activtrades is well regulated broker but unfortunately so limited on payment methods
i think they really aware about money laundry issue thing that is why they did not use any electronic payment processor
available payment method only Wire transfer and using Credit Card which may cause not much of traders interesting open account with them because the withdrawal process will took longer and fees is high
I am very disappointed from ActiveTrades. Between shortest times they forced me to close my positions with big loss. The announced change of leverage from 400:1 to 25:1 was only within two weeks. This is not the way like you treat good customers. Be clever and avoid this broker.
Here is the mail from ActiveTrades:
ActivTrades would like to announce that the following currency pairs will be subject to a greater margin requirement: EURCHF, AUDCHF, CHFJPY, CADCHF, GBPCHF, USDCHF and NZDCHF. The permitted leverage will be 1/8 of the standard margin on your account as of Wednesday 20th June at 19:00 CET and 1/16 from Wednesday 27th June at 19:00 CET.
For example, an account with leverage of 400:1 will provide 50:1 leverage on the noted currency pairs above from Wednesday 20Th and 25:1 leverage from 27th June.
Please check your positions and consider the effect this change will have on your margin requirement and trade out level.
I have used ActivTrades for a few months and so far so good. I have also heard about other traders who are currently quite happy with the broker. The support tem is also always happy to help.
I am not sure about what Lesly are saying above, but this kind of stuff have never happend to me, but then again I am mostly a news trader and don’t use EAs.
I trade with them on STP account. I try to trust them because they are UK based broker FSA regulated and STP.
First month going with them just some trade and there show a small profit on it . Then I start with news and scalping strategies use own trendline. First some week all trade going well and come a day they froze the plarform or keep my order uncanceld wait untill this will be a lose trade. I do there 30 % profit and 75% lose trade. For this kind of trades are no good also the spread was strangly changed and all my trade stert to lose. Anyvay when I withdrawal money everytime they late, UK bank transfer one week. Quet long time!
When I withdrawal all my money they immediately called me”Are everything OK with me or I think something else. I need to said yes everything OK, they ask me before they start to send for me the money.
