Trade Sizes

Unfortunately, this information is not available on the site however we would assume that the minimum trade size is 0.,01 lots, and would go up in increments of 0.01 lots. We can’t speculate on what the maximum trade size is or how many open trades you can have at any one time.

Trading Costs

This is another aspect that we cannot comment on, there is no mention of commissions or even spread on the site so we do not know what the costs are. We also do not know if there are any swap charges but we would assume that there are.

Assets

There is not a full breakdown or product specification available, what we can see is that there are Forex, Indices, Commodities, and Bonds available, there are a few examples of each but that is it.

  • Forex: EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDJPY, USDCHF, AUDUSD, USDCAD.
  • Indices: SPX 500,m Nasdaq 100, Dow Jones, Nikkei 225, DAX, FTSE 100.
  • Commodities: E-Mini S&P, Euro, Gold, Crude Oil, Natural Gas, Corn.
  • Bonds: Eurodollar, T-Bond, Ultra T-Bond, Euro Bund, Euro BTP, Euro BOBL.

Spreads

This is another aspect that we do not know about due to this information not being known the overall trading cost is also not known to us.

Minimum Deposit

The minimum deposit required to open up an account is $250 which will get you the Basic account, if you want a higher tier account then you will need to deposit at least $2,500 for the Standard account.

Deposit Methods & Costs

You can use a few methods including Credit/Debit Cards, Wire Transfer, WebMoney, and Local Payment Methods. We do not know of any potential fees that come with depositing but be sure to check with your own bank or processor to see if they add any fees of their own.

Withdrawal Methods & Costs

We do not have any concrete information on withdrawals but we would expect the same methods to be available, the main method preferred by Trader Platinum is Bank Wire Transfer. We also do not know of any potential fees added by Trader Platinum.

Withdrawal Processing & Wait Time

We also do not know anything about the processing of withdrawal requests, it states that you can do it anytime you want but no timescales are offered, we would hope that it would be between 1 to 7 days from the date of the request.

Bonuses & Promotions

There is a bonus available up to 200% as stated on the account comparison page however it is not mentioned anywhere else on the site and so we do not know what the full terms of the bonus are or how easy it is (if at all possible) to convert the bonus funds into real funds.

Educational & Trading Tools

There are a few different sections relating to tools and education, the first is some eBook, they cover subjects such as Forex Chart Patterns and Day Trading, there are 6 in total to download. There is then a glossary that tells you the meaning of trading-related terms so if you come across anything you do not understand you can refer to this page. 

In terms of analysis, there is a news section that was last updated in December 2019, there are also live signals, these are simple buy or sell indicators taken from TradingView. The economic calendar provides you with information about upcoming news events and any potential impact they have on the markets. Next up are some live charts which you can guess, are just live charts of the markets and the final section contains some calculators including pips, position size, profit, and a currency converter.

Customer Service

The usual methods of contact are available, there is an online form to fill in, there is also a postal address available along with an email and phone number. We do not know what the opening times of the support department are though.

Demo Account

It does not seem like demo accounts are available from Trader Platinum.

Countries Accepted

This information is not present on the site, so if you are thinking of joining we would recommend contacting the customer service team to see if you are eligible for an account or not.

Conclusion

TraderPlatinum offers a wide range of accounts each having different perks but just the one trading platform in the form of MetaTrader 4. There is a lot of information missing from the site in regards to trading conditions as well as tradable assets, there is also enough information missing regarding the funding and withdrawals from the account to make us suggest looking elsewhere for your trading needs.
