Acri Pro is an international brokerage brand that provides the platform for clients worldwide to trade forex and CFDs in a competitive environment. Guided by the virtues of transparency, honesty and professionalism, the brokerage aims to develop and implement cutting edge technologies that will serve a global clientele.

Acri maintains that all deposits received from clients are kept in segregated bank accounts, which is a standard for all regulated brokerages. This means that Acri does not use clients’ funds to run its brokerage operations but deposits them into bank accounts separate from its owner. Also, clients are required to undergo the ‘Know your customer (KYC) procedure which entails uploading a government-issued identity card and a utility bill.
Visit the Acri website and click on ‘Register’ at the top right-hand side of every web page. Input your name, email, phone number, choose a password and click ‘Register’. A demo and live account is created at this juncture, and you are logged into the clients’ dashboard.
After filling out the registration form on Acri’s website, a demo account with $500 virtual money is automatically created with a real account. The account currency depends on your country of residence; it can be in EUR, USD or GBP. The account types available are:
- Bronze account: Targeted at beginners who want to feel live trading, probably after trading on demo accounts. The least amount required to open this account is $500 or €500 or £500. The leverage is capped at 1:150 while the margin level is 20%.
- Silver account: This is the actual account for standard traders who are part-time or full-time traders. At least $2,500 is needed to open the account. The margin level is 25%, while leverage is a maximum of 1:200.
- Gold account: This is the premium account suitable for high volume traders. The leverage is capped at 1:300, but $25,000 is needed to open the account.

To fund your Acri trading account, choose any of the methods below:
Cryptocurrencies: Popular crypto coins like BTC and ETH can be used for deposits and withdrawals.
Debit/Credit cards: If you need instant funding of your trading account, this is your best option because deposits are processed instantly, and there are no commissions.

Research and education
This is one of the prominent tools provided by Acri on its WebTrader platform. Social trading enables newbies or investors to make profits without learning or knowing how to trade. The newbie will register and fund his account, join social trading by clicking the button on the website, look for expert traders to follow and then copy their trades. Acri provides the list of expert traders ranked according to their performance, copiers and profitability. Once a newbie or investor settles for an expert provider and clicks’ copy’, all his trades are automatically copied by the investor’s account anytime the expert trades. So, he makes a profit when the expert does.
Acri provides a few training articles on its website. These articles teach prospective or new traders important concepts like pips, margins, technical analysis, fundamental analysis, trading strategies and some trading tips.
Though a new brokerage, Acri has launched its operation in an organised way focusing on technology and customer satisfaction. The safety of the clients and their deposits remain paramount to the broker. Speedy order executions, multiple tradable assets, low transaction fees, multiple payment options, social trading are some of the strengths of the brokerage brand. There is more to come as the brokerage is still in its nascent stages.
