FX Pro Group Ltd serves as the holding enterprise for FX Pro Financial Services Ltd, FX Pro Global Markets Limited, FX Pro Global Markets MENA Ltd, and FX Pro UK Ltd among others. This company is truly global in every sense the word. It is fully licensed and regulated by the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) of the United Kingdom, The Dubai Financial Services Authority, the Financial Services Board (FSB), the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CYSEC), and the SCB. This licensing and regulation ensures that forex traders are in safe hands at all times. Several of the individual companies under the FX Pro umbrella do not offer CFDs to clients in specific countries and jurisdictions. These are mainly restricted to Canada, the US, and the Islamic Republic of Iran.
FX Pro was founded 12 years ago, in 2006 as a premium-grade forex broker. This FX broker has adopted a customer-centric approach to trading, and it places client needs above those of the company. All in all, FX Pro provides 280+ financial instruments to traders, with contracts for difference spread across 6 asset categories. The most notable elements of this forex broker’s services are its trading platforms, tools and resources. FX Pro is committed to transparent trading practices, fairness, and integrity.
The company takes great pride in delivering superior customer support whenever needed, across multiple channels. Indeed, the quality of this broker shines through with a plethora of UK and international trading awards numbering some four dozen +. Among others, FX Pro received the best Forex provider award at the Investors Chronicle & Financial Times Investment & Wealth Management Awards. But it’s the trading platform, trade executions, and superior customer support that truly resonate with forex traders.
In terms of trading account variety, FX Pro is a cut above the rest. Various account types are available to forex traders, including demo accounts on the cTrader, Metatrader4 and Metatrader5 platforms. These platforms also provide forex traders with real money trading. The FXPro Markets is a proprietary trading platform available to clients at this broker. The trading accounts allow for zero interference (this is no dealing desk), low latency and anonymous trading. Clients can enjoy multiple base currencies such as EUR, USD, CHF, EUR, AUD, GBP, and PLN. Instant trade executions and market executions are available, and all client funds are maintained in segregated accounts.
Another terrific feature of the accounts is there is negative balance protection on all real money trading activity. There are many benefits to the demo accounts as well, including full access to MetaTrader4, MetaTrader5, as well as cTrader. The demo trading account offers substantial leverage of 1:500, and a faux trading balance of £500,000/€500,000.

We contacted customer support to find out about bonuses and promotional offers. According to the customer service professionals, ‘Bonuses are usually used as a way to lock-in customer deposits, and often come with unrealistic conditions. This is not something that we do at FxPro, and it is now also banned by regulators.’
