Gulf Brokers fees

As I have mentioned, the deposit is a minimum of $500. The minimum tradable lot size is 0.01 and there is no maximum. Leverage of 1:500 is the highest allowed and spreads are variable with the major pairs having spreads of 3-4 pips. They don’t charge any trading commission on the forex and CFD account, but a 0.5% trading commission applies to the trading of stocks on this account.

Inactive accounts get charged a $10 monthly maintenance fee and advertise $0 fees on deposits and withdrawals. Keep in mind that fees can vary and can change.

The registration

As I have already seen the join button while going through their web, it was easy for me to find and simply “join”. The simple form was filled it in a minute.

While I was waiting for my welcome email, I got a view of my Client zone account. The design was clean and I could find all the information I needed intuitively. For example, at the bottom of the page, I could read through their licenses and regulations and go through the risk disclaimer. At the top of the page, I had my details, instruments option and a CTA button to start trading or make a deposit.

Meanwhile, I got my welcome email. Two, to be precise. The first email had my login details for my Client zone account. The second email had my activation link. After choosing the demo account option a got another question if I want the demo account. I don’t find it necessary to ask me 3× if I am sure I want to open a demo account.

I left it as it was pre-set and I’m in.

When the login option comes up on the MT5 platform, you have to click (again) the demo account, fill in your name, surname and get new login details.

The Gulf Brokers trading platform

The MetaTrader5 has a simple interface easy enough for beginners yet it has advanced trading tools and market analysis features to make it suitable for professional traders. I`m using the WebTrader which is a version of the MT5 trading platform. No downloads and installations, as I have a MacBook, I was happy to use the WebTrader.

I find it minimalistic and the interface is functional, easy to use, intuitive and easy to find whatever you need. Although the design is a bit ugly.  You can either choose the standard order setting path using the buttons, or you can choose a quick one-click trading path.

Although the registration took a bit longer than I expected, the final feeling from starting my trading on MT5 WebTrader was worth it. Easy and intuitive.

The brokers’ website

My first feeling was, that they are professional, no marketing drivel, everything straightforward and short. The site has a clear structure, it is clear, and the information can be found very quickly.

In the top panel of the website, you can choose:

Pretty much the standard. There is no list of option once you hover over the selected choice. It takes you straight to the page with the information you are looking for. Gulf Brokers offers a simple news service with a number of contributions each week.

In addition to news, you will find a calendar with financial events and blogs by their Chief Analyst. In the education section, you can find webinars, tips for traders and a glossary. I probably need extra educational webinars and videos to be honest.

So, I clicked on the option to look at more videos and the same videos came up. So, no extra support here.

Social networks

In the footer of their web pages, you can find they offer Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Facebook is full of information. They post news and facts nearly every day.

The Twitter account didn’t load up, it looks like they are inactive there. But Instagram is beaming with pictures and activity.

Advantages and disadvantages summary

They are an award-winning forex and CFD broker and offer a wide range of trading instruments on the powerful MT5 trading platform. Their website is well designed, stylish with no extra unnecessary information.

Facebook and Instagram beaming with information and you can practise on their free demo account. The educational support isn’t enough from my point of view. And the minimum deposit is quite high too.

Cons

  • Educational support should be expanded
  • Not the lowest minimum deposit

Pros

  • Free demo account
  • Regulated and licensed
  • Over 800 instruments available
  • Trading on MetaTrader5
  • Responsive and reliable in communication
  • Up-to-date and inspiring analytical coverage and blog

  1. I invest with this broker only in stocks that are longer-term. So far I am satisfied and I can only recommend.

  2. I think there Customer service is really good I’m treading 6 month’s ago in the beginning i was a little bit scared but now i have full knowledge about stop loss take profit technical analysis and also fundamental analysis plus they teach me also how to use indicators i can just only recommend this company! 🙂

  3. Usually I don’t write these kind of reviews but this time I just want to protect people from future scam… because these croocks aren’t going to stop I know it for sure. first time they have contacted me I invested 1000€ they said they will be able to make more than 100% profit per month it was of course hard to believe but I had free money and decided to try it out (Because I thought I can withdraw it back whenever I want anyways) well after I invested they have traded on my account and as promised were making more than 100% gain per month (Only now I understand that it all was fake platform and fake profit) anyways after some month they proposed me to invest a very big amount of money just for 1 month to make 100% gain and then withdraw so I believed them and put in 150 000 EURO. Quite obviously after I sent the funds I haven’t heard from them for almost 2 weeks until I started ringing all the possible bells they have also locked my account and requested all kinds of documents, after weeks of trying to communicate with them it wasn’t working out and I couldn’t get any money. in search for help on how to get my money back I was directed to contact Mr Nathan Harold who work with crypto currency authorities, I contacted him and explained my situation to him, he requested for some details about the broker and concerning my investment, I forwarded all the details to him. it was all like a dream, through him I was able to get back all my money, please don’t sit back and cry when you facing difficulties in withdrawing your profit or you totally lost your funds to any Broker or Account Manager, kindly contact Mr Nathan through his email address: [email protected], I assure you a successful funds recovery.

    has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but
