I am very happy with this platform and find it very easy to use for my trading needs. also arranged a series of trading webinars last summer, which I attended and benefited from.

Trusted trading Platform is the most trusted trading platform I ever experienced. Even without taking any demo,I have started funding and it’s going well. It is a very easy platform for the beginners and can have better trading experience by using this


great app, love the weekly and monthly insights, and review they send about my trading habits. spread for gold is usually 0.3 but at times fluctuates up to 0.9 this often makes it hard trading on the low time frames and not losing my position to spread even if my bias was correct, if the spread was better I'd give 5 star.

chris hoeben is the best broker of all time and I Should give it five stars but there is a small issue about execution of my orders through traddingview it is a bit slow. But the execution of orders directly from the App or Website is absolutely fast and apart from that everything is simple incredible.
