The guys on the live chat mentioned I was one of the first to test out the new Zentrader platform and broker service. Trading to me is something I do for fun, I don't mind taking large risks to make the big returns i.e. not a serious financial person.
First impressions, the platform is simple. No clutter of buttons, settings and switches. Similar to an Apple iPhone, it's designed to be intuitive and easy for beginners to get a hang of quickly. However, as someone who has used platforms of many different brokers - Zen Trader has focused on getting all the basics right.
Though the charting is fairly limited in history and I wish they had an iPhone app from the store. Payouts are some of the best I've seen (meaning they take small margin), price feed is good and quite a few instant deposit and withdrawal methods are offered. I could deposit from my Visa card and withdraw to my personal bank account (Indonesia) free of charge.
Was initially thinking just another broker, but the Zentrader team have got the formula just right. Overall a great experience.
