Dear Mr. Hamid,

Your account(s) at Trading Point which were registered under a limited circulation $25 no deposit bonus promotion which we had offered to new clients were suspended s you clearly violated the transparent Terms and Conditions of the promotion which can be found here http://www.trading-point.com/download/docs/tp-no-bonus.pdf and were also found on the promotional page through which you registered.

The terms clearly state:

The promotion strictly disallows account holders which have claimed the Free No Deposit Credit Bonus to use the credited balance and engage in forms of trading which include arbitrage, news trading and scalping. In the case that the terms and conditions of this promotion are abused, any open positions regardless of profit and loss will be immediately closed permanently and the account which has been monitored to be abusing the terms will be frozen.

Further more you engaged in Scalping (transaction no.1725054 which was opened on 28.06.2011 at 9:28:22 and closed same day at 9:29:17 - 55 secs).

Moreover both accounts you issued were used for trading although you had said that you could not log in with the first one.

The above has been expressed to you in the email received before your accounts were terminated.

If you wish for further clarifications feel free to email me directly at chris@trading-point.com or contact me directly at our headquarters at +357 25 029900.

Finally since you have already been personally explained all the above I would advise that you are a little more responsible when you use the words scam and fraud broker as those 2 words do not have any space within the boundaries of our Institution.

Thank you,

Chris A. Zacharia

Currently have an account with Trading Point and have had several dealings with their customer services and have found them to be of the highest integrity.

The only downside which I have come across is that I can't use Meta Trader Multi Terminal so running multiple accounts is difficult (not impossible) I am led to believe that it is on the way though.

I have an account with trading-point and i must say that i`ve not seeing a trustworthy
broker like this one since 2004 that i started Fx trading. From my own independent
research about this company, i found out that Trading-point is a pure
DMA(Direct Market Access) and STP broker.This kind of broker makes their money via spreads
and comissions, yet trading-point doesn`t charge any commisssion.I took my time to
read about earlier reviews and i found out that all the allegations about this company is
annoying.If you don`t want any slipage in your account, i guess you should open your own
brokerage company or go for a broker that will steal your money somewhere and coverup for
you at slippag, nothing is perfect in FOREX environment exept brokers takes your money in
a place and covers in another.Had it been that trading-point has another way of stealing
clients money, they would have being covering many sliperages, but what they see
is what they give. I will advice all traders to know their brokers very well before alleging
unneccesarily.I also commend the proffessional response of chris because before i opened
an account i wished to deposit through credit card and mailed them, the response was same
about credit card withdrawal that the remaining can go through bank wire depending on my
credit card issuer.In a nutshell, trading-point is honest and transparent enough and i
hope it will be like this with the company forever.I give trading-point FIVE STARS WITH

Chris A Zacharia, representative of Trading Point of Financial Instruments

Dear Mr. Norsaiful,

It is my understanding that the comments you pose further below, have been also posed to us in private some time ago, to which our compliance department and back office had explained the situation and had made perfectly clear our execution methodology here at trading point.

As always we pride ourselves in being fully transparent with our clients and as such we have placed the below comments in response to your review post further below:

In response to your pending orders, please note that we will always execute your orders at the best available market price.

We will not, however, execute your order at an off market price which we cannot ourselves obtain and hence cover your order at.

As we make our profit from the covering of our client’s positions (hence it is in our benefit for our clients to keep winning as then they will then trade more and in bigger volumes), it is important for us to be able to obtain a rate which is, at minimum, the same as your requested rate, so that we may make a profit from such an action.

For example, suppose that right before the news EURUSD is 1.4110 and you place a Buy Stop pending order at 1.4120. The market right after the news gaps to 1.4150.

Unavoidably you will get filled at 1.4150 where the market price is instead of 1.4120, as we ourselves must be able to cover our exposure, something which we cannot do at a price of 1.4120, as our liquidity providers also must cover their exposure etc.

As a broker we are here to make a profit from the spread, by covering our client’s position at a better price.

As such please be informed that we will not allow a client to create a scenario in which the broker is guaranteed to lose when covering their client’s trade (i.e. Cover the client at a worse price from our liquidity providers).

Furthermore, the video you sent us, we saw also from the ‘Navigator’ tab that you had in fact another account on the same platform, which, upon inspection, was not under your name.

Further to this there was NO PoA (Power of Attorney) with regards to allowing you to use such an account.

With regards to your withdrawal request made on the 12th of May 2011, please note that as your method of deposit (Credit Card) was not part of the CFT (Card Funds Transfer) Program, any excess amount (profit) that you attempted to withdraw, than the amount deposited, could not be sent back as per the conditions of your CC provider.

It is my understanding that this was made clear to you by our back office, within which email they requested that you supply us with bank transfer details to which we may send your excess amount to.

We received your bank details through an email on the 19th of May at 17:03 local time. Your withdrawal was processed the following day when the banks opened and you received a confirmation email.

In conclusion Mr. Norsaiful, we feel that your comments bear little weight, as we have promptly and transparently responded to the issue at hand in the past.

Furthermore, calling us liars when we are upfront and transparent with regards to our execution methodology and our practices is of lie in itself.

We have mentioned to you and have informed you of the ways in which we operate and in which we do not operate; if this is something that is suitable for you then you are more than welcome to join us.

Kind Regards,

To all users of the forex ... I do not believe in the trading, this point because there are many problems in trading this point. Its problems are: -
1. When I trade the news released Pending orders do not go places I take my target. Unfortunately the place is in the input, should not place ..... I am very disappointed with the trading point.
2. Withdrawal problems. I mengambik a long time to withdraw money from the trading point. They like menlengahkan time. With a debit card to say the reason there is a problem, while when I deposit money into a trading point there is no problem at all. For me they are liars .... Customers just want their money immediately
