trading with interactive broker really make you feel good during trading activity which is you can trade very calm without worrying your platform will give you problem like freeze when running the platform in a long period of time, execution slow to take your order instantly, and the spread that too big for to trade. But when trading with interacting broker, I am not facing any of those problems and I can trade normally. So far their transaction for deposit and withdrawal is fast that only need 1-3 hours for deposit and 3-5 hours for withdrawal. Their support is always there for me when I need a guide from them and they are professional in answering my questions. Overall interactive broker can be trusted and one of the reliable broker to me.

I am quite happy with Interactive Brokers. I have opened an account with $5000 about months ago till now everything going smoothly. The best part of this broker is that I got lower than 1 pip spread, which is better than the most of the brokers I am with. Beside this I am able to withdraw my fund within 1 day through Bank wire. I agree Interactive Brokers is the best, honest and professional broker. Strongly recommended to every pro trader.

I have been with Interactive Brokers for 9 months and I think this broker be the best among other brokers I have tried from the past. Interactive Brokers is my second broker. The staff has been prompt, professional and patient with all my questions. They take me a short time to explain exactly how I can make profits. For example, last week, I traded on pair USD/JPY with 350$ when the Asian session is so volatile. However, I also earned some profit with 300$, because their customer supported me by giving me right trend in trading. In addition, I have no issues with withdrawal that I made, because my money always appears in my bank in a couple of hours – 5 hours. Therefore, I feel secured with my money in this company, and I will give full marks to this broker for providing such a good service. Indeed, this broker is a good place both for small and big investors. They are not expensive to trade because the spreads are low and the slippage is minimal. All in all, I highly recommend Interactive Brokers to all traders.

I'm trade in the Forex market since 2009. During this time I replaced the 5 major brokers. Today I trade with Interactive Brokers only, because they have the most favorable conditions and the most honest transaction. Even at a time of high volatility market, Interactive Brokers try to help clients and often reimburse losing trades if the client's account has any defects. In addition, they have low spreads. For me, as an experienced trader it is very convenient.

I came to Forex Club broker since six month. Within this time my first experience with them are excellent and exceptional from others brokers. I like their conditions, zero spread and many tools on their platform. I observed that everything in the cabinet is organized in tabs. So I can monitor all my ins and outs of my account with the updated charts so i can see everything in one place. The platform hasn't any spillage or hang ups even the order execution is fast. I started with minimum deposit 50$ only.I use StartFX platform and traded smell lots on EURUSD pair with Zero spread. In six monts I make 250$ and withdrew $200 via Skrill. I regularly gain this profit. Now I believed forex club is very decent and profitable broker for me.

interactive broker is my current favorite broker since 2 years ago and they still my favorite one. Their services really meet with my trading activity and their spread also using ECN broker as low from 1 pips on EURUSD. Interactive broker have provide much more information about forex at their website and it’s like they have a library for newbie to study about forex trading. I’m kind of person that learn through video and they also provide webinar for study purpose. They also have Traders University that gather all information about trading forex for their client. Their TWS platform also stable to use and the execution also fast enough for me. Deposit and withdrawal transaction also fast and I’m using bank wire for method of payment. So far I can gain profit consistently 10-20 percent (100-200 USD) per month and they approve my withdraw fast within 1 day I can have my money in bank account.

The system is quite slow and unreliable, and very often there are slippages and requotes, plus the spreads are also really high for me around important publications. It often takes a lot of time to open a deal around news. I hate to lose money because of faulty broker’s systems.

I never encountered any issues with this broker and have been introduced about them with one of my friend. Interactive broker is one of the forex broker that I can trust so far and been using their service for more than 1 year. I have made several withdrawal and process was very fast and I never wait for so long to get my money into my bank account. Only less than 2 hours process can be settle and done. Keep it up.

Their TWS platform is excellent and very robust. The main reason IB is one of my favorite brokers is due to the cost of trading. For FX spreads are among the tightest I've ever seen! Not a deal breaker, but it can definitely cost you big time if you have huge blocks at play. . I don't think you will need more than this unless you are trying to get rich quick. :)

I have read all the reviews and I am surprised at the negative experiences here. After traded with this broker for 1 year, I have had excellent (not perfect) service with any inquiry made on trades, commissions, fees, etc. In general, I have had no major problems. Their platform takes some learning time but works fine; their margin rates are the lowest I can find; they need more documentation for their platform and the format is awful. The firm is rated best by Barron's. I can't believe the responses here.
