ActivTrades Reviews

35 reviews of ActivTrades are presented here. All reviews represent only their author's opinion, which is not necessarily based on the real facts.

, Malaysia.

Conditions are quite good and the regulation is also on the level. Seems to be a reliable broker.

, Germany.

I like that ActivTrades is not a boring broker :)

I mean, apart from brokerage services, ActivTrades provides several other services to help traders succeed.

Broker might not have to do that. Nobody expects this kind of help from company. But ActivTrades has decided to help its customers, and that's amazing!

, Italy.

I found out recently that ActivTrade broker allows its clients to earn from long positions on stocks. It's like getting dividends, but not exactly.

Because you don’t actually become a shareholder of the company. Also you can arrange your trading plan according to the earnings calendar. Nice!

, Thailand.

This broker is good to trade traditional assets such as currencies cuz it offers attractive spreads and charges no fees. If you don’t like its custom platform, you may turn to MTs. A not very good choice of cryptos is probably the only downside of this broker, at least for me.

, Spain.

There are a couple of exclusive indicators that are worth checking out on activtrades;

1. Pivot points

2. Smart Template

Pivot points are often used to predict market movement by professional traders. The famous indicator was developed by ActivTrades for MetaTrader 5 and MetaTrader 4, with several levels of support and resistance.

On the other hand, the SmartTemplate offers simple but highly effective features. By putting the chart signals into context with trend strength, it indicates unique long and short trading opportunities.

, Germany.

I have been trading with ActivTrades for about half a year and everything looks normal. I like broker's conditions and appreciate they have Metatrader 4 trading platform.

But I had an issue with installing SmartPattern indicator, seemed quite tough. Nevertheless support team helped to figure out.

.

smart lines, smart templates... oh my gosh. please, find for me some time to dive deep in the sense of these tools. I am far from them, as I haven't got enough experience in trading.

anyway, if I got it right, these tools are quite useful for all traders. if it's correct, then my praise.

broker, perhaps, has made lots of efforts before it created such a product and proposed it for the clients.

, Spain.

ActivTrades is a fantastic broker. I want to point out one feature, though; the MT add-ons. These add-ons might just give you the edge you need in the market to be successful, as there are several of them. I always trade using the add-ons to boost my technical analysis on MT5.

, Germany.

I thought demo account differs from other ones but it turned out that it's just an ordinary demo platform... It's not bad, as demo platform exists only for one purpose. Do various manipulations with your strategy. I suppose no traders would scold brokers for the lack of "exclusive" conditions on demo acc, because it doesn't matter at all for the most part of advanaced traders.

But, live account is something that matters a lot. There are tons of unique features on a live account, like smart tools and stuff like that. Explore and enjoy, guys.

, Indonesia.

I was so excited about the activtrades broker. Everything looked perfect: trading conditions, reliability and even my favorite metatrader 5 was available. Everything except the minimum deposit amount. I’m not sure if I want to fund 500 bucks from the beginning. I have to think about it.

, Mexico.

Trading conditions are not very important to me. Although I'm sure, ActivTrades has excellent trading conditions. I'm not experienced enough to open a lot of trades yet. I don't have complete market control yet.

What's more important to me now is how broker supports newbies. ActivTrades is doing great job!

Thanks to educational materials provided by broker, I learned something new every day. I spend all my free time practicing on demo account to trade without serious mistakes.

Soon I will write review about how I got great profits!

, Spain.

I was so enthusiastic about activtrades until the moment I realized that I have to reserve $500 to be able to trade with it. The broker offers great trading opportunities, but I know brokers that have slightly worse trading conditions for much more reasonable minimum depo. So right now I’m hesitant about this company.

, Brazil.

I have had an account at ActivTrades since 2019, when I started my forex studies, I started to trade in a real account, whenever I needed it, I got a good service from the support, very fast. Once I needed information about latency, and Rodrigo Lima, currently Director of ActivTrades in Brazil, responded promptly and satisfactorily. I have no reason to discredit the Company!

, Sweden.

I got the impression that they are pure scamers. I deposited minimal amount with 0,1 lot and performed several successful deals, each deal had a small profit. When I started 1 lot trading, everything was fine, but only a first day. Then the nightmare has begun. I started accumulating more than 2000 on my account and order execution became much longer! Some deals were processed in about 7 minutes after the request to close it and it usually took about 3-4 minutes to open them. As the result, I started suffering huge losses due to such delays in execution. When there left some small sum and I switched to 0,1 lot again, it didn't stabilize the situation. I was told by support service that everything was normal by them and I had some problems with internet connection and hardware, but it sounds ridiculously because I had trading with several brokers at the same time, and everything was relatively normal by them. So I have made my conclusion. Unfair manipulations when a trader starts profiting is obvious. I suggest to stay away from them, but if you want to lose your money, go ahead.

, serbia.

I advised , FCA registration , good broker, tight spreads, good support

Forex trading bears intrinsic risks of loss. You must understand that Forex trading, while potentially profitable, can make you lose your money. Never trade with the money that you cannot afford to lose! Trading with leverage can wipe your account even faster.

CFDs are leveraged products and as such loses may be more than the initial invested capital. Trading in CFDs carry a high level of risk thus may not be appropriate for all investors.
