Pros and Cons
- Wide Range of Assets
- Extensive Share Trading
- High Spreads
UBCFX, founded in 2018 by a parent company which has been in the retail Forex / CFDs brokerage business for several years, is an unregulated Forex and CFD broker headquartered in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. They state that they operate a no dealing desk interference trading model, suggesting without explicitly claiming that they run an STP/ECN type of brokerage operation. A very wide range of over 545 assets for trading are offered, in 56 Forex currency pairs, commodities such as Gold and Silver and Crude Oil, 9 major global equity indices, 15 cryptocurrency pairs, 143 European stocks, 8 Indian stocks, 296 U.S. stocks, and 72 international stocks.
Traders are offered the choice of several different account types to choose from, but all offer fixed spreads. No commissions are charged, which is unusual for a broker which claims to operate through a no dealing desk model. Maximum leverage offered on Bronze and Silver accounts is a very high 200 to 1, while the Gold account offers an even higher maximum leverage of 400 to 1. The minimum trade size for Forex is 1 mini-lot (0.10 full lots), which is unusually high. Most brokers allow trading in micro-lots (0.01 full lots).
The smallest account offered is the Bronze account, requiring a minimum deposit of $500, followed by the Silver account, which requires a minimum deposit of $2,000. Gold accounts require a minimum deposit of $5,000. There is a VIP account which is by invitation only.
All account holders are entitled to several free perks: daily signals, video tutorials, live support around the clock, a personal account manager, and a risk management plan. A Silver account entitles the holder to a UBCFX credit card, the ability to hedge trades, and an invite to VIP events, while the extra perks beyond those which comes with the Gold account are account performance analysis and a rushed withdrawal facility.
Spreads in all accounts are fixed, typically at 3 pips for the benchmark EUR/USD currency pair, which is very high by modern industry standards
A demo account is available, as is typical with nearly all spot Forex and CFD brokers.
The most notable features of UBCFX worth emphasizing is the extremely wide range of markets which are offered for trading. Well in excess of 200 global equities may be traded. Additionally, there is a wider than usual availability of tradable cryptocurrencies. Hedging is allowed, but automated trading is not available, as robots cannot be attached to the Sirix platform.
UBCFX offers no choice of trading platforms: the well-known and popular Sirix platform is offered in all its several device formats. This is a great choice for fans of social trading.
UBCFX keep things relatively simple, so you won’t find some of the bells and whistles that are often touted within the industry. Instead, they emphasize their goals as offering a great service. The transparency comes in the form of the no dealing desk, clear prices which are offered for trading.
UBCFX has an educational offering on their website offering a range of video tutorials, webinars, and an Ebook. A blog will be launched shortly, from the time this review was written. Market news updates are included in the “Trading Tools” section for account holders.
