Honestly the best broker for retail trader

Service use: Live

Length of use: over 1 Year

I have been with Dukascopy since December 2018. My trading style is scalping, usually 10 pips TP with 50 pip SL, on average taking around 10-15 trades/week. I have traded only regular currencies, and left positions only from monday-friday. I have started off with 18.000 EUR and funded more along the way.

Things that have or have not happened with Dukascopy:

- Always, without exception, fast and immediate withdrawal, anywhere from 1-20.000 EUR. Sometimes the money was on my bank account (i am from EU) in the same day.
- I have never experienced any slippage whatsoever on my trades
- I have been using their JForex platform and my god, that is one smooth, well structured platform that also allows server based trailing stop (which Metatrader does not)
- You have several brackets of commision automatically, so if you start off with moderate 15k or something and trade moderately, you will be moved automatically to next bracket - paying LESS commision per trade than before
- EU brokers got f*** with that 1:30 leverage directive, but with Dukascopy (Swiss broker) you can have 1:200 - while still being very regulated broker with up to 100.000 chf funds protection
- When i have deposited the funds, they have asked me about my funds origin and continually kept asking anytime i have added more money to my account. By Swiss law, they are required to keep an eye on traders, so that they do not go into debt trading and or put their entire personal wealth on Forex account. Normally, this is really great, it shows great respectance of the law, strictness and trying to protect you from yourself as a lot of people gamble away their accounts.

It is also the only reason why i have left Dukascopy. I have traded successfully for a long time, so i wanted to put more money on it. I was told directly, that taking investors money and putting it on Forex, or taking a bank loan and putting on Forex will not be accepted. If i right now, wanted to take someones 100k to trade and flip for profit, with Dukascopy, i will be prevented to do so.

In conclusion, truly great broker. I have enjoyed their services very much and they have been entirely reliable. If you are not planning to put on Forex anything beyond what you have in your own pocket, this is the best broker.

Have been using Dukascopy for 18 months now. Love the platform. Tight spreads, feature rich and reliable.

Only had one issue in 18 months when platform became unresponsive whilst trying to close a trade. Dukascopy support replied almost instantly and refunded the full amount of the trade based on when i had tried to close. Very good support

I've been using Dukascopy with the javaws JForex for a week, these are my thoughts. It has most of the tools you need to make money in the markets.
Platform and price feed has been stable the whole time, I don't think I have seen any disruptions which is good. Other than silly spreads on some
of the crosses around the US close.
Volume commission is a minus.
I opened another currency account to do internal transfer. It costs a fee and is not instant even though you get the spot rate. Even
after several hours it was still not complete, another minus.
All in all I think this is an OK broker.

Extremely Horrible racist experience

Service use: Live

I wanted to open account with Dukascopy but they refused my application because my net worth was upper than 1 million, I sent all of my fully legally documents from Canada for source of my fund but they refused my account because I was originally from middle east!!!!! They are so racists, they think the people who live in Middle East are criminals !!! All of my documents and my bank account and my sources were fully legally by government of Canada !!!! And they were the only broker who refused me.
