I’m very pleased using the services of ActivTrades. This broker provides excellent trading conditions along with lots of advantages which I didn’t run up with other brokers. What impressed me most is the wide rage of currency pairs to trade, plus exotic ones, excellent trading platfom, which is available also for mobile devices and fast money withdrawal. Also ActivTrades provides amazing educational opportunies, 24 hour support and personal attitute anytime you need. My requirements for a reliable broker are fulfilled beyond my expectations! Recommend them!
Victoria Jensen Country: Bulgaria Apr 27, 2016
This is definitely the best broker I have ever worked with. They treat me honestly and fairly, provide me with excellent customer service, with numerous instruments I can trade with and with educational videos that expand my knowledge about Forex trading. Their spreads and commissions are some of the lowest on the market. I am very pleased to be their client and I strongly recommend them.

I am very satisfied with the services of ActiveTrades. As you can see, the company has a lot to offer. What I like the most about it is that this broker is reliable, I have never had any issues, and its quick support.

I have been a client of many brokers, but ever since I found ActivTrades I realized what “excellent trading conditions” means. The company provides some of the lowest spreads on the market, the opportunity to choose your own leverage as well as low margin, quick order execution without any requotes, 24-hour customer service that is quick to respond to any calls and treats you politely and respectfully, quick withdrawal times and no commissions, not to mention that when you are withdrawing money through a bank account all bank fees are paid by the broker when you’re within the EU.
ActivTrades is very ethical and honest towards its clients and truly does provide excellent trading conditions, I highly recommend them.

I use this broker for 2 years and I am very happy with them. Excellent trading conditions, instant executions, professional approach with the 24-hours support, fast money withdrawal. I highly recommend them!

Excellent execution. One of the few brokers that I work with that positive slippage actually works. Also have a nice package of trading tools and it's very nice that I can't go into negative balance, meaning that I can always withdraw my profits and guarantee a maximum loss.

In my ten-plus years of a trader, ActivTrades has been so far the best broker I have encounter. The broker is very professional, regulated, and transparent. There is no perfection and there may be some minor tech glitches from time to time, but 99% of the time, the platform and all of their services are up and running. Client funds are secured, withdrawals are easy and fast. Customer service is excellent.

I would recommend you the services provided by ActivTrades.
Beyond several other advantages, I would like to point out the following ones: - 24 hours client service; Good customer support and valuable education (One to one, Seminars, Webinars, Handbooks and Educational Videos) - A very wide range of instruments to negotiate in currency pairs, metals, indices, commodities, shares and financials. - Powerful and globally respected MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader5 trading platforms (also available on the most widely used mobile devices) - Low spreads and low commissions - EXCESS OF FSCS INSURANCE: Client funds individually covered up to £500,000 - DIRECT EXECUTION: Fully automated executions. There is no dealing desk and therefore no human intervention over your trades.

ActivTrades forex broker as a lower barrier to entry by allowing me to open an account with as little as $100 and in terms of available pairs of currencies, it offers 50 pairs of currencies plus exotic pairs to trade.
I already used their Help & Support by email, live chat and remote support with success but they also offer telephone support. They also provide a lot of educational materials like free live webinars with different speakers where I have learn a lot. Oh and all most forgot, no problem withdrawing my money.
Ross Country: Bulgaria Feb 29, 2016
I've been using this broker for quiet a long time now and i can say that their services are one of the best. I've been working with 3 other brokers, but ActivTrades does an outstanding job in providing you with the experience you wanna feel being a trader. Their platform, execution, quotes and spreads are great. I had never had any problems withdrawing money, their customer service is one of the best I've dealt with. Recommend them.
