GEMFOREX | Forex Broker Review

GEMFOREX is a forex broker founded by Japanese people. Actually, it is not so well known in the world, but it is fairly famous in Japan.

The spreads of No Spread Account is narrow (not “No” spreads), so I think it is good for those traders who focus on cost.

GEMFOREX didn’t have a financial license until 2019, but with the approval of the New Zealand financial authorities, credibility has increased.

Is GEMFOREX a Reliable Broker? Or Scam?

In conclusion, GEMFOREX is not a scammer, but it is a forex broker with a little lower reliability than other brokers.

It has been in business for 10 years since its establishment in 2010, and it is also focusing on improving services, and it seems that the number of customers is actually increasing.
So I don’t think GEMFOREX is a bad scammer who runs away with the money entrusted by the customer.

GEMFOREX Licenses

GEMFOREX has the following licenses.

  • FSP (New Zealand)

As I mentioned at the beginning, GEMFOREX got a financial license for New Zealand in 2019.

In other words, it was founded in 2010 and has been operating without a license for 10 years until 2019.

Even so, it seems that the fact that it has been in business for 10 years is not for fraudulent purposes, but now it means that it has finally cleared the minimum conditions.

GEMFOREX Asset Conservation

Is there any measure to protect customer assets?

What happens to our assets (margin and profits deposited) if the forex broker goes bankrupt?

It should be decided that the forex broker who can guarantee customer assets as much as possible is more reliable.

It is the asset conservation system to evaluate it.

There are two main types of asset conservation systems.

  • Conservation Trust
  • Segregation of Funds

Conservation Trust is more reliable.

Conservation Trust means depositing all the customer assets to a third institution such as a bank. Forex brokers cannot withdraw funds without permission unless the customer instructs them to withdraw. Even if the forex broker goes bankrupt, the customer’s assets (balance at that time) are protected and guaranteed.

Segregation of Funds is to manage the operating costs of the forex broker and the assets under custody from the customer in separate accounts. Unlike Conservation Trust, the management is done by the forex broker itself, so even if the forex broker goes bankrupt, the customer’s assets are may not fully guaranteed.

How does GEMFOREX manage customer assets?

GEMFOREX manages customer assets by Segregation of Funds.

Since it is not a Conservation Trust, its reliability will decrease.
It can be said that this also meets the minimum requirements.

As mentioned above, it has been in business for 10 years since its establishment, and it can be said that it is not a fraudulent company, but if you are worried, please choose another broker.

GEMFOREX Products

GEMFOREX offers 45 products.

GEMFOREX has the smallest number of products in brokers I have introduced.

However, the transaction costs of currency pairs are relatively low, so I think GEMFOREX will be a main option for those who trade mainly on major currency pairs.

  • Currency : 31
  • Index : 10
  • Energy : 2
  • Metal : 2
  • Total : 45

Please refer to another article for a detailed explanation of the products handled by and the terms and conditions of the transaction.

Recently, trading of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ripple, Ethereum and other Altcoin has become popular again.

It is very popular with short-term traders due to its large price fluctuations.

Bitcoin has also risen steadily, finally surpassing $ 20,000 in late 2020. There are also long-term traders.

Can cryptocurrencies be traded in GEMFOREX?

Unfortunately, GEMFOREX does not allow you to trade cryptocurrencies.

GEMFOREX offers quite good trading conditions, so I hope GEMFOREX will offer cryptos in the near future.

GEMFOREX Account Types

There are 2 types in all. (Excluding demo account)

From my actual experience, spreads on No Spread account are not zero. This is not an ECN account, so an account that does not collect commissions. Spreads are very narrow. It depends on pairs, for example, USDJPY is only 0.3 pips and it’s fixed.

There are some conditions such as the minimum deposit amount, but in reality it is not much different from an All-In-One account. And EA cannot run on No Spread account.
