I can not admire this broker . Execution on Real trade is too slow It is all different from Demo trade . You will know it If you experience Real trade once . Scalping trade is hardly possible . It cost much to remit the fund by the wire transfer .

The withdrawal speed is very fast and I received my money within 1 hour only after I made a request to them. That was so amazing!

The trouble with Saxobank is that you can never set stop losses within 20 pips of the current price. This means that you usually have to risk more than you expect to make on each trade. Also, it makes it hard to lock in profits and let a winning trade ride. As a newbie, I didn't see a problem with this, but now I realize it's a recipe for disaster. Other problems include the fact that you have to set up your charts and indicators FROM SCRATCH every time you log in (frustrating and time consuming), and the spreads are very wide for most currency pairs. Too often has Meta trader told me that I should have easily hit my take profit price, only to discover that the price according to Saxobank has missed by a few pips then reversed for a loss.

I start trading with Saxo for about 3 weeks back or so and my experience was horrible as I ended up losing about $ 500 in 3 days time. First and the foremost thing there customer service is horrible they just call you and pester you to deposit funds. Once you have deposited funds they stop calling you and stop responding to your calls. Second thing there trading signals are completely wrong and they also you charge you for it without notifying you. So take my advice if you want to save your money don't trade with them

I dont usually give reviews to brokers but i will now with Saxo as their support was excellent when i needed help with some documents. Proffesionalism is the key factor for me when i rate services.

I just raised some issue with them and was promised that programmers will look into it, just curious to see how prompt will they react in order to fix it.

Worst customer service! I don't like their platform because its too basic! I won't learn something new from them!

Too big spreads on mini account and on normal account as well. Difficult to set up stop loss and take profit, takes several clicks, and sometimes if you adjust stop loss/take profit, they "debit" your account for it.
