You can access or download cTrader for Windows desktop, run it on a web browser, Android and iOS. You also need to sure that you download cTrader and install the right version, otherwise your credentials might not work. cTrader is a white label trading platform. This means that each cTrader broker has their own version of the platform. This has been known to confuse traders since they assume that there is just one cTrader. This is not the case, there are many instances of cTrader. For example, cTrader has dozens of version of the platform in Google Play. Each one belongs to a specific broker.

Different Versions of cTrader Download

If you download cTrader Public Beta from Spotware’s website, you are downloading the demo version from Spotware. Spotware is not a broker, so they do not offer live accounts. When you create an account from a broker, such as Pepperstone, you will need to download the Pepperstone version of cTrader from their website or client area.

The trading account you create with Pepperstone for example, cannot be accessed from different versions of cTrader. Don’t let cTrader ID confuse you. Even though cTrader lets you create one login to access all brokers, you can only see the accounts that belong to the specific version of cTrader you are using. This rule is the same for all version of the platform, even mobile. There is one exception to this rule, however. If you search “Pepperstone cTrader” in the Google Play store, currently you will see three different versions of cTrader. Now that’s confusing. There is a reason for this. See the diagram and explanation below.
