Vestle is the new trading name of iCFD Ltd, an online Forex and CFD market-making brokerage launched in 2011, formerly known as iForex. They are headquartered in Cyprus and regulated by the Cypriot regulator CySEC. They offer traders the opportunity to trade an unusually wide range of instruments wrapped as CFDs (Contracts for Difference), even including a selection of ETFs (exchange-traded funds). Access to such a wide-ranging investment universe is unusual in the retail online brokerage industry. In addition to ETFs, Vestle offer trading in commodities, indices, individual stocks, cryptocurrency, and Forex currency pairs across both major and minor financial markets. A total of over 600 instruments can be traded with Vestle.
Vestle currently offers only a Standard Account and a demo account through which traders can test the brokerage’s service.
Vestle’s Standard Account offers a typical spread on the benchmark EUR/USD currency spread of about 2 pips, which is a little on the high side for anyone depositing a four-figure sum or greater. No commissions are charged in addition to the spread, which floats, so what you see is what you get - even overnight. All account holders, without exception, are entitled to one-on-one basic training with a trading coach, which is a pretty nice offer – most brokerage typically restrict this to the “high rollers” only. Even better than that is the guaranteed, legally binding negative balance protection, which ensures that clients cannot under any circumstances be liable for an amount greater than they deposit with Vestle.
A maximum leverage of 30 to 1 is available in Forex trading, in line with new European Union-wide regulations. Lower maximums apply to most of the non-Forex instruments which are offered. All accounts offer a minimum trade size of 1 micro-lot (0.01 full lots).
A demo account is available, as is typical with nearly all spot Forex and CFD brokers.
An extremely wide range of CFDs of over 80 Forex currency pairs, 18 commodities (including softs), 28 global stock market indices, over 350 major individual stocks and shares, 48 ETFs, and more than 10 cryptocurrency pairs.
Scalping is not allowed, and automated trading is not possible.
Vestle’s most notable feature is its exceptionally wide-ranging offering, centered upon a huge amount of individual stocks and shares CFDs. This could make it a suitable vehicle for traders who want to have at least partial exposure to investment-style, widely diversified trading, although of course as is typical, there is usually an overnight financing fee to pay for holding a position past the rollover time at the end of the global trading day.
Vestle’s platform offering is unusual. Firstly, they do not offer either of the widely-used MetaTrader platforms (MetaTrader 4 or MetaTrader 5). Instead, they have their own self-designed, customized trading platform, the web-based FX Net, as well as a mobile platform through the Vestle application.
Vestle will be offering a wide variety of educational tools such as Vestle offers video tutorials, PDF guides, and articles to help traders improve their trading.
and more. However, at the time of writing, the brokerage’s rebranding is underway, and this section has yet to be added to their website, so we are unable to review it. We except it will be very similar to iForex’s Education section, which is very extensive, of quite good quality, and covers a wider range than most online trading academies.
Bonuses and Promotions
Several bonuses and promotions have been prohibited under Cypriot and European Union regulations, and as this is the area which regulates Vestle, no bonuses or promotions can be offered.
Depositing funds into a Vestle account is an easy and secure process. Funding can be done using a few different methods, including credit cards, Neteller, Moneybooker, and wire transfers. Withdrawals are generally made through the same channel that deposits have been made through.
Customer support is based in Cyprus, but there are dedicated telephone lines for each of 8 countries, offering business hours support in a range of native languages.
Vestle has a well-rounded and professional offering for traders looking to trade a wide range of assets in the form of CFDs, particularly individual shares and ETFs where it stands out from the crows. Traders looking for access to a wide range of markets through a market-making broker who are not particular about the trading platform used will find their offer especially interesting, and quite possibly attractive enough to open an account.
*CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. 86.9% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs with this provider. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.Back to Top
