The Company. Security of Funds





AAA Trade Ltd.




Founded in 2013, AAA Trade is a forex broker, offering multiple assets for trade, including various currency pairs and a wide range of CFDs on indices, stocks and commodities on the MT4 platform.

AAA Trade Ltd., trading under the brand AAA Trade, is a fully licensed EU-based investment firm, authorised and regulated by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC).

CySEC applies certain requirements to license holders and sees to the compliance with the rules set. For instance, customer funds must be held in segregated accounts. Besides, the Commission requires forex brokers to hold at least €1,000,000 as a proof of good financial standing.

As a further guarantee to clients’ funds, all CySEC-regulated companies are members of the Investor Compensation Fund, which is able to pay compensation to its covered clients up to 20,000 EUR, in the event a regulated broker becomes insolvent or ceases trading.

Moreover, every CySEC-regulated investment company is also MiFID compliant and therefore entitled to offer cross-border services within the EU under the MiFID Passporting Regime.

Trading Conditions

Minimum Initial Deposit

In order to open an account with AAA Trade, traders have to invest a minimum of $500, which is average for the market. Yet, other Cyprus-based brokers require lower minimum initial deposits. For instance, Easy-forex demands $25 and FXTM – just $5 from its clients as a start. Obviously this broker`s target group is institutional and high-volume traders, taking into account that the minimum trade size is 0.1 (mini lots).

Spreads & Commissions

AAA Trade offers fixed spreads, which are comparatively good - 1.8 for the EUR/USD pair, while most fixed-spread brokers offer a spread of 2 pips or higher for this pair.


In comparison, Exness provides fixed spreads amounting to 1.7 pips and variable ones on EUR/USD are averaged 0.4 pips on EUR/USD, plus a commission of to $ 2.5 per standard lot (per side). For more information, you may look up real-time spreads of 15 leading brokers here.

The maximum leverage level offered by AAA Trade is  1:200, which is considered a industry standard ratio. However, many Cyprus-based brokers offer even higher levels - for example, XM provides leverage up to 1:888 and FXTM – up to 1:1000. Check out a list of brokers, providing leverage equal to or exceeding 1:500 here.

Nonetheless, we advise traders to exercise caution when trading on margin, as higher leverage involves greater risk of losses, which may even exceed the initial investments.

MT4 is an internationally acclaimed trading terminal, offering a full spectrum of trading tools and resources: a number of built-in technical indicators, advanced charting package, a wide range of Expert Advisors (EAs) and extensive back-testing options.

Finally a broker I can trade with ETFs securities and bonds in a single platform.

Good trading platform, good service, having said that it took few days until my account was verified.

CEO of AAATrade Alexis Hilton, never, ever responded to any of my emails, I pleaded for his help !

I was in deep trouble, trying to locate a Scam broker, who guided me to AAAtrade to transfer my money to them through AAAtrade in Cyprus, on any desk, even though my transfer clearly showed "OMC Markets" as the recipient of these funds through AAAtrade. I pleaded to Alexis Hilton months ago, to try to track/trace this company, OMC Markets, but he never responded, gave me no guidance, advice, or sympathy, in his role as CEO of AAAtrade, he "hung me out to dry",and now all the money has gone. I was so disappointed at his lack of human kindness and empathy, as an old age pensioner, but most significant, was his lack of response to my emails, a disgrace, and he showed his lack of leadership to all other employees in AAAtrade, that I reached out to, as they also did not respond to my "cry for help", as they will have to "follow their leader", misguided as it may be. Sincerely, Mary Hanley

BEWARE Money Laundering scamming company

This company allowed other people to deal without my signature of consent. They are used for money laundering. I lost many Thousands through them. DO NOT trust them. They will deny knowledge of these activities, but they are part of the theft from your accounts, and scams.

Pienaar Fourie 07/06/2019

Fake fake fake, warning they do excelent but also ok reviews

david McCracken 06/04/2019 scam

looks like I just got scam for 15,000$ by someone thought I know that I may never see that money again but perhaps this is something you may want to look into as they are using aaatrade to scam customers.

Everything Solved

I got in touch with customer support and asked to be in contact with Sara.

It turns out I was not able to fund the account because I submitted an expired document ignored the questionnaire.

To the misleading comments I would like to say I have since tested the deposit and withdrawals and everything is fine.

Although my mistake made me not able to fund, this tells me they are strict with complying with EU regulations.

I can name a few brokers where I had (Still have) issues withdrawing, not funding.

Beware, you may never see your money again

I invested only a small amount of money, £250, in what I thought was the purchase of Swedish crypto currency. Setting up my account with AAA was complex and needed a customer service agent to guide me on line. Once the account was set up, my money was transferred overnight, without my knowledge to CoinPro Exchange, an unlicensed CFD broker, who does not buy and sell crypto currency. At that point I was harassed to increase my investment to $2000 on the basis that they would work with me to increase my investment. Alarm bells rang and I refused to proceed and requested my money back. This was 17 July 2018. As I write this,it is now 21 August 2018 and, despite numerous e-mails and lengthy on-line chats, I have not been paid. They now don't even respond to my e-mails. My next move is now to report them to CySEC.

Unfortunately this trading platform is a scam. They would not give me back my money. I am very disappointed. They are unprofessional and just want you to make a £500 deposit and then you don't hear from them again. If you join them be very aware. Never again for me.

Maxley Barrett 12/05/2017

AAATrade: bad execution

I think it's scam brokers new and newbie.. Very bad execution and unprofessional staff... In Indonesia no local deposit/withdrawal and still can't find if the office in Indonesia work or not, know that previously it was Alpari office and it was much more better and professional, direktur Lily and tutor Imam also man whom I saw several times from Russia don't already remember his name but was very professional and with professional approach. Now I can't find them

Good broker, precise technical analysts they care for the client.

I've opened an account with them in February and since then I've being trading CFDs, back then they had around 200 assets to choose from, now they give you the ability to trade 1000 CFD assets.
Also, since I've joined they have changed their website to a brand new one and im now enjoying a totally new experience on the trading platform. The old website was so terrible. But fortunately the new one is amazing. During the time that they changed their website and all their systems, I had to face a few issues e.g. I was not being able to deposit via PayPal, however the issue was fixed within a day and their customer support has been very responsive and helpful.
They provide good educational material but this is only accessible if you are a registered client. Also my personal agent is educated enough in order to be able to guide me around things im not very sure about.
Needless to say, I follow their daily technical analysis which is uploaded on their website and is available for free every morning. I have to admit that they provide a simple and easy to read prediction and in many cases their predictions are true. They have a good Technical Analyst in house.
They have good pricing, commissions and margin requirements. You can also maintain more than 1 accounts under the same name.
They don't give any bonuses and they comply with CySec rules. Most important for me is that i know my funds are secured with top tier 1 banks. Although they are quite new in the industry that have a lot to offer and they seem to care about the client on a personal level.

AAATrade: The worst

AAATrade provides one of the worst available conditions for trading!

I have tried 23 different brokers (20 demos & 3 live) and found AAATrade one of the worst one.
I nearly doubled my other 2 live accounts (even 3 times I doubled 3 demo account of AAATrade), but I got stopped-out several times on my AAATrade live account in the same time!!!
When it comes to the real money, they arm themselves for you ;)

Here are what I found interesting during my 1 year+ experience with AAATrade:

1- Different chart data
There are several long wicks on some candles that you can’t see in any other broker or Treading View’s chart. (They acknowledge this “… prices may significantly differ from broker to broker as Forex Market is decentralized and each broker may have its own pool of Liquidity Providers… ”)
2- Wobbling of spreads
For a particular pair, for example, they say minimum spread is 0.1 and average spread is 1.2 but actually the minimum spread is 2.0 and even you can’t see this spread for few seconds, it’s changing rapidly all the time.
3- Margin / leverage adjustment during open/close sessions, news and weekends.
3 hours before closing of Friday session, they double margin requirements (this caused me margin call while my margin level was %500)
4- Ridiculus widening of spreads
Sometimes widening of their spread during news events, reaches to 10 times higher and can hit your stop-loss or even stop you out.
5- The margin requirements differ for different instruments
6- Restriction of trade (and frozen charts) 10 min before market close and 15 minutes on opening (Monday session).
7- Disconnecting from server few times a day, especially during news event or volatile market conditions.
8- Limited chart / data on demo accounts.
9- There are hidden fees everywhere e.g.for Deposit and Withdraw.
10- Robotic support / live chat
They don’t read or care what you’re typing or asking, they just copy and paste pre-defined answers.

I choose AAATrade for 2 reasons only. They have huge liduidity & reliability. I've been trading with them since 2015 and until now I am very pleasedOnly disadvantages is that their maximum leverage is just 1:200, they don't give bonuses and their website is old.

Alexander Viggo 05/15/2017

Too Many Options

I have account in two brokers. One of them is AAATrade. Their website is not so good in terms of experience and looks old, however their support is great and most important they offer soo many options to trade.

Pros: Spreads, Deposit Withdraw, Customer Service
Cons: Website

AAA Trade is worth using it.

I have been trading the last 5 years on many companies but this is the first time i have seen anything like this. AAA Trade have the only MT4 platform with 1000 assets, I have never see in my life of trading so many assets on MT4 platform. Perfect communication center and Customer Services. From B2B to B2C and they know how to manage your requests. Just Beautiful.
