Have a great day. Warm regards,
Almost year ago FBS stop working with client in Serbia. I kind a predict that could hapend so I withdrawl most of my money. Small amount was left on account. I was really angry on FBS because thay didnt notice my about blocking account, and I stil think that wasnt nice, but I didn't do anyting about that ( it was just about hounder eur).
Today I conntacted tham about that leftover (almost year later) . They unblock my account for withdrawal and I had my money in minutes. I didn't belive this could happend. That is why I'm writing this review. :)
FBS is great broker. I'm so sorry that thay don't work with clienst from Serbia any more!
Thank you for your honest feedback!
To our biggest regret, we had to make a hard decision to suspend the services in Serbia some time ago.
All Serbian clients with funds and active trading could close their pending and open orders and withdraw the funds via any of the available payment methods. We are always open to cooperation to resolve the issues of our customers.
We thank you for being a valued customer of our Company. May you have good luck and favor in your future endeavors.
Kind regards, FBS team.
Fine broker but... (Please read for detail)
But nothing is without mistake, i guess it is an only lack/draw back for fbs. Their TP (take profit execution), they always fix as it is (not once i had possitive slippage) in the other hand, many of order stop and stop loss is often get negative slippage (gap). For me its an obvious conditioned environment by fbs. Keep in mind they is ecn/stp brokers. So i should get positive slippage on take profit which i never get it, even if just for once!
I hope FBS hear it and make them best!
