Customers can choose from six trading plan types at Capital-Traders, namely, Basic, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Black. Leverage from 1:25 up to 1:200 is provided for margin trading, thereby increasing profit potential from trading with Capital-Traders. Details are not given on the website for the exclusive Black trading account, as it’s aimed at top investors who are required to contact an account manager for information. However, we saw that clients with Capital-Traders accounts are not charged fees or commissions for trading and can access 24/6 support. Typically, the broker receives revenue from the spreads it chooses for the underlying assets on the trading platform. Spreads are the difference between the Bid (sell) and Ask (buy) prices on the platform. At Capital-Traders, we saw spreads from 3 pips for the popular EUR/USD currency pair, and wider spreads for less popular FX currency pairs.

Cryptocurrency CFDs at Capital-Traders
The Capital-Traders platform offers multiple cryptocurrency CFDs including Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ripple and Ethereum paired with the Euro and US Dollar. The greatest advantage of trading contracts for difference (CFDs) in cryptocurrencies, is that traders do not need to own the physical assets to potentially profit from the volatile cryptocurrency markets. In our experience, trading in underlying assets and potentially profiting from typically large up or down changes in prices, can be more rewarding than committing funds to the ownership of the actual cryptocurrencies.
