Registration process

After clicking on the CTA button, I found on the main page, A form came up for me to fill in. It took me about a minute or two. In a minute after registering, I got three welcome emails. The first email was an activation one.

The second email has login details and the third email is about an e-book they sent. This should have been highlighted, I think. The e-book is for free and in pdf format. It’s a short guide to trading.

After verifying myself I got logged in. Then I had to choose between opening a demo account and a live account. After I chose what account I wanted I had to choose again which account I wanted to open. That I found annoying.

The main page showed me my balance and what type of account I had opened. I could also see my password, regulations risk warning and link to join their social networks. The main page also includes a “deposit” button and a “start trading” button. Under the “instruments” button I found the top traded graph.

As you can see on the left side you click to choose between Forex, Commodities, Indices and Shares.

After browsing through I decided to start trading. You need the login details from the second email. Click the “demo” button otherwise you can`t log in. I had to fill in my name and surname, again and then I had to wait for my registration to go through. After a few minutes was finally in the web trader with a new login number and password. On the right, you see a graph of the selected instrument.

On the left, there are the individual instruments with their current rates. Registering for the account was easy, although I found it annoying how many times, I had to choose which account I want and type in my name several times and then at the end I got a different password and log in anyway. Other than that, I had no problems whatsoever.

Social networks

According to their website, they are active on Facebook, Instagram and Linked-in. Facebook has around 1000 followers, and the last post is only a week old. It looks like they post weekly. Instagram is pretty much the same as Facebook.

Capital Panda fees

The fees charged by Capital Panda are quite high and that I have found out on other reviews. I couldn`t find a list of fees on their website. They charge management fee a maintenance fee of 89 Euro if the Trading Account is inactive. Their spreads are higher, so the minimum spread for EUR / USD is 3 pips.

Capital Panda website

CapitalPanda’s website is available in eight languages. Aside from obvious English version, you can also use the translations to Czech, Slovak, Hungarian, Greek, Italian, Spanish and Croatian. Thanks to that, even traders with no English skills can trade with this broker.

The design is simple, straightforward and the colours they use are calming. They are well laid out and functional. Navigating around the web is simple and intuitive. They should highlight the demo account more and even the e-book they sent me. In the top panel of the main page you can choose between:

  • Trading
  • Types of accounts
  • About us
  • Contacts

Every option opens up into a list, where you specify your needs. The Education section contains only educational videos.

Trading platforms

Capital Panda uses the enhanced MetaTrader 5. This platform can be used on your mobile phone, web or tablet. I had to use the web trader because I have a Macbook and can`t use an application for it.

Capital Panda: Advantages and disadvantages

The advantages of this broker are a demo account, where you can test your skills, learn about the MT5 platform and use a virtual $100 000. Also, a wide variety of instruments is a plus for this broker. They are registered and licensed.

Their website and contacts are in 4 different languages and the platform MT5 is very good. They are transparent. You can find all information about the regulations, risks and licenses. What I found disappointing was the lack of educational videos and webinars, no economic calendar and no 24/7 chatbot, that could help. Fees are quite high too.

The Cons:

  • High fees
  • No chatbot
  • The minimum deposit is high

The Pros:

  • Demo account
  • Wide variety of instruments
  • Registered and licensed
  • Money in separate accounts

Ranking: 4 hvězdy
