    HotForex – is it a scam? Reviews

    Evolution from HotForex to HFM

    In 2022, HotForex evolved into HFM, a new era with a new look, new brand name and new domain name that better reflects its wide variety of products and services. It remains committed to maintaining its mission to be a client-centric broker of choice and market leader that provides the best customer service.

    New Products Added in 2022: Physical Stocks

    In June 2022, HFM added more than 2,000 zero-commission physical stocks to its products offerings, allowing clients to diversify their portfolio and own a part of their favourite company’s shares.

    As well as the opportunity to own high-value stocks, HFM clients can buy fractional shares for just $5. With direct access to the world’s biggest stock exchanges, investors get real-time prices for global market-leading stocks.

    A wide range of account types, ranging from the Micro account which can be opened with just $5 to the HFcopy copy trading platform, means clients have the opportunity to diversify their portfolio by trading on one and investing on the other.
