Our verdict

After conducting careful research, we can conclude the following. IFC Markets is regulated by the CySEC broker, which offers a variety of account types, as well as several trading platforms to satisfy the basic needs of any trader. On the contrary, the broker is not supported by the more powerful regulators. It doesn’t support US clients. There are three platforms, but no social trading network. Besides, the broker doesn’t provide a client with bonuses or promotions, and the spreads are not the lowest as well. All-in-all, we recommend you thoroughly study the features of the broker, and then make a decision.

I’ve been using them for going on 2 1/2 years. They are my fourth, and if all continues, my last broker to use. Deposits are timely, withdrawals are consistently timely, spreads are consistent in almost all volumes except end of day, rarely do I get slippage more than a pip, and AND the customer service . . . These people are prompt, courteous, consistent, and knowledgeable.

I recommend them to anyone Iooking to trade fx.

The web site is veeeery slow. Please pay attention to it. Sometimes it’s too difficult to search information or to do anything else…

IFC Markets seem to be one of the best forex platform online ! The service online is very good and you can put any EA (Expert Advisor ) you want. If you have referrals, you can trade directly in their account, wow ! The deposit is instant in your back office and in your MT4 platform. I never withdraw with them, but one of my friend withdraw with them and they are very fast and serious. I recommend this broker to the people, because they are honest and they have a license !
