Accounts

There are several different trading account types at Wise Trader. The differences are not determined by selection of tradable assets, or platform type. A bronze account can be opened with only €250. Traders must deposit at least €2,500 to open a Silver account; while a deposit of €10,000 will get you a Gold account. Both accounts offer similar execution, trading signals and a very limited amount of one-on-one coaching. The Platinum account requires a minimum deposit of €25,000 offers portfolio structuring with account manager support. Above that, there is the Diamond account which requires a minimum deposit of €50,000. Finally, the Rhodium account requires a minimum deposit of €100,000 and offers a pre-paid card and annual on-site seminars.

Features

The most notable features of Wise Trader are the wide range of asset types available for trading and the emphasis on education available through their website and account services.

Clients of Wise Trader may trade a wide range of CFD instruments including Forex, commodities, major stock market indices, individual stocks, and cryptocurrencies. The specifics of what is on offer are 45 Forex currency pairs and crosses, the 6 major cryptocurrencies, 5 equity indices from the U.S.A., E.U., and the U.K., the commodities gold, silver, oil, coffee, and natural gas, and 94 individual stocks (mostly from the U.S. market).

Their demo account platform shows that during liquid markets, the benchmark EUR/USD currency pair incurs a spread of approximately 3 pips. That is a relatively high spread, by current industry standards. One thing that is immediately striking about Wise Trader’s website and promotional material is how little they advertise their offering on typical parameters such as spreads, liquidity, execution, etc. This may be an exhibit of confidence. They do emphasize the safety of client assets and their regulation by CySec, the Cypriot financial regulator. Beyond that, their major focus is on their user-friendly layout and emphasis on an education offering which, at least in theory, helps to build a client base of profitable traders. Wise Trader pride themselves on keeping things simple, so you won’t find many of the bells and whistles that are often touted within the industry. 

Platforms

Wise Trader offers no choice of trading platforms: the only available platform option is a proprietary web-based platform, which is relatively intuitive and easy to use, but not in our opinion as easy as a more common platform option such as MetaTrader4. The brokerage expects to add access to the MT4 platform in the coming months.  A Wise Trader mobile app is also available.They do not allow scalping, but they do allow hedging.

Assets

Traders should be aware that when trading with Wise Trader, different maximum leverage limits are applied to different assets. The highest leverage which can be taken is 400 to 1, and the limits are generally high and permissive, so traders looking for leverage won’t have a problem here.

Bonuses/Promotions

Wise Trader currently offer no bonuses or promotions, as they are regulated in Cyprus by CySec who have not allowed any new bonuses or promotions for some time. As Wise Trader was only founded in 2017 after this regulation came into effect, they have never been able to offer bonuses or promotions.

Education

Wise Trader pride themselves upon the strength of their educational offering, operating a full trading academy. The academy consists of “a rich cache of videos, charts, courses, e-books and trading tools all aimed at showing traders how to identify and monetize market opportunities.” The academy includes a series of eBooks covering a wide range of topics that are useful for aspiring traders to learn about, as well as live webinars on topics pertinent to the market at the time. A pivot point calculator and market news roundup complete the education section.

Deposits/Withdrawals

Deposits can be made using major credit and debit cards and digital wallets such as Neteller and Skrill. Bank wire transfers are also accepted.

Withdrawals are made using the same method as deposit was made. 

Customer Support

Traders can contact a Wise Trader representative via telephone or email during Cyprus, 24/6.  An online form is also available for submission of queries.

Conclusion

Wise Trader has a well-rounded offering for traders looking to trade using CFD instruments over a wide range of assets, particularly Forex currency pairs and global equity indices, but notably also a selection of individual major stocks and commodities. Fans of no-nonsense trading looking for a confident and no-frills broker may find their offer especially interesting, and possibly attractive enough to open an account.
