I like professional approach of the broker. There are economic calendar, effective signals. By the way, when trading on signals, you don't have to analyze the assets at all. I rarely check signals and make good profit on it.
Like many people I will say that the FO is an excellent offshore broker. This broker is suitable for those whose budget is not particularly large and for beginners. I do not deny that professionals are here too, but in 90% of cases, beginners. Actually, if you are at least 25% smarter than the rest of the newbies, you are welcome and you will make excellent money.
One of the minuses is that the broker is offshore and not regulated. Their main advantages will be low minimum deposit, low spreads and no-commission trading, a high level of leverage and the presence of various bonuses at depositing.
I think Forex Optimum is a fine broker. One can make good money with it. There are low spreads that don't expand much, even when important news comes out. And I haven't noticed any gapping or requotes there. Not so long ago I made a lot of money on the news about the US GDP for the third quarter. New Zealand reports were also very helpful. So, I've traded, trade and will trade with this broker. I'm okay with it. Maybe they'll add more crypts, although some people believe that it already has too much of it for a forex broker.
I started trading on Forex Optimum by accident because I've noticed cent account there. I thought that if I lost 10 bucks, nothing terrible would happen at least I would have fun. But I got used to it and began to trade slowly increasing the deposit. At first amounts were very small, but profits slowly grew with the growth of the deposit and the most important thing, I gained experience, because no training can replace practical skills. Forex Optimum is a fine broker that allows you to safely trade, not worrying about your money. The funds withdrawal is done in less than 24 hours. This broker's disadvantage is that it doesn't provide trading with shares, crypts and commodities on a cent account.
I was attracted by interesting things like cashback and various bonuses. While working you notice less noticeable but useful things. For example, demo accounts don't have expiration date. This speaks of the broker's care. Unfortunately, there're no cryptocurrencies on the cent account. It would be nice to remove this restriction.
If you imagine the results of my trading on forex optimum as graph, it's going to be a sinusoid, but rather a saw. But it's just a trait of my temperament and not the broker's fault. Optimum is an ordinary broker, where nothing distructs you from trading. There are things to trade with (a lot of different assets) and places where to trade (well-known mt4 terminal). I never noticed any slippages there, even on the impotant news. And orders are processed almost instantly. I still haven't really tried its bonuses yet. They seem a bit obsure to me.
Cryptocurrency is quite a mysterious thing indeed. The only mutual thing it has with the currency pairs is the word "currency". This phenomena is going to be understood later in the future. So far I haven't found any decent research. But it's all white noise, the real fact is that it' very nice to trade it on forex optimum. There's a cryptocurrency account, a lot of currencies for a broker – too. I've been quite successful at trading there. I generally make 25% in a month. Although they could actually make smaller spreads.
In my opinion a nice broker is the one who normally withdraws money and has narrow spreads. It needs to have enough assets and open orders quickly without lags and delays. Forex Optimum has all this and I trade there mostly successfully. Spreads are floating, but narrow. The leverage is 1:500, and one can invest in lamm. I'm considering trying it. It's a little annoying that there are not enough crypts. But it's up to everyone’s taste.
One client complained about his broker, saying that it doesn't make funds withdrawal and cuts profit. I think that if this is true, then one should appeal to the appropriate authorities rather than writing in forums. I trade on Forex Optimum and I haven't had such problems. Money is withdrawn well, and profit isn't cut. I withdrew 123% to the deposit once and the money was credited in a day. It's a fine broker. Aggressive phone advertising is annoying, but you can cope with this.
