Infinox is a forex & CFD broker based in the UK and with additional offices in the Bahamas and Mauritius. In the UK, the broker is regulated by the very reputable regulator known as the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). However, this also means that the broker is overseen by the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA), and thus subject to all relevant ESMA rules and regulations.
Infinox can to a large extent be considered a stock CFD broker, with stocks of more than 1,000 companies from around the world available for trading. This includes well-known companies like Apple, Amazon, Alibaba, and Boeing, just to mention a few. In addition, Infinox offers trading in more than 40 forex pairs, a similar number of crypto pairs, various major stock indices, as well as a pretty large selection of commodities, including precious metals.
Once a new trader has signed up with Infinox, he will get the choice between using either MetaTrader 4 (MT4), MetaTrader 5 (MT5) or the broker’s own social trading platform called IX Social. Among these, MT4 and 5 are by far the best-known platforms among independent traders, and are available both as a web-based version and as downloadable desktop versions for Windows computers.
Meanwhile, the broker’s own trading platform IX Social is a modern and well-designed mobile trading platform that meets the needs of most traders. The platform is focused on so-called social trading, where interaction with other traders and copying trades made by others is the focus. This also opens up interesting opportunities for profitable traders to earn an extra income by sharing their trades with others. The platform has an easy-to-use design, but is still advanced enough to fulfill most needs.
In terms of account types, Infinox offers either a standard STP (straight-through processing) or an ECN (electronic communications network) account for individual traders. As usual, the ECN-type of account is more suitable for traders with larger amounts of capital, while the STP account is the better deal for smaller traders and beginners.
Additionally, joint accounts for those trading in partnership with others, and corporate accounts for those trading as a company, are also available from this broker.
It’s worth noting that Infinox offers special “Premium” treatment for customers who deposit at least USD 1,000 into their trading account. And although Premium clients pay the same spreads and commissions as others, they do enjoy certain benefits, such as one-on-one sessions with analysts and access to the IX Premium Telegram channel.
Although the spread on trading instruments changes dynamically with Infinox, a typical spread on the popular EUR/USD currency pair starts from 0.2 pips with the ECN account, depending on market conditions. With the STP account, spreads start from 0.9 pips, but all trades are commission-free.
As usual, spreads are significantly wider than the minimum spreads for less traded instruments.
All trading accounts can be funded with bank wire transfers, major credit & debit cards, and a number of e-wallet services. However, the exact selection here varies depending on the trader’s country, with some countries supporting significantly more online payment services than others.
As a fully regulated UK-based forex broker, Infinox does not accept deposits made via cryptocurrency (except the relatively unknown Traders Coin in some countries). In order to open a trading account, a copy of a passport, driver’s license, or national ID card must also be submitted electronically to the broker for verification.
Infinox’s customer service is available via email, live chat, WhatsApp and local phone numbers in a large number of countries. The support team’s working hours have unfortunately not been disclosed by the broker.
Lastly, we should remind readers that although this forex broker is fully regulated in the UK, its international branches in the Bahamas and Mauritius are only lightly regulated by the governments there. It is therefore a good idea to be careful and only deposit money once you feel confident about this broker.
Spreads on ECN account here are attractive in comparing with STP one. They start from 0.2 pips and it's kinda convenient. Yeah, ECN account also implies commissions, but, nevertheless, it's far more appealing for me. Moreover, there is a cool customer support that is pretty responsive.
Had the only reason to sign up with the broker. It offers 1:1000 leverage on its ECN account. As a rule, brokers offer lower leverage on their ECN accounts. Tighter spreads and higher leverage is a wild mixture for me. I couldn't pass by.
