Does FXOpens offer bonuses or promotions for new traders at the time?

If not, do they have trading contests happening right now? I have been looking for a trading contest to check out my ability in the forex markets.

If they do offers a trading contest, what kind of tournament do they usually hold?

Is it a demo account contest or a live account contest?

Finally, I have found a goo true ECN broker. Before IC Markets, I have tried several other brokers claiming to be the best ECN broker while in reality they are not, they are also full of scams. IC Markets managed to give me the best spreads and the best order executions. They also have a great live chat support team that is always ready to help me with my problems. They are not perfect, however, they also have several things that I wish they would change. For instance, while they do have great educational features, I don't think it's enough to guide new traders. I think they need to put some team in order to compose better materials. I also think they should have more trading contests as well, preferable using a demo account?

I think they are a really good broker. So far I think they have one of the best spreads in the markets. All deposits and withdrawals also go very smoothly here, so I never actually have any problems. There are several things I'd like to ask tho.

1. Why does the commission fees so high?

2. Will there be any trading contest? Because if there is, I would like to know how and when to apply

3. What is the maximum amount to withdraw?

I recently won a small trading contest from Tickmill and I really grateful for the experience and small gift. But honestly, they are one of the best brokerages I have ever traded with. I have been trading with them since 2018, and since then their quality keep improving for the better. I think this broker is good for scalpers since their order execution speeds are very quick, and they also have tight spreads. Not to mention deposits and withdrawals are very smooth here. I would suggest anyone who wants to test out their trading skills to try the Tickmill trading contest. It's really good for your experience.

As someone who has been trading with FBS for more than two years, here are what I can conclude from this broker


- Good spreads

- Interesting trading contest, I guess they have this almost every year? There is a news year contest to try on.

- It has great copy trading apps, I have been using it for several months (5 months) and had no issues. Although the 100$ bonus has little hard conditions

- They gave no deposit bonus great for practice


- Order executions can sometimes be delayed due to high volatility. Not bad, but can be better.

- Slippage is pretty bad despite they claim to have low latency.

The competition in OctaFX is interesting, so I join this broker. After joining the competition and learning some trading strategies, I finally register and open a real account. Everything works just perfectly, Octafx meets my expectation.

I have been trading with them for about a year, but however, I am still undecided. Sure, they have great features that I actually like and benefit from. But at the same time, there is some stuff I don't like as well. For example, deposits were super smooth, but the withdrawal can be quite a hassle. Customer support was quick to answer, but sometimes their answer is pretty much nonsense. Although there are some officers who actually know about the issue and resolve it quickly. That being said, I still think that IC Market has the best spread in the market. They also have awesome webinar content. I'm not sure about the promo and contest, I don't think they have much of it. But that's probably because they are a member of ASIC.

So, I recently joined a trading contest from Exness. While I didn't win, I managed to get into the grand final which is a great achievement for me. I was stuffed with all sorts of goodies I was very happy. Since then I decided to try trading with Exness. So far they have been a real champ, they have tight spreads, no deposit bonuses every year, a minimum deposit of $1. I notice they also have regular trading contests with amazing prizes to be won, no deposit charges. I think I'll try again soon and see how far I can go this time.

I am very pleased because of their true ECN accounts. It really evolves my trading experience, everything really seamless and feels professional, including deposits and withdrawals. Their trading platform is remarkable and I love how everything is so easy to use. I wonder if they have trading contest?
