Scoring Criteria of the Forex Brokers Rating Review

In the ranking of the best service Forex brokers, we will consider the following factors:

  • Speed ​​and accuracy of the support staff in answering questions.
  • Support staff working hours
  • Difficulty accessing the support staff
  • Good/bad feeling when talking to the support staff
  • Website usage (easy to understand or difficult)
  • Various management systems must be easy to understand, such as opening an account, verifying identity, deposit and withdrawal, clarifying various information, etc.
  • Number of language translation on the website
  • Number of languages ​​available in Live chat
  • Efficiency on various contact channels such as Email, Facebook messenger, Line, Whatsapp, etc.

Conclusion

We had to rank Forex brokers in terms of services because sometimes traders might be encountering urgent problems. A good broker should be able to fix them or give a clear answer. Traders (customers) must not have a bad impression of using the services of such broker.

The main thing that brokers need to survive in their business is traders, so brokers should pay attention to traders. We shouldn’t trade with brokers who don’t really care about their customers.
