Thank you admiral for the high execution speed experience, Sanya was surprised and saluted. From experience using EA scalping for 8 years, only this broker has the best execution and has not experienced serious problems. When I was confused about understanding the market, this broker provided high-quality education and webinars that made me quickly understand the market conditions and what I was dealing with at that time. they are licensed. Deposits and withdrawals happen quickly too, that's all I need, at this broker, I just have to complete all the paperwork when they ask for it.

Aaron Ryan
Switzerland Dec 25 2022

Why is it so hard to stop loss orders, I experienced trading losses because of this. Such features should be upgraded at this broker. During my time as a trader, this is the first time I have had trouble dealing with losses, just because the broker's features are not sophisticated enough. And yes why is the withdrawal taking so long, what's wrong here? I asked by calling but there hasn't been a satisfactory response. I just want certainty, so I'm not too worried and calmer in dealing with situations like this. If only there was a solution and a good response from the admiral.

Ken Blanco
Singapore Dec 25 2022

Impeccable analytical material plus good educational services are the complete packages at this broker. This is what I felt the first time I tried Admiral. But why are the deposit fees quite high on some accounts? I feel uncomfortable and worried as a newbie client. The system is quite bad compared to other brokers, and a bit out of date. Only closing positions must be done manually, needing manual monitoring 24/7 again. Very tiring and enough to make me worry about losing funds again if a system like this continues.

Yasmine Cloe
India Dec 25 2022

Thank you admiral for the perfect support and response speed. This kind of team support is what I need, quite a lot of education for me as a novice trader, both in terms of trading strategy, technical and fundamental analysis, fully explained here. It was a very memorable experience for me. If only this broker provided deposits using a local bank, of course it would be quite interesting because it makes it easy to deposit, especially for novice traders in the world of trading.

Glenn Steven
Switzerland Dec 25 2022

Well, registering for an account at Admiral is quite fast and easy, fully digital again and without the hassle. But yeah, it's a shame why there are fewer CFD instrument commodities than the others. It should be balanced because there are also a lot of people interested in these instruments (including me). But I really salute the team's support, quite professional, and answer technical questions easily. Everyone would like a quick response when there is a problem, this makes me feel safer and feel safe and comfortable in the admiral... Even so, it's a shame that stop-loss orders are not guaranteed at the broker. I'm a little worried...

Clara Maura
Singapore Dec 25 2022

I really really like the volatility protection, I am a crypto trading enthusiast who has quite high volatility and prices that move quite fast. Sometimes I worry about the volatility in crypto, but I'm happy when I know that Admiral has volatility protection. This feature is very good in my opinion. With the unpredictable volatility in crypto, I feel safe with this protection with stop-loss orders or limiting price slippage in the market. admiral with this unique feature helps me as a trader who is easily worried about volatility in trading instruments. Well, even though the cryptocurrency at this broker is quite limited for me who likes crypto trading.

Patricia Johnson
Germany Dec 25 2022

I've been using admiral as my broker of choice for about 2 years, I didn't find any big problems with that broker. This free webinar which is available every week really helped me at the start of trying forex trading. This broker provides great speakers, on how to invest, and the learning process is very easy to understand. Anyway, the educational material is very good with lots of courses provided, really helpful, especially for beginners who are just trying trading.

Tameka Covey
Australia Dec 21 2022

I can't comprehend how disappointed I am with Admirals customer service. I deposited my funds around a week ago and it still hasn't arrived in my accounts. Now, I actually have been trading with this broker for quite some time. This is actually the first time something like this happened. I don't think they scammed me, but what get's me upset is how the team treated my problem like it was nothing. I'm sure this is a technical problems but they can at least gives me a heads up or an update about my situations without me asking them first.

Reina Sheppard
Switzerland Dec 6 2022

I don't understand the point of Admirals copying trading platforms and hiding the provider's strategy. I would want to know what kind of strategy they are using so I know that I am not being scammed. I don't mind the fee although sometimes I think it's rather expensive. But I would need more transparency.

Ambrose Paradis

A smooth and sleek experience is the only way I can describe my experience with this broker. My order is smoothly executed, and the fill rate is amazing. I haven't felt any major during my time trading with this company. However, I have only been with them for three months, I might change my mind in the future. Let's see.
