Ranking of brokers are subject to change. Elements that impact our ranking include general Broker Information, such as regulation, year estableshed, avaliable languages, trading platform features, ease of use and customer service. Additional elements that effect the ranking too are the number of consumer visits, percentage of sign ups and purchased services, the user device, operating system, location, the day of the week and time of day.
NoaFX, the brokerage arm of Capital Market Investments Limited in New Zealand, is a financial broker that offers both Forex and binary options trading, a distinct offering in today’s times when most Forex brokers are distancing themselves with binary options offerings. The company is based in New Zealand and was previously registered as a Financial Services Provider (FSP), but has recently been delisted from the FSP list. Consequently, we have serious questions about the integrity of this company and doubts as to whether the company is operating properly, if at all.
NoaFX began as a fund management company in 2006 and worked its way up until 2013 when it began offering services to retail market traders under the name NoaFX. The members of their top management team include Courtney Smith who they claim is the World's No.1 FX Trainer and Hedge Fund Manager.
NoaFX is a 100% STP broker with No Dealing Desk and more than 70% fund management trade flow.
There are 4 different types of NoaFX trading accounts and each offers a wide range of products that include binary options, FX, energy, metals, indices, and commodities. All of these can be traded using the same platform. The smallest order size in any of the accounts is a micro lot order at 0.01 lot size or 1,000 contracts.
In the Live account category, the NoaFX Ultra account is for pure FX traders looking for tight spreads, high leverage and a small deposit of up to $5,000. The minimum deposit for this account is $10 and leverage is available up 1: 400.
Anyone depositing over $5,000 can open the NoaFX Ultra Pro which is for professional multi-instrument traders. It uses variable spreads in true market environments, 70 different products with no maximum capital restriction and the ability to trade FX, Metals, Energy, CFDs and more. Floating spreads start at 1.6 pips and maximum leverage is 1:400.
NoaFX Account Types
A NoaFX joint account offers all of the same great tools and resources for traders as the live individual account but the account is jointly owned and managed by more than two people.
A NoaFX corporate account allows corporate clients the flexibility needed while ensuring that larger orders can be filled quickly and effectively. Corporations tend to trade larger blocks and need to fill bigger orders and NoaFX is able to fill bulk orders quickly and effectively.
NoaFX corporate accounts offer multi-platform trading, high broker ethics, MT4 binary options and complete transparency as well as a superior clearance engine, the highest standards, and the best rates. They provide quick execution times and strive to have zero requotes.
A demo account is always appreciated by new traders and the NoaFX demo account provides traders with the opportunity to get familiar with the markets and gain trading experience without risking capital.
NoaFX also offers a MAMM account, or Multi Account Money Manager Account which allows investors to make money on the Forex market without any trading, while providing money managers the opportunity to earn additional income when they manage client funds.
NoaFX investors look through the account ratings for MAMM accounts, and then decide which money manager account they want to invest in. When the investor joins the trader’s MAMM account he/she will start trading on the account using both personal funds and the funds of the investors. Any trading profits or losses are divided up between the two groups and the percentages are based on the specific share held in the account.
NoaFX is big on CFD trading and offers clear explanations and examples of how to trade CFDs successfully.
There are several calculators at NoaFX including the Margin calculator, Stoploss calculator, Lot Size calculator and the Profit/Loss calculator.
Another key feature about NoaFX is their insurance backed deposit scheme. Under this scheme, the clients’ funds are invested under an independent trust and insured. This insurance is an added layer of protection for NoaFX’s clients as claims against the trustee cannot be paid out.

Recently, NoaFX also introduced a MT4 application which allows traders to trade binary options from the same platform as well. This helps to put NoaFX into a class of its own since there are hardly any major league forex brokers around that offer binary trading on the MT4 platform.
