Overall

MyChoiceFX is a MetaTrader-only broker regulated in Belize. It offers several dozen forex pairs and CFDs, but its narrow range of research tools and lack of a regulatory license from a major jurisdiction weighs down on its offering.

Commissions & Fees

MyChoiceFX offers the Classic and Pro account types where the commissions and fees vary across each one. In the Classic account, the broker lists a spread of $14 on the EUR/USD pair, or 1.4 pips, meanwhile, the Pro account is commission-based with an $8.08 commission or 0.8 pips added to spreads of 0.7 pips, bringing the all-in cost to a level similar to that of the Classic account. It is worth noting that the spreads in the following excerpt from the broker’s site are minimum spreads and not average or typical spreads.

Research

MyChoiceFX offers several options when it comes to research beyond an economic calendar and a virtual private server (VPS) service for MT4 and MT5 users, as well as Myfxbook Autotrade for social copy trading. The broker has a range of educational-related content, which falls more towards the support side of its offering than its research side. Research remains an area in which MyChoiceFX has considerable room to expand, as its current offering is very limited.

    Final Thoughts

    For traders looking for a MetaTrader-only broker that offers both MT4 and MT5, MyChoiceFX has a limited range of tradeable markets, with just 50 available instruments and few research-related tools.

    In addition, the broker lacks regulatory status in a major jurisdiction, although it is ahead of other brokers who lack jurisdiction altogether, as MyChoiceFX is regulated in Belize. Having said that, obtaining another license in a major financial hub would greatly boost the broker’s trust score, and add more research content such as daily market analysis.

    Forex Risk Disclaimer

    "There is a very high degree of risk involved in trading securities. With respect to margin-based foreign exchange trading, off-exchange derivatives, and cryptocurrencies, there is considerable exposure to risk, including but not limited to, leverage, creditworthiness, limited regulatory protection and market volatility that may substantially affect the price, or liquidity of a currency or related instrument. It should not be assumed that the methods, techniques, or indicators presented in these products will be profitable, or that they will not result in losses."Learn more.
