ScopeMarkets Review - Is it scam or safe?

ScopeMarkets Review - is scopemarkets.com scam or good forex broker?

RATING: 2.3 / 3 REVIEWS ForexBrokerz ScopeMarkets

Trading Accounts & Conditions

 

Account type   Minimum deposit  Minimum trade size Maximum leverage Spreads & Commission
Fixed spreads $500 0.01 1:500 1.0 pips, fixed
Variable spreads $500 0.01 1:500 From 0.5 pips
Raw spreads $500 0.01 1:500 From 0 pips + $7 /lot (roundtrip)

 

Like most forex brokers, ScopeMarkets offers several basic account types. All of them are accessible with an initial investment of $500 and provide leverage up to 1:500 and the option to trade in micro lots – a good risk management strategy. Otherwise, traders can choose between fixed or variable spreads, commission-free trading or tighter spreads with commission fees and two trading platforms.

 

In addition, ScopeMarkets provides account management (PAMM) services.

 

Unfortunately, we could not test this brokers’ services, because it does not offer demo accounts (although it claims it does). ScopeMarkets’ spreads seem attractively low – both fixed and variable ones. Besides, high-volume Raw Spread account holders are offered reduced commission fees (those trading more than 50 Million monthly). However, we find the initial deposit of $500 required a bit high for an offshore brokerage. By comparison, major brokerage IG has set no minimum initial investment amount, so trader can start trading with just $1 and use typical spread of 0.8 pips on EUR/USD.

 

Keep in mind that Scope Markets does not accept as clients residents of USA, Syria, Afghanistan, Cote d'Ivoire, Cuba, Iran, Libya, Myanmar, North Korea, Sudan, Puerto Rico, and Ecuador.

Regulation

ScopeMarkets offers online trading in over 30 currency pairs, CFDs on precious metals, shares, energies and indices. The company behind the brand, Scope Markets Ltd., is licensed by the Capital Markets Authority in Kenya, as well as by the Belize International Financial Services Commission (IFSC).

 

Unlike UK’s FCA and other financial watchdogs, IFSC has liberal control over forex brokers. Belize is a famous offshore destination for financial service providers, where the regulation and licensing requirements are quite loose. The initial minimum capital requirement for financial and commodity-based derivatives brokers is $500,000 and the annual license fee from amounts to $25,000. In addition, IFSC requires licensed companies to keep client funds in segregated accounts

 

Although regulation in Belize is better than the one in the St. Vincent and the Grenadines for example, investing in companies registered there is still risky, as IFSC places little emphasis on supervision.

ScopeMarkets offers its services on the most popular forex trading platform - MetaTrader 4 (MT4), as well as Scope GT platform.

 

The MT4 is a professional, fully-featured trading terminal provides ease of use, fast order execution, a variety of technical analysis indicators, advanced charting tools and the ability to develop and use Expert Advisors (EA) for automatization of trades.

Scope Markets Reply: Muy mala opción ScopeMarkets

Hello Carlos,

We are sorry to hear about your bad experience, however kindly note that having a managed account was your sole decision and this doesn't mean that Scope Markets is a wrong option for trading.

Did you try to trade on your own or try to get another Account Manager?

We invite you to contact our Customer Support Team at any time, in order to be assisted at the best possible way.

Again, thank you for taking the time to review our Company.

Best Regards,

Muy mala opción ScopeMarkets

Tuve la desgracia de confiar en uno de sus asesores, quien dijo llamarse CARLOS GARCÍA, mismo que me convenció para invertir con ellos 500 USD, en una cuenta gestionada.

Inicié en enero de 2019, al principio el supuesto señor Carlos García llamaba continuamente, pero ya en marzo estaba muy ocupado para contestar mis llamadas o mensajes, en ese momento las pérdidas y iban en 250 USD.

Para finales de junio de 2019, sólo quedaban 50 USD en mi cuenta, y el día 3 de junio abrieron más de 100 operaciones perdedoras por centavos para dejar la cuenta en ceros, aparentemente.

Obvia decir que el señor Carlos García no contesta el teléfono y que me tiene bloqueado en el Whatsapp.

Cabe aclarar que NO es la primera cuenta que abro, actualmente tengo otras dos activas. Pero en mi experiencia, hay uno o varios grupos de estafadores que cambian de nombre continuamente, como "Markets Brokers", "Scope Markets", "Only Trades", "FG Markets"y otros muchos por el estilo.

Gracias a estas supuestas empresas he aprendido de la forma difícil y costosa varias cosas, como son: 1) No confiar en empresas chafas sin registro ni reguladas, 2) Cuando me hablan de ganancias fáciles y sin esfuerzo, seguro me quieren robar, 3) Escuchar consejos y leer mensajes en los foros.

ScopeMarkets no es mi peor experiencia, pude hacer un retiro de prueba, eso es más de lo que puedes hacer con otros brokers.

Definitivamente mientras más lejos de ellos mejor.

Very bad option ScopeMarkets
I had the misfortune of trusting one of his advisors, who said he was called CARLOS GARCÍA, who convinced me to invest with them 500 USD, in a managed account.

I started in January 2019, at the beginning the supposed Mr. Carlos García called continuously, but already in March he was too busy to answer my calls or messages, at that time the losses were at 250 USD.

By the end of June 2019, there was only $ 50 left in my account, and on June 3 they opened more than 100 losing trades for cents to apparently leave the account in zeros.

Obvious to say that Mr. Carlos García does not answer the phone and that he has blocked me on Whatsapp.

It should be noted that it is NOT the first account I open, I currently have two others active. But in my experience, there are one or several groups of scammers who change their name continuously, such as "Markets Brokers", "Scope Markets", "Only Trades", "FG Markets" and many others like that.

Thanks to these supposed companies I have learned in a difficult and costly way several things, such as: 1) Do not trust in unregulated or unregulated companies, 2) When they talk to me about easy and effortless profits, they want to steal me, 3) Listen to tips and read messages in the forums.

ScopeMarkets is not my worst experience, I was able to do a trial withdrawal, that's more than you can do with other brokers.

Definitely the farther away from them the better.

My assigned portfolio manager does not respond to my email.
I need someone to call me so that we can sort out my account standing.

Scope Markets Reply: Dont Trade With Scope Markets

Dear Mr Batshon,

We are sorry that you are not satisfied with our services.

Kindly note that slippage is likely to occur during periods of high volatility. As per the definition of stop order, it is triggered when market touches the price and stop order turns to market order. On stop orders, slippage is possible, especially during data times. When we checked your trade, during data time, USDCAD jumped and filled with slippage, at the same second market turned back and your position stopped out. During data times, such moves are considered as market conditions.

We do not guarantee the execution of your Pending Orders at the price specified during Slippage. However, we confirm that your Order will be executed at the next best available market price from the price you have specified under your pending Order.

For further assistance, please contact our Support Team at customersevice@scopemarkets.com

Best Regards,
Scope Markets team

Dont Trade With Scope Markets

i have trading with scope markets for over a year now
and changing between strategies
and i finally started making money scalping the news
with over 6 months of success and no slippage at all
the company decides to give me some action with slippage
(why the sudden slippage )
they trigger my buy stop at a price the market did not reach nor the candle or any other server
and my accounts went to -2900 $
when i email them ( it takes them 24 hours to reply to my email )
they ( to shut me up) say that out of there goodwill
will remove some of my slippage ( so that my account becomes -18$ only )
after going back and forth with the emails
they said i was gaining an unfair advantage scalping the news
even thou scalping is allowed
but they realized that they are losing money and they decide to slip the system to stop me from trading
it would have been much nicer of them to email me telling me to stop scalping ( after one year of being a loyal customer)
they don't want you to profit , and they lie to you in the emails
and they are pure scam

my order was filled @1.35048
even thou the market didnt reach that price
and my buy stop was put at 1.3460

ScopeMarkets Estafa

Esta empresa es una farsa prometo te tratan bien y después te hacen perder tu capital, si te invitan a sus oficinas y te hacen firmar un contrato ya los investigue y de nada sirve firmar si ellos de la noche a la mañana pueden desaparecer, yo fui a sus oficinas y la persona que según me iba asesorar se vestía muy mal, le hice preguntas del mercado y no sabía que contestarme jajajaja pobres tontos ni si quiera ser profesionales. Les recomiendo que no pongan su dinero en personas cómo estás qué lo terminarán perdiendo

Translated by Google:

This company is a farce I promise I'll treat you well and then make you lose your capital, if they invite you to their offices and they make you sign a contract and investigate them and it's useless to sign if they can disappear overnight, I went to his offices and the person who, according to my advice, was dressing very badly, I asked him questions about the market and he did not know how to answer me hahahaha poor fools or even to be professionals. I recommend that you do not put your money in people how are you what they will end up losing

Respuesta Scope Markets

Hola que tal Carlos podrias ser mas especifico en tu caso, ya que una persona que pierde 10K USD no lo cuenta tan a la ligera como tu, pero no te preocupes proporcionanos tu numero de Plataforma, ID de POA y numero de Contrato en dado caso que seas cliente real de scopemarkets sabes cuales son estos datos que te solicito y de todas formas revisando en nuestra cartera de clientes no contamos con ningún cliente de nombre Carlos Manuel, pero bueno esperemos que puedas comprobar que realmente eres cliente operativo de todas formas me pongo a tu disposición y a la de cualquier persona que quiera saber nuestra ubicación.

Translated by Google:

Hello, how could Carlos be more specific in your case, since a person who loses 10K USD does not count it as lightly as you, but do not worry, provide your Platform number, POA ID and Contract number in case if you are a real client of scopemarkets, you know what these data are that I request and in any case, checking our client portfolio we do not have any client named Carlos Manuel, but we hope you can verify that you are really an operative client anyway. at your disposal and that of any person who wants to know our location.

Scopemarkets.com withdrawal

Hola.. sin saber del tema inverti con la empresa scopemarkets.com ya que me platicaron como funcionaba confie en ellos inverti 10,000 dolares perodesde que meti mi dinero no vi ganacias eso me dio desconfinza y ahora que quiero retirar mi dinero solo me dan largas es un error caro el haberlo hecho sin antes investigarlos.

Translated by Google:

Hello ... without knowing about the topic inverti with the company scopemarkets.com since they told me how it works I trusted them I invested 10,000 dollars but since I put my money I did not see any gains that gave me a lack of confidence and now that I want to withdraw my money they only give me long is an expensive mistake to have done without first investigating them.
