So far so good

Service use: Live

Length of use: 6-12 Months

They allow 5usd deposits (good for testing), in some cases its 50usd min deposit depending or location which is still good in my opinion, I hit my return of investment last may and got my first full profit withdrawal. excellent tradable instruments and fair spreads.

HotForex IB Scam

Service use: Live

Length of use: 0-3 Months

I made a deposit using HotForex Local IB in Pakistan.
Now I made withdrawal, I never received the money and when I contacted their support, they started making excuses that I did some thing wrong and the manager will contact me to discuss.
it is a withdrawal not a war accord that you need discussions.
I am sure I have been scammed by these guys.

FCA trustful broker

Service use: Live

Length of use: over 1 Year

I know this broker a long time ago and it's totally genuine because it's regulated by FCA. After Payoneer crisis with Wirecard, I recommend all FCA licensed brokers . I also did many withdrawal from hotforex to my Neteller account within last 2 years and never get any problem. Currently I have stopped trading for other investment but still recommend hotforex.

Widening spread and automatic trade placement

Service use: Live

Length of use: 0-3 Months

I sold GJ which has a spread of 2.7pips and set my tp to 133.75 but hotforex increased spread to 24pips during the Tokyo session and when price was at 133.71 my tp was not triggered. As if that wasnt enough, I had a sell trade with entry at 133.45 and manually closed it at 133.48 but hotforex recorded it as 133.79 and automatically added a buy of 0.00 lot at 133.79 and minused $15.82 from my account.
I complained and I was told its normal for spread to widening during such hours which I admit but by 24pips is damn too much. The maximum I have seen is 4pips but hotforex increased theirs to 24pips. For the second issue, I didnt get a reply

Binary options trader switched to forex trading

Service use: Live

Length of use: over 1 Year

I was first introduced in binary option trading, later I moved to forex trading due to the binary site closed by the broker. Since I am trading with hotforex. They have smooth trading software mt4 which execute limit orders on time. Initially it was hard to take long or sell but with the passage of time I had concluded trading setups which occur during the week. I am not an intraday trader so i only wait and sit for these occasional trading setups which helps me boost my earnings from trading them. My total trading experience is 3 years now trading with live funds and it is satisfactory.

Hot Forex Scam

Service use: Live

Length of use: over 1 Year

Hello everyone today i am sharing my first time bad experience in this digital market. i had work with hot Forex since past three yours and more. i was good confident and trusted in this broker. don't know the reason but last few weeks i heard something bad and cheapest things of hot Forex. i didn't believe but once they did it with me i was scared and shocked how it could happen with this.. HF team sent me an email that you account will be closed due to "Clause 36.2" company account agreement. you can withdraw all your fund within two days. i shocked and withdraw but they deduct my balance and did't refund me...i have evidence about it..this is the experience of my one account. in other account they deduct my all profit and remove my accounts without any reason.
so i advice to all my friends and friends of friends that be aware and don't trust on HOTFOREX and their team. other wise you will loss all you profit and balance

Not a bad broker

Service use: Live

Length of use: 0-3 Months

Plenty of tradable instruments, including cryptocurrencies. Pretty good leverages. Good for newbies as they let you deposit as little as $5. A varied choice of deposit options. Support available 24/7 but only for 5 days a week.
