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.

I love this broker. Forex Club gave me a chance to make my life better and to develop as well. I can't say that it was easy: I studied really hard and lost many times before I started to understand how to trade and managed to work out my own strategy. I'm glad that I decided to try forex-trading and was lucky to choose the right broker.
I appreciate Forex Club as this company taught me a lot. I started to trade over 5 years ago and now I can say that FC made me a professional trader. The educational materials together with interesting forum helped me to gain necessary experience. Now trading is my main sourse of income.
I believe that Forex Club is an excellent broker. I was lucky to choose it at the very beginning of my trading career and I'm happy that we are still together. FC gives me all I need: comfortable platforms, reasonable spreads, fast withdrawals and only the latest and most important information.
I came to Forex Club over 3 years ago and since then I've been successfully cooperating with the company. I studied a lot of educational materials and tried various trading tools before I started trading with a live account. Now I can't imagine my life without Forex. And I consider the company my reliable trading partner.
I'm not a very experienced trader but I believe that your success in this business partly depends on the broker. If the broker is honest and reliable you have much more chances to earn real money. Of course a lot depends on your knowledge and persistence. Forex Club gives everything a trader needs, all you have to do is to have good brains and desire to learn and to practice regularly.
My attitude to Forex Club is absolutely positive. I chose this broker as it is one of the oldest and most reliable on the market. Their platforms are convenient, spreads and deposits - reasonable and support team - really helpful. I hope that in future their conditions and services will only improve.
I began to trade not a long ago and to be honest I wasn't lucky at the very beginning. Like most newcomers I lost my first deposit but I didn't give up. I decided to learn more about trading and so I studied a lot of materials presented on FC's site. I took part in several contests which was really exciting and finally gained some experience. Now I trade with Forex Club quite regularly and I'm really satisfied with my choice.
Of all the brokers ive joined, FC is the best experience i have with forex! there are alot of way to make more here, through contests, campaigns, etc!

To my mind Forex Club is a good broker, it has millions of satisfied clients and a stable reputation on the market. The company provides comfortable conditions for trading and it grows and develops every day. I'm glad that I have such a great business partner that really helps me to be more successful in life.
My opinion is that Forex Club is a good company however it has some room for improvement. Order execution is a bit slow and it would be a good idea to provide new, more modern platforms. As for the rest I believe the company does its business quite professionally and tries to perform a good service for its clients.

The secret of my success lies in sharing the experience with other traders on the company's forums, close monitoring of the situation of the forex market and the right choice of platform.
FC is a respectable company and I never regretted that I chose it as a trading partner. I don’t make a lot of money on forex but it helps me to cover some extra expenses. I chose Rumus as this platform is designed in a professional way and make the process of trading comfortable and safe. My first income was only 30$ but while I was learning more I started to earn also more.
I have some experience in trading and I can say that a lot depends on your broker. Forex Club performs its funstions very well. I have nothing to complain about.

I am pleased to trade at Forex Club.
I found this broker very good. There are no re-quotes at all because of RFQ.
I've been trading with Forex Club for about a year. I trade on ExpressFX and chart with their ClassicFX platform. ClassicFX is extremely customizable, and I can make it look exactly how I'd like it to look and run the way I want it to run. Slow execution times which can be frustrating, but it's at the expense of no slippage.
I personally believe that Forex Club is a great company. Of course it has some problems but to my mind every broker has them. I choose FC as they prove their reliability every day: in providing the services, delivering cash and dealing with clients' issues.
As far as I know FC is an international company, and it’s on the market for about 14 years. I personally like rumus and various program packages.
Forex club is the company I trust and recommend to everybody. Nothing to complain about: I always know that my profit depends only on me. Though order performance sometimes is not fast enough, I'm sure that no one is cheating me.

I've been trading with FC for more than 2 years and I believe the company has everything that a trader needs: reasonable spreads and deposits, modern platforms and helpful support team.
For me there is no better broker than Forex Club. I find everything really satisfying in this company. If you're the beginner you can start from reasonable deposit and learn everything gradually getting the necessary information from the site which is very helpful.
Tried a lot of brokers and for now have the account in FC. Everything is great, quite comfortable trading conditions.
I prefer Forex Club as they offer the best service I've ever had. Everything is done to help the beginner: lots of useful information, comfortable platforms, fast and safe withdraws, what else can be desired? I would never change FC for any other broker!
For me it is a best broker. I've been trading for FC about 3 years — no troubles at all.
It’s an old and reliable company. I’ve been trading with them for about a year and have no serious problems. What I like most its how they work with customers.
Looked here at disadvantages,and decided to post a comment. That's absolutely not true, that they neglect user forums, and have inadequate Forex education center. I love their forum which is one of the most active and liberal. The moderation is adequate, not restricting people to voice their thoughts!
I've been trading at Forex Club for 2 years. I like their service. They offer different ways to fund my depo, variety of platforms and good trading support.
Besides Forex club is safe and old company therefore you can trust them.

FOREX CLUB is the most honest broker I have been with. Simply the best. I know when I have problems with FOREX CLUB, they ALWAYS Pay for their mistakes. Withdraws are easy and fast. Of course there is a lot of room for improvement for FOREX CLUB but compared to the rest, It is second to none.
