, Russia.

On my mind, this broker have the slowest support team I have ever seen.

Everything started from my verification process: they asked me to send a lot of documents for a three times. Every time they asked me to send different references. So, this process take a lot of time (2 weeks).

And the second important thing: I'm still waiting for my withdraw. I have created a withdrawal request 10 days ago. Every day I ask support team about it, but they answered something like "you have to wait a little bit more", or just ignore me.

, Latvia.

This broker is not so good, as you could imagine. They only want your money.

After my deposit they made me a trouble to pass verification, then support ignore me. When I asked about withdraw my money, they didn't answer me for a 3 days. So, be careful with broker choosing.

, Canada.

I would like to share my personal experience with IFC Markets. Hope it will help someone to make correct decision in choosing a broker.

So, my journey with IFC started 2 years ago. They offer fixed spread account which attracted me the most (I had some bad experience with floating spread ). I made a small deposit about 100 $ to give a try and I got the following in return:

1. Fast execution on both MT4 and Nettradex platform ( using nttx for PQM method)

2. Really low fixed spread on all my favorite assets (EUR/GBP 1.8 pips, Alibaba stock 8, Brent 6 etc)

3. Operative and fast payment options (mostly I use Skrill and card)

After first good experience with 100$ I took the risk and made a reasonable deposit about 5k I've got the same good service in return. It's obvious that with 5k my profits were higher as well and broker never made any problem during the profit withdrawal (I had such issue with another broker who just did not let me withdraw about 800$ profit).

Now IFC Markets added some more Canadian stocks which make me happier cuz I'm more into stock trading, they also added BTC.

Another additional + for IFC is a bunch of analytical tools and materials and good customer support team who always tries to find solution if any issue occurs.

Summing up, I can say only one thing - Highly recommended

, Cyprus.

, Latvia.

Hello! I want to show my own expirience about trading with this broker.

My first impression from this broker was rather good, their website looks good. So I make a decision to work with them.

After my first small deposit everything was good, I have everything needed for trading. So I make the second deposit, 2000 $. After a few trading weeks I want to test a withdraw system and create a withdwal request. Problem started here. Support team said me, that my request will be confirmed in a five days, but two weeks spent after my request and I have nothing done. Support team asked me about different documents every time, and it's look like they doesn't want to send me my money back. So, be careful with choosing forex broker.

, Romania.

Good and reliable company. First of all, I advise to trade with IFC Markets to stock traders. There are many companies introduced. There is also a very interesting thing – PCI method that allows you to increase or decrease volatility by creating your own tool (a La index).

, Romania.

I am very happy that I found this company. I absolutely recommend IFC Markets to everybody. It is 2.5 years I am trading with them and they never stop to perfect their service. Both conditions and support team are good enough. Execution is very fast and money always arrive within 24 hours.

, Slovenia.

I'm an expirienced trader, and once I saw IFC Markets advertisement. I think it was good idea to start to trade with them. But it was a great mistake.

After registration I make a deposit with 300 $. Technical part is not bed, but spread was high. Also support team don't want to answer to my question and you have to wait for the answer almost the whole day.

Another story with withdraw, it's impossible to withdraw your profit. Support team told, that they are working on my question, but nothing changes.

, Ukraine, Lviv.

As many of us I have traded with several companies and there is something I noticed:

Info on official website not always represent the facts!!! It just makes me crazy every time.

And there is why I am writing my first review about any broker:

Info on IFC markets site is equal to real conditions. Only once there was a problem: they promise to withdrawal profit within 24 hours. On November 26 at 10 a.m. I applied for withdrawal. November 27 no money after lunch time. At 6 p.m. I called to the company to speak with manager about this problem. It was my first withdrawal of really large amount while trading with IFC, so I think you understand why I had no patience. After a standard for this case conversations manager promised to me to fix my problem within 2 hours, but it was solved only on next day after lunch time. They apologized and promised me that it would never happen again.

I would like to meet at least one broker with totally equality with reality info. I wish IFC Market’s management team have time to read my review before my next withdrawal. Because everybody could make mistakes, but good company should to prove them!

Big plus for conditions and service.

Minus for being late with my money.

, Germany, Ganderkesee.

Hey. IFC markets is my number one brokerage company for already 3 years. I love the way they working. Platforms, execution, trading conditions and support all are on top level. An there is a reason why I will never change my company: IFC markets always adds some extra perks and useful technologies, number of instruments growing regularly. For example, recently they added uBtc and lots of Asian stocks. I am stock trader and variety of shares is very important for me.

About analysis of IFC Markets: There are too many newbies in trading nowadays and most of them are deceived by straight trading signals. And many of newbies don’t want to think, they want to be told how to make money. IFC Markets never gives straight signals, they provide analyses with controlling risks. And this is the real trading. This is the way brokerage company should provide analyses.

I wish they will keep this working way and never run for clients with cheep methods.

, Netherlands.

I’m very glad I have found this broker. IFC Markets never plays with my positions and I never lost my money because of company. So, I feel totally confident about my money. In addition, there is Annual Interest on Free Margin and this means a lot for me.

, Poland.

Having believed good reviews throughout the web, I decided to trade with this broker and check myself. Their client service was very much polite during my initial steps with demo when I was questioning them how to deposit. When I deposited just a few dollars conditions were quite appropriate, I faced average order executing (that was really quick, by the way) and being short-time trader, I managed to produce good percentage of profits. But after having deposited considerable amount and entered market with high order volumes, the action began. They started executing my trades for several seconds, and since I perform mostly short trades, all in all I had almost nothing at the moment of orders closing. Twice or trice it happened that closure of trade was urgently needed, and it closed with slippage. Just a couple of hours were needed to lost more than half of the deposit. The turning point was when during a good motion, due to long order closure processing my account stopped out BEFORE even having the trade closed, but it was not news trading, just a volatile movement that is normal for Australian session. I compared quotes of that trade to mainstream sources and found out that by all of them price movement was exactly for my target direction. This allows to suggest that had I been trading with a different company that time, I would have gained profit (something near 120 pips). I addressed to the support asking about reasons of such execution failures but they answered that all is working good by them and I should check my internet, soft and hard. After having informed them that I have a separate laptop especially for forex and use it for nothing but trading they just keep silence for some days already. So I can conclude that they were just luring me with good service but needed me only until I make deposit. Not sure if I'm able to take the rest of money but all you who want working with IFC just be careful and consider my situation before starting with them.
