Thieves, they stole the entire balance of my wife trading account when she had it with the slippage and wants to close her account. Refusing to mail check to the address on file, or credit back to the credit card that originally money deposited from, refusing to wire transfer the funds to the bank in her name on file, and demanding to see her bank account statement before releasing money!!!. Have you ever heard of that scam before. Oh Ya, she really is going to mail these crooks her bank statement. Something smelling rotten fraud here. Some money laundering scam they want to use her bank statement for. Stay away from this broker, you likely to have your financial picture, even identity stolen and used in their other foreign branches in Australia or U.K. for money laundering using your data.

FXSol/Australia (MT4 Platform) is real robber! Last week they open trade for me with $790 loss. This morning (12/4/2009 Canadian Employment Change, 7AM), trading on news, I closed a position with about $2400 profit, to realize that they closed at same price at which was open ($0 profit). Responce: It was gapped and should not open! Graph shows that price did not gap. During NFP (8:30 AM, 12/3/09) I had a profit of $4345.05 just to realised an hour later that they took my profit - rationale: improper trading profit. When I complained about that, they deactivatedmy account. They also deactivated another account which I did not use for a months!

They are a big scam. Runs like a bucket shop though they're big in size.

I traded with FX Solutions platform, because City Index has bought FXS and offered their platform to City Index traders.

My findings show that they've ripped me off via the following unscrupulous methods:

1. Repeated and frequent slippages that can add up my trading costs by as high as an additional 100 pips more per lot per trade!
2. Even when no slippages occurred, the actual price captured in my statement is often a few pips more than what appeared on the screen when a trade is executed.
3. Their dealers entered my open positions and exited them without my instructions. Initially they denied doing so, but eventually offered to compensate me with a few thousand dollars as settlement, but I didn't accept because they cheated me many folds more.
4. They have dealers to trade against me.
5. They fixed off-market prices by as high 152 pips via Gapping, when at that identical time a check with two other brokers' platforms showed no price gaps at all.
6. They manipulated prices to STOP out trades that have STOP LOSS level set, even as far away as over 100 pips!
7. They manipulated the MACD indicator that traders usually relied upon, to trick them into entering trades in the wrong direction.

Someone from another forum sent me his friend's trading statement also with city Index, and in his own words, this is what he said:

"I think I know what Pierre is saying. I have a friend that I refer to the same company and funds have been removed from his account because he made money. I understand why ppl not recommend Market Makers for good traders. In the next few weeks with his permission i will post his statement to show how the funds was removed. The broker claim it is because they quoted wrongly so they are removing the profits made from"

He actually did send his friend's statements to me. His friend has two FX accounts with this City Index. Both are profitable - one with total winning of USD13K, but USD9K was deducted and the other with a winning of USD26.7K profit and USD25K was deducted!

If they can quote wrongly and deduct winning trades from clients, what if they quoted wrongly in their own favour with clients losing? I'm sure they'll quietly pocket the money of unwarry clients who never check or not meticulous enough in checking their statements.

I pray that they will get their just retribution for all their evil deeds.

From my experience, Fxsolution is the real deal. I opened an account easily, made 25000 dollars with 1500 $, withdrew it all and received my money in 2 days ! Spreads stayed fixed, stops were not hunted ( then again I dont use them a lot ) And if they trade against us like many say, who cares? If you have a good strategy, there is no problem. I will not give more than7 since I dont have more than 2 months experience with them.

Total Scam:

1- High level of slippage.
2- Big rollover or overnight fees.
3- Poor execution if the customer order is not favorable to the company interest. Some times fill out is more than 2 minutes or till you're losing money (even in low demand times).
4- Bad customer service including no product knowledge.
5- Other big issues not to discuss here, but if you want to know more, I'm giving you permission to e-mail me at: leivasold@comcast.net

Overall, they have been a great company. Decent spreads, great customer support, quality trading platform and charts. The only problems I have had is a couple of times when I prepare to make a market order, the platform just makes the order for me without me pushing the submit button. I have read other reviews where other traders have had the same problem, and this only happens with FX Solutions. It does not happen very often but is very annoying when it does. They also have made it impossible to trade the news with limit orders (although most companies are doing this now).

Been a customer for 14 months.. had accounts elsewhere and tried lots of demo platforms, this is the best.. although I only like an older version platform that still has the original GTS charts, I think im the only person in the world that likes them over the accu charts.

By far the best if you reside in the US. Their charts rock (even if they don't look like others out there. Watch their actual tutorials and demo before you judge). Their system actually rocks to (does not look that way, but believe me its less confusing than others out there). They have what you need not other stupid features like the others have. You can customize your account from the platform to trade whatever lot size you want standard, mini, micro and every darn thing in-between...And oh, they don't increase their spreads except something like a september 11 occurs or the market is indeed very very volatile (all brokers will do this to protect their ass)

And if they do increase their spread, you can tell from their charts (just overlay their ask over their bid prices - NO OTHER BROKER DOES THIS)

I had live trading with them for more than 1 year. I got no real problems. Their price charts (accuchart) is precise. Live chatting service is very good, data feed is Ok. I think the only drawback is their GTS which looks really poor. They have limited currency pairs. They introduced the GTS pro which I think is still a lot of noise with no essential improvement.

I have traded with FXSOL longer than any other and still have an account there. I have reduced my principal from $25,000 and over to $10,000 simply because they treat new accounts better than existing accounts. Also they are very very slow to update client information.

When I started I blew out two $10000 accounts within 6 months. I then turned things around and broke even then some and thats when the platform started to freeze, stops were prematurely taken out with price no where near the stop. Now I hear that they are charging interest both ways which I guess is nothing more than a commission. Be very wary of these guys.
