JBALPHA
About company:

JB Alpha is an Australian brokerage firm that also provides consulting services in addition to trading.

 

JB Alpha provides retail and institutional investors with access to global markets and a wide range of financial products.

 

Account management and several other services are provided through contractors such as AxiTrader, CommSec, FXCM, Pepperstone, SaxoBank and others.

 

Company. Fund security

JB Alpha is overseen by the Australian ASIC regulator (ABN 76 131 736 415). It is one of the most reputable regulatory agencies in the world. Customers can rest assured that their investments are kept in segregated accounts. This practice reduces the risk of illegal activity on the part of the broker.

 

True, ASIC does not have a scheme to compensate funds for customers. Therefore, in the event of a broker's bankruptcy, traders most likely will not be able to return the invested funds.

 

Trading conditions

JB Alpha offers its clients trading in various financial markets. Traders can choose from CFDs, currency pairs, indices, stocks, commodities, futures, options, etc. A non-standard offer from a broker - trading bonds of companies from Eastern and Central Europe. Clients can buy and sell shares of companies from Romania, Lithuania, Latvia and many others.

 

Despite this variety, the broker does not offer cryptocurrency CFDs.

 

You can open an individual, joint, corporate, trust account.

 

Minimum initial deposit

There is no information on the website about the types of accounts that the broker offers, as well as the minimum deposit. Lack of information on trading conditions, in our opinion, always negatively affects the demand among traders.

 

Spreads and commissions

Through the demo account, we got access to the trading platform. The spread on EUR / USD on the demo version was 0.3 pips. Compared to the industry average of 1.5 pips, this is a very good deal. However, the trader must still account for a $ 50 commission for every ten lots. So, the spread with all trading costs will be 0.8 pips. This is definitely a plus for the broker.

 

Leverage

The amount of leverage depends on the financial instrument, for example, for the EUR / USD pair, the leverage is 1:40. This is significantly lower than what many other brokers offer (1: 500). However, there is now a trend towards getting rid of high leverage offers. Since this entails great losses. If we take into account the fact that the ASIC regulator does not insure investors' money, it becomes quite logical why the broker offers a small amount of leverage.

 

Trading platforms

JB Alpha provides its clients with the Saxotradergo and MT4 / 5 trading platform. Developments from the software company MetaQuotes - MetaTrader 4/5 - are easy to understand, and also have analytical potential: clear charts, trading history, you can add your own indicators.

 

Education

The broker does not publish analytical and news materials, but you can use educational articles. This is especially useful for beginners who are just learning Forex.

 

Support service

The main office is located in Melbourne. The support team works by phone, email, chat and using the feedback form.

 

Pros:

 

regulated broker; selection of trading platforms.

 

Minuses:

 

leverage size; lack of information on trading conditions.

 

 

JBALPHA is a brokerage company whose task is to provide intermediary services to traders. Brokers provide access to currency trading in the first place. Many of them also provide an opportunity to transact with company stocks, bonds, commodities, precious metals, indices, cryptocurrencies and other assets. A private person can make transactions with all these instruments only on the trading platform, which the broker provides access to.

In addition, thanks to the brokerage company, an individual can operate on the market with amounts that significantly exceed the size of their own funds. This is called providing leverage. For example, having a deposit of 1,000 USD with a 1: 400 leverage, a trader can make deals for 400,000 USD.

The broker also opens access to analytics, auxiliary tools, and trading signals. Modern trading is impossible without all this.

What is the benefit of a broker?  

 

The broker JBALPHA makes profit from traders' transactions, as a rule, in two main ways.

The first is the most common. Using spreads. This word refers to the difference between the best prices for buying and selling a particular asset at a particular moment. Moreover, in a transaction between a trader and a broker, the price is one, and between a broker and users of the Forex market - another. The mediator takes the difference for himself.

The second way is easier to understand. This is the collection of a commission for each transaction performed. Most often it has a standard value, but it can be measured as a percentage.

Thus, the brokerage company is interested in attracting as many clients as possible and for them to conduct active trading.

 

Ways to cheat customers  

 

We have found out how honest brokers should work and how they work. Now let's look at how scammers operate, they are also called the kitchen.

The most common way to cheat is to tweak quotes. The broker provides the trader with quotes that differ from the real market ones. Data substitution occurs in order to make operations unprofitable. The deposit is reduced, and then completely zeroed out. At the same time, the trader thinks that his operations were carried out in the market, but in fact - only on the site of scammers.

Bonuses are traps. They are generously distributed for anything: for registration, account replenishment, etc. Only after that, in order for the client to withdraw his own money, mixed with bonus money, it will be necessary to fulfill a number of virtually impossible conditions. For example, conduct trading operations for an amount tens of times greater than the size of the deposit.

In the User Agreement, a clause can also be disguised that allows the broker to manage the client's money. Inattention when reading such an agreement most often turns into a complete loss of the deposit.

 

Where are brokerage companies registered?

 

One of the key points is the place of registration and regulation of the company's activities.

Let's talk about registration first. As a rule, brokers from either their own country or from an economically developed country, for example, a member of the European Union, are more credible to traders. Of course, compliance with UK legislation is reassuring, and compliance with the legislation of an unknown island in the Indian Ocean does not mean anything to most.

However, most brokerage companies are registered offshore. And it's not only about small offices, but also about world leaders. Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Belize, Marshall Islands, Mauritius are offshore zones popular among brokers. By registering there, companies pay significantly less taxes than in the place of actual location, which is sometimes carefully hidden.

If a trader has any claims against such a company, then it is likely that he will have to deal with it in accordance with the legislation of that very conditional Belize. It is possible to be physically present there at the court sessions. And this is extremely expensive and difficult.

But is it worth running like fire from just the word "offshore"? As an answer, we will give the names of companies that are not related to brokerage, but with an impeccable reputation and also save on taxes through offshore registration: Apple, Pfizer, Microsoft, General Electric, Intel.

And here we come to the second important point - this is the regulation of the broker's activities. First of all, it is carried out at the level of the state where the company is registered. Each country has its own regulatory body for brokerage activities. So, in Russia it is the Central Bank of the Russian Federation. A trader can find permissive documentation on the websites of such bodies. But there are also supranational structures. For example, the International Financial Commission (The Financial Commission), which is an independent self-regulatory organization,   considering disputes between its members - brokers and their clients.

If the broker's website does not contain information about the regulation of its activities, then these are almost certainly scammers. Or the site contains information about a certain license issued to him, but this information is not confirmed anywhere else. Most likely, these are also scammers.

 

What else to pay attention to?

 

When choosing a brokerage company, study its history. Check out the links to her experts. If one of the leading TV channels in economic news for 5 years in a row refers to the opinion of the analyst of the broker in question, this is good. If a broker claims to have been working for 15 years, but there is no information about him on the Internet at all, this is bad.

It's important to pay attention to company reviews. And read them not only on the website of the broker itself. In the kitchen, they will probably only be laudatory. It is best to browse as many sites as possible.

Pay attention exclusively to the specifics in the offers on the brokers' websites. Honest companies openly write about interest, spread size, minimum deposit, etc. Fraudsters lure with loud, streamlined phrases about a rich tomorrow, stable income, misleading with incomprehensible terms about multi-sites, super functions, and so on.

Find out the company's connection with well-known brands, financial institutions, public organizations. For example, it can be sponsored. Large brokers sometimes hold social promotions. Fraudsters will definitely not do this.

Thus, the process of choosing a broker is complex. But if you approach it carefully, it will allow you to enter the world of trading, which has made millions of people rich all over the world.
