Tradeview client funds are held in client segregated accounts.

Tradeview holds the client’s money separately to company funds and does not use these funds for any operational expenses or purposes.

Negative Balance Protection

For accounts opened with Tradeview Ltd, there is a default Negative Balance Protection mechanism in place, for the sake of no negative balance.

This measure is in place to protect Tradeview's customers from the risk that trading and leveraging exposes them to, particularly in volatile markets.

The popularity of Tradeview is a neutral 3 out of 5. Not one of the most popular brokers with traders, maybe due to the lack of regulation from a tier-1 level Financial Authority to boost it’s credibility and the feeling of funds safety.

Still, Tradeview should be considered a sound option if traders are looking for an alternative broker offering brokerage execution in an ECN and DMA environment. Tradeview is a broker with very low spreads on all Major currency pairs. Also, if traders are considering the cryptocurrencies CFDs, Tradeview offers, for the more popular coins, some of the lowest spreads in the market, making them one of the most competitive brokers we’ve found.

  • Trading accounts - The Tradeview Innovative Liquidity Connector® account is a popular choice with traders looking for reduced trading costs and considered the best value based on its competitive spreads and the $5.00 commission per lot traded. Extra points for Tradeview's policy of no fees on deposits or withdrawals.

  • Forex education - Tradeview loses a couple of popularity points for the broker's very limited range of Forex education materials. Traders can only find a couple of basic video tutorials related to MetaTrader 4 and the Rhino Report, Tradeview's website with a few market related articles.

Overall, on our Tradeview review, the broker scores a nearly neutral 3.7 out of 5 as this broker fails to attract more customers due to the lack of strong regulations in place with a more credible and global Financial Authority. However, Tradeview is quite popular with traders looking for a competitevly priced broker with low spreads for Forex and cryptocurrency trading. Also a popular choice with traders starting a PAMM account business as the broker offers their own EA for Metatrader (Tradeview_Receptor) allowing a PAMM manager to instantly copy its trades to its clients accounts.

Data supplied in partnership with CashBackForex - Forex Rebates places Tradeview on the top 15 brokers for popularity with traders opening an account in 2020.
