TradeView is an offshore-registered and regulated stock, forex and CFD broker-dealer based out of the Cayman Islands and regulated by the Cayman Island Monetary Authority (CIMA). With its offshore status, the broker offers high leverage, a simple and convenient registration process, and accepts clients from most countries in the world with the exception of the United States.
TradeView offers an unusually large selection of trading instruments, ranging from popular cryptocurrencies to major stock indices, and a number of CFDs based on individual stocks, exchange traded funds (ETFs), options, and futures. In addition, commodities, precious metals, and a large number of currency pairs are also available for trading.
The large number of available trading instruments makes TradeView stand out as a good choice for traders who need access to a variety of markets.
TradeView has arranged their services into two different parts known as TradeView Forex and TradeView Stocks. As the name implies, the forex division of the broker offers trading in foreign currency pairs, as well as CFDs based on cryptocurrencies and commodities. TradeView Stocks, however, is a traditional stockbroker, offering trading in futures, options, ETFs and thousands of stocks from different world markets. All trading instruments are generally offered with dynamic and very competitive spreads.
In terms of trading platforms, TradeView Forex offers its clients the choice of four different platforms:
– MetaTrader 4
– MetaTrader 5
Among these platforms, MetaTrader is probably the best-known for the majority of retail traders. The other two, cTrader and Currenex, are lesser-known, but includes some distinct features worth mentioning.
cTrader is a sophisticated trading platform based on ECN technology, and comes in a web-based and mobile version. The platform also includes functionality for copy-trading, which allows traders to follow trading strategies with a good track record, or to become signal providers themselves. The platform is well-designed with a modern and intuitive user interface. It further supports level 2 pricing with full market depth, and is available in 14 different languages.
Currenex, on its end, is known as a world leader in high-speed, low-latency forex trading, and offers more advanced order management and reporting tools than many other comparable platforms. However, the design of the platform looks somewhat old-fashioned, and perhaps not as modern and user-friendly as the cTrader.
Meanwhile, TradeView Stocks has its own selection of trading platforms for trading in stocks, ETFs, options, and futures:
– Sterling Trader Pro: One of the most-used platforms globally for stock and options trading, available both in downloadable and web-based versions.
– Rhino Trader 4.0: Comes with a convenient and customizable workspace, and is built for fast order execution.
– MetaTrader 5
When it comes to trading accounts, TradeView offers its clients the choice between a practice account for “paper trading,” an individual account for independent traders, a joint account for groups of traders, or a corporate account for companies.
Somewhat special for TradeView is that they also have an offering for so-called “prop traders.” These are experienced traders that trade on the broker’s own account with a profit-sharing agreement with the broker. According to TradeView, profits are disbursed to their prop traders on a monthly basis, and all prop traders are required to run their trading as a formal business, which could also be beneficial for the trader for tax reasons. Experienced traders with a successful track record are encouraged to contact the broker to learn more about the details of this offer.
