Any institution and forex broker who would want to offer currency pairs trading services to their client would blindly pick MT4 Admin License or its low-cost version MT4 White Label.
The institutions and brokers got an option to go with multi-asset trading software MT5 White Label which is essentially an upgrade to MT4 only. It simply meant that the monopolistic position of MetaTrader White Labels remained unchallenged.
But not for very long! Spotware Systems Limited launched cTrader Trading Software in the year 2010. Ever since its release, cTrader has been a major challenger to MetaTrader 4 and 5.
We will discuss the differences between MetaTrader 4/5 and cTrader later.
Let’s first learn more about cTrader White Label Solution!
How do Brokers, Institutions, Technology Providers get a cTrader License?
Spotware sells cTrader Admin or Server Licenses to Brokers, Institutions, Technology Providers who want to have full access to all the modules and systems of cTrader Trading Software.
They are authorized to further sell the cTrader White Label Licenses to forex brokers.
Typically an entrepreneur that’s looking to start forex brokerage at low cost would want to go with the cTrader White Label solution as it’s cheaper than the cTrader Admin License.
Even an established Forex Broker may opt for cTrader White Label Solution in case their clients demand it or may they just want to show more options of trading platforms.
There are several forex brokers that offer MT4, MT5, and cTrader Trading Platforms to their clients.
Hope it’s clear to you that if you are looking for a cTrader White Label, you need to get it from someone who owns cTrader Admin License.
What is cTrader White Label Solution?
cTrader White Label is a second-level license for forex brokers issued by cTrader Admin License holder at a nominal cost. A cTrader White Label gets the groups, trading instruments like currency pairs, indices, metals, energy, bullion, etc as per their agreement with the cTrader White Label provider.
cTrader Admin Licenses have their own accesses, authorizations, and settings as per the agreement entered into with Spotware while purchasing the cTrader Server License. White Labels may get access to some or all of these environments only.
Two key elements of cTrader White Label delivery
STRUCTURE: As explained above, every cTrader Admin license has its own cTrader Server environment with authorizations and accesses. Technically cTrader White Label is a sublicense that is set up in one of these cTrader Server environments with a set of cTrader graphical user interfaces (GUIs).
The cTrader White label user gets to access the services and settings associated with that particular admin or server environment.
A single cTrader server environment can support several cTrader white labels thereby giving a great revenue stream to cTrader Admin License holders. This ultimately helps cTrader White Label brokers as they can get competitive pricing due to cost distribution to several other white label brokers.
PERMISSIONS: The cTrader Admin license owner has complete access and control over this environment. They enjoy absolute authority over everything and maintain the responsibility of managing the access rights assigned to their cTrader white label brokers. They also have full access to all areas, and keeps ultimate control of liquidity, symbol and price quotes settings, etc.

MT4/MT5 White Label V/S cTrader White Label
While MT4/MT5 White Label allows Forex Brokers to run A Book, B Book and C Book depending on their own preference, with cTrader White Label, a broker can only run A Book.
As you read above cTrader only allows A Book trade executions, a broker must connect with a Liquidity Provider that too with cTrader Liquidity only.
They have no other choice, unlike MT4 & MT5 White Label where a broker may decide not to work with a Liquidity Provider and even if they do, they can choose the forex liquidity provider of their own preference.
MT4 & MT5 trading terminals haven’t seen much improvement in the past 2 decades, they are still plain and simple. And don’t take us wrong, they are amazing and people like simplicity.
cTrader’s Trading Terminal looks sharp and much customizable and sharp. This is just our opinion based on using both platforms and talking to traders who have worked with MT4, MT5, and cTrader.
Custom Plugins Development:
MT4 & MT5 are very flexible with third-party plugins. So if a Forex Broker needs an additional feature or function, they may opt for a plugin developed by a third party.
In the case of cTrader, all the new features and functions are developed by the Spotware team only. As a cTrader White Label broker, you can only make a request to them. This makes cTrader a much-closed community.
To conclude this comprehensive guide on cTrader White Label, we would say that if you are allowing for an alternative to MT4 or MT5 White Label Solution, it’s your best choice.
If you are looking to run an A Book brokerage and want perfect solutions, cTrader White Label is best as you get all the software, tools, plugins, etc developed by the Spotware team only.
