Platform

easyMarkets has taken a multi-pronged approach to its trading platform - in an astute effort to make it as appealing as possible to many different types of trading. As a result, it does have its own platform through a web-based or mobile app and a MetaTrader4 platform. For that reason, traders who have used MetaTrader4 before and want to make use of easyMarkets’ product offering and market access, will be able to hit the ground running.

For those that want something a little more straightforward, easyMarket’s own platform is sleek and simple to use. Some may argue this is at the expense of detail that may be required for more complex trades. Finally, its mobile app is good for trading on the go. It is similar to the company’s online platform, though users can also access its MetaTrader4 software through the mobile app too.

Opening An Account

Customers can open an account with a minimum deposit of £100 for a standard account. There are several account types. For European clients, easyMarkets provides its VIP accounts. For customers outside of Europe, they have access to the Standard, Premium and VIP accounts. While this bureaucracy is a little convoluted, it is down to outside regulatory restrictions imposed by authorities with respect to the leverage that can be offered. However, the VIP account must be opened with £2,500 as a minimum. A premium account must have an opening amount of £1000.
