How we ranked fees

We ranked Markets.com's fee levels as low, average or high based on how they compare to those of all reviewed brokers.

First, let's go over some basic terms related to broker fees. What you need to keep an eye on are trading fees and non-trading fees.

In the sections below, you will find the most relevant fees of Markets.com for each asset class. For example, in the case of forex and stock index trading the most important fees are spreads, commissions and financing rates.

We also compared Markets.com's fees with those of two similar brokers we selected, FXTM and FP Markets. This selection is based on objective factors such as products offered, client profile, fee structure, etc. See a more detailed rundown of Markets.com alternatives.

To have a clear overview of Markets.com, let's start with the trading fees.

Markets.com trading fees

Markets.com's trading fees are mixed. Forex fees are high, while CFD fees are rather average.

We know it's hard to compare trading fees for CFD brokers. So how did we approach the problem of making their fees clear and comparable? We compare brokers by calculating all the fees of a typical trade for selected products.

We selected popular instruments within each asset class:

  • Stock index CFDs: SPX and EUSTX50
  • Stock CFDs: Apple and Vodafone
  • Forex: EURUSD, GBPUSD, AUDUSD, EURCHF and EURGBP

A typical trade means buying a leveraged position, holding it for one week and then selling. For the volume, we chose a $2,000 position for the stock index and stock CFDs and $20,000 for the forex transactions. The leverage we used was:

  • 20:1 for stock index CFDs
  • 5:1 for stock CFDs
  • 30:1 for forex

These catch-all benchmark fees include spreads, commissions and financing costs for all brokers. Let's see the verdict for Markets.com fees.

CFD fees

Markets.com has generally average CFD trading fees.

Markets.com CFD fees for a $2,000 long position held for one week
  Markets.com FXTM FP Markets
S&P 500 index CFD fee $3.3 $1.7 $0.7
Europe 50 index CFD fee $2.2 $1.9 $1.6
Apple CFD fee $12.2 $29.5 $32.2
Vodafone CFD fee $40.3 - $30.6

Forex fees

Markets.com's forex fees are high.

Markets.com forex benchmark fees of a $20,000 30:1 long position held for one week
  Markets.com FXTM FP Markets
EURUSD benchmark fee $16.2 $8.3 $5.9
GBPUSD benchmark fee $17.1 $7.0 $4.1
AUDUSD benchmark fee $17.4 $7.0 $5.8
EURCHF benchmark fee $21.0 $5.5 $4.2
EURGBP benchmark fee $17.6 $9.8 $7.0

Real stock fees

Markets.com provides a real stock trading service through its Marketsi platform for European clients. It is available for anyone with a Real CFD account, but you have to register for it separately.

The fees are competitive for the first 3 months when trading is commission-free. After that, the fee structure below applies.

Stock fees are charged either as a volume-based or a per-share fee. However, there is always a minimum fee.

Markets.com real stock fees under Marketsi
Market Base fee Minimum fee
EU Shares (France, Germany, Spain) 0.1% €10
UK Shares 0.1% £8
US Shares $0.02 per share $15
AU Shares 0.1% AUD 10

In addition to the commissions above, when you trade stocks, an annual custody fee of 0.12% (maximum £10), a stamp duty and other extra taxes may also be charged. Be sure to check the Marketsi platform for more details.

Non-trading fees

Markets.com does a good job in general with non-trading fees as there are no account, deposit or withdrawal fees.

On the other hand, it does charge an inactivity fee of $10 per month already after 3 months of inactivity.

What is the minimum deposit at Markets.com?

The required minimum deposit at Markets.com is €/£/$100.

Account types

Markets.com does not offer separate account types. With a single registration, you'll have the option to try out a real and a demo account. After you've opened an account, both the Marketsx and Marketsi platforms are available. The first one can be used mostly for trading CFDs and forex, while the second platform is better suited for portfolio investments. In our review, we focus on Marketsx.

How to open your account

Account opening is very easy and fully digital. It took one day for our account to be approved.

Here are the steps of the Markets.com account opening process:

  1. Enter your personal and financial information.
  2. Indicate your trading experience and fill out a test about your financial knowledge.
  3. Verify your identity and residency. You can upload a national ID, passport or driver's license to verify your identity, while utility bills or bank statements are accepted for residency verification.

Account base currencies

At Markets.com, you can choose from 11 base currencies: USD, EUR, GBP, PLN, SEK, DKK, NOK, ZAR, CZK, CHF and AUD. If you're using the MetaTrader platform, you can select the following currencies: EUR, GBP, USD, AUD, CAD, JPY and PLN.

Base currencies at Markets.com vs similar brokers
  Markets.com FXTM FP Markets
Number of base currencies 11 4 10

Why does this matter? For two reasons. If you fund your account in the same currency as your bank account or you trade assets in the same currency as your account base currency, you don't have to pay a conversion fee.

A convenient way to save on currency conversion fees is by opening a multi-currency bank account at a digital bank. These offer bank accounts in several currencies with great currency exchange rates as well as free or cheap international bank transfers. Opening an account only takes a few minutes on your phone.

Look and feel

Markets.com's web trading platform is user-friendly and has a clean design. On the negative side, you cannot customize it to your personal preferences. You can, however, choose among various layouts, and you can also resize the windows, which is always a plus.

Markets.com review - Web trading platform

Login and security

Markets.com only provides one-step login. We missed a more secure, two-step authentication process.

Search functions

The platform's search functions are good. You will easily find what you're looking for and you will get relevant results for your search.

Markets.com review - Web trading platform - Search

Placing orders

While some more sophisticated order modes are missing, you can use the following basic order types:

  • Market
  • Limit
  • Stop

To get a better understanding of these terms, read this overview of order types.

Markets.com review - Web trading platform - Order panel

Alerts and notifications

We were impressed by the alert and notification functions on Marketsx. You can set up email and SMS notifications as well as price alerts. However, it's not possible to set a notification for order confirmations.

Portfolio and fee reports

Markets.com has clear portfolio reports that are easy to find under the 'My accounts' menu, where you can also download them. However, we missed a clear fee report where we could easily view swap charges.

Marketsi web platform

For its share-dealing and ETF service Marketsi, Markets.com uses Saxo Bank's TraderGO platform, but with some differences; for example, the 'Research' section is much more limited to basic news. Still, the charting tools and the overall feel of the platform make for a good user experience.

Look and feel

The Markets.com mobile trading platform shares a lot of similarities with the web platform. It looks nice and you can navigate it with ease. There is a smooth onboarding process when you first log in, and after a few minutes, you are good to go.

Markets.com review - Mobile trading platform

Login and security

Markets.com requires only one-step login for its mobile platform; having two-step authentication would provide an added layer of security. Also, you can't log in using biometric authentication. Providing this feature would make the login process more convenient.

Search functions

The search functions are good: when you start typing, you will immediately see all the available options.

Look and feel

Markets.com's desktop trading platform has great customizability. You can easily change the size and position of each tab.

However, the platform feels outdated, and some features are hard to find. For example, it took us a while to figure out how to add an asset to the watchlist.

Markets.com review - Desktop trading platform

Login and security

Markets.com provides only one-step login. Two-step authentication would be more secure.

Search functions

The platform's search functions are OK. You can find assets by browsing various category folders, although this is a bit confusing as there are several seemingly identical forex folders to choose from. We also missed the usual search function where you can type an asset's name manually.

Markets.com review - Desktop trading platform - Search

Placing orders

You can use some of the usual basic order types on the MetaTrader desktop platform. The following order types are available:

  • Market
  • Limit
  • Stop
  • Trailing Stop

Trailing Stop is available only in the MT4 desktop platform.

If you are not familiar with these order types, read this overview.

There are also order time limits you can use:

  • Good 'til canceled (GTC)
  • Good 'til time (GTT)

Alerts and notifications

You can set alerts and notifications in the form of e-mails, mobile push notifications, or notifications on the desktop platform itself.

To set email or mobile notifications, you have to add your email address and your mobile MetaQuotes ID (it can be found in MT4 app's settings). You can add them if you go to 'Tools' and then 'Options'.

Markets.com's product portfolio covers CFDs, forex and real stocks. However, some other popular asset classes such as ETFs, options or futures are not available.

Markets.com is primarily a CFD and forex broker. To learn more about CFDs, read our CFD trading tips.

Disclaimer: CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. 67% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs with this provider. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.

Markets.com provides a good range of CFDs, largely matching its immediate competitors. You can also trade quite a few cryptocurrencies.

The UK's Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) banned the sale of crypto derivatives to UK retail customers from January 2021. This means that crypto CFDs are not available for UK residents or at brokers regulated in the UK.

We were told by customer support that it's not possible change the default leverage of the products. This is a drawback, as we think that being able to change the leverage manually is a very useful feature when you want to lower the risk of your trade. Always be careful with forex and CFD trading, as preset leverage levels may be too high.

Markets.com also offers CFD Blends, which are basically combinations of several CFDs organized along themes like 'cryptoblend,' 'Brexit winners' or 'Brexit losers.' The composition of these CFD portfolios is fairly transparent, and you can also check their past performance. We really liked this function.

Real stocks

Real stocks are available only for clients onboarded under CySEC.

Pros Cons

Trading ideas

Markets.com provides trading ideas. These recommendations clearly state whether to buy or sell the asset in question, and also include target prices. However, no reasoning is provided for these recommendations.

You can also find stock recommendations from analysts. These are experts from top-tier banks such as JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch, etc. We liked that they are ranked based on their past forecasting performance.

You can also see what bloggers at Seeking Alpha or The Motley Fool write about some of the stocks available at Markets.com.

In addition, there's an Insider Trades Sentiment section where you can see how insiders - such as company management or other stakeholders - traded the stock in question.

In the Hedge Fund Sentiment section, you can see how leading fund managers have adjusted their positions over the previous quarter.

Pros Cons
Phone support No support on weekends
Live chat
Fast response time

You can contact Markets.com via:

  • live chat
  • phone
  • email
  • online query form

Markets.com's customer service was always quick, reliable and professional when we tested it. For example, when we asked about fees, they also brought up financing rates. You can rate your agent at the end of the conversation, which is a good way to provide feedback.

If you prefer queries over the phone, you can call a phone number appropriate for your region; you can find these phone numbers on the website.

  • EU: +357 2222 2121
  • AU: +61 280 144929
  • Other countries: +44 203 1500 380

On the negative side, customer service is only 24/5, meaning it is not available on weekends.

Safety

Markets.com is regulated by many authorities globally, including the top-tier FCA. It offers negative balance protection and has a solid background, but it has no banking license.
Pros Cons
Negative balance protection Does not hold a banking license
Regulated by the top-tier FCA
Parent company listed on LSE

Markets.com is the trading and investing arm of a group called Finalto, which in turn is owned by Playtech, a company listed on the London Stock Exchange.

Is Markets.com regulated?

Yes, it is regulated by several financial authorities:

  • the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the UK
  • the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) in Australia
  • the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) in Europe
  • the BVI Financial Services Commission (FSC) in the rest of the world

Is Markets.com safe?

To be certain if a brokerage is safe, we highly advise that you check two facts:

  • how you are protected if something goes wrong
  • what the background of the broker is

How you are protected

Markets.com operates several subsidiaries; which one of these will serve you will depend on your residence. The investor protection amount you are eligible for depends on the country of the subsidiary you are signing up with.

For example, if you reside in the UK, you will sign up with Finalto Trading Ltd and get investor protection for up to £85,000. Finalto Trading Ltd is regulated by the FCA, the UK regulator.

Markets.com investor protection
Country of clients Protection amount Regulator Legal entity
EU plus Switzerland, Norway and Iceland €20,000 Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) Safecap Investments Ltd
UK £85,000 Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) Finalto Trading Limited
Australia No protection Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) Finalto (Australia) Pty Ltd
Rest of the world No protection BVI Financial Services Commission (FSC) Finalto (BVI) Ltd

Markets.com provides negative balance protection for retail clients. This means your balance cannot go negative if you trade with leverage, which limits some of your risks.

Markets.com review - Regulation

Background

Markets.com's background is a bit complicated. Safecap Investments Limited operates Markets.com in Cyprus, while the other entities are operated by Finalto Group. Safecap Investments Limited is owned by Finalto Limited and is a subsidiary of Playtech PLC, a company traded on the London Stock Exchange. This is a good sign as companies listed on major exchanges need to be transparent.

Markets.com was established in 2008. The longer track record a broker has, the more proof we have that it has successfully survived previous financial crises.

The fact that Markets.com is regulated by at least one top-tier financial authority and offers negative balance protection are all good signs for its safety.

Find your safe broker

Markets.com review
Bottom line

Markets.com is a CFD broker regulated by several authorities globally, including the top-tier FCA in the UK and ASIC in Australia.

Account opening at Markets.com is seamless and fast; it has good research tools and great customer service; and it is regulated by multiple top-tier financial authorities.

On the negative side, forex trading fees are high, and product selection mostly covers only CFDs and forex. We also missed some important features on the trading platforms, such as two-step authentication, or price alerts on the web platform.

All in all, Markets.com may be a good choice for CFD and forex traders. As the account opening is super easy, feel free to try it.
