    BROKER AFFILIATES, Are They As Big A Scammer As Broker? !!!

    I was searching for a US Broker with 60 second trading and $5 Trades. Selection was fairly slim and finally settled on Optimarkets. Yes I did my research and found some negative reviews but looked at these from my perspective of having been in business for many years myself and am sure there are some negative reviews out there on my work. Anyway the thing that swayed me was reviews from affiliates (remember I am a newbie) on You Tube. Never entered my mind that they would be just giving positive reviews for pay.
    So newbies check out your Broker on sites like this and request advise. Will save you lots of problems in the future and also a few Dollars.

    Happy Trading

    Did a quick look at some of the affiliates who had requested replies on their reviews of Broker Optimarkets. In all cases these requested replies had been removed and can only assume it was because they were negative.

    You give a glowing review on Optimarkets, I can only assume
    it is because you are an affiliate for them.
    My question is have YOU ever done business with them?
    I took your advise and can only say at this point they are a SCAM.

    You are right bif22,

    BOTS and CommuniTraders are the best place to find complains and SCAM revealing of the bad brokers. The only place on the net for truly objective opinion – you know that even the best brokers sucks sometimes. There is no hidden problems and no saved facts about every broker on earth. That’s why every newbie should start with reading the review pages and only after that to select their preferred broker.

    From my personal (and short) experience, I can tell you that I can't believe any affiliates out there. There's way too much mud being slung around from competing brokers and their affiliate cronies and so on. It is impossible to trust any affiliate for me.

    The only thing I can put my money on, is if the broker has been around for a long time, they have an awesome alexa rank, and they have an established business.

    Just do a lot of research and stick with the facts, that's my suggestion anyway. Not an expert!

    agreed, the thing i want to add is that you also can deal with the broker that was suggested by good friends of yours or relative, for example, i mean by those people you trust and who have no interest in making good or bad reviews for a platform. they just share their experience, whether it was good or bad...

    Nothing outrageous, money can do even much more than that.

    You are mostly right tonechild. It is really up to you to decide to you want to trust a particular broker or not. The longer the broker is in the business the better, but there is also something more. It is needed that the reputation of the broker is fairly good. There are too many brokers with bad reputation that are online for long time. So you always have to be aware of all the complains and opinions by real traders. Very important to read all the reviews about your future broker!

    And that is why I continue to post NEGATIVE REVIEWS when ever and where ever I can on Optimarkets and their Affiliates. Hopefully I can save new Traders some money.
    By the way going into third month and still no sign of my Approved Withdrawal. I took No Bonus and Optimarkets Finance Dept. has approved the withdrawal

    Happy Trading.

    Starting to see some results from my negative reviews on Optimarkets. Here is e-mail from Affiliate giving positive reviews for Optimarkets:

    Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I have removed OptiMarkets from the site for the foreseeable future until this matter gets resolved as well as other corroborating opinions emerge regarding OptiMarkets.

    thanks,
    Jason
    BinaryOptions1.com

    It warms my heart that I might be costing Optimarkets some clients. I will continue to make posts whenever and wherever I can about this SCAM BROKER.
    TRADERS BEWARE!

    Happy Trading
