How we ranked fees

We ranked FXTRADING.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.

  • Trading fees occur when you trade. These can be commissions, spreads, financing rates and conversion fees.
  • Non-trading fees include charges not directly related to trading, like withdrawal fees or inactivity fees.

In the sections below, you will find the most relevant fees of FXTRADING.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 FXTRADING.com’s fees with those of two similar brokers we selected, Fusion Markets and TMGM. This selection is based on objective factors such as products offered, client profile, fee structure, etc. See a more detailed rundown of FXTRADING.com alternatives.

To have a clear overview of FXTRADING.com, let’s start with its trading fees.

FXTRADING.com trading fees

FXTRADING.com trading fees are low. There are different cost structures for different account types. We tested the ‘Pro’ account.

We know it’s hard to compare trading fees for forex 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 chose popular instruments in each asset class usually provided by forex brokers:

  • Stock index CFDs: SPX and EUSTX50

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

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

These catch-all benchmark fees includes spreads, commissions and financing costs for all brokers. Let’s see the verdict for FXTRADING.com fees.

Forex fees

FXTRADING.com forex fees are low.

FXTRADING.com review

Account opening

The account opening process at FXTRADING.com is user-friendly and fully digital. It was also very quick, as our account was approved within a day.

Pros Cons
Fast High minimum deposit for Pro and Alpha accounts
Fully digital

74-89% of retail CFD accounts lose money

FXTRADING.com accepts clients from all over the world, with a few exceptions, such as the US and Japan.

What is the minimum deposit at FXTRADING.com?

The required FXTRADING.com minimum deposit is $200 for the Standard Account. However, Pro and Alpha accounts require higher minimum deposits, of $1,000 and $10,000, respectively.

Account types

FXTRADING.com offers three main account types: Standard, Pro and Alpha. These trading accounts differ in their pricing structure and the minimum deposit required.

How to open your account

The FXTRADING.com account opening process is easy and fully digital. The online application takes roughly 10-15 minutes, after which our account was verified within 1 business day.

The four steps of FXTRADING.com account opening:

  1. Provide some contact information, like your email address and mobile number.
  2. Fill out your personal information, like your date of birth and address. Verify your identity and residency by uploading a copy of your passport or ID, and a bank statement or utility bill. 
  3. Answer questions on whether you’re a US citizen or politically exposed person.
  4. Choose your account type, base currency, and preferred leverage.

FXTRADING.com review

Deposit and withdrawal

FXTRADING.com provides many deposit and withdrawal options, and most of them are free. On the other hand, it is not possible to open subaccounts in different currencies.

Pros Cons
Credit/debit card available for deposit Fixed subaccount currency
Deposits and withdrawals mostly free of charge

Account base currencies

At FXTRADING.com, you can choose from 7 account base currencies: AUD, EUR, HKD, USD, GBP, NZD and SGD. This selection is similar to the compared brokers.

Base currencies at FXTRADING.com vs similar brokers
FXTRADING.com Fusion Markets TMGM
Number of base currencies 7 8 6

One thing that we missed is the option to open subaccounts in different currencies. The subaccounts you open will automatically use the account currency you set during the account opening procedure.

Why does this matter? For two reasons. If you fund your trading account in the same currency as your bank account or you trade assets in the same currency as your trading 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 usually 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.

Deposit fees and options

Depositing funds at FXTRADING.com is free of charge. In addition to bank transfer, you can deposit funds in your account using credit/debit cards, and the following electronic wallets:

  • PayPal
  • Neteller
  • UnionPay
  • Poli
FXTRADING.com deposit options
FXTRADING.com Fusion Markets TMGM
Bank transfer Yes Yes Yes
Credit/debit card Yes Yes Yes
Electronic wallets Yes Yes Yes

A bank transfer can take several business days, while payment with a credit/debit card is instant.

You can only deposit money from accounts that are in your name.

FXTRADING.com withdrawal fees and options

FXTRADING.com charges no withdrawal fees in most cases. 

Unlike deposits, you can’t use credit/debit cards for withdrawal. However, bank transfer and electronic wallet withdrawals are available.

FXTRADING.com review

Web trading platform

FXTRADING.com’s web trading platform is highly customizable and has a clear fee report. However, the platform lacks price alerts and its design is outdated.

Pros Cons
Clear fee report No two-step (safer) login
Good customizability (for charts, workspace) No price alerts
Order confirmation Poor design
FXTRADING.com platforms to choose from
Trading platformScoreAvailable

FXTRADING.com doesn’t have its own self-developed trading platform, it offers three third-party platforms: MetaTrader 4, MetaTrader 5 and IRESS. On the IRESS platform, you can trade only share CFDs.

We reviewed MetaTrader 4 because it is the most widely used platform.

MetaTrader 4 is available in an exceptionally large number of languages.

FXTRADING.com available languages

Look and feel

The MetaTrader web trading platform has great customizability. It is easy to change the size and the position of the tabs.

However, the platform feels outdated and some features are hard to find. For example, it took some time until we found how to add an asset to the watchlist.

FXTRADING.com review – Web trading platform

Login and security

FXTRADING.com provides only a one-step login. A two-step authentication would be more secure.

Search functions

The search functions are OK. You can find the assets listed by category. However, we missed the usual search function where you can type in the asset’s name manually.

FXTRADING.com review – Web trading platform – Search

Placing orders 

You can use the basic order types, but you will not find very sophisticated orders like ‘one-cancels-the-other.’ The following order types are available:

  • Market
  • Limit / Stop
  • Stop-loss / Take profit

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

There are also order time limits you can use:

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

FXTRADING.com review – Web trading platform – Order panel

Alerts and notifications

You can’t set alerts and notifications on the MetaTrader web trading platform of FXTRADING.com. This feature is available on the mobile and desktop trading platforms.

Portfolio and fee reports

FXTRADING.com has clear portfolio and fee reports available on MT4. You can easily see your profit-loss balance and the commissions you paid. These reports can be found under the ‘History’ tab.

FXTRADING.com review

Mobile trading platform

FXTRADING.com has a great mobile trading platform, provided by MetaTrader 4. It is well-designed and user-friendly, but lacks a more secure login.

Pros Cons
User-friendly No two-step (safer) login
Good search function No Touch/Face ID login
Price alerts

Similarly to the web trading platform, FXTRADING.com offers third-party trading platforms: MT4, MT5 and IRESS mobile. We tested MetaTrader 4 due to its high popularity.

MetaTrader 4 is available for both iOS and Android, and we tested it on both.

After you download the MT4 mobile trading platform, you have to access the FXTRADING.com-Live server.

Just like on the web trading platform, you can choose from many languages on the mobile trading platform. Changing the language is a bit tricky on Android devices, though; you can do it only if you change the default language of your mobile.

FXTRADING.com available languages
ArabicChinese (Simplified)Chinese (Traditional)CzechEnglish
Portuguese (Brazil)RussianSpanishThaiTurkish

Look and feel

FXTRADING.com has a great mobile trading platform in MT4, we really liked its design and user-friendliness. You will easily find every feature.

FXTRADING.com review – Mobile trading platform

Login and security

Similarly to the web trading platform, the app provides only a one-step login. A two-step login would be more secure.

You can’t use fingerprint or Face ID authentication. Providing this feature would be more convenient.

Search functions

The search functions are good. You can search by typing the name of the product or by navigating the category folders.

FXTRADING.com review – Mobile trading platform – Search

Placing orders

You can use the same order types and order time limits as on the web trading platform.

FXTRADING.com review – Mobile trading platform – Order panel

Alerts and notifications

You can set alerts and notifications for your mobile, although you can do it only on the desktop trading platform. It would be much easier if you could set these notifications on the mobile trading platform itself as well.

FXTRADING.com review

Desktop trading platform

In design and functionality, FXTRADING.com’s MetaTrader 4 desktop platform is almost the same as the web trading platform. One major difference is that you can set price alerts.

Pros Cons
Clear fee report No two-step (safer) login
Good customizability (for charts, workspace) Poor design
Price alerts

We looked at the MetaTrader 4 desktop trading platform, as offered by FXTRADING.com.

It has the same design, languages, order types (with the addition of trailing stop), same search functions, and portfolio and fee reports as the web trading platform. These reports can be found under the ‘Account History’ tab: right-click on a position, then choose ‘Save as Detailed Report’.

One major difference is that you can set alerts and notifications in the form of mobile push or email notifications on the desktop trading platform. To set email or mobile notifications, you have to add your email address and mobile MetaQuotes ID (you can find it in the MT4 app’s settings). You can add them if you go to ‘Tools’ and then ‘Options’.

FXTRADING.com review

Markets and products

FXTRADING.com offers only forex and CFDs on commodities, indices and cryptos for trading. Share CFDs are available only with IRESS accounts. This means that many popular asset classes, like real stocks and ETFs, are not available.

FXTRADING.com is primarily a forex broker, but it also provides some CFDs for trading. To learn more about CFDs please read our CFD trading tips.

Disclaimer: CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. 74-89% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.

FXTRADING.com’s stock CFD selection is very extensive, while forex and other CFD product offerings are mostly average. Share CFDs are only available with IRESS accounts.

You can change leverage levels at FXTRADING.com, which is great.


Changing the leverage is a very useful feature when you want to lower the risk of your trade. Be careful with forex and CFD trading, as preset leverage levels may be too high.

FXTRADING.com review


FXTRADING.com has OK research tools, including some trading ideas and a quality news feed. However, there is no fundamental data and only limited analytic tools.

Pros Cons

FXTRADING.com has research tools available in various different places, including the MetaTrader platform, the Client Portal, and the FXTRADING.com website. It would be easier if you could access all of these tools from one place.

FXTRADING.com provides trading ideas for forex, commodities, indices and cryptos. These trading ideas are based on technical tools and chart pattern recognition. You can access them if you log in to the Client Portal and click on ‘Trading Tools’.

Customer service

FXTRADING.com’s customer service is great across the board, so you’ll be in good hands with your broker-related questions. On the negative side, support is not available 24/7.

Pros Cons
Phone support No 24/7 support
Live chat
Fast response time

You can contact FXTRADING.com via:

  • live chat

FXtrading.com has great live chat support. It is fast and we always received relevant responses.

Phone support was helpful and we received OK answers.

Email support is quick and helpful. We sent three emails and got useful and relevant answers for all of them within a day.

However, we missed the availability of 24/7 support. We also found that customer support is not 24/5 despite what is stated on the website. Based on information received from the support team, agents are online only during working hours, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. AEST.

FXTRADING.com review


FXTRADING.com is regulated by the top-tier ASIC and offers negative balance protection. However, there is no investor protection and the company does not hold a banking license.

Pros Cons
Regulated by the top-tier ASIC No investor protection
Negative balance protection Does not hold a banking license
Not listed on stock exchange

Is FXTRADING.com regulated?

Yes, it is regulated by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) and the Vanuatu Financial Services Commission (VFSC).

Is FXTRADING.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

FXTRADING.com operates through two legal entities that are regulated by different financial authorities. 

FXTRADING.com investor protection
Country of clientsProtection amountRegulatorLegal entity
AustraliaNo protectionAustralian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC)Gleneagle Securities (Aust) Pty Ltd
All other countriesNo protectionVanuatu Financial Services Commission (VFSC)Gleneagle Securities Pty Ltd

FXTRADING.com provides negative balance protection. If the balance on your account goes into negative, you will be protected.


FXTRADING.com is a trading name of Australian financial services provider Gleneagle Securities Pty Ltd, which was established in 2014. The longer track record a broker has, the more proof we have that it has successfully survived previous financial crises.

Note that FXTRADING.com doesn’t have a banking background, doesn’t disclose its financial reports and is not listed on any stock exchange.

FXTRADING.com review

Bottom line

FXTRADING:com is an Australian forex and CFD broker.

FXTRADING.com’s forex fees are low and account opening is fast and easy. Deposits and withdrawals are free of charge.

On the other hand, the product portfolio covers only forex and CFDs. Clients are not covered by any investor protection and we missed some research tools, like an economic calendar.

Feel free to try FXTRADING.com as you can try the service through a demo account and enjoy the favorable forex fees.
