FXTM or Forex Time, founded in 2011, is still considered a newcomer to the online Forex trading scene. However, within a span of few years, this broker has managed to carve out a name for itself by wining several industry awards such as “Best Newcomer 2013” and “Fastest Growing Forex Broker.” FXTM is regulated by various jurisdictions and has offices in Cyprus, the UK and Belize. Forextime Limited is regulated by CySEC, Forextime UK Limited is authorized by FCA and FT Global Limited is regulated by IFSC.

The Standard accounts are divided into Standard, Cent and Shares account with different contract specifications and minimum deposits. Similarly, the ECN Account is divided into ECN, ECN Zero and FXTMPro Accounts each one with different spreads or commissions.
When doing this review I was pleased to see that a demo account is provided for beginner traders who want to practice their trading before putting any of their own money at risk.
FXTM has just added a new account to its lineup. As of April, 2016, it is offering an account that specializes in trading CFDs in shares.
