Alpari Adds Forex Signal Trading on MT4

Jul 15 2013

 It seems that there's no such thing as a slow Monday at Alpari; the broker has just come up with a bunch of news about its services: it has now launched signal trading on MT4, a brand new economic calendar has been integrated with company's website, and the ECN account type available to the clients of Alpari UK is being changed as well. 


MT4 signals service launched

A while ago the publisher of the Metatrader 4 (MT4) platform introduced a module for trading signals – and that was probably a very smart move given that social trading and signal copying is a big thing these days, and gets even bigger. 
This module is now accessible for Alpari's MT4 traders, who can subscribe for signal feeds straight from the trading platform, and can also become signal providers themselves and collect monthly subscription fees for their alerts. 
Speaking of fees, it is up to signal providers to decide whether to charge for their broadcasts, so some signals can be followed for free, while others are paid.
To make things easier, the broker has put together a tutorial explaining the steps you need to follow in order to subscribe for the service. 
Social trading is nothing new for Alpari – the broker has been offering copy-trading through the ZuluTrade and Mirror Trader platforms for ages, however this is the first time when trade mirroring is possible through the MT4 platform. In theory the fact that the signals don't have to go through a couple of different platforms can decrease latency and ensure better results for the traders, however I have not tried the MT4 signals myself and I can't tell if this is true in practice. 

Alpari teams up with Fxstreet to offer economic calendar

I'm sure fundamental traders would appreciate the new calendar introduced by Alpari in partnership with Fxstreet. The calendar is pretty comprehensive and offers an overview of all economic events taking place in Europe, the USA, Japan, Australia and other developed countries. Novice traders can also benefit from the information there, since the calendar also features information on what impact each featured event is expected to have on the markets and different currencies. Charts and tables showing economic indicator levels over time are also available. 

Alpari UK's ECN account gets renamed to MT5

Metatrader 5 (MT5) is the only platform, on which Alpari UK offers ECN trading for non-professional investors – and the broker has decided that it's justified for its ECN account to be named a MT5 account. If you're asking me, that doesn't really matter but hey – there's really no harm in changing the name. The rest of the account characteristics will remain unchanged and it will continue supporting leverage of up to 1:500, variable spreads starting from 0 pips, market depth, no commission trading, etc.
Professional investors can also take advantage of the Alpari's Currenex-powered ECN accounts, available with the AlpariDirect and AlpariDirect Pro platforms.
