🏛 Financial Regulators
  • MFSA (Malta Financial Services Authority)
  • Not regulated, Registered in St. Vincent and the Grenadines under IBC 19776.
The Good
  • 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
  • High leverage offered due to no regulatory restrictions
  • MetaTrader 4 & 5 platforms with their own copy trading integration
  • Low minimum deposit
The Bad
  • 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
  • Despite having financial licenses, OctaFX does not operate using them, meaning that they are an unregulated broker.
  • Their asset offering is extremely limited (80 instruments)
