I feel so guilty joined City Index. Their platform is unstable. It does not always run smoothly. I can still earn a few profits, but there have been some missed opportunities because of the platform's technical issues. Five months since I joined them, I didn't see any improvement from them. So, I had to stop trading with them. No profit as well on these six months because of their bad trading conditions. They are an unreliable and unprofessional broker. No more trade with them. I'm moving to another broker.

I deposited $100 at City Index and after one week, my account balance was down to half already. There is an issue in the platform and some of my trades are automatically closed even though I did not set a TP or SL. It will always close at a losing position which made me lose so much. I am still waiting for the response of the company now.

I prefer City Index broker so far. Almost two months ago, I made a $1500 deposit via Skrill and got 30% welcome bonus. Using their AT Pro platform to trade and found far the best execution I have ever get. I never get disconnection problem and all my EAs work very well. Last CPI news I place an order using EA and I got profit 261$ that was wonderful. One week ago, I withdraw $640 from my profit via Skrill and they send it on my account same day even they did not deduct any fee. City Index surely deserves a 5 star rating!

I had a lot of issues with this broker. Execution of trades is always slow, spreads is too wide, which only leads to my loss. Even the support team has not been helpful, they are ignorant people. Also, the issue that made me stop trading with City Index is that I have sent a withdrawal request, and it's been two weeks now, but I still didn't get my money! Be careful with this broker. I really don't recommend them

Trading the EURUSD pair at City Index is highly profitable because of the tight spread. However, when it comes to other pairs, the spread is too wide. I am honestly only trading the EURUSD pair now because the others are just unreasonable. Thankfully, I still manage to earn somehow.

City Index is a scam. I got profit $800 and I requested for withdrawal but they didn't give it yet. I have called support team, they said some issue and they asked me to wait until they finish to investigate the issue and it's been 3 weeks I'm waiting for it but they don't respond me at all. I am still waiting for my money and I won't lose it, but I don't recommend this broker for your trading. Stay away from this broker.

I have been trading at City Index for two years and a half now. The trading experience is pleasant. Throughout the years that I have made my trading activities with them, I don't remember being troubled with anything huge. I have never encountered a very big issue that it has affected my trades. Also, although I withdraw my profit rarely, I can say that their transaction system is efficient. My fund is always transferred to me withing the estimated time of arrival.

I have been trading CFDs on FX, Stocks, Commodities and Indices with City Index for 2 years now. I have always found their customer support be helpful. Even when office hours are closed here in Australia, the lines divert to the UK and they are great to deal with. The spreads are great, usually only 1pip on the FX majors but do go to 2-3pips when market is volitile. Their ticket system is easy to use and fairly responsive. I have had troubles logging in from time to time, but not often. The ticket system have a little bit of delay sometimes due to high volume or volitility was may take 10-15 seconds to execute, but it usually only takes 2-3 seconds to execute normally. Their charts could do with more few more features though. It has the basic line study stuff like, vertical, horizontal or angled lines and Fib retracement tool, but that's it. But for me, the basics is what is successful. I have returned 840% net profit on my account last financial year end 09/10. I'm happy with that for a second year trader.
