Get a Window into the Markets with Trading Central and AvaTrade

In 2020 we forged a collaboration with Trading Central, whereby we began to offer their award-winning products like market insights and intelligence, directly to our clients. We have made these products available through our proprietary interfaces (WebTrader and AvaTradeGO) and via notifications (SMS/email/push).

The backbone to maintaining long-lasting relationships with our traders ultimately comes down to the success that they see. Experience shows that for a trader to increase their trading edge, they need a few things. One is practice, another is education and learning resources, and the third is insight, or a window into the markets if you will. This is where our Trading Central offering comes in.

  • 68% of investors confirm that they would like to receive more technical trading strategies and independent recommendations.
