What We Liked:

Daily Forex News Video – UfxMarkets provides forex news videos. These videos are very useful for traders as they do not have to read the news anymore. These videos are educative, time effective and resourceful tool for forex trading.
Ask the Broker – This is another trading tool which is an additional service for traders. Traders can ask the broker about forex trading and can also get suggestions in various topics of forex trading.

What We Disliked:

No US Clients Allowed – Unfortunately they do not allow US citizens to open account and trade with them.
No Mobile Platform– They do not have or offer any mobile platform which could be a major part of flexible trading. Traders can not access or trade via cell or mobile phones.
No Scalping and OCO orders – Scalping is a very popular and profitable trading strategy at the present time which is not allowed or supported by UfxMarkets. OCO orders can keep a trader away from unwanted positions due to placed order.

The Bottom Line:

UfxMarkets is a reliable broker with lots of special features. I liked the fixed spread trading opportunity with a wide range of trading instruments most. I also liked easy account opening and fast deposit/withdrawal methods of this broker. Thier Meta trader platform is good for analysis and trading. They should allow OCO orders with scalping opportunities to enrich their features to attract more and more traders. Also, they should offer no deposit bonus for traders to enjoy risk free trading in forex market.

I’ve been all over an UFX Markets stands out with their customer service, but not much else. I opened an account a year ago, traded and earned money. I do like their learning section. It is very informative.
Pros:Strong learning section Daily outlook videos Lots of tools
Cons: No variable spreads No scalping

Portion of actual user comment on fxempire.com

UFXMarkets is basically a no dealing desk broker which is a great advantage for the CFD and foreign exchange market trader. But, the minimum deposit to start trading with it is very high. You need minimum $500 for starting trading
