The withdrawal costs 20% personal income tax
You even can't withdraw funds after paying the tax. Cheat you into depositing money again and again. You can't get the money back. Is there anybody who has the same experience as me.
Have to pay 20% tax to the broker but you can't withdraw funds. I was cheated of a hundred thousand yuan.
Rakuten is a fraud platform
I agree if I should pay individual income tax. But why I should transfer the tax to a personal account? And my account will be frozen in 48 hours if I don't pay the money
Rakuten Securities is a unreliable platform
I didn’t want to expose the platform at first, but I am really angry when I saw Rakuten Securities’ s score rank at No. 7. I would like to share you my sad story related to this platform. I deposited in the account on 2 Jan., 2019, when the server have been offline for several hours. When I asked for explanations, the employees made no reply. The server went back to normal on 3 Jan. before the market opened and when the market opened, a mega JPY move showed up. Now I should tell you what shameless things they did. First, the platform said there was a fixed spread in 95% of a day. However, pay attention to the rest of 5% when spreads were unfixed and big movement happened with unimaginable big spreads. I mean, when the market opened on 3 Jan., you had to pay a service fee of over 1,500 dollars if you traded one hand USDJPY. Is it exciting? This is the first shameless thing they did. Second, When there were big movements in the market, they would close trading. It is impossible for them to stop doing something before wipe out your account. When you got profits, you didn’t expected to sale orders, and when you lost, you couldn’t cover and lock position. There was nothing you could do. When your account wiped out, the platform could close out the orders. The market movement depends on its will. Third, They will give you cold shoulder when you are caught into problems. They will pass the buck with an excuse of mobility. Is it shameless for the platform to deny the evidence? The trading journal won’t tall lies. The above are enough. Keep away from it, everyone!
Rakuten is not reliable.
At first I invested in Rakuten because I thought they were big brands, having financial security and stable platform. I was very optimistic about it. I opened an account in August 2018 and started trading. There was a time when depositing money process was smooth, but this situation had basically recovered after the Spring Festival. That customer service was not bad. But last week, I was very angry. On the evening of February 27th, I used my five trading accounts to buy long GBP/JPY (including EToro, Jiasheng, Anda and TradeMax) on five trading platforms. Only Rakuten raised a dozen pips, causing my position to be liquidated. When I saw the position liquidation, I quickly took the screenshot and kept the evidence and sent an email to Rakuten. After this week's negotiations, Rakuten internally agreed that the stop loss was caused by the normal spread of the market at that time and did not give me compensation. I don't ask much, just want to get back the stop loss money. A week passed, they ignored it, just saying that it was the normal spread of the market. I want to ask, why the other platforms didn’t liquidate my position but Rakuten? And after the stop loss the platform did not show that the highest price has reached my stop loss. Rakuten’s conduct is a scam. I’ve been trading for years. Such a situation really made me puzzled. Will you still trade on it?
Sweep at 30 points above the stop loss
I made a GDPUSD sell stop order with a price of 1.30475 At 13:59, September 13, 2018, and the stop loss was set at 1.30555. The final order was closed at 13:59:47, and the stop loss was closed at a price of 1.30846 at 13:59:47 (the price was 30 points higher than the stop loss price, and 17 points higher than the highest price in this period). At the moment of transaction, the difference was increased, making the closing of the pending order and the stop loss completed at the same time.

The anatomy of a Forex broker is another knowledge of its own, in addition to practical trading. Before a trader could dive into the currency markets, he needs to first find a credible broker with whom he deposits his capital.
