AvaTrade is a controlled forex broker whose commitment lies in giving its customers customized trading solutions whether one is new in the business or not. Initially, AvaTrade was AvaFX and began in 2006. AvaTrade is an online broker of both Forex and CFDs, with its headquarters in Dublin, Ireland. The company’s area of specialty is trading services. It provides its services to Bitcoin, equities, bonds, Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) and market indices. Since 2006, AvaTrade has grown and increased their operations to a global scale of about 200000 accounts.


Apart from Dublin, AvaTrade maintains other offices in other countries. It has grown to be a multinational company expanding into Milan, Nigeria, Shangai, South Africa, Paris, Sydney, Tokyo, and Mongolia. The broker closes over 2 million transactions on a monthly basis with a total value of about $60billion.
