ITRADER.COM is regulated by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) under license number 198/13 and is a sponsor of Manchester City F.C.
ITRADER.COM offers a range of three account types: Silver, Gold and Platinum. Higher minimum deposits are required for the Gold and then the Platinum accounts, but lower spreads are charged against trades.
The company offers spreads which are quite reasonable for its market and a very high maximum leverage of 500:1– all for a minimum deposit of just $250 (which can easily be deposited via credit card or wire transfer). The minimum deposit ensures a qualification for a Silver account, whereas greater amounts must be deposited to qualify for a Gold or Platinum account.
Traders can set up an account within minutes once all of the necessary compliance documents are uploaded.
ITRADER.COM allows trading in a very wide range of assets including individual stocks, commodities including gold and oil, forex, and equity indices. Many of the instruments are offered for trading as CFDs.
Contracts for Differences (CFD) give traders all the benefits of owning a particular stock, index, or commodity position – without having to physically own the underlying instrument itself, enabling clients to trade the change in price of multiple commodity and equity markets, with leverage and immediate execution. A customer enters into a contract for a CFD at the quoted price and the difference between that price and the price when the position is closed is settled in cash – hence the name “Contract for Difference” or CFD.
ITRADER.COM provides commission-free trading, with absolutely zero fees – and also has pretty competitive spreads, which go as low as 0.7 pips on the benchmark EUR/USD currency pair for Platinum account holders. To give you an idea of the differences between the different account types, the lowest spread in the EUR/USD currency pair that a Silver account holder would expect to see is 2.2 pips.
Leverage of up to 500:1 is available for Forex, 125:1 for commodities and indices, and 50:1 for individual stocks – meaning that an account funded with $5,000 could open a $250,000 position in an individual share.
A demo account is available for new traders or any other traders who wish to practice new trading strategies before moving on to a real account. This “paper trading” can be useful as a test run before making any financial commitment.
The major trading platforms offered are Metatrader 4 and Webtrader, the latter of which is most noted for its features of “trading cubes” which can speed up trade execution, and a “visual trends” charting tool which allows the major market trends to be assimilated at a glance.
Something that stands out from ITRADER.COM’s offering is the wide range of 31 European equities available for trading, as well as 50 North American stocks. There is also a particularly wide range of commodities offered, including softs such as corn, cocoa and orange juice.
ITRADER.COM seems to be a gimmick-free broker, offering the concrete and useful features that one would expect from a competent broker: popular trading platforms, mobile phone compatibility, a wide range of assets, and a fully-stocked education and news service free to clients.

The MetaTrader 4 trading platform is another available platform at ITRADER.COM. This out-of-the-box trading software is a standard offering, and certainly plays second fiddle to the ITRADER.COM WebTrader.
Nevertheless, the MT4 platform is respected worldwide because it offers a host of powerful trading tools and features. Including multiple methods of opening and closing positions, including directly from charts and quotes windows and immediate order execution capabilities.
