Products, Spread and Commissions

When we logged in the mini account we opened for testing with MT4, we found around 45 products to trade. Most of them were forex pairs. In addition there was gold, silver and some indicies. Spreads can be considered as medium high. We encountered spreads of 2.7 pips for EURUSD , 2.7 pips for GBPUSD and 2.8 pips for USDJPY in the late London session. Do not be fooled by the fact that spreads are higher than ECN accounts. It is because ECN accounts charges commissions but there are no commissions on this account. Below you can find all products and spread rates.

Customer Service

The most striking feature of USGFX customer service is that they assign a free account manager to everyone. This manager always supports you in all matters like opening an account or sending your documents. You have the chance to reach your account manager rapidly. However, most account managers’ service language is English, so you may not have the chance to get this cool service in your own native language. Other representatives are available 24 hours a day via email, phone or online chat. It has offices in most financial centers in Asia including Sydney, Auckland, Hong Kong and Shanghai.

Conclusion

USGFX is an Australian company founded 10 years ago, aiming to provide special services to its customers. At first glance, free training content, copy trade, trading clubs and dedicated customer service are important services. However, the minimum deposit required was slightly higher than we expected. Looking at the product range, the mini account had 45-50 tradable products, which is far behind its competitors. Spreads are medium-high but no extra commissions. You can consider registering a demo account and experience the trading conditions yourself, since company supports free demo accounts.
