cTrader ID (cTID)

Traders often use several trading accounts with one or several brokers.

cTrader ID is a single identifier that allows for accessing any broker’s version of cTrader and switching between the trading accounts with one click without the need of entering the account number and password combinations each time.

You only need to log in once with your email and password, (or with your Google or Facebook account), and all your trading accounts become available from your cTrader ID.

After logging in with your cTID to any cTrader application, you get instant access to all your trading accounts with the corresponding broker, as well as workspaces, watchlists, email settings, price alerts, copying accounts, and much more.

Your cTID credentials are securely held at dedicated servers with the highest level of encryption to provide you with a safe trading environment wherever you are.

cTrader ID (cTID) is a set of credentials used for signing in across all cTrader applications and across different brokers by using a single unified account.

Creating a New cTrader ID

With the first launch of the cTrader Web application, a cTID register form will pop up automatically. Here you can sign up for a new cTID, or log in with the existing one.

To create a new cTID, type in your email and password, and click Sign Up. Alternatively, use the respective buttons below to sign up via Facebook or Google.

Note that in case of signing up via the social networks, you should be logged in to your Facebook or Google account.

In this case, your cTID will be created automatically, and your social network account credentials will be automatically assigned as cTID credentials.

Your email registered for the respective account will be used as your cTID email address.

Trading Account and cTID

Your trading accounts with a broker are automatically linked to your cTID. After logging in to cTrader with your cTID, the respective broker's trading accounts will open automatically.

If you have decided to create a new cTID, you can contact your broker to relink (link) your existing trading account to your new cTrader ID.

Hover over the cTID bar to the upper right to expand the cTrader ID settings.

From this drop-down, you can change the cTID credentials, manage your Active Sessions, proceed to cTID website to manage cTrader ID, or Sign Out from the cTrader ID.
