Vantage FX was formed in 2009 and has been a disruptive force in retail FX ever since. On day one we asked ourselves ‘What do traders want from a forex broker?’ and have striven to deliver above and beyond ever since. Here are just a few of the reasons our clients consider us the best forex broker:
No Dealing Desk – No Conflict of Interest
Vantage FX is a true STP forex broker which means your orders are actually placed and filled in the real foreign exchange market. There is no dealing desk intervention, which means no requotes and rejections and your orders always get filled at the best available market price. We do not trade against our clients, while some brokers profit of their clients’ losses, Vantage FX derives our revenue from sheer volume – we want you to become a successful trader and grow your account and trade size!
Trade like a Pro with RAW ECN Spreads
Our RAW ECN account features some of the lowest spreads available. Due to the large volume cleared here at Vantage, we can offer our retail clients true institutional grade liquidity, previously only available to investment banks, hedge funds and extreme high net worth individuals. Now you can trade like a pro with as little as $500!
As well as ultra-tight RAW ECN spreads, Vantage FX clients also pay the lowest base commission charge in the country. With professional grade spreads and commissions on offer to all our clients, big and small, it’s no wonder they consider us to be the best forex broker.
Supercharged MT4 Platform
The MetaTrader 4 or MT4 platform is without a doubt the most popular forex trading platform in the world, used by over 70% of the word’s retail forex traders. Vantage FX has taken this platform and supercharged it with our Smart Trader Tools package. Correlation matrix, advanced order types, Session Map, customizable Market Watch tab and a greatly enhanced alarm system are just a few of the awesome features available with Vantage FX MT4. While other forex brokers are happy to offer you the same old blah, Vantage FX aims to be the best forex broker, so we developed the best MT4 platform!
Unmatched Execution Speed
Vantage FX’s uniquely optimized fibre optic network developed in partnership with MetaQuotes has been fine tuned for the fastest possible execution speed. Equinix live servers in Sydney, London & New York, as well as data centres throughout China and Hong Kong mean your orders are processed within fractions of a second, allowing you to realize the price requested trade after trade. Ultra fast execution and ultra tight spreads give you the edge you need to beat the market and make Vantage FX the best forex broker for scalping strategies and expert advisors.
While lots of forex brokers base their operations in tax havens with lax financial regulations like Cyprus or the Cayman Islands, Vantage FX’s is Australian regulated and fully compliant with the strict regulatory framework set out by the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC). We consistently provide clear and transparent access to the global forex market and make the safety of your funds a priority above all else. All client funds are held in a segregated account with Australia’s AA rated National Australia Bank (NAB).
Earn 8.88% Interest on Account Balance
In 2016 we rolled out a truly disruptive feature where clients are actually paid interest on account balances held with Vantage FX. Clients who deposit at least $5000 and trade the minimum lot requirement each month will be paid 8.88% interest on their account balance. In this persistent low interest rate environment that has plagued the world since the GFC, this is a true game changer for those investors struggling to find yield. At the time of printing we are the ONLY forex broker in the world paying interest on deposits.
Clients who trade on our STP Standard account benefit from one of the most equitable rebate programs in the industry. We listened to what our clients wanted from a rebate program and designed one in house that goes above and beyond third party rebate programs. Vantage FX STP Standard account holders who opt in to our rebate program are paid cash rebates directly into their account on a daily basis. Earn $2 / lot on all your trades on the standard account up to 10% of your deposited funds. Our STP account is already an incredibly cheap option for those traders who don’t like to pay commissions and our rebate program just makes the account even better. Exhausted your rebate allowance? Simply deposit more funds to keep the rebates flowing!
