Nostrobank offers forex trading through three account types. Spreads at this brokers are fixed. There have been several complaints against the company in popular forums.


The Company. Security of Funds


Company Country Regulation
Keyds Lydya Ltd Marshal Islands N/A


Nostrobank is owned and operated by KEYDS SCOTLAND LP, a subsidiary of Keyds Lydya Ltd. which is registered in Marshall Islands. The company does not stand under any specific financial regulation, which is a concern for us. The company also owns, a review of which you may find here. They are also affiliated, with MultiplyMarket, but the relations aren't as clear.


You may already know this, but financial regulatory agencies are state entities which impose certain restrictions on companies in the sector. Different regulators apply different principles and practices. For instance, Australia’s ASIC requires brokers to have capital holdings of at least AUD 1 million, as a sign of good will. Furthermore, client’s funds must be kept in “segregated accounts”, which implies the company can not use them freely.


There were a few complaints against Nostrobank on a popular forum, from users who claim they can’t withdraw their funds. This combined with the lack of regulation leads us to believe the company may be a scam.


Trading Conditions


Minimum Initial Deposit

Nostrobank has set the minimum initial deposit requirement at $500. This is a relatively high level, compared to what most brokers nowadays. For instance, IG does not even have a minimum requirement. Keep in mind this should not be a major factor for you, as trading successfully requires more capital and a solid risk management plan.


Average spreads & Commissions

Spreads at Nostrobank are fixed, starting at 3 pips for EUR/USD (for the mini account). This is higher than other similar offerings, as most fixed spread brokers nowadays provide better conditions. For instance, HYMC offers 2 pips for this pair for the Mini accounts and even slightly tighter spreads for the other account types. 



Nostrobank has set a maximum leverage of 1:200, which is in line with what you would expect nowadays. Some forex brokers even offer higher levels, such as 1:500


Trading with higher leverage does not necessarily mean you are getting better conditions. High leverage allows you to take higher risks, which can lead to serious losses. Be sure to fully understand the risks involved with margin trading, before participating in it.


Trading Platforms


Nostrobank offers the popular MetaTrader 4 (MT4) platform as well as their own web-based solution. MT4 is popular with many brokers and there is a reason for that. The platform is easy to use, has a great charting package and provides the world’s most famous automated trading environment – you can check out our reviews of Expert Advisors here.


We couldn’t get the web-based platform running for the purposes of this review. That being said, this may be a temporary issue.

Methods of Payment


Nostrobank offers only Bank Transfer and Credit Card as its deposit methods. Funds can be withdrawn only via Bank Transfer. Keep in mind these operations can take up to several business days.




Nostrobank is a forex broker, owned by a company registered in the Marshal Islands. The company is not regulated. There are several complaints against the company on popular forums, from people who can’t withdraw their funds. Even if they were a legitimate broker (which doesn’t appear likely), their trading conditions are far from ideal. Here are the advantages and disadvantages with regards to this broker:

Nostrobank-Betacrypto Scam

I invested with Nostrobank 2017. Too much to disclose as it would be too embarrassing. Brokers Name at the time was James Gordon and another broker later on was named as Arnold Fox

Set me up with an account and a trading platform, which looks quite genuine. My savings account was looking good and every time I logged into my account there was profit.

After a few months James Gordon introduced me to Arnold Fox, whom took over the trading. This is where the account started to go pair shaped. I started asking for withdrawals but was ignored and started to demand more money. This went on for a considerable time until they said that they had to move my account in to anther company called because Nostrobank had collapsed. I asked to get my money back and cancel trading but they tol be that they would transfer the money to Betacrypto.

I got a phone call from a "Taylor Li" from Nostrobank asking me if he would trade my money with him. I said I did not want too and that I just wanted to get my money back. I was told by Taylor Li that I could get my money if I wired 10k to him by the end of the week or the money would be lost. I did not have 10k at the time and sure enough the money and company had disappeared off the face of the earth.

I then got a call from Arnold Fox saying that my money was safe and that they would use their lawyers to move the money from Nostrobank account to the Betacrypto account. Sure enough the account showed all the deposits etc.After a while they were in touch asking for more money to increase the investment. I told them that there was no more money and that I had invested every thing I had then, on several times, I started asking them for a withdrawal. This went on until 26.12.18 when I noticed that the account had been closed and that there had been a substantial amount of money withdrawn. Never heard from them again

I am very upset with your bank as all emails get sent back undelivered you can not withdraw from your bank as you have to confirm your withdrawal as the email to confirm on does not exist the phone numbers do not exist so how can anyone withdraw or even close a account if you can not get intouch with any body so ther for Ithink it looks like a leagl root yours Alan

Alan Lloyd 05/10/2018


I have just decided to close my account with your bank could you please arrange it for me as your withdrawal system does not work they send a ticket that you have to verify which you can not do as there email and phone numbers do not exist so if you ask them to trancefare it back into the account where they took it from they have all the details if they need any more they can ring me thank you

Alan Lloyd 05/03/2018

Pay them a visit at home

I have another name for your list - Peter Young. All English names with European accents. I suggest an older, more subtle approach.

Perhaps we should pool some money - a faction of what they have stolen - and 'employ' someone to find out their real names and addresses, family members details, etc, and pay them a visit at home and see if they can be 'persuaded' to change their withdrawal policy.

What do you think? Please contact me.

nostrobank account disabled

as soon as I registered a withdrawal, my account was disabled.

my password does not work.

no way to contact them, you can only send an email , but they do not answer.

even the guy on skype is now missing.

vic 02/26/2018

They are all called Steven Gold and Olivia Green

We together can make a difference.If you can not find a trusted broker quit this bussiness before it is too late , never mind of what you have lost until now.2000 signatures obligates a prosecutor to investigate them. Email me so we can arrange something all together :

ps:All their names are made up names in my opinion.

Steven Tilley 02/20/2018

Do not! deposit anything, to Nostrobank

I receive phone calls from Nostrobank employees, they lie about everything and encourage me to deposit more, well don't do it!!!

They stole US$5000 from me, and will tell you they can get your money back by depositing more. Its so illegal they will end up in Jail soon.

Steven Tilley 02/20/2018

Nostrobank Brokers stea money from customers

I have funds with Nostrobank (17.500( and after a successful trade (42.000) but those funds were manipulated by the Brokers and their assistants.
I asked to have those funds returned but I wasn't lucky enough to get them. I have proofs (several email contacts), my banks tried to retrieve the deposits without success.
This system must be illegal and punishable by UK laws.
Yhe 'Brokers' I worked with were Steven Gold, Ruby Julien, Olivia Green and Zack (accountant)/
I received an email (October 23, 2017) from Mrs. Linda King. She knew about my complaint and those involved and told me (via email) that she needed a little time to investigate the issues. When I tried to conyacy her again the email address was not good anymore. So, basicaly was noway to contact anybody at Nostrabank (the 'brokers' dissapear sometime ago).
I am a stuborn man and I promise that I will follow this situation until I get these crooks to jail. It appears that they are organized (like a Mafia)

Victor Goliac 12/10/2017

Another scam

Do not deposit money with these crooks. You will never see it again.

Thieves at Nostrobank

I start with Nostrobank trading on June 2017. First contact was Olivia Green who assured me that Nostrobank is the best trader on the market. Than I continue with Ruby Julien ans than with Steven Gold. All were set up to steal customers money. As soon as my account became 42000 all vanished and were no responses to my emails or phone calls. THEY ARE ORDIBARY THIEVES AND ARE DISTROING THE COMPANY THEY WORK FOR NOSTROBANK AND THE KEYDS SCOTLAND LP.

VLG 10/16/2017

Victor Goliac 10/09/2017

Nostrobank: Tried to get me to set up a new account by saying they could get back money I'd lost from 10 Markets

They called me up 1 month after I'd been scammed out of £25500 from saying they could get most of the money back using their legal department for a percentage only if I opened a new account with them. They put me on to an account manager who was very convincing until I told him it was the same old spileal as 10Markets, who basically ripped me off by getting me to over trade with my account when the promise was never to invest more than 10% of your account! look what happened to me! Don't be fooled by these seemingly nice people and lose out!
