French traders: let’s hear their opinion on the broker platform Markets.com
We interviewed the experts at one of the most important trading conference of the month.
We have already extensively discussed the famous broker platform Markets.com in previous posts, analyzing its functionality, strengths and weaknesses. We have decided to hear the opinions and experiences about the broker directly from French traders and, to do so, we participated to the VI Trading Conference held a week ago at the breathtaking and enchanting “Saint-Germain-des-Prés” district of Paris to hear last opinions about markets.com.
This two-day event aimed to bring together traders, fincial experts and sponsors sharing interests in broker platforms, forex and stock trading, financial management, financial markets, etc. It also provided a forum for presenting new trading tragedies as well as discussing current and challenging issues in financial management and related topics. We took the opportunity to ask questions and advices from the present speakers, taking advantage of the discussion moments of the proposed seminars. Here’s what emerged:
The safety first of all of Markets.com is much appreciated.
We remind that the broker is a trademark of “Safecap Investments Limited” and it’s regulated by CySEC, registered in the United Kingdom at the FSA (Financial Services Authority) and with the CONSOB (National Commission for Companies and the Stock Exchange). Since Markets.com is authorized to operate in the European Economic Area and needs to respect all the obligations that ensure a safe and secure trading experience, it is also registered with the French regulatory body Banque de France. This is a very important aspect that allows the broker to gain the trust of traders.
“It collects everything I need. Before using Markets.com, I compared different websites or platforms to find a result. Plus it has no commissions.” -Varden Daigneault, trader & financial expert
Markets.com has an extensive range of financial products and services, so it is able to provide everything needed for a successful trading experience under extremely competitive conditions. Low spreads, leverage up to 200: 1, analysis of on-demand markets also in French. No commission, no surprise. The fixed spread, although it may be higher than the floating spreads in favorable market conditions, allows to predict in advance the costs of its trading strategy and not to be faced with unexpected commissions or hidden costs.
“Customer support is an aspect that many platforms underestimate. Markets.com’s one is very efficient.”-Arthur Monrency, trader
Markets.com offers excellent customer support even in French. The assistants are always ready to solve the doubts of the trader and the communication takes place in a clear, simple and direct way.
“I think the decisive aspect of Markets.com, at least for me, is the use of different platforms. It’s useful.” -Victor Martel, trader
Within its trading platform, Markets.com offers traders 2 different types of platforms: Markets Web Trader, an online trading platform for accessibility 24 hours a day via the web, and Markets Mobile Trader, which allows access to financial markets directly from the smartphone.
All platforms made available by Markets.com have been developed internally and created to be user friendly and provide a personalized trading experience.
But the reviews with a more uncertain tone are not lacking.
“I think Markets.com is a suitable platform for inexperienced traders or for very experienced traders with high profits incoming. The intermediate account is not convenient for me.” -Orane Bourque, trader
To improve the online trading experience of its customers, Markets.com offers traders 3 different types of trading accounts as indicators:
- Classic trading account, with a minimum required deposit of $100, daily market analysis, Webinars and Video Tutorial;
- Standard trading account, whose minimum deposit required is $2,500 and has all the features of the classic trading account, with additions of Premium daily analysis;
- And the premium trading account, minimum deposit required: $20,000, all standard account features, 90% payments and Premium customer support.
Bitcoin on markets.com: is it worth investing?
Forex trading or CFD?
Bitcoin is actually the cryptocurrency with the biggest growth ever recorded in the financial markets: it has increased throughout 2017 reaching figures never seen before, with a maximum of $ 19,000.
Needless to say, Bitcoins are now one of the most attractive cryptocurrencies for traders, so different broker platforms specialized in their trading. Markets.com is one of these: it is a famous online trading broker known and loved by many traders, especially by those who want to trade with Bitcoins. The platform markets.com offers more than 50 currencies to invest with, but it also provides free real-time quotes and different types of charts, and it is also accessible on mobile devices or tablets. Obviously trading is available 24 hours a day.
But is investing in Bitcoins on Markets.com really worth it?
The answer is absolutely yes. Markets.com offers innovative investment opportunities in an easy and user-friendly platform.
Not only offers it a free demo account, but also real-time charts and different levels of difficulty, so as to encourage beginners and non-beginners.
But the true innovation of markets.com is the Trend Trader tool: the users of the platform have the opportunity to analyze and follow the trends of other traders.
In summary, you will have at your disposal:
- charts and live quotes;
- market analysis;
- a free demo account;
- a real account with a minimum deposit of just € 100;
- Trend Trader, the possibility to follow the trends of other traders.
How to start investing Bitcoin on markets.com?
There are two possibilities: you can invest by choosing to buy them directly (by creating a Bitcoin wallet) or you can proceed with CFDs, contracts for difference.
The second procedure is the most convenient, but implies the possession of an account on markets.com (we remind you that the minimum deposit required to open a real trading account is € 100).
CFDs are simple and inexpensive contracts that allows trader to trade on a wide range of financial instruments, investing on the difference in value of a specific financial title or underlying financial title that accrues from the date on which the contract is concluded to the date on which it ends.
CFDs permit bidirectional market operations: they allow long and short positions, allowing profits to be made even during down markets. Trading using CFD means, more simply, negotiating contracts on price differences: profits are earned or losses generated based on the difference between the purchase price and the selling price of the financial titles, multiplied by the number of CFDs on shares .
CFDs are a good alternative to traditional trading systems; clearly every trader has to individually weigh costs and benefits and to assess whether they can add it or not to their trading plans.
One thing is sure: with markets.com you will be advantaged in all your choices.

Financial leverage: Markets.com special offer
With many years of experience in the trading sector this broker can offer you low spreads(the best ones on the forex market), and a financial leverage of 1:50 with obvious terms and conditions. You should already know by now that financial leverage is always something very good, that can be also very bad. It allows to trade with more values and an inferior capital, contributing to obtain more profits, but if the trade is closed in a negative way you risk to lose the value of the traded volume. The risks that derive from using financial leverage are obviously not hidden by the broker. In fact in every single web page of the platform there is a call to use carefully leverage instruments because they can led to losing all the invested capital.
