Trader Education

“There is a basic trader education section, traders have access to education materials mostly after registering on the website.”

The Trading Academy on the FXGM’s website is very scanty and contains very little training materials. The training is limited to the glossary and a few web pages describing CFD, leverage, forex history and a few terms.

Once registered you will have access to the PROfit platform ebook which is a user guide.

You will also gain access to 7 beginner and advanced educational videos on the following:

We couldn’t find any additional education materials on the broker’s website, however, after contacting the broker, we received an example to one of their webinars content about CFDs and Vanilla Options (which is available to users after signing up) and it was in-depth and sufficient.

Trading Experience

“FXGM’s services are best for intermediate traders, who are able to incorporate technical analysis and market research from Trading Central into their trading styles.”

Due its simplistic style the WebPROfit app is mostly suitable for beginners. While the charting package is sufficient for beginners and intermediate traders. We would not really suggest that this platform suits pros.

Generally their services are best suited for mid-level traders who use simple trading styles. Traders who prefer to use simple indicators, signals and charts are likely to appreciate FXGM services.

Excelente Broker

Me han recomendado mucho a FXGM ya que tengo conocidos que operan con el y durante el tiempo que llevan con él, y tienen excelentes opiniones de FXGM. Además, han tenido muy buenas ganancias. Pero por sobre todo me interesar probar FXGM es porque me han dicho que es confiable y seguro. Podría invertir sin preocupaciones de que no me engañarán y no le darán mal uso a mi dinero
