  1. Capital Traders

    Capital-Traders is an unlicensed financial services broker, specializing in CFD/FX trading in cryptocurrency assets, as well as investments in initial coin offerings (ICOs). Capital-Traders began operating in September 2017, providing traders with a simple, browser-based trading platform and mobile trading app for seamless trading on the go. A broad choice of commission-free trading accounts is available, meeting the requirements of all traders, from beginners to seasoned professionals. Notably, clients can deposit in Bitcoin, Ethereum or other cryptocurrencies, when setting up live trading accounts, and trade in cryptocurrency CFDs/FX. Capital-Traders is not a cryptocurrency exchange where traders purchase and sell physical cryptocurrency assets, but a platform for trading in price movements in cryptocurrencies.

    Clients registering an account with Capital-Traders can choose from six account classes depending on their personal needs and aspirations. Information about the Basic, Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum accounts is given on the website, but to find out about the exclusive Black account, traders must contact an account manager at Capital-Traders. Importantly, traders can access leverage from 1:25 to 1:200 for margin trading. However, the level of leverage depends on the type of asset traded and indicated on the trading platform with individual asset information. We were pleased to see that Capital-Traders does not charge trading fees or commission to its customers but incorporates brokerage costs into the pip spreads shown for each asset on the trading platform.

    Trading Cryptocurrency CFDs/FX at Capital-Traders

    Traders are offered a very broad range of potentially profitable cryptocurrency trading opportunities by Capital-Traders, without needing to buy the physical crypto assets themselves. Clients can trade in price movements in cryptocurrency markets by investing in contracts for difference (CFDs), potentially profiting from the crypto market volatility. Importantly, traders can profit from both upward and downward movements in crypto markets, making CFD trading in cryptocurrencies rewarding, whatever the circumstances.

    Capital-Traders Trading Software

    Whilst Capital-Traders does not give the name of the trading platform provided for online trading, we believe that traders are given access to the web-based ‘TraderSoft’ platform, featuring ultra-fast trade execution speed and a customisable interface. Moreover, the platform is reputed to provide a broad range of charts and analytical tools, as well as price alerts.

    Clients can trade in cryptocurrency CFDs and crypto FX, the speciality of Capital-Traders, as well as traditional financial asset classes, such as stocks, indices and commodities. Importantly, CFD trading lets customers profit potentially from any movements in crypto markets, irrespective of whether prices move up or down.

    Notably, the TraderSoft platform is very easy to use, making it easy for beginners in online trading. Nevertheless, it is sophisticated enough to fulfil the requirements of experienced traders.

    Especially useful is the intuitive interface with a smart activity dashboard and the risk-management tools that we consider invaluable for novice traders. Setting ‘Stop-loss’ and ‘Take-profit’ levels on the trading platform are an optimal way to guard against massive losses from extreme market volatility. By setting these parameters on the trading platform, positions are closed automatically if asset prices move above or below the pre-set levels.

    We saw that the Capital-Traders platform provides real time market prices and live data feeds to all account classes. However, clients with more ‘expensive’ trading accounts, receive trading signals to assist with online trading from PIAfirst, a third-party signals provider.

    Capital-Traders Customer Support

    Instant support is provided to customers 24/5 over the live chat service directly on the interface. However, for clients who prefer a phone discussion, there’s an Estonia number provided on the contact page, and the possibility to request a free call back at a time that suits you personally. Alternatively, customers can write to the email address provided on the contact page and await a reply. The Capital-Traders operational office is open from 7 am to 9 pm GMT, Monday to Friday. We consider the extensive educational material provided free to customers an excellent form of support to customers. The Education Centre accessible from the Capital-Traders dashboard offers E-Books about various cryptocurrencies. Importantly, the books include info about trading strategies and cryptocurrency management.

    Capital-Traders Payment Methods

    Customers can choose to fund their accounts using Visa, Mastercard and Mastercard SecureCode credit/debit cards. Also bank wire transfer, paysafecard, QIWI, Skrill, Neteller, Web Money and Yandex. Moreover, customers may choose to deposit in a broad range of cryptocurrency assets including Bitcoin and Ethereum from a digital wallet. To access information about the deposit and withdrawal fees charged by Capital-Traders, customers need to have a live account.

    Following the opening of a live trading account, clients are requested to submit to Capital-Traders, copies of official ID documents such as a passport or driver’s license, as well as a utility bill or bank statement proving the client’s address. The information is required to verify the customer’s account and in compliance with anti-money laundering regulations, and the company’s ‘know-your-customer’ policy. Traders using a credit card to fund their Capital-Traders accounts must photocopy the card front and back, after blocking the CVV security code and all but the last 4 digits of the card number. Importantly, customer funds are protected in segregated bank accounts, apart from accounts used for company operations.

    We saw that withdrawal requests are processed within 3-7 business days, as long as all the necessary account verification documents have been submitted to the broker and are in order. Withdrawals using a bank wire transfer must be at least $100 per transaction and $50 using other payment methods. It’s important to realise that funds are sent back to the account from which they came to Capital-Traders, and by the same payment method.

    Capital-Traders is a non-regulated Forex broker, owned by Bravos OU, Harju Maakond, Tallinn, Kesklinna Linnaosa, Roosikrantsi tn 2-K050, 10119 Estonia. The operational address is at Tornimae 5, Tallinn, 10145 Estonia. The company complies with AML/KYC regulations and uses advanced encryption technology to protect customer data and financial transactions.
