A huge range of stocks are available to trade. There are more than 12,000 in total with the R StockTrader account. More than 8,000 of these are CFDs though there are also more than 3,500 to trade as real assets. Again these are not available on ProCent accounts.
The broker offers access to more than 1,000 ETFs. ETF Pro and ETF account types are only available for professional traders, but retail traders can access ETF CFDs. These are also not available on ProCent accounts.
Execution, leverage and position sizing
These are all of the trading features you will have available for you at the broker, and more details on each.
RoboMarkets is a market maker broker that also offers ECN accounts. They provide market execution across the board, and you can expect some very fast execution speeds from 0.1 seconds.
In Europe, according to ESMA regulation, the maximum leverage available is 30:1 on forex. This maximum is 20:1 on major indices, minor forex, and gold. It is further reduced to 10:1 on commodities and minor indices. A maximum leverage of 5:1 is available on stocks.
The minimum lot size you can trade at this broker is 0.01 standard lots.
There is a good range of risk management tools available to help you manage your positions when trading with the broker. These are mostly available through your trading platform and include stop losses, take profits, limit orders, and trailing stops.
RoboMarkets also provides margin calls to help those trading on leverage manage their account equity levels.
When it comes to trading hours, the forex market is open on a 24/5 basis. Commodities can typically be traded on a 23/5 timescale with the hour between midnight and 1 am closed daily.
The trading hours for stocks, indices, and others will depend on the local hours with the specific market or exchange you are trading.
Forbidden trading techniques
RoboMarkets are good not only at accepting many trading techniques including the use of EAs, hedging, and scalping, but they also offer the use of their own proprietary VPS around the clock.
Platforms & Mobile
The trading platforms and what they have to offer are always a key component when dealing with any broker. Here is exactly what to expect with RoboMarkets.
Charting and Trading tools
An abundance of charting tools and indicators are offered by the broker through their trading platforms. Combining the RoboMarkets terminals (mobile and web) and R StocksTrader with MT4 and MT5 that the broker offers, you come up with more than 50 indicators and over 30 drawing and charting tools.
Also included in what is generally a highly customizable trading experience is the ability to set and monitor price alerts as well as one-click trading.
MetaTrader 4 is one of the best-known and most respected trading platforms in the industry along with MT5 which is also available. One of the things to set it apart is the huge availability of charting tools and indicators.
You will have more than 50 available for technical analysis alongside the use of their EAs feature and 3 types of orders to choose from.
If this were not already highly customizable enough, you can also access MetaTrader market through the terminal to purchase more indicators and strategies to implement through the EAs feature from the wider trading community. MT4 with RoboMarkets is available on desktop, web, and mobile.
Again MT5 is very much in the same line and standard as MT4 with the experience on offer. Here you will find even more order types, with 6 different pending order types and 4 execution types to choose from.
You will still also have access to the EAs feature and the same MetaTrader market which has more than 1500 EAs available to import.
Through the broker, you will be able to utilize their 24/7 VPS server and the platform itself is available on desktop, web, and mobile.
The R StockTrader is available as a web-based platform and is extremely user-friendly while still providing access to advanced charting features and watchlists to stay on top of your assets. You will also be able to trade directly from the chart with your orders being auto-synched.
The trading platform offers access to more than 12,000 stocks, indices, ETFs, and CFDs, all of which you can trade. You will also have the ability to use a free automated strategy builder.
You can use this to create your own algorithms and strategies much in a similar fashion to the MT4 and MT5 EAs feature.
The RoboMarkets terminals offer both a web trader (R WebTrader) and a mobile app (R MobileTrader). Through these intuitive platforms, you will have access to more than a dozen technical indicators and 9 additional tools for charting analysis.
The terminals provide very swift access with the ability to deposit funds to your account without having to log in to the member’s area. R WebTrader also supports all types of MT4 accounts and is ideal for never missing a beat while on the move.
