A minor complaint would be that trading can involve having to open a lot of different windows rather than everything being integrated. This can cause a bit of frustration but is by no means a major issue. This opens a much simpler window and allows you to place your orders quickly and easily without any of the bells and whistles. Spectral Analysis gives you a visual overview of your planned strategies while straegySEEK helps you pick strategies based on criteria you define yourself. This is especially useful for traders that struggle with discipline or applying a solid strategy.
This tool walks you through six steps to help you complete the full process from research, testing, executing orders, and exiting positions. Beginners and even intermediate traders could benefit enormously from this. It also has a paper trade feature which allows you use the trading platform to make virtual trades and keep track of your results. TradeMonster offers most of the research and analysis capabilities you need but there have been criticisms that they aren't as in depth as they could be.
The charting tools are certainly a little weaker than many of its competitors and the range of technical studies available is somewhat lacking. For additional research you can sign up to researchLAB.
It's free to use but it's separate from the main platform which is not ideal. There are also paid subscription services for more comprehensive technical indicators and more thorough research. Overall the research and analysis that is available at TradeMonster is certainly sufficient, but it's fair to say it isn't of the same high standard as the trading platform itself. Customer support isn't the strongest point of TradeMonster. They do offer both telephone and email support, but there have been reports of poor responses.
This isn't something we have experienced ourselves though, and the broker has made a concerted effort to improve this area. Perhaps the biggest disappointments are that customer service is not available 24 hours a day and that there is no dedicated technical support. TradeMonster unquestionably gets a lot more right that it gets wrong.
The research and analysis tools, along with the quality of the customer support, could be improved for sure, but they are far from inadequate. The fact that the trading platform is of such a high standard means that these issues are really quite minor.
The fee structure isn't ideal for small volume traders, but it doesn't make trading excessively expensive either. It certainly provides good value for high volume traders. Taking everything into account, this broker has something to offer everyone from beginners starting out small to experienced traders who trade very actively.
