What we think about AGEA

AGEA is a forex broker previously known under the name Marketiva. Based in Montenegro, AGEA welcomes its new traders with some great perks: a $5 no deposit bonus, and a Refer-a-Friend program, with which you can earn up to $4,000. 

 
The broker offers traders choice between three trading platforms: MT4, MT5, and its own Streamster platform. 
 
Streamster is advertised as a platform most suitable for beginners – it is supposed to be really easy to navigate, and to be good for learning forex. The platform comes with integrated news feed, alerts, technical analysis tools and trading-from-charts capabilities. A feature that we find peculiar is the built-in multilingual chat where you can talk to other traders and the broker's customer support. Frankly, we find this chat to be nothing but one big mess, with messages coming in in a bunch of different languages and different conversations going on simultaneously in the same window but that's just our opinion. 
 
If you take a look at the account types offered by AGEA, you will quickly see that the broker's services were really designed with the newbies in mind. With a minimum deposit requirement of $1 and the possibility to trade as little as one currency unit (we admit it, this is pretty unique), it lets you get the hang of forex trading without risking a lot of money. 
 
What's interesting to note about this broker is its regulation. While forex is not regulated in Montenegro and OTC market making services are not supervised by the Securities Commission of the Republic of Montenegro (SCMN), the broker – even though not obliged to – tries to be compliant with the European Union's Makrets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID). This attempt is admirable but you should keep in mind that in case the broker goes bankrupt, there's no organization or regulator to protect you.

Traders` reviews for AGEA Add review


Marketiva is a good, easy to use forex trading platform for smaller account holders. Its main focus is on newer traders, who have somewhat different needs from experienced traders. It is also an excellent choice for Islamic traders because Marketiva is a "swap-free" forex broker, meaning that rollover, or swap interest is not applied to any positions held overnight, in line with Sharia Law. Within the trading platform is a chat program where traders can interact and exchange ideas about trading, and can also interact with support staff in several different languages. Higher end functionality is not available and liquidity can be a problem for larger orders, but a small retail trader is not likely to run into any problems. All new accounts receive $2.50 in their real money account just for registering.

Pros: No minimum deposits required, robust and flexible software, rewards upon opening an account, quality customer support

Cons: Limited currency pairs available, no Mac support

Review Summary : Marketiva is quite an attractive Forex broker particularly because the site does not require much to begin trading. Additionally, Marketiva’s rewards system, comprehensive software, and excellent customer support are additional features that members can take advantage of.

The maximum number of short-term positions (shorter than 5 minutes) a
trader can have in a 4-hour period is 10. If a trader closes more than 50
(you are at 53) short-term positions or more than 200 total positions in 7
consecutive days, such trader's account will be temporarily prevented from
sending new orders into the market.
