Leverage

The maximum leverage available is 1:500, for all accounts the leverage is flexible, this means that it moves to depend on the size of the trade. The larger the trade the smaller the leverage will be.

Trade Sizes

Trade sizes start from as small as 0.01 lots which are known as micro-lots, they then go up in increments of 0.01 lots so the next trade would be 0.02 lots. They increase up to a maximum of 20 lots which is an appropriate number. You can have a maximum of 300 lots open at any one time.

Assets

There are a number of different asset groups on ProfitFX Market, we will briefly go over them, there does not appear to be a gull breakdown so we will provide whatever info we can find.

Forex, CFDs, and Futures: All available to trade, but there isn’t much information about the specific instruments available so we cannot state that they are.

Cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and, Ripple are all available to trade.

Metals: Gold, Silver, and Palladium are available to trade.

Indices: Some of the available indices include Australia 200, Europe 50, France 40, Germany 30, Hong Kong 33, Japan 225, Netherlands 25, Singapore 30, Swiss 20, UK 100, US Nas 100, US Russ 2000, US SPX 500 and, US Wall St 30.

Shares: You can trade US shares such as Apple, Gap, Baidu, American Eagle, Bank of America, Cisco, BP, Chevron, Mattel, General Motors and many more.

Spreads

Sadly we only know what the spreads are on a few of the accounts, the Pro Winner account has spreads starting from 1.2 pips, the Pro Markets and Pro Honor account state that they have raw ECN spreads starting from as low as 0 pips. The spreads are variable which means they will move with the markets when there is volatility in the markets the spreads will often wisen and become larger.

Minimum Deposit

The minimum deposit required to open up an account is $100 which will allow you to open a Pro Winner account.

Deposit Methods & Costs

Unfortunately, the site does not indicate what methods are available to deposit with. Looking over the internet we can see some methods mentioned however we do not want to speculate and will only go with what is on the website. So this information is missing and we cannot comment on it, it is also unknown if there are any fees for depositing.

Withdrawal Methods & Costs

Just like with the deposit methods, there is also no information about withdrawals. It is vital that this information is made available as many potential clients won’t want to part with their money if they do not know how they can get it back or if it will cost them to do so.

Withdrawal Processing & Wait Time

We do not know exact times, but in most cases, one can expect withdrawals to be fully processed between 1 to 7 business days after the request is made. We highly recommend that you speak with ProFX Market’s customer service team if you have questions regarding deposits and/or withdrawals.

Bonuses & Promotions

There doesn’t seem to be any promotions or bonuses on offer at the time of writing this review, if you are interested in bonuses then you can either wait or get in contact with the customer service team to see if there are any upcoming promotions you can take part in.

Educational & Trading Tools

In terms of trading tools there, is a lot in the section however not all of it is relevant, we will quickly go over the bits that are. There are a number of different indicators available such as technical indicators to use, there are also a number of different calculators for working out a profit, pivot levels and pips. Currency converters are also available as well as some sentiment markers. Finally, there is an economic calendar that indicates upcoming news events and the markets that they will affect.

Customer Service

Should you need to contact ProFX Market, you can do so in a number of different ways. You can use the online submission form, fill in your query and you should get a reply via email. You can also use the postal address, phone number, email or skype username to contact them.

Address: 71-75, Shelton Street, London, UK
Skype: Profx Market

Demo Account

There is a button to open up a demo account, however when we tried clicking it, the page it loaded was broken and so we were unable to open up an account.

Countries Accepted

The only statement present is the following: “Forex Trading is not allowed in some countries, before investing your money, make sure whether your country is allowing this or not.” If you are not sure of your eligibility, you could contact the customer service team to find out.

Conclusion

The account pages provided by ProFX Market is a little confusing, there is a lot of info missing or muddles up to make it hard to understand what the real differences are. The trading conditions that we do know are passable. However, we do not know much about the forex currency pairs as they were not present on the site and we could not use the demo account to check as the page was not loading for us. There is also a lack of information on deposits and withdrawals, this is vital information as we need to know how we can get out the money in and out and also how much it will cost. Without that information, it makes it hard for us to recommend them as a broker to sue at this point in time.
