I have used Forex.com for about 1.5 years. No complaints. I usually use their Java platform. And I’ll use their Forex Mobile platform when I need to check rates or cancel orders from my cell phone.
I’ve never had a trade not get executed. I’ve never had a problem logging in, during trading hours. I think they take it down on the weekends sometimes for maintenance.
Their commentary is insighfull. And their technical analysis is sound (not perfect) but sound.
Somebody previously said they felt “pressured” to open a live account. During my “MANY” demo periods, I’ve never felt pressured 1x. And I would expect any company, in any business to call on you, if they have evidence you have opened a demo using their product or service.
Their customer service/tech support is good. When testing different trading strats, sometimes I’ve wiped out my demo account. With a couple clicks of the mouse I’m chatting with one of their customer service reps, and they are more than willing to reset the demo account.
And I’ve never had any bandwith or crashing problems with their Java platform like the guy from Indonesia said. (maybe his location has something to do with that?)
Sometimes, I’ll encounter hangups with their charting package. Where I’ll switch to a time frame, and the chart just “wigs out” on me. But that is probably the only negative with this company.
Botton line, imho if you are looking for a good broker, Forex.com would be a sound choice.
