Fxtm truly stands out

Service use: Live Length of use: over 1 Year
I have been using Fxtm of and on since 2016 . I have not had a single issue since then. In the past ,the withdrawal may not come that day but the next day and its included that the trading cabinet that local withdrawal is 24 hours,so that is not an issue ,,but now the withdrawal is instant!

Its truly an ECN broker. Many do complain often about the spread.
The secret is if you wish to target 50 pips,make it 40 pips, so the spread issue is dealt with that way! And yes ECN brokers do take commission cos they are giving you a direct access to world markets. I will rather have a good broker that I know how to handle their spread issue and commission than work with a fraudulent broker.
So yes , Fxtm is one of the best. I also have other brokers I work with, but Fxtm is more reliable. I trust Fxtm. They are among the top 5 for me.

My experience was excellent. Withdrawals and deposits are done in less than a minute
Excellent customer service, quick response
The ECN account is excellent and the spread is almost negligible
Simple, easy to use, uncomplicated website
I had a good experience with it and I expect that I will continue with this forever, especially the feature of copying deals is one of the most beautiful features

This people are gang of criminals. My only word for traders is: STAY AWAY!
This people are thieves and they're not hiding that fact. They manipulate your trades to make sure you lose, they charge you for any single day you did not trade, you can NEVER withdraw money from fxtm platform.

Hello Changer. We are NOT THIEVES. Please do not spread false information by sharing incorrect facts:

1) We DO NOT manipulate or interfere with our client's trades,
2) We DO NOT charge a daily fee for no trading - we charge the 'Inactive Maintenance Fee' if "client does not have any trading activity on all Clients Trading Accounts for a period equal to 6 (Six) consecutive calendar months or more starting from last Clients trading activity, FXTM will charge the Client an amount of 5 EUR/USD/GBP or NGN equivalent per account depending on Clients Trading Account currency on a monthly basis,"
3) Our withdrawal system is working perfectly fine and on a daily basis, withdrawals are being processed and sent for our 4 million+ clients.

Your comment is totally unjustified and if you are facing a 'real' issue, please send an email to social@fxtm.com and include your FXTM ID so we can investigate your case and provide a public response right here. We are awaiting your email.

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

Please be informed that spread offered on our accounts is floating and depends on the trading account type, as well as on the market conditions. Prices of different instruments are quoted from various liquidity providers. Different brokers will have different trading conditions and competitiveness. FXTM quotes price directly from liquidity providers with the most competitive prices, hence it is floating spread. On our Advantage and Advantage Plus accounts, orders are executed at the current market quotes, each separately taken position is automatically brought to the external market. There can be no conflict of interest between the Company and the Client since the Client's financial result does not in any way affect the Company's profit.

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).
