They manipulate their rules to scam you and take your money. Stay away from them
They scammed many clients when the oil price crashed on April 20 and took huge amounts of their clients against their own rules and then they manipulated rules to keep the clients money. Never doubt they are definitely market makers and took clients money.
They manipulated their rules many times in just 3 days and then started to justify their mistake by referring to those manipulated rules.
Based on their original rules regarding CFD’s which was existed from 2014 they must switch to new contract a day before expiration day. Which clearly was explained by an example for contract with expiration date on 16 Jan and it says:
“On 15 January, we switch from using the February 2014 quote to the March 2014 quote as the basis for the spot price, because the underlying February 2014 futures market expires on 16 January.”
But for some reason they didn’t switch on time and they continued with the May contract until April 20 at 21:08 when the price came to one cent and they faced the problem which was caused because they didn’t switch before market opening on April 20. Then they disabled trading on oil for almost 5 hours and then they found the best solution to get the clients money by using the swap because the amount was huge and they decided instead of taking responsibility of system error which gave wrong quote to keep the clients money and instead of normal time for opening market at 01:00 finally at 02:43 they opened market with June contract price with almost 27 hours delay and charged the clients with huge amount of swaps and then they acted like everything was ok and there was no issue
On April 21st they started manipulating their rules. First, I found they manipulated the rules by changing the switching date on example from 15 Jan to 17 Jan.
They didn’t stop it and again they manipulated the rules by changing the date from 17 Jan to “at the beginning of 16 Jan” and instead they postponed all expiry dates one day which for May contracts they changed the expiration date from April 20 to April 21 to cover the problem and by this manipulating they messed up every thing in all emails and in their news on the website and even here in their customer service answers to complaints the expiration date for May contract is April 20 but in the file which is manipulated the expiry date is April 21 and by this action they justified the delay.
When I asked them about the reason for the manipulation of their rules they answered :“we rephrased rules for better understanding” which is ridiculous because they changed the most important parts of rules that was the date and time for switching and it was clear and there was no need to rephrase it except to try to justify their mistake. I also explained that they couldn’t manipulate the rules after issue happened and then try to justify the problem by referring to manipulated rules and the reason, they couldn’t answer based on their rules was definitely their fault and their action was exactly scamming.
Again, I sent evidences and explained their action by changing date of expiration for CFD’s is not rephrasing and they answered: “Our CFDs are based on market contracts. The expiration day is the last day when the contract can be traded and it is always a business day. There couldn’t be any trading on Sunday (April 19), so it could not be the last trading day” and at the same time they sent another email to all clients to say they would switch to July contracts before market opening on May 4th which was Monday and it has the same condition which they are saying we couldn’t do it, because the day before April 20 was Sunday and it wasn’t a business day. So how are you doing it this time. Although all brokers did that before market opening and there is enough time between 23:59:59 of Friday April 17 when the market closed and at 01:00 on the next day when the market opened regardless of the last day being a business day or not like this time you had enough time from 23:59:59 on Friday April 17 to 01:00 April 20. I have all evidences recorded and I would attach them here if it was possible.
