Within this review you will read my own standpoint from somebody that has been trading since 2004. With lots brokers to select from, its sometimes hard to make a decision on which firm to trade with. So instead of hearing a review from the company itself, which obviously will probably be bias, my view will be dependent on trading this account day-by-day. So lets give you some background first.
Markets.com is the trading name of Safecap Investments Limited- which is a Forex firm licensed and regulated under CYSEC. Markets.com is also registered with other regulatory firms which include FSA, BaFin, AFM, CNMV and CONSOB. Markets.com was recognized by the Middle-East Forex Expo and named 2010’s Fastest Growing Broker Award. Markets.com growth has been exponential, spreading to over 100 countries and 15 languages, mostly as a result of their efficient and transparent systems (we will get into this later).
Markets.com provides 5 distinct trading platforms:
Meta Trader 4
This is a trade platform which is used by a large percentage of specialized traders. So if you are new to investing or used other platforms before, this is a platform that is user friendly, gives you the opportunity to enter trades with one click, excellent features with regards to the markets, and technical analysis is endless. If you are into or looking to setup an Expert Advisor (EAs) that enables traders and programmers to tailor a solution suited towards your trading parameters.
Market Trader is an in depth FX and CFD platform which is web based. This software provides an easy to operate interface with a very similar one click trading option like MT4.

Well with this elite platform, you can view your positions using either, Market Mobile Trader, Market iTrader or Market Wap Trader. Demo accounts are offered to test out the platforms.
Accounts and Leverage
The smallest account size to open and trade with a mini account is $100. Typically, dependent on what their present advertising offers are, you will receive a welcome bonus of $50 (please see terms and conditions). In reference to a standard account, you would require to fund at least $2,500 (subject to changes). This account entitles you to view the “News to Mobile” service. Again you will receive a nice welcome bonus. Traders that deposit at least $20,000 will be able to gain access to the VIP benefits of Markets.com, which includes free FX signals via sms. Markets.com provides leverage up to 200:1. Although this is available, please be aware that by increasing the leverage you trade, with a small trading account, it is not recommended to long term trading success. The spread which Markets.com charge is very competitive. The exact pip levels will vary depending on the pairs you decide to trade.
