Had an account for 3 months in Hantec Markets really makes me feel confident that this broker not a broker for beginner. Last year I chose to join and trading here because I read some reviews from traders that said this broker provide best trading platform and their mobile application easy to operate. There are two trading platforms to choose from – MetaTrader 4 and Currenex. Hantec Markets provides a variety of financial instruments including 50 currency pairs, gold, silver, and CFDs. Their trading system is complete and easy to use, but I am a beginner and only have limited capital. While Hantec Markets set a fairly large deposit of $ 1000 in each trading. I feel that the value is very big, as the profit they give is only about 20%. I think I should look for another broker that gives beginner the opportunity to start trading success even with small capital.

I trade with Hantec for some months now but the past month I started to have delays in execution and I tried to reach for the support team, they just put me on hold for ever. I have a standard account with a first deposit of 1000$. I managed to double my initial deposit within 3 months. I withdraw 500$ and after that I started to have problems with the MT4 for Mobile. My trading involves major pairs EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/CAD, USD/JPY. If they will fix their problems with the platform and severs maybe the broker can be trusted otherwise it looks like quote manipulation.

I currently trading with Hantec Markets in a standard account by depositing $1000. Their prices and execution are delays from the real market. I have tried my scalping strategies due to slippage. Till now I have trade 30 lots in the different pairs, which make me $$125 lose. I have customized the MT4 platform by setting FX asset manager, but it also failed to work. The worst things are that Hantec Markets charged me any withdrawal via bank transfer. So be aware of Hantec Markets.

I have use this broker for 2 months on and off, although not too long but I have experienced lots of frustrated things, from poor connectivity, frequent trade timeout, etc. Those I could still take... but lately they're starting to really frustrate me. I'm used to placing buy/sell stop orders during news releases but there were times that my orders were automatically cancelled which led me to decide to closed my account. My ECN account to Hantec Markets is 9501238. Last week, during normal trading time I placed a market order buy-in gold at 1300, s/t at 1296, when the market went down and it triggered my S/L which was 1294 instead of 1296! I screened copy the market price to be sure and I was sure that time it has not reach 1294 yet. It was a slippage! But what annoyed me is that it happened again thrice that day with an average of 200 points away with my Stoploss. I emailed the support along with my proof but they just replied 4 days after and said that things were normal in trading and it is part of an automatic 'slippage control' procedure.. I decided to request a withdrawal but I was being charged $1.57 per 0.14 Lot of withdrawal. I think we should be able to do more than to write a review against these abusive and unethical brokers..., for now me and maybe some traders who read this review will stay away from this broker.

Joining Hantec markets is a terrible experience and I’m trading with this broker for less than 6 months only. At first I thought that I can generate more profit with them but they surprised when I notice they have set a commission without proper announcement. Along my journey, I also found that trading platform is work well and it was hard to find the settings. I think it is better if they could simplify and locate the tools and importance buttons of SL and TP at the right location and definitely will ease all activities. Deposit transaction does not give you headache but when it comes with withdrawal, it will make you headache because it takes 5 days for them to approve my withdrawal request just for 100 USD via AirPlus. Overall this broker cannot be trust and their service is terrible to me.

Until now, my affiliate trading account is still not accessible. Already provided everything, even the close-up photo of my documents. The Chat Support was very useless, every time I contacted, they asked unnecessary questions and leave me unattended for about 15-20 minutes. My account was disabled after I decided to withdraw some of my profits from the trading commissions, amounting to 381.02 USD. First, I thought everything was okay, until they kept asking a lot of documents to prove my identity. I sent the scanned copy of all my documents to able able to get the money, but nothing happened, after 5 days of sending my documents again and again, my account was not active anymore. I have a lot of clients here in my country, and what would they say if they will know my situation? The reliability of this company will be questioned. So, I am pleading to this company to activate my trading account, because many of my clients would be affected. Besides, I never violate the rules! I am trading with them since 2013 and am using the same trading method again and again.

I have 2 accounts with this broker, one in dollar and one in EUR,I have been with them about a year and a half , and I never had a problem with them, the manager of my account has helped me a lot, Always kind and ready to help or analyse any situation that may come up. I have bonuses every time I deposit and the Target Points starts again, I made some withdrawals and they processed regularly, when I loose money I know I lost it because of my trading decision so I study more not to make the same mistake again, the only thing I thing is not that goodwith them are swapping charges because they are too high, if you choose to keep a deal open for a month or 2 for example, you will pay about 40-50 dólar. In general I have no serious complaints about this broker.

In the past, I had terrible experience with Hantec Markets when I traded with this broker. First, the demo and real feed prices, I couldn't trade a day in real account due to slippage. It's a kind of cheating. Second, this broker charged me 25$ because of a "Dormant Fee" without a proper notification. They said they had already sent an email but I didn't receive. Also, they charged me 60$ for a withdrawal! Next, their customer service is very bad, I waited a lot of time to see answer. I spoke with customer representative about bonus terms and they did not explain me bonus terms and conditions. They only told me that bonus should be added to balance. I opened 2 lots and follow equity and saw that there is enough money. Then, I saw that my account is zero. When I asked them, they told me that the bonus is not including balance. Hence, their ads are fake, and they lie about bonus. I’m so upset with this broker, so I can't recommend anyone to trade with Hantec Market.

A very good trading experience with this company. All services it provides are good, especially copy of trades from experienced traders. Thanks to it, I could get good earnings while I learnt about aspects of forex market. Commissions charged for using this system are not high, every trader sets different commissions and you can choose any trader you like. Also, registering a trading account just takes a few minutes and all passwords were sent to my email in 5 minutes. They are very organized and their reps are very helpful and nice, they are always ready to help me. My experience with its trading platform was good too. It doesn't freeze and works fluently even in the release of economic news. Totally recommended it.

Please be very very careful while choosing a broker. Hantec market was the worst I have ever joined with. I gave them a try the services they had. Opening a live account is like pulling a teeth. I sent them a lot of docs but they still didnt verified it until I someone from the broker helped me and it was my account manager named Malio, at first I was making good trades with her help but after 2 weeks I noticed that something is wrong. Every time I wanted to place an order if it was to my advantage it would freeze up or give me the trade when it was too late. My . Pay pal did not charge me for sending opening funds but Hantec market turned the percentage on me which is 150.76. From 2 to 10 pips slippage on non news time and always on S/L never on T/P. Please be aware that every positive review you see here are by someone representing the broker.
