The Good
  • 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
  • Very low and competitive spreads depending on the account type
  • Leverage can be either removed or customised for the whole account
The Bad
  • 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)
  • Extremely low asset offering (over 80+ instruments in total)
  • All of Tickmill’s assets are CFDs (users can’t purchase real stocks or ETFs)
