Try Pending Order & you know why I rated 'Terrible'. I almost can't have a decent price for 90% of my pending orders. Most of the time there are very unusual big gaps or slippage that kills my account. Tried lots of other brokers, this is one of the worse. Bonus credited is not instant & always late, too.

I have been trading with this broker for few months and they have really proved to be honest and realiable. My only concern is the SWAP issue, I have friends who are trading with different broker and there is nothing like SWAP on their platform. I am not trying to downgrade T.P in any way but I just want to know what the public think about SWAP especially how it affect a long term transaction. I will appreciate Mr Zacharia's or any official representatives comment, also public comment.
Once again especially for people who are searching for a reputable and honest broker, I recomend T.P as one of the best broker.

I have been with trading point for several years now and have experienced no significant problems.

The first withdrawal I made was slow to make it to my bank account, 7 days, but I suspect government interventions in banking transactions across international borders created this delay. Since then, no problem.

Things to remember in trading over borders: never deposit more than you can lose because if the party you are trading with isnt honest to begin with you will likely never see your money again. Its likely not worth the effort...

Trust but verify. Open a demo or real account with another trading partner and compare the quotes you are receiving. If there is a serious discrepancy, take your losses and move on.

Simple, old school rules that allowed business to be done on a handshake.

trading point is honest reliable and friendly from what Ive experienced over these several years.

happy trading!

Dear Thanwath,

This is my last response to you before I inform the webmaster of the FPA about your false and deceiving reviews with facts and detailed instructions.

For the very last time you were using an account that was credited for free by a No Deposit Bonus so Trading Point has not in any way avoided to pay any funds rightfully owned or earned by you.

When Mrs. Theano Pourouti asked you questions about your gender, you responded in an email swearing back to her with no reason wishing her to die which is totally unacceptable in general.

Your overall lying and attempt to ruin the essence of this forum is totally unacceptable also.

You were granted a free no deposit bonus and you did not have the kindness to explain why you were using somebody else’s email address when your proof of idendity did not match the email used.

The employees of Trading Point including myself have been very tolerant and professional with your unacceptable swearing in emails towards us.

Your account is permanently locked and it will not be opened for any reason and for any excuse. With the same right Trading Point granted you free credit to trade on a Real Account, Trading Point has permanently closed your account. This decision is final an non negotiable.

Summing up, you should learn to have manners and not lie on forums by running the reputation of a licensed financial institution which granted you a free bonus to try their services. If you wished to use it in a proper manner like thousands of other happy clients you could have the dignity of answering the simple email why you were using an email address that did not belong to you.

This is the final response to you by Trading Point, if you follow up with more false and deceiving review we will be informing the webmasters of all reputable forex portals and forex review sites with proof and facts.

Thank you,

Dear Castiel Tan,

Due to the fact that you review does not make any sense to anyone related to a licensed forex broker, can you please have the kindness of following up with more details so the case is more clear.

The facts you state above do not make sense at all;

Trading Point or any other European Licensed broker cannot accept a deposit from you by Credit Card and simply close your account; its makes absolutely no sense for any licensed broker to engage in a practice like the above.

Please follow up with more details of your case and we will follow up with a fully transparent explanation based on what you state.
Please include MT4 ID to ensure that your case can be catered in a speedy fashion and moreover to ensure that your case is real.

Thank you,

Dear Thanwath,

In your review you claim that Trading Point has cheated you and is not paying you your money and additional you have advised that your account has been blocked;

Besides your review being deceiving it also NON Accurate in regards to the fact that Trading Point has cheated you in any way.
The account on your name which has been forcefully closed has been funded for FREE through a free invitation only NO deposit bonus which we have offered to existing account holders; the terms of this offer have been 100% clear stating that no duplicate accounts are permitted as well as no form of news trading and scalping for the purpose of this bonus.

This NO deposit FREE bonus is given to clients as a gesture to test our execution, our trading terms and our MT4 platform in a real environment and possibly accumulate profit which they can 100% withdraw if the trading from which it occurred is non abusive.
In regards to your particular case “The Broker” has not cheated your money as this money was not funded by you but awarded by “The Broker” in this case Trading Point and you reacted to this gesture by being abusive and clearly violating the terms and conditions of this offer.

I would strongly appreciate and advise that before you post inaccurate reviews on sites seeking to act as an advisor that you are more responsible and moreover more reasonable to a broker with trading conditions and terms which are 100% in best interest to the client which in this case is you.

More than 600 people have been awarded the same bonus and the vast majority of them posted “Thank you” messages to Trading Point for its gesture of awarding No Deposit Bonuses on sites like the FPA, earnforex.com and Facebook.com so overall I consider this review 100% inaccurate, Non Ethical and Overall Deceiving.

Moreover you have used very offensive terms in your email to one of our backoffice officers Mrs. Theano Pourouti when you were asked questions about your email address which I find totally unethical and unprofessional as first and far most even if the broker was to be wrong it is very unethical to use unethical “swear words”to a lady which simply asked you standard procedure questions.

In case you need to review the terms and conditions of the $25 No Deposit Bonus Offer I have once again posted the link here http://www.trading-point.com/download/docs/No_Deposit_Bonus-Terms_Conditions.pdf for you to review.
