I have co-operated with InstaForex since February 2011. I chose it for top-quality services, for personal approach, and fast withdrawals and deposits to and from the account. I was very pleased by the leverage which is from 1:1000 and, of course, by various contests. I try to visit all exhibitions where InstaForex takes part in order to communicate with the representatives of the company in person and find out the recent news as well as to get consulted. I have been to three exhibitions of the kind in Kiev already.
