SimpleFX’s Customer Reviews

“Very convenient app, with good UX. I’m interested in investing in about two years and started with SimpleFX half a year ago. Mostly I like regular promos, new symbols, and good cash backs. I started with Forex and then went into oil, metals, and crypto.”

“I never had any issue with trading and withdrawals. Their support is helpful when you have questions. They are constantly trying to involve themselves selves which is a big plus! I give this broker a 5-star rating. Thanks!”

  • AXCESS, Netherlands (Apr 28, 2019)

“I’ve been using SimpleFX for well over two years. At first, I was leery about going with an FX broker who allowed me to set up an account with only an email address and fund with Bitcoin. No lengthy application/verification period, nothing. But I gave them the benefit of the doubt and signed on. To cut to the chase, I’ve gotten FAR better service, order execution, funding/withdrawal reliability/speed and performance from them than ANY conventional broker I’ve ever used. I’ve been in FX for well over 12+ years. I’ve used many others, and EVERY single one of them has given me problems or issues. Not SimpleFX. Not one single time. I’ve recommended dozens of traders to them since then, and every single one is happy.

They’ve fully earned my trust and I hope they keep up the excellent work.”

  • Bizwebtrader, Andalusia, Spain (Aug 16, 2018)

“Good Broker. The previous negative reviews were from when their liquidity provided failed to update their quotes when Bitcoin Cash crashed 50% so they sold Bitcoin Cash at nearly double the current price. The LP didn’t honor the trades (obviously) and neither did SimpleFX. The Swap was charged at 0:00 GMT for the longest time but the recently changed it. I withdrew several thousand several times and it got paid within several hours every time (even on weekends). Pretty good overall. Just don’t use their app. It has one-click trading by default and I accidentally closed a few trades more than once.”

  • Shyla, New York, USA (Jul 30, 2018)

“It’s a good broker if you want to trade using Bitcoins as an electronic wallet. I’ve been using it in a demo and real for about a year and I like it. The spread on BTCUSD is way too high, but it’s ok since I do not trade that pair. I only use Bitcoin for deposit/withdrawal. Sometimes it seems volume is lower when comparing SimpleFX with bigger brokers, so the price won’t move as much as it should. In short: a good broker for Bitcoin users. If you want to trade using non-crypto money them I believe there are better brokers out there.”
