Fraudulent closing of trade high above stoploss

Service use: Live

Length of use: over 1 Year

Ive been with ForexTime for a long time, and all that time no progress. As a Nigerian i will advice all Nigerian never to use this broker as they will regret it and loose all their money. They close your trades high above your stop loss mark and then offer stupid excuses when you complain. Their spread is never reliable as they can use it against you when you least expect it. No matter how hard you complain and contact them you will never get any justice. STAY AWAY FROM THEM. IF you are in profit take it and run. only pain and regret will accompany you when you use this broker. I even had to write Cyprus securities and exchange commission to complain about their unethical practices. Waiting to see how this will end as i will have all my trades ever done on thier platform investiagted

Worst Services

Service use: Live

Length of use: 0-3 Months

Fxtm is the worst of all the brokers I have come across. It's not even one month but a lot of false promises and issues.

1) I couldn't use the FxTm mobile app with a live account. Demo works fine, I don't know why? Contacted customer care chat 15 days ago. Instead of understanding what the problem is, they keep on saying: restart the phone, uninstall and reinstall the app, enter the login id and password correctly, send the screenshots. Seriously? Don't you know that without a correct id and password I can't even login to the app. Finally after 1 hour of chat and doing useless things, chat person said that they are contacting the relevant department (I don't know what that department is) and they will get back to me. But they never show up. So, I started a chat again after a couple of days.. you know what? Same thing... restart the phone, uninstall and reinstall the app... blablablaaa. Again the same answer, our relevant department will get back to you.

2) Finally I have written an email and the reply was again... we will get back to you. It's more than 15 days now.

3) They started charging me swap-free everyday for open positions. I didn't know my account was a swap-free. So, I logged in to the portal and tried to disable the option. It will say "Success", but still show that option in Green. I tried more than 100 times.

I again contacted customer care chat and informed about this. They started like this:- Go to you portal, select the account, click on the swap-free bla bla blaa. Seriously? I was saying that I have already tried that. And they asked me to send the screen shots, which is their template response. I sent and the same template reply again.. our relevant department will get back to you.

And they keep charging my account with some $10 everyday per lot, for their issues.

4) Again I have written an email.. stating the issue that I am unable to disable the swap-free option, I have also asked them the status on the issue with mobile app. Asked them for a refund of charged too that were applied because of this issue.

I was shocked to see the reply. They bluntly said that they don't refund and keep on charging even after I asked 100 times to disable the swap-free. Finally they said they have sent this to the 'relevant' department and they will disable the option. BUT still it is not disabled. And they will keep on charging the fee and I have to pay?????

In that reply, regarding the mobile app, their answer was: Please let us know what's the issue with mobile app???????? WOW! Again started from the beginning.

I am vexed seriously and I am going to close my account with FxTm after withdrawing everything left in the account. I thought of adding more funds if I am satisfied with the services. But now a big NO.

They are here to loot your accounts, that's all. I will go back to my old broker. They are far better!

Trade fraud, closing trade without reason

Service use: Live

First I place a buy trade order but they rather sold it. Secondly the four hour candle traded on did not appear or was not active on the chart. Thirdly there was manipulation on price, other brokers open with gap prior to news release yesterday but fxtm did not. Lastly fxtm stoped me out of trade without my concernt and with my active margin. Therefore I want them charge to return back my money soonest. I have proves both videos and photo images which are readily available for your further reference.

Hello Mohammed Al Zarii! Please be informed that in order to withdraw your funds, your account needs to be totally verified. This procedure is needed to verify that you, our Client are the one who is withdrawing the funds, not a third party. Please be informed that to fully verify your MyFXTM account, all Clients are asked to provide us with 2 documents: 1) an identity document (ID slip, passport, driving license); and 2) a proof of residence document showing your current residential address. In order to process your withdrawal, FXTM requires a color copy of both the front and back side of your card. For security purposes we recommend that you cover all digits except the last 4 on the front side of the card, also cover the last 3 digits on the back side of your card (we do not require the CVV code). All of these requirements are stated on our website. If you have any further queries, please contact our Customer support team via Live chat. Our team will be happy to answer any questions you might have!

Stay way from FXTM Invest program!!

Service use: Live

Length of use: 0-3 Months

I was attracted by their copy trading AKA FXTM Invest program. I invested $500 and after a month I was quite happy. Then, the Payout Date happened, my balance was 10% up from my initial deposit, so I was expecting that some $10 deduced from my balance (having plenty of free funds from my equity), instead of that, FXTM "paused" my account, meaning they closed all open positions, forcing me to take the entire drawdown (-5%), and a minute later, they open they back at a market price (making me pay commissions back again). Seriously FXTM, who implemented such a dumb algorithm? Shame on you FXTM, scamming investors with those cheap tricks.

for those out there who still interested in the invest program, let me summarize the negative points that I found, compared with other platforms out there:

1) You are forced to copy open trades each time you deposit funds. Other platforms allow you to choose but not FXTM. Copying open trades makes sense in case of long-term portfolios, but for the forex market, that simply doesn't work, and most certainly, it will mean taking losses.

2) It is no "social" at all. There is no way to contact your strategy manager, all they have is a "News" blog, but it is a one-way channel and most managers don't publish anything at all.

3) Pausing your account means closing open positions. In other platforms pausing the copy means that future positions open by the manager will no longer be mirrored in your account while waiting for the current ones to be closed at the proper time by the manager. Essentially, allowing a smooth way out. But in FXTM for you to stop copying you are forced to close the ongoing positions.

4) You will be re-charged commissions of your entire portfolio each time you add or withdraw funds as FXTM will close all positions and open them back again at a market price.

On the positive side, profit shares are charged only once a month based on the over all equity, even taking into account losses from previous months. I hope you find this helpful.

Although not the best, it is a good broker.

Service use: Live

Length of use: 6-12 Months

I have used this broker for over 6 months with my MT4ECN account.

Advantages I think.
0. Above all, when using an ECN account, the spread is very tight and the commission is low.
1. Deposits are made almost in real time, and withdrawals are rarely delayed.
2. There was no limit to withdrawal of bonuses obtained through promotions.
3. The response from the support team is quick.

Disadvantages I think.
1. There is a fee when withdrawing money using a credit card (there are many brokers that do not have a fee).
2. There are limited ways to withdraw the proceeds. (For example, withdrawal through bitcoin is only possible for the amount deposited).

I am using another broker because the deposit and withdrawal method I want has not been added, but if that part is resolved, I will use it again.

I was defrauded by fxtm by allowing my investment account to drawdown below my stipulated protective loss of 75% without any explanation behind it.
Also my account was wrongly paused.
