Summary
Avoid. Now rolled in to Finexo. Forex Web Trader began reading in 2003, and it offers one of the largest selections of currency pairs on the market. But we struggle to find anyone to speak to at this broker. They are incommunicado. The batteries have run out on their walkie talkies. Their phones are on silent mode. (You get the drift).Web Forex Trader also has a MT4 platform and phone trading, giving you a range of platforms to open and close positions.Gearing is up to 200x.
What’s Good Room For Improvement
  • Web Trading Platform (no download)
  • One click trading if you set it
  • Set a profit target when your position hits a fixed price
  • Set a Stop loss to close positions if the market moves against your position
  • Set trailing stops that dynamically move your order in your favour until the market checks back
  • All major Forex currency pairs available- save your favourites in the Price panel- add or remove instruments from the Price panel by clicking the Favorites icon
  • Spreads
    Spreads from 3 pips (for EURUSD, EURCHF, EURGBP, USDJPY). All other pairs offered on competitive trading spreads with no additional charges, ticket fees or commissions.
  • Daily analysis
  • 24-Hour trading and support
  • Trade immediately by credit card, PayPal, Moneybookers, Neteller or WebMoney.
  • Start trading forex with as little as $25 to $50,000 (or €)
  • 200:1 leverage (0.5% margin)
  • Trade with a Euro or US Dollar trading account
  • A reply to an email would be good
  • Charts could be improved
  • You must withdraw using the same payment mechanism as you made the withdrawal
  • As far as we could make out, there was no option of testing the system out with a free “play” account. When you sign up, you need to make an initial deposit to get a username and password
  • There was a choice of 2 platforms, Web Trader2 and WebFX- but the only one that accepted our username & password was the WebFX platform
  • As far as we can make out, you can´t change the gearing on your trades. They offer a gearing of 100 (margin of 1%)
Review
Forex Web Trader has been around a while (since 2003), and while that is no indication of quality, it does gove you some confidence that it is not a fly by night scheme. The platform is pretty good (although the charting could be improved), and you can start trading with as little as $25, making this a good place for beginners. (There´s a practice area as well where you can practise your trades with virtual money). If they’d only answer your emails!We found it a bit confusing that you are given the choice of 2 platforms when you first log in: Webtrader2 (which didn´t accept our password) and their new platform WebFX (which did)ForexWebTrader offers spreads from 3 pips on the major currency pairs, and a range of platforms- the web of course (no download needed), the phone and on your mobile.
