FXCHOICE MARKETS REGULATIONS
Regulation has become a beacon for traders to identify trustworthy brokers, and FXChoice, being under FX Choice Limited, does not fall behind in this regard with their regulation from the International Finances Services Commission Belize (IFSCB).
Indeed, one cannot consider the IFSCB to be one of the more prestigious regulators around, and FXChoice would seemingly benefit from further regulations from more established regulatory authorities. Nevertheless, it’s clear to see that their operations are orderly and responsible, and the fact they’ve successfully facilitated millions of trades from contented customers only goes to reflect that.
Furthermore, they ensure to hold client funds in segregated accounts, away from their corporate accounts. This serves to ascertain FXChoice cannot use client funds for company expenses or any other objective.

PLATFORM AND TOOLS
As it concerns trading platforms, FXChoice offers clients the most popular and, for most, the best forex and CFD-trading platforms to trade on the go – MetaTrader 4 (MT4) and MetaTrader 5 (MT5). Both feature-rich platforms are accessible for desktop users (Windows/ Macintosh) and mobile (Android and IOS) users through the mobile application as well as the website.
MT4 conveniently suits traders of all levels, from novice to advanced traders, particularly because of its user-friendly interface and a wide selection of features needed by experts. Some of these features include an array of technical indicators for chart analysis, automated trading solutions via Expert Advisors (EAs), multiple and simultaneous chart time frames, and so much more.
MT5 is the newer version of the MT4, although it is hasn’t managed to build popularity comparable to its predecessor. Nevertheless, MT5 successfully builds on the positive points in the MT4 version. While there is not much difference in interface, MT5 offers more features, including depth of market display, extra order types, more technical indicators for analysis, and a testing environment for EAs, using real tick data. Of course, all devices supporting MT4 equally support MT5.
The Web Terminal option allows clients to trade straight from their FXChoice account through a supported browser. This subsequently saves time and the hassle of space from downloading software while providing clients with all the necessary tools and features.
FXChoice further aids clients with a good selection of third-party tools. For starters, the MQL5 Signals tool, built into the MetaTrader suite platform, is useful to copy trades of an array of signal providers, while the Myfxbook Autotrade Service allows clients to copy signals of published traders from the social trading site, Myfxbook. While users can choose the account’s trades they wish to shadow, they don’t choose the qualification condition; the FXChoice account must have funding of at least $1000. Other available tools include FXChoice VPS, Pips+Programme, Live Economic Calendar, among others.

FXCHOICE TRADING INFORMATION
The primary account types FXChoice offers clients include the Classic and the Pro account. Both options are similar in that they use a deposit limit of $100 (convenient for novice traders) and leverage about 200:1. Also, both offer maximum and minimum lot sizes of 0.01 and 1000 lots, respectively.
Nonetheless, there are some fundamental differences between them, the most recognized being the use of spread based commissions on Classic account trades, but Pro accounts charges commission up to $3.5 for every estimated $100,000 traded. Subsequently, pro accounts are more than likely to offer traders significantly tighter spreads than the Classic accounts. In any case, both types are usable on a demo version, perfect for novice traders to practice and develop.
Withdrawals and deposits are simplistic, and each method’s availability fundamentally depends on client location and transaction size. FXChoice majorly supports Bank transfers and e-wallets like Skrill and Neteller for transactions. FXChoice makes sure these localized payment methods are secure using encryption and, more specifically, Secure Socket Layer technology (SSL)
