AppTrader Overview

AppTrader (AT) is a respected online CFD brokerage that provides a good range of forex, cryptos, stocks, commodities and indices. The basic trading account comes with a good package of benefits and trading resources and the account managers are always available with advice and assistance. One of the things we really like about AppTrader is their attitude to trader education. The education center includes a range of 12 trading eBooks. AT seems to have a strong concept of providing a service to traders. This attitude is reflected in their range of 6 trader signals – one for each asset type – and useful tools for fundamental and technical analysis. Overall, AppTrader delivers a positive trading experience with good customer service and impressive technology.

Trading Platforms

AppTrader’s mobile and desktop platforms are simple enough for new users to quickly master, but have enough advanced features to satisfy professional investors. There is a whole suite of well-designed tools, including live feeds, one-click order execution, live charts and signals.

Markets, Assets and Products

AppTrader provides competitive fixed spreads on a wide range of assets from all the major classes. Traders have real time access to hundreds of top forex and cryptocurrency pairs, as well as stocks, indices and commodities.

Trader Education

AppTrader is a brokerage that genuinely cares about giving traders a financial education, and keeping them updated about new assets and market developments. There is a range of 12 professional eBooks, introductional courses, advanced courses, as well as signals, video tutorials and a range of other educational resources. It’s also worth contacting your account manager for free webinars and extra training.

Customer Service and Support

AppTrader provides the usual 24/6 live support and customer service is available in 9 different languages. We found the support staff to be helpful and efficient and with a good basic knowledge of the platforms and account management systems. AppTrader is generally well designed and efficient, so we wouldn’t expect the average trader to have much contact with customer service. Your account manager can easily take care of most issues.

Advanced Features

We can strongly recommend AppTrader’s special signals for each major asset class (cryptos, forex, stocks, indices, and commodities). These can be really useful for new traders, as well as experienced traders who don’t have time to check the performance of hundreds of volatile assets. Another good feature is the Meta Trader tutorial – a tool that a lot of brokerages miss out on.

At a Glance

PLUS:

AppTrader is an online CFD brokerage that looks after its clients. It invests in education and provides some solid trading technology and good features on its platforms. The brokerage also has a global reach; it’s available in nine languages and draws on assets from every major market. The education center is excellent and customer service is slightly above average.

MINUS

AppTrader doesn’t offer as wide a range of account types and choice of benefits as we would have liked. That said, if you build a good relationship with your account manager, there is a lot of potential for upgrades.
