IronFX is a forex & CFD broker with branches based in Australia, the UK, Cyprus and South Africa, as well as an offshore entity registered in Bermuda. With the exception of the offshore entity, all the local branches of IronFX are regulated by the respective financial regulators in the countries they are based in.
As usual with forex brokers, new clients will generally be signed up with the entity of the broker that is based in the trader’s own jurisdiction. For example, traders based in an EU/EEA country will be assigned to IronFX’s branch in Cyprus, and Australian traders will be assigned to the ASIC-regulated branch. As a consequence of this, leverage for these traders will be limited to maximum of 1:30 for even the most liquid currency pairs, in accordance with regulations in the EU and Australia.
With IronFX, however, a way to get around these regulations is to instead try to sign up with the unregulated entity of the broker based in Bermuda. This can be done either by accessing IronFX.com directly, while verifying that this indeed is the site of the Bermuda-registered branch, or by requesting customer support to make the change.
Under the Bermuda-based branch, traders with IronFX can enjoy leverage all the way up to 1:1,000 on their trades. Meanwhile, the branch based in South Africa (ironfx.com/za) allows for up to 1:500 in leverage.
The instruments that can be traded on IronFX includes a wide selection of everything from stocks of US and European companies, to more than 80 foreign currency pairs, and CFDs on index futures, spot indices, and a range of commodities. Among the assets we are missing, however, are cryptocurrencies, which for some reason are not offered by IronFX.
All of the instruments offered by IronFX can be traded on the classic MetaTrader 4 (MT4) platform, which the broker offers both in the standard downloadable version for Windows computers, as well as in a web-based version, and as apps for Apple and Android mobile devices.
In terms of the account types traders can choose from, IronFX has a pretty standard line-up consisting of one ECN-type account (Zero Fixed) with commissions but tight spreads, and three different STP-style accounts (Standard, Premium, and VIP) with no commission but with wider spreads.
For traders who choose the Zero Fixed ECN account, spreads can go as low as 0.0 pips on the popular EUR/USD forex pair. Meanwhile, floating spreads on the VIP STP account starts from 0.5 pips for the same pair, which is also a pretty good offering in our view.
All trading accounts can be funded through all the usual payment methods, including e-wallets like Skrill, Neteller, FasaPay, and DotPay. In addition, bank transfers and card deposits (Visa, MasterCard, UnionPay) are of course also available as usual. At the time of this writing, however, cryptocurrency deposits are unfortunately not accepted by IronFX.
Fortunately for clients, IronFX’s customer service is easily accessible via the live chat function on the broker’s website. In addition, the broker also offers support via phone, open 24 hours a day on all trading days, which is something we believe is always a good thing.
Finally, we believe it’s clear that IronFX is a player that knows the forex brokerage industry well, having been around since all the way back in 2010. Further, we are also fairly satisfied with this broker’s wide selection of trading instruments, although some traders may miss the chance to trade crypto CFDs. Lastly, the broker is also fully regulated in several reliable jurisdictions, which is always a good sign.
Great choice of account types! But add Bitcoin already, please... it is about time...
Not impressed at all. The broker is simply the average broker and lacks the refinement that the big brokers have. I can see that IronFX has improved over the years, but it is still coming up short. The best part of the entire service is the academy which has a lot of materials that new traders could take advantage of. Still, the trading conditions are just okay, as well as the trading platforms. In fact, the proprietary trading platform of the broker has a lot of improvements to make.
VIP Room is something that I like here the most. A lot of perks are opened due to it.
My goodness, I received my funds the same day I placed the withdrawal inquiry. I have never experienced such a speedy withdrawal process. Nice.
IronFX's services are alright, but it feels like they could improve the trading conditions a bit further.
I think Ironfx's promotion system is one of the most thought through in the market, because they do not just provide a number of useful bonuses to increase your market activity, but also give you the opportunity to participate in the trading tournaments. And tournaments are great for improving your trading skills first and foremost. Competition brings everything to flourish.
So far, I have had a very good experience with trading with this broker.
I haven't used all of the features of Ironfx but the ones that I have, were great. I especially liked the VIP room service. For depositing a fee of $250 you have the ability to get the forecasts for currency pairs and take part in the discussion of those forecasts. How cool is that?!
And if you deposit more, you will unlock forecasts for more and more instruments. I presume it's a unique feature of the broker. At least I haven't seen anything similar to this.
I have been trading with them for three months now, and it was long enough time to objectively assess and share this positive IronFx review. I will try to be objective and provide some downsides of the broker, but honestly, I couldn't find any. On the other hand, I have many things to praise IronFx. I am amazed by the processing speed of the withdrawals, there are many payment methods. There is a quite long list of account types, which makes it easy to find the best match for any type of strategy. As for the educational resources I think their Academy is one of the best out there. I appreciate that they have equally provided materials for both beginners and more experienced traders. Finally, IronFx with its low depo requirement and attractive bonuses is quite a welcoming broker.
Even though they are not at the top of my list yet, they are certinlaiy going up in my book of good brokers.
Maybe it's cuz because I havent spent a lot of time on their platform, I am just getting started, but it looks like I can get used to this place!
I like that by opening an account with ironfx I got more than just trading conditions. I got a set of tools and services that make my everyday trading more efficient.
It is an arduous task to find a broker this good. Only a handful of brokers have trading conditions analogous to those here at ironfx.
I am sort of glad that I have run into this platform and tried it a little bit. I am taking things slow, this broker does not scream to put all my money in it. Frankly, it offers really good education and I think I can learn from it.
One of the standout features of IronFX is the regular webinars conducted by industry experts. The interactive nature allows participants to ask questions, seek clarification, and engage in discussions. I like it.
I think this broker is unrivaled in terms of education and analytics provided. Not quite satisfied with the overall number of assets but if you're a beginner trader then Ironfx is your obvious choice.
Top broker amongst all others I traded with in my life. I assess it from the point of user-friendliness and client-orientedness. They are certainly leaders in my personal list according to these variables.
They have has a pretty robust reading environment and solid trading conditions to follow up. I would enjoy more in-depth analytics but what the broker provides is more than enough.
If treat this brokerage company objectively and unbiasedly, I can conclude it's a decent one. It's not free of any downsides, because apparently all companies have such ones. However, estimating strictly instruments for trading, environment, infrastructure - overall quality is pretty high. I'm glad to be a part of such an immense community of traders who daily work hard to bring home the bacon.
I pretty much like IronFX for the opportunity to work on various financial markets. Company provides nice software, many assets and a perfect client support service. The only thing I would mention is the design of official website. I guess it could be a little more user-friendly, but that is my personal opinion and it can be subjective.
Ironfx is one of those forex brokers that you want to stay with. It offers not just an attractive trading environment, but also the atmosphere of constant development via its comprehensive education section.
In my experience, I have used IronFX for an extended period and can attest to its outstanding performance. The interface is user-friendly with vast tools available. Their execution speed surpasses expectations significantly, with little or no slippage.
This broker has gone way beyond a regular fx broker with a standard bonus system for beginners. It implemented the tournament scheme with big cash prizes for leaders of the scoreboard. Great motivator for competitive traders to use Ironfx.
Solid broker offering reliable trading conditions, including tight spreads and diverse CFDs. The platform is easy to use and customer service is prompt and helpful.
It seems to me that in their feedback and reviews IronFX customers and other traders do not pay much attention to the benefits of trading education. I am not talking about individual courses or organizations involved in educating traders but about the educational program that IronFX provides. This education is extremely useful for beginners and may be of interest to experienced traders who can see a different perspective on the processes occurring in the markets.
Nice leverage level and set of platforms available. With the true ECN execution I think I will finally manage to squeeze some juice out of the market.
My experience with the broker is rather positive and it is already reflected in the percentage of my profitable trades. I see that I really trade much better at this place.
I am a dedicated follower and a reader of their daily market analysis. I like them as much as their youtube video inventory, I also listen to them on full-blast everyday. They can be really eye opening and can help you look into areas in the market where you wouldn't usually look at. Quite inspirational.
In case you didn't know, IronFX has a youtube channel with daily brief analytics. I recommend it as I use it myself. It helps me to get my thoughts together at the beginning of the day, and it does not take much time. That's what I like about this broker! It takes excellent care of customers. Even if it is just a little, but it works. And care for customers from a brokerage company is rare these days.
I like how this company manages things. Account's conditions are affordable, assets assortiment is pretty large and trading platform is handy.
This broker is the best because it provided me with excellent training opportunities. IronFX has a system for educating traders. It's called IronFX School. I like the regular webinars. And in my spare time I read books, which can be downloaded directly from the official site.
