Overall,'s pricing structure is competitive and easy to understand, helping the broker rank highly in our assessment.
Spreads comparison: Typical spreads for MetaTrader platform users was 1.4 pips on the EUR/USD using Q2 2019 data from The table below shows an average spread of 0.77 pips measured during Q3 2018 for the EUR/USD, applicable to the broker's non-MT4 platforms.

Spreads are further reduced with each subsequent level as traders surpass specific month-to-date (MTD) trading volume thresholds. For example, level five ($500 million in MTD volume) brings spreads down to as low as 0.84 pips on the EUR/USD pair.
Dealer execution: is a market maker, which means it provides dealer execution, and its ability to execute a trade will not rely on a third party the way an agency broker does. Therefore, trading with can result in potentially better dealer-execution in challenging market conditions, compared to an agency broker. Note: The broker also offers agency execution (see below).
Market execution (US only): offers a new Direct Market Access (DMA) account and execution method for its US offering. As part of this DMA account type, the execution-style is agency-based, and the broker only charges a commission. This account type also provides greater discounts for the most active traders, compared to's Active Trader program.

Platforms & Tools. provides Forex traders everything they need, and more, to trade effectively.
Advanced Trading:'s flagship platform, Advanced Trading, is best suited for seasoned traders and comes with a robust charting package loaded with a large selection of technical indicators (139 total) and drawing tools. Technical Analysis tools include automated technical analysis from Autochartist, which scans the markets for completed and emerging patterns and trade ideas. Also, more advanced traders can develop automated trading systems from the Automated Trading Center.
Web trading: Best suited for casual traders,'s Web Trading platform makes it easy to browse through markets, conduct research, analyze charts via Trading Central, and place trades.'s alternative web platform is a white-labeled version of TradingView, a popular charting web app for technical analysis, which comes with 67 indicators. While TradingView shines if you are focused solely on charting, the Web Trading platform would be my preferred choice between the two browser-based platforms at
MetaTrader: While's platform suite is already robust and finished Best in Class (top 7) in our testing, the broker also offers the complete MetaTrader suite, including both MT4 and MT5.
Research. does a great job in centralizing its research within the Advanced Trading platform and keeping it well organized for traders to easily access. Multiple news channels, automated pattern-recognition modules from Trading Central, real-time trade signals and analysis tools from Autochartist and Recognia, and blog updates from's global research team, are all available. Furthermore, offers a premium package with trading signals from Faraday research which runs £720 per annum.


Mobile Trading.'s AdvantageFX mobile app ranks highly compared to the best mobile apps in the Forex industry thanks to clean navigation and a host of trading features.
Mobile research: Several of the highlight features include an economic calendar, integrated research, and signals from Trading Central, alerts, market updates, and news, and an easy way to scroll between prices, charts, and open positions. Trading and managing positions within the mobile app are straightforward thanks to its fluid user interface and minimalist design.
Mobile charting: The app also automatically syncs watch lists and includes easy-to-use charts despite having only seven indicators and ten drawing tools. Nonetheless, I was glad to find that indicators and drawing tools added in landscape mode save upon exiting the app.
MetaTrader: For traders who prefer MetaTrader, the MT4 and MT5 apps are also available.

Trading foreign exchange on margin carries a high level of risk and may not be suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to trade foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with foreign exchange trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
