Trading point is a good broker. I got no requotes and trade opens so quickly. Their Bangladeshi representative is so helpful. Trading point support service is good, no problem but withdrawal could be more faster. But everything is fine to me. I wish they will start pamm service soon.

I must say That I have worked with Many Brokers but this Broker is Best Broker I have ever seen.......... Once I requested about the withdrawal my amount and this company sent my whole amount by mistake and they give me 400$ in compensate. Do you think any other broker can do this.

Dear Sam,

Thank you for your review and additionally thank you for noting the Pro’s of Trading Point however it seems you have a wrong understanding of trading terms and policies which have caused your worries about what you have noted as cons above.

Firstly on the representation you show on EURUSD spread is 2.5 pips and not 25 pips which is totally Impossible at this particular time in time. Please note that spreads at Trading Point are quoted on the 5th decimal place and are additionally variable according to market liquidity therefore averaging at 1.9 pips and going as low as 1 pip at very liquid times.

"Sell" orders are being opened at "bid" price and closed at "ask" price , "buy" orders being opened at "ask" price and closed at "bid" price.

On the chart you can see the graphical representation of the " bid" price .In order to display the "ask" line you need to right click on chart go properties/common and "tick" the "show ask line" option (please make sure that color settings of ask line need to be different that the color of background).

With regards to your screen shot which you uploaded and I have made some notes on an re-uploaded here http://www.trading-point.com/images/TP-screen.png I would like to point that the "ask" price (closing price of "sell"orders ) at that moment (20:27:51) was 1.32380 the "bid" price at that moment was 1.32357.

Your take profit of that specific order has been set at 1.32360 , therefore , it should trigger when "ask" price reaches that level.

That happened at few minutes later (20:40:58) the "bid" price reached 1.32335 and "ask" price reached 1.32358 , first time crossed your T/P level (1.32360) and ,as result the trade has been closed.

As for the stop/limit levels , please note that those are specific to all the instruments and are noted here --> http://www.trading-point.com/download/docs/spreads-micro.pdf ,EUR/USD is set up at 40points (4 pips) , which is twice an average spread on this instrument.

I hope all the above has cleared things for you, if you might need additional help or clarifications in regards to online trading, forex or the MT4 platform you can contact me directly at chris@trading-point.com and I will be glad to arrange a session with one of our account managers before you decide to start trading with real money.

I would advice you take the time to understand the basics of forex trading to avoid any future problems and possible losses with real funds.

Hi Chris,

Many thanks for your email and response here.

I would like to take back my review as I have realised my error. Yes, I am very new to Forex trading and I am happy to admit that I still have not understood the basics, therefore, my previous review is void.

I will give MT4/Trading Point the benefit of the doubt and give another review in a month to two months time.

I hope no inconvience was caused.

Warm regards,

2012-03-19 2Star Ive been trying to find a good broker with MT4 platform and had done alot of reasearch/read alot of reviews. Out of all of the MT4 brokers I came across, TP appeared to have the best ratings so decided to open a demo account to get more accustomed to MT4. Even though I havent been trading in the industry for very long, Ive done extensive research on trends, markets, indicators etc and I also have accounts with other brokers it Option Bit, eToro.

Operators at live chat are very helpful and supportive.
No requotes/slippage.

Wide spreads (EURUSD is 25 pips!)
SL and TP have to differ from market price by AT LEAST 40 pips (is this normal???)
Orders dont close as they should.

Put in an order to SELL EURUSD
Executed @ 1.32396
SL @ 1.32441
TP @ 1.32360

The market price went past my TP TWICE and my order was still active. I have a screen shot here (look at the last 3 candles: http://s154.photobucket.com/albums/s275/destinyscheeks/junk/?action=view¤t=TradingP.jpg

This was the SECOND time this happened! First time round, my order closed when prices closed past my TP and then started to increase.

Very disappointed but Im fortunate I didnt loose out on any real money!

Couldnt withdraw my money. Everytime I tried they come up with new "company policies". Gave up. Forget it. Huge spread compare to other brokers.

Dear Kostadin,

The spread at the closing of the trading week which closed on the 6th of April 2012 was very much affected by the Easter week.

Liquidity in the market through out the week was very low and especially on the closing of the market.

When you are trading with a broker offering variable spreads similar to the interbank market spreads are 100% dependent on the liquidity of the market.

However even with low liquidity spreads have not been in the range of 4-7 during last week but were ranging in the range of 1.9-2.8 on average.

Thank you,

Chris A. Zacharia – Official Representative of Trading Point of Financial Instruments
