Importantly, with a Demo account, traders in South Africa and elsewhere, simulate their trades with virtual funds whilst enjoying access to all the features and tools on the trading platform. We recommend that traders practice trading in a demo account whenever possible, so as to hone their skills and increase the possibility of making profits, when they move on to real money trading.

    FXChoice Bonus

    Customers all over the world, including South Africa may be excited to hear that FXChoice offers a 15% bonus on most deposits made to trading accounts, (up to $10,000 of bonus money per month irrespective of deposit amounts). Whilst the bonuses awarded may vary in size, traders typically have 90 days to complete the trading volume specified in the terms and conditions on the website.

    FXChoice Trading Software

    Customers can access the FXChoice MT4 or MT5 trading platform depending on the account type. Both platforms must be downloaded to desktop and are also available as trading apps for Android and iOS powered mobile devices.

    FXChoice Auto Trading with MyfxBook

    Customers at FXChoice can connect their MT4/MT5 trading accounts with Myfxbook in seconds. Access to the service is free, and allows traders to copy the trades of selected successful traders, without paying a fee or installing additional software. Notably, the trades are copied automatically into the ‘followers’ trading account and executed immediately. Nevertheless, we recommend that traders look at the process of using free signals and auto trading on MYfxbook, as automated trading can lead to large trading losses as well as large profits.

    FXCHoice Support Information

    Customers at FXChoice are provided with several communication channels, indicated on the top right-hand corner of the website. The 24/7 call back service is free of charge, and provides clients with live support over the phone at any time that suits them. The service is in English, Spanish, Italian, Farsi, Mandarin and Thai, which we find an exceptional choice, and extremely helpful for global clients, including customers in South Africa. Alternatively, clients can initiate the live chat help line directly on the interface or submit a ticket to the customer services team from the contact page, stating the nature of the enquiry.

    Whilst FXChoice does not have a dedicated educational centre on the website, the FAQs page is extensive, including a ‘Knowledge Base’, expiration and execution rules as well as trading conditions and the FXChoice rollover policy amongst other important topics.

    FXChoice Payment Methods

    Accounts at FXChoice can be opened in EUR, GBP, USD, AUD, CAD, CHF, cBTC, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, mAU (gold). To avoid extra fees, FXChoice recommends that clients deposit and withdraw funds in the same currency selected to operate the trading account.

Skrill, Neteller, Trustly, Qiwi, AstroPay, Perfect Money, UnionPay and FasaPay are just some of the electronic payment methods seen at FXChoice.

    We were pleased to see that clients can deposit in cryptocurrencies that currently include Bitcoin, Litecoin, Bitcoin cash and Ethereum. However, customers in South Africa usually have some local payment methods offered to them at account registration as payment methods accepted by FXChoice vary across the world.

    Withdrawals can usually be made using bank wire transfer, Skrill, Neteller, FasaPay, Perfect Money, epayments, Qiwi, Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin cash and Litecoin. Notably, it takes 48 hours to process withdrawals and the processing takes place on week days only. The time it takes for customers to get their money depends on the payment methods chosen.

    Withdrawals by electronic payment methods are done instantly, once processing is complete, whilst payments by bank wire transfer may take up to 5 business days. Withdrawals to credit cards may take as long as 8 business days for the money to arrive. FXChoice charges handling fees for processing withdrawal requests but the exact amount is not specified openly on the website. Only once customers register accounts with the brokerage can they see the exact fees schedule.

    Customers can rest assured that transactions at FXChoice are processed safely and securely, with all communication encoded using SSL encryption technology. Clients are asked to keep their passwords secret to ensure that their accounts are not accessed by fraudsters.
