Orient Markets Review: High Risk (Suspected Fraud)


Orient Markets, a forex platform since 2018, will be evaluated here in various dimensions: regulation, trade types, software, fund security, deposits/withdrawals, and leverage.

Orient Markets Company Overview:

The official information on the Orient Markets website indicates that the company and its affiliated entity, ORIENT MARKETS PTY LTD, are registered in the United Kingdom and Australia, respectively. Verification through the UK Companies House and the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) websites confirms the registration of the company and its affiliate in the UK and Australia. Additionally, a Whois search for the website domain reveals that the company's official domain was registered on January 11, 2022, and has been active for over a year.





Is Orient Markets Compliant and Legal? Does it hold relevant financial regulatory licenses?

Orient Markets is not regulated or authorized by any financial regulatory authorities. The official website of Orient Markets does not provide regulatory information, and a search on the TraderKnows for information from its registered regulatory body, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the UK, did not yield any relevant regulatory or authorization details.

Although the Orient Markets website indicates that its affiliated entity, ORIENT MARKETS PTY LTD, holds an Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) authorized representative license (AR license), the regulatory and investor protection strength of this license appears to be weak. ORIENT MARKETS PTY LTD and over 20 similar entities purchase AR licenses from WHOLESALE INVESTOR SERVICES PTY LTD (503128) for promotional purposes, despite having no actual relationship between them.




Trading Instruments Offered by Orient Markets:

The Orient Markets website states that the company provides trading services for forex, precious metals, and indices to investors.


Trading Software Provided by Orient Markets:

Orient Markets offers its proprietary Tradingweb trading software for both desktop (Windows) and mobile (IOS/Android) versions, as per the information on its official website.


Fund Security:

Orient Markets has not disclosed any third-party fund regulatory information on its official website, raising concerns about the security of user funds.

Deposit and Withdrawal Channels:

While Orient Markets showcases deposit and withdrawal operations on its official website, it fails to provide information on supported channels, methods, supported currencies, fees, and processing times for deposits and withdrawals.


Leverage Ratio:

The Orient Markets website does not provide information on the leverage ratio for all covered trading products, including forex, precious metals, and indices.


Orient Markets is a forex brokerage firm engaging in illegal financial activities by using false regulatory information. The broker has not disclosed critical information regarding user fund security, deposit and withdrawal channels, etc. It is strongly advised to exercise caution and prioritize the safety of your financial assets to avoid falling into fraudulent schemes. Currently the broker is marked as "Suspected Fraud" on TraderKnows.

The End


Pig Butchering Scam

The 'Pig Butchering Scam' is a type of financial fraud that originated in Southeast Asia, but has now become prevalent globally. The name stems from the scammers' method of dealing with their victims: similar to raising pigs, they first 'fatten' them by building trust, and then 'slaughter' them by swindling away all their money.
