The platform is brilliant, even for beginners, it is easy to understand and manage. The research is very helpful and the results are correct most of the time. The trading signals and analysis are very good, they are clear once the trader understands them with the help of their educational Webinars,
they encourage the trader to learn and gain confidence and it is free!

I spent a lot of money trying to learn to trade with other brokers and did not learn half as much as I have learned with ETX Capital within the last 8 months.

I use the MT4 platform and can honestly say that ETX have been my go-to spread bet company since opening my account. Although I only trade small positions quite infrequently it is important to know that the same level of service and reliability is available to each customer.

Trading Platform 4/5: I use MT4 which is an off the shelf product - it's main limitation is not being able to separate the charts onto different screens (they can only be opened on one screen).
Customer Service 5/5
Mobile Apps 4/5: sometimes i lose my currency pairs i have saved onto my phone app and i need to re-input them.
Spreads & Pricing 3/5: when prices are volatile around announcements the spreads blow out making it impossible to trade in the immediate aftermath post-announcement.
Market Range 5/5
Trade Execution Speed 5/5
Added Value 4/5: see above

when I first enlisted ETX the support staff were very friendly and helped me navigate the systems - if I had a problem they answered it very timely. My main issues are the MT4 platform and not being able to separate the charts, and the spreads blowing out (apart from EURUSD) immediately post-announcement.
