Reviews

73 reviews of Alpari are presented here. All reviews represent only their author's opinion, which is not necessarily based on the real facts.

, China.

Alpari offers a good solution to deposit funds into the account. I usually use neteller.

I recently read an article about investing in PAMM-accounts and decided to consult for this to audited company.Service is good.

, india.

scam scam scam big scam when the time if CHF crash the windup the company liquidated now again start with new face and new promise guys dnt open account with this broker big fraud scam

, Deutschland.

now back off guys! I've got my profit i can withdraw and that's all I need !

alpari is not so bad

, UK.

Best avoid this company, if they are not trying to screw you with requotes they'll catch you on the stop loss, +17 pips slippage what a joke non of my other brokers have even got close to that.

, UK.

I signed up with Alpari UK back in 2010, back then I used EA's and during the Asian session fulfilment was good and the prices were better than reasonable.

However during the London session requotes made robot trading impossible. I also used to trade the news and you couldn't get near price during news events.

However their customer service was fine and they were as prompt and professional in returning my money on request as they were about taking it. I've not used them since but would consider them in the future.

, Italy.

On Alpari-forex.com a real and a demo account with same EAs, same settings and running in the same PC, have very different results. The demo are on gain and the real are on loss. Not recommended to anyone for any reason.

, england.

I am new and looking for a broker I considered Alapri because of there telephone support But the reviews are off putting along with allegations of taking account money due to a technicality on another website dedicated to Forex.

, Ireland.

Alpari UK is a parasite living on the earning of honest traders. I have noticed a big discrepancy how the demon and live account works. All traders please check the difference of pips you earn and the profit you get, there is a huge differences and every time you trade, you will loose more than you earn on the same pips difference. Although the mobile trading plateform is good but that does not make any sense if all your blood is sucked by this trading parasite. Avoid Alpari and go for something else... although most traders are dishonest.

, Nigeria.

Alpari is fraudulent!!On 3 September 2012, I invested $1000 each in your Pamm Portfolios; namely Kutuzov, Kant and Churchhill. As at today, 5th december 2012, the performance on your site shows that Kutuzov have moved from a return of 121.52% to 154% (+33%), Kant from 218.70% to 251% (+32%)and Churchhill from 243.93% to 273.24%.(+29%). However all my investments in these Pamm Portfolios are showing losses as follows:

Kutuzoy -$54

Kant -$67

Churchhill -$70

How is this possible?! i suspect that you are dishonest!!! Please avoid them

, United Kingdom.

I tried Alpari on a classic account after using their demo platform but I quickly saw a noticeable increase in trade execution speed. This led to the server constantly giving requotes.

, Cyprus.

reqoutes, reqoutes, reqoutes, reqoutes, reqoutes ... the worst broker I had experienced!

, London.

I would like to rise several issues against Alpari UK.

I installed EA system for the Alpari Demo MT4 platform. I just copy and pasted this EA in to new installed Demo metatrader folder. I launched this demo platform to check how EA works and was satisfied. Then I open my Life Alpari platform which I haven’t been used for a last month and all of my Experts Advisors were switched off during this time. The button “Experts Advisors” also has been switched off for all this time. So, after I opened my Life account I realized that order was already open by the EA which I just installed to another folder for demo account. How this could happened if I never had been used this EA for my life account.

Basically what happened:

1. Order was open by EA while the life platform was closed and "Expert Advisors" button was off (was disabled).

2. This EA have not been used for my life platform never before but this EA still open order for this life platform.

I had long conversation via email with Alpari UK complaint service. Generally they said:

“Dear Sir

Thank you for your email.

You installed the EA on MetaTrader.

Whether you use that installation to login to 1 account or 100 accounts is irrelevant.

It doesn’t change the fact that you installed it on the machine.

Kind regards

Paul Chenery

Team Leader, Client Services”

Please tell me how copy/pasted EA to folder C:Program FilesDemoPlatform could open order in another life platform C:Program FilesLifeAccount. I was lucky this order was open by 0.01 lot. But next time order could be open by 1 lot and I will lose my deposit.

From my point of view they did not ignore the fact that all EA`s systems from alpari demo MT4 can influence on life Alpari MT4. So, their life MT4 is not secure from outside influence and orders can open at any time even you life platform is closed and "Expert Advisor" button is off.

They ignored to compensate my losses and point me to contact EA vendor to resolve this problem. I strongly believe this the fault of dealer Alpari UK.

Second issue I would like to rise is about Alpari UK quotes.

The pair is - USD/CHF. Date - 20.09.2011. Time - 23.00 GMT +2.

There is a huge spike down on 80 pips just in 1 minute. Next day I tried to find out the reason of this huge spike. I went back to this chart and was shocked to see that spike was disappeared on my eyes. The spike was left of no more that 30 pips. Alpari Uk just CLEARED OFF other 50 pips. This is pure manipulation by Alpari UK of their quotes after quotes have been done on chart.

, uk.

Alpari Ru or NZ is a SUPER BIG SCAM¡¡¡ they open the spreads not only during news, and bet against you so they hunt your stoploss like hell. I wanted to close a trade and the dmed dealer did not let me until i was from positive to negative, big way. I hate you

, Lagos, Nigeria.

Alpari, micro account is a big scam, you can hardly make profit.They trade against you on many occassion,they liquidate your SL at will but your TP will hardly be taken.They frustrate traders

, russia.

i was using netdania.com chart i discovered that on netdania aud is 0.90824 but on alpari chart it's 0.90989 because i sold they did not allow it to go to the actual price so that i will not be able to buy back. pls this needs to be reviewed alpari is scamming people seriously
