Reviewed by Bowen Khong, ACCA

FxPro competes with other top brokers in its brokerage services. It offers multiple platforms with slightly different features leaving you to choose which is best for you. The broker offers both MetaTrader 4 and 5, which makes it attractive to different traders. 

In this article, I will describe some of the broker’s features and why the broker should be a good choice for beginner and professional traders.

Overview 

FxPro was founded in 2006 by Denis Sukhotin with its headquarters in Karyatidon 1, Ypsonas 4180, Cyprus. It also has other offices in Cyprus, United Kingdom, Bahamas, and Monaco. The company has successfully expanded its retail and institutional trading services to more than 170 countries. FxPro became authorized and regulated by CySEC in 2007, FCA in 2010, and FSCA in 2015. [1]

The no dealing desk execution broker offers balanced trading conditions, excellent execution technology. You can trade CFD on a wide range of instruments, including forex pairs, stocks, metals, futures, energies and indices, and cryptocurrencies.

ProsCons
Free deposit and withdrawal 
Wide range of asset class
Active customer support 
Well regulated 
High commissions for some stock CFDs
The broker charges inactivity fee

Who is FxPro for? 

The broker offers free education that can help beginners get into trading and also has a platform that is easy to use. For this reason, I think that beginner traders will find them useful. We consider it a suitable platform for professionals as well due to its research tools, a wide range of instruments, professional platform, and many other qualities. 

So far, I have found the mobile and web versions are also reliable, which means that traders can trade from either of these platforms. 

Traders who are interested in using expert advisors will also be able to trade here. Expert advisors are compatible with the FxPro MT4, MT5, and traders.

Those who do not have trading experience can also profit through the copy trading program.

For this, I will conclude that the broker is suitable for all traders, no matter your level of knowledge or style of trading.

Indices: DJ30, GER30, S&P500, and more.

Shares: Major companies like Apple, Tesla, Facebook, and more.

Metals: Gold, GOLDoz, etc. I could not find metals like silver, copper on the platform. This might be excused as traders are usually more interested in trading gold.

Energies: Brent, WTI, NATGAS, and many more.

Cryptocurrencies: BATUSD, BCHUSD, DOGUSD, and many more. The broker does not offer to buy the underlying cryptocurrency assets. This means that you cannot buy BTC but can only trade it against a currency.

With this wide range of instruments, clients will have many options to choose from and will also be able to open different portfolios with this broker.

Commissions & Fees 

The broker does not charge commission on the MT4 or MT5 no matter the instruments traded. 

The only amount charged is the spread for each trade.

On the cTrader account, the broker charges a commission of 45USD for every 1 million USD traded upon a position. The commission here applies when trading forex and metals. The positive here is that the spreads on cTrader are lower than those charged on other account types.

The broker does not charge any fee for deposit and withdrawal on any of the accounts or platforms.

The pricing above shows that it is a relatively cheap trade with the broker.

Platforms & Tools 

The broker has MT4 and MT5, and they both have slightly different features. Some of the features they have in common include an easy-to-use interface, fully customizable charts, custom Expert Advisor; they both use trailing stops and are both available on Windows and Mac.

Metatrader 4: it has more than 50 preinstalled technical indicators and 50+ analytical starting tools. It allows the use of trailing stops, customized expert advisors, and indicators. It is available on both Windows and Mac.

Metatrader 5: The MT5 has more than 38 preinstalled technical indicators and 44 analytical charting tools, three chart types, and it works for various trading styles. The MT5 has 3 chart types and 21 timeframes ( more than that of the MT4).

It provides 55+ preinstalled technical indicators, 6 chart types and 28 timeframes, zero stop or limits level restrictions, trailing stops, advanced order protection, a news feed, and many other professional features.

Economic calendar: Economic calendar and news are also available on all the platforms to assist traders in making more informed trading decisions. It shows upcoming events that can guide traders in their technical analysis. 

Demo account: In addition to all these, there is a free demo account that also has the values of the live chat that can help new traders to form a strategy or help active traders test new strategies.

I believe that these are the regular features that brokers have, though some brokers have more advanced features. These features highlighted here  will make day-to-day regular trading with the broker smooth.

Trading news also contains analytics and opinions of different experts in the financial world. The analytics include technical analysis on various currency pairs, commodities, cryptocurrencies, and other assets, market reviews, and an overview showing what has happened in different markets and the possible expectations based on different markets.

The broker still trails industry leaders in its offering of research tools, and more research tools will be advantageous to its clients.

The broker has a free course for beginners and advanced traders. 

The beginners’ programs have key topics organized and clear. The education comes with online tests designed for self-assessment and has sound files to be downloaded after answering all questions. There is a free demo account where beginners can also test strategies.

The advanced courses are designed with a detailed focus on specific areas of trading. The courses include various aspects of fundamental analysis, tips on technical analysis, and how to combine indicators to form effective reading strategies. It is aimed at improving trading analysis.

Rating: 4/5

Mobile devices I.e apple, android, etc
FeaturesI.e. allow making trade, watchlist, charting, alert, etc.

Final Thoughts 

I found the brokerage services professional, and the platform is also user-friendly. The easy-to-use features and the advanced reading tools make it attractive for beginner and active traders.

Cryptocurrencies are quoted against fiat currencies only, and the option for those who wish to buy and hold cryptocurrency without leverage is not available. Some crypto faithful might not find this so attractive. 

The pricing and spread offered are optimal with the industry average, making the platform a good choice for traders.

With all the features highlighted, I would rate the broker high and recommend it to traders who intend to diversify their portfolios.
