      In the last quarter of 2019, are you still considering where to invest your money? The illegal brokers, targeting investor‘s mindset to make a fortune on the forex market, fan their anxiety of being “left behind” through advertising hype such as “precious metal continues to soar, it’s the perfect time for going long”, “profit effortlessly on the bullish gold market” or “start trading gold with only ¥1 through leverage”.

      4. PTFX who took up the 4th place is an illegal broker that WikiFX has warned investors against several times. Please stay away from this very risky broker.

      5. DSY and HX who are new to the list both have low ratings, with DSY holding a suspected cloned license and HX under offshore regulation.

      Notably, plenty of investor complaints suggest that the illegal brokers often lure investors into their traps by taking advantage of investors‘ eagerness to profit. Usually they allow clients to make small profits at first, and after gaining investors’ trust, these brokers coax their victims into making greater investments, even when suffering heavy losses. Here are the typical warning signs of illegal brokers that investors should beware of:

    •   Enticing investor into opening account;

    •   Trading on the investors behalf;

    •   Having serious slippage issue;

    •   Offering misleading trading signals;

    •   Causing investor heavy loss that results in negative balance;

    •   Showing misleading market trend;

    •   Taking investors money with a private account;

    •   Failing to execute investors stop-profit/stop-loss accordingly;

    •   Frequent disconnection/ server malfunction of the trading software.
