This broker offers 100% Credit Bonus, doubling your equity but when you reached your deposited amount they will stop you out and wipe your account even you haven’t reach your extra bonus! My leverage is 1:1000
I’ve lost $350 in total with this broker which should turn in profit if they didn’t stop me out.
The chart is going reverse when they stopped me out!

1 year satisfactory results

Service use: Live

Length of use: 6-12 Months

Joined the trading back in 2016 on a friend's recommendation but didn't trade till 2019. The account was approved so last year I opened a demo account and practiced it for another several months. Initially all went above my head and it took me a lot of patience learning and repeating on MT4 demo. Honestly, while watching video lessons it came in mind that i had learned everything while sitting on demo it seems i knew nothing. However long story short! time keep rolling and with the passage of time i evolved with the skills required to make money. So i move on to live account to test my skills back in November 2019.

Here are some of the details i wish to share while i traded with the hotforex live account. Although i had small funds approx 600usd, i had managed to withdraw partial of this amount in profits which was processed last week. I am mainly trading GBPUSD and Gold is also my favorites. I did shorted last month and then i shorted GBP last Wednesday too. The overall trading is convenient. Spreads are average above all with no slippage or requotes. I withdraw last week which was satisfactory.

Update of review: Archived account

Service use: Live

Length of use: 3-6 Months

After 9 days of waiting I got my money back from HotForex back office. They sent me an email with info that my wallet is credited with money from my archived account.

I am satisfied with the result and with communication.

I still think that they should at least warn me before archiving an account in order to remove my money from trading account to main wallet.

Apr 17, 2020 - 1 Star I' ve opened trading account and made a deposit to real account. Then I started to test trading strategy on DEMO account. Because I did not use my real account they moved it to ARCHIVED ACCOUNTS and also my money. When I contacted them through help desk I just receive answer that my request is forwarded to another department and that I have to wait for my money be recovered. And that takes days, days, days.... :(
I really can not believe that takes so long to coordinate between departments and recover my money and return it back to my wallet.

Seems to be legit place to try online trading.

Service use: Live

Length of use: 0-3 Months

I'm relatively new to trading, especially FX (had some short experience playing stocks) and I opened account with this broker to try currency trading. Got credit bonus from them but I don't use it. Made some money trading on oil. After 2 weeks I requested a withdrawal from them and they processed my payment in the same day, no withdrawal fee, the money was in my Skrill account in next day. Can't say nothing more about them but I rate them 5 for now.

Good support broker

Service use: Live

Length of use: over 1 Year

I have been trading with HotForex in last 2 years and got lot of support from opening account, document verification and trading consulation. If the spread is larger and it was not as promised, they reimbure with the spread charged or widened, funding and withdrawing are smooth without and hassles... Overall a decent broker and good support.

Not a bad broker

Service use: Live

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.

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

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.
