LYNX review summary

LYNX is a Dutch stockbroker established in 2006. LYNX's market and product range is great, giving you access to most stock exchanges a global investor might be interested in. Stock and ETF trading fees are low, and the research tools provided are great. LYNX deposit and withdrawal options are somewhat limited, as you can only use bank transfer. There is a hefty €3,000 minimum deposit, and the desktop trading platform is not particularly user-friendly. BrokerChooser gave LYNX a 4.1/5 rating based on analyzing 500+ criteria and testing via opening a live account.

You can't open an account at LYNX if you live in United States. See the best alternative available in your country.
