Thanks: 204 given,
I tried it on the ads that show you a wide range of functionality. In practise I personally found it clunky feeling and not for me. Try it for yourself on demo if you really want to see what it's like.

Lol, thanks, M Descartes, appreciate it - yes, by Spotware...interesting platform, some friends are using it, i guess thru IC markets...there are some youtube vids on it, and i've downloaded the demo, just wondered if anyone had any thoughts...
just to give a little background, I am writing my own platform in F# (for personal use), enjoying the process, see pic

CTrader looks pretty tight tho, it may be better for mobile trading...
(I can post the Fsharp code if anyone is interested......perhaps i should do a thread somewhere else? I realize this is slightly off-topic)

@RJ3000 congratulations on building your own platform. I am also working on some proprietary tools myself.
I have been using the CTrader platform for about a year and a half now. I have found it to work intuitively, and rather flexible for a web based platform. With that said, I don't use the platform actively as I make infrequent long timeframe FX trades. To add, it is not a platform that I use for analysis.
It is indeed easy to use for mobile trading from any device (pc, tablet, phone). In addition, I found the platform to be responsive and fast. I experienced great server connectivity across europe, usual latency was under <15 ms.
What might intrest you is the fact that cTrader also includes cAlgo/cTDN, a direct-access algorithmic trading platform; which I haven't used. I like that fact that the platform is under active development, there are frequent yet solid updates that do improve the user experience and/ or add useful platform functionality.

Cannot post link so here's the contents of the article:
One of the main players in the FX copy trading space, Tradency, has issued a company announcement outlining the firm’s collaboration with the company behind cTrader, Spotware Systems. As a result, Tradency’s Mirror Trader will fully expand cTrader’s presence on the global copy trading scene by adding a jointly run integrated solution including frontend and backend technology.
The move comes only a couple of weeks after Myfxbook announced that cTrader will be added to the firm’s copy trading solution, AutoTrade. Spotware Systems has directed the efforts of its development team to become active in the mirror trading space, playing on the fact that MetaQuotes has not been particularly happy to cooperate with copy trading companies. Realising that there is a “spot” in the market, Spotware has dedicated resources to integration efforts with two currently major copy trading providers. We wouldn’t be surprised to see other copy trading companies getting on board.
A number of heavyweight FX brokers across different continents have recently completed onboarding of cTrader, which has captured a large market share of high-volume FX traders. Spotware Systems’ Product Manager, Alex Chauzov, shared, “Clients of Tradency and cTrader will be the primary benefactors of this relationship, which will provide an important and one-of-a-kind integrated solution for brokers with an interest in offering the highest-grade FX and commodities solutions.”
As copy trading has been growing globally, Tradency was the first copy trading platform provider to be licensed by the Japanese Financial Services Agency (JFSA) back in March. Tradency’s Vice President of Sales, Oz Golan, stated in the announcement, “Mirror Trader is proving to be an essential trading tool for brokers. We are excited about our new cooperation with cTrader, and look forward to offering our clients the advantages of combining cTrader’s first-class technology with our high-end service.”
