Not just a leverage...

Service use: Live

Length of use: 3-6 Months

Usually when someone writes about AAFX, he/she remembers that AAFX has just a huge leverage. They also write about the fact that this way the broker gives its clients a lot of trading freedom and how cool it is.
But for me this isn't all that a broker could offer.
Personally, I noticed that a broker has a 2000:1 leverage in the last place. It has the other trading conditions that make AAFX a good broker.
For example, it is an opportunity to trade on a very popular trading platform MT4, brokerage have different accounts with slightly different trading conditions (but spreads are quite low on all accounts) and reliable servers. This is all I paid attention to when choosing a broker who has never disappointed me. So, I'm only happy to continue trading with AAFX.

Fun at first but it got ugly.

Service use: Live

Length of use: 0-3 Months

Yeah.... Thought I wouldn't be here doing this but I am. I read all the negatively about this company. Didn't want to believe it and fell victim to their scam.

Deposits and withdrawals are pretty quick. However, I began to take notice of my account balance. I can be low on a trade. All of a sudden, my margin will completely vanish off the screen. I was like well that's weird. I thought it was a glitch. I asked customer service about it. They were terrified when I brought it up. You don't know what you're talking about!!! Is gave me the customer service prompt and left!!!

Then on a different day it happened again. I contacted customer service again about it. He said in the 20+ years he's been trading. He's never seen it.

So today. 6/11/20. After the USA Federal reserve news. AAFX watched my trades and KNEW I was about to go into huge profit on GBPJPY. I had open trades. I closed the trades but it didn't add add to my equity. AAFX FROZE my equity and wiped out my entire balance down to -$2. I was up $384. With the moves today. I would have easily made over $20,000. These people are crooked. And yes I know AAFX is watching. I was in the mortgage business for nearly 13 years. I'm going to love spreading this on the internet. You probably didn't have the money to withdrawal anyway. I'll make sure you don't scam anybody else.

Dear Client,

First of all, if anyone uses the MT4/MT5 they know that the margin of the account showing next to the equity always. And if you saying its vanished then you probably you hide it from the view settings in MT4/MT5. Which you can open in one second. All the client who using these platforms knows about it very well.

Secondly, When you saying the broker froze the screen. Do you have any video proof of that?. The broker can never freeze the screen or price for any individual client they can do for all the clients but not one. That the MT4/MT5 limitation on the admin side if you wish you can confirm from any broker or the company metaquotes itself.

Lastly, Its very easy for the client to accuse the broker even when they have lack of knowledge about the platform and due to their connection problems or they are not connecting to platform. They think that broker freeze the screen. AAFX is the company which respect even $1 of the client and if the client provide sufficient proof and screenshots or video we will reverse or even delete the trade. So if you have any evidence of all this please email to support@aafxtrading.com and we will take a look and resolve it in 1hour.

My trading experience

Service use: Live

Length of use: over 1 Year

I took out all my money because I'm facing family problems. So you can consider this review as my thanks to the broker. I had a great 3 years with AAFX and the broker taught me a lot. It's not just about trading, it's about life.

Thanks to AAFX I realized that the world is much wider than I could even imagine. During these three years I realized that it is possible to make money by trading. I not only realized it, but also earned enough money.

It's sad that now I have to take my money back, but anyway I earned with AAFX and I am proud of it.
At the beginning of my journey I lost almost $2,000, but the main thing is not to give up. Trading is very complex and you need to learn before you can succeed.

Service use: Live

I've made 4 withdrawals - money came in 2-3 days, I think that's good withdrawal speed. Also there's no fees or commissions, so broker doesn't try to robb you with some additional spendings :)

I started trading because...

Service use: Live

Length of use: over 1 Year

I started trading because... it was fashionable. Probably such statements are rare, but it's true, and I don't want to tell some fictional touching story or that I immediately started to treat it as some serious business investment. I liked the process itself, I liked talking about trading with my friends, I liked when my trading day closed with a plus. But actually the understanding of what it is and how it can help me came much later, with experience.
All this time I've been working with one broker, there's no reason to change anything. Although I know a few people who change brokers regularly in order not to relax and find interesting services.

Negative balance protection is cool

Service use: Live

Length of use: 6-12 Months

Not all traders are lucky enough to earn money with a broker all the time and always be on the plus side. One of such unlucky traders was me. Everybody says that the higher the risk, the more you win. It played an evil joke with me and I quickly and easily lost the balance. But... Thanks to AAFX my negative balance was corrected and I didn't have to pay my debt to a broker. It provides negative balance protection, which is really generous. A big thank you for this :)

The most reliable broker

Service use: Live

Length of use: over 1 Year

Trading in my third year, the aafx was not my first broker, but was the most reliable. The aafx was a fairly obvious choice - good trading conditions combined with a large number of useful things, such as the economic calendar. Advisors and algorithmic trading are allowed on the trading platform, so it is very convenient. There is protection against negative balance. This is quite funny, because I do not understand why this feature is needed, but what it is, is good. The juiciest thing is the leverage, 1:2000, without any restrictions, deserves attention. If you are looking for a broker, I can recommend aafx, for me the company has become synonymous with reliability.
