Platforms review

Trading platforms of the broker

Fxview offers some of the best trading software on the planet in the MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 to South African trades. On top of that, the ActTrader is also available on Fxview. These are three popular trading platforms among both novice and experienced traders. These platforms are popular as they come with many helpful charting tools that traders can use to analyze the markets. 

They also have fast order execution times. Pairing this with an ECN broker makes order execution much faster. Finally, these platforms are available on all kinds of devices, including PC, Web, iOS, and Android. However, ActTrader is not available on macOS. Still, most traders are catered for on this broker site. ZuluTrade is also available on Fxview which allows clients to copy the trades of other traders from across the globe.

Fees

Trading fees, Deposit bonus

Fxview is very transparent about the fees that apply when trading. The spreads on this platform are ultra-low, starting from 0.0 pips. However, like on other ECN brokers, a commission applies when trading. Clients here pay a commission of $1 per 100k traded. This is a competitive commission compared to the rates offered by other brokers in the market.

Fxview has a couple of promotions going on in order to make institutional trading conditions available to the masses. For starters, its Zero Cost Funding allows clients to fund their accounts with zero charges applied. The only charges that may apply are those charged by the financial institution handling the transaction such as a bank. 

On top of the Zero Cost Funding program, Fxview also has a 100% deposit bonus. For every deposit you make, the company credits your account with an equivalent amount. This allows you to take advantage of a larger margin and hence manage your risk more effectively. There is no special requirement to qualify for this promotion, all a client has to do is make a deposit.

So if you deposit the minimum deposit amount of $200, the available tradable amount on your account will be $400.
