit withdrawals or full capital withdrawals.

I would suggest Atom8 as a broker to anyone who is tired of brokers ripping you off your pockets.

Their developer conned me out of $500!

So I came to these guys looking for somebody to code an EA for me, to which they pointed me to a guy they'd "been using for years". He told me the total cost of me EA would be $2000, which I thought was a bit steep, but agreed to pay $500 upfront with the rest when he'd completed it.

He said it would take around 2 weeks to code, and I tried to be in some sort of contact with him most days to see how it was going. After two weeks he said he needed more time still (his replies were getting more and more infrequent), so I agreed and eventually a month and a half on from our initial contact, he said he'd finished the EA. But what he sent me was totally incorrect, the rules were totally different from what I'd asked for. So I explained the rules again and he said he'd need another $500 to rewrite the code. I said this wasnt acceptable as it was his error that had produced the fault and not mine (I hadnt reexplained the rules any differently) when I then spoke to my contact at Atom8 he said he'd have a word - but then never got back to me.

While waiting, I got a guy on MQL5.com to code it for $100 and he'd finished it by the end of the day exactly the way I wanted it.

Now 4 months on from the initial contact and I write to my contact at Atom8 again and he says he no longer works there, and the developer has deleted me on skype. All in all this company has just conned me out of $500. Do not go near this broker!

I have been trading with them for a while and they are not the one that you want to trust your money with. I Funded my accounts multiple times but they drained me out. They do all that the market makers does and more. They hang the Mt4 platform so that you are not able to close your trade when you are in profit especially in high volatility moves and not necessarily in news time . In Short run for your life and enjoy your money in a decent restaurant, otherwise give it to charity for the needy people. This is not my sole experience, look up the web and you will find many who share such opinion .

I've been using Atom8 for approx. 8 months now and am extremely happy with them. They have top notch platforms along with fantastic execution. What really impresses me is their customer service which I have to say is the best I've seen within the industry. I would highly recommend them.

Waiting on my WD for more than a week - it sounds it will be more than a delay ! They approve to send my money latest up to today - but I see it already in MT4

I think we have to open an case!

Dear Tom, You submitted your request for a withdrawal on a Sunday. We attempt to process all withdrawals within 24 hours of receipt. As Monday was the first business day we saw your request this would give us until Tuesday to process your withdrawal. Your funds were sent on Thursday for which we have already apologised to you for as we were in constant communication over this time. At worst your withdrawal was delayed by 2 days, not for over 1 week as you have stated. Kind regards, Atom8 Support

Hi Roman & other FPA readers The supporting documents submitted were not approved by our Compliance team and we had emailed you about this also. We are an FCA regulated firm and have arguably more stringent requirements for Account opening than other Brokers. We will continue to support you Roman in finding a solution and hope to serve your trading soon. If you have any issues with our support, please provide evidence of what you felt fell below standards and we will investigate. Best wishes Atom8 Support

I've been interested in financial trading since 2001 and have been exclusively trading forex since 2004. I was in fact one of the very first people to leave a review on this site way back when it was known by the less PC (but far more honest) name of ForexBastards and when the owner-cum-ordained minister, Dmitri Chavkerov, was still going by the pseudonym, Felix Homogratus. In this time I've experienced the good, the bad and the ugly in terms of trading systems, regulatory bodies, other market participants and yes, brokers. It's a cut-throat world, full of false promises and chicanery.

Hard as it is to find a consistently profitable method of trading, it is by no means the only hurdle which needs to be overcome in order to be successful. Up there with sufficient capitalisation and 'having your sh** together', psychologically speaking, is the necessity of finding a brokerage which will work with you as a client in order to fulfil your ambitions, not against you. This may seem like a bizarre concept for newcomers to the markets: "aren't ALL brokers in your corner?", you may ask. The answer is a big fat NO! They want you to sign on the dotted line, they want your deposit and they want you to trade often so they can live off the spread and/or generated commissions, but the overwhelming majority don't give a rat's ass about whether you sink or swim. I've been through more brokers than most people reading this have had hot dinners. It doesn't matter what type of broker either, as I've run the gamut from third world market makers to the biggest and (so called) most prestigious prime-of-prime operations. I've been through so many simply because I am good at making money and when I win, either my broker or their liquidity provider loses. Unsurprisingly, they don't like this and so I have had to lead a gypsy existence, hopping from firm to firm and being responsible for great swathes of the Amazon rainforest to be torn down in order to supply the paper for all my account applications. That was until I discovered Atom8 at the beginning of 2014...

They'd only been in operation for a for a few months when I found their website. Actually, this isn't quite true. A friend of mine from Poland (thanks, Hyoobz!) was the one who found them and who informed me of their existence after having read an online interview with their CEO. I am very glad that he did find them, for in spite of my world weary cynicism and general contempt for all things brokerishy (not a word, but my review = my rules, ok?) I decided that I'd give them a go. My thinking at the time was that as this was a new company they were probably still very green and that I'd be able to ... how shall I put this delicately.... 'screw them blind', before being kicked out! That was my thought process going in. But these buggers had to completely shatter my worldview by being the one thing I never expected from any brokerage anywhere in existence - decent human beings. I learned humility very quickly and have nothing but praise and admiration for the Atom8 team. From the range of platforms and leverage to the ease of withdrawals and deep liquidity, they provide nothing but excellence across the board. Most remarkably, I have finally found a place which really does allow me to trade unhindered and I am so grateful for this opportunity. I don't give out faint praise; Atom8 are in my estimation the best brokerage on the planet and I feel very lucky to have a trading account with them.
