Review

12 Trader, founded in 2013, is a Forex and CFD broker headquartered in London, UK, but regulated in Vanuatu. They are currently applying for regulation in Cyprus under CySec.

Accounts

There are three different account types to choose from at 12 Trader. The Micro account can be opened with a deposit of as little as $50, but deposits must be made in U.S> Dollars. This account offers only the Sirix Web Trader Platform, while the other account types may be used with 12 Trader’s mobile trading platform on smartphones. The Micro account offers maximum leverage of 200:1, while the other account types offer considerably higher leverage capped at 400:1. The Silver account requires a minimum deposit of $10,000 or its Euro equivalent, while the Gold account requires a minimum deposit of $25,000 or its Euro equivalent.

The fee model of 12 Trader is spreads only, there no commissions.

A demo account is available, as is typical with nearly all spot Forex brokers.

Islamic accounts and managed account are also offered.

A wide range of Forex currency pairs, commodities, and CFDs may be traded with 12 Trader.

 

Features

Trading can be done 24/5 on the Web or via mobile devices using the 12 Trader app if you open a Silver or Gold account.

The trader platform offered is the Sirix Web Trader, a well-known platform used widely, by many brokers. It includes a social trading element.

Education

12 Trader’s educational offering consists of some basic, static textual information available on the site, which explains the rudiments of the Forex market. The 12 Trader website claims that a range of educational Forex courses are offered to traders, but the courses do not seem to be available within the website. The directory also offers a pips calculator and Forex glossary, but at the time of writing they were not operational.

 

Bonuses and Promotions

At the time of writing, no bonuses and promotions are offered, but 12 Trader claims that account holders are offered free signals, access to an educations center which includes video tutorials suitable for both beginners and professionals, and other trading tools and resources including an e-book, daily and weekly market analysis, and an economic calendar. However, none of these features are plainly visible on their website, which is concerning.

 

Deposits/Withdrawals

Depositing funds into a 12 Trader account is an easy and secure process. Funding can be done using a range of credit and debit cards, as well as Skrill. Withdrawals can be made through exactly the same methods.

Deposits and withdrawals are both subject to a maximum of $10,000 per day. Withdrawals must be made in minimum amounts of $500.

There is no limit on the amount of deposit sent as a wire transfer and $10,000 is required for Western Union.

Deposits and withdrawals to Micro accounts must be made in U.S. Dollar, while for Silver and Gold accounts they can also be made in Euros.

 

Customer Support

Customer support is based in London, United Kingdom, and is available in both the English and Arabic languages. Traders can contact a 12 Trader representative by telephone during business hours and can use email anytime of the day. Chat is also available as a communication channel, as is email.

 

Conclusion

12 Trader seems to have a fairly well-rounded offering for traders looking to trade CFDs as well as Forex currency pairs. However, their seeming lack of real website content coupled with their lack of regulation anywhere outside Vanuatu are two factors that deserve thoughtful consideration from anyone considering opening a real money account with them.
