Number One Capital Markets
Updated: May 19, 2024

5 star review by Elrond, Germany

I find N1CM a very good broker for forex trading. Aside from its low spreads and good leverage, I personally prefer the option to make deposits and withdrawals to my USDT account, although my trading account is USD based. There is a very small commission for funds exchange, but I receive funds on my wallet within one day.

Good broker for us stock trading too

Service use: Other Length of use: 3-6 Months
I am trading stocks from major US companies on N1CM for three months now on ecn account. I think that list of available stocks is good here, as well as other conditions. EA is supported on ecn account, which makes execution of deals much faster and up to now I didnt experienced that one of my orders has not been executed.
Spreads are quite good as leverage (1:1000 but for small deposits), for example on ebay spread is about 0.11 pips but usually 0.2-0.3 so quite good

Good broker so far

Service use: Live Length of use: 3-6 Months
in my opinion that's a quite good ordinary broker. Shame that i don't see where to create demo account so for the demo testing i use another broker. n1cm was chosen because of btc deposit and withdrawal to my wallet. usually it takes 1 day. support team is quite helpful, wish you all good luck

Do Not Trade With N1CM -Real Review

Service use: Live Length of use: 0-3 Months
I have had enough of N1CM and am now leaving to find a different broker. Below I will highlight the Pros and Con and then explain why Im leaving!

Pros: 4
1. Account deposit is quick with crypto 5-10 minutes.
2. Setting up account is quick.
3. Allows US Residents
4.Allows Hedging

Cons: 7
1. Withdraws are slow regardless of the method

2. Noticeable price spike differences in charts compared to literally any other broker on trade view.

3. If you ask them why anything at all is wrong, they will tell you nothing is wrong.

4. Chat is off and on, Its not 24/7 and they tend to be offline when you may need answers now! Like why is it taking so long to receive my money? But depositing the money is quick? If we are withdrawing and depositing with crypto, there shouldn't be a wait time, unless the broker is intentionally holding onto it.

5. If you trade with them, it doesn't matter what strategy you use, you will some how find that you do not make money over time regardless. They allow you to make money, but will make sure that you lose more money on the next few trades to compensate.

6. If you want to change your leverage, you have to ask their chat, and even after asking it could take up to 30 minutes for your leverage to actually change, and you can not trade below 100 leverage.

7. Over view- Ok now, Let me just say, I have a huge problem with brokers who have extremely fast deposit times, but then when you try to take money out its this long wait, and when you want to ask them where your money is, and why its taking so long, the chat isn't even available to give you an answer.

I have a huge problem with their charts as well and I have screenshots as well, and wish I could show you guys these 200-2000+ pip price spike difference between their charts and literally every other chart on trading view.

When I went to them showing them my screen shots of what looked to be criminal activity, they would tell me that there is nothing wrong with their charts when clearly their is.

When I look at their charts spiking in areas that are clearly stop loss hunting spikes, and then compare their charts spikes to literally over 50 other trading view broker charts, on the same exact time frame, and the same exact charts index or pair etc, and at the same exact bar on the timeline, and their are 200+ to 2000+ pip differences between N1CMs price spikes and other brokers, i.e. for example, "X" Broker chart spiked between [144.820- 144.567] and N1CM chart spikes between [144.820 -143.742] , and no other chart even comes close to 143.742, any trader is going to suspect something is wrong here.

But N1CM chat support, if they are online, will simply tell you what they "AREN'T" doing i.e "We do not manipulate the charts". How ever I specifically ask them what they "ARE" doing differently from every other broker who's prices do not even come close to spiking like theirs spikes, and they just tell you their is nothing wrong with their charts. I asked them to simply look at the chart and they asked "which chart"?

That kind made me even more upset, why you asking which chart? Im telling you in general, your charts are spiking way more than any other brokers charts and you are denying this to even be a reality, just look at the differences! It doesn't matter what logic you give them, they aren't trying to fix or help your situation, as long as they get paid, they do not mind lying to you and manipulating you in to making you feel like their is nothing wrong when their is.

Ultimately I decided to not use this broker for these reasons, they can not be trusted to help you, or tell you any truth. They will try to stop you out of your position and use high volatility market conditions to mask their movements. What I mean when I say that is if you question their charts, and why they spike so much more then literally every other broker, they will tell you "Their was an announcement and that announcement is why the price spiked and they will try to convince you that its normal for the price to spike to what ever extent that it spikes, even is their is a 2,000 + pip difference between there chart and any other. Its just a mask for their fraud, they will also tell you that charts will not be exactly the same as others brokers, and that it should be expected. Anyone who has been trading for awhile knows this to be true, but we also know that the prices don't vary that drastically, they should be relatively similar regardless. And for me to check over 50 charts on trading view to compare and not one of them coming even close to the spike this broker has during announcements lets me know they are masking fraud with lies, and they do really well with making you feel like maybe you are losing your mind, and nothing is actually wrong, when really everything is wrong. DO NOT TRUST THIS BROKER!

Sometimes its what they aren't telling you thats the problem, and not what they do. For instance, N1CM on their website they tell you all about their quick deposits, but skip over the fact that withdrawals are slow despite the fact the crypto deposits and withdrawals should be quick.

High Spread (Why am I reviewing from inside N1CM's offices)

Service use: Live Length of use: 3-6 Months
This is not the broker who cares about its retail clients. I was testing their platform with a $100 deposit but they couldn't meet my expectations on the order execution pace and the spreads are significantly high overnight.

I'm a fund manager, and I don't recommend N1CM to anyone.

DO NOT register with this broker! They recently closed one of my accounts when I deposited $125 for no reason. When I attempt to contact customer support I get a response days later on a weekday. The reason being im a us client but yet they allow us clients to deposit on their website. How does your website under terms & conditions say you don’t cater to us clients but us clients are able to register and deposit which is unprofessional and a red flag upon itself. Upon further investigation their license is misa (Mwali International Services Authority) which is stationed at the island of moheli which is not a legit regulatory authority such as CFTC, NFA, FCA, ESMA. Upon contacting misa to file a report a representative told me that their not responsible to whatever happens to your funds especially if your in the us. If that’s the case why is this broker allowing us client registration just to take their funds?This means any broker could register for a misa license to give the “illusion” of being regulatory and practice shady business such as this broker. Fair warning to anybody wanting to use do your due dilligence.

Service use: Live Length of use: 0-3 Months
I just need my money that i deposited to ECN trading account and also my profit to my standard account, that's all because i am tired of writing reviews and nobody pays attention to it.

Hello. The ideal way for any of our clients to amend any issues they might have is through contacting our support team directly by our various contact channels on our website. The misinterpretation regarding the concern you had was resolved.

To reiterate, N1CM processes deposits and withdrawals within 1 working day during office hours (0600 - 1500 GMT).

No Skrill

Service use: Live Length of use: Have not used
Started an account, and I was going to make a deposit with Skrill as is offered in their site.
This turned out to be BS.

Day trading efficiency

Service use: Live Length of use: over 1 Year

I recommend for news traders and scalpers Trading news works here because of the very tight spreads that the broker makes available. The spreads are also still tight during news releases and it is easy to make much more profit than when trading with some other brokers.The execution is also immediate and there are no delays in filling orders

Update to review left on Oct 28, 2021,...

Service use: Live Length of use: 0-3 Months
For whatever the reason N1CM no longer accepts bank wires from the U.S. My last attempt at sending $500. was returned to my bank, minus the $50 wire fee. N1CM did offer to include an additional $50 to compensate for it if I choose to deposit with Bitcoin.

Oct 28, 2021 - 1 Star Them: Hi
how can i help you ?

Me: Where is the $500. bank wire from yesterday?

It will be refunded to your account.


There is a problem with the bank transfer system.
You can use by cryptocurrency

It was done the same as before

there is a problem now.
May be fix until next week.

Will I be refunded the wire fee?
Will I be refunded the wire fee? And how long before I recieve it?

You can ask your bank.

Why wasn't I notified about it before?

Why didn't you ask us before depositing?

Like I said; It was done exactly the same way as before

These problems are not by us.

What Is "THE Problem"?

the mean bank wire

First you say: "There is a problem now.
May be fix until next week." Then you say: "These problems are not by us." Which is it?

I said it probably. These problems are not by us. Because the money has not been to your account.

So you really don't know do you? Let me talk to a supervisor Please!

Okay. You can send mail to our Financial team

Address Please.. Forex Peace Army will help!
