VantageFX has a really good commisson fee compared to other brokers. I use STP and ECN account. ECN account has low spread as advertised. Customer support is a bit slow and not always accurate but does the job.
VantageFX offers the usual MT5 platform, with plenty of CFD and stocks to trade, too.
+ Website is easy + Signup process and KYC process is standard + Customer support replies fast + High leverage for CFD Indices (500-333 depending on equity)
- Payment process is sometimes delayed due to checks and you need to contact customer support to get a new credit card accepted - No support for PayBackFX using MT5, they actively refuse to participate - No MT5 servers in Europe, just US and Aussie - No help with VPS packet loss to their servers. Using two 2 different VPS providers I had packet loss issues to VantageFX servers, and received no support at all to solve the issue. - Like most FX brokers, their customer support focusses to solve tickets - not solve problems
After the recent attack from the AU gov to reduce leverage to 30, VantageFX remains one of the few fairly ok brokers left to trade with high margin.
Claim to be the 'lowest ECN based account commissions' but what you are not told about is their spreads are not competitive and interest/swap rates are one of the worst 😄😄😄. Will be closing my account soon
Been with Vantage nearly 2 years now, as a consistently proftiable trader withdrawals have been easy. Customer support is amongst the best, live chat have always sorted my issues there and then within an hour. Not like another popular broker who takes 3 days to reply to emails, thank god for Vantage and the live chat system, not only that, live chat actually know what they are talking about and have the power to amend etc on my account when I need it. Execution of trades have been the best I have encountered, I have accounts at Pepperstone, FXCM, Alpari and a few others, and Vantage absolutely kicks ass when it comes to execution and negative or positive slippage. Long may Vantages service continue and I hope they don't change things to make it worse, thank you Vantage.
I'm really happy with Vantage, low spreads on RAW ECN, cheaper commissions than IC and less slippage from my experience ... best of all, they're still taking New Zealand clients when a lot of brokers have stopped! Never had any problems with withdrawals either!

I dont trust any broker that wont let me close (or open) by a phone call. I been with Global Trader here in South Africa for 5 years now. I dont even use their platform to trade off. I prefer the phone. I use MT4 for charts (with false email accounts and false phone numbers whenever I have to register a demo to get charts. What I always enjoy is getting the same desk operator that takes my call, listens, confirms and executes, and the text comes through on my phone immediately. They are more Stock exchange focused and offer very few FX pairs but there are enough. EURUSD, Cable, Loony, EURGBP, USDCHF USDJPY and one or two other pairs. I caught USDJPY at the start of abenomics and the position was never challenged or questioned. I remember sitting in the DRakensberg Sun Resort that December 2011 I think?? calling the number and placing the trade, then it was happy days for many days.
Мой первый и, наверное, единственный брокер, в котором при торговле у меня было минимум проблем. Счет я открывал у них ещё осенью на 200 баксов. Скоро буду открываться на более крупную сумму. Спасибо Vantage FX! Процветания вам.
Отличный брокер как по мне! С Vantage FX познакомился по совету знакомых. Не прогадал. Более честного и порядочного брокера редко где встретишь. Буду продолжать с ними сотрудничать. Ввод-вывод опробован многократно! Все на отлично
