The Good
  • Competitive spreads in their ECN PRIME account (From 0.1 Pips)
  • MT4 & 5 platforms offered
  • Broad asset offering in their investing account (more than 10,000 assets)
  • Friendly, smooth and simple proprietary platforms (both web and mobile)
  • Great spreads on stocks and no commissions on investing accounts
The Bad
  • Their standard asset offering is very low (over 300 instruments)
  • Share trading requires a separate platform with a different onboarding
  • Commissions are above average and share trading fees are a mystery
  • Despite both platforms being beautiful, they are gamified for engagement. Clicking on the buy button on mobile platform will trigger a random order without asking for confirmation
  • Asides from stocks, their asset offering lacks variety
  • Very high forex spreads (1.4 Pips on EUR/USD)
