Brokers

Online trading has been accessible to retail traders since the late '90s. The number of online brokers has increased sharply in recent years and the choice of a brokerage company is a bit complicated. However, strong competition among brokers has significantly improved the trading conditions, spreads and services offered to investors.

Nowadays, you can invest in all financial markets with one click with just one trading platform. The forex and contracts for differences (CFDs) allow you to invest in currencies, commodities, oil, precious metals, stocks and stock market indices. Thanks to the leverage effect of margin accounts, the initial capital to open an account is not very high. However, this type of account is not without risk as leverage increases the potential for both profits AND losses.
