May Best Performing Forex Brokers: Conquering Mount Everest, and more

At visitors are free to express their opinion on forex brokers’ performance by means of voting and commenting through the rating. Each opinion is important. This means that joining us you become a forex market agent too. In this review we are highlighting the best rated forex brokers of the last spring month of 2012 as per our community’s voting results. Compared to April, in May the Top 10 list has been 40% renewed.

Ava FX, the April Top 10 Forex Rating leader, has lost the May race to MRC Markets, a veteran. eToro has made a giant leap up a few steps and made a raise from its April 7th position to the bronze level. Nord FX has also made significant progress having moved from 10th to 4th position in May. Remarkable and impressive achievements!

EXNESS, ACFX and Admiral Markets managed to stay within Forex Rating Top 10 for one month only in April, but May voting figures have excluded them from the best of the best list. Let’s see if they manage to make up in the nearest months.

We’d like to give a particular notice of the May Top 10 newbies. They are:  Swissquote,, Alpari, and FXCM. Early in May Swissquote has launched the most traded energy product in the world, West Texas Intermediate (WTI) Crude Oil, available directly on all of Swissquote’s platforms: FXBook, Advanced Trader, Web Trader and MetaTrader 4.

FXCM has got something special for the Apple users in May: it has announced the full launch of the App Store for Traders. In the store FXCM presents custom applications for the FXCM Trading Station and MT4 platforms. ( is recognized by forex traders for its competitive spreads and high speed of order execution.

Alpari is known to widely promote their new offers, contests and activities, and May was rich in positive news produced by this fx broker. At the beginning of May Alpari has announced the release of the much-awaited MetaTrader 4 applications. The iPhone application has been made available to all Alpari clients with an Apple mobile device:  iPhone, iPad, iPod touch. The MetaTrader 4 application for Android is applicable on all Android OS smartphones and tablets.

New applications allow customers make forex trades, view quotes and charts as well as access their trading history and log files, where the time and results of terminal operations are recorded.

In May and up to June 15th Alpari’s hottest promotional offer is a bonus of up to 10% to a deposit amount.

Alpari brand sounds much more than just trading: on May 19, 2012, the 'Alpari: On Top of the World' team raised the Alpari flag on the world's highest point. Getting to the top certainly wasn't easy as unsually harsh conditions this season on Mount Everest have decreased the number of successful climbs.

We congratulate everybody on this outstanding accomplishment. The key summit in the project has been taken! Next up: Alaska's Mount McKinley, June 20th, 2012.
