has anyone used hot forex?

http://www.hotforex.com/

the only thing that's putting me off is they are based in Mauritius (and regulated there) and have found little in the way of reviews. however they offer great spreads, are ECN and have a 20% bonus.

or can anyone recommend a broker (for forex mainly) which is ECN, has tight spreads (EU no more then 1 pip, GU no more then 2 pips) are regulate (i'm in UK and would idealy like it to be the same) and preferably offer some sort of joining bonus........thanks

I dont understand why people would even consider risking sending money to an offshore forex company. Just google their address and you'll see its a mail drop or virtual office, there are dozens of other unrelated businesses registered there. That took 30 seconds to find out, if you dig deeper you'll find more.

If there is a problem do you seriously think you are going to claim back your money from a small island off Africa? How would you even start, take them to court? Do they even have courts there? Madness to even think about sending them your money.

I dont trade forex personally but I imagine there are plenty of UK based regulated companies to choose from. At least being regulated gives you some chance of compensation if they go bust. The following link seems to list them but I'd also independently check they are regulated by looking them up with the FSA.

I use GO Markets for trading and they are based in australia. I previously used an asian broker and it wasnt so good. The reason i chose GO, was because they are regulated by the Australian Financial Licence law. I think it is important to go with a regulated broker in any region you live.

I use Hotforex.com and i am really happy with them. Realy fast withrawals and execution.
the first few days have been good.

However,

Last night I started to receive MANY requotes on Scalping positions,

Now I wake up to find out that they have disabled Trading.

Yes that is right, they have given me the " Trade Disabled"

I have open positions and Pending orders that I can not Close,

I can not open new orders.

I have contacted Online chat--- No help-- " reset your Platform"" - Yeah that really works.

I've contacted Technical support After 2 hours of waiting around for someone to contact me about the issue as Customer support said they will have someone contact me and fix the problem ASAP.

Well it has been a total of 3 hours now and counting. No email support yet.

And still no trading functions.

And I really thought this broker would work out.

its not like I gave them $5000 or anything, But I do not believe in most broker reviews so I like to test brokers out on my own.

here is the account at Hotforex. I've also added some information on the Discussion of this system. I hope everything works out. Their spreads are good and execution is so fair good, besides the requotes I got last night

Agreed. Gomarkets was good. But they kicked me out at the last minute after the CFTC regulations..

So these offshore brokers are really my only hope, because I refuse to be binded my the US regulations

Headquartered in the Republic of Mauritius ? An offshore entity? Did you read any of their legal customer documents? They state "The amount of time needed to execute a Request depends on the quality of the connection. Under Normal Market Conditions, the Requests are usually completed within one and ten seconds" One second? You do realize that's incredibly slow. 7 days minimum written notice to withdraw? No mention of account segregation, liquidity provisions, or anything of any use or reassurance.

Why someone would want to entrust their hard earned money here is beyond me. There must be 50 MT4 bucket shops that would be better, if one can't decide from the top 5-10 major ones.

...that.. O M G that... obviously registered there for tax purposes or blatant scam

don't be silly original poster

just sign up with ig markets or CMC, i use cmc, nice clean platform, easy to deal with customer service (here in NZ anyway)

also 1 pip spreads on the EUR... 'tis but a dream the broker will have some other fee structure to make sure the economic effect is the same as 2 pip spreads

Nobody with any brains will believe you. Don't worry though, plenty of idiots want to trade forex too.
