There are two main types of accounts that traders open with VIBHS:
Demo Account – this free account includes USD10,000 (probably – we could not register our demo account properly and the account balance was zero). The demo account offers access to all the same features as the Real Account. You can try your strategies here before implementing them into the real account.
Real Account – there is only one real account type available and the minimum required deposit for it is USD200. After funding the minimal amount of money, the real account will be activated. Keep in mind that all profits and loss here are real.
What Type of Broker the Company Is?
VIBHS claims on its webpage that it uses the Straight Through Processing (STP) model to execute the customers’ orders. This means that VIBHS transmits each client’s order to the liquidity providers. The company also claims it does nothing with the orders and uses Direct Market Access (DMA) to match them. In this case, the market is the pool of liquidity providers, which are 15 large banks or market makers. The company also says that the STP model it offers means clients are anonymous when their orders are executed.
The company does not charge any fees on deposits or withdrawals. There are no commissions on trades either.
Deposits and Withdrawals
VIBHS Financial usually processes deposits within 2 to 24 hours and process withdrawals within one business day of receiving a valid request. Clients can use several deposits methods such as bank transfers and credit/debit cards.
Trading is available on both desktop (Windows) and mobile (iOS and Android). MetaTrader 4 (MT4) is one of the most popular and trusted trading terminals that has become an industry standard. It is a user-friendly platform, which provides advanced technology and enhanced security to trade. The terminal is customizable enough, allowing traders to open multiple screens at once with preferred technical indicators. It also offers one-click trading and multiple account management (MAM).

As a provider of deep liquidity, VIBHS encourages Introducing Brokers (IBs) and assesses them as an important element of their business, as they provide important feedback about the quality of the VIBHS services and customer satisfaction.
White Label partnership is also available.
VIBHS is an FCA regulated, STP brokerage company, which provides the latest trading technology with functionality and a wide range of trading instruments. Traders have access to an intuitive platform, economic calendar, and customer service. Opening an account is relatively easy but using the demo account is buggy and not complete. To start trading you must invest at least USD200 via bank transfer or by credit card. Withdrawals are processed within one business day if the account is verified.
