bad withdrawals. camielle314atgmaildotcom

I had a bad trading expxerince it was difficult to get a withdrawal after many failed attempts, I had to hire a recovery solution firm to get my funds back. Glad I got refund.
ETX has never been Finspreads..

Years ago (like, a decade) ETX Capital was called TradIndex. Finspreads has always been Finspreads, but is now part of the GAIN group, which also owns City Index, and others. So, not connected to ETX at all, which is owned by Monecor, a wholly seperate company.

Stay away from the company

I have been able to recover the money I lost to ETX Capital, the brokers asked me to invest more money to make double of the money. They never allowed me to make any withdrawals , I have deposited over $45,000 . I reached out to them and never got any response. I recovered al my money with the help of [link removed] a certified binary options recovery expert , he was able to help me with my problems , he can help you too
Awful service

They're just incompetent on every level.
Decided I had to prove address and ID to conform to money laundering regs, didn't email me, then froze my account. It took me a great deal of time and hassle for them to finally sort themselves out and get it right, (I live in Asia) but in the meantime, I'd had an open trade that was profitable turn into a loss because they wouldn't allow me to close/adjust the trade!! Very annoying. I could go on, but their service and trade platform is all very poor.
I'll stick with Oanda
Very large spreads to catch the unwary

They might promise 40-50 basis points spread either side of the bid/offer for their spread but in reality the proce you'll have on offer from their platform will be in the region of 180-200 basis points (almost 2p) either side of the bid/offer.

Massively uncompetiitive compared to other platforms. Steer clear IMO.
Horrible broker

Horrible broker unless you never want to withdraw money. It took more than two weeks, over 20 emails, a cancelled transaction (thank you and 5 phone calls to get them to transfer the money to me. This is after taking 15 GBP for not making a trade. I also lost over $160 USD due to the exchange rate change from the cancelled transaction to the one I was finally able to make. No apologies, just slow response and terrible service.
A decent platform to start off on

I have been using ETX for a few months. Decent range of markets with good selection of equities. Spreads are pretty decent on major indices in-hours. Dont like the black background on the platform though which cannot be customised and if you run positions, the overnight financing is higher than most other brokers and they dont offer a hedging facility. Overall the customer service is quite decent and they dont charge for same-day withdrawals. On balance the positives though do outweigh the negatives IMO.
Pros just about way up the cons

I have been with ETX for 1 year.


The major issue I have is the charts. There are large data gaps on day and weekly charts and you are unable to save your charts in a workspace which is realy annoying.

They recently split nymex into 2 markets; Daily and Intraday. They did this withought warning and they removed nymex from my watchlist. I had to figure out what they had done as no info was sent out. This was very poor service.


The spreads on nymex are prety good and the spread band is a nice touch.

You can open an account with no deposit.

Min stake is 50p.

No charge for deposits or withdrawals.

It is also easy to navigate.
Glossy on the outside... poor after a while

Been with them off an on for 2-3 years.
Recently Stops have not been triggered.
Ts and Cs say stops are not guaranteed which is fine if the market was particularly volatile.
However, when stops fail to be filled in what most would consider normal market conditions there is a problem.
Also, every email generated when placing a trade confirms that a trade has been accepted and executed.
Except it has not and they will adjust for any mistakes that they have make on pricing despite confirming orders have been filled and executed at stated pricing levels.
In short you cannot reasonably guarantee where you are with them.
The trading platform is reasonable but lacks much sophistication. Pivot Points for instance seemed to be calculated from 12 midnight not market opening which is terrible for resistance and support plays and not indicated anywhere.
I feel that I have wasted a lot of money by not looking around and trying other suppliers. My advice is avoid.
Good luck with your trading.
