I appreciate ActivTrades has Metatrader as their trading platform. I want to try branded indicators and add-ons and I wonder if it is free for clients?

I can say that while trading with this broker, I did not have any serious problems. Of course, I had few questions when I first started trading.
I asked all these questions to customer service and got comprehensive answers. I think this is nice broker and can be recommended to other traders.

I like the Activtrader platform a lot. It has some unique taste to it, especially for those who are too used to metatrader.
Who needs MT when you have Activtrader?(͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

What does a 500USD minimum deposit mean? Do I always have to deposit at least 500?

I trade using the activ trader, and it is packed with features that help me with my analysis and free training on how to use them. I don't see myself leaving this broker at any point. The broker is simply excellent.

My favorite broker. So far, this broker has been perfect, and although I know there has to be something that the broker doesn't do excellently, I've not found it yet. I am not a novice trader, and I can confidently say this broker is suitable for both newbies and experts as well.

I read about ActivTrades branded indicators and add-ons and now thinking about install smartpattern, but I'm not good at it. Does it has a manual or smth?
You paid attention to these smart tools. It's awesome. Yeah, there is a manual right on the website. If being more precise, then check out 'SmartPattern' section on the website. There is a manual, where all the peculiarities of interaction with this tool are described.

I chose Activtrades because I can trade CFDs instruments, but with some twist, in a good way. As far as I understand, all of the instruments are available in CFD, which is an amazing thing. I like leverage trading, especially Activtrades leverage trading. Broker has the perfect level of leverage on all asset classes, except cryptocurrencies and shares. Crypto is too dangerous for high leverage trading and CFDs on shares always have diverse leverage, depending on the specific stock.

Although Activtrades stocks have low leverage, they have another advantage instead. If you trade stocks you will get extra profit from holding a long position. As if you’re a real shareholder. These payments are presented in various modes: dividends, stock split, takeover bid etc.
How cool is that? There is even a strategy when a trader buys stocks right before the Ex-dividend date. Receives the dividends and sells the stocks.

This tactic can be applied at Activtrades potentially. You open a long position on shares a couple of days before the dividend date and then close the order after dividends are paid.
However I didn’t try it myself to be 100% sure that it will work as I described. Be aware that it only works with long positions! If you open a short deal, the dividend amount will be charged from your deposit.
I don’t understand how Activtrades is doing it, I mean I realize how stocks and dividends work in the stock market. But from my knowledge forex brokers don’t have access to the shares liquidity. Maybe Activtrades has, in the end it’s one of the top brokers in the industry.
It would be so cool if I really own the stock if I buy it at Activtrades. Because I would be able to print the real, physical copy of it, frame it and put it on the wall xD

I have recently found your site and I’m interested in trading currencies here. I like spreads. I want to know one crucial thing. Do you charge fees?

I trade with Activtrades for half a year and everything is just fine. Nice conditions, well optimized trading platfroms and branded indicators as a pleasant addition. But to be honest Metatrader 4 turns out very hard to master for me, so I decided to try ActivTrader or MT5

I like fact that I can study videos from broker's experts and trade on platform at the same time. After watching each training video, my trading improves noticeably! Soon I will be able to become professional trader thanks to ActivTrades' training program 😎

This morning I had desire to write detailed review of activtrades broker. Well, let's get started!
My review is for newbies ;) That's why I will try to remember everything that will be useful for beginners.

What does trader who just came to market look for? Of course, he looks for tutorials, educational videos, and webinars. Activtrades provides all of this in one place.
Company's website, as well as some other resources, has educational videos about trading. All of them are easy to watch and easy to remember. I'm sure that such education format is very modern and suitable for most traders.
For those who can't set up platform properly and can't handle support tools, broker is ready to provide Educational Manuals. In fact, they will be helpful to all traders. Yes, by the way, this section contains manuals on tools setup and usage. Special tools and applications can be installed on platform. They improve quality of trading. I advise everyone to install them on platform!
One more useful way of training is broker's Educational Events. Feel free to sign up for nearest webinar! List of upcoming webinars can be found on broker's website.

I guess this is all! I think activtrades really cares about its customers and makes it well!

Actually, I want to state that Activtrades webinars are a unique thing that I’ve never seen before. The broker is keeping up with the times really.

ActivTrades has recommended itself as the most reliable broker on the market. I at least, during my trading career I have never faced such amount of licenses, regulations, certifications and awards.
