Alpari RU is still holding strong, despite the recent bankruptcy issues facing its sister company Alpari UK. Alpari RU remains the largest forex broker in Russia as it services Russian and Commonwealth of Independent States clients. The broker has announced developments on its trading conditions for binary options platform, "OptionTrader" as well as the launch of a new platform “BinaryTrader”. A reduction in the initial trading deposit has been implemented, effective from May 11, 2015.
Now, traders can open accounts with a new live account with as little as USD50, EUR50 or RUB 2,500. This presents a new opportunity to newbies and small time traders as this amount is actually about half the previous amount required to open such accounts.
This development is connected to the launch of a new platform for binary options trading, which is an improvement of the trading conditions for OptionTrader. The new platform is called “BinaryTrader”. It is basically just a development from the previous optiontrader as they bear strong similarities. Therefore traders can choose to stay in their comfort zone by remaining on the old platform. But those ho choose to adopt the new platform will have no problems getting around with it.
The new platform allows four types of trading:
- One Touch,
- Range High/Low
- Spread High/Low.
It includes 2 spot metals, 17 currency pairs, as the platform is fully web based, therefore allowing for easy access from any computer. This reiterates the growing influence of binary options trading as an alternative to Forex trading as Alpari launches Binary Trader.
