    very good, excellent service, tight spreads, good support, withdrawals with in 24 hours, many added options for better trading. highly recommended

  • TheAlchem

    good broker smooth process, pretty professional really. well done. almost a year now and about to make my 3rd pure profit withdrawal.

  • Huỳnh Hoàng Duy

    This broker is very good for scalper like me with its zero spread account that rare brokers providing. The spread is tight and I could say raw price, there is commission along with but we can manage it and overall it’s cheaper than spread because hitting TP easier.

  • Dave Moreno

    good broker, Im pretty satisfied by my trading so far, withdrawals are processed in time, I made 3 so far, was able to get my ROI in 4 months, and now trading with pure profit

  • Duy Huynh

    This broker is very good and the customer supports very helpful.

  • Peter Parker

    I can safely recommend this broker to my near and dears as hotforex spreads are quite convenient with quick orders executions and payment withdrawals are never held.

  • Khusan

    Great broker best what I could find so far. If you need low spreads and fast execution Hotforex its the place where you certainly can find what you need.

  • PadishEz

    Seems Hotforex has fastest LP around. Best part of orders are executed within 0.5 second, sometimes I get slower execution, but it may be result of high-volatility news release times. Platform doesn’t carry any outstanding or notable features, but spreads are really better than other brokers have. There are almost 200 assets to trade but I use only some XXX/USD pairs and Gold. I would like to try their Optiontrade affiliate but still can’t get a clue of prediction market..

  • Xavi

    I have been trading a standard account at hotforex for almost 10 months and I am very happy with their trading service. Customer support has been always quick. I just made my 4th withdrawal via MB and it has been done in less than 24 hours! I would keep trading with it for several months and I may open another account to trade gold.

  • Tony

    Trading with this broker for the past 5 months live, I have not encountered any problems, I tend to keep it simple and stick to the basics, make a decent number of pips monthly and withdraw if I need the money, that’s about it. The thing I like about hotforex is consistency, execution is as stable as it gets and really fast, withdrawals are easy and fast, no requotes and friendly support. I highly recommend this broker and to be honest I think they are really underrated.

  • Nassim

    Hotforex was recommended to me by a good friend in Europe last year, when he understood that I had experienced with some unstable server problem with my previous broker.
    I’m glad that I’d found a professional company, and the customer service is very quick and problem solving. Every time I send a questions I can get the response very soon.
    I’m trading often, and the platform is stable for me. I’d been with them for about one year and had withdrawn money twice. the withdrawls took me normally within 12 hours in working days.

  • Krish

    This is hotforex from my point of view, been trading with them for half a year or so, some problems I have encountered are disconnections, they are not that often but it can be a bugger, I hope they add more servers. Execution and slippage are manageable, withdrawals are manual so it can take up to 24 hours. Things that I like about hotforex are tight spreads, which is really good for scalping, multi platforms can really be handy especially during travels or having a computer busted. I can recommend this broker and I’m pretty happy with what Im getting from them, makes earning money a lot easier. I’ve tried a couple of brokers before hotforex and by far this brokers is much better.

  • William

    Honestly speaking, the only time that I lost a big amount of money with this broker was due to my own silly mistake, aside from that everything is almost perfect, no worries what so ever, and withdrawing money was never this fast before, it only takes a couple of hours for me to see my earning in my moneybooker account, I feel at home with this broker. Pls don’t get me wrong, because what works for me might not work for you, but despite all the good comments about hotforex I still think this broker is underrated until you try them out first hand. Happy trading everyone!

  • Bobby

    I have been trading with HotForex from the beginning of 2011 and for almost 10 months I have found them to be a very good brokerage company. Their spreads are very competitive and execution time is good. There are some glitches here and there as everywhere else, but the support guys are trained well and handle everything very fast. I have moved my accounts from another forex company to HotForex and I can safely suggest them as a good trading partner.

  • David

    I am a professional trader for 7 years now and many years as an account manager and fund manager. I was working for a bank as a money manager, also.

    I have 28 live clients trading with Hot forex and I can tell straight up that Hot forex is most probably the best broker out there.

    The spread is the lowest I ever saw. The execution is extremely fast. The service is unbelievable good.

    Example: This week there was a problem with the connection and some clients of mine they had some losses. I contact them and i told them about the problem and Hot Forex refund the losses to my clients.
    There I said that truly Hot Forex is the best broker.
