ALB holds a category 3 licence and is authorised to provide 2 investment services: dealing on own account and executing orders on behalf of other persons. It is aimed at retail clients, professional clients (including collective investment schemes) and eligible counterparties. As a leading online trading provider, ALB offers FX pairs and the leading Currencies, Equity Indices and Commodities CFDs. It also offers equity-based CFDs and maintains commissions at a very low and competitive fixed rate.
ALB has adopted the market execution model, which means that there are no written quotes in the traditional sense as the prices displayed on the trading platform are themselves quotes. Positions can also be partially closed allowing for a more flexible strategy.
The best way to trade safely is to choose an REGULATED Broker, since regulation requires the broker to protect a client's negative balance, so clients cannot lose more than they initially deposited.
ALB as a regulated broker provides this service and as a member of the ICS-Investor Compensation Scheme, allows clients to enjoy capital protection through a bailout fund in the event that the Company is no longer able to provide the services, as it is insolvent due to bankruptcy.
A further level of security!
All clients' funds deposited with ALB are completely separated from the Company's own funds and those of other clients. In addition, they are held in separate/second bank accounts.
ALB guarantees that funds belonging to clients cannot be used for other purposes. In addition, ALB has its interim and annual financial reports audited by Price Waterhouse Coopers, a leading global financial auditor.
As far as forex trading software is concerned, ALB offers the MetaTrader 4 trading platform, developed by a market leader in trading software.
The platform allows traders to use sophisticated trading strategies on desktop and mobile versions for Android and iOS devices. Its trading servers are located in Europe and are co-hosted by providers that also host over 200 different platforms, Tier-1 and ECN Banks.
Electronic trading strategies can only be efficiently implemented if the infrastructure is fast and reliable. Equinix, the hosting server provider is a neutral data center for the data carrier and is the leading global co-location data center provider for market shares. Equinix is a Nasdaq listed company (EQIX), listed on the S&P 500 index. The choice of a low-latency network offered by the Equinix ecosystem optimizes server downtime and co-location ensures less than a millisecond of communication, which in turn reduces the possibility of slippage.
