EVForex offers just one type of live trading account, which we called “Live” for convenience. There is also a money management account (MAM) and a free demo account with virtual $50 000, valid for 30 days.
The broker offers trading in forex and CFDs on commodities and indices, but we could not find any further details on the portfolio, as the company seems to be rather new.
|Electronic and Voice Foreign Exchange Ltd.||UK||FCA|
EVForex is a brand of the company Electronic and Voice Foreign Exchange Ltd., which holds a license from UK's Financial Conduct Authority. The parent company provides mostly institutional services, but, judging by the entry in FCA's Financial Services Register, it is branching out to the retail forex market as well.
The FCA is one of the most robust supervisors and its license is rather coveted. The watchdog has a long and strict list of requirements, including capital and membership in the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) which covers client funds up to £50,000 in case the broker goes bankrupt.
Minimum initial deposit
EVForex says it does not require a deposit to apply for a live trading account, but the sum required to actually start trading is $500. This is a relatively large sum, considering other FCA-regulated brokers like IG require just $1. FxPro, however, requires $100.
Spreads and commissions
EVForex offers pretty tight spreads and does not charge commission, which sounds very attractive for smaller clients.
EVForex offers MetaTrader 4 (MT4) (desktop, web and mobile versions), which is the most popular trading platform among forex brokers and traders alike. It is a multiasset platform that has been around for over 10 years.
MT4 is stable and reliable, has many functions, offers API connectivity, supports PAMM and MAMM functionality and has a wide selection of technical analysis and charting tools. It is also user-friendly and supports Expert Advisors and automated trading. The broker also allows scalping and high-frequency trading.
We could not find clear and concise information about the ways clients can make deposits in their trading accounts, besides a vague mention of a bank transfer. It seems EVForex does not accept payments through online platforms like PayPal or Skrill, for example.
EVForex does not stand out among the FCA-regulated brokers with very attractive trading conditions. Its initial deposit is high and the leverage is low. Probably the only good thing about them is the fairly tight spread.
