NewForex is certainly a new broker on the block. The website is easy to navigate and there is a choice of two different trading accounts. But there are some important features missing and trading can only be done on a web based platform to trade on which is not always accessible to traders.
There are some nice features at NewForex. The ones that stand out are the forum and the Trading Session Map.

In addition, the numerous educational offerings at NewForex are of high quality and informative.
