June 2020:  An AvaTrade employee has told the FPA that "we are one of 3000 companies to use the same IP."  The FPA wonders about the security of sensitive client personal and financial information with so many offices of so many companies sharing the same IP address.
Summer 2018:  The FPA asks ALL AvaTrade reviewers  to please include their account number in their review.

If you submit a review and it is not approved within 5 business days, please CLICK HERE, read the message, and fill out the form if necessary.  EVERY person who submits information from the form will get a reply from the FPA.

September 2013:   AvaTrade has not been able to provide the FPA with information about how the company can tell what is a normal off-market fill vs. what is arbitrage.

Until this issue is resolved, the FPA recommends against using Forex News Gun software or any other news trading software with AvaTrade.com.

Other websites of this company include AvaTrade.co.za, AvaTrade.es.

Hi there, I have been with Ava Trade for nearly a year. They are a very good broker to work with. So far, I have a seamless trading relationship including depositing/withdrawing funds and getting my queries etc. promptly answered and handled. In particular my account manager is one of the best I have worked with, the service is really good . He's very proactive and provides excellent support as I am new and not so familiar with many aspects of forex and indices trading. All the best for this near year, Happy Trading.

I always wanted to trade

Service use: Live

Length of use: 3-6 Months

But frankly speaking, I couldn't dare to do it for a long time, because every time I came across articles in which traders shared their negative experiences.
But then I decided that everything could work out differently, so I registered with this company and started trying to do it calmly, in order not to make any unnecessary mistakes, etc.
There are a lot of training materials - books, articles and lectures, which are distributed by the degree of complexity, etc. In this way, you will always be able to find something useful for you.
And also here is a huge set of crypto currencies, it turned out that it is very interesting and profitable to work with them.

Deserves attention

Service use: Live

Length of use: 6-12 Months

I can say that the advantages are definitely more than disadvantages.
Firstly, a broker has good regulation. One can argue for a long time about whether regulation is important or not (some traders claim that it only worsens trading conditions and still doesn't protect the trader), but I stick to the classic view that a trader needs regulatied broker first of all. AvaTrade has regulation, so if I face any problems, I can contact the regulator for help.
Secondly, AvaTrade has almost no slippages. This depends largely on the broker's and AvaTrade servers processing the information fast enough that there are no slippages.
Thirdly, AvaTrade offers Metatrader 4/5 and does not limit the use of Expert Advisors or automated trading. I use algorithms and this is very important for me.
Finally, there is training. I have 15 years of experience in trading, so I don't need it, but it is still an advantage for beginners. I think many of those who will read my review are new in trading.
The main drawback is a very confusing website, where it is difficult to understand everything at once.

100% satisfied with this brokerage

Service use: Live

Length of use: 3-6 Months

Hey, I'm completely satisfied with this broker and I have every reason to say it. AvaTrade is my second broker. The first one was unregulated and I lost some of my funds there, so I decided that from now on I will only trade with regulated brokers.
I spent about 2 months choosing a broker and checked all A-Z about the broker to know what to expect. Among other brokers, AvaTrade was the only one to which I had no questions, as I was completely satisfied with everything I saw. From the regulations to the trading conditions.
I've been trading with this broker for six months now and I'm still satisfied. Slippages sometimes happen, but it's really rare, so you can consider it irrelevant to pay attention.

Queja Avatrade Solucionada

Service use: Live

Length of use: over 1 Year

Last week I spoke with Avatrade Chile, we reached an agreement to finally put an end to this misunderstanding that plagued us for many years, they will deposit the money on November 2 and they will give me a period of one year to be able to operate the required lot to be able to be withdrawn, including the earnings that come from it, according to the rules of the contest and that seems reasonable to me.

I am satisfied with the response, I close this complaint in good terms, I thank the directors of Avatrade and the Forex Peace Army platform for worrying about watching over this case and having followed up until its entire solution.

La semana pasada converse con Avatrade Chile, llegamos a un acuerdo para acabar por fin con este mal entendido que por muchos años nos aquejaba, me depositaran el dinero el 2 de noviembre y me darán un plazo de un año para poder operar el lotaje requerido para poder ser retirable, incluyendo las ganancias que procedan de ella, según las bases del concurso y que me parece razonable.

Estoy satisfecho con la respuesta, doy por cerrada esta queja en buenos términos, agradezco a los directivos de Avatrade y a la plataforma de Forex Peace Army por preocuparse en velar por este caso y haberle dado seguimiento hasta su entera solución.

Sep 25, 2020 - 1 Star Avatrade never deposited the funds, and blocked all contact numbers, they owed me $ 5000 US dollars for more than 3 years.

Avatrade nunca me deposito los fondos, me bloqueo todos los números de contacto, me deben $5000 dolares americanos desde hace más de 3 años.

hi, I read so many people who have had problems but for what I received I can only express 5 stars as a vote.
it is true that to verify me they took more than 2 weeks but it is also true that my manager has always called me and kept informed of everything following me on everything I have to thank him very much Mr. Andrea Belli of avatrade
in this period that goes from the registration date that is December 2 I also had the opportunity to withdraw thanks to positive transactions and the withdrawal of 1000 € as I had been confirmed in advance arrived in 3 days on my credit card thanks again and congratulations for the speed of services that you offer
if the good morning is seen from the morning I only have to be happy with Avatrade

salve, leggo di tante persone che hanno avuto problemi ma per quello che io ho ricevuto non posso che esprimere 5 stelle come voto.
è vero che per verificarmi ci hanno messo più di 2 settimane ma e anche vero che il mio manager mi ha sempre chiamato e tenuto informato di tutto seguendomi su tutto devo ringraziarlo molto il sig Andrea Belli della avatrade
in questo periodo che va dalla data di registrazione che e il 2 dicembre ho anche avuto il modo di poter prelevare grazie a delle operazioni positive ed il prelievo di 1000€ come mi era stato confermato in anticipo è arrivato in 3 giorni sulla mia carta di credito grazie ancora e complimenti per la rapidita dei servizi che offrite
se il buongiorno si vede dalla mattina io ho solo che essere contento di Avatrade

I recently came across your platform and compared it with 10 major forex platform in North America and was very impressed. Your platform offers trader the best opportunity to make money on Foreign Currencies, Commodities and Stock Indices with the least amount of investment. Your live technical analysis is nearly 99.9% accurate and help beginner traders to make and not lose money. You should advertise some more, no other platform can match the opportunities you give to Traders.

Great Job.......Love your customer service people too
