Very popular broker with average trading conditions. But news trading is unreal - crazy spreads and slippages and sometimes even requotes. It seems more like a bucket shop rather then ECN broker. All complaints, found the typical excuses that are technical points and fix everything soon. Add me in skype - vovkfx, and I will help you to choose the best broker for you.

I'm using Markets.com for about 3 months by now. I have a micro account (100$) and by this time I don't have any complaints to them. If I had any questions or problems, support staff answered very fast by phone or by e-mail (from 30min to few hours). I faced some problems with my account manager when he was not available about one week. But there was the mistake from both the side. He didn't tell me that he was on leave and I didn't try to contact any other. After that, sometimes even on holidays, I received their replies. Most of them have blackberrys so they reply on unusual day too. My managers are polite. Once, I had problem with my platform and there were more than 3 people to help me out. All the deposits made by me were timely deposited and as well for the withdrawals. It takes arounf 7 business days. I would add their daily and weekly reviews as a plus too. Thus, Markets.com is a great broker to deal with because they have great bonus offers everytime and low spread. You can choose from fixed/floating spreads. Wide range of services. From of all these things, I have referred too many traders to Markets.com!!

Although sometimes in extremely volatile periods the platform can freeze or slow up due to increased heavy trading. Guaranteed stops will help to prevent this or use the phone which may take a few crucial seconds to get through. The phone manner is very abrupt but efficient, quick and easy. If your not used to talking to a sharp broker and making quick decisions then these may not be for you. Your not the only person they speak with. The mobile platform is also extremely useful for when outside or away. Active with them for 4 years now. :)

I had a positive outcome last day when I placed an order. My order was filled instantly and earned substantial amount from it. They never increased the spreads of USD/JPY. So my account was not affected when the market rose up. Tomorrow, I will withdraw some of my profits through Webmoney. I hope the system fee is the same. So, I recommend this broker to anyone. Have a safe trading guys!

I had opened an account at markets.com and they promise that If I Invest $200 I will get $50 bonus. So I had invested the $200 but I never get the $50 bonus. I sent email to customer support about this and get no answer.

Horrible slippage, trades are almost always being executed against me, especially around important news. I think, it’s impossible to make any profits with this broker, I will not be investing more money here.

Spreads are too high and although it is regulated, it doesn't offer too much security for trading accounts. Their platform is too slow and with several slippages and requotes

What I noticed is that there is a slippage during major news releases, but I noticed that it can be both in my favor and against me. I find it really fair. Also I like the fact that they explain on their website how commissions are calculated on their Pro accounts and there are numerous examples.

Too high spreads. They provide excellent customer support, I have a VIP account manager, who helps me with everything. They also have great educational materials for their clients and offer fast execution of my orders.

This company doesn't work well. Spreads are too high and although it is regulated, it doesn't offer too much security for trading accounts. Their platform is too slow and with several slippages.
