Since the beginning of the year 2016, LiteForex has introduced a multitude of important and worthy changes. We've begun the year with summing up the results of our traditional New Year raffle New Year Promo 2016, offering precious prizes (iPad, iPhone, MacBook) to our happy clients and starting a new year that promises a lot of positive events.
In spring, we launched a truly magnificent project - Social Trading, traders’ social network for copying trades. The project increases our clients' opportunities and profits manyfold since this exceptional platform allows them to boost and stabilize earnings by getting an extra income through duplication of successful traders' trades or provision of their own trades for duplication. Social Trading participants can exchange their skills and acquire new knowledge by communicating with traders from all around the world.
Further, our team has developed a new version of the "Bring a friend 3.0" program, integrating it with the Social Trading project, and launched the "LiteForex Analytics" mobile application that provides the clients with high quality content from the Claws&Horns analytics portal.
Our geographical presence has been expanded with 2 more representative offices in Nigeria (Port Harcourt) and Georgia (Tbilisi). Furthermore, we have upgraded the range of our trading tools, adding Hong Kong 50 (HK50), Spain 35 (IBEX35), and Italy 40 (IT40) indexes, and we have cancelled minimum deposit amounts in ECN accounts with increased accuracy of quoting.
We constantly strive to improve our services in accordance with the spirit of the time. As a result, at the end of summer we have launched a new high-technology user-friendly site with improved design and architecture.
In the year 2015, LiteForex celebrated its 10th anniversary in the Forex market. Ten years have passed since our company was set up and gradually proved to be a successful broker. We are proud to have celebrated our anniversary with our clients and partners. Our anniversary promotion LF 10th Birthday Promo allowed us to express our gratitude for your confidence with the help of pleasant monetary prizes.
In 2015, LiteForex improved greatly the quality of analytical materials by dropping the out-of-date Autochartist service and opting for the modern professional Claws&Horns portal. The beginning of this cooperation is worth a special mention since we got the fullest package of analytical materials we could. The high quality of our analytical materials is guaranteed by the professional independent team of authors that publishes the materials in over 10 languages. The service is provided to LiteForex's clients at no cost. Also, we updated the company blog and brought in the best authors from the economic and financial sector.
The "LiteForex analytics" freeware for Android and HTML5-based Metatrader 4 WebTerminal, which allows for one-click trading right within your browser, were also launched in 2015. LiteForex's PAMM system has been keeping the lead for several years, which is very important to us. That's why we’ve been trying hard to develop this service even more. In 2015, we optimised PAMM accounts management so that our investors can perform lots of account operations much quicker by grouping accounts into categories. Besides, the company simplified participation in our affiliate contests and developed more convenient Partner's profiles, which display all necessary statistics on referrals and provide access to all available promo-materials. The upgraded Partner's Profiles took into consideration our partners’ comments and wishes, so they received the most positive response.
We upgraded the system of our trading accounts by providing CENT, CLASSIC, ECN, and PAMM types, along with reduced spreads (fixed spreads from 2 points and floating spreads from 0.9 points), and we improved trading conditions in the ECN accounts.
We made deposits and withdrawals through payment systems more convenient, including automated fee refunds when depositing via Skrill and withdrawals onto bank cards for the deposits made through PayOnline, CardPay or Qiwi. We enlarged the list of payment systems for our clients to use and brought in a convenient and reliable aggregator Moneta.ru.
Following our clients' numerous requests, we launched individual courses "1х1 Education" so that our clients could master the trader profession in the shortest time with the help of competent and experienced Forex practitioners.
We raise the level of our services every year, not least due to enlarging the network of our worldwide representative offices. In 2015, LiteForex opened another 2 offices: in Nairobi, Kenya, and in Lagos, Nigeria. On 9th and 10th April, LiteForex had the honour to sponsor the 14th MENA FOREX Managed Funds and Investment Show in Dubai, UEA.
Besides its geographical expansion, LiteForex extends the range of activities by starting to provide liquidity to its institutional clients.
In the run-up to the New Year holidays we organized the New Year Promo 2015 contest and awarded our clients with a slew of precious prizes, confirming our focus on loyalty. Within the framework of the most awaited event of the year, Great Hundred Season 4, - LiteForex raffled a car Toyota VIOS, a motorbike Yamaha FZ150i, Apple Macbook Pro, 5 Apple iPhones 6, 5 Apple iPads Air, 5 Apple iPads Mini, 5 Apple iPods Touch, and 10 digital media players Apple TV. Proclaimed as the Best Innovative Broker at the second annual FOREX EXPO CONFERENCE AND EXHIBITIONS, we can deservedly pride ourselves on the year 2015 and continue our work in 2016 with even more inspiration.
Summing up the results of the past year is not only a way of informing our clients about completed tasks and achievements, but also a great opportunity to outline further development directions and improve the existing services.
In the year 2014, our list of trading tools and payment systems increased substantially. The service of automatic funds withdrawals now includes the Neteller payment system, our clients from Belarus can use the EasyPay method, Brazilian traders can top up their accounts via Transferência Bancária Brasil, and UnionPay was implemented specially for our clients from China. Another novelty is an opportunity of direct deposits via bank cards, which allowed LiteForex to refund clients for deposit fees.
In March 2014, the company organized a conference in Peru dedicated to global financial markets. One of the highlights of the conference was raising a flag of LiteForex in Machu Picchu. In the same month, we made a decision to support traders and partners of the ForexCent Company that had ceased business. Our company allowed ForexCent's former clients to continue trading without financial losses. We returned all funds kept in ForexCent's accounts to the clients and transferred all trades to LiteForex's servers. Our company was among the first to implement the online trading platform Sirix Web Trader. Besides, we offered our clients the Autochartist application designed for automatic forecasts of market evolution.
We also designed a number of new client loyalty services, such as Risk Free, a service refunding clients for losses of up to $250, and an updated version of our popular affiliate program "Bring a friend 2.0" that now provides multi-level unlimited earning opportunities. In the summer, we raffled a luxurious Mercedes Benz S400 along with other precious prizes within the framework of our large-scale contest World Challenge, which attracted over 3000 traders worldwide.
The creation of LiteForex's VIP club was a peculiar moment in LiteForex's history in 2014. The club allowed us to enlarge our clients' potential and vary the trading process for both beginners and professionals. The beginning of our cooperation with the Claws&Horns independent analytical portal is also worth a mention, as our clients are now able to access high quality analytical materials at no cost.
In the same year, the network of our representative offices was enlarged with the opening of an office in Benin City, Nigeria.
To recap, we are deeply satisfied with what was achieved in the year 2014, as we managed to confirm our reputation, reliability and future-oriented approach to providing Forex trading services.

LiteForex’s history can be traced back to the year 2005. The company’s official opening took place on the 2th of July. The creation of a brokerage company that could rival existing companies and satisfy traders’ real requirements when working on the Forex international market was the initial concept. At the same time, LiteForex made a significant breakthrough in the brokerage service by introducing cent accounts with the minimum deposit of $1, while other companies strictly respected the Forex entrance threshold. This move made Forex available for potential investors and traders. The choice of MetaTrader as a trading platform that had already become popular worldwide also was a component of our success.
