Windsor Brokers offers traders a choice of three different platforms. The MetaTrader 4 platform is by far the more popular choice among experienced traders. The Windsor MT4 Desktop is designed for the active trader seeking comprehensive news and analytics, real-time charts and live quotes. It comes complete with a host of management tools, expert advisors and indicators.
The Windsor MT4 Multi-Terminal platform is designed for money managers or traders holding several online trading accounts who wish to have full control with a single click and from a single platform. It offers multiple trading account management, multiple order types, accounts history report center, news feed & alerts and more.
Windsor broker’s recently introduced GWAZY web trading platform is easy to use and is a powerful web-based platform that gives traders real-time data and immediate execution. Users may log in through their favorite web browser and have access to market trends and prices and can place a trade or manage open investments while keeping track on their account status.
With the GWAZY web trading platform traders can invest in Forex, metals, CFD’s, indices and commodities.
While some Forex brokers offer a few account options, there’s no question that Windsor Brokers makes an effort to respond to the needs of every trader. There are 10 different accounts to choose from including a demo account. Each account is clearly outlined and defined as to the minimum deposit required, minimum investment, leverage allowed, what is permitted (such as hedging), margin requirements and which platform can be used.
For example, the new GWAZY Account is a unique trading methodology that provides traders, especially beginners and average traders with all the benefits of margin trading but without the complications.
The website at Windsor Brokers is a pleasure to navigate as all the information is organized and available at the click of a tab. There are more features offered than any other Forex broker on the market. Included in this is an economic calendar, daily market reports, webinars, educational videos and seminars. There are also several types of calculators such as a pip calculator, pivot point calculator, Fibonacci calculator and more.
Windsor’s social trading network, Sawa, is their latest service tool made available to their clients. Sawa combines financial trading with the best features of social networking and uses them to connect traders from all over the world in a fast and easy to use application.
Windsor Brokers encourages traders to take advantage of their live chat feature for most general inquiries, and during our review we had the opportunity to use this service more than once. We were extremely satisfied with the level of service and the knowledge that each staff member exhibited. Customer service is also available via email callback.
All in all, I found that despite the myriad of choices provided by Windsor Brokers, it is one of the simplest sites to use.
