FP Markets has added cTrader to its suite of trading tools. The forex and CFD platform has proven a popular alternative to the MetaTrader suite, with advanced features and a modern design.

Key Takeaways

  • Clients of FP Markets can access cTrader on desktop and mobile, including iOS and Android devices.
  • Users can trade 10,000+ assets covering forex, stocks, indices, commodities, ETFs, bonds and crypto.
  • cTrader offers a powerful charting package for active traders with 70 indicators, 8 chart styles and timeframes from 1 minute to 1 month.
  • The platform also provides reliable execution, level II pricing and a selection of order types.

Powerful Features For Serious Traders

cTrader is a trading platform and charting solution from technology provider, Spotware. It is designed for multi-asset trading and offers sophisticated tools for active investors.

cTrader’s key selling point is its charting capabilities. With 50+ timeframes, 30+ analytical objects, 70+ integrated indicators and more solutions available through cTrader Automate and the cTrader Store, it is great for technical analysis.

Compared to traditional platforms like MetaTrader 4, cTrader also provides superior market depth. While MT4 has one market depth feature, cTrader offers three: Standard, price and VWAP. This provides a clearer view of market liquidity at different price points, supporting entry timings.

cTrader also has a slick design with a clean and intuitive layout. Users can access all key trading tools from the primary workspace, including MarketWatch, TradeWatch and the Instruments Toolbar.

How To Use cTrader

New users can get started with cTrader in a few steps:

  1. Open an FP Markets trading account (Standard or Raw).
  2. A cTrader (cTID) will be given for each trading account. This will provide access to cTrader at all supporting brokers.
  3. Sign in to the platform to start trading. I recommend beginners try the platform in demo mode first.
