The LMFX PAMM is for those who are successfully involved in the foreign exchange markets and for those who wish to participate but lack either the knowledge, confidence or time to immerse themselves in the markets.
What is PAMM
It’s always nice when doing a broker review to find information about a demo account. At LMFX the demo account lets traders test their strategies and experience with the LMFX trading platform with zero cost. It offers unlimited usage and the ability to trade from any of the LMFX platforms. In addition, traders can use to demo account to test expert advisors and strategies and mirror as closely as possible actual market conditions.
LMFX is really big on bonuses and promotions.
The Phoenix Bonus which is actually a recovery bonus works like this: When a trader makes their first time deposit into their Phoenix Bonus Account, they will receive an amount of funds 'pending' on the account. These funds reflect a known percentage of the FTD and in the event that all the trading capital is lost, the Phoenix Bonus, no matter how small, will be placed into the trading account on the next deposit. The bonus is applicable on first time deposit and is withdrawable or tradable when the bonus has been applied to the trading account.
The Deposit Bonus matches the trader’s deposits with 100% credit. The bonus can be withdrawn once volume requirements are met.
In addition to the above, LMFX offers traders several generous contests. The LMFX Crystal Ball Contest gives traders the opportunity to correctly predict the most accurate future exchange rate of the currency pair of the week and the three closest estimates to the closing price will win first, second and third place with rewards up to $1000.

LMFX is relatively new on the Forex and CFD scene and is already a popular choice among Forex traders. The choice of different trading accounts is attractive and the addition of a demo account and a PAMM account seems to cover most of the range of accounts that a trader would look for. Surprisingly there is no regulation which would have added to the appeal.
The features at LMFX are quite standard. The LMFX website is clear and uncluttered and is generally user friendly. I found some difficulties opening some pages and needed to click several times before the material appeared. The website and the platforms are available in English only as is customer service. The choice of different trading platforms which include the popular MT4 platform and the selection of different trading accounts are definitely the strongest features.

Fast withdraw broker. Recommened!
Trading with this broker is easy and the spreads are low as compared to other brokers i traded with. Withdrawals are also on time with no deductions. Recommended broker and really worth giving a try.
This broker has excellent services with lowest spreads and instant trade execution as well as instant withdrawals. I am trading for five months and have used their bonus as well.
A good and reliable broker. Especially the majors with their superb spreads . Fast execution and small different SL/TP distance.
The trades are easily executed and so far my trading experience is good with them. I think this broker is pretty new in the market however after trying their services I think that they have an experienced and honest team.
