Pepperstone Broker Rating
  • Internationally regulated broker. Pepperstone is authorised and regulated by, among other supervisory bodies, the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) in the UK, CySEC (Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission), ASIC (Australian Securities and Investments Commission), DFSA, CMA and SCB.
  • At Pepperstone the minimum deposit is only $200 or equivalent in other currencies.

  • Multiple ways to deposit and withdraw funds, fast and free of charge.
  • Low spreads from 0 pips, no money desk and no conflicts of interest.

Our opinion about Pepperstone is positive. We consider it to be a reliable and regulated broker that offers a level of transparency far superior to most of its competitors. As a broker without a dealing desk, it acts only as an intermediary, which avoids possible conflicts of interest as can happen with other brokers that act as a counterparty to your trades. We think it is a good option for experienced traders because of the low spreads it offers, the MetaTrader 4, MetaTrader 5, cTrader and Trading View platforms, its fast order executionand the fact that it allows you to use any trading strategy without restrictions.

Our Rating( 4.7 / 5 )
eToro Broker Rating
  • eToro is the world leader in Social Trading: More than a broker, it is a complete social investment network where you can find, follow and copy the trades of the best traders and take advantage of their experience to make a profit.
  • Very popular broker with more than 15 million users from all over the world from more than 140 countries.

We believe eToro is a versatile and innovative broker. It is the world leader in social trading and you can use it to trade manually (for example in its extensive cryptocurrency or stock catalogue) or use its powerful, patented CopyTrader system to automatically copy other traders’ trades and take advantage of their knowledge to make a profit. At the same time, it is a regulated broker where client funds are segregated, insured and guarded by top-tier banks.


How to choose the best online broker?

Nowadays there are a large number of online brokers for trading and it is becoming increasingly difficult, especially for beginner traders, to find the differences between them and to know which broker is the best or how to choose the most suitable online broker for each case.

We have thoroughly tested and analysed a multitude of online Forex and CFD brokers to create the different comparison tables that you will find on our website. The factors that we consider to be the most decisive in choosing the best brokers are the following:

  • Reliability of the online broker: That it is a broker duly regulated by one or more rigorous bodies, that the company behind it is reliable and that our funds are safe, being able to deposit and withdraw them without problems.
  • Low entry requirements: We look for online brokers that ask for an affordable minimum initial deposit that allows you to start with little money. We also look for brokers that allow you to work with small trade sizes to keep risk under control, especially in the beginning.
  • Wide range of available instruments: A good broker should offer its clients a wide range of financial instruments on which to trade, such as the main currency pairs of the Forex market, cryptocurrencies, stocks, stock market indices, commodities, precious metals such as gold, energies such as oil,…
  • Intuitive trading platform: It is important that you feel comfortable with the trading platform that your broker offers you to analyse the market and execute your trades. A good platform should be complete but easy to use and understand for the user.
  • Support in your language: It is advisable that the broker you choose offers support in your language to quickly resolve any doubts you may have.
  • Free demo account: Any recommended broker should offer a free demo account that allows you to test its platform and trading conditions without putting your money at risk from the first moment. This is a great tool to learn how to trade online.
