When you’ve been around on the Forex scene for a while you start to get an idea of which brokers are the best and which ones you shuold avoid. There are indeed several very god brokers out on the internet today, and also a lot of bad ones, but in this article I want to focus on the good one. In terms of popularity, you can say there are about 5-6 different brokers that are really popular these days, that probably share over 70% of all the traders. In this article I wanted to compare my two favorite brokers, both of which are part of these big 5-6 names.
In one corner, we have markets.com, that have become one of the abolsute top brokers in the world in a fairly short period of time, thanks to a really aggressive marketing strategy and a well thought out concept. They offer both forex trading, as well as binary trading through their sister site Top Option. The first thing you will probably notice when youv isit the markets.com website is that new traders are eligible to up to $2000 in bonus, which is easily one of the best offers out on the market today. The website looks very modern, and you sort of get this feeling when you visit them that “this is the real deal”. At least that’s what I thought when I was new to fore trading and I started to look into it. They have got a very fast and reliable trading platform combining the ever so popular MetaTrader platform with Sirix Web Trader as well as their own multi platform.
The other giant in the forex trading industry is Easy Forex, which has been around for a long time to build it’s reputation as the number one forex trading website in the world. One really good thing about Easy-Forex is that they accept players from the United States. What i’ve always liked about this broker is the fact that they have put a lot of effort in to building an education center, where new traders can learn the strategies and foundations that they need in order to expand their skillset. Easy Forex also offers new depositors a big 50% bonus when they make their first deposit at the website, meaning that you can actually save a lot of money by starting of with a large deposit.
All in all, I find it hard to choose a favorite among these two brokers. They’re both very well regarded in the industry, and they are probably pretty equal in all fields. I guess I would maybe recommend beginners to EasyForex as it has such a good educational centers. Experienced traders might gain from joining markets.com as they offer four different trading platforms which is a huge advantage for professional traders!
