Safely recommended broker

Service use: Live

Length of use: 3-6 Months

After 6 months with this broker in total 5 years of forex trading, I can safely recommend this broker for everyone. Good spread and fast support (even live chat). They have attracted bonus programs but not easy to claim so please read bonus terms carefully before opt-in. Various trading assets and payment methods, overall a decent broker!

Decent trading partner

Service use: Live

Length of use: over 1 Year

As per my trading experience with this company I have came to a conclusion that they are very decent trading partner when I rate their services like order executions, spreads, profit withdrawal etc. I am using the micro account for two years and the leverage is also perfect.

Price manipulation.

Service use: Live

Length of use: over 1 Year

Early on 10/08/2021 at 9 am (GMT+2), I checked Hot Forex charts to see if I can deposit a few dollars to take a position on my favorite pair (EUR/USD), when I opened the chart I saw a huge spike to the downside on the H1 and H4 charts, and I just thought to myself that it was a news driven move and then I decided to wait and let price break above a descending trend-line.

In the evening at 8 pm (GMT+2) I checked the charts again to see if price had broken my descending trend line only to discover that the spike had been removed on H4, here is the proof and other time frames except on the H1, here is the proof .

I got suspicious and went on to check charts from other brokers, specifically FXCM and Exness respectively and such spikes did not exist, I'm glad I saw this activity from HotForex early and I was not in a trade when they commited this fraudulent act. My account number is 430797. I am heartbroken, scared and swear to never work with this broker again.

Willing to hear client's voice

Service use: Live

Length of use: 0-3 Months

Previously had issue with trades where there is a huge gap between current price and executed opening price. After file a report to them, their staff call me to figure out the issues that I'm facing and willing to give a good solution. Overall not bad, recommended.

Jul 23, 2021 - 1 Star When I place a trade sell somehow the entry place is like 20 pips below the current market place, making me lose 20pips instantly.
At times when I see I'm having profit and I chose to close my trade, the closing price is hell so far away from the actual current trading price, ends up to be a losing trade. Hello?!?!?! Are you serious, it's a winning trade but when I click close it turned out to be negative trade. No way this kind of broker is regulated, they are manipulating your trade in any ways they want just to rob your money from you!

FCA broker choice

Service use: Live

Length of use: over 1 Year

I knew this broker through a friend and I researched carefully before opening an account (my ID is 2xx75). Through years, this broker keeps acquiring licenses (also FCA) and I haven't seen any hassles with my trading, fund and withdrawal except my trading ability. I believe any forex traders can find this broker reliable to trade. Recommended!

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.
