FBS Official Trade App “FBS Trader” | How to Use

FBS, which is famous as a sponsor of FC Barcelona, supports both MT4 and MT5 of MetaTrader as a trading platform, but also provides the original official app.

Moreover, there are three types.

The biggest difference from MetaTrader is that you can deposit and withdraw.

In this article, I will focus on the trading app “FBS Trader” and carefully explain everything from the outline of FBS Trader, the list of functions, advantages and disadvantages, differences from MT4 and MT5, installation procedure to main usage.

Official Site

What is FBS?

FBS is a forex broker company founded in 2009.

It is a very reliable broker because it has multiple financial licenses and the assets under custody from customers are trust protection with no upper limit.

It is also a very attractive broker, offering an account opening bonus and a 100% deposit bonus at all times.

The trading conditions are not bad, especially the spread of European currency pairs (such as EURUSD) is very narrow.

There is also a cashback program, and every time you trade, you get cashback, so the real spread is very narrow and you will be the broker with the lowest commission level.

Therefore, it is a very popular in the world, and it is well known and highly evaluated.

Three FBS Official Apps

There are 3 types of official apps as below.

I’ve organized a list of functions that can be used in each case.

Here’s a very brief explanation:

FBS Trading Broker: Only account management (cannot trade)
FBS Trader    : For Trading
FBS Copytrade  : For Copy Trading

The biggest difference is whether you can trade.

You cannot trade with the FBS Trading Broker app.

You need to use MT4 or MT5 for trading.
Think of this app as the app version of the official website.


You can trade with FBS Trader app.
For discretionary trading only.

You don’t need to use MT4 and MT5 apps.
However, the functionality is fairly simple and can only be used for very basic operations and analysis.
Details will be described later.


You can also trade with FBS Copytrade app.

However, as the name implies, it is exclusively for copy trading.

Copy trading is the automatic trading of exactly the same as a trader somewhere in the world.
It is called a copy trade because it copies (imitates) a trade.
However, if the amount of funds is different, you can change the number of lots to order.

Advantage and Disadvantage of FBS Trader App

From here, I will focus on the “FBS Trader” app, which is most likely to be used, and first sort out its advantages and disadvantages.

  • Deposit and withdrawal is applicable
  • Can see promotion information
  • Can chat with support
  • Can manage accounts such as leverage changes
  • User management such as password change is applicable
  • Very simple trading functions
  • Can trade Cryptos (MT4 doesn’t allow to trade cryptos)
  • Chart cannot be customized
  • Can’t use technical indicators
  • Can’t order IFD

FBS Trader does not have a full range of trading functions.

The minimum functions are checking price movements on charts, ordering, and closing positions.

It is impossible to display an indicator on the chart for technical analysis like MT4 and MT5.

So, as a usage, I think that you can analyze the chart on a big screen such as a PC, and with FBS Trader, you can only place an order, check the position you have, and do close.



On the other hand, as a merit, you can manage account and personal info, even can do deposit and withdrawal, so if you can accept its minimum trading function, you can use it as a one-stop smartphone application that can cover everything.

In addition, you can chat with support on the smartphone app and check new promotions, so I think it is convenient depending on how you use it.

Difference between FBS Trader and MT4 / MT5

There are many details, but the biggest difference is the analytical environment.

MT4 and MT5 are several times better.

You can display multiple indicators on the chart of MT4/MT5, or you can draw a horizontal line yourself.

Although it is a small smartphone screen, you can do some technical analysis.

Well, FBS Trader is a simple is best, so I think it’s good for use anyway.

Summary

That’s all.

Compared to MT4 and MT5, FBS Trader has considerably narrowed down the functions, but it can be used together with MT4 and MT5 because it can be done from deposit and withdrawal to ordering in one stop and the minimum trade can be done. is.

In addition, in the New Year 2021 promotion that is being carried out as of December 2020 at the time of writing this article, a lottery will be held in which you can get luxurious products according to the amount traded with this FBS Trader.
