Why choose Trade Nation

Trade Nation is a UK CFD and forex broker. Its account opening is fully digital with no minimum deposit and free withdrawal. Customers have access to excellent research and education tools, while customer support is also great.

However, Trade Nation's product portfolio is slim. There is no live chat, only a chatbot. The desktop trading platform lacks safer login options.

BrokerChooser gave Trade Nation a 3.8/5 rating based on analyzing 600+ criteria and testing via opening a live account.

  • Free deposit and withdrawal
