In the highly competitive world of online trading, HFM (formerly HotForex) has established itself as a leading multi-asset broker. So, let’s delve into a comparative analysis to see how HFM’s trading conditions stack up against notable competitors in the industry.


Regarding leverage, HFM shines with its offering of up to 1:2000, allowing traders to maximize their positions. In comparison, AvaTrade falls short with a maximum leverage of 1:400 for professionals and 1:200 for retail traders.


Regarding spreads, HFM stands out as it offers flexible and some of the lowest spreads in the market. AvaTrade and Exness, although competitive, do not match HFM’s advantageous pricing.

Account Types

Regarding trading account options, HFM’s range of accounts caters to various trading needs, from the Premium Account which has no minimum deposit to the Pro Account with a minimum deposit requirement of 100 USD or 1,800 ZAR, and swap free trading on all accounts for specific trading instruments. In contrast, Competitor AvaTrade’s account options may not be as diverse or tailored.

Customer Support

HFM also excels in customer support and service, assisting traders 24/5 via email, phone and live chat. AvaTrade and Exness, while satisfactory, may not offer the same level of responsiveness and personalized support.

Trading Platforms and Education

Regarding trading tools and platforms, HFM offers a comprehensive suite of advanced tools and platforms empowering traders. On the other hand, Exness’ offerings are not as robust or feature-rich.

Lastly, HFM provides extensive educational resources to support traders’ learning and growth. Exness’ educational offerings may not be as extensive or well-rounded.
