Blog, Updates & News
After nearly one year of hard work, we are finally ready to announce the biggest software update in our history. 1Broker version 2.0 will be made available on November 2nd, 8:00 AM (New York time). To give you an idea of the size of this update, more than 50,000 lines of code were written, which took us about 3000 working hours. Based on the feedback we received over the past years, virtually nothing was left untouched:
Brand New Interface
The trading panel and website were split apart and developed from scratch. They will present themselves more minimalist and faster than ever before. Designed and optimized for widescreen displays and mobile devices, you will enjoy a consistent trading experience wherever you are. Instead of bloating it with unnecessary new features, we focused on the most important things: Speed and simplicity.
You will be able to share your trading ideas and copy other users’ trades. With the help of our community you can stay ahead of the game and gain a significant advantage over other “isolated” market participants. If someone follows your trading idea, you will even receive a monetary reward! A perfect opportunity to earn a second passive income by sharing your knowledge.
A precise and powerful charting tool is a necessity for every modern trading platform. Our new D3-based software offers a great set of basic functionality, including SMA and EMA indicators, and will be extended further in the future.
In the coming years, we will try to reach out to non-English speaking traders too. As a first step, we translated our website to Spanish and German.
… and much more.
We are looking forward to your feedback and hope you enjoy this milestone.
Be aware that the symbol of Volkswagen (VOW) will change to VOW3, the current symbol (VOW) will be deactivated.
Deutsche Bank (DBK) will be a new member on our platform with the 5th of October. The bank is currently experiencing trouble and a drastic drop in share value; it is unsure if the bank will be able to avoid insolvency or will be forced to depend on governmental support. However many other enterprises do have concerns in regard to the upcoming Brexit and the therefore necessary relocation of thousands of employees. Our new addition with headquarters in both London and Frankfurt is therefore a secure and stable alternative, even with the occurring of political discrepancies. This head start is one of many reasons why we are delighted about the current expansion.
Today, we are pleased to announce the addition of 5 new markets to our platform:
We value your feedback, so if you have any suggestions about which markets you would like to see added in the future, let us know!

because of the United Kingdom European Union membership referendum we have lowered our maximum leverages for markets, where we expect higher volatility in the coming days: EUR/USD, EUR/GBP, EUR/USD, EUR/JPY, GBP/USD and FTSE 100.
We will return to our usual maximums on Friday 24th.
As announced, we reduced our spreads for selected markets to celebrate our 1.000.000th order. Below is a table to get a better overview of the changes.

Today, the 1.000.000th order was placed, which marks an incredible milestone for 1Broker. When we started this project five years ago, we never imagined that we can achieve this.
Words can't describe how thankful we are for all the people who have joined us along this journey, and hopefully this is just the beginning of an even more exciting future.
In the coming months huge changes will be introduced to the platform, some of which were suggested in your feedback, which we thank you for.
To celebrate this event, we will be adding new markets on June 15'th. Additionally, we will be permanently lowering the spreads for selected markets.
More details about market additions and the upcoming changes to the platform will be published soon.
To the moon!
