I think their customer support is good. I have tried several FX brokers and some brokers are not very friendly and respond slow. In general, FBS replies to my email in 12 business hours. This makes me feel relieved and I can focus on trade.

FBS not only focus on trading condition but also educational broker to help starter, intermediate and also professional to keep learn and increase their knowledge and strategy to win on forex trading. FBS give us many education material and content on their site, blog and many source, we can use it with easily.

In my opinion, FBS is a Broker that may be enough for beginners and intermediate operators to start or continue trading. They have ample educational material and anybody can open a standard account with just $ 1. With respect to customer service, it's also quite good, although it is only online, but 24 hours and very fast.

, Brazil.

I'm a beginner in Forex trading and FBS has make things easier for me.

They have great educational material, a nice support and, best of all, it is easy to make a deposit here, in Brazil.

I can use digital wallets that I already use for other internet e-commerce and that make things easier for me.

That is it. Nothing very special, but an easy broker for me.

, Viet Nam.

I have traded with FBS broker for 2 years and I have to say my experience with this broker is very good. The first time I deposited 1000$ and lost 300$, but then I joined their Telegram channel and follow their analytics and they support me with the trading strategy well. Though Facebook support sometimes delay, but website and email support is amazing. sometimes, spread is quite high but it not matter

, FBS.

Dear Alex!

Please, kindly be reminded that according to the 50$ bonus promotion conditions:

Each client/computer/IP can open only one “Bonus 50” account. It is prohibited to work through proxies or using any IP-address modifying software. Opening the second Bonus $50 account is impossible even after bonus funds are charged off.

Upon suspecting fraudulent activity on the Bonus account, the company reserves the right to deduct the entire bonus amount and profit made with the Bonus account without notice. In this case, the decision is beyond contestation.

As you may see, this rule implies that more than one bonuses cannot be opened from one and the same IP or device, to exclude the situation that one and the same client opens several Personal Areas with different IDs (fake or other person’s).

Unfortunately, it has been found out, that your bonus account has violated the bespoken promotion conditions, that is why your bonus account has been blocked.

We would like to point out that each account is submitted to a very thorough examination, which includes more than searching for the matching IPs.

Also, let us remind you that you were trading on the bonus funds, i.e. funds of the company until it has been confirmed that all promotion conditions were observed.

FBS is not interested in deducting the funds for no reason: first of all, we do respect our clients, second - it could have damaged our reputation. Nevertheless, FBS strictly checks the conditions fulfilment.

As for deposit, despite your implies, FBS never holds back clients’ funds and a client always can withdraw deposited funds.

And regarding the leverage, FBS is a big regulated broker company providing its services all over the world and, therefore, has the possibility to provide such big leverage.

, FBS.

Dear Ayanda Vincent, it’s sad to hear that you were not satisfied with your experience with FBS. We would love to take a close look on the situation, but, unfortunately, you didn’t leave here any account details so we could check it and provide a proper answer. To our regret we failed to understand what exactly do you mean by right and wrong side. In case your issue wasn’t resolved properly, please, kindly contact us via e-mail (support@fbs.com) - we will do our best to help you.

, South africa.

, Greece.

I have been trading with xm.com for the last 7 years. After xm announced they will be lowering their leverage to 30 I started looking for other brokers. This is when I stumbled upon FBS which seemed like a good alternative and they were also running a $50 no deposit bonus.

So I thought I'd give it a shot. I registered an account with them, went through the verification process and received the $50 in my trading account.

The $50 bonus account conditions are as follows: You have to trade a total of 2 lots and make more than $25 in profits in order to be able to withdraw said profits (meaning bonus not included) to an account of your choosing (I chose Skrill). Of course you are only allowed to open one (1) bonus account.

So once I went through verification I received the $50 in my account. I went on to trade a total of 2 lots and made about 117euros in profits. So I immediately tried to withdraw the profits to my skrill account just to check if they were trustworthy. About 30 minutes later I login to fbs.com dashboard to see that my withdrawal request was declined with absolutely no explanation given. They even went as far as to cancel my MT4 account.

The next logical step was to contact their live chat support which I did.

The conversation I had with them went as follows:

Chat started

Alex: hello

Chloe joined the chat

Chloe: Hello! Thank you for contacting FBS support!

How may I help you?

Alex: Hi

Alex: why did my withdrawal request get declined

Chloe: What is your account number?

Alex: 4923200

Chloe: The IT department has detected that you have opened/used more than one bonus account 50 from the same IP address or device. This is NOT allowed. In fact the rule appears here https://my.fbs.com/bonus/bonus50 , point 10. The server saves this information, and, unfortunately the account can not be unblocked.

You were informed with the bonus rules when you opened your account, it is implied that you accepted these rules when you clicked in "open account", and that you had knowledge of the conditions set by the company.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

They claim I opened multiple accounts with them which makes me wonder who is wasting their time opening multiple bonus accounts knowing that in any case if they manage to make a profit they won't be able to withdraw it. I certainly didn't register multiple accounts with them. When I asked them for some kind of proof they couldn't provide any. And I know for sure they won't be able to debunk my claims because I used my home internet connection to register to fbs and I know for a fact that there has been only one registration to fbs.

Also it makes me wonder how, since you receive the $50 only after ID verification has been completed, there can be multiple bonus 50 accounts opened. Does this mean that someone other than me has my ID, the same face as me, the same name, the same birthday as me has opened an FBS account. I really don't see how is that possible. If anyone knows how can they can claim such a thing let me know.

I even tried to deposit money to my FBS account prior to receiving the bonus, thankfully the deposit didn't go through for some reason, otherwise I'd have lost not only my time but also money with them.

In reality I should have been more cautious because they're one of the few companies that still offer no deposit bonus (actually they dont really) when this practice has been outlawed in Europe. And they also offer a 3000:1 leverage.

To conclude, don't waste your time with FBS.com. The experience I had with them indicates me that they're untrustworthy.

Also why would they run a no deposit bonus if they can't fulfil their end of the agreement.

Sorry for the long read.

PS. This is the first time I post a review regarding any service, but I just felt I needed to warn fellow traders.

Forex trading bears intrinsic risks of loss. You must understand that Forex trading, while potentially profitable, can make you lose your money. Never trade with the money that you cannot afford to lose! Trading with leverage can wipe your account even faster.

CFDs are leveraged products and as such loses may be more than the initial invested capital. Trading in CFDs carry a high level of risk thus may not be appropriate for all investors.
