We have tested the MetaTrader 4 platform on demo and we can state that our experience with this platform is mostly positive. We did not experienced any issues during the testing. The spread on the platform is approximately as declared but it was just a demo.
If you are considering to open a business account at this company, then besides completing of standard question form about your personal details you will also have to fill in a lengthy form about your experience in trading.
Then, the first deposit, which is charged and lasts for up to 5 days and requires bank account verification, will come in hand. Next option is the deposit by credit or debit card. Thus the list of deposit and withdrawal options ends, which is indeed insufficient for such a large company.
At the same time, there are opinions on the internet that withdrawals take too long. We do not have similar experience, withdrawals came to us in a few days.
Education and seminars
ETX offers a variety of educational options. One of them are webinars from which begginers and also experienced traders can choose and they are completely free to join for ETX clients. Topics vary but they are primarily focused on basic topics like technical analysis, fundamental analysis and moneymanagement.
Further we cannot forget daily business news, actualities and other interesting informations which are open for the trader.
Support and client service
One of the declared featues on the company website is high quality client service. It is true that you can always ask ETX technical support for help and the technical support is in Czech language thanks to branch office in Prague 4.
From that reason is pity that for example the withdrawals from business accounts do not work as they surely could. Nowadays, when it takes only a few minutes for some regulated brokers, it is a pity that it can take up to 5 days for ETX.
ETX Capital has more than 50 years traditions and that already says something about this company. It offers really inexhaustible quantity of trading instruments and with that it is possible to satisfy even the most demanding customers. It has very good background, deposits at leading national banks, favourite platform MetaTrader 4 etc.
All in all, only the positives.
Between the negatives belongs for example slow deposits inputs and withdrawals or unavailability of any form of social trading.
