Verified User Reviews

Our platform approaches user reviews very differently than all other platforms, labeling and giving greater weight to insights from verified trading account holders while limiting scores produced by unverified reviewers. By directly syncing with live trading accounts, we ensure the authenticity and relevance of each review. We actively poll for reviews from our database of global account holders, which helps us present a balanced view of broker performance, effectively countering the usual negative skew in some review systems. Additionally, every review undergoes thorough human moderation, while we employ many technical analyses to detect fraud and ensure the integrity of reviews.

Our position as the industry's top referrer of global client volume to many leading brokers gives us a deep understanding of FX/CFD broker nuances through a high volume of daily client-broker customer support team interactions and real-time data syncing from hundreds of thousands of accounts. We complement this unique insight with rigorous real money testing, ensuring our reviews are thorough and practical. This dual approach of extensive background knowledge and hands-on testing ensures that traders receive reliable, impartial guidance for making informed decisions. Our assessments are always unbiased and cannot be influenced by external partnerships. Brokers can never improve their ratings by paying us, period.

Ad Revenue Disclosure 

We earn commissions from some affiliate partners at no extra cost to users (partners are listed on our ‘About Us’ page in the ‘Partners’ section). Despite these affiliations, our content remains unbiased and independent. We generate revenue through banner advertising and affiliate partnerships, which do not influence our impartial reviews or content integrity. Our editorial and marketing teams operate independently, ensuring the accuracy and objectivity of our financial insights.

What You Should Know About High Risk Investments

Investing in assets such as stocks, bonds, cryptocurrencies, futures, options, and CFDs involves considerable risks. CFDs are especially risky with 74-89% of retail accounts losing money due to high leverage and complexity. Cryptocurrencies and options exhibit extreme volatility, while futures can also lead to significant losses. Even stocks and bonds can depreciate quickly during market downturns, and total loss can ensure if the issuing company fails. Furthermore, the stability of your broker matters; in case of bankruptcy, the presence of an effective investor compensation scheme is crucial for protecting your assets. It's vital to align these investments with your financial goals and if needed, consult with financial professionals to navigate complex financial markets.
