Brokers and services

Where to trade online is an important part of trading. I have tried many different brokers and services.

I finally ended up with a couple of brokers I prefer to use. Each broker has it's own strengths that give me reason to use them.

I recommend the following brokers and services:

Plus500

Plus500
Plus500 is a CFD broker. I recommend them for the following reasons:
  • Regulated broker
  • Wide range of CFDs on forex pairs, indices, commodities, shares, ETFs and options
  • Easy to use trading platforms (web-based and mobile)
  • Negative balance protection. Read this post as to why negative balance protection is desired sometimes.
  • Trailing stops available
I use them for shorting CFDs on options

Markets.com


Markets.com is a CFD broker. I recommend them for the following reasons:
  • Regulated broker

Etoro

Etoro.com is a CFD broker and copy trading platform. I recommend them for the following reasons:
  • Regulated broker
  • Wide range of CFDs on forex pairs, cryptos, indices, commodities, shares, etfs and bonds
  • Easy to use trading platforms (web-based and mobile)
  • Negative balance protection. Read this post as to why negative balance protection is desired sometimes.
  • Offeres unleveraged CFDs on stocks, etfs, cryptos, etc. without overnight fees. This makes it possible to take a portfolio management approach.
  • You can copy portfolios of other traders, so you don't (always) have to trade yourself.

Cashbackforex

You can use cashbackforex to get paid to trade, aka earn rebates. It lowers the spreads / trading costs. I suggest you check it out if you haven't already. If you sign up through my affiliate links, it will not cost you anything, while allowing me to earn a small commission. You will get rebates that lower your trading cost. Also if you are interested in trading with other brokers, then you can do so via their service.
Get paid to trade!


Zulutrade


Zulutrade is a service where you can follow other traders trades automatically in a brokerage account of your choice.
This service is great if you do not have the time or deep experience to trade the forex markets by yourself.

Best for autotrading forex!



Coinbase

I am a big believer of crypto currencies. My entrypoint into this market is Coinbase. They just make it so easy to buy and sell Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum.
