My HotForex wallet ID is 197219 and I been with Hotforex Team Bangladesh over a year now. I was struggling to stay and walk in the FX market and loss good balance due to not maintaining and getting support from anyone.

Everyone give education and support even Hotforex does it also but the reason why I have Choosen Obidur Rahman and his team is because he is clearly a Good guy with his excellent talent and experience not only he cool me down and pointed out my mistakes but also have not seen any better Broker who allow almost every trading style then Hotforex. So I feel and it's true that Hotforex is one of the best Broker and Obidur Rahman is exceptional.

I have seen many people complaining about platform doesn't work etc and complaining about services, we all know when it comes to something that doesn't work in our favour we try to fine issues and asking for returns but my question is when you guys make profits do you give any support for them? I guess no is you answer. I have never faced any issue and if there was any that was dealt thoroughly.

The amount of support people can get from Hotforex Bangladesh team will never get anywhere. They are the best team at present I believe and with their inspiration I want to Go further in Forex Market.

So with my personal experience I can only say don't look another broker who might be good company but without support and help none of them can give you a clear path.

Anyone have any question please do let me know and I have happy to communicate and give them right direction.

Many Thanks

My overall six months experience with hotforex is good. I usually do not trade much yet I make extra money every month while buying and selling popular currencies. They have low spreads and I get my payments every week whenever I request. They really worth giving a try.

After further research I decided to give this broker a shot since they are popular in my region and most south east Asian countries. execution wise the broker is doing fine, stable with very minimal slippage. in terms of trading instruments I would say they provide what traders need, no more no less. withdrawals are processed based on note/reminder, it will be processed with in the day as long as the submission is before working hours. they are strict with the documents submitted, even during opening an account, gov IDs, bank statements etc, on this case I don't mind, though It can be a bit tough for a trader from an Asian country, but it only shows the good level of security. I give this broker a 4/5 since I have only been trading for a couple of months now, but so far the results seems to be promising.

Be careful with which is supported by hot forex. This is my second bad experience with forex trading.

All my deposit has been wiped out in 1 night.

I have posted a review on 2016/05/10 regarding my experience with Hotforex. So following my previous post, I would like to mention that my withdrawal was completed and my profit has arrived.

2016-05-10 No Rating I have been trading with Hotforex for a few months now. At first, the customer service was really good and they used to solve my issues really fast. So, I decided to open an account with them.

However, unfortunately slowly things got weird after I traded a news which resulted in a bit over than 10k profit for me. Immediately, I received an email that my account has been flagged by their system and my bonus will be taken away. Well, my bonus got removed from my account with no explanation even though I emailed them. Following that, on the next day I traded with my usual strategy, but this time my positions was executed with no profit or lost. But, again i received an email from them that my leverage will be decreased from 1:400 fixed spread account to 1:100 without any explanation which I found very frustrating.

However, I carried on and did another trade with them and as I am a news trader I opened two positions following US-Unemployment rate and I experienced terrible slippage. In addition, it took more than 30 seconds for my position which was on profit to be closed. Anyway, my position ended up from positive 1000+ to negative 1840 hitting my stop-loss.
During these few months of trading, I have never experienced such a huge slippage and slow execution with them. Luckily I have recorded my trades and have it available.
I would be more than happy to give to anyone of you if you wish to have a look.
Now I am waiting on my withdrawal request, and the worst part is that they have sent me three emils so far cancelling all three of my withdrawal requests and in their last email they came up with this excuse that i need to submit my passport again as a proof of identity which i found very unnecessary. So I would like to tell all of you out there base on my experience that surly HotForex did not act as a true ECN broker and they are not happy with the clients those who profit.
I really hope i get my Money back from them and I don't wanna judge too early but my pervious withdrawal requests were completed immediately. Now my only choice is to wait.

I will keep ya all posted regarding my withdrawal request.

Great broker for scalping, fill orders with pretty tight spreads on majors, I try to avoid Asian sessions, so don't know how good are spreads in this times. Had only 3-4 requotes in 200+ orders, what's very impressive for retail brokerage. Support is fast and qualified though I had only a couple of things to ask them about. Withdrawal fee on web-money is s bit high so I switched to skrill. Overall I'm pleased to trade with HF

I have been trading with Hotforex for months and I have experienced that deposit and withdrawals got more difficult for me as European client since September 2015.
At that time they changed their deposit/withdrawal system by forcing Euro-clients to convert all amount into US dollars. This is probably due to the fact that their finances are not based in Europe.
This results for example in conversions fees and higher bank wire fees for withdrawals.
My experience:
I was charged with 40 € fees for a withdrawal of 2000 €
I was charged with high conversion fees for withdrawal on a neteller account, because the amount was converted from Euro to US dollars and then from US dollars to Euro
Depositing through "Sofort Banking" (which should be credited immediately) was credited to my account 2 working days after depositing
