Desktop trading platform

ActivTrades‘s desktop trading platform is provided by MetaTrader. It is highly customizable, has a clear fee report and price alerts, but lacks a two-step login and its design is outdated.

Markets and products

At ActivTrades, you can only trade forex and other CFDs, including crypto. Other popular asset classes such as real stocks, bonds, funds or options are not available.


ActivTrades’s selection of research tools is average, but they are user-friendly. Charting and other technical tools, like APIs, are great. However, there are no trading ideas or fundamental data.
