- Christian Harris, Reviewer

Founded in 1999, FOREX.com is now part of StoneX, a financial services organization serving over one million customers worldwide. Regulated in the US, UK, EU, Australia and beyond, the broker offers thousands of markets, not just forex, and provides excellent pricing on cutting-edge platforms.

Trading App

Running alongside the MT4 and Web Trader platforms, the FOREX.com app offers full trading capabilities on a user-friendly, compact platform. Integrated news and analysis, plus real time trade alerts, are two mobile specific features that set this app above the crowd. Additionally, it beats out MT4 when it comes to mobile charting tools, with over 80 indicators and 11 chart types, not to mention a slicker design that we love.

Forex Trading

FOREX.com continues to uphold its stature as a premier FX broker, offering over 80 currency pairs and boasting some of the most competitive fees in the industry. With EUR/USD spreads dipping as low as 0.0 and $5 commission per $100k, it stands out. Moreover, its SMART Signals help to identify price behaviors across numerous major currency markets.

Stock Trading

FOREX.com provides access to a wide array of US, EU, and UK stock CFDs, featuring spreads as narrow as 1 point. This enables you to speculate on established household names and emerging IPOs, fostering ample opportunities for diversification within stock portfolios. US stocks are accessible from as low as 1.8 cents per share.

CFD Trading

With the ability to take both long and short positions on 5,500+ CFDs across forex, stocks, indices, commodities, and cryptocurrencies, FOREX.com excels. Its exclusive Web Trader platform offers an excellent trading experience, equipped with over 80 technical indicators and average execution speeds of just 20 milliseconds, ensuring an optimal environment for serious day traders.

Crypto Trading

You can trade a small range of 8+ cryptos against USD, EUR, GBP and AUD with tight spreads and no virtual wallet required. Algo traders can also utilize Expert Advisors (EAs) to automate their crypto trades.

  • Best US Broker 2019 - DayTrading.com

✓ Pros

  • With over 20 years of experience, excellent regulatory oversight, and multiple accolades including runner-up in our 'Best Forex Broker' awards, FOREX.com boasts a global reputation as a trusted brokerage.
  • The in-house Web Trader continues to shine as one of the best-designed platforms for aspiring day traders with a slick design and over 80 technical indicators for market analysis.
  • Alongside a choice of leading platforms, FOREX.com offers a superb suite of supplementary tools including Trading Central research, SMART Signals pattern scanner, trading signals, and strategy builders.
  • FOREX.com offers industry-leading forex pricing starting from 0.0 pips, alongside competitive cashback rebates of up to 15% for serious day traders.
  • There’s a wealth of educational resources including tutorials, webinars, and a stacked YouTube channel to help you get educated in the financial markets.

✗ Cons

  • Despite increasing its range of instruments, FOREX.com's product portfolio is still limited to forex and CFDs, so there are no options to invest in real stocks, real ETFs or real cryptocurrencies.
  • FOREX.com's MT4 platform offers approximately 600 instruments, significantly fewer than the over 5,500 available on its non-MetaTrader platforms.
  • Funding options are limited compared to leading alternatives like IC Markets and don’t include many popular e-wallets, notably UnionPay and POLi.
  • There’s no negative balance protection for US clients, so you may find yourself owing more money than your initial deposit into your account.
  • Demo accounts are frustratingly time-limited to 90 days, which doesn’t give you enough time to test day trading strategies effectively.

This FOREX.com review examines the advantages and drawbacks of trading with one of the leading forex and CFD brokers. We’ve analyzed the elements prospective day traders should consider before opening an account, including thoroughly testing the platform and highlighting the standout features.

Note, the products and services available to you at FOREX.com will depend on your location, and on which of its regulated entities holds your account.

Regulation & Trust

4.9 / 5

FOREX.com is one of the most trusted brokers. It’s authorized by 10+ regulators, 9 of which are ‘Green Tier’ (NFA, CFTC, CIRO, FCA, CySEC, ASIC, SFC, FSA, and MAS), demonstrating a commitment to high standards of investor safeguarding.

FOREX.com is regulated by the following financial bodies:

The CIMA regulation, in particular, has led to huge growth for the brand in the Middle East, across Africa, South and Central America and South Asia.

Its parent company, StoneX Group Inc, is also listed on the Nasdaq stock exchange (NASDAQ: SNEX), underscoring its legitimacy.

Client funds are held separately from the company’s capital, ensuring protection in case of financial difficulties in the case of the brokerage. Additionally, UK clients benefit from asset protection through the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS), offering coverage up to £85,000, while Canadian clients enjoy protection up to $1,000,000 through the Canadian Investor Protection Fund (CIPF).

FOREX.com provides negative balance protection, a requirement under ESMA regulations implemented in 2018, for its UK/EU clients.

Unlike other brokers that offer ‘just’ two-factor authentication (2FA), FOREX.com provides both 2FA and biometric authentication options for its mobile application, ensuring a secure environment.

On the downside, US clients do not receive negative balance protection to safeguard their funds. While fairly common, this means that US traders facing negative account balances may find themselves owing more money than their initial deposits, increasing the level of risk.

Accounts & Banking

4 / 5

Accounts

Although the minimum deposit requirement is relatively low at $100, making this forex broker an appealing choice for beginners, some other competing brokers, notably Pepperstone and OANDA, have no minimum deposit.

I found setting up an account straightforward, and the entirely digital process can be completed in just a few minutes. The only potential delay lies in awaiting approval, which may take up to 48 hours depending on your time zone.

Before depositing, I recommend trying a demo account. One is accessible through the proprietary FOREX.com platform, while the other is an MT4 demo account. These accounts come preloaded with $10,000 in virtual funds but are frustratingly limited to 90 days.

Deposits & Withdrawals

FOREX.com lags behind many brokers in terms of deposit options. Payment solutions are dependent on your jurisdiction and are limited to credit/debit cards, a few e-wallets like PayPal, or wire transfers. US traders only have access to debit cards, ACH transfers and wire transfers.

Cards and PayPal deposits should appear in your account within seconds, while a wire transfer can take up to 2 business days.

FOREX.com doesn’t charge for deposits, but your card-issuing bank may charge you a cash transaction fee if it treats your transaction as a cash transaction.

Live accounts can be funded with 8 base currencies depending on your account jurisdiction, including USD, EUR, and GBP. This is better than most brokers, but not as accommodating as IG, which supports 12 different currencies.

Opening an account using your preferred base currency offers a significant advantage: you can avoid conversion fees when funding your trading account in the same currency as your bank account, or when trading assets denominated in the same currency as your trading account’s base currency.

You can fund your account quickly via the FOREX.com client portal. Simply select ‘Funding’ and then ‘Deposit’. Then just follow the on-screen instructions to complete the payment.

Similar to other brokers, the withdrawal process can be slower. Withdrawals can only be made to accounts under your name, and initially, you must use the same methods for withdrawals as for deposits.

Disappointingly, US and Canadian customers are charged a withdrawal fee (from $25) if their withdrawal is under $10,000.

Bonuses & Promotions

Assets & Markets

4.3 / 5

FOREX.com specializes in forex and CFDs, which means that certain popular asset classes like real stocks, real ETFs, or options are not included.

Also be aware that the products and services are contingent upon your location and the regulated entity that oversees your account. For instance, CFD trading is prohibited in the US.

However, with a wide selection of instruments available, including currency pairs (84), stock index CFDs (17), stock CFDs (5,500), ETF CFDs (20), commodity CFDs (26), bond CFDs (12) and crypto CFDs (8), the brokerage provides excellent trading opportunities.

In particular, FOREX.com stands out for its extensive selection of currencies and shares, which surpass that of the vast majority of the almost 500 brokers we’ve tested, making the broker an excellent option for forex and stock traders.

FOREX.com also scores well in the investment offering department after enhancing its range of products in recent years, including bolstering its suite of stock CFDs in 2022 for Canadian clients.

Leverage

Leverage of up to 1:200 is offered (subject to regulatory limitations, capped at 1:30 in Europe and 1:50 in the US on forex, though you cannot take leveraged positions on spot gold and silver), with lot sizes starting from just 0.01.

I found the default leverage setting on the FOREX.com platform remains fixed at 1:50 and cannot be altered. However, MetaTrader 4 accounts allow for adjustments to leverage settings, with options ranging from 1:10 to 1:20.

💡
Make use of risk management tools while trading on leverage, notably guaranteed stop loss orders which are available to EU/UK clients of FOREX.com, but not US clients.

Fees & Costs

4.6 / 5

FOREX.com offers excellent pricing, particularly for active day traders.

Overall, when comparing FOREX.com to FXCM, OANDA, and other competitors, live pip spreads are comparable or better, particularly for major pairs like the EUR/USD.

Additionally, a currency conversion fee may be applicable for trades settled in a currency different from your account base, typically around +/-0.5% from the prevailing market price. Rollover rates apply for positions held overnight, commencing from 5PM (ET). Thankfully for day traders, this cost should be easily manageable.

In terms of non-trading fees, FOREX.com imposes a $15 (or base currency equivalent) inactivity fee after one year of no activity, although you can temporarily disable your account to avoid this penalty.

I would like to see FOREX.com introduce interest payments on cash balances. This is available at alternatives like eToro and Interactive Brokers, and provides a way to make money on idle funds.

Platforms & Tools

4.6 / 5

FOREX.com provides a superb range of software, tailored to diverse trading styles and requirements.

My only criticism is that there is no copy trading service, an increasingly popular tool among aspiring traders, provided by alternatives like eToro.

Web Trader

Its proprietary web platform (also available as a desktop) stands out. It offers a user-friendly and customizable experience, making it a solid choice for those seeking convenience over technicality. The desktop platform has the same functionality as the web trading platform, but I do think the design feels outdated.

FOREX.com WebTrader platform

With 10 chart types and over 80 technical indicators, the platform is well-equipped for in-depth technical analysis, catering to day traders. Moreover, I appreciated the integrated economic calendar and account management features, which helped to streamline my trading activities within a single terminal.

Ultimately, the FOREX.com Web Trader is one of the best proprietary platforms that I’ve tested, especially if you are looking for a quick and easy-to-use platform.

TradingView

FOREX.com also lets you trade directly from the superb TradingView platform, so you’ve got intuitive charting tools and visualization features with a high degree of customizability.

Among TradingView’s most notable features are financial market screening for identifying trading opportunities, dynamic alerts and notifications customizable for various factors, access to over 80 technical indicators, and the option to create custom solutions using PineScript.

Additionally, you can benefit from a community forum for discovering new ideas, receiving strategy feedback, and gaining insights, making it a great network for aspiring traders.

TradingView charting platform at FOREX.com

MetaTrader

Although my least favorite platforms due to their clunky and retro design, MetaTrader (MT4 and MT5) are extremely popular due to their extensive tools, customization options, and support for automated trading.

The software offers a comprehensive array of features, including heat maps, security screeners, built-in technical indicators, historical data, and more. A standout feature is the Expert Advisors (EAs), particularly favored by experienced traders seeking automated trading solutions.

How to trade on FOREX.com MT4 platform
MetaTrader 4

FOREX.com offers the largest number of servers for hosting MetaTrader, surpassing other brokers globally. It provides MetaTrader Web and MetaTrader mobile platforms, along with various add-ons, establishing itself as a leading MetaTrader broker for software integration.

Another advantage of opting for MetaTrader is the abundance of online tutorials available, facilitating you in maximizing your utilization of the platform.

Apps

Once you open a FOREX.com account you will also be able to download their apps for Android and iOS devices.

While using FOREX.com’s app, I’m always pleasantly surprised by the full trading capabilities, advanced charts and integrated tools offered. You can set up alerts, access an economic calendar and utilize integrated Reuters news.

All apps have 26 indicators and 13 drawing tools. On top of that, scrolling between live quotes, charts and current positions is quick and easy.

The newest version of the app includes ‘dynamic trade ticket’ with risk management updated in real-time, orders set by price, pips and PnL and powerful new charting (including templates) provided by TradingView.

Upon testing, I found that on the side of the app, you can access support via phone or live chat. You will also find training videos within the application to help you make the most of the platform.

I particularly like the iPhone and iPad apps, where the sleek user interface really comes into its own.

You can easily view rates, market analysis and change your leverage from within the app. Depositing and withdrawals can also be made from within the application.

Research

4.8 / 5

FOREX.com’s market analysis and insights exceed industry standards. It effectively consolidates its research resources within its own platform, ensuring easy access and organization.

You can access multiple news channels, automated pattern-recognition modules from Trading Central, and blog updates from FOREX.com’s global research team.

Reuters headlines stream continuously, and a Trading Central-powered economic calendar, Market Buzz, and Technical Insight are integrated.

Trading calendar at FOREX.com

What I really like is that FOREX.com also delivers high-quality written content daily, encompassing various markets and sector themes.

This includes weekly features such as the ‘Week Ahead’ series, as well as daily articles authored by in-house analysts and integrated resources from third-party providers. The result is a wealth of research tools to help you discover trading opportunities.

Education

4.5 / 5

FOREX.com provides a superb variety of interactive courses, including training videos designed to enhance understanding of chart patterns and risk management.

What I find particularly useful about the educational material is that the courses can be filtered based on your experience (beginner, intermediate and advanced) and include progress tracking so you can conveniently continue your learning at a time that suits.

In addition to courses, lessons, Q&As and quizzes, the ‘Foundations of Forex Trading’ live webinar series covers useful topics such as market outlooks and trading Nonfarm payroll (NFP).

Course at FOREX.com on managing risk

You can also benefit from quarterly outlooks, economic calendars, NinjaTrader access, Trading Central access, live daily market updates, comprehensive technical reports, and weekly insights on major financial events on the broker’s YouTube channel.

Expert analysis and insights into assets within the new markets pages are also provided. You can navigate to the ‘Pivot Points’ section for daily, weekly, and monthly support and resistance levels, while an alphabetized glossary of financial terms is available within the technical section.

I continue to be very impressed with the educational materials at FOREX.com and it’s definitely one of the best resources I’ve seen from a broker. The only drawback is that content, apart from technical analysis topics available, can only be accessed via the main website.

Customer SupportTesting FOREX.com live chat support

FOREX.com’s customer support services are outstanding and are offered 24 hours a day from Sunday to Friday via telephone, email, or live chat.

Personally, I always head straight to live chat first to try and get issues resolved as quickly as possible. In my experience, engaging with FOREX.com’s online chat function has been commendable, although I have had to wait a few minutes for an agent to respond. My queries are always resolved, however, without having to send an email.

The broker’s customer service team is capable of addressing various issues, ranging from inquiries about minimum and maximum lot sizes to withdrawal concerns and leverage calculators. Additionally, they can assist with general complaints, questions about interest rates, operating hours, or web login problems.

The comprehensive FAQ page on the website, which is organized into major categories covering topics such as managing funds, opening an account, and trading with margin, is well written and is a great help.

Forex.com is the best broker I’ve used, period. Reliable, low trading fees and excellent analysis tools.

For me Forex.com has proven to be a reliable broker. The Smart Signals are really useful for analyzing currency markets while the trading platform itself is responsive with dozens of indicators and a slick design. I would like to see a copy trading service though, I’ve seen lots of brokers offer that these days.

I can’t fault Forex.com for trading currencies. The web platform is excellent with all the charts and tools I need. Spreads are also very tight. If you want a forex broker you can trust, it’s a great option.
