8 Benefits of Trading with Valutrades



When you’re on the hunt for an online forex brokerage, you’ve got options. Online forex trading has seen a number of platforms rise to prominence by providing state-of-the-art capabilities that meet the needs of both new and experienced forex traders. Meanwhile, the market for electronic communication network (ECN) brokers continues to see new platforms attempt to break in among forex traders.

If you’re unfamiliar with how these platforms and services differ from one another, it might be tempting to assume they’re all, more or less, the same. But the differences between one trading platform and the next can be significant—and it’s not just about the user experience. If you don’t analyze these platforms thoroughly, you could end up choosing a forex trading service that exposes you to risk and losses you wouldn’t suffer on a different platform.

With Valutrades, forex traders receive a number of crucial benefits that limit their risk and improve their ability to research and execute a profitable trading strategy. Here are eight specific benefits of making our platform your home for forex trading.

Negative Balance Protection

With some ECN brokers, contract-for-difference (CFD) trading can be a highly risky strategy: Although this type of trade can help you generate enormous profits off modest investments, it can also plunge your account deep into debt, creating a situation in which you own a negative balance because your losses exceed your total account balance.

Fortunately for forex traders, Valutrades offers negative balance protection. This means that losses from CFD trading can’t create a negative balance in your account, greatly limiting your risk from this type of trade. Traders are better protected against the volatility of the forex market, and they’re able to execute trades with greater peace of mind. And it also demonstrates that your brokerage isn’t looking to profit off your debt—instead, Valutrades wants to serve as a platform on which you can build sustained success.

ECN Trading

ECN trading is a cutting-edge solution that links smaller market participants with large volumes of liquidity, resulting in faster trade execution and more efficient after-hours trading—a critical service to forex traders working with currencies around the globe. In addition, ECN trading typically offers low spreads and inexpensive, fixed-rate commissions for trading across a number of major currencies. 

ECN trading on Valutrades also allows scalping and news trading without any limits on the number of open orders, or the order distance from market price. 

Free MT4 Indicators

With Valutrades, you gain access to a massive library of free MetaTrader 4 indicators that you can use to evaluate forex pairs and trading opportunities. These tools can play a significant role in your trade evaluation strategy, helping you quickly and accurately identify profitable positions. Traders can use indicators to assess currency prices and trends across a number of different data points, and according to a wide range of proven strategies and criteria, to maximize their earnings from forex trading. 

With Valutrades, you receive these indicators for free, rather than being forced to acquire them on your own.

Virtual Private Server

A slow or inconsistent internet connection can be costly and frustrating when you’re trying to execute trades quickly and at a specific price point. A virtual private server (VPS) offers access to low-latency trading, limiting your exposure to downtime and lags that can compromise your execution of trades. You can choose your VPS based on the providers offered through our platform. 

Any trader can benefit from access to a VPS, but this service is crucial for scalpers, day traders, and any other trader who’s attempting to execute urgent and time-sensitive trades.

Higher Leverage for Professional Traders

If you qualify for a professional trader on Valutrades UK, you can gain access to leverage that far exceeds the value of your account. Also Valutrades Seychelles accounts, for example, offers 500-to-1 leverage for account holders. The ability to access this leverage gives you more profit potential through your trading, allowing you to capitalize on your strong financial portfolio with every trade you make.

Extensive Library of Trading Resources

In addition to the free MT4 indicators available to our traders, Valutrades clients can access a wide range of resources to build up their trading acumen and research strategies and trading opportunities. These resources include e-books, webinars, informative videos, and blog articles covering a wide range of forex topics.

Fund Security

Forex traders want assurance that their online brokers can keep their investment funds secure at all times. Valutrades offers industry-leading security by storing these funds in secure segregated accounts separate from Valutrades’ own cash reserves at Tier 1 banks including Barclays, Lloyds and Natwest. We follow all applicable regulations to ensure fund security for all of our clients. Including offering clients of the UK access to the FSCS compensation scheme.

First-Class Customer Service

When you need assistance, Valutrades representatives are available to help. We offer multilingual support through phone calls, online chat, and email to respond to any problems or inquiries you may have. Our platform also hosts businesses across six continents and more than 70 countries. This globe-spanning presence is why we’ve built a reputation as #YourGlobalFXBroker.
