MahiFX Review


MahiFX was established in 2010 and is regulated by ASIC (Australia). It is a new online retail foreign exchange (FX) trading business based in New Zealand with offices in London. MahiFX operates as a market maker providing continuous, dealable FX rates to retail customers that wish to trade on a margin/leveraged basis.

Due to CFTC regulations MahiFX is unable to accept account applications from residents of the USA or its citizens, and there is no Islamic account available. MahiFX offers customers the same spreads FX institutional traders have access to with no added extras, no minimum deposits and no minimum trade size.

Although there is no minimum deposit required to open a MahiFX account, your account balance will limit the amount of trades you can execute. The maximum trade size with MahiFX is generally 5 mio units of the left hand side currency, but this varies by pair and timezone.
