There are two main systems for trading, one being manual trading with MetaTrader 4 and the other being a copy trading system, so let’s see what they offer.
MetaTrader 4 (MT4): Atirox recommends that its clients install the MetaTrader 4 terminal for FX trading. Professional traders have long considered the MT4 trading platform to be one of the most intuitive and functional platforms of all-time. This is exactly why today MetaTrader has grown to become the industry standard in the world of online forex trading. Traders who prefer algorithmic FX trading can easily customize their Expert Advisors and use them while trading on the Atirox servers. Atirox offers MT4 for traditional desktop (Windows & Mac) computers, as well as the most popular mobile platforms (Android & iOS).
Copy System: Atirox Copy System is a service of copying deals, which allows followers to copy the transactions of the most successful traders and in turn, traders get the opportunity to have an additional income by sharing their experience with their followers. Registration in the system and configure the copy parameters takes only a few minutes. The main advantage of the system is its reliability. The follower fully controls the situation, as the funds remain on his account. He sets up the system for his own needs and can independently cancel the copied transactions if, in his opinion, the transactions bear unreasonable risks.
The leverage that you get can depend on the account you are using, different accounts have different limits.
- Micro: 1:1000
- Fix: 1:500
- Classic: 1:500
- Pro: 1:500
The leverage can be selected when opening up an account, should you wish to change it on an already open account you will need to get in contact with the customer service team.
The minimum trade sizes on the Micro, Fix and Classic accounts is 0.01 lots (also known as a micro lot) they then go up in increments of 0.01 lots so the next trades are 0.02 lots and then 0.03 lots.
The starting trade size on the Pro account states that it is 0.1 lots, however on the product specification page it states 0.01 lots, but we will go with what is stated on the accounts plage. So the trades start at 0.1 lots and the incremental increase amount is not specified.
All account ahs a maximum trade size of 1,000 lots, however, we would recommend not trading in sizes larger than 50 lots, as the bigger a trade becomes the harder it is for the markets or liquidity provider to execute the trade quickly and without any slippage.
The Pro account is the only account with an added commission, it is $4 per lot traded which is lower than the industry standard of $6 per lot traded. All other accounts use a spread based system that we will look at later in this review.
There are also swap charges to contend with, these are interest charges that are incurred for holding trades overnight, they can be both negative or positive and can usually be viewed from within the trading platform of choice.

The spreads that you get depend on a few different factors first is the account you are using.
- Micro: From 3.0 pips fixed spread
- Fix: From 2.4 pips fixed spread
- Classic: From 1.1 pips variable spread
- Pro: From 0.05 pips variable spread
Fixed spreads mean that they do not change, they remain the same no matter what is happening in the markets. Variable (also known as floating) means that when the markets are being volatile, the spreads will often be seen higher. It is also important to note that different instruments and assets have different starting spreads, so while EURUSD may start at 1.1 pips, other assets like GBPJPY may start slightly higher, in this case, 1.4 pips.
The minimum deposit amount is $1 which is needed to open up the Micro account, all subsequent deposits also have the minimum requirement of $1.

The information about which countries are accepted and which are not is not present on the website, so if you are interested in joining, be sure to get in contact with the customer service team to check if you are eligible for an account or not.
Atirox has made it easy to find the information that you need, it is refreshing to see a broker laying out all the information needed in such an easy to find manner. The only bit of information that seemed to be missing (we may have missed it ourselves) is the withdrawal times, everything else is available in detail which is great to see. The trading conditions (apart from the Micro account) are very competitive and certainly make for good reading. Plenty of assets to trade as well as many different ways to deposit and withdraw, all without any added fees. Atirox certainly seems like a competent broker and one we would be happy to trade with.
