New Member
cTrader offers advanced trading capabilities with fast entry and execution, asynchronous order processing, level two pricing, a full range of advanced order types, an abundance of information to support risk management and help investors to make smarter trading choices.

Fast Entry and Execution

Traders grade your service based execution quality and speed. Your success will depend on how fast you can fill orders, with cTrader orders are filled in just milliseconds. cTrader supports simultaneous order processing, multiple orders can be filled at once, there’s no order queue.

Level II Pricing

cTrader’s depth of market shows the full range of executable prices coming directly from liquidity providers. Orders are filled against the full order book using Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP).

Advanced Order Protection

Choice of Trigger Methods

Pending Orders, Stop Loss and Take Profits can be triggered by the opposite side, second consecutive price and even second consecutive opposite price to protect against harmful erroneous prices.

Advanced Order Protection

Advanced Take Profit can be used to scale out of a position at multiple levels, Stop Loss can be set to break-even and Server Trailing Stops can be used to follow profitable positions.

Stop Out Type

cTrader offers two stop out types. Smart Stop Out gives the best chance of recovery in the unfortunate event that margin falls below stopout level. The largest margin taking position will be partially closed to maintain the position and the entry point. This algorithm protects margin, positions and balance. Fair Stop Out closes the largest margin taking position entirely as opposed to the most unprofitable position. This method frees as much margin as possible to protect the remaining positions.

Quick Trade

Quick Trade can be used to open, close and modify orders using either one or two clicks from every section of the platform allowing traders to respond quickly to fast moving markets.

Volume Tooltips

When selecting the volume of an order it’s important to know the Pip value, commission cost and margin required without the fuss of working it out, especially when a portfolio includes multiple asset-classes with varying conditions. Volume tooltips keep traders informed.

Symbol Info

Information about symbols is critical, especially for stocks where variables can differ wildly by exchange. cTrader ensures traders are explicitly informed via symbol i-Windows which promote all properties including trading hours, Lot size, base and quote asset, commissions, swaps, etc.

Market Snapshot

Deal tickets include a snapshot of the order book to help traders understand the price their order was filled at. Furthermore every Deal, Order or Position ticket contains up to 50 fields of information and a detailed timeline of events to ensure traders stay informed at every step.


Unlimited watchlists can be created to save and categorise favorite symbols and keep the in the cloud to access from anywhere. Watchlists can be can be detached and moved around the workspace to monitor prices and trade when opportunity strikes

Market Sentiment

A live market sentiment indicator displays the ratio of long versus short positions of all other trades using cTrader across all supported brokers. This tool is perfect to help with making a decision to enter or exit the market, or not.

Email Alerts

Traders can configure a range of email alerts to get notified about important events in their account. Available alerts include Pending Orders, Stop Loss and Take Profits being triggered, deposits and withdrawals, Stop Out and up to three custom margin call alerts at different levels.
