Forex Club Review
Forex Club, established in 1997, is the brand name for a group of companies that provides clients from over 120 countries with platforms and services for trading Forex, CFDs and other online trading and educational products. ForexClub was one of the industry’s first to offer zero spread trading and commission refunds on all unprofitable trades. Traders can choose from 45 currency pairs and more than 100 CFDs.
Their Russian broker, LLC ForexClub, is a founding member of CRFIN, the Russian self-regulatory organization.
The minimum deposit size is $200 and $10 is the minimum amount needed for trading. The recommended initial deposit is $5,000. Typical leverage is 1:100, though 1:50 and 1:200 leverage is also available. Maximum leverage for accounts holding over $300,000 is 1:500. 100,000 base currency units is a standard lot, and 1 000 base currency units is the minimum lot.

Forex Club offers Swap accounts. Forex trading is a SPOT trading, which means that all trades are settled on the second business day after a position has been opened.

SWAP is executed automatically at 21:00 GMT.

Another interesting feature at ForexClub is TradeCloud which is a web-based system which makes all Forex Club trading platforms accessible from any PC, laptop, iPhone, iPad, or Android connected to the internet.

Autochartist is available from the very beginning whereas Trading Central signals are available for subscription after your deposit exceeds $500.
Forex Club’s Sentiment Index displays changes in the ratio of traders buying and selling a specific currency for a given period of time. The index is also used to forecast the best time to buy or sell a currency and is a tool that gives traders a better understanding of the current market situation in greater detail.
Several chart patterns are presented and they are explained in detail. These include three different types of triangles—Symmetrical, Descending and Ascending; Double Tops and Double Bottoms, Head and Shoulders, Reverse Head and Shoulders and more.

Forex Club has a wide range of features that suit both new and experienced traders. I was pleased to see that a demo account is available with a generous amount of virtual money. I was disappointed, however, that there were no bonuses or promotions offered, something that most brokers use to attract more clients.Back to Top
