ZenTrader is a relatively new binary options broker that offers clients a different experience when trading. The main company, ZT Markets Limited, is registered in St Vincent and the Grenadines under the registration number 25071 IBC2018. This is a popular offshore zone for brokers as it offers easy registration, low taxes and companies don’t need to meet any regulatory requirements. Potential clients should always be aware of such information as there is a risk involved in dealing with this kind of broker.
ZenTrader state that this company was founded with the goal of creating the best trading experience for its clients. They claim to have the highest payouts on winning trades, a knowledgeable support team, and fast deposits and withdrawals. Clients can trade Currency pairs, Equity Indices, Commodities, Single stocks and also Crytpo. You won’t find a list of accounts available through this broker as they only offer 1 type of account that, in their words, is perfect for beginners as well as experienced traders.
This broker only offers 1 single account platform, but with two types of options, Classic and On-Demand. Not much information is given regarding this account, apart from minimum investment requirement and maximum payouts reaching 200%. The payouts are based upon the asset being traded and the particular time frame. When we spoke to their live chat they explained that clients would be able to see the payout before entering the trade. This account seems to be directed towards short-term traders that like flexibility as well the convenience offered by a fixed schedule.
On the other hand, this makes this broker not appealing to traders looking for long-term trading. When using this account, clients can trade Forex, Commodity, precious metals, single stocks, and stock indices. The minimum trade size for Zentrader’s account is just $5 and the maximum exposure per account is $25,000 or equivalent.
The Classic High/Low options run on a fixed time schedule (15min, 30min, 1hour and 1 day) traders may enter or exit at any time up until the no-trading point just before expiry. On the other hand, if clients go for the On-Demand option, the countdown of the selected time frame, whether 30sec, 60sec, 3min or 5min begins when the trade is entered into. If you need more information about these options, you can speak to their efficient and informed live chat which we will be discussing soon further on in the review.
ZenTrader offers its own trading platform that can be used via a web browser, mobile web app, and Android. Potential clients can have a look at what the platform looks like by trying out the Platform Demo found on this broker’s website. The design is very minimal and easy to follow, which is great for new traders. Through this demo, clients can also see what the percentage payouts are on all assets provided by this broker in the top left part of the page.
On the bottom right corner, clients also have an updated news feed regarding the trading industry. According to their live chat, the demo platform and all the data and conditions you see on it are identical to the live platform. Although this platform seems easy to trade with, some traders might still want the option of using a more popular platform such as MT4 or MT5 but unfortunately, this is not available when using this broker.
This broker does not offer leverage but a payout percentage of up to 195% in 30 seconds. This refers to the total amount clients will receive back on any winning trade. For example, if a client placed 1 x ¥5000 trade on USD/JPY with a payout of 195% and win, they will receive back ¥9750. The ¥5000 investment + ¥4750 profit. Obviously, for losses, the same numbers are applied. The payout percentage is based upon the asset being traded as well as the timeframe. You can find out the payout percentages through their Demo platform. Investors should be wary of such high returns as this brings along with it great risks.
The minimum trade size with this broker is very affordable at $5 whilst the maximum trade size is $1000.
There is no mention of commissions or fees applicable to clients on ZenTraders site. To make sure, we asked their live chat and they confirmed that no commissions are applied when trading with this broker.
ZenTrader offers quite a large variety of assets to choose from including the currency pairs, commodities, indices, single stocks as well as cryptocurrencies. We’ve listed down some of the available assets below.

We cannot comment on this as it seems Zentrader does not use spreads.
The minimum deposit required to open up an account with this broker is $50 or equivalent. Although there are brokers who have a smaller minimum deposit, $50 is quite affordable to many traders, even those just starting out in the business.

Clients wanting to deposit funds into their ZenTrader accounts can do so via a number of methods. Local bank transfers are probably the simplest way to do so and deposits through this method are typically credited to the client’s account instantly, but this depends on the country the client is located in.

Unlike most brokers, ZenTrader has a Platform Demo available on its website rather than an Account demo. The demo that they offer serves as an introduction to their own platform. On their platform, you can see all the basic information that you would need whilst trading in a simple and organized way. Trading currency, time frame, payout percentage, and account balance are visible on the platform’s main page.
Even though ZenTrader is a global broker, they do not accept clients from United States, Australia, China, Hong Kong, Estonia, Israel, Iran, North Korea, Palestine, Sudan, Syria or the Russian Federation. This list is subject to change due to increasing regulations. If you are interested in opening an account with ZenTrader you can see what current countries are accepted in the Country drop-down box found in the registration form.
ZenTrader is a new binary options broker that is registered offshore. They are different in the way they enable their clients to experience trading. Using their own platform, clients can experience a high payout of up to 195% which can be as rewarding as it is damaging, a quick and informative support team and no fees for deposits and withdrawals.
On the other hand, this broker only offers short-term options which make them quite limited for traders wanting more long term options. Potential clients may also find it difficult to gather important information regarding the single account that is being offered because most of the information is either missing or difficult to find.
Having said that, their support team is very quick and knowledgeable. ZenTrader also has an interesting Rewards scheme where clients can get cashback bonuses without actually doing anything else except trading. Keep in mind that this broker is unregulated and this might be a fact to consider when picking your broker of choice.
