gftGlobal Forex Trading commonly known in the Forex market for its excellent customer service and dazzling charts was established way back in 1997. However, the company started online trading only recently in the year 2010. As soon as a professional trader is trying to download a demo platform someone from customer support calls up and asks if he can take him through the platform. The company has a proprietary trading platform Deal Book 360 which is a 20 MB downloadable trading platform which can be used in the company’s mini, standard and demo accounts. They also have DealBook web and DealBook Mobile Version.
GFT does not provide any tutorial on the working of Deal Book 360 or forex trading as such. However, when you register yourself for the trading, customer support service representative takes the clients patiently through the working of the platform and something about the Forex market. They however, do provide some background information about the major financial markets and also provide a glossary. The demonstration of the platform with an account manager is an added advantage as it allows understanding the platform easily which is full of charting analysis drop down menus and many other features which would be difficult to comprehend solo.
They also have mini account for which the minimum deposit required is $250. The minimum deposit required for standar account starts from $25,000. They offer to their clients a customizable dashboard and leverage of 1:400 to trade. They also offer to their customers the option of Meta Trader4 which is the most used and trusted trading platform in the forex market. They also offer to their clients Islamic accounts. Initially they allowed US traders to trade with them. Effective 7t October 2012 they have stopped US traders and transferred all their account to other brokers like Gain Capital.
The review of GFT Forex shows that it is one of the most reliable companies in the Forex market. Most of the reviewers are all praise for the trading platform Deal Book 360. They like its features and the dazzling chart that it has to offer. Their customer support service is also liked and loved by the clients. Their support service is the best in the industry with very prompt response. You can reach them anytime for assistance which is provided very patiently by them. The support is available in many languages in contrast to the website which is available only in English. They have 120 currency pairs to trade in which is the talking point of many reviews. The spread through variable are very tight and the minimum spread is just 0.8 Pips. Many Muslim customers like the fact that they have Islamic accounts for them to trade. A few disadvantages are that they provide only forex as the trading instrument and the leverage on that is just 1:50. Absence of tutorial is also a disadvantage. However, the overall reviews are very positive and the average rating given to the company is 5.6 out of 10.» Sign up now
