ActivTrades mission: To maximise client’s trading potential through competitive prices, cutting edge industry technologies, innovations and tools, reliability and outstanding customer service.
ActivTrades is an independent broker offering trading services in Forex, CFDs and Spread Betting.
Located in the City of London‘s financial district they are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and registered with its fellow national constituents across the European Union. ActivTrades is also affiliated with the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) which gives protection to clients investing with its member firms. All client funds are held in segregated accounts and may not be used by ActivTrades for any other purpose than to support your trading.
ActivTrades offers a wide range of products, aimed at both private and institutional investors. Through the powerful and globally respected MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 platforms, you are able to trade over forty currency pairs in the Spot Forex market, alongside indices, gold, silver, oil, and other commodities.
Forex trading is competitive and precise with their 5 decimal digit pricing, spreads from 0.8 pips in EURUSD and maximum leverage available at 1:400. By trading minilots and microlots (minimum stake of 10p per point on Spread Betting) you are able to enhance money management. Their deal execution systems are fully automated; there is no dealing desk, and therefore no human intervention, resulting in fairer execution of your trades.
Unquestionably ActivTrades focus is on its clients, and the service they require in order to succeed. Their highly skilled support desk is operational 24 hours a day, 5 days a week, providing timely response to client enquiries in English, Italian, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, Bulgarian, Russian and Chinese throughout the day.
ActivTrades offers over 40 currency pairs, metals, indices, commodities, shares and financials. All available through the powerful and globally respected MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader5 trading platforms (also available on the most widely used mobile devices).
On currencies, the spreads start at 0.8 pips and our market execution ensures there are no re-quotes or delays, even during volatile market conditions.
Their CFDs of indices, commodities and financials are available from 0.5 pips spreads and based on futures contracts which expire on a specific date, meaning there will be no overnight adjustments as the underlying Futures price already accounts for these. Upon expiry any open positions will be automatically closed out at the closing price of the relevant contract; to continue trading in the instrument you need only re-open the position in the new contract date.
On CFDs, shares are available from 0.04% commission per side. For UK based clients, spread betting on shares is commission free, with 0.10% of the transaction value factored in to the spread.
