I've being trading with liteforex during last 3 years. Service is excele t, execution is less than 1 sec. Better to use their free Vpn ( if you have lite points in their cop club) I realy like their analytics thru made an application for it, try it really helpful. Btw the changed their agreement and there is no such point 6.8 I think it because the launched ecn accounts and got new lp, seems they offer aggregated liquidity cause sometime spread is really low.

I want to withdrawal all my money. Jann Hehl, my account manager called me and offer me a swap-free account without any restriction, when I not withdraw my money. Because he know that I most traded EURTRY long for days and weeks. So I do not withdraw and traded for some month. I made big profits and then Liteforex closed my account, give me my initial deposit back and steel all my profit. They wrote: "Dear sir,
The security department of LiteForex has finished the investigation. We regretfully inform you that our counteragent has recognized your activity as aimed at the obtaining of illicit risk-free profits by the hedging of swap-free positions in LiteForex with another broker and has canceled all your trading results respectively....". Yes I hedged some positions, nobody tell me that is forbidden. Where stand this? I wrote them,they can charge swap for the period since it is swap-free, but to cancel ALL trades is not ok. They are big scammer.

Dear Ihejirika Celestine O

We have contacted liteforex and they confirmed that you funded. Your liteforex account(205606) will be credited with 109,07900 within 24hrs.

It was after this they accepted that they received my money. But they never made this money available for trading on my trading platform. Rather they told me to buy vps from them to secure my deposit.As i was processing the payment, they wrote that same day giving me ultimatum. Please Read:-

Liteforex Fri, Oct 11, 2013 at 6:07 PM
Hello,Ihejirika Celestine O,

We are giving you till 15th -oct-2013 to activate your vps or we will claim your money with immediate effect..
If you are finding it difficult to pay through bitcoin,you can pay through perfectmoney because we have settled with perfectmoney.Our prfectmoney account money is U3441307..

After this I processed payment for the vps but they sent another mail the same day that they have claimed my money. Please Read:-
Liteforex Mon, Oct 21, 2013 at 11:17 AM
Dear Ihejirika Celestine O

We has today being the 21st October 2013 claimed your $120,000 after failing to activate your vps account also have sent letter to both and to put their signature down to be aware of our claim.


They later confirmed the receipt of money for vps and wrote me: Please Read:-
Liteforex Fri, Oct 25, 2013 at 10:07 AM
Dear Ihejirika Celestine O

We have received your money for vps activation,Your money will officially be released on 1st Nov. 2013.No more fees again,you are eligible to have your money.


After this promise to pay my money, they refused to reply my mails on this issue. I did not trade with this money because they did not make it available on the trading platform. So when i now ask for a refund, they refused to return my money till date. If they could behave like that to my real money not the profit i made, then i advise all traders to RUN AWAY FORM SUCH BROKER, Their license should be withdrawn and their brokerage status deregulated! this is broad-day ROBBERY! Traders beware!!

I traded with LiteForex for 3 months, the reviews they got worried me in the beginning but turns out that they are not that bad. I didnt get any bonuses there and I think that sales should spend some bonuses on their big traders..
Treviso, Italy,
Jun 12, 2014,

I am more and more angry of the behavior of LiteForex!
They stole my profits (over 31.500,00 euro! - clause 6.8 is a real scam!), they made me wait months my capital and now no longer respond to my emails. LiteForex is a Ponzi scheme!
I'm still waiting for 500,00 euro for two months ...
I have created a website to tell my experience:
Stay away from this broker!

2014-03-02 1 Star Hello, I’m Luca Novello, old account MT4-F-122435 (now closed by them).
LiteForex broker steals the money of the customers:
when I ask for a withdrawal, LiteForex does not give money;
LiteForex closes customer's account;
LiteForex change the profits made by customers (see its Regulation 6.8);
LiteForex unfairly investigates its customers for recycling;
LiteForex tells lies to justify his actions;
LiteForex says to contact support, but then does not respond to emails.
LiteForex is a scam broker.
Now I will tell you about my last experience.

I noticed a couple of days ago that the account balances are not correct: they have changed the balance of my account? Have they used brute force to change my earnings?
Now I tell you the numbers that were until 20/02/2014:
Money transferred from Italy to LiteForex: € 30.505,00
Interests: € 241,83
Total Profit: € 33.062,51
Total swaps: € -453,24
Account Balance to 12/28/2013: € 63.149,21
On 12/28/2013, request for withdrawal: € 31.500,00
On 02/19/2014, request for withdrawal: € 31.800,00
After two months of email, chat, facebook, controversy, on 02/24/2014 LiteForex pays € 31.500,00 (ticket 12/28/2013)
Withdrawals now pending: € -31.800,00
Balance: € 56,10

When I asked the last withdrawal (ticket 21721091 - € 31.800,00) the balance of my account was found to be € 56.10

Now I have logged into LiteForex's site and I see the following:
Total profit: € 1.653,21 instead of € 33.062,51
Balance: € 446,80 instead of € 56,10

If there were problems with my trades, because don't they tell me before? They have arbitrarily changed the results: is this scam or correct behavior? Are these behaviors of a society fair and honest?
Dear LiteForex, restore immediately the correct balance and profit or I'll report you to the police! Do you think that an international tribunal gives reason to me or to you? I ask you to withdraw all my money! If you do not give me the money I gained, I ask you also moral damages.
Remember that I have proof of everything I say and these are not insults, they are proven facts!

2014-02-19 1 Star I'm Luca Novello, account MT4-F-122435.
LiteForex is a crook and a thief. My account is over € 62.000. I've withdrawn 31.000 but I am very angry because I do not receive my money. I made two withdrawals:
ticket 19494077 - 28/12/2013 - wire transfer: it is still pending from December!
ticket 20003860 - 15/01/2014 – Skrill: this has been canceled because they would not give me money not even with skrill
Have passed many days and I'm not receive precise responses. I have already written a lot of mail and chat.
Now I'm desperate. These thieves are stealing all my savings!
I have a lot of documentation which proves what I am saying.
Stay away from this broker! Look at other reviews on other forums. LiteForex is scam!

Issue escalated to Traders Court Grubson vs. | RESOLVED
At first everything was OK. When you making a deposits the broker is very nice to you. Personal account manager (Thomas) was calling me twice a week. My first withdrawals was made very quickly and with no problems.

But some day (about 13 and 14 may 2013) there appear problems with closing trades. It was impossible to do anything - I have got "off quotes" message from the platform. After two days of trying to close my trades, the trades was closed by stop loss.
I have been contacting with support with this case.
Than I tried couple small trades to test if the problem still exist and it did.

At 2013.05.17 I have decided to stop trading for the while (until LiteForex tell me what is happening) and I have made a withdrawal request of half of my deposit.

Then I get a message that my account is blocked and "Your profile is still under investigation. Checking may take time up to 14 working days. When the investigation will be finished we will inform you regarding to its results. "

The investigation is still not finished and there is no contact with the broker (email / chat / phone). They are not answering my emails.

! Highest level of caution for trading with Liteforex (Straighthold Investment Group) !

I was a customer of Lite Forex. At first I was happy with the services of this company. The problems appeared when I have send my first withdrawal request.

On the Forex Peace Army webpage ( I posted the full story of my contacts with Lite Forex. You can read the summary:

- The amount of funds collected from my account in Lite Forex is over 6750 USD.
- Almost all e-mails from the company are anonymous (signed only for example “AML Department”).
- Since 18. February 2013 – the employees of AML refuse to contact me.
- A chat-operator refuse to give me the contact address to the real office of this company.
- Dial-up (phone) connection with my personal manager is not possible.
- A chat-employee also refuse to give me the contact details to the head of Lite Forex (Straighthold Investment Group).
- I determined that on the Seychelles is only a virtual office of this company.
- Lite Forex is not regulated by FSC. Only regulation is RAUFMM – self organized institution. It means that there is no external oversight of this company.
- Wire deposit operations take place through an intermediary company. It is not possible to establish the bank account details (include real address) of Lite Forex.
- Lite Forex doesn’t respect his own trading agreement. An client agreement which I signed has been broken a few times.

In my opinion Lite Forex is not trustworthy and does not focus on offering forex services. I do not recommend a cooperation with this company.

LiteForex is a SCAM, THIEF (U can use the worst name to describe them). They are fond of cancelling profit and formulate a useless agreement quote to back themselves. But if it is loss, there wouldn't be any thing of such.
They did this to me and four of my friends. Initially, we tried to play by the rule, but they kept on deleting all our profit with different excuses even for uniform orders placed at the same time on different account.
Run from them because they are more wicked than the devil.

I just want to report what Liteforex is doing that is not acceptable.I ve an account with them and i have been trading for about 5 months and i had made a withdrawal of $500 from my account which was successful but in December when i wanted to withdrawal $2700 from my balance,i was told that my account is not verified and every document including court affidavit that ve been submitting have not been accepted. My worry was that since i made the first withdrawal without issue,other withdrawals should not have given me problem..

i have file scam case against lite forex, after all fake promise by lite forex people, i still not get any contact and not getting my money back. they scam people, no regulation!stay away!

Can refer here:

2012-08-17 1Star On 2012.07.30 i have traded with Lite forex with account 874548 for $500+$150bonus, and there's a point i think my trade is losing, hence i would like to rescue my trade by buying the opposite direction as my losing trade. I did check with the live chat operator Alexandr Viassov from Lite forex,to make sure if i open a buy position a day before, can i trade a sell position for same currency, and i was told i can do it, and double confirm if this hedging is allowed, and again the answer is Lite forex acclow hedging without restrictions, if deal's duration of orders is more than 2 minutes, and triple confirm is hedging is allowed even with a same currency pair, and got the answer 'Lite forex allow hedging without restrictions'. Hence i decided to open an opposite trade,which is different amount as well, because i would like to add on my trading amount. However the market turn another way and my account 874548 which initially losing now earning, so i request withdraw, and Lite forex said i tried to steal their 30% bonus by open opposite trade. I have checked with Lite forex operator that hedging is allowed, and a screenshot can prove it. I didn't steal the bonus and in fact, i lose $2300 in my opposite trade. Also, Lite is not canceling my order and profit only, they just took away my account from my profile and take my deposit straight, pretending that i never open the account and deposit. I don't get reply from them when i asked them to explain the situation. I highly suspect that's the trick that Liteforex scam away client deposit and profit.

I have been with liteforex since 2005, since i was newbie into forex. They were are strong company , honest and integrity no doubt.

Actually they were the pride of the russian's for people only doubted that a russian broker would be a scam, but they only delivered and payed promptly.

I stopped using them later in 2008, as i found other broker with better conditions, nothing to be bad about LFX.

The problem can i think in 2010 or 2011, when they introduced me to back to try them with the $200 bonus where we had to complete certain 20 lots to unlock $20 bonus at a time, with their new pamm account.

This bonus is where the big mistake of this company came into my view as everyone had the big complaint of slow server, re-quotes, invalid prices errors and also the please wait that waiting never end. I do use default deviation by 100pips to avoid re-quotes as i know it, but still the issue.

It was sad to see that the broker had now gone bad, maybe because they have too many clients than they can handle or dont know, maybe the breakup with UWC broker have made them lost interest in

Another big problem is they seem to have some fake ticks plugin on all the instruments, especially forex. Where the price actually fake moves 2-3pips up and down (maybe to not fill scalping orders or maybe to deliberately create re-quotes) I check the prices with 6 other broker platforms and Liteforex is the only one where the price is making fake moves of 2-3pips up and down when the price on others didn't actually do that.

Also, i had referred hundreds of people in my newbie days in 2005 to 2008, i thought i will get rebates all my life when those guys start trading in LFX, but suddenly all my referrals are gone! I ask them and they say, from now on you can only earn IB rebates for a period of one year from a client. I was so disappointed, i brought clients for nothing... did social service.

The only good is the liteforex indexes, which only liteforex has them that are pretty good for checking currency strength and weakness in real-time charting form.

Anyways, I really cannot recommend or use this broker for any serious trading reasons, unless they are honest with their server and the plug-ins they are using to make trading unprofitable

I wont leave a rating as i don't wish bad of this company, but as of whole presently its been a disappointing experience to work with them.

2010-10-02 5Star Liteforex is such a old broker. Their my first mt4 brokerage when i started trading forex 5years ago, i used to use marketiva platform before i got introduce to mt4 thanks to liteforex.

They have been a strong, trustworthy and solid broker despite all the investor fears due to them being not NFA regulated and stuff.

Well i must say they do have typical broker issues like the usual requote, average server and average spreads and stuff. But overall their a solid trustworthy broker for a Russian Market maker.

I also need to tell you their the pride of RUSSIA, they have made people learn that RUSSIAN businesses are good, honest and reliable. Most people are worry about Russian mafia operating on the internet.

I also feel so special when i lost their birthday bonus deposit and the re-credited the bonus to me writing "NICE SURPRISE" in the comments, they also sent me free 5$ OKPAY to try and test it with them

Overall i will rate them undoubtedly 5/5 stars and i urge all those in doubt you can trust LFX 100% with your trading and your funds.

2007-11-29 04:51 4 Stars I have been using the liteforex broker ever since last year and never found problems, i own like 7 accounts in them some with 1:200 some are 1:500, cents and dollars accounts. What makes this broker special is their Liteforex Index which has helped me make a hell lot of better decisions in trading.

I would only recommend this broker for light trading with anything less than 2k-6k or the cents accounts, this is seriously not a broker or for that matter any kind of broker thats not regulated or market makers for investing 100k and expecting to get a 1million dollars tomorrow, most likely whether liteforex or marketiva or any such broker would rather dump your account that pay up such amounts.

Its one of the only choice brokers for people who have problems with wire-transfer to like for people from India who cannot wire transfer abroad due to national bank restrictions ect.

Its good enough if u want to make a living from trading and plan on profit takes lower than 2-5k on a monthly basis.

Made a bank wired deposit to my account, spent 11days and it was never reflected. Contacted several of the representatives, spent hours and days of fruitless chatting with them. Situation not resolved, blamed their banker for the delay. I feel so sad because my country men warned me not to go close to this company. I have heard so many negative complains about them, now am a victim. Please stay away from them, dont regret later as am doing now.

I’ve been trading on Floating Spread with Liteforex for a while. In my experience, their client support is great and their execution and spread are ok for me. Requotes happened sometimes but acceptable. The only drawback is that the speed of withdrawal for bank wire is very slow !!
I’ve deposited lots of money into their UWC bank account so far. I decided to make a request of withdrawal for all my funding due to my personal financial plan on this Wed. However, they kept to tell me that my request withdrawal is always in queue for in the past three days. I’m a bit worry this time cos it is plenty of money. I hope that Liteforex representative can help me to speed up sending my money to me. The following is my withdrawal detail:

Date: 2012-05-23 09:25:41
Ticket: 8425545
Amount: USD 50,714.92
Account number: MT4-63606

I will update when I receive my money. Cheers!
