I couldn't trade with this broker. I had a standard account with a 100$ first deposit. The platform MetaTrader 4 has delays all day, not only during volatility time. After I called their support team they said they just changed the server and will fix the problem. After the second month and a loss of 300$, trading major pairs EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/CAD, USD/JPY I closed my account.

I have been trading with Activtrades for almost 4 months now and things were okay. Have opened small micro account and ave me 10% bonus. But all of the sudden, every trade for the last month has gone significantly negative. Account balance changes happened without notification. Spreads have widened EURUSD up to 5 and GBPCHF up to 10. Execution used to be great, now delays for no reason and requotes when the market isn't even moving.. It didn't take long for me to realize they had changed for the worse, and I have wanted to close my account. I emailed the support but they are terrible in every way. They have been delaying my request and tired of my emails got ignored.

I was trading with ActivTrades only for 2 months and 2 weeks, because it is very unstable and they changes the trading conditions constantly without notifying me. At the first time, all the trading process run according to their trading conditions, the spreads are fixed from 0.5 pips and I can make a payment via credit and debit cards. But last week I feel the the spreads going floating and I must make a deposit via international wire transfer. Besides the platform it has some delays and freezing during the big news feed. I contacted the support team asking about the conditions but their answer was really disappointing and unfriendly. In my opinion, if they are changes the trading conditions constantly without notifying traders its a a big wrong and what a scam broker did. I hope my problem will be fixed s soon as possible because after that I'll close my account.

I am dealings a premium account at ActivTrades borker since July 2017. I have used to trade MT4 Platform, which is so complex and froze most of the time, Sometimes my TP and SL didn't work on the platform. Here my no one trade didn't execute in the proper position. I think their spread is very exclusive in the market, always I get negative slippage too. As yesterday I have opened a position where I have found 70 pip spreads during nfps. So I think I have to go a another broker and I make a withdrawal request to return back invest with a profit of amount $560 via Neteller last week. But today I received I email where they said they have been canceled my transaction. Now I also think to make a complaint to their regulator FCA .

I was definitely have losses with ActivTrades even after a year with them. I worked on demo account almost a month and after comfortable I started again trading activities via the real account. Initially, I dumbed $500 to start trading and definitely money has gone due to unprofitable trades. I think it might due to lack of experiences while at the same time I have implemented all skills and good trading plan acquired by expert forex group. I keep on trade and again deposited $500 into account. Along the way while using the platform I figured out repeated frozen of platform and inconsistent charges of spread and other fees especially on EUR/USD pair. Then, I only realized what they have done to my money when I just got a profit nearly to $700. They closed all transaction and blocked all trading system. They are disaster and stole trader’s money. Be aware with this broker!!

No problems with this broker so far. Its speed of execution is great, my orders are placed in 1 second. Also, I have received good earnings from my trading here. Spreads in major currencies are from 1 pip and the broker allows several types of strategies to trade. The support team is very dedicated to clients. They reply my emails very fast and solve problems in the best way possible.

I’ve been trading in forex almost 3 years and I never get problem like activtrades. Their Mt4 platform have major drawback in term of execution and also not stable make the platform crash after 4 hours running the platform. It will be worst when it comes with market that have high volatility it will easily freeze and make you loss your position if you want to close the profit position manually. I’m only make one time deposit because I would like to try their system first and to see if it suit with my trading style but my initial deposit almost margin call because of this problem and their support don’t even want to help you at all. Overall I’m not recommend this broker if there any trader want to their services.

5 month ago I was recommended ActivTrades broker by my sister, but now I want recommend this broker to all traders that willing to make money. In ActivTrades , I can trade without many complicated numbers and settings and withdrawal process also get well as promised. Yesterday I make withdrawal request and my withdrawal of USD300 were smooth through international wire transfer. In every trading of course there are some problem and I got it even in this broker. But my problem when the withdrawal of money is settled very quickly. I contact their support and then I get a fast service with executions that carried out as soon as possible. I am glad I choose this broker.

ActivTrades is a liar, so don’t join trading with this broker. Trading with ActivTrades for 1 year, I just got loss with this broker. Therefore, I decided to leave this broker 3 months ago, because I think it’s enough for me after having worst trades at here. I traded in forex 5 years, so I have experienced with many brokers. Hence, I know how to manage risk in trading, but I can’t accept all my losses at this broker. At the beginning, I put 500$ to trade, and I got loss. However, I continued depositing more money, unfortunately I still got losses. During that period, I lost lots of money with over 1000$, and I think this broker robbed of my money. Thus, I always got some issues from them such as: frozen platform, unstable connection, high spread, etc that makes me always get loss. I was upset with this broker, so I quit trading with ActivTrades by closing my account. In fact, this broker doesn’t let me do this, they ask me continue trading or leave the rest of amount in my account. Finally, I loss the rest of money in my account with this broker, and I left them. Generally, be aware this broker - ActivTrades because they just take your money to their pocket. ActivTrades is really a thief!!!

trading with activtrades is not easy like other broker that I’ve use. Their platform is worst in term of execution and also not stable make the platform crash after 2 hours use in trading. When it comes with market that volatile their platform will easily freeze and make you loss in your position if you want to close the profit position. I’m only make one time deposit because I want to try their system first and my initial deposit almost margin because of this problem and their support don’t even want to help you at all.
