SFX Markets Reseña
About the company:
SFX Markets was founded in 2011. Today, the company offers 30 currency pairs and precious metals for trading on a popular MT4 platform.
SFX Markets’ clients can choose between order execution through STP and ECN, fixed and floating spreads and are offered several trading platforms.
According to information posted on its website, SFX Markets processes clients’ transactions using the Straight through Processing (STP) technology.
SFX Markets is a trading name of SFX Global Ltd., which is registered as the International Business Company (IBC) in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.
Companies in this offshore jurisdiction operate under loose conditions. They are not required to keep clients’ funds on segregated bank accounts and be members of the investor compensation program. The registration procedure is simplified and inexpensive with non-strict supervision. That is why we recommend that traders invest in companies that are regulated more stringently. Check out other brokers in our ranking.
Still, the company claims that it keeps clients' money on segregated accounts and receives liquidity directly from the largest market makers such as Barclays and BNP Paribas with all financial transactions undergoing a strict internal audit.
Moreover, the broker offers Islamic accounts and a unique social investment service called SFX Trade Leaders. It is available for Invest.TL accounts and involves copying of successful traders’ deals. Flexible commission is one of its main features. Traders can set conditions for certain groups of investors.
Fixed spreads offered by SFX Markets are 2.5 pips, higher than average of 2 pips with other brokers. Trading costs for ECN accounts are more than 1.5 pips (with a difference of 1 pip and a commission of $5 for a standard lot), which is also above the average in the market.
Traders can open the following account types: MICRO, ECN ISLAMIC, ECN-PRO, SFX Trade Leaders, INVEST.TL, and FIX API.
