iForex Review

8 10

Although iFOREX was founded in 1996, it was only in 2004 that it took the major leap into online trading when it launched its multi-lingual internet-based trading platform. Developed by a group of bankers and Forex dealers, iForex has managed to grow by leaps and bounds and is now one of the largest and most respected firms in the industry. iForex is regulated by PSZAF and CYSEC.

General Information:

Minimum Deposit: $100
Leverage: 1:400
Languages: English, Dutch and 15 other languages


iForex offers a choice of three trading platforms for traders.

The FXnet Platform is the backbone of the iForex trading platforms. It must be downloaded and installed. The FXnet platform is ideal for professional traders and includes One-click deal opening, a full Single Screen Function, Advanced integrated charts and more.

The Web Based Trading Platform is designed for traders who want accessibility without the hassle of installing an application on their computers. The main benefit of this platform is that traders can access trading application with any standard browser.

The web based platform allows traders to access a variety of features directly from his or hers computer such as opening and closing positions, depositing and withdrawing funds and viewing account history without any downloading. This platform is ideal for traders who travel and need full accessibility anytime anywhere. There are over 30 tradable currencies to choose from with this platform.

The mobile trading platform is designed to allow traders to trade with their mobile devices or Smartphones. Traders can view accurate market rates and select several robust trading options. The mobile trading platform offers innovative execution gestures such as the new Swipe-to-Close and a customizable layout for easy usage. Traders can access over 80 currency pairs, indices and commodities and can monitor their wallet, balance sheets, as well as their equity and margin details at any time.

Trading Accounts

There are 4 types of trading accounts at iForex:

  • Interest-Free Account (Islamic Account)
  • Premium Account
  • Protected Account
  • Standard Account



iForex provides traders with special education guides with the relevant information to start trading Forex or CFD’s that are easy-to-read for traders at every experience level. In addition, there is a series of interactive tutorials, both basic and advanced.

Their daily market report and economic analysis as well as a daily calendar of major economic events are easily accessible. I would have liked to find a bit more information about the different accounts and clearly missing was anything about a demo account, although the topic appears on the ‘Knowledge Base’ section which surprisingly appeared when I clicked on the email tab for customer service.

iForex offers the opportunity for making money by bringing in other friends. For every account opened and a trade placed, iForex gives a minimum bonus of $35 and up to $175.There was no mention of any additional bonuses. And although the firm’s security and safety are bulleted on each page, I could not find any additional information about the listed Guaranteed Stop-Loss and Negative Balance Protection Program.

Support is provided 24/5 via Chat, email and telephone.

All in all, I found iForex easy to navigate and user friendly. Some of the important content could be placed more strategically but it seems to be all there if you look for it.

    This site is not clear and I wonder why.  I think  iForex is trying to tell us about  all sorts of scams that are out there these days, but I don't think they  really can help me. Scams are all over the place and its good that there are companies like iForex that let the people know what is happening.

    I know this site was supposed to keep me from being tricked out of my money but the iforex scams mentioned can’t be real. They are too far-fetched for me to believe. I don’t trust this broker.Sorry.

    You must be kidding. Those iforex scams are for real. Believe me. I know. My sister was taken in big time. She gave the guy lots of money and he closed up shop and ran away. You can lose all your money if you fall for a Iforex scam so be careful.

    There’s something strange about the iforex scams mentioned in this review. I don’t whether it’s the reviewer or the company. Aside from this, I’m pretty happy with the company. My trades are executed on time and I’ve even managed to make some money. So forget about the iforex scams and just look at the profits.

    I'm not sure what broker offers Hindi, but MetaTrader 4 offers nearly 30 languages, so you might be ok with that. iForex is definitely not worthwhile, but AvaFX offers MT4 accounts and only a $100 minimum deposit, so you can try there - they're also a very honest Forex broker. Good luck!

    Sudhahar, from what we know, they are a legitimate broker with a very rich past in Forex trading. As usual, it is recommended to test out the platform with a demo account before trading real money.

    I read iforex is kind of scam.Is it true?

    Thanks Dilip, we have written many articles about Forex risk, you can see one such example here http://www.dailyforex.com/articles/2010/04/_4505_dailyforex-news_Managing_Forex_Risks.aspx

    As per my experience, forex trading is very dangerous with minimum balance like $100. Better trading with minimum balance $500.

    Hi John. I have been trading with Iforex for 2 years with no negative experience.As for withdrawing funds,if e.g. you deposted $500 via credit card, you can have that $500 deposited back into your card, all the rest will be transfered into your bank account that you supply them with upon registration.

    iForex is a great platform! I invested 2000 usd and just made 4000 usd profits!! I received my cash! Going back in now!! Thanks iforex!

    I will disagree with Mr Talal because I have been dealing with iFOREX since last 10 months. I have only deposited 1000 USD and have withdrawn till date 11250USD and my current equity is 2500USD. I never had a problem in withdrawing funds. I think you need to know how to trade instead of blaming a company.

  • Matt

    iforex has not been fair with me. I invested $400 and i have yet to see any profit. all they ask me to do is invest more and more and I want to withdraw and they will not let me.

    the disadvantages you mentioned is not right because in iforex you can use demo in net version also + in india they are providing online training. i think this disadvantages is written without any research

  • tenzin namdak

    iforex is genuine broker.i am trading here since 6 months. i started my a/c with $100 and till yet my withdrawal is $1200 and still i have $209 in my account

  • Freddie

    All this talk of profit taking makes me wonder is it not true? To iforex can one only withdraw the amount you deposited. What about the money you banked because of a positive trades?

    Freddie July, 2009
  • mohamed

    i have to disagree with mr talal , the deals are correct, and you cant withdraw more than your balance , it does not make sence , good luck

    mohamed June, 2009
  • Talal Al Reyami

    never trust IForex. because they are not trading with your deals in forex market they keep them internally. their profit comes from your loss. you will find out this when you withdrawing more than the amount you deposit (here i am talking if you make big profit and you are already withdrew you capital).
