CTrader platform is continually improved and I personally find it to be user friendly and easy to use. MT4 platform is good too and has many more features but sometimes difficult to navigate around. CTrader is quite good for fast execution and reversing trades etc. which is very convenient for people who trade the 1 minute charts. One draw-back for CTrader platform is that it can not be used on a mac. If CTrader can be designed for the mac would be really good too.
We use FXPRO as a broker and trade some accounts through Ctrader platform, I personally find it very very good, the thought that has gone into the platform and design is excellent if you know what a retail FX trader needs, if you are not an experienced trader you may not understand how good the platform is, the only negative I have is that sometimes it can freeze or go slow during high impact news events, apart from that it is faultless and if you plan ahead for the events by setting auto stop losses and take profit levels the platform is faultless. Most platform show some time out during some high impact news at some time and nothing is perfect but Ctrader is close and offers a competitive alternative to MT4. If I could change anything it would be to have an auto copy function available through FXPRO which is their choice not Ctraders
Professional platform equipped with advanced features for trading managment. Even if it could be improved in some aspects, especially in the mobile version (such as time required to establish connection with server), I think it remains one of best tools to trade in forex.
Everybody with their choices, but some choices are better than some. if your choice of platform is cTrader then you've made the best choice. For me other platforms are like cartoon or toy if compared to cTrader, ctrader platform is too advanced.
Fantastic platform! Very intuitive and easy to learn. Robots developed in cAlgo can be run in cTrader as well. ECN/STP with direct market access. No trading desk. They put traders first and listening to the community of traders to improve it even more with regular updates. Built on new technology from the ground up. Total transparency from both sides and with a extreme fast execution model. Low spread offered by all the liquid providers sign up with brokers.
Someone from another forum said, MT4 is a toy for scam. CTrader for Real traders. MT4 is manipulable by brokers CTrader is transparent to both sides. The MM (market maker) made ​​many bandits and thieves.
Good Platform but unable to change the black screen colors make it difficult to use. Once they add the ability to use colour scheme's then I might go back to using it Has many great features should be the FX System of the future
