HFM (formerly known as HotForex) is a brokerage brand under HF Markets (SV) Ltd, an offshore company based out of St. Vincent & the Grenadines. The HF Markets Group has subsidiaries registered in a range of locations for their worldwide operations, with European operations based out Cyprus and regulated by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) under license number 183/12.
With a website offered in 27 languages, HFM is the broker of choice for a truly global audience. The broker offers its services to nationals of all countries, with the usual exception of USA, Canada, Sudan, Syria, and North Korea.
The broker has previously won several awards for its services in areas such as best forex analysis provider, best customer service, and best overall forex broker in regions like South Africa, the Middle East, China, and Western Europe.
The daily market analysis from this broker stands out as particularly good, with the additional weekly live webinars and Q&A sessions offering extra value to traders interested in hearing the perspective of the experts at HFM.
The minimum deposit to start trading with HFM is USD 5, or the equivalent amount in another currency. However, for a deposit of only USD 100, traders will get access to the exclusive HFM ZERO Spread Account. This account offers traders access to very tight spreads directly from the major liquidity providers, without any mark-up added by the broker. The account is instead commission-based, with commissions starting at USD 0.04 per 1K lot.
HFM further offers a wide range of CFD-based instruments for trading, including several cryptocurrencies, forex, precious metals, stock indices, stocks, commodities, and bonds - all with fairly tight spreads on the most popular instruments.
For traders who are lucky enough to be based outside of the EU, leverage with this broker can be very high at up to 1:1,000. EU residents, however, are limited to a 1:30 leverage on their trading accounts.
In terms of trading platforms, HFM offers two main solutions: the popular and reliable MetaTrader 4 for download or the cloud-based MetaTrader 4 Web Terminal, in addition to the same platform for iPhone, iPad, and Android. For more advanced users, the broker also has an option known as the RapidTrader API, developed by Integral, that offers direct market access using the FIX protocol.
Withdrawals are never a problem with HFM and are carried out as you would expect from any reliable broker, with withdrawals normally processed within the same business day. There are no withdrawal fees to withdraw funds to major credit cards, but a USD 5 minimum withdrawal amount applies. A nice extra benefit offered by HFM is the option of withdrawing funds in bitcoin via bitpay or mybitwallet.
Deposits can also be done using major credit cards like Visa and MasterCard, in addition to bitcoin (BTC) or bitcoin cash (BCH), a nice feature some cryptocurrency traders in particular might want to take advantage of.
HFM offers local customer support phone numbers in 10 countries, including major countries like China, Russia, and South Africa. In addition, designated phone numbers and email addresses have been set up for speakers of Arabic, Chinese, and Farsi. Although some past users of HFM have reported difficulties dealing with the customer support of this broker, most customers report a positive experience without any major issues.

Its my pleasure to write a review for hotforex which i am trading for the last two years. It has good trading platform mt4 which offers smooth trade executions. The payment deposits are instant however withdrawing take up to one business day which is acceptable in my opinion. The spreads and other facilities are also good enough to give this broker a try. I am rating them 5 out of 5 for now.
Hotforex is a professional broker, their support staff is very responsive and friendly. I haven't had encountered any major issue with them. They have handful pairs for trading with usually tight spreads on major pairs and average spread on others. The withdrawal is processed within two business days or sometimes even less than that.
Nothing much to add about hotforex, it's a good broker, with good trading conditions. Be sure to get verified and present proper documents, they are strict and thats a good sign. Happy trading everyone.
I am amazed with the services being offered by this broker. Decent trading platform with smooth execution. Many helpful resources too for trader education.
Hotforex is a good broker over all, pretty pleased with services, good spreads on eurusd, and most usd pairs, execution time is really quick and no delays on withdrawals, i have traded with them for almost a year now and i have no complaints.
This broker is really reliable because it's more than 10 years old and features various advanced services, account options and payment methods. In short, this broker has everything for a basic or a professional trader to start making money with Forex.
In my humble opinion Hotforex is a good pick for every new trader. I am also new to them but its around an year worth of trading with them so I believe that the trading environment is good however you need to be patient if you wish to become a successful future trader.
This broker has a good turn around in terms of replying when you generate support tickets and they are also good while processing withdraws. Overall services and the website is unique and user friendly.
Last Thursday i got my 2nd withdrawal of 750usd, processed with no problem. Using skrill as a withdrawal option, I am very pleased with this. Good broker indeed.
This broker suits me completely, the profits are small yet they are very consistent so I am sticking with repeating the process again and again. They have convenient profit withdrawal system. Trading is smooth. They also allow trading on news. I am satisfied 100%.
Smooth, good execution time, with little to complain about, spreads are mostly tight on majors and usd pairs, good number of pairs to choose from. They do offer crypto yes. Fast withdrawals. Good company over all.
Trading with this broker for nearly one year. It almost has every desired assets including bitcoin which is pretty daunting and highly volatile too. I bet it will replace other fiat pairs if traders got the psyche of this digital asset. The spreads are average on this but it moves too fast that spreads, commissions etc can be easily covered in the profits even if you scalp. Trade execution is good so far. There is no problem with my withdrawal as well. They are always on time both execution and withdraws.
Trading for about one year and this broker is pretty genuine. You can find many account options and trading-supported services as VPS. Fast payout in 24 hours for e-wallets as Skrill, Teller, WebMoney. Highly recommended!
A very good broker, they tend to be a bit strict with documents upon registration which I think is reassuring, after verification it was smooth sailing, pretty much straight forward, good execution time and platform stability, I like the reaction time, spreads are manageable over all, and they are tight mostly on majors.
I prefer trading bitcoin/usd pair with Hotforex broker, they charge small spreads plus commission as well on this commodity yet the movement and volatility is too high that you can make good money if you catches the right movement. Trade execution is good at Hotforex trading MT4 and withdrawals are easily processed.
This broker's premium account provide tight spread on majors and fast payment within 24 hours (to Skrill). Reliable broker!
Exceptional broker, nothing to complaint about, good connection and fast execution, decent spread and pretty manageable. Fast withdrawals, almost guaranteed the next working day.
Six months of total experience with this broker. Overall server execution is fine. Low spreads on major pairs while average on the rest. Btc pair has also average spreads however the leverage is good for profit making. Profit payment withdrawal takes up to 24 hours with no extra verification calls for delay. They are good broker for small account holders like me. I recommend trading with this broker.
I have been trading with Hotforex broker for over two yeas. Pretty decent and reliable broker, multiple assets and services, superior services compared with many brokers I've tried.
They have good customer support. if you have a problem, they solve it within short time. Deposit and Withdrawal process is fast.
HFCopy is very good copy trading platform. Has many strategy providers and ability copy different signal providers.
