ALB Review

ALB.com is a peculiar color patch on the map of the European Forex / CFD industry online.

Launched only in 2017, which makes it a novice, in theory, the operation has already collected several prestigious awards from the European financial industry.

It has been considered as the best Forex and Trade Execution House company in Europe in 2017 and has also picked up the Best Newcomer Award at the China Forex Exhibition 2017.

The company has established a regional association with the Borussia Dortmund football team in Italy.

Long story short: ALB has been very busy on the marketing front after its launch and have achieved impressive achievements in a remarkably short time in this regard.

The corporate entity was registered on 02.28.2017 and the MFSA license was issued on 03.30.2017. The company’s address is 48, Casa Roma, Sir Augustus Bartolo Street, Ta’Xbiex, Malta. Your company ID is C 79767.

ALB Ltd. is authorized and authorized by the MFSA (Financial Services Authority of Malta) to provide investment services under the Investment Services Law. It has a category 3 license and is authorized to provide 2 investment services; negotiation on own account and execution of orders on behalf of other people. It is aimed at retail clients, professional clients (including collective investment schemes), as well as eligible counterparts.

The MFSA is an EU regulator, which means that the license granted to ALB.com gives the latter the right to operate throughout the EEA, obviously, with the exception of countries that have banned online commerce for most attempts and purposes.

With that, we can conclude with certainty that the regulatory bases of the operations are very solid.

ALB.com’s approach to conquer European markets is competent, well executed and effective.


Why would I want to choose these guys over their competitors, possibly more experienced?

ALB.com is proud of the technology it employs. In fact, the commercial platforms are cutting-edge and the commercial conditions are also more than decent.

In addition, the broker is trusted and regulated, as noted above, and is a member of the Compensation Scheme for Investors, in accordance with EU Directive 97/9.

Funds deposited by merchants are kept in segregated accounts. The financial statements of the operation are regularly audited by Price Waterhouse Coopers.

Although it does not produce its own analysis and educational material, the agent provides access to external providers of said services and advantages.

Perhaps most importantly: the insurance agent claims to offer negative balance protection. The best way to trade safely is to choose a regulated broker, since the regulation requires that the broker protect the negative balance of a client, so that customers can not lose more than they have initially deposited. As a regulated agent, ALB provides this. In addition, as a member of the Compensation Scheme for Investors (ICS), clients enjoy the protection of a rescue fund in case the company ceases to operate due to a failure.

ALB.com Trading Platforms

The selection of the broker’s trading platform is really impressive: it has some of the best and most popular platforms aligned, including WebTrader MT4, MT5 and MetaQuotes, which satisfies all the possible needs of merchants.

Those who know their trading platforms, know very well that this selection is probably not a coincidence: each of the highlighted platforms satisfies different needs.

MT4 is beyond doubt, the most popular and possibly the most capable trading platform.

In addition to the excellent graphics creation capabilities, not to mention a fully customizable trading environment, MT4 also supports automated trading, through EA. The EAs are, in fact, among the most popular features of the MetaQuotes platform suite and work best in conjunction with a good and reliable VPS service.

MT4 is also available for mobile devices.

MT5 may sound like the natural evolutionary iteration of MT4, but it is a little different in several ways.

That said, it offers an excellent set of features and capabilities, such as an excellent technical analysis facilitated by more than 80 built-in technical indicators.

There is also an economic calendar available through the platform, which is VERY useful in terms of fundamental analysis.

No less than 8 types of orders are compatible with the platform: stop loss, profit taking, purchase / sale stop limit, sales limit, sales stop, purchase stop and purchase limit.

The user interface is available in many different languages.

Like MT4, MT5 is also available in a mobile version. This version comes with some 30 pre-installed technical indicators, and also supports no less than 3 types of graphics and 9 time frames.

The WebTrader is for those who can not bother to download and install anything on their local machines. The browser’s compatibility with Web Trader is excellent: all you need to access is an Internet connection.

As for the features, although it is definitely not the same as the full MT4 / MT5 platforms, WebTrader covers 9 time frames and about 30 of the most popular and useful technical indicators.

Through Market Watch, it offers market quotes in real time.


Deposit/Withdrawal Methods 

In this sense, ALB.com accepts credit cards and bank transfers.

In addition: for credit cards, deposits in EUR and USD are accepted. Regarding bank transfers, users can deposit in EUR, USD, CHF and GBP.

It is said that withdrawals are processed on the day the request is received.

All client funds deposited in ALB are completely separated from the company’s own funds and are kept in separate bank accounts. ALB guarantees that funds belonging to customers can not be used for any other purpose. In addition, ALB has its interim and annual financial reports audited by Price Waterhouse Coopers, a leading financial auditor in the world.

Market Coverage and Trading Conditions

The broker’s market coverage is excellent. Handles the main usual categories of currency pairs, indices, energies, products and crypts.

As usual, the pairs of effects have some of the best commercial conditions. The differential in the EUR / USD pair is 8. More than 100 currency pairs can be traded and, as regards account types, there is a gross margin account as well as an ECN account available to operators.

You can market agricultural products such as wheat, soybeans and corn, as well as energy such as oil and natural gas.

As far as cryptocurrencies are concerned: there are a total of 5 available: bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, XRP and bitcoin Cash. However, the spreads in this asset class are quite substantial, which, when considering the volatility of these digital assets, is understandable.

It is important to note that you can not make real purchases of cryptography on ALB.com. This asset class is negotiated through a financial derivative.

European, North American and Asian indices are also available for derivatives-based trading.

ALB Conclusion

ALB.com may be a new player on the FX / CFD court online, but by no means is it a green horn.

The broker has created a very attractive global commercial package, with excellent platforms and excellent market coverage.

The fact that ALB.com is regulated by Malta and that offers multiple layers of protection to the investor can not be overlooked either. There is the membership of the Compensation Scheme for investors, the protection of the negative balance and the protection that comes with the use of segregated accounts for clients’ money.

To ensure that each client receives a personalized service with the utmost confidentiality and professionalism, ALB provides services to its clients in 8 different languages ​​with a personal account manager available in live chat and telephone support.

Please note that certain products and / or multiplier levels may not be available to traders in EEA countries due to legal restrictions.
