BTrader Forex Broker Review

BTrader Forex Broker Review



logo_180x180_blue

BTrader is one of the leading Forex brokers on the market. They clearly invest time and money on your first impression when accessing their website. It is clean, fast, straight forward, visually appealing, and simple to use. It is available in 5 languages and they add more often, so people from around the world can benefit from its ease of use. I was so impressed with the site that I was convinced I would be disappointed when reviewing their service. However, that was not the case. They offer all the basic and common services offered by many other Forex brokers, but BTrader definitely includes services that separates them from the pack in a major way, but we will talk more about that later.

When it comes to depositing money, there is no reason Forex brokers should not make this process easy for the trader, unless of course they do not want your money. Well, BTrader enables you to deposit money in every possible way, including some options most people have never even heard of. The options available to you are bank wire, credit card, direct ebanking, money bookers, and much more.

While most brokers make the deposit process relatively easy seeing as they want your money, it is not a rare occurrence for brokers to make the withdrawal process a painful one. With BTrader, you send one fax and you have your money after 3-4 business days, it is as simple as that.

While most brokers offer a downloadable trading platform, and some offer a Web-based interface, BTrader offers both in the form of the famous Meta Trader 4 platform with access to advanced charts and technical indicators. In addition, they offer their own creation, a platform called WebFX. The fact that BTrader created their own web-based platform is an indication that they really do strive to be a top Forex broker, and not just another one to add to the long list.

BTrader supports Forex trading of over 50 different pairs, with the typical spread of the majors being 3 pips. Their spreads are also fixed and not dependent on anything. As I mentioned earlier, they do not disappoint when it comes to the market standards, and they offer a free $15,000 demo account, as well as low deposit ration of $25 for WebFX and $100 for MetaTrader 4. Another aspect in which BTrader stands out is their leverage. It is not the highest you have ever encountered, but 200:1 is definitely below the average confirming that BTrader is truly interested in customers not losing their entire investment in 30 seconds.

At this point of the review, I figured there has to be a catch. They must charge high commission or some sort of hidden fees. So when it became apparent that BTrader charges no commission or fees of any kind, not on deposit, not on withdrawal, and not during trading, I kept looking for that catch.

BTrader offers 24/6 support via phone, email, or live chat, and they proved to be highly responsive, patient, and helpful. Contrary to many other brokers, BTrader does not focus solely on getting your money, they spend a lot of resources on educating traders as well. They offer an entire platform of educational courses, as well as live training. In addition, BTrader offers daily market analysis, an economic calendar, and what they refer to as a Live Dealing Room. This is for all intents and purposes a forum-like experience in which you can ask questions and offer solutions, while communicating with other Forex experts and traders.

All in all, BTrader seems like a very impressive broker, the only thing that might turn off a trader is their lack of FSA regulation, but from what I was told by their support, they are currently in the last stages of the process. One other negative aspect I encountered was some small glitches in their site which does not seem to be compatible with all browsers.

BTrader declares that they offer their customers the best service, and based on my thorough review of BTrader, that is an accurate description of their service as a whole.
