interesting features

despite of all negative reviews it stil a good broker, several interesting features and their affiliate commission is one of highest in the market

Our favorite thing about FxPro remains the negative balance protection: a mechanism that automatically closes open positions, starting with the most unprofitable ones, when a trader is threatened by a margin call. In case a negative balance occurs due to trading, the broker covers it and doesn't hold traders responsible for the negative balance. This lets you focus on your strategy, rather than pointlessly worrying about losing your balance. 

 
FxPro is a Cypriot NDD forex broker operating out of Cyprus, the United Kingdom and Australia. It offers excellent trading conditions and the highest level of customer protection possible to ensure smooth, profitable and successful trading for its customers. Registered with CySEC, FSA UK and ASIC, FxPro is also a member of the Investment Compensation Fund (ICF) and the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). 
 
The platforms offered by FxPro are Metatrader 4 (MT4) and cTrader ECN – both quite popular and technically sophisticated to match pretty much every trader's needs. cTrader, powered by Spotware, is one of the best ECN trading platforms available on the market. It supports one-click dealing, market depth, Level II pricing, excellent charting and 30 technical indicators, paired up with lightning-fast execution. The platform grants traders access to 10 liquidity providers. 
 
FxPro's spreads are variable and begin at 0.8 pips for MT4 accounts (keep in mind that the typical spread on EUR/USD is around 1.8 pips, though) and at 0.1 pips for cTrader users (add to this a commission of $3 per lot). It is possible that these spreads widen during major news releases. 
 
Beginners can take advantage of the broker's educational resources – video tutorials, webinars, live hangouts, etc. For more advanced traders, there are additional analytical tools like Trading Central and Autochartist. Dow Jones news are integrated straight into the MT4 platform. 
 
Selected customers of FxPro are offered VIP services that include market recommendations, exclusive news reports, account margin alerts, etc.
