TradeView

Tradeview Forex is an online Forex/CFD brokerage, launched in 2004. That makes the operation 16 this year. This sort of longevity is impressive in and of itself in this industry. What is more impressive about the broker is the fact that its users still have an overwhelmingly positive opinion about its services to this day.

Maintaining a good reputation for 16 years in this industry is no small feat. Review sites have made it clear though: TradeView Forex has succeeded in this regard.

What do people like about the broker and what do they dislike?

At one of the reputable review sites, the operator enjoys a rating of 4.5 stars out of 5. 61% of those who left feedback have found its services “Excellent”. A further 25% have rated it “Great”.

At another, it has earned 4 stars and a bit out of 5.

What people appreciate most about the broker is:

  • Its user-friendliness.
  • The TradeView Forex support.
  • Narrow spreads.
  • There is no Stop-loss hunting.

 What traders do not appreciate is: 

  • Slow support. Some have alleged that the operation may be a “one person” setup due to a “lack” of support.
  • Withdrawal procedures are lengthy and slow.
  • Wide spreads.
  • Poor back office experience.

We have gleaned all this from the feedback dropped by TradeView Forex users at various sites. Again, messages of support and appreciation are much more numerous than complaints.

The company behind TradeView Forex is TradeView LTD. It is certainly not a one-man company as some complainers have alleged. Registered in the Cayman Islands, the company operates under the rules and regulations of the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (CIMA).

The exact address of the brokerage is Grand Cayman, KY1-1002; 103 South Church Street. Harbour Place, 4th floor, Cayman Islands.

TradeView LTD is the possessor of CIMA license #585163. What exactly does CIMA-licensing mean in terms of global coverage/service availability? What we know for certain is that TradeView Forex does not accept traders from the US.

According to the website of the broker, the Cayman Islands are ranked 5th by the FATF (Financial Action Task Force), in terms of compliance.

The jurisdiction acts as the fifth-largest banking center in the world.

Some important numbers that describe the activity of the broker are:

  • More than 1,500 Introducing Brokers (affiliates) all over the world.
  • 4 trading platforms: MT4, MT5, CTrader and Currenex.
  • More than 20,000 real-money trading accounts.
  • More than 100 White Label partners.

In addition to the superb charting, technical indicators and drawing tools, this version of MT4 also offers several interesting features. One such feature is the TradeView Copier. The Tradeview Drawdown Controller and the Multi-Account Manager are also parts of the package. The platform supports Expert Advisors as well as the My FXBook Autotrader.

- MT5 comes with its fair share of interesting features. The MetaTrader market lets users buy custom technical indicators and expert advisors. Renting is an option as well. Copy-trading and Forex trading signals are available through MT5 too. The Strategy Tester serves as a sandbox for various trading robots and optimization modes.

As far as cryptocurrencies go, the broker supports five crypto/fiat pairs. Of these, the BTC/USD pair is the most prominent. Besides the BTC/USD pair, users can also trade BTC/JPY, ETH/USD, LTC/USD, and XRP/USD.

The broker covers six indices. These indices offer exposure to some peculiar corners of the global economy. The GDAXI, NDX, and the AUS200 are some of the supported indices.

The commodities section offers a standard selection of tradable assets. By standard, we mean Gold, Oil, Silver, Natural Gas. There is a Gold/EUR pair featured as well.

TradeView Forex boasts some of the best trading conditions in the industry. Its pure ECN offer provides superb pricing and low commissions.

If you trade through the Innovative Liquidity Connector, your spreads will start from 0 pips. On the other hand, you will pay a commission of $2.50 per lot per side.

On an X Leverage Account, there is no commission. Such accounts do feature a spread, however.

On the BTC/USD pair, the spread is 0.61 pips. This is by-and-large the range for the other crypto/USD pairs as well.

On some indices, the spread is as high as 4 pips. On commodities, it varies widely, depending on the nature of the commodity.
