This is an update :

I am an affiliate of another Australian broker, which i will not reveal since this page concerns HY Markets only. The level of professionalism of my new affiliate manager far surpasses the likes of Noreen Muyco. (HY Market's affiliate manager)

I would also like to thank the admins/mods who uncovered the truth behind my previous message and indeed confirm the inaccurate reviews here posted by Noreen Muyco, (whom obviously even my grandma knows more about marketing than her)

I will be putting in some effort to spread the word about this company, thanks to the admins/mods efforts.

*I am not giving any stars for this review as this is an update

2012-04-02 1Star Big scam. The affiliate manager Noreen is very unprofessional. Worked for one month, at the end of the month was informed that she would send over $4000+ worth of commissions. Then 1 hour later said that sorry a report just came in and my clients were only worth $1000, big scam.

She is known to use psuedo-names to comment on review sites to reflect positively on hy affilaites, like some comments here, which i daresay is very similar to Noreen’s english.

Source : Experience as a HY Affiliate and collected more than $200,000 worth of commissions from them.

loyal to their clients

Service use: Live

Length of use: 0-3 Months

Actually, I can't call myself a trader yet, let alone a successful one. I'm just learning this business for now, but I can say that I'm very satisfied with my choice of a brokerage company, they are really loyal to their clients and help me get used to it.
1) There is a wide range of tools for market analysis.
2) There are training materials for different levels of training - very useful.
I really like it!

General review

"Please note, that according to the customer agreement HYCM reserves the right to close client accounts without providing a reason."

Been reading this statement by HYCM themself over and over here on FPA..this is so unethical. How can such practice exist in real world? As if it was a strategy to avoid profitable traders from their company.

The fact that they accept them at the first places and than say "Please note, that according to the customer agreement HYCM reserves the right to close client accounts without providing a reason" later on is just too unethical practices.

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.
