Not all Forex brokers are the same, get your skis ready...


Obstacle course:

huge deal, avoid entirely
serious deal, avoid
warning sign, proceed with caution
bad business practice, keep in mind

LEGAL DOCUMENTS & REGISTRATION


No Client Agreement

No Client Agreement on the website, and no Client Agreement at any stage of account opening (before, during or after).
It won't be wise to begin with account registration without knowing what conditions you're signing up to

The Broker is not regulated

Non-regulated Forex brokers are able to offer more attractive trading conditions, due to no regulatory oversight. And since Forex Market has no centralized regulation as well, by entrusting their funds to non-regulated Forex brokers traders have zero protection against any business misconduct by such brokers

Registered but not regulated

The broker is legally registered, but not regulated (either due to absence of Forex regulation in its jurisdiction, or by own choice). Offshore companies are known to fall under this category

Inadequate Client Agreement

An "oversimplified" inadequate Client Agreement, missing key details about execution policies, client funds management, conflict of interest etc, and without references to other legal documents... puts under question broker's transparency

Registration/ regulation undisclosed

Broker's website does not contain any details (or documents) about company registration and/or regulation. Every legitimate business is registered at its domestic jurisdiction. For a Forex broker in particular, omitting details about registration & regulation entirely is a bad practice


🏆 FINISH LINE: Would you trust your money to a Bank that misses out on the points above?



CLIENT SUPPORT


Insufficient contact information

No meaningful contacts provided:

  • no physical address
  • no phone
  • no email
  • no live chat (optional)

Warning sign: only one contact option is insufficient for a business that handles clients' funds

No reply

No one replies to client support requests for over 3 business days.
Do they want your business?

Incompetent support

Client support seems completely incompetent about the topics/questions you ask.
Are they professional?

Ineffective support

Client support ignores your questions, won't answer directly or provides unrelated answers.
Are they hiding details?

Pushy support

Client support pushes for account opening & collecting your personal details from the very start.
Are they unable to earn your business without aggressive strategies?


🏆 FINISH LINE: If you can't get support before becoming a client, how would you deal with it once a client?



BROKER REPUTATION & REVIEWS


Zero reviews about Broker

There are no reviews about the Broker anywhere on the web - serious deal.
There could be 3 main reasons:

  • The broker is very new - exercise caution
  • The broker gets zero attention from traders & fewer clients - exercise caution
  • The broker forces webmasters to remove reviews - exercise extra caution

All 5 star reviews

Warning sign: there are some reviews, but all of them are 5 star reviews (likely not from real traders, rather affiliate reviews)

A lot of negative feedback

There is an overwhelming amount of negative feedback about the Broker on several (!) resources.
If all facts point to "-", you have to be a huge optimist to see "+"

Broker labeled as fraud

Several (!) websites labeled the company as "fraud" - huge deal.
Note: if only one website placed on a "fraud" label, do further research, but exercise caution nonetheless

Broker won't respond to reviews

The broker does not respond to reviews in attempt to clarify traders' claims (especially negative ones) - missed opportunity for a broker to promote own image & build traders' confidence.
Note: don't expect your broker reply to reviews on every website, pay most attention to largest websites.


🏆 FINISH LINE: If a business doesn't earn positive reviews, will your experience be positive?
