I know that a broker would try to do their best to help a customer learn if they are beginners so that they stick with them. Apart from that, do you think there might be other reasons behind doing it?
I have noticed how many beginners are attracted by the low spreads and even such statements as "1 click trade!!", which lead me to the conclusion that beginners can be easily misled. Hence, the broker knowing from the start whether their customer is a beginner or not may help them obtain larger profit margins (by factors that the beginners are not well aware of), and harder if the customer has some experience. What I am trying to say is that they will not try to fool the experienced traders because they may lose their business. That, in general, doesn't sound like a good broker to me.
So, is it normal for brokers to ask whether I am a beginner?
P.S. if that's going to help, the broker that asked me is activtrades.bg, which is the Bulgarian version of activtrades.com.
