Nice!

Iv been trading with them for 6 months now. So far I have no problem with them. And the customer service is excellent!.

hana 2018-07-27

We spend a lot of time chatting to the customer support reps of different brokers – and we have pretty much seen it all. While generally helpful, online support guys (and gals) are usually replying slowly, leaving us wondering if they are chatting to at least 17 people at the same time. This is not the case with FX Choice – whenever we talk to their people, we get answers right away, on the spot, which is pretty awesome. 

 
In terms of trading, FX Choice offers excellent conditions: both the standard and ECN account types (named Classic and Pro respectively) come with tight variable spreads – the typical spread on EUR/USD for example is 0.5 pips – however these may widen significantly depending on market conditions. If you sign up for an ECN account, you would also need to factor in the commission of $3.5 per side per lot. The execution is NDD and super fast, so you won't have to worry about slippage – although the broker practices positive price correction.
 
If you employ hedging in your trading strategy, you will be pleased to know that FX Choice doesn't require an additional margin for hedged positions.  
 
The minimum deposit you need to make in order to open an account is $100 – for both the Standard and Pro account types, which is rare – most brokers ask for much higher initial investments for ECN accounts.  
 
The platform you can trade with is Metatrader 4 (MT4) with all its goodness, such as Expert Advisors for example. Traders with equity of $3,000 or more qualify for free VPS. 
 
There are two things that we are not crazy about with FX Choice: its educational resources and its regulation. The section dedicated to new traders learning forex is so limited that it's practically useless so if you are a beginner, you may want to search for tips and tricks elsewhere. 
 
As far as regulation is concerned, well – there is none. The broker is registered in Belize, where there is quite the liberal view on overseeing broker operations. The silver lining is that customer money is kept in segregated accounts. 
 
Applications from U.S. traders are not accepted.

ESMA renews restrictions on CFD trading, implies closer monitoring

Feb 01 2019 16:25:36, Jonathan Smith in Market

  The European Securities Markets Authority (ESMA) announced on Thursday it is renewing the restrictions on CFDs trading for another three months as of February 1, 2019. The pan-European regulator also implied that it will monitor closely forex brokerages, as it has identified certain malpractices.   ESMA’s decision does not come as a surprise, as the pan-European regulator is extending these measures for a third time. The reason for this is that it is only able to impose such restrictions on CFD trades on a temporary basis. Read more

Major broker IG launched its US website

Jan 31 2019 13:15:37, Jonathan Smith in Brokers

  Global brokerage IG launched its website intended for US retail clients (www.ig.com/us). Residents of the US (with the exception of those in Arizona or Ohio) can now register on the broker’s website in less than 5 minutes and start trading.     What forex giant IG offers its retail US clients is more than attractive: trading on the leading MeataTrader4 platform with spreads as low as 0.8 pips on EUR/USD and leverage up to 1:50 – the maximum allowed in the country.   After most brokers shut down their US operations and moved their business elsewhere several years ago, the US forex market seems to experience some sort of revival lately.
