Sure thing, I heard from somewhere that brokers who offer deposit bonuses actually do it because they want you to trade larger lots, so that they can earn larger commissions, and for those who trade larger lots, most of them (since majority of retail traders lose) would just blow their account faster. and the broker would remove the bonus applied to any account once the equity deposited is lost. I had read thru the terms and conditions very carefully before taking up this bonus, and I know that for my position size calculations, I would just use the amt of cash I deposited, and totally ignore the bonus amount. I figure that in abt 2-3 yrs, I would hopefully have traded more than 1000 lots, to enable me to withdraw the bonus. This is assuming that I have not done any withdrawals before, and have not blown up my account by then!
Well yes, if you’re not going to trade bigger lots choosing a bonus just vanish the MC and SO the rest of trading setup remains the same. Personally I also don’t see the benefit of margin call and stop out for trader, it simply serves protection for a broker.
Real solid and trustworthy broker. One of the best in the market with excellent services (support, funding, withdrawals, execution, etc).
I have to agree w you. I was impressed with how quick the platform feels, even if its still MT4. Skrill withdrawals were made in maximum 1 day too.
Have you tried wire transfers from Hotforex? What are the fees?
better to use eWallets.
fees depend on the bank you will use and each bank has different fees. As i am aware, HotForex are covering the fees for bank wire deposits, but if you ask me, it would be better to use eWallets (Skrill or Neteller). You can find some useful information for HotForex and other brokers at theforexlist.
I have open real account with hotforex few week ago. I deposited $200 and they also provided me the bonus. But i can’t understand their platform. Why it is to slow…scam ???
Hotforex is totally scam…and we have to find the way to put this company to the international court, to be shut down.
Hotforex scammed me out of $345 there response is dreadful,they have told me to wait 45 days !!
Hotforex broker is a big scam. They offer a fake %100 deposit bonus, once market go against you, they will take the bonus
and your money will be wipe out. This has happened to me. Never deposit your hard earned money with this fraudulent

I have used HotForex since Feb 2015 primarily with the PAMM accounts. I DO NOT recommend this broker or using the PAMM options. Since Feb, 2015 to about August I deposited in incremental amounts based on the various manager performances, close to $ 2800. By the final week of October I had $10,638.97 (BALANCE) -$123.39 P/L week - $5,484.36 (EQUITY) - I had never made a previous withdrawal request as I wanted the equity to build and the performance thus far seemed profitable with good risk management. The following week I get my updated reports which reflect $11,045.74 (BALANCE) -$406.77 p/L - $2,769.14 (EQUITY) drop in my available equity…following week first in Nov I see a loss of $900 to my balance and then I see one of the PAMM account blow up the entire balance Closed Trade P/L: -4031.3862 and my equity at $-30.21
I contacted support and was not pleased considering this seemed strange for this particular PAMM. I was emailed this was a technical glitch and my account balance was restored for that one PAMM. I verified this by logging in the next day. Something was seriously amiss. My balance and equity was restored. I immediately initiated my FIRST and only withdrawal of all of my available equity from about 5 PAMM accounts which was about $2950 USD…while pending, the next day all of my remaining PAMM account balances reflected this activity:
Fund Manager:1001582 (FX FUND 1) Closed Trade P/L: -1725.6777
Fund Manager:90556 (SmartForex) Closed Trade P/L: -883.4011
Fund Manager:1041607 (ChessMoon3) Closed Trade P/L: -2724.373
Fund Manager:147712 (FX WAVE 2) Closed Trade P/L: -814.0445
Fund Manager:1028160 (FiberFxFund P1) Closed Trade P/L: -715.0518
All these separate PAMM accounts on the very same day went negative, effectively blowing up the entire balances. All right after I initiated my first and ONLY withdrawal which was my available equity which ironically just about matched my deposits over the few months. Coincidence?
I contacted support and this is what I received as a response:
Thank you for your email.
Please note that the results of the Fund Mangers are updated and they can be found on the Performance Page of each Manager. We can assure you that the situation has been kept under systematic review and the Drawdown on the accounts did not resulted due to any technical glitch but as per recent market moves, which can be monitored on our website.
Please note that we truly understand your concern, however please be advised that Forex trading is highly volatile and carries a high degree of risk and for that reason, there is no guarantee of definite returns on your investment.
Therefore, the live progress of investment can be monitored from the myHotForex area, PAMM V2 accounts tab. Additionally, equity level is further justified with the Open Positions Indicator tool as it enables investors to monitor the P/L of each open trade and the Profit/Loss relative to their investment size and participation in those trades.
For any further assistance we remain at your disposal.
I then received this final response after pressing further as I essentially lost all profit:
Kindly note that your complaint has been escalated to the Compliance Department.
We make reference to your previous email.
In respect to that please note that we have only been able to highlight one single PAMM master account which was stopped out under your investment. In case this is not the occurred please revert back with further details.
Firstly we would like to make clear that all the information required in order to make an accessed decision on whether a client should invest or not in a particular account is publicly available through our website.
Moreover, we provide the clients with explanation on how the system works and furnish each potential client with all the terms and conditions and agreements relevant to this service. Agreements which each client must fully agree prior to opening an account with the Company.
By agreeing with the terms applied to the services provided we assume that each client have fully read and understood the benefits of the system and any potential limitations regarding the trading decisions that are made once you place your funds with a PAMM trader.
In addition, the client has the full control of his funds and is always able to stop the investment at any time by requesting to be disconnected from a certain trader.
In light of the above the Company struggles to find any solid evidence that leads us to believe that any wrong doing was performed from part of the Company and/or its systems.

I was able to withdraw via Neteller without issues so I left essentially with my original deposit balance. Good riddance.
I traded with Hotforex and never had any problem getting paid with Skrill… usually in 24 hours… here a screenshot of my client area with few thousands $ in withdrawal = hotforex-multiple-withdrawals - Free & Detailed Image Hosting
Good job! What pairs are you trading and what strategy do you use? Thanks
yeah there are no hassle in withdrawing from this broker, on a positive note its alway less than 48 hours. I usually do my withdrawals on a monday
Too good and too many feedbacks, high-possibility that they made up.
I think Hotforex is fair broker, you only need to be careful about the so called supercharged Bonus. I had a friend whom they gave 100% deposit bonus, only for the bonus to be removed alongside the profits he had made. On another case, I’ve heard some traders claiming they were able to withdraw the bonuses alongside the profits. I don’t know the truth though!
I never take bonus. Because when you will withdraw anyway it will be removed from your account. OK maybe the only bonus useful is the one that adds a bit w
