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.

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.
