It's not long ago that I started to understand the market

Service use: Live

Length of use: 6-12 Months

And of course it helped me to have experience and a desire to understand what it is, how it works and what to do with it all.
In fact, I started working for this company almost immediately. At first, of course, I had some difficulties and questions. But I concentrated on working on a demo, I was attracted by the fact that it has almost all the features of the main terminal, so it helped a lot. I studied a lot of analytics, too. Both here and from other sources. And it was quite useful for my development and becoming a trader.

Excellent brokerage available for everyone

Service use: Live

Length of use: 3-6 Months

It was my second broker after the unregulated one and only now I realized what real professional trading is. You will feel this difference only in tiny things, but it makes sense. Look at this:
1. My previous broker was not regulated (it was registered as a financial company on SVG), so I was not legally protected. The broker feels this, so he is not in a hurry to solve some problems (you can't complain anyway). Here I see a completely different approach. Broker has 4 regulations, including FCA and CySEC.
2. The minimum deposit is only $100. This broker has a minimum deposit of $100, and my previous broker had a deposit of $1000, so here you need to test a broker 10 times less money.
3. That's a great support service. I asked about 10 questions and all my questions were answered by my email within 2-3 hours. The answers were detailed enough.
4. There is training. Only good brokers invest in training. These brokers do it too. Training here is good enough to help you understand the basics of trading.

Happy that found this brokerage

Service use: Live

Length of use: over 1 Year

I always dreamt up trading with tier-1 brokerage, but it's really hard to find a brokerage that will accept small traders. So, this brokerage was only one of options. I'm trading 3 years now and I'm 100% satisfied. Fast orders execution, reasonablle spreads, almost no slippages.

I've been invited to trading for a long time...

Service use: Live

Length of use: 0-3 Months

...by my friends. And I kept saying no. I didn't think it would fit at all...
And then I just gave up and decided to try it. And I'm glad I was wrong, because trading turned out to be a great thing.
Especially here, where you can train, learn different strategies, without problems to withdraw money, immediately know about important events.

Just an OK broker

Service use: Live

Length of use: 3-6 Months

I see that many people here admire the broker and the fact that the Ong accepts small traders. I don't think that makes any sense. For a broker it's just a way to attract additional clients and for the company it costs practically nothing.
Yes, I agree that trading with a broker is good, but I feel that a broker is designed for people with a rich wallet, I feel uncomfortable here. I can't even explain the reason, but that's my opinion.

problem with withdrawing funds

Service use: Live

Length of use: 3-6 Months

Hello! my name is Alexander Prosin, account number MT5 620000542. For more than a week I have not been able to contact my manager in this company and the support service is also not responding. there is money on the account and I'm worried. on Friday, July 17, 2020, I made a request to withdraw part of the money from the trading account, but they still have not arrived in my bank account. This is problem. if HYCM managers read this, I would like to hear their comments on this matter.

Tier-1 brokerage

Service use: Live

Length of use: 6-12 Months

Before trading there I've read many reviews and they were positive. Moreover, before trading there I've also contacted with some HYCM traders and their feedback was positive as well. Now, that's my turn to write a review.
In general, I'm satisfied with this brokerage. You should understand that HYCM is not a common brokerage, but tier-1 broker with high-deposit clients and really reliable regulations. So, it's always preferable to trade with such brokers, as they simply offer better trading conditions and higher security.
However, I think that will be fair as well if I'll note some disadvantages. This brokerage doesn't accept US clients and offer lower leverages for the EU clients (due to strict EU regulations)

Without a doubt...

Service use: Live

Length of use: 0-3 Months

Personally, I liked HYCM right away. It certainly doesn't mean that I started trusting it immediately and instantly opened an account here. At first I checked the brokerage, the reviews on the web about it were more positive than negative or neutral. Then I looked at the broker's trading conditions. And these conditions with positive reviews convinced me that it is worth trying what my trading with HYCM will be like. In general, I'm satisfied and will continue to trade with this brokerage, as it didn't give me reason to doubt it.

My interest is getting stronger every day.

Of course, it is difficult to say that trade and market research is some kind of entertainment. It's a rather complex and multifaceted job, which requires a lot of time, motivation and interest, and of course certain investments. Because if you still believe that you can make a million with 100$ seed money - get rid of this idea right away, because it doesn't work. You need good capital for a good profit.
I found this brokerage company myself, just browsing through the sites, studying trading conditions and user agreements. I understand that regulation also matters. And at this stage it turned out that finding a company with a license is a much more difficult task. So, I found myself here, the company meets all modern requirements.
What did I like about it?
- Fixed spreads, small from 1.8 points and no extra fees.
- Access to analytics from market experts.
- Fast withdrawal without excessive commissions, etc.
I think that these are quite loyal and advantageous conditions for both a beginner and an experienced trader.
