cTrader is an ECN forex trading platform developed by Spotware. Since its launch cTrader has become a platform of choice for many major ECN brokers like Pepperstone and a serious competitor of the famous MetaTrader platform. Visually, the cTrader platform is extremely clean and attractive. The designers have gone to great lengths to make the interface intuitive and easy to use.
cTrader is the first retail forex trading platform to offer three types of market depths (order book). The standard depth allows aggregate quotes from liquidity providers to be viewed to help traders become familiar with market dynamics. The depth of the prices shows the available liquidity for each price. The depth of the VWAP (Volume-weighted average price) shows the average price exchanged for a certain period.
CTrader’s charts offer 26 time units and 6 zoom levels to suit all trading strategies. A double click at the top of each graph makes it possible to place an order very quickly. The platform has all the necessary tools for technical analysis (trend indicators, oscillators, volatility measures, etc.) It is also possible to create custom indicators via the cAlgo algorithmic trading platform.
All graphics are detachable and act as a stand-alone desktop application. Where other platforms only show the average price or the Bid / Ask lines, cTrader shows both the buy / sell lines on each chart, as well as the entry points, stop loss and take profit which are Editable directly on the graph.
For short-term traders and scalpers, cTrader can display charts in ticks with a new bar for each tick or with an aggregated view of up to 55 ticks per bar.
The cAlgo platform, which is integrated with cTrader, enables the creation of trading robots and customized technical indicators in a way very similar to the Expert Advisors used on the Metatrader platform.
cMirror is a mirror trading application that allows traders to offer their trading strategies and signals. Other traders (investors) can copy the strategies automatically into their trading account.
Trading Central constantly analyzes more than 7000 values. Every day, specialized analysts propose investment strategies for all asset classes: equities, indices, currencies, commodities and interest rates.
Trading Central’s data showing likely scenarios are fully integrated into the cTrader platform. Trading signals can be created quickly in the direction of the most likely scenario with a Take Profit and Stop Loss suggested by Trading Central.
The platform is available for mobile and tablet devices, which means there are versions for Android and iOS. These mobile versions include a lot of the features of the desktop version. In addition to mobile support, there is also a web version that compares very favorably with the competition. cTrader therefore provides all the necessary support for traders who want to be permanently connected to the markets.
