easyMarkets Review & Author's Comment

Spreads are high but I like their vanilla options feature. When you are on a swing or medium term trade, I strongly recommend you to use different option strategies for hedging and lowering the risk in the case that you are on the wrong side of the market. They are headquartered in Cyprus but they have ASiC license as well.

I also like their negative balance protection feature which means you will never owe more than you deposited. People started to appreciate this feature a lot after EURCHF crash following the sudden removal of 1.20 peg by Swiss National Bank SNB. easyMarkets also offer different bonuses depending on the account type and where you reside.
