Dear User with Nickname Stay Away from Bellevue, USA,

As noted in all our answers, we have a policy to answer and cater all reviews on a one on one basis. You have posted a review and recommendation to fellow traders to take their Cash and Run; if you feel you would like to act in the same transparent manner in which both this website and Trading Point does it would be much more transparent and ethical to tell us what the particular problem you faced was and what and moreover what your account number is in order to make your statement valid and accurate.

Making a nasty statement with no supporting data is both unfair to the broker and moreover not very transparent as although you MIGHT be a real trader we do not have any facts or details of account number in order to first understand how we can help you if there is really a problem and secondly cater to this issue and preferably provide you feedback if your statement is valid.

We will expect your follow up to take further action.

I read all of these great things about this company on the internet and I don't know where they are coming from. It is terribly hard to withdraw any money from this company. I wish some of the reviews about the problems traders are having with withdrawals were posted when I started with them. I would have run the other way and you should to....TAKE YOUR CASH AND RUN!!!!!!!

Dear Watcher,

Although your comment has been already answered and catered on other respected for portals where you have published the same review under the name “traders friend”, I would like to follow up on your comment here in order to maintain transparency and our continued effort to answer all customer requests on a one on one basis.

In regards to your withdrawal delay I am once again attaching the answer which was provided to you by Trading Point:

1. When you are trading with a European licensed broker, funding and withdrawing is obligatory to come from the same source unless there is a real reason for this which we as a broker can explain to our regulator.

2. In your case you initially deposited funds to your account through your credit card. When you later requested a withdraw for 600 USD through Wire Transfer you were informed by our back office clerk that your withdraw had to be filed through credit card which was your original source of funding.

3. Once you did file for a withdraw of $600 through credit card your credit card issuer denied the transaction and was capped to $130 as your credit card issuer could not accept withdraws (was not part of the EFT program  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_funds_transfer) to sources exceeding the amount of original deposit.

4. Which is when our backoffice clerk took the answer from your bank and used it as proof to permit you to withdraw the remaining amount through Wire Transfer.

5. Finally when you did file for a withdraw of the remaining amount through Wire Transfer (Bank Transfer) the account information you provided were Wrong therefore causing the funds to be returned back to us once again.

6. I have read all the correspondence between our backoffice and your self and although I am very strict with my handlings I can easily state that they have been very helpful and very explanatory.

7. Finally the 1% fee you claim in your misleading video is totally false and I am categorically clear that Trading Point does NOT charge any fees when depositing or withdrawing. The charge originates from your bank which should take the time in investigating the fee which you have been charged as this Fee does not come from our side.

If you still feel your requests have not been met or have any more problems please don’t hesitate to contact me on marinos@trading-point.com .

I have had a very rough go with this company, no matter how much money I earn with them, I can never make a withdrawal. I have posted a video about my experience on Youtube, just put Trading Point Review in the search box, or go to my channel, Traders Friend and You will find my review. The video is composed of actual emails from the company, review the video and judge for yourself, and decide if this is where you want to burn your hard earned money.

I am a real trader with nothing to gain from this review, except to help other traders save their hard earned money.

When seeking a forex company look at the worst ratings, see what real traders are saying about the company, if they are saying things You can live with, open an account, but if not, RUN and take Your money to a broker that values You as a customer.

Trading with Trading-Point has been a smooth play. From the very sign-up till today, i haven't had any problem with the broker and if anytime a problem occurred i would press the live chat icon and would have my problem solved by the end of the chat. I salute them for their prompt and efficient customer service. The other thing that i like about this broker is its leverage 500:1, which is really beneficial to any small investor like me. The broker is registered with FSA UK and regulated by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC), because of which its legality cannot be doubted. Overall i like the broker and hope to carry out my future tradings with them.
