After spending seven months and hundreds of hours researching 43 different forex brokers for trading FX, our team at ForexBrokers.com team collected over 6,000 data points. For this review, we will compare Admiral Markets vs AvaTrade.

To compare these two FX brokers, we will first take a look at the fees charged for trading (no easy task). Not every forex broker publicizes their average spreads, spreads data can vary, as can execution policies and how commissions are charged. Specifically, is the broker a dealing desk (market maker), no dealing desk (agency broker) or are both execution methods offered (dealing desk + STP/ECN)? To simplify this research, we assessed everything for you and provide a single star rating for cost. Both Admiral Markets and AvaTrade hold a 3.50 star rating.

Commissions and fees aside, let's take a look at regulation and currency availability. Trust is critical, and you should highly consider choosing a broker that regulated in a major hub. Admiral Markets alongside AvaTrade are regulated in a major hub. Admiral Markets nor AvaTrade are publicly traded companies. As far as how many currency pairs are available for trading, here's the answer. AvaTrade boasts an offering of 60 different currency pairs compared to Admiral Markets's 55 available pairs.

Next, let's look at the tools and features fx traders desire. With trading platforms, forex traders are all familiar with MetaTrader. Both Admiral Markets and AvaTrade offer Meta Trader. Regardless of the trading platform you use, charting should be feature rich. To help compare these two brokers, we counted the number of drawing tools and total technical indicators made available. Both Admiral Markets and AvaTrade provide clients with access to 31 total charting tools. Both brokers offer clients access to the same number of indicators (eg, moving averages), 51.

Overall, Admiral Markets takes the upper hand with 4.00 stars over AvaTrade's 3.50 stars. And, when it comes to individual category awards, Admiral Markets posted awards Best in Class - Investor Education in 2018, while AvaTrade found itself with none of these.
