The deepest analysis of brokers online

Our research covers a variety of facets and areas. We look at everything from service efficiency, to platform latency and up time, trading tools available, platform and support languages available, withdrawal processing time, trading conditions and fees. For each one of these areas we give a point-scoring basis between 0-5. The higher the broker performs in this category, the higher the score they will receive. Once we have conducted all of the research into these areas, we calculate an overall score out of 100. The higher broker ranks, the higher they will appear on our broker-ranking list. We spend up to one week exploring a broker, its product and offering. After 3 months we go back to revisit the broker’s rating and conduct another intense look into the broker, that way we factor in changes that the broker has made.
