During the first 2 months, I didn't face any problem. But then, I began to have problems with my positions, especially with TP orders, because although they hit the fixed level, they were not closed, so I had several losses. At the beginning, all was good. Trading conditions were excellent, spreads especially in major currencies were fixed, so in 2 weeks I could get $550 with EUR/USD. Their MetaTrader 4 started to have delays of 2-3 seconds and the spreads were crazy high during news feed. I called nobody ever answered to my questions. I decided to close the account and I went to other broker.

Stay away from IC Markets if you don't want to lose your money. I had an account at this broker for several months and the platform never worked properly while I was trading with them. All I had were technical issues so I really was not able to make any decent trades.

I started to think that this broker just wanted to take advantage of my money. They just suggested, but the advice worked, and made me lose. They are very cunning. They did not even explain why they cancelled my profits for this month. Spreads are not too much competitive and support team is not professional. I easily lost my money with this broker because they doesn't honor the stop loss I'd set on my trades. Traders will suffer losses but the broker is getting a profit while trading system never made improvements.

I had a great start at IC Markets but for some reason, their services just downgraded. Their platform became unstable and I just can't make a decent trade using it. I have no idea if they will fix this issue because they are also not responding to messages.

I was hoping that my trading experience with IC Markets will be pleasant but it was the opposite. Their trading platform was fine but the spreads are too high. Also, I have encountered a lot of slippages already which is really not good.

I have started to be suspicious of this broker since last week. Because the internet connection has started to become unstable. It caused me not to be on time to trade. Spreads are too high and they do not reduce For some pair, also their first deposit is kind of big for beginners, we consider the local currency. Mostly I scalp and I like that IC markets doesn’t give me profit with that. Their spread is still unreasonable 3 pips for EUR/USD and other major pair like GBP/USD, USD/JPY and AUD/USD.

I haven't any complaints about ICMarket broker, As they didn't increase spread and their cTrader is stable for fast execution server, while the websites are easy to use. In their platform, I have applied automated trading strategies after setting an EA. Last week I have withdrawan$400 via wire transfer. Also, I get their support at any time when I asked. Overall ICMarket broker services are professional. Thanks

IC Markets is a decent broker. However, they still have a lot to work on such as their trading platform. It is easy to use during normal market condition but when it comes to news announcements, the platform is expected to crash. It is limiting for those who wants to trade on news release. Their spread also varies and the amount is sometimes unreasonably high. Simply put, the problem often arise when there is high volatility in the market, otherwise, trading activities go smoothly.

I shouldn't have joined a broker like this. They only took one-sided advantage. They even entered my account, without being informed beforehand. In my account there are $ 3500. Without explanation, they immediately froze the account. They are slow, customer support is unresponsive and there are often problems with withdrawals.
