Pyramid scheme complaint
Note: For some unknown reason, we cannot open PomeloFXs official site (https://pomelofx.com/) while writing this introduction, therefore, we could only gather relevant information from the Internet to present a rough picture of this broker. Traders should be careful about this issue.
General Information & Regulation
PomeloFX, a trading name of PomeloFX LTD, is allegedly a forex broker registered in Vanuatu that claims to provide its clients with various tradable financial instruments with flexible leverage up to 1:1200 and variable spreads from 0.0 pips on the MetaTrader4 and MetaTrader5 trading platforms, as well as a choice of four different live account types.
As for regulation, it has been verified that PomeloFX is offshore regulated by the Vanuatu Financial Services Commission (VFSC). That is why its regulatory status on WikiFX is listed as “Offshore Regulatory” and it receives a relatively low score of 4.78/10. Please be aware of the risk.
PomeloFX advertises that the market instruments the users can trade include forex currency pairs, cryptocurrencies, precious metals, energies and indices.
PomeloFX claims to offer four types of trading accounts, namely Standard, Islamic, Raw and ECN. The minimum initial deposit amount is $300 for the Standard, Islamic and Raw accounts, while the ECN account has a much higher minimum initial capital requirement of $500. In comparison, licensed brokers allow setting up a starter account with a minimum deposit of $100 or even less.
Traders holding different account types can enjoy different maximum leverage ratios. Clients on the Standard and Islamic accounts can experience leverage of 1:500, the Raw account holders can have a leverage of 1:200, while only the ECN account members can enjoy the maximum leverage of 1:1200. It is important to keep in mind that the greater the leverage, the greater the risk of losing your deposited capital. The use of leverage can both work in your favour and against you.
Spreads & Commissions
PomeloFX claims that different account types have different spreads and commissions. Specifically, the spread starts from 1.6 pips on the Standard account, from 1.9 pips on the Islamic account, from 0.5 pips on the Raw account and 0.0 pips on the ECN account. As for commissions, there is no commission charged on the Standard and Islamic accounts, while an $8 commission on the Raw account and a $6 commission on the ECN account.
