They seem to be making money by cheating their clients. Seems like whenever their monthly revenue goes down(may be because the clients quitting the company) they find ways to make money by other means. I read thier bonus advertisement on a forex forum and I thought that I could use the bonus as an extra cushion during my trading. Before registering I had checked with their support team at least twice that in case if I can't complete thier volume lots trading then can I still withdraw my money in the future. They clearly said "Yes, you can take everything except the bonus amount ". After 2 months of hard work and with my friend's assistance in the setups I was able to make about #1296 USD. Due to unavoidable reasons I thought I would withdraw for now and may be start my trading after january. But now the broker does not want to give me my profits.. They are forcing me to complete 60 lots else I cannot withdraw my profits. I had confirmed this twice before I deposited my money and then once recently when they emailed me saying that I cannot take my profit. The support guy confirmed the same that I can withdraw everything except the bonus. I have the proof of that communication. It is my hard earned money, but I am now struggling to take my own money.

I have not had any withdrawl problems (YET) but there trade execution and requotes are awful.
I addressed this with support and they were no help.
Now i am wondering if it's a scam,
Oct 20, 2012,

I am writing this review about Pax Forex because I recently joined with their "Be Online" Live Account with a "No Deposit Scheme" for USD 200. But this review is not only for this type of broker, but also for other brokers which we can find here on this website.

First of all, I would like to mention that Pax Forex broker has lots of "Requotes" when I place orders which is well programmed by the Dealing Desk.

Second problem is that I cannot place Stop Orders less than 50 points between TP AND SL.

Third, when you place orders for Scalp trading, find out that I am losing the trade and I want to close the trade they won't accept this order and a message will come like this---"MARKET ORDER IS TOO CLOSE". So, you are bound to face a losing trade.

Fourth and the last problem is that when you chat with the company person online, they will simply say that I should send an email to solve the problem. This means that these persons who chat with us is trained to inform the clients like this when I put my problems in front of them.

There is nothing like that one would benefit, from this scheme of "Be Online" USD 200 deposit.

The final thing which I find and which I want to write in general is that after going through the reviews of many forex brokers I HAVE A VERY MIXED FEELING, BOTH GOOD AND BAD.

The reason for this mixed feeling is simple. Almost all Scamming and Non-Scamming or well established brokers with good reputations have some percentage of negative reviews. Their plan is simple. The first plan which I can understand is that they decide each year how much percentage of clients to be scammed and how much percentage of clients not to be scammed. Some forex brokers who are totally defamed and labeled as Scammed on this website is that their ulterior motive is to scam 90% of its clients and leave the rest of the 10% as happy and satisfied clients. It is just the opposite of the well reputed brokers like Dukascopy, FXCM, etc. that they keep 80% to 90% of their total clients happy and satisfied with their services and victimize the remaining 20% or 10% of their clients each year. HENCE, THE VALID REASON OF THIS MIXED FEELINGS!!

I would be very careful about trading with this broker. There demo and live servers are the same and the account man for live accounts is Green! Sounds like a big red flag!! Live chat cant assist in this problem also

I just recently opened a live trading account with Paxforex... I must say it was a very nice surprise as to how fast my deposit and withdrawal went through...

I used Paypal and my deposit went through in under one hour... before I even traded one lot I turned around and withdrew a small amount of money to test things out on that end as well... no problems again my money went back to my Paypal account in under one hour...

For myself this is the smoothest I have found for any broker I have tried. I only have a micro account with Paxforex and have already made a few bucks with them... I will probably go to a standard account with them soon but so far I have no broblems with this broker.
