The only platform on offer from Navitas Markets is MT4. MT4 is an all-in-one trading platform with a user-friendly interface and easy to use functionalities allowing traders to analyze the markets, place orders and manage their own risk all with a single click. Traders can also manage several trading accounts simultaneously, not to mention its cutting edge technology which includes a web-based solution enabling traders to trade at any time from any device and from anywhere in the world.
Both accounts can be leveraged up to 1:500 and this can be selected when opening up an account. You can request for it to be changed on an already open account by contacting the customer service team.
Trade sizes on both accounts start from 0.01 lots (known as a micro lot) and go up in increments of 0.01 lot so the next trade would be 0.02 lots and then 0.03 lots. We do not know what the maximum trade size is or how many trades you can have open at any one time.
There are no added commissions on either of the accounts as they use a spread based payment structure. There are swap fees that are charged for holding fees overnight, swap-free versions of each account are also available.

The spreads are variable which means they move with the markets, the more volatility in the markets the higher the spreads will be, different instruments and assets will also have different starting spreads.
The minimum deposit required is $50 which gets you the Classic account. If you want the Dynamic account you will need to deposit at least $5,000.

There is an infographic that just shows what forex trading is, some seminars, and a glossary of different trading-related terms. There is also an economic calendar detailing different news events and the effects they could have.

Practice accounts are available from Navitas Markets. When signing up for a demo account you can select a demo floating account with USD base currency, a choice of leverage between 1:1 and 1:500 and a balance from between 500 to 5,000,000. The demo account allows you to test the markets and new strategies without risking any of your own capital.
The following statement is available on the site: “NavitasMarkets does not offer its services to residents of certain jurisdictions such as USA, Iran, Cuba, Sudan, Syria, and North Korea.”
The two accounts on offer are not a whole lot different from each other. The only changes in the trading conditions are slightly lower spreads, but with the Classic account starting from 1 pip it isn’t a huge deal (although we expect the spreads to be quite a bit higher in reality). Plenty of assets are available to trade with which is good. There are added fees for withdrawing but the majority of them are quite low. It would still be nice to see these removed. Overall, Navitas Markets seems to tick off most of the boxes and should meet the needs of the vast majority of Forex traders.
