We always strive to employ the most up-to-date systems and only work with account managers who excel in the field.

    Opening your ALT Markets account is easy. Email us and we will send you a simple account application form that you can complete and send back to us. We will open your account and provide you with your personal login details so that you can access your account at any time.

  • Strategies

    Forex trading can be daunting, especially for new traders. Because of the very nature of the markets changing daily – often hourly due to geo-political and economic trends new ‘traders’ often fail within days or weeks during their learning curve.

    Many Companies offer free trials on Online Trading Web systems with several hours of You-Tube training videos. Seldom do these new private investors have the patience, understanding or back up to trade profitably and the majority of those that try usually give up and withdraw what’s left of their initial investment and give up.

    This is where ALT Markets are different. We offer a fully Managed service, allowing you to continue with your work, retirement or travel yet still with 24/7 access to your account from the Internet via your Laptops, Tablets or smart phones.

    Managed Service

    • We monitor the major Currency Pairs such as the Euro/Dollar, Euro/Sterling, Sterling/Dollar etc.
    • We rarely make more than one Trade per day. Occasionally we might chose not to Trade at all.
    • We adopt a Conservative strategy trading no more than 2-3% of your account´s equity on each trade.
    • Never trade more than 2% of your account´s equity in a single sector.
    • With a 5% Stop Loss strategy, we do not chase losses; we stop trading and evaluate the situation.
    • Always trade on risk capital, money that you can afford to lose.
    • Keep a trade calendar. Losses will occur less frequently than gains, we do not hide these, we are fully transparent.
