AvaTrade Review & Author's Comment

You would like to trade forex and you like to have the opportunity to hedge your spot trades with put/call options as well. On the top of that, you are planning to invest in stocks like Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, etc. Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin have been getting more and more popular recently and you like to try those too.

You wish to trade all those instruments and you would like to have them all in one broker, right? AvaTrade gives you all of them. AvaTrade is probably one of the best forex brokers all around the world when it comes to the range of instruments offered. In addition, they are regulated by reliable institutions such Central Bank of Ireland and ASiC.

However, following the warning from Canadian regional regulator FCAA against AvaTrade, I had to downgrade the company on reliability department, thus the overall rating.

Wide range of trading instruments including options, bonds, ETFs and cryptocurrencies. Tradig bonuses available. High spreads. Canadian regulator FCAA issued a serious warning against AvaTrade. Thus, reliability is damaged.

I have been in trading business for almost 30 years and the latest 15 years of this period has been devoted to foreign exchange trading. After the boom of forex brokers offering lucrative features like leverage, 24/5 trading hours and wide diversity in pair instruments, I have tried and traded with more than thirty forex brokers in several different countries.
