IronTrade Review

Introduction

Introduction

Based in Kingstown on the Caribbean island of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, IronTrade opened up its website for binary options trading less than a year ago, in 2019. Since then, it has concentrated its efforts on building its client base and attracting new business with a substantial welcome bonus offer.

IronTrade offers it's trading clients two account options, Standard or VIP and options on over 70 assets which cover currency pairs, stocks, indices and commodities. It also has facilities for clients to continue trading over the weekend period when the binary options markets are closed, by using an OTC agent.

IronTrade boasts a bespoke trading platform and equally functional apps suited to both Android and iOS mobile devices, as well as opportunities to enter tournament events, funded with its unique currency T¢ (tournament coins). Although IronTrade has not been in the binary options market long enough to judge against longer-standing brokers, it does seem to be making an impact with traders.

In this review, you will learn:

  • Some useful facts about IronTrade
  • The bonus options available from them

Account Types

8.0
Account Types

There are three types of account available from IronTrade.

Demo Account

This account is strictly for ‘practice’ purposes only. It is a useful tool for beginners to get the feel of the ‘real’ trading platform that IronTrade uses but is unsuited for any analytical purposes because it does not reflect real-time trading. For information only, it also consistently shows a payout percentage of 90%, which is only applicable to an account with VIP status.

Standard Account

A Standard account is the first step for traders ready to take their investments to the real world. Although the recommended deposit sum is $100, the minimum deposit required is just $10. As IronTrade’s website is still undergoing improvement, there is currently no published figures concerning maximum open trades, or about maximum investment amounts permitted for this account type. However, the maximum payout is 80% after deduction of the broker’s share and fees for the trade.

VIP Account

Opening a VIP account requires a minimum deposit amount of $900. As already explained under the Standard account information, the website does not currently publicise detailed figures for maximum open trades or capping. We are aware that the payout for VIP accounts increases to a quoted 90%. IronTrade also claims that VIP clients will receive extra bonuses and faster withdrawal times, but again, no specific details are currently available.

Trade Types And Payouts

9.4
Trade Types And Payouts

There are around 70 trade types offered by IronTrade, which include indices, commodities, stocks and multiple currency pairs. Occasionally the broker also provides cryptocurrency trades, but these are not always available. The majority of trades on offer range from 60-second ‘Speed’ trades through to two hours, but there are longer or alternative options available on request.

Payouts are 80% across the board for a Standard account, rising to 90% for VIP account trades. You should also take note of the fact that the Demo account interface reflects the higher rate of payout (90%) and therefore does not provide an accurate payout comparison to a Standard account.

IronTrade runs regular ‘Trading Tournaments’, some of which are open to all, while others are by invitation only.

Bonuses And Promotions

10.0
Bonuses And Promotions

IronTrade has a very generous ‘Welcome Bonus’ in place which equates to approximately 27% of the initial funds deposited. An example on the website states that a deposit of $5000 would benefit from a bonus of $1350. Full details of exactly how to calculate the exact amount is available from the website T&Cs.

Clients may also receive randomly awarded ‘Promo Codes’ offering additional bonuses. The majority of these only appear to require an additional deposit to activate them, have a short lifespan and require redemption, using the numerical code supplied, as soon as possible after receipt.

There is currently a 100% referral bonus opportunity, which is payable after the referred party opens an account with a minimum of $30 and places a verified trade. The usual option is a 50% bonus, meaning a $15 reward for each referral.

One important point to note is that all bonuses given by IronTrade are subject to a requirement of trading x35 the bonus amount before it is converted to ‘real’ funds and becomes available for withdrawal.

Mobile Trading

9.4
Mobile Trading

IronTrade uses a propriety platform for binary options trading on its main website. For mobile users, there are downloadable apps which give full functionality, subject to both the mobile device and the browser being completely up-to-date.

The Android-based app is also available on Google PlayStore and located using the search ‘Iron Trade’. iOS users can download the relevant app from the Apple iTunes Store, where it goes under the name ‘Iron Terminal’. Both apps are developed and supplied by IronTrade’s affiliate company, Triafor Solutions Limited.

Deposits And Withdrawals

9.0
Deposits And Withdrawals

Instant deposits can be made to an Iron Trade free of charge using tried and trusted methods like Credit Card, BACS, Skrill and Neteller, subject to successful verification of personal ID and account ownership verification.

Additional verification using photo ID is often requested before withdrawals are made available, which may add more time to the transaction. Withdrawal funding can only be applied using the same source as the deposit and can take from 1 to 15 working days (method dependent) to complete.

Special Features

9.0
Special Features

IronTrade runs regular ‘Trading Tournaments’, some of which are open to all, while others are by invitation only. The majority of these tournaments have the benefit of free entry, but the ones with the highest prizes do attract an entry fee, a percentage of which adds to the total prize pot.

Once a successful tournament registration is acknowledged, the relevant interface becomes visible and clients use it alongside their ‘real’ investments to trade in their usual way. The difference is that tournament trades show values as ‘Tournament Coins’, viewed as T¢ on the trading platform. The coins being by the broker for this purpose. The most prolific trader at the end of the contest wins the ‘pot’.

IronTrade offers the ability to trade over the weekend on an OTC basis (Over The Counter), which means entering into a trade without the benefit of the same analytics functionality available on weekdays. OTC is a form of trading that is potentially most suited to professionals, as it requires experience to spot a trend and make a successful trading decision at these times when volatility is at its highest.

Customer Support

Under its company information pages, IronTrade suggests that “professional technical support” is available via e-mail, phone or online chat. Regrettably, the broker has yet to make any of the specific contact details evident on the website, although there is a web form facility within the FAQ section.

IronTrade appears to be doing its best for its customers in terms of support but has yet to complete its (relatively new) website and to add this type of information clearly or concisely.

Here are the contact details for IronTrade:

  • Email - [email protected]
  • Phone - +35 722 000 443
  • Address - Rosco Solutions LTD, Suite 305, Griffith Corporate Centre, Beachmont, P.O. Box 1510, Kingstown, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

Conclusion

9.1
Conclusion

IronTrade only launched its binary options operation in 2019, so it is difficult to draw a conclusion as to its conduct or its future at this stage. It has attracted many new clients over the last few months, perhaps primarily because of the generous welcome bonus currently on offer.

Presumably, because the broker and its website are new, it can be a little tricky to locate specific information, which can be a bit frustrating, but we are sure that IronTrade will address website navigation at some stage. In fairness, these issues do not extend to the trading interface, where everything is made clear from the point of download.

It is a broker to keep on the radar and observe as it continues to grow, but at the time of writing, it has not been in the binary options market for long enough to make an informed recommendation.

If you are an experienced binaries trader, it may be worth taking advantage of the welcome bonus option, but as a beginner, we would suggest that you proceed with caution.
