75-90% of retail traders lose money trading Forex and CFDs. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs and leveraged trading work and if you can afford the high risk of losing your money.

Forex trading in India is illegal for non-professional traders, and the Securities Board of India (SEBI) tightly regulates professional Forex trading due to concerns over capital flight. Most Indian Forex traders use foreign “offshore” Forex brokers and fund their trading via online payment providers. For more information, click here.

Our verdict on JP Markets

JP Markets is a South African market maker broker offering support for MT4 and an exceptional 200% deposit bonus.

Spreads are unpublished, but JP Markets state that spreads on the EUR/USD average about 2 pips under normal market conditions, which is very wide for brokers of this type. Education is limited and only a single account type is available. Market analysis and research seem to be non-existent.

We have received many complaints about JP Markets and are in the process of investigating these. We advise traders to find another approved broker until we have verified these claims.

Is JP Markets Safe?

JP Markets is a South African brokerage firm, founded in 2016 and regulated by the FSCA through licence no 46855. Through an aggressive marketing and “Partner” programme, mainly over social media, it has grown to become one of the largest brokers in the country.

JP Markets offers support for the MT4 platform only. Spreads are unpublished and JP Markets refuses to take responsibility for the spread, stating that “JP Markets has no control over the platform, spreads or clients’ account”. All JP Markets will say is: “On average you can get EUR/USD for about 2 pips, under normal market conditions.” While this may be the case, this is a very wide spread for the most traded currency pair in the world.

While both statements are deceptive, more worrying is the number of complaints we have received about this broker. These range from deposits not reflecting, to withdrawals never appearing and, most worrying of all, direct manipulation of the spread and client trades. Customer support is described as poor and often unresponsive, particularly in cases of funding issues.

While we are currently investigating these claims, we recommend that traders steer clear of JP Markets until these complaints are verified. Once we have completed our investigation we will write a full review. In the meantime, we can categorically state that you should NEVER sign up with a broker over social media.

As of June 2020, the FSCA provisionally suspended the licence of JP Markets SA citing complaints from clients that JP Markets is not honoring withdrawal requests.  Source: and
