is olymp trade an ECN or market maker?

scam   31 May, 2020  

Hello there! Olymp Trade is not a liquidity provider. Our company uses quotes from the largest ECN sites, such as Currenex, Hotspot, Bloomberg Tradebook FX, Fastmatch, Gain GTX, FXAll, etc., and translates the weighted average value to the platform. Best regards, Olymp Trade team.

If you have decided to be a trader, then prepare yourself for what you simply will not have, because you will face a lot of certain difficulties, which you will have to work with yourself. In this case, a broker will not be able to help you directly, even if you have training videos, etc. Because you have to study it yourself and take it into account, learn to use it in practice. The responsibility first of all should lie on you, only in this case you will be able to start a business and make a profit that suits you.

I traded with this platform, but just when I am winning at the very last second the price turn reverse abruptly. and I am a loser. In this way, I already loss handsome bucks. I am sceptical that there was some interference from the other side to siphon-off my money. I was very sure to win in those trades, but it used to reverse. Can somebody set against my trading to let me loss?

Lalmuanthanga   30 May, 2020  

Hi, dear! The chart on the real account and demo is the same. All quotes are broadcast to the platform equally. Quotes are the direct stream of data which we can not influence. Our suggestion is that you trade for 1-5 minutes. In such a short time period the price can not change significantly. We advise you to make trades from 15 minutes and more to make your forecasts more accurate. Best regards, Olymp Trade team.

Olymp Trade   1 June, 2020

The platform of olymp trade is user friendly, but I am skeptical when I am using fixed time trading. When I put a trade, just when it is coming to my advantage to get the profit, it immediate reverse and I loss money. This happen many times. I feel that it had been manipulated from the other end. I might be wrong, but this cause me huge bucks.

Olymp seems to be a nice broker. However, my major is that I started noticing a time delay when placing trades on binary options. You execute a trade and it keeps loading for about 6 secs before the trade is opened, which is very risky for fixed time trade. I chatted their customer care and they said its normal. This wasn't the case before.

Johnny   27 May, 2020  

Hi, Johnny! Thank you so much for being with us! Have a successful trading! Best regards, Olymp Trade team.

Olymp Trade   28 May, 2020

What can I say for myself about this company? It's simple - I've been trading here for about 3 years and I don't want to change anything. And why, if I have everything set up here, no changes in the service (which is done here periodically) do not interfere with me and do not harm. It seems to me that this stability, which is so lacking in many other companies.

Adrien   26 May, 2020

I have trade on this broker a month ago. First. I deposit 50$ on my account. And i trade until i got 100$. But when i want to withdraw it. The System says - I have trading with robot, and they suspended my account and all of my fund. So don't invest on broker that you can't trust in it.

Robin freiss   21 May, 2020

I have been trading with Olymptrade for a while now and to be honest it's very good and convenient ,no issues with withdrawing infact it's the fastest compared to other brokers i previously dealt with.for some brokers it's easy to deposit but very hectic when it comes to withdrawing your hard earned money .Olymp is the best for me so far and i just hope they remain the same or change positively in the near future.
