a good forex broker

Service use: Live

Length of use: over 1 Year

total forex trading experience is 3 years, 1 year and two month with hotforex, over all experience is good, good options to choose from, from crypto to currency pairs, very active support with good marketing materials, its not a secret they are very competitive in the field on forex trading. im pretty pleased with the service they provide, but as the saying goes dont put all ur eggs in one basket just to be on the safe side. Hotforex is relatively reliable never the less. charting can be done through the platform of through other means, doesnt matter, im sticking to mt4 and response time is very good, order execution is reliable. good for scalping, swings and long term trading, do keep leverage at a manageable range, I wont recommend high leverage to any one anyway. and good luck everyone.

Credible international forex broker

Service use: Live

Length of use: over 1 Year

I've started trading with this broker from 2019, after taking part in their VIP Contest. Overall, this FCA regulated broker is pretty reliable, they provide you most basic things an international forex broker normally have as various account options, payment method also advanced serviced as VPS or VIP account manager. Besides, this broker also has daily insights on markets and regular contest, don't try their demo contest, it's impossible to take any prize. The bonus program is optional that I don't recommend for new traders, that would affect your trading decision. I rated 4.5/5 star for this broker.

Previous review UPDATE

Service use: Live

Length of use: over 1 Year

I was contacted by HotForex representative. With his help the issue was resolved and money deposited successfully in about 30 min.

Jan 28, 2021 - 1 Star I am an old HotForex client dating back to 2016 or so. Haven`t used their service for some time and was attracted back by many new instruments.
First of all let us see HotForex information about Bank Deposit:
"Important instructions before making the payment
To avoid any delays with your transaction processing, please send a scanned copy of the bank transfer payment receipt to
Make sure your myHF Account ID, Name and Surname are included in the Bank Transfer description."
So to make a deposit faster you just need to send info to And if you are not, know what? They take your money to themselves!!! I made a transfer on Jan 05 and still no money. The support there is just to make standard answers NO problem solving.

Good PAMM broker

Service use: Other

Length of use: over 1 Year

I have been trading with this Broker since 2018. After 2 years, I decided to switch to PAMM because I don't have time to keep watching charts. HotForex PAMM is easy to use and I don't need to ask CS for any guidance. I picked some good PAMM and invest the minimal amount ($250-500). There were drawdowns but overall, I am making steady profit with HotForex PAMM. Recommended!
