AvaTrade – Fixed & Floating Spreads

Founded in 2006, AvaTrade (headquartered in Dublin, Ireland) is a relative newcomer to the spread betting field. But with more than 200,000 registered traders and total trading volumes exceeding $50 billion per month, it is clear AvaTrade has built a strong international presence. A clear leader in the Forex and CFD trading markets, AvaTrade also offers spread betting services via its MetaTrader 4 platform.

Trading Market

With an AvaTrade account you can spread bet on over 200 different Forex pairs, commodities, indices, shares, ETFs and Bonds. You have access to a great range of currency pairs (over 60) including GBP/USD, AUD/CAD, EUR/USD, GBP/JPY, NZD/USD, EUR/GBP and more. Their commodities list includes crude oil, natural gas, gasoline, copper, silver, gold, corn, wheat, and cotton as well as many more.

Spread Betting Platforms

As a leading provider of technical solutions to online trading, AvaTrade offers a range of platforms for Forex and CFD traders and the sophisticated MetaTrader 4 account to spread betting clients. The MetaTrader 4 account offers a highly customisable experience with powerful charting and analytical tools. AvaTrade’s MT4 platform provides you with over 30 analytical tools (such as Fibonacci levels) and is compatible with Expert Advisor (EA) technology for free access to automated trading signals.


AvaTrade Spread Betting Platform


AvaTrade also offers MT4 account holders the choice between fixed or floating spreads. Whilst less predictable and slightly more risky, the floating spread account does offer a lower minimum spread.

AvaTrade also offers the MT4 Mobile App which is available for iOS devices (smartphone and tablet), Android devices (smartphone and tablet) and Windows Phone. Being able to monitor your spreads and trading account at any time and from anywhere is definitely a bonus.

On top of the demo account, it is clear that trader education has been taken care of at AvaTrade with a wealth of resources for both beginners and novice traders.
