Capital.com was established in 2016, yet despite being a relative newcomer, already has well over 300,000 clients to its name. This must largely be thanks to providing its customers with the ability to trade many different CFDs or other derivative instruments. For example, Capital.com allows users to make trades on the derivatives of Forex pairs and commodities - to name just two.
Additionally, one of its main advantages is the fact that adheres to the regulations of the European Security and Markets Authority - giving customers huge comfort that their money is protected. That is not all, the company is also overseen by the much respected FCA and CySEC. Given the amount that can be lost, and how quickly, when trading CFDs and derivatives, this is hugely beneficial to both new and experienced traders.

For those that like their trading platforms sleek and professional, Capital.com will be a fantastic broker. The platform can be accessed through a mobile app or a web-based app, both of which are easy to use. Importantly, there is a wealth of information for customers to make use of when conducting investment research for their final investment decisions - but it is all well structured. The result is that users can read technical data without any difficulty. That being said, for the more experienced trader, the information available may be a little light and it could delve a bit deeper at times.
That being said, a huge benefit to this broker is its mobile app which allows customers to access all features of the web-based software. Additionally, for those that want to further their knowledge of investing and trading, there is another app available through Capital.com called Investmate. This too is intuitive to use.
Opening an account is not difficult with Capital.com - as to be expected from an online company. Customers can use a whole host of payment methods to set up their accounts. Traditional methods like credit and debit cards can be used in addition to a bank transfer. However, there are a number of Bitcoin type payment methods that can be used too. Accounts can be opened in the usual currencies - Euros, USD and GBP - as well as the unusual inclusion of the Zloty. Accounts have a minimum deposit of $100.
The trading hours and customer support at Capital.com are good. As many investors will require, access to the platform is possible all day every day. In terms of customer service, customers can use the phone or online chat to contact the company with any issues. There is also the option of using an enquiry form through the website too. However, in the main, the long and thorough list of Frequently Asked Questions should be able to answer any problems a user may have.
Capital.com is a solid choice for investors who want to access the CFD market. It is perhaps a little oversimplified when it comes to a few aspects on its platform, but the novice investor will find it easy to use. Making profitable trades is therefore that much easier. Finally, a big advantage to Capital.com is who it is regulated by. Having to be FCA and CySEC compliant - particularly when dealing with such complex financial instruments - is a massive bonus and a huge comfort to customers.
