OctaFX announces partnership with PERSIB, Indonesia.

We have breaking news for our traders community – today, February 24, 2014, OctaFX held a press conference in Bandung, Indonesia, to announce the beginning of sponsorship for PERSIB – one of the most prominent football clubs in Indonesian League.

With more than 40 reporters from the local media and PERSIB higher management present, OctaFX representative and Persib Bandung officials signed a sponsorship agreement, as to confirm OctaFX is now a proud sponsor of PERSIB in the season 2014.

PERSIB’s way to success started in 1933, March 14, when the club was founded by merging several entities into one. After performing three times as runner-up in State Competition 1933 in Surabaya, 1934 in Bandung, and 1936 in Solo, PERSIB became champion for the first time in 1939 in Solo.

Since its establishment, PERSIB Bandung has won various trophies, namely:

* President Cup State Competition First Division in 1986, 1990, 1994
* President Cup Indonesian League Competition I in 1994-1995
* Indonesian Super League U-21 in 2010

For OctaFX this day will go down in history as a significant event. We consider Persib to be one of our most spectacular investments. By becoming the official sponsor of Persib Bandung, OctaFX demonstrates that global business can become truly local. We strongly believe in the development of sports activities in Indonesia and are happy to be the part of it.

"From now on OctaFX is excited to share PERSIB's glorious moments and make our contribution for the club's success" - highlighted our company representative.

Several Persib officials also made short welcoming statements. Kuswara S. Taryono, Comissioner of PERSIB Bandung, started with a heartwarming words: “We are thankful and grateful for the trust OctaFX put into PERSIB. We hope this partnership can be beneficial to both parties".

PERSIB Director, Risha Adi Widjaya, expressed a wish to proceed the cooperation in the coming seasons, and as an answer OctaFX team expresses a hope that this partnership will lead both OctaFX and Persib to even more astonishing accomplishments, and both will achieve new goals.

Stay tuned to hear from the prominent players of PERSIB – I Made Wirawan, Firman Utina and Atep – as they will share some thoughts on motivation and dreams that eventually came true.

OctaFX King of the Road Real Contest


This is an amazing live account contest from OctaFX!

Trade and become a true king of the road with brand new Porsche Panamera. Deposit to your account today, register for the contest and let the most proficient trader win!

How to take part in the contest

Click here to join the contest now! All you need is a live account.

That's all, you are now a contestant on your way to the grand prize!

What matters most?

In general, it's all about pips and winning. No matter how much you deposit, each profitable trade brings you contest points! More winning pips — more points. The contestant with the highest number of points is the winner! Contest points depend on 3 things:

Profitable and losing pips you gain

The more positive pips you get, the higher your position is.

Pips price

Obviously trading currency pairs with higher risks and volatility gains you more points than trading usual majors

Account gain

Again, the more profit a trader gets — the more chances to win he/she has.

How do we calculate the points?

Your points score consists of 2 parts:

Gain points: maximum 100 points

Pips points: maximum 100 points

So, the maximum total score you can get is 200 points.

Gain part

If you have the highest account gain amongst the contestants — you get 100 points.

If you are 2nd or lower — you get a percent — based difference between the leader's gain and your own gain. Here is how it's calculated:

Your gain points = (Your account gain / Leader's account gain) * 100.

Pips part

If you have the highest pips part amongst the contestants — you get 100 points.

Pips part = (profitable pips - losing pips) * pip factor.

If you are 2nd or lower — you get a percent — based difference between the leader's gain and your own gain. Here is how it's calculated:

Your pips points = (Your pips part / Leader's pips part) * 100.

It is also crucial to know that different trading tools bring different number of points. In general trading exotic pairs with higher spread is more risky, but it brings more points. Alternatively, trading majors, like EURUSD, is less risky and has lower spread, but it gains you less points.

What is a pip factor?
It is a coefficient which is applied to your points, depending in the currency pairs you trade. As you probably know, different currency pairs have different volatility, margin, spread, and therefore different risks. So it's quite obvious that higher risks gain higher points. Just the same as market realities. Here is a table of pip factor values for various currency pairs:

Currency pair Pip factor
For all the other currency pairs not mentioned in the table, the pip factor value = 1
Contest stats and monitoring

The whole contest and each of the accounts is monitored on the contest page here. All the results are updated in real-time, so the picture is always up-to-date. You can also view all the account stats, trading history, charts and other features available in all the OctaFX contests and monitoring.

This contest does not depend on your balance; whether you have 100 USD or 1 million, your chances are equal. So you can easily hide your financial stats when you register in the contest.

Best winning strategy

The best winning strategy is profitable and stable trading. This contest does not depend on your balance, whether you have 100 USD or 1 million, your chances are equal.

OctaFX di mata saya

Sudah sekitar 6 bulan ini saya fokus trading di OctaFX. Forex bukanlah hal baru bagi saya, saya sudah kenal dengan forex sejak tahun 2008. Berbagai broker forex sudah saya coba, mulai dari yang memberlakukan prosedur deposit/wd yang sulit hingga yang deposit/withdrawal cukup dengan bank lokal.

Sampai suatu saat saya ketemu dengan OctaFX. Oh ya, saya tau OctaFX dari salah satu rekan saya sesama trader. Awalnya saya ragu untuk join dan trading dengan OctaFX, melihat OctaFX tergolong broker baru. namun, atas desakan dan rekomendasi rekan saya, akhirnya saya mencoba untuk join langsung real akun di OctaFX.

Berikut ini beberapa hal menarik tentang OctaFX di mata saya berdasarkan pengalaman saya trading di OctaFX terhitung sejak agustus 2013 lalu. ok, langsung saja ya

1. Proses Registrasi dan Verifikasi akun Mudah

Proses Registrasi dan Verifikasi adalah hal yang umum dilakukan saat akan mendaftar di sebuah perusahaan broker forex online. Untuk menghindari akun palsu atau akun fiktif, terkadang pihak broker menggunakan kebijakan prosedur yang bisa dikatakan rumit, misalnya harus pakai koneksi internet dengan IP publik sendiri, harus scan surat pernyataan lalu dikirim via email dan sebagainya.

Lain halnya dengan OctaFX, proses Registrasi sangat mudah, bisa dilakukan kapan saja asal terhubung dengan internet. Dan untuk proses verifikasi, kita bisa mengirimkan scan KTP dan SIM. Saya sendiri waktu verifikasi hanya mengirimkan scan KTP dan SIM dan keesokan harinya akun saya sudah berubah jadi Verified. Ternyata cukup mudah Registrasi dan verifikasi di OctaFX :)

Tips agar verifikasi tidak ditolak (reject):

Scan KTP, hasilnya harus jelas. Kalau tidak jelas, rawan untuk di-reject. Gunakan file scan KTP untuk data Identitas
Scan SIM, SIM akan digunakan untuk data Address Proof. Bisa juga menggunakan bukti tagihan listrik, telepon atau rekening air asal nama dan alamat sama dengan KTP.

2. Tersedia Beberapa Jenis akun

Tidak semua trader punya modal besar, apalagi yang baru mulai terjun di dunia forex. Adanya berbagai jenis akun memberikan pilihan para trader untuk bisa memulai trading di OctaFX. Jadi, pemilihan jenis akun yang sesuai akan memberikan kenyamanan bagi trader untuk memulai aktivitas tradingnya bersama OctaFX.


Pilihlah jenis akun sesuai dengan modal anda. Jika anda baru dan belum punya dasar sama sekali tentang forex, alangkah baiknya mencoba di akun Demo dulu, OctaFX menyediakan akun demo juga kok.
Oh ya sampai lupa, OctaFX menyediakan pilihan akun SWAP FREE (bebas bunga) bagi anda yang tidak mengendaki adanya bunga dalam aktifitas trading anda di OctaFX. Saya sendiri menyebut Akun Islami untuk akun yang SWAP FREE :)

3. Eksekusi Cepat

Sejauh ini, untuk urusan eksekusi, OctaFX memang tergolong cepat. Dengan kecepatan koneksi internet saya yang hanya sekitar 128 kbps, proses eksekusi order di OctaFX rata-rata sekitar 1-3 detik, tergolong cepat menurut saya. Ada cerita lucu yang pernah saya alami, saya pernah melakukan close order namun order saya tidak bisa di close. Usut punya usut, ternyata paket data internet saya sudah habis, hasilnya koneksi internet saya putus. wajar saja saya jadi tidak bisa close order hahahahaha


Koneksi internet dan kondisi market sangat mempengaruhi kecepatan eksekusi/transaksi. Sebelum komplain, alangkah baiknya kita periksa dulu kondisi saat kita mengalami/kesulitan meng-eksekusi order. Bisa saja pas ada berita fundamental yang berefek besar atau mungkin koneksi internet anda putus seperti yang pernah saya alami Winking

4. No Requote

Transaksi (order BUY/SELL) di OctaFX memang no requote, setidaknya itu yang selama ini saya alami. Tapi, ada tapinya loh Winking , bukan berarti mutlak No Requote. Lha kok?

Begini, kondisi market kan tidak setiap hari sepi dan tidak setiap hari ramai. Bahkan ada yang menyebut hari-hari tertentu sebagai hari ramai dan hari-hari tertentu sebagai hari sepi. Maksud ramai dan sepi disini adalah ramai/sepi order, jadi bisa dikatakan yang trading hanya sedikit.

Saya sediri pernah mengalami yang namanya Requote di OctaFX, waktu itu pas momen ada news besar yaitu NFP (Non Farm Payroll). Siapa sih yang tidak kenal dengan news NFP, news yang terkenal dengan volatilitasnya yang sangat besar bisa 100-200 pip. Apakah saya kaget waktu dapat Requote? padahal kan di website OctaFX dijelaskan kalau trading di OctaFX no requote.

Saya sama sekali tidak kaget, namun saya menyesal karena terpaksa order saat market sibuk, padahal jika saya yakin dengan analisa saya dan order sebelum news rilis, mungkin saya tidak akan kena requote Winking


No Requote pada dasarnya bisa saja terjadi asal kondisi market memang mendukung. Tapi kita juga harus ingat, kalau market lagi sibuk dan kebajiran order, jangan marah kalau kena requote. bahkan ada beberapa kata bijak dari master trader “hindari news”. mungkin maksudnya menghindari news agar tidak kena requote kali ya Winking

5. Spread Rendah

Spread di OctaFX menurut saya adalah yang paling rendah, untuk pair mayor seperti EUR/USD, rata-rata spreadnya adalah 0,2 – 0,4 pips. Apakah nilai spread ini pasti, ternyata tidak. Pada suatu waktu, saya pernah mengalami spread di OctaFX melebar. Apakah saya kaget? sekali lagi, saya tidak kaget.

Kenapa spread bisa melebar?

Spread melebar biasanya disebabkan adanya lonjakan order atau market sedang kebanjiran order atau saat ada news high impact seperti NFP (Non Farm Payrol) yang menyebabkan harga bergerak sangat cepat dan liar. Kejadian yang terjadi pada saya adalah saat ada news NFP dan saya melakukan transaksi beberapa detik setelah news rilis.

Hasilnya bisa ditebak, baru saja open posisi langsung minus cukup banyak karena spread melebar, belum lagi kena requote Sad . Dan pending order saya pun tereksekusi di harga yang tidak sesuai dengan yang sudah saya setting atau biasa disebut dengan istilah Slippage, pending order saya seperti loncat dari settingan harga yang seharusnya.

Jadi menurut saya, jika kondisi mendukung (market sedang landai), spread OctaFX adalah yang paling rendah untuk pair mayor seperti EUR/USD, setidaknya itulah yang saya alami. Dan saat ada news besar, wajar jika spread melebar. Disinilah kadang kita tidak terima karena spread melar dan menyalahkan broker, padahal jika kita mau sedikit belajar, kenyataannya market itu bergerak dinamis, kadang sepi order, kadang ramai order. Bahkan tidak jarang muncul GAP saat ada berita penting yang membuat harga bergerak liar :)


Slippage sangat mungkin terjadi jika kita memasang pending order dengan tujuan untuk menjaring momen di saat akan rilis news besar karena sudah pasti spread akan melebar. Saran saya, mending menunggu news rilis dulu baru open posisi atau menunggu market jelas arah trend-nya. Oh ya, spread melebar itu wajar, tergantung kondisi market. Yang tidak wajar adalah jika kondisi sedang sepi tapi spread melebar, nah ini baru mencurigakan.

6. Tersedia akun bebas bunga/swap (akun islami)

Bagi kita yang tidak menghendaki adanya bunga (swap) dalam aktifitas trading, OctaFX menyediakan fasilitas akun Bebas Bunga (Swap Free). Fasilitas akun Swap Free biasa disebut juga sebagai akun Islami :)

7. Deposit dan Withdrawal bisa langsung via Bank Lokal

Inilah salah satu alasan saya join di OctaFX. Saya sudah beberapa kali gonta ganti broker, tujuan saya bukan karena tidak puas dengan suatu broker melainkan untuk mencari broker yang benar-benar mempermudah aktivitas trading saya. Dulu, sewaktu Liberty Reserve (LR) masih jaya, untuk deposit/withdrawal bisa via LR dan langsung masuk ke kabinet trading atau ke akun LR kita jika kita withdrawal. Namun, saat LR dinyatakan SCAM, rasanya seperti sambaran petir di siang bolong yang cerah ceria.

Waktu itu saya sudah bingung, walaupun saya belum pernah menggunakan LR sebagai metode payment gateway untuk deposit dan withdrawal di broker yang saya pakai sbelumnya. Waktu itu saya pakai paypal, dan paypal juga tidak menyelesaikan masalah, bahkan jauh lebih ribet daripada pakai LR, karena saya punya paypal tapi tidak punya Credit Card. Jadi, kalau mau deposit harus beli balance paypal dulu.

Tapi itu semua adalah cerita yang sudah lalu, sebagai pengalaman saja. Sejak tau kalau OctaFX bisa deposit via bank lokal (waktu itu hanya OctaFX satu-satunya), saya pun sangat antusias untuk mencoba.

Tapi ada yang mengganjal di pikiran saya waktu pertama kali mencoba deposit, yaitu berapa lama deposit saya akan masuk ke kabinet trading saya?

Sepertinya keraguan dan kegelisahan saya terbayar sudah, saya deposit siang sekitar jam 12.00 dan langsung saya konfirmasikan. Tidak butuh waktu lama, kurang lebih sekitar 15 menit dana yang saya depositkan via bank lokal langsung masuk ke kabinet akun trading saya.

Nah itu untuk deposit, bagai mana dengan withdrawal, apakah secepat deposit juga?

Berdasarkan pengalaman saya, saya pernah withdrawal pada hari jum’at tengah malam dan dana withdrawal baru masuk ke rekening bank lokal saya pada hari senin sekitar jam 10.00 pagi. Loh kok lama?

Lamanya proses withdrawal yang saya alami mungkin dikarenakan faktor jam operasional kantor OctaFX, untuk perwakilan dari Indonesia jamnya adalah GMT+7 atau sekitar jam 12 siang sampai jam 8 malam. Coba cek lagi di website OctaFX, untuk office hour disana tertera jam dengan format GMT+2, untuk menyesuaikan dengan jam di Indonesia tinggal diganti GMT+7 atau tinggal ditambahkan/maju 5 jam. Jika kita melakukan aktifitas deposit/withdrawal diluar jam itu kemungkinan besar akan diproses keesokan harinya dan khusus untuk hari jum’at, kemungkinan akan di proses pada hari senin minggu berikutnya.

Dan saya juga pernah mencoba withdrawal lagi pada hari rabu sekita jam 7 malam, dan proses withdrawal tenyata juga cepat sekitar 20 menitan. Dana yang saya withdrawal langsung masuk ke rekening pribadi bank lokal yang saya pakai. Benar-benar mudah dan sangat membantu, karena kita tidak haru mencari exchanger untuk menukarkan ecurrency kita jika kita pakai ecurrency seperti web money, skrill, atau yang lainnya.


Sebelum melakukan deposit/withdrawal, pastikan kita deposit/withdrawal saat jam kantor OctaFX (untuk Indonesia gunakan format GMT +7), untuk lebih jelasnya bisa dilihat dihalaman website OctaFX bagian Kontak Kami, disitu tertulis office hour OctaFX. Dengan melakukan deposit/withdrawal saat jam kantor, maka proses deposit/withdrawal akan diproses jauh lebih cepat dibanding kita deposit/withdrawal diluar jam kerja kantor OctaFX.

8. Menggunakan 5 digit angka

OctaFX adalah broker 5 digit. Maksud broker 5 digit disini adalah digit angka yang digunakan dalam pair mata uang forex. Sebagai contoh EUR/USD 1.45367 (5 digit dibelakang koma/titik) dan EUR/USD 1.4536 (4 digit dibelakang koma/titik). Selain 5 digit, ada juga yang 4 digit. Yang membedakan adalah jumlah digit angka dan ke-presisian harga.

Dari tahun ke tahun, nilai uang yang berputar dipasar forex terus meningkat, hal inilah yang melahirkan jumlah digit angka yang sebelumnya 4 digit menjadi 5 digit. Seiring perkembangan itulah, broker harus up to date, sehingga broker-broker yang menngunakan 5 digit angka bisa dikatakan broker yang menyesuaikan dengan kondisi market saat ini.

Beberapa kelebihan broker 5 digit

Pergerakan harga lebih terlihat, digit terakhir bisa disebut angka dengan nilai sen/cent
Harga lebih presisi
9. Bebas menggunakan teknik trading

Anda seorang day trader?

Anda biasa scalping?

Anda suka teknik hedging? atau teknik-teknik trading lainnya?

Jangan khawatir, OctaFX tidak membatasi teknik trading yang akan anda digunakan. Mau scalping, hedging, mau open posisi pakai pending order dan sebagainya tidak dilarang di OctaFX. Saya sendiri terbiasa day trading, jadi saya lebih sering menentukan target profit dan loss sebelum open posisi. Namun, kadang saya juga suka scalping, tergantung mood Winking


Apapun teknik trading yang akan kita gunakan, jangan lupakan kondisi market dan money management. Meskipun broker membebaskan teknik trading yang kita gunakan, belum tentu kita bisa sukses profit jika kita mengabaikan kondisi market dan money management. Bahkan banyak yang bilang bahawa “market selalu benar” :)

10. Bonus Deposit mencapai 50%

Setiap deposit, kita bisa mengklaim bonus deposit. Bonus deposit yang diberikan OctaFX mencapai 50%. Bonus deposit ini akan dikreditkan menjadi Equity, ingat menjadi Equity bukan ditambahkan ke balance di kabinet akun trading kita. Dan bonus bisa di withdrawal apabila kita telah menyelesaikan beberapa syarat sesuai ketentuan yang berlaku di OctaFX. Jangan lupa, baca syarat dan ketentuan mengenai Bonus Deposit ini :)

Catatan Penting!

Berdasarkan pengalaman saya, bonus deposit dari OctaFX tidak dapat menahan floating posisi order kita yang minus. Jadi, jangan lupa memasang stop loss dan bijak Money Management kalau tidak ingin terkena Margin Call

11. Layanan Support Ramah dan Membantu

Kadang kendala bahasa membuat kita bingung saat menemui masalah. Di OctaFX, kita bisa meminta bantuan customer service saat kita mendapat kendala teknis atau kesulitan-kesulitan lainnya. Dan berita baiknya, customer service-nya ada juga lho yang dari Indonesia dan ramah-ramah lagi


Overall, OctaFX sangat recomended baik itu untuk trader pemula (seperti saya), maupun trader-trader yang sudah profesional. Beberapa fasilitas dan fitur trading yang ditawarkan sangat menarik dan bagus.

Kekurangannya adalah terkadang kondisi market membuat segala seuatunya keluar dari pakem, seperti terjadi requote, eksekusi yang lambat, spread melar, slippage dan lain sebainya. Namun, kekurangan ini sebatas karena market forex itu sendiri yang begitu dinamis dan sangat komplex.

Sekali lagi, jika ingin kemudahan dalam aktivitas trading, saya sangat merekomendasikan OctaFX sebagai mitra trading anda! :)

Berawal dari link dan kepercayaan - Grei (Indonesia)

Pertama kali saya kenal dan tahu forex sekitar tahun 2007 dari guru saya sewaktu sekolah. tetapi waktu itu saya tidak begitu tertarik bahkan tidak melirik sedikit pun. hingga akhirnya tahun 2011 kebetulan saya menginap di rumah teman saya. saya tidak sengaja melihat teman saya melakukan trading forex. sepanjang malam saya memperhatikan dia trading sehingga membuat saya tertarik untuk trading juga.

Setelah malam itu,begitu saya sampai dirumah saya langsung googling cara-cara dan aturan bisnis forex. dan sejak saat itulah saya terjun ke dunia forex dengan belajar secara otodidak.

Waktu tahun 2012 saya melihat website yang dikelola oleh bu nophie, didalamnya terdapat prediksi-prediksi forex. selama beberapa bulan saya mengamati ternyata memiliki akurasi yang tinggi. saya lalu bergabung di groupnya di facebook. suatu ketika beliau mempromosikan OctaFX dan beliau berkata ada no deposit $8. syarat-syaratnya pun tidak terlalu berat. saya segera klik link OctaFX nya lalu saya mendaftar di OctaFX.

Proses pendaftarannya pun tergolong cepat dan bonus depositnya juga segera masuk begitu di verify. awal-awal trading di OctaFX saya sangat ragu kalau profit dari no deposit bisa di withdraw. tapi keraguan saya berusaha saya hilangkan karena ini yang promosi adalah bu nophie yang mana saya suka mengikuti analisa beliau dan saya pernah belajar beberapa ebook nya.

2 minggu berlalu dari $8 jadi $80 dollar dengan floating sekitar $20an tetapi karena saya sudah tidak sabar dan masih timbul rasa penasaran yang besar sekali untuk membuktikan apakah profit bisa di withdraw atau tidak, saya close semua posisi saya dan saya withdraw semua profitnya. ternyata bisa di withdraw! dan yang paling mengesankan lagi, withdrawnya pun tidak sampai 2 jam.

Sampai saat ini menurut saya OctaFX memang broker yang recomended!
