We start our Admiral Markets (Admirals) review with an outline of this broker. Admirals is a great choice for traders looking for a reputable CFD broker, for its fund’s safety policies, and also for the strong regulations in place. Also, positively, Admirals cost of trading, in line with its competitors, can be an attractive factor to several traders.

But the highlight is the Admirals Invest.MT5 account, and we mean the 1:1 stock trading package. This account can represent a real alternative for retail stock traders looking to use the advanced features of the MetaTrader 5 platform in terms of charts and indicators, in comparison to other stock brokers, together with very competitive pricing.

On the downside, we found a couple of points that Admirals could review to improve the overall trading experience: expand the offering of trading platforms - currently limited to both MetaTrader platforms - and possibly revise the withdrawals fees policy, as several of its competitors offer free, unlimited withdrawals.

What are Admirals rebates?

Admirals rebates are a portion of the transaction cost that is paid back to the client on each trade, resulting in a lower spread and improved win ratio. For example, if your rebate is 1 pip and the spread is 3 pips, then your net spread is only 2 pips.

Many traders initially believe there must be higher costs elsewhere to compensate, however they soon find there is no catch and Forex rebates truly reduce the costs of the transaction and improve their bottom line.

How do Admirals rebates work?

When you link a new or existing forex trading account to us the broker pays us part of their spread or commission profit for every trade you make as compensation for referring a customer to them. We then share the majority of our revenue with you, paying you a cash rebate for each trade you make as thank you for signing up with us.

Unlike some of our competitors your spreads will never increase as a result of using our service! The only difference is: as our client you earn extra cash per trade, making trading through us more profitable than opening direct with the broker. Founded in 2007, we are the original and leading provider of forex rebates. We pay rebates to over 100,000 accounts and traders love our helpful 24 hour live chat, telephone and email support.

Are Admirals rebates a scam; do my spreads increase?

Admirals rebates paid by legitimate rebate providers are not a scam, however scams do exist. The most common scam is a rebate provider that marks up the spread or commission in order to pay a higher rebate than competitors. Many brokers do allow a referring party, or rebate provider, to markup costs to traders they refer. Obviously this defeats the purpose of the service provided by the rebate provider and thus jeopardizes the viability of the rebate provider’s reputation and business, so a reliable provider wouldn’t consider this. Besides this, certain rebate providers may not pay on time, or not at all. This is why it’s important to choose a reliable provider.

When working with a trustworthy rebate provider, there is no ‘catch’. It is more beneficial to a trader’s financial position to work with a rebate provider than solely with the forex broker.

Are there any other benefits to signing up for Admirals rebates?

It depends on the rebate provider. Due to our unique relationship with many brokers, we have often mediated between brokers and clients in order to help successfully resolve client issues, including clients who are having withdrawal issues. Brokers are often very fast to respond to us, since we typically have many clients with them. Our knowledgeable support team is available 24 hours per day in 8 native languages & 23 total languages for any questions. We also offer trading tools, calculators, reviews and a robust forex education section.

How are forex rebates paid?

Because we deal with so many traders in so many different countries and serve 23 languages we have to cover a wide array of options. Here’s what we offer:

Forex rebate options vary per broker:

Monthly cash back Payments are credited and sent automatically by the 12 of the month following the month rebates are earned in.
Spread or commission reduction The trader actually receives reduced commissions and/or spreads. This is an exciting option offered by some of our top brokers.
Paid direct to brokerage account Cashback is credited directly to the trader’s brokerage account, typically between 1-7 days after the trade is closed. This is another exciting options offered by some of our top brokers.

In the case of the ‘Monthly cash back’ rebate option, monthly payments can be paid via bank wire, Paypal, Skrill, Sticpay, China Unionpay, and Neteller. Some payment methods such as bank wire carries fees and often traders set a custom minimum payment amount in order to accumulate rebates and withdraw their rebates less often than monthly.

Admirals offers three types of trading accounts, Trade, offered with the .MT4 and .MT5 packages, Zero (ECN type), also offered with the .MT4 and .MT5 packages, and Invest.MT5. The Trade accounts are suited for traders that wish to trade only with the bid and ask prices, without any added commissions.

The Zero accounts are recommended for investors that are looking for a more competitive pricing, especially for the forex pairs with a tighter spread, but paying a trading commission.

The Invest.MT5 account is indented exclusively for investors wishing to trade stocks, more than 4,350 global stocks and over 200 ETFs. Trades can also apply for a leveraged CFD stock trading account (over 3,350 stocks and over 300 ETFs) with Trade.MT4 and Trade.MT5, but of course, our recommendation is the 1:1 leveraged Invest.MT5, that also pays dividends proportional to the stock investment.

Unfortunately, Admirals does not offer swap-free accounts for traders of Islamic belief, except for the Trade.MT5 account.

Admirals can also represent an alternative for professional money managers, or small hedge fund managers, with their asset management feature, in cooperation with Finexware. Investors looking for a PAMM account alternative, can visit the Admirals Asset Management webpage for more information.

Regarding leverage, Admirals maximum ratio is 30:1 for accounts opened with the Australian and the European entities for retail clients. Traders classified as "Professional" can apply for higher leverage ratios, up to 500:1.

Currently, Admirals' trading accounts are available in 10 deposit currencies: EUR, GBP, USD, CHF, BGN, CZK, HRK, HUF, PLN and RON.

Admirals Demo account

With an Admirals demo account traders can compare the broker to its peers, for its product offering and trading conditions. An Admirals demo account is also useful for forex beginners, to learn and practise their trading skills, without taking any risks with real money.

To access the Admirals demo account, traders need to complete a simple registration form, with name/surname, email and phone number. However, traders do not need to upload verification document(s) to Admirals until they are ready to trade live.

Admirals demo accounts are available for 30 days (traders registering for a live trading account can enjoy non-expiry demos), with the MT4 and MT5 trading platforms. Investors can open a demo account with any of the account types, the Trade.MT4 and Trade.MT5, the Zero.Mt4 and Zero.MT5 and the Invest.MT5 - ideal for stock trading.

Compared to a live trading account, an Admirals demo account simulates the real market conditions offered by the broker, and there is no real difference between the trading conditions and price feeds for both live and demo accounts - except for slippage, since it is a simulated market.

Admirals demo account gives traders the full Admirals experience, allowing investors to test the broker on several financial instruments – forex, indices, stocks, commodities, ETFs, bonds and cryptocurrencies - without risking any real money.

An Admirals demo account is 100% risk-free, the money on the demo account is virtual – and so are the winnings and losses – but allow access to the markets where traders can practice, and experiment with different trading strategies, in a safe environment.

Spreads and trading commissions

Admirals' trading costs are some of the most competitive when compared with other players in this industry. The starting spread for the most popular cross, the EUR/USD pair, for the entry-level accounts, the Trade.MT4 and Trade.MT5 trading accounts, is 0.8 pip - during major economic news release and market opening times spreads can increase - all commission free.

Admirals also offers better trading conditions with their Zero accounts (Zero.MT4 and Zero.MT5), with lower spreads and a competitive commission. Taking the EUR/USD cross again as our example, Admirals proposes a starting low spread of 0.1 pip, with a trading commission for 1 standard lot - 100,000 currency units - of 6 USD (3 USD per side/per lot). We consider this commission to be average when compared with other top brokers.

If stock trading is your thing, then we suggest the Admirals Invest.MT5 account. With this account, the investors have access to 15 of the largest stock exchanges at no cost. Traders can open an Invest.MT5 account with as little as €1 and no monthly maintenance fees are charged. Trading fees start at $0.02 per share with minimum transaction fees of $1 in US stocks.

And the best is the dividend pay-outs! With the Invest.MT5 account investors can create a stream of potential passive income with a portfolio of dividend-paying stocks. Every time a company pays dividends, traders will receive a dividend pay-out proportional to their investment.

Rollover rates

Admirals' swap rates as of 09-08-2021, and for the EUR/USD, stand at -6.75 for holding overnight a long position of 1 lot and at -0.70 for holding overnight a short position of 1 lot. We consider Admirals' rollover rates to be slightly higher when compared with the rollover rates offered by other top brokers.

Admirals Deposits / Withdrawals

Deposit fees: Trading accounts can be opened in 10 different currencies and maintained via 10 different funding methods. Together with the traditional deposits via debit/credit cards and bank wires, Admirals also accepts deposits with the most popular e-wallets, such as PayPal, Klarna and Skrill (depending on jurisdiction), and deposited funds are available almost instantly.

Admirals does not charge any fees for deposits, except for Skrill (0,9%, min. 1 EUR/USD) and Neteller (0.9%, min. 1 EUR/GBP).

In fact, Admiral Markets demo account is available for 30 days, but can be non-expiring if traders decide to register a live account. The available trading platforms for the demo account are the MetaTrader 4, MetaTrader 5 and the MetaTrader Supreme Edition.

To create an Admiral Markets demo account, open the broker's website, and navigate to the "Start Trading" tab. Then select "Demo Account". On the following page, "Demo Trading Account", there's a simple form on the right side requesting some basic information. After completing the form - takes only a couple of minutes - and clicking the blue circle with the white arrow, you should receive an email requesting the activation of your Admiral Markets new demo account, connected to the Admirals Trader's Room.

Once the email verification process is finished, you will be able to login to the Admiral Markets Trader's Room. On the left side menu, scroll down to "Trading Platforms". Click on it and the available platforms will show up. As mentioned before, trading with Admirals is available via MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5. Depending on your trading strategy, select the required platform and download it to your machine (available for PC and Mac).

Go back to the main screen, or the homepage of the Trader's Room, and scroll down to "Demo Accounts". Click the "OPEN NEW DEMO ACCOUNT" button. Two options are presented for your new demo account: Trading and Investing. The Trading option is ideal for traders looking to buy and sell currency pairs, cryptocurrencies, stocks, indices, commodities, and ETFs via CFD with leverage. The Investing option is recommended for traders looking to buy and holding stocks and funds, typically for an extended period of time.

For this example of Admiral Markets demo account we have selected the Investing option and opened an Invest.MT5 demo account (leverage 1:1) with the broker to keep an eye on several stocks and to test the Admiral Markets MT5 Supreme Edition.

What is the Admirals MT5 Supreme Edition?

Admiral Markets is one of the few CFD brokers with the MT5 Supreme Edition available. In fact, the platform is available not only for clients, but also as a demo version. The MT5 Supreme Edition can be downloaded from the Admirals Trader's Room webpage as a zip. After downloading, unpack the zip folder and run the executable file to install it on your machine.

After installation of the MT5 Supreme Edition, open the platform and click "File" on the top menu. Scroll down to "Login to Trade Account", click it and login with the account details created on your Trader's Room. If you don't have a live account, or even a demo account, you will not be able to run the platform. So, if you want to try it out follow the steps above to create an Admiral Markets demo account.

The Admiral Markets MT5 Supreme Edition is different from the "normal version" because it comes packed with 20 custom indicators from Admirals and 11 trading tools as EAs, also from Admirals. Please note the 11 EAs of the MT5 Supreme Edition will not auto-trade, they are simply trading tools coded as Expert Advisors.

Of all the custom indicators of the MT5 Supreme Edition, a special note to the Admiral Currency Strength, Admiral Gravity and Admiral Symbol Info. These 3 custom indicators combined can be very useful to have a general overview of the market, and the Admiral Symbol Info custom indicator also displays the symbol trend calculated on 5 popular indicators, from EMA14 to CCI14.

On the Expert Advisors section of the MT5 Supreme Edition, traders can find another powerful tool, the Admiral Sentiment Trader, that displays the percentage of traders currently Long/Short on a currency pair. The Admiral Sentiment Trader covers only currencies, from AUD/CAD to XAU/USD.

Overall, the MT5 Supreme Edition is a more complete trading platform, and it's great that Admiral Markets have it available for clients, but also for traders looking to test its functionalities with a risk-free demo account.

We conclude our Admiral Markets review with the final considerations regarding this broker. Admiral Markets stands out for the excellent range of instruments offered to invest, and the flexibility of its trading accounts – ideal for novice traders and investors looking for an alternative broker for equities trading. Admiral Markets propose an ECN trading environment, with competitive transaction costs, and traders are allowed to hedge, scalp, swing or position trade, with no restrictions.

The other great feature of the Admiral Markets broker is the offering of the Invest.MT5 trading account with a 1:1 leverage. With a 1:1 leverage, investors trading shares can rest assured that margin calls, or the extreme event of burning their accounts, are minimised.

Of course, the buying power of a leveraged account allows for bigger positions, but the 1:1 leverage is a small price to pay for keeping the account equity safe, and staying on the market for longer. The real risk when trading equities will be the unlikely event of a business complete bankruptcy - unlikely to happen with companies such Amazon Inc or Google.

Admiral Markets excellent asset classes, competitive pricing, together with a low initial deposit of 100 USD or 100 EUR, position this broker on the top 10 brokers for popularity with traders opening a trading account in 2021.
