Avatrade closed my trading account and informed me I would not be verified because I reside in Quebec: I was then denied of the profit I made but was told on the contrary that if I had made losses, my balance-losses would be paid to me........If Avatrade does not actually want to fraud traders, it should have denied them right at the point of registration once quebec is entered into the online registration form.

AVATRADE IS A SCAM, help your hard earned money by avoiding avatrade

Hi everyone, I am struggling with Avafx since longtime but my money is stuck in the platform hence with them. AMAR is my account manager and he is only interested in all your deposits to the account.

1. Poor customer support

2. No technical analysis or guidance provided

3. Delays in deposit transfer to account which creates panic and you have to hedge at higher levels.

4. Although they promise you trade recommendations, they leave you to trade on your own and incur losses. 5. What is concerning regarding trading is , AVA practice dealing desk what means they are dealing against you (their client, make money on your back and the only goal is that you feed them more with your money.

Please save your hard-earned money and don’t trade with avafx.

The experience where ok got my money but they redrew all kind of expenses. Wrote to http://www.fxvalutahandel.com and got them to contact Ava. Not the best broker I have tried.

, Russia.

I have sent them 1000USD payment, they have accepted it but did not add it to my account. They said this is a third party deposit (although I used my name while sending). So I simply lost all money immediately.

Ava FX is regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland. If you feel they have wronged you, you should complain to the bank. They may run an investigation if they see fit. Here is the bank's web site address:


Good luck.

I have been with AvaFx for a year now. No problems with cash out whatsoever. The account manager and the support team is friendly and always return your calls/queries. No problems for me.

, Italy.

Ava Fx cancelled 186,929.00 euros of my profits! Stay away from them! Read my full story here: http://mycfd.blogspot.it/

They changed the rule of dividend application on CFD Equities and they deleted all my profits without any advice. Many other customers experienced serious problem with Ava Fx and we have formed a class action and have sued the company. The Irish Financial Ombudsman also opened a file to inspect thei activity.

, Malaysia.

I've been trading on-and-off with AvaFX for over 2 years. First part of it was fine. No problem with executions. Problem occurred few months ago when I back trading after taking several sabbatical months. First weeks or so was fine. I was making profits from $100 to $500 in two weeks. Things get ugly when the MT4 connection is down! It wasnt for 1 day but for weeks! Almost everytime I execute a trade! How frustrating could that be!

I get frustrated, I contacted my account manager and he told me. "AvaFx is currently upgrading their server". But he told another story to my friend, who happened trading with Ava too. Isnt that craps?!!!

Spreads are high.. stay away if you could!

A am registered in this broker, AvaFX have large large spreads

(I am form Slovakia, we have silver medail in hockey 2012)

Martin AVAFX are not Irish! They are Israeli owned the founder is Negev Shekel does that sound irish to you. They are in Ireland purely for cheap coporation tax and easy regulation. They trade against clients as market makers. 3 ticks spread in the eurusd why would you trade with them on that. Avoid at all costs

, France.

I use AVA FX to trade virtually all asset classes; FX is not my favourite and I prefer commodities and indices.

I experienced many troubles with their account opening team. I've been given misleading and inaccurate informations more than once. Funding the eventually opened account was no problem though.

So i've been trading with AVA for a month now and orders that are placed in fast moving markets are accepted when the market moves against me but always rejected when prices move my way.

Like above, AVA has no problem splipping me when an opening price gaps against me, but never positively slip my stops/limits when an opening price is favourable to me.

Also, AVA doesn't allow editing orders once markets are closed, which is terribly annoying when you study your charts at weekends like I do.

AVA is a bucket shop, and one should use them for what they are worth, till one builds sufficient capitals to open an account with a REAL broker such as Interactive Broker.
