ForexBrokerz.com has given Unions Market a rating of 1 out of 5, indicating that it is not a reputable forex broker. Their reasons: Unions Market claims to be a leader in online trading but lacks proper licensing and regulation. It is an offshore broker with no guaranteed funds or segregated accounts. Unions Market is owned and operated by an offshore company based in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, with little corporate background information available. Unregulated brokers like Unions Market are considered risky, and it is advised to deal with properly licensed brokers for the safety of funds.
Moreover, Unions Market’s withdrawal policy is vague and the trading platform offered appears cheap and not credible. Payment methods are limited to an obscure third-party provider, further raising suspicions of being a scam. Overall, Unions Market is not recommended for trading.

STAY AWAY!!! In any case, readers should not add more money to their account. The company will not return your initial investment unless it is a tactic to gain your trust and steal more money from you at a later time.
Scamwatcher.com also has a Unions Market page, in which the following comment can be found:
I invested 50,000 euros in my trade account with UNIONS MARKET. Brokers named MILAN KNEZ AND NIKOLA MARTINOVIC traded for me, and the balance grew to 300,000 euros. However, now they are not giving me my money back […] Transactions from my trade account were processed through BINANCE, involving buying BTC with a bank card. There have been 13 transactions through Binance from 01.10.2021 to 14.03.2022. I had to constantly invest more because they threatened that I would lose everything, and now I have indeed lost everything.
