Overall, both apps provide a good mobile experience across the board for all levels of trading experience.

Why we Like to Trade with AvaTrade

The webtrade platform is very user-friendly and is especially useful for beginner traders, along with the negative balance protection it's a real value-add, especially for inexperienced traders that need that extra safety and protection. 

Plus, the fixed fees and spreads on forex pairs are extremely low and competitive and scalping strategies can be used.

The educational content is excellent, with a huge number of tutorials aimed for all levels that really help you put together trading strategies, this along with the integration of Trading Central's signals is a perfect combo for helping pick great trades. 

We like the fact that AvaTrade is regulated worldwide, giving you peace of mind that they are a trustworthy broker.
