CMTrading was my 4th broker and I've stuck with them for 4 months now. I am comfortable with their platform, and I love it for its simplicity and usability! Their support is kind and polite. Top notch FREE signals and support

Pros: Great support, free signals, Simple platform

Nadelen: High deposit ($250), no support over the weekend, no USA traders.

it was everything gone wrong for me, i fell fully for their lies, had my broker handle my account for me which made things get worse but i was out there working almost all hours of the day to make sure i stay stable financially in life and all of a sudden +booom . i need cash and they are wasting my time to approve my withdrawal request. At this point i am beginning to get scared and after a while they stopped responding to my emails which became worse, i was going nuts until i was able to come across a company binaryoptionassetrecovery ( they were so helpful and we got back almost all of mu money back. im never going down that binaryoption or forex investment road again.

Pros: none

Nadelen: none
