Fees and account types
AGEA is not explicit about its fees but it states that it charges from the spread as well as commissions. If you prefer fixed spreads, you can request it after creating a cent or standard account. Before creating an MT4 account, you must first own a Streamster account. For all platforms, the maximum leverage is 1:100. The account currencies available are USD, EUR, GBP, CAD, AUD, JPY, and CHF.
This account is only available on the MT4 platform. The minimum deposit is $6 while the maximum account balance is $5,000.
Also available on the MT4 platform, this is the primary account designed for experienced traders. The minimum deposit is $100.
This is the default account that is automatic with registration. Clients can complete their account registrations, upload KYC documents, and fund their accounts on the Streamster platform. $1 is the minimum deposit on this platform.
AGEA offers a demo account for practice purposes. Traders can practice with the $10,000 virtual funds that come with the account. There are no limitations with the demo account.
The minimum spread for the benchmark EURUSD is 1.2 pips which is rather high, when compared with the top rated brokers.
AGEA has a Zero-Interest policy on all positions opened on the web-based Streamster trading platform. This means those swap fees are not charged on these platforms. However, swap fees are charged on the MT4 platform.
Inactivity fees of $20.00 are charged yearly from accounts that have remained dormant for a 12 month period. Yearly payment is rather low when compared to competitors that charge monthly payments once the account becomes dormant.

The platform has a simple interface, standard technical analysis tools as well as news, account, and risk management tools. Several payment options are available and you can commence trading with as little as $1.
However, the assets index is small and beginner traders are not offered much training. Only a few training articles are provided. No daily analysis, signals or expert insights are provided. There are no provisions for forex market investors as there are no social trading platform or managed accounts. Though a regulated broker, but the regulatory authority is not as popular as CySEC, FCA, ASIC or other standard regulators widely known among forex traders and analysts.
Summarily, AGEA is an experienced broker still has to do a lot if it wants to become a top rated broker.
