The Good
  • Low spreads offered in their raw account
  • Wide variety of cryptocurrency pairs with low spreads
  • Their “trading ideas” and “live coaches” offering is quite interesting and provides a lot of value for new traders
  • Their proprietary platform is very simple and easy to use
  • Their equities offering is completely commission-free
The Bad
  • Asset offering is low when compared to similar brokers
  • Standard account spreads are relatively high (from 1 pip)
  • All assets are CFDs, there is no ability to buy real shares
  • Asides from stocks and ETFs, their asset offering lacks variety
  • Their web platform is completely impractical to use for professional trading
  • They don’t let you enjoy your demo trading experience in peace, there is a constant pop-up asking you to fund your account at all times
