Trading with ActivTrades has become more profitable compared to my previous broker. I invested $1200 with them and using my customize EA with their MT4 platform for four months, and I doubled my profit during these period. I like their low spread on major pair, sometimes it is less than 1 pip. Execution is very quick and requotes is very rarer . A little spike may happen on high volatile market but not more than 15 pips. Everything works well and I am capable to withdraw my money within same day. Anyways I recommend ActivTrades broker.

ActivTrades have successfully cheated me. I started to trade with them six months ago. Everything was going well, and I made a profit. Once I want to withdraw it, I couldn't withdraw all of the profit I got from the trading results for six months. And I had an interesting experience with their customer support. Their was very unfriendly, disappointing, and made me angry. I called them for an explanation, and they told me that my request is in queue for processing. I waited for a week before, I saw that the amount I asked for withdrawal was already deducted from my trading account. Because of that, I thought that it will be transferred in a couple of days. However, a month has already passed, and I still haven't received anything. I already asked for an update, but they don't respond. I had to remind them every time and still not resolved.

I am having difficulty in withdrawing my money from ActivTrades. I wanted to withdraw my profit which is only amounting to $50 dollars but the company is not processing it. I already submitted all the documents they need yet there is still not progress in the request. The financial department is not even giving me any update at all.

I have 2 cases with Activtrades that they stole my money. First case, they cancel my profit more than $13,000. They delete all my trading history. Second case, last Friday, they did not allow me to deposit because it was different name. Therefore, I contact their support and they completely cancelled my trades of the day removing any evidence from my MT4 platform and in doing so removed all profits. These profits were genuine and there is plenty of proof that the prices were valid. Activtrades is the only broker that reversed the profits following this announcement. I would caution against trading with ActivTrades until this issue is resolved.in addition, they let me deposit using 3rd party in the beginning, and let my withdrawl several times. However, when I urgently need to deposit to top up margin, they hold my deposit with 3rd party reason. They enjoyed my loss. Please, avoid this broker if you value your money!!

I feel disappointed in this broker due to changes in their trading systems sudden and adverse the trader. Last week my transaction was rejected many times and get a notification to close my account positions. Though initially I was very pleased with the quality of these brokers, They have tight spreads, and leverages between 1: 1 and 1: 400 although Minimum account size burdensome ie $ 100, but now they look more unprofessional because there is no clarity on the problems I had.

I am a customer for three years. Since the beginning of 2011 it became a scam, and I’m disappointed from ActiveTrades. Between shortest times they forced me to close my positions with big loss. They announced me the change of leverage from 400:1 to 25:1 was only within two weeks. This is not the way like the broker treat good customers. Be clever and avoid this broker. In addition, requote takes 5 to 10 seconds to open/close an order. I will close my account after several discussed with the support and find another broker.

You can maximize your profit potential by taking advantage of scalping with their low spreads !!! Scalping is allowed - Webinars. They focus only on the basic themes. It’s better to make also some webinars for the experienced traders. - Support guys reply on time. - Stop levels are from 0.5 spreads - No problem with the withdrawals!!

Activtrades is a nice broker. They have tight spreads, and leverages between 1:1 and 1:400. Margins are dependent on your leverage and in general help to reduce your initial outlay. I always have control over my exposure. Lot sizes are either 10,000 units or 100 units depending on the currency pair. Rollover charges are applicable for held overnight positions.

Trading platform is very slow and unstable, the execution very very slow and it is very difficult to trades with this broker. You'll be disappointed when you want to place an order with good price. Intentionally delaying your orders to execute.

I am not satisfied . Their services very bad. Take very long time to reply an email. Withdrawal also take few weeks. Live chat also so bad. Always no respond. If your scalping, then this broker is not good for you.
