Feedback from traders
We managed to find both positive and negative reviews about the broker:
"Sterling Gent Trading Ltd has long been on the market, and I've been working with it for a couple of years. As for the company's integrity, the broker withdraws money on a regular basis. As for the execution of transactions, there are some minor problems. In other companies, you can face more important challenges."
"I don't think Sterling Gent Trading Ltd is engaged in an unfair practice. The broken has been operating since 2006 and it is licensed. If things were different, the company would have ceased to exist long ago."
"Extremely unreliable broker. Nothing but talk. Concealed fraud."
"They raise money over several months, then empty your account and everything starts over again. This is a scam!!!"
