Marketing at Capital One Forex is done by offering several partnering solutions such as Money Managers, Introducing Brokers, White Label and Private Distribution Partner (PDP) for those who cannot control who their referred traders are and who want to monetize on their website traffic.
Bonuses seem to be important at Capital One Forex and they are the first things one sees when opening the website.
A 150% trade bonus is given for minimum deposits of $250. This bonus is a tradable bonus, not a credit bonus but balance bonus. It can be used to trade with and support account positions and margin.
A 500% credit bonus will be given for a minimum deposit of $250. This bonus can be used as leverage only and the client can withdraw his deposit and the profits anytime the client wishes.
Another bonus is the $10 instant cash whereby a client can choose a "rebates account" and receive an instant rebate into their trading account. For every lot traded the client will receive $10. The rebate can be withdrawn at any time.
Capital One Forex offers a somewhat limited selection of educational tools. There are textual lessons on a variety of subjects and detailed explanations on the basic concepts and ideas in Forex trading. Fundamental and technical analyses are explained in detail as a lesson but there is no real daily or weekly analysis posted on the site.
A clear spreads table is provided but no economic calendar of updated news reports.
Deposits can be made using a variety of credit and debit cards, wire transfers and a host of online payment plans such as Neteller, Skrill, CashU and others. A maximum of $10,000 is required for each deposit. The minimum deposit varies from $50 to $500 depending on the funding method chosen.
Withdrawals are made using the same methods as the deposits. Maximum withdrawals are usually $10,000.
Both deposits and withdrawals can be done directly from the website.
Traders can reach a customer support representative by telephone at any of the broker’s international offices. Email correspondence is also available. Skype and Chat are offered when the website is opened.
The website can be accessed in over 10 different languages, including Korean and Bengali.
Capital One Forex offers traders an easy trading environment. Unfortunately, there seems to be quite a bit of information missing from the site and this is unsettling. The place of domicile is not posted, and there is nothing on the site to make one feel like any information that is present is updated as there are no news reports, no analysis of any kind and no economic calendar.
