Leverage with TRUE FOREX goes up to 1:400 for their True4x Mini Account. Although this account is catered for beginners as it has a low minimum deposit requirement, it is important for new traders to be cautious of having such high leverage as this can result in major wins as well as major losses.

The minimum trade size for the Mini, Standard, and Pro accounts is that of 0.01 lot. The ECN account has an increased minimum trade size of 0.10 lot. There was no indication of the maximum trade size that clients can trade when using this broker, but, we did find that accounts are limited to a maximum of 10 open trades/pending orders at any one time.
From this broker’s Accounts page, one can notice that the Mini, Standard, and PRO accounts are commission-free, whereas the ECN account has a commission fee associated with it. We weren’t able to identify what this commission is as there seems to be no information regarding it. Although TRUE FOREX claims that there are no fees when dealing with the above-mentioned accounts, we did find this statement in their trading conditions; “All trading performed on this website shall be subject to the following potential charges: spreads, overnight interest and inactivity fee”. After some in-depth searches, we managed to locate the value of this inactivity fee which is $25 for 30 days of inactivity and $100 after a year of inactivity.
When it comes to assets, this broker has quite a variety to choose from including Forex Currencies, Metals, CME Energies, Indices, Commodities, and CFD US.

Clients can find a clearly outlined spread values for each asset that they wish to trade with on TRUE FOREX’s website. For example, both EUR/USD and USD/JPY have spreads starting at 2Pips.

As we mentioned before, there is no information regarding the minimum deposit requirement for opening up a Swap-free account with this broker.
Deposit Methods & Costs
TRUE FOREX accepts a number of different depositing methods including – Credit cards, Skrill, Neteller and Wire transfer exclusively by its member banks. In their transfer fees section, this broker only mentioned the Bank wire method, which indicates that no fees are associated with this depositing methods.
Withdrawal Methods & Costs
Since there is no indication of what withdrawal methods are available with this broker, we are assuming that the list is identical to that of the deposit methods, but obviously we cannot be 100% certain. On their Account Funding Channel, they do mention that withdrawals by bank transfer may have intermediary and/or beneficiary bank fees applied. There is also some information in their terms and conditions page regarding withdrawal procedures, but it is not very specific. We did send TRUE Forex an e-mail regarding this query, but no answer was provided during the completion of this review.
Withdrawal Processing & Wait Time
Withdrawals by bank wire may take up to 3-5 business days to be cleared. This is basically all the information provided regarding withdrawal processing and wait time, so we cannot offer more info regarding this at the time being, but this broker states that they offer one of the fastest processing times in the market. We also could not view the withdrawal request form from this broker’s page as this document was unavailable.
Bonuses & Promotions
At the moment, this broker seems to have 2 bonuses available. The first is the 20% welcome bonus. This bonus is only applicable to clients holding a MINI account. With his bonus, clients can maximize their deposited funds by up to 20%. In order to receive this bonus, clients must make a minimum single deposit of $100 or more as any deposits under that amount will be not entitled.
Bonuses are applied to the clients’ first deposit as a new customer during the promotion period. As always, one should be wary of these bonuses as there are usually strings attached. For example, for this 20% welcome bonus, a client must execute a minimum trading volume of 10,000 base instruments for every $1 bonus within 3 months. If this target is not reached, the bonus will be canceled and removed from the account.
There seems to be another bonus available at the moment, the $25 Live Welcome bonus, but the page for this particular bonus was not working whilst we were writing the review. We are unsure if this is a technical issue or whether this bonus is no longer available for clients.
Educational & Trading Tools
TRUE FOREX has a LEARN page that has the usual basic information regarding trading such as the meaning of frequently used terms within the trading industry. Apart from these short explanations, this broker falls short of offering any up to date information or news regarding Forex or trading.
On the other hand, TRUE FOREX does have a number of additional trading tools available such as; Economic Calendar, Holidays Calendar, Currency Convertor, and Forex Glossary. Obviously clients can also make full use of trading tools found in the MT5 platform.

We could not find any information regarding any restriction this broker might have when it comes to certain countries, but whilst checking out the list of countries available when opening up a new account, we did realize that only the United States Minor Outlying Islands are listed and not the US.
The diverse accounts available, as well as tight spreads offered, make this broker an interesting one to consider. Obviously one must be cautious of high leverages and unreachable bonuses. Although their website has a modern look and is quite user-friendly, we did notice some spelling mistakes here and there which makes us wonder whether this broker is as professional as he claims to be. We must also mention that True4x is a trade brand of TRUE FOREX LIMITED, a company that seems to be based in the United Kingdom, but it is not licensed by the FCA or any other European financial regulator, which is something potential clients should consider.
Although there is no mention of cryptocurrencies being available, this broker does offer quite a wide variety of assets available for trading. Another plus is that True Forex uses one of the best trading platforms out there which is the MT5 which enables users to make use of some great trading tools which may help them with their trading endeavors.
