I started trading with ActivTrades a few weeks ago. I am having both good and bad days. Perhaps, most of it is because of my lack of experience but I think the broker also factors in. Their platform often lags and the execution of orders gets delayed most of the time. As a result, I can't make the trade that I want.

This broker seem obscure and strange the first time I trade with them. I was so scared when I can not control the market analysis then I would be difficult to implement trade. I do not recommend this broker because of their poor systems which offered to their clients. Their server had many re-quotes during the trading time and placing order. Thus my trades were delayed in traffic time. They put 20 second delay on every order. I couldn't even make a order or close because the price will be different.

Their MT4 platform doesn't work as fast as it was with demo account. I don't have problems but it takes some time to get used to that. My first deposit was $700. I was very happy because I get a profit. But when he asked for withdraw, they wouldn't grant it without a clear explanation.

I have been trading with ActivTrades demo account for approximately 3 months. They advertise the spreads on a demo account 1 pips which are same as for a live account . After which I made my first deposit and I could see that the spreads for major currency were really about 6 pips. I send an email to customer support and they told me that they claim a commission of 3.0 pips for each trade. That’s why there is a difference between my demo and my live account. Don't waste your money with them. The broker is joke.

I've got frustrated with their systems. My problem with them is they seem to have some fake ticks plugin on all of their instruments. They gives many false spikes. Sometimes they stop their server from few min. Even the market is not volatility. They have irrelevant analysies, it is too difficult to join them. I don´t recommend this broker.

I am impressed that ActivTrades is regulated by various jurisdictions as it is an implication that this broker is could be trusted. However, not all of their platforms are working excellently. Their MT4 platform is great but their MT5 and the other versions runs poorly. They always lag and some of my orders are not executed correctly. I have been complaining to the technical support already but they still haven't fixed it. I give credit, though, to the representatives for their long patience.

Active Trades has the worst funding system in the world. Bestially I user their Neteller system for depositing and withdrawal fund. For last 2 months, I did get my money in proper time. When I put small withdrawal (below $100) request they send it jut in 4 days. But when I put large amount like $700 they took too much time. I got my last $700 after 20 days later. I transaction transparency is the most important then making huge profit. I am thinking to change this broker.

I traded mainly on technical analysis whereby I tried to understand and learn chart variations and other representations models. I think it seemed safer compare to fundamental analysis. I used Activ Trade for 1 year and experienced loss about $250. I noticed that, trading platform always freeze especially during news. Spread also increase and high, besides order execution were not sent as I wish. I don’t think will continue with this broker and now still looking for other broker.

I surely wouldn't be convinced to deposit anymore in ActivTrades because of their weak trading system and bad platform. I opened an account with them in the past month because a friend of mine recommended it to me when he showed me proof of his profits that he got around 30% every trading. Honestly, my first trdaing experience is pretty good, I've earned $50 of deposit $100. But after I made my second deposit, their spreads getting so ridiculous that it is impossible to profitably trade, its floating unitl 2,5 pips. And when I complained to them about it, they only told me that there's nothing they could do about it. So I decided to stop deposit and trading here, and said to my friend that he choose wrong broker. I would not recommend ActivTrades.

ActivTrades is a not good broker when it comes to execution, spreads and slippage. Huge slippage on volatile markets, during the last US unemployment rate change news announcement I got filled 24 pips outside of the spread 3 times in a row on EUR/USd pair. Another disaster things is that rollover cost and commissions too high compared with other brokers. I was being rollover charged on a long $35 GPB/USD position and short 54 EUR/NZD position. I will not deposit single penny with them anymore.
