I ran into Tickmill when I was just a newbie and don't understand a lot of things about Forex. I was still studying a lot about the industry at the time. But I am glad I picked Tickmill. First I opened there a demo account, then a real one, and soon decided to withdraw some money - on trial, would they not deceive you. After that, I continue to trade small positions, and eventually I was able to generate consistent profit albeit small. I withdraw at least $300 per month or so. Never have any problems.

I think Tickmill is one of the best brokers to trade gold among other things. They have great spreads for the instruments and they also apply low commission fees in addition to that. It is also highly recommended for anyone who wants to try scalping because of this. Not to mention the order execution time is very quick which is very important for scalpers. Try out their demo account first if you are unsure. I did that too when I first tried out this broker. But the smooth platform quickly makes me comfortable so I decided to open a live account.

I trade under Tickmill welcome account but guess what, WD process from welcome account is a complete disaster . They ask you to fund the wallet first before you can withdraw profit from welcome account. Then they told you opened welcome account several times and without farther disquisition , They block my account and did n't do anything to whatever I clarify on my behalf. The finances ? Not gotten any! Be careful or just find another broker . It's a fiddle .

Hopefully in the near future I will no longer experience strange incidents when trading at TickMill. Some time ago I noticed that the candles formed on their platform were quite different from other brokers. I hope I don't lose.

I love that they have a low commission fee in addition to the good spread that they offer. This is really good for new traders who want to reduce some trading costs. However, sometimes I feel like the connections are not really good. At first, I thought this is because I have bad internet connections. But after checking, apparantly it's not from me. I wish this could have been better, but I'm still willing to endure it since they have really great customer service. Also, withdrawing sometimes can be a problem as it takes a really long time. For now I will give it 3 stars, but it might changes depending on their performance in the future.

TickMill is ideal broker!!! The trading platform is very good. They also have spreads that can compete with other brokers. The commission is quite low. I really like it!

One of the drawbacks of Tickmill is that the nominal transaction required for either deposit or withdrawal is quite large. So for traders with mediocre capital, of course, it is quite difficult to trade at this broker.

I have been writing to Tickmill for a while now and I keep having the same results. I just think they don't really understand what I'm talking about. So I'll say it again. First of all, I understand that you guys have a policy where the client has to trade at least 1 standard lot per each $€£ 5 of the Deposit Reward collected. However, I'm only requesting to withdraw 20% of my deposit which was rejected many times by your website stating that I have not met the trading requirements. I have been trying to tell them this but I still haven't got an answer yet. This is very furstating. Don't tell me to contacted them again since I already did last month.

5 years of trading with Tickmill now and I am very confident when I say that this broker is one of the best ones in the market. Before Tickmill I was trading with another broker and every time I had a complaint, it was always so stressful just trying to talk to the customer service team. Even then I didn't get any solution to my problems. But not with Tickmill, the team was very supportive and understanding and that is hard to do with me since I complained a lot. With my old broker, they always cut my rebates percentage when clients are hedging or scalping, Tickmill always pays for everything. So I don't have to worry about it.

So I am using a welcome account in Tickmill which I thought was a bargain. I was wrong. Here is the thing, I had some small profit from that account so of course, I want to withdraw it. But they told me if I want to withdraw I need to deposit some money. Now, normal people must realize that this is a red flag, but not me. Since my trading experience was very good during that time, I thought why not? After all, this looks like a good broker I can rely on. But then boom they told you opened a welcome account several times and without further investigation, they block my account and did not listen to whatever I clarified on my behalf. Oh, the fund? yeah forget it, I won't be getting it.

Both order executions and spreads are great here, this is why I stay with Tickmill even after all these years. The spread is quite low and it corresponds with the market conditions, they didn't cheat. As to spread without additional commissions, it is very adequate for them. It is still pretty low even for me. I appreciate them for their honesty towards their clients.

There is still some room to improve but overall I really satisfied with their service. Spread is good and I think they are great for daytraders like me? Withdrawal is also very smooth and I almost had no obstacles. However, I think the withdrawal time is a little bit too long, other brokers managed to do it in a shorter time. But since the money arrived safely I am still pretty happy.

I have account in Tickmill for 1.5 years. So far I feel like they are a really honest broker. What I like most about Tickmill is that they have lower commission fees compared to other brokerages that I have ever tried before. For those who are looking for a serious broker, keep in mind that trust, regulation, transparency, and trading conditions are the most important factors, which Tickmill possessed. Their customer service is also very helpful and professional. They will answer your questions in no time.

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.

Is it safe to trade on Tickmill since it is being regulated by Seychelles?

Rachel Lewis

Taiwan Apr 14 2021

Neil Rampling: It seems safe to use large funds on tickmill, I've seen a list of deposits with a $100,000. In Malaysia, traders also like tickmill since they have a specific account types for large capital traders. for me personally, I'm still trading on tickmill.

Kylie: All of the above forex brokers accept clients from Indonesia. I recommend interactive broker and Saxobank.
This is the challenge faced by many Indonesian traders who have been able to consistently profit from trading and want to develop their accounts. Many brokers are licensed by top regulations, but when Indonesian traders register, they are directed to offshore regulators. That's why I wrote clearly the brokers above, because some of them are not stipulating offshore licenses. Interactive Brokers, Saxobank, Oanda, City Index, Swissquote do not have offshore licenses even when Indonesian traders register with them.

Kylie

Indonesia Dec 10 2020

Ross: do they accept clients from Indonesia? what is the best broker according to your experience? Indeed, Tickmill UK is regulated by the FCA, but it's funny how clients from Indonesia are directed to offshore-regulated tickmill. 

Ross

Neil Rampling: Saxobank, Dukascopy, FXCM, Oanda, Swissquote, Forex.com, City Index, IG, ICmarkets, Vantage FX.

Ross: So, which broker should I use?

Ross

Singapore Dec 1 2020

Neil Rampling: In my opinion, it is not safe for large capital traders because the regulations from the SC (Seychelles) are not 100% safe. There is a more secure Tickmill regulation namely FCA UK, however, Tickmill UK cannot accept clients from outside the UK. Non-British citizens will be directed to the Seychelles-licensed tickmill.

I have a serious problem with them. They keep saying that clients can withdraw profit anytime. But everytime I submit a withdrawal request, it is always super hard. It's as if they don't want me to get my money at all. Or that might be the actual problem.

After a year of working with Tickmill, I realize that this broker is quite a powerful STP broker from experienced major companies. The interbank market access is a highly important moment for me since there is no conflict of interest with the broker. The executions is super quick, I have never experienced delay here.

Leonardo Backer

I open an account here for one of my EA, that is only allowed to be operated only on Tickmill. The problem was my EA worked great on demo, but not so good on live account due to the commissions. I didn't continue due to the low leverage that offered to the clients. Also no crypto...

Don’t know why the registration process is very difficult for me. My 2nd document didn’t accepted by their customer service (for residential area confirmation). The exact document accepted in other brokers without problems.

Is Tickmill really going towards the downhill? I don't know what's the problem but recently many funds just reflected on the accounts after 8 or more days. It's very frustating you know when you really need the funds on your trading account.

Adam Byrne

Tickmill is a good broker so far, but the only I don't like is that sometimes it need more than 8 days for the funds to reflected on my accounts. Mainly reasons is because of the bank.

Connor Seinfield

All in all an honest broker but I am disappointed when I had a legitimate trade issue but the broker put it right down to a slippage loss which I don't fully realized with. Apart from that one issue to report, I find their trading conditions amicable and straightforward.

Logan MacCartney

For my first withdrawal (the withdrawal request was on the identical checking account, from where the deposit was) they asked a document which include my Name, Surname and Bank details like IBAN and Name of the Bank. I send this, and then they asked again, the same thing. I send another, with explanation, where they find the small print on the document, and than they fund my checking account. Not really great experience tbh. So average it is.

I joined Tickmill through a referral program, I thought they will be good. Well, in some aspects they do deliver what they promise they would. But the customer support is hell. The online team is not 24 hours and they can barely do anything when you talk to them. Even after they arrange for a callback, it does not happen on many occasions. Also, they don't have margin calls like any other brokerages, they just wiped out my account without telling me beforehand.

Tabitha Diaz

These are the reasons why I recommend Tickmill to my friends:

1. Great spreads, after all, who doesn't like tight spreads?

2. Customer support is very responsive and they answer very quickly.

3. Fast deposit and withdrawal which is rare to find these days.

4. Commissions are quite low, probably not the best? But still considerably low.

I guess I really have no complain.

Is Tickmill good?

Luke Walker:

Tickmill broker is a group that has several companies under it, namely:
Tickmill UK Ltd - regulated by the UK Financial Conduct Authority (License Number: 717270 and Registered Office: Floors 3, 27 - 32 Old Jewry, London EC2R 8DQ, UK)

Tickmill Europe Ltd - regulated by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (License Number: 278/15 and Registered Office: Kedron 9, Mesa Geitonia, 4004 Limassol, Cyprus)

Tickmill Ltd - regulated by the Financial Services Authority of Seychelles (License Number: SD008 and Registered Office: 3, F28- F29 Eden Plaza, Eden Island, Mahe, Seychelles) and its 100% owned subsidiaries

Procard Global Ltd (Registration Number: 09592225 and Registered Office: Floors 3, 27 - 32 Old Jewry, London EC2R 8DQ, UK)

Tickmill Asia Ltd - regulated by Financial Services Authority of Labuan Malaysia (License Number: MB/18/0028 and Registered Office: Unit B, Lot 49, Floor 1, Block F, Lazenda Warehouse 3, Jalan Ranca-Ranca, 87000 FT Labuan, Malaysia).

Of the five Tickmill-owned companies above, the safest subsidiary is Tickmill UK Ltd which is regulated by FCA UK because FCA UK is a credible regulator. However, Tickmill UK does not accept clients from countries other than the UK.

I personally traded for 6 months at Tickmill SC with a small capital of under $1,000 and the service was satisfactory: small spreads, never requotes, fast deposits and withdrawals (I use Fasapay). However, I don't recommend trading there using large funds (>$5,000) because regulation is less secure.

I wish all brokers follow Tickmill steps. Back in the days when this broker hasn't got their FCA license, I already start trading with them. Even during that time, their quality is remakrable. Which is still amazing and no diffraction in market conditions. I wish all brokers follow their steps, it is so hard to find a good and honest broker nowadays. Now, Tickmill is one of the most trusted brokers I've traded with. They have an honest market execution with no requotes even when the market volatility is really high. It is amazing how they can be very consistent with the quality. On the plus side, my account manager is always there on time even though we are in a different timezone.

I requested a withdrawal in January, and it is May. But I haven't heard anything from it. I wasn't gonna withdraw a lot of money it was only around $1000. I had contacted their customer service again but they keep telling me to wait. For how long? I don't know. It shouldn't be this long.

I was interested in Tickmill because of all the good comments about them. But I soon find out that they are not like what I think they were.

1. Overcomplicating the registration process by not accepting documents.

2. Terrible customer support, took a long time to even reply and ignore my questions.

3. Customer support doesn't explain why they rejected my documents even though any other broker accept them. If they can explain it, I could fix it but they don't.

I am very angry about this.

My journey in the forex market has begun years ago, but to find good brokerages that are actually honest and offer great quality order executions is really hard. I was changing brokers all the time, looking for a place to trade without issues, looking for a place with fast deposits and fast withdrawals, and looking for a place with excellent support quality. A year ago, I stumbled upon Tickmill. I was surprised why can have such a broker with a low commission of only 4$, which is a bargain for me! Since I am a scalper, I need raw spread and low cost, and Tickmill has it! Although sometimes withdrawal can be slow, within 24hr is acceptable. Besides they don't charge a withdrawal fee so it's great.

What I like about Tickmill is that the orders are executed instantly. I prefer forex trading with an advantage on its ECN pro account with a minimum deposit of $ 25. Although the spread is are fluctuating but overall it is still great, at least it didn't get too crazy. This broker even gives me positive slippage to my account which of course I like.

Alvaro Tennant

It is amazing how they can keep the spreads super low. It is very consistent and they are not moving apart too much, even with extra volatility, as a pound has been observed recently. Just recently, the week on USD/JPY started with a gap and I was standing up for sale. The price opened at 40 points with a gap and immediately closed the deal.

I have a group of friends who are all traders and we are very satisfied with the service quality of Tickmill. They are always very nice and professional in the customer service department. But that is not all that makes Tickmill worth my time. In terms of execution quality, they are also very exceptional. That is they offer the tightest spreads in its class, great order execution speeds, and of course positive slippage. They are efficient and definitely second to none. So far, I haven't found anything that I don't like about this broker. Everything is cheff kiss.

So far I have been very satisfied with Thickmill. It's great that they managed to provide a good spread with a low commission only from $4. For me, this is a really good deal because I want to cut my trading costs (I am a scalper). So far I trade with Asic's brokers and almost the commission charged was $7 per round turn.  Support service is quite good and they actually take your inquiry really seriously. So far they haven't been disappointing me yet. The only problem is that sometimes withdrawal can be slow, but it's still within 24hr, so it's quite acceptable. The best part is there is no withdrawal fee at all.

Muoi Solomon

I don't know who needs to hear this, but if you are a scalper and still looking for the best broker, Tickmill may be a good consideration, and here are the reasons.

1. Low latency, your order will be executed with no delays. It is very important for scalpers.

2. Good spreads, perfect for keeping your trading cost low.

3. Low commissions, only $4 so it's lower than most

4. Smooth deposits and withdrawal.

5. Great trading platform.
