Pros of Trading with InstaForex

The main strengths of InstaForex are as follows:

  • Competitive swaps. InstaForex was the first to introduce the system of equal swaps for BUY and SELL. Thus сustomers of the company pay no extra money for leaving open positions at the end of the day.


Slow execution of withdrawal requests can be regarded as a disadvantage. This is not to say it happens on a regular basis but some clients complain of that.

InstaForex Reviews

Pas666: I’ve been trading on the platform for three years. I can’t say everything is perfect but in general I am pleased with the broker.

Oleg: Of course, it’s pleasant to trade with no spread but withdrawals could have been faster. It’s upsetting to realize someone is shamelessly using the money you honestly earned.

Agressor111: I must give credit to customer service for their expertise and efficiency.

Polinka: Maybe today is a bad day (I’ve been trading here for 3 weeks) but the platform is terribly slow. I had to wait for 10 minutes. In one word it’s a nightmare, “if nothing changes, I will look for alternative”.


InstaForex holds itself out as a platform for beginner traders. Powerful analytical tools, no spread, equal swaps and segregated accounts are of great importance for comfortable trading. But traders start to realize how necessary and essential these tools are only after gaining some experience.

It is of primary importance for beginner traders to get support, to be able to receive quick and full answer to any question. In this respect InstaForex is above praise.

  4. Instaforex has Cool execution than others brokers, they are a very big company and best broker in Asia so their execution is quite good. Their forex quotes are fair and pending orders are executed with no slippage…

  5. I am very satisfied with my trading with InstaForex. I have learnt a lot from its educational material for free and all analysis and forecasts they publish are very accurate. Trading conditions are good, especially minimum deposit of $1. Totally recommended.

  6. I’ve been with Instaforex since 2012, and I have different types of accounts with them. So, I am happy to say that all my accounts are still active. Instaforex has instant execution of orders and it’s the reason why I chose them. Also, InstaForex offers many lessons to get familiar with Forex trade and provides many different system of making profit. In addition, their Customer Service is friendly and professional because they always reply my emails very quickly. I have earned a lot of money trading as an investor in the PAMM system and I have never had any problems with my withdrawals. At the moment, I am planning to submit my application for the partnership program and I hope my application will be approved immediately. I am confident to say that Instaforex is the only broker that gives opportunities to newbie to earn through their Bonus programs. You must try this broker!!!

  7. I recommend InstaForex, they are better than other Forex Brokers that has a lot of problems related to their systems. With Instaforex, I finally see how profitable are my trades. In other brokers, I lost continuously because those brokers modified my trades and then told me a lot of lies. But InstaForex is very secure, serious and totally transparent with all services provided. InstaForex offers professional system that help you train yourself or in case you do not want to risk a big amount of money. Spreads are really low and don’t have problems when I want to withdraw my earnings.

  8. Instaforex is a good broker, I’ve been trading on the platform for three years. I can’t say everything is perfect but in general I am pleased with the broker because I never had any issues with them. They have by far the BEST customer service out there. Every time, I had problem, the customer support at InstaForex immediately solved my issues whenever I have.

  9. Well to my mind, InstaForex offers quite good conditions for trading. I think that to this day InstaForex Company is the best one by all parameters.I’m a participant of InstaForex education projects, I actively communicate with other traders on MT5.com forum.Aside from this, InstaForex provides technical safety at bank level – my account is secured and I can be sure that nobody uses my funds or personal data. So I’m very satisfied with this broker!

  10. The Finance Department instantly approves my withdrawal request when I requested to take my money amounting to $154 yesterday through Megatransfer and the processing fee was very reasonable. Got my money an hour ago and I was very thankful because it’s my first time to withdraw my earnings. This company is very impressive, I read some negative reviews on the forum and I really admired them because until now, this company operates their business despite of the black propaganda thrown at them a few years back. I also found out that this company accepts clients who doesn’t have money to invest. They’re the one who will deposit for the client to be able to starts trading. The client will lose nothing. The No Deposit bonus offered by this company is still running and I saw it on their Facebook page.

  11. I think Instaforex is a reliable and well- managed broker. I have been involved in forex life since I was 25 years old and currently it was 3 years with their platform. Trading on MT4 platform is nice, no delay and orders are executed properly! I worked on Insta Standard and Insta Eurica account and so far it run well and I don’t face any scam or fraud issues with them. InstaWallet is really useful, I certainly used that feature to direct transfer fund from one account to another account. To be real, I actually faced losses so many time. I struggled and did so many improvement on the trading strategy. Currently, monthly trading performance was good which is between 70% – 89% profit trades. I also managed to earn $200 – $400 for weekly income. Thanks so much Instaforex !

  12. With Instaforex, it’s possible to expand the profits during news time because the spreads remain consistent and reasonable. News trading is completely safe. Two weeks ago, I added some funds in my account thru NETELLER. The money was worth $900 and it was credited after several hours. Also the reason why I funded my account again is that I want to hold position for 3 days or more. It’s my first time but am not afraid of doing it because I knew Instaforex is an honest broker.

  13. I trade with InstaForex for more then one year with a Standard.Insta account. At first I used the demo account and after 10 days I opened a live account. I trade on the MetaTrader 5 platform and on Mobile Platform. Both work with fast execution of trades and real time prices. For deposit and withdraw I use Skrill and ePayments. It takes from 5 hours up to 2 working days to make a withdraw, but I never had hidden commissions as I encountered with other brokers. My first deposit was 300$, and I managed to make the first two months of trading 1200$ profit. After 1 year I can say that my profit is 1200-1500$ a month. I use also Autochartist and one EA for the pairs EUR/USD, USD/CHF, GBP/EUR, USD/JPY. I also trade Gold and Silver, shares, and commodities. When I made the first deposit I applied also for 50% welcome bonus, and now I have 50% bonus for each new deposit I make. The support team is friendly and helpful.

  14. A friend recommended InstaForex to me, and now I trade with them for 5 months. Till now is the best broker I found on the market. They have good trading conditions, the spread and platform MT4 are very stable during volatility times. I have a Insta.Standar account in USD currency and I trade with them from major pairs EUR/USD GBP/EUR, USD/CHF, Gold, Silver, Crude Oil, Bitcoin and exotic pairs USD/DKK, USD/NOK. After I made my first deposit 500$ I applied for 50% welcome bonus which give me 50% bonus for each new deposit I made. To deposit and withdraw I use ePayments system and I never had problems. Their support team is really nice. I had some problems with some opened positions which they closed… actually the server shut down and I lost money 185$ they restore my positions and I had also my money in my account. So, the broker is honest and is not manipulating either the prices on the market. I will open soon a PAMM account to invest also. I recommend also the broker!

  15. I opened a live account with Instaforex last August 2017 and I am extremely happy with the results so far. A friend of mine suggested this broker because he was very comfortable trading with them. I was concerned about putting money however since I trust my friend and he is a long time client of Instaforex, I decided to try them. The funds I deposited on 16 Aug has since returned 20% after 2 months! I am extremely pleased with their customer support and the time it takes to get things solved quickly. Everytime I have a question they are more than eager to assist. Average spread seems to be around 0.7 pips for EUR/USD, which is really good. I trade daily time frame so I don’t experience much problems opening/closing trades (sometimes a few seconds on the change of day), nothing major. Besides that the spread is low, the execution also is truly very fast, and no requotes (not even on the big ones)! So overall it has been a positive and rewarding experience.
