What we disliked about Admiral Markets

Admirals biggest weak point is their low effort CFD-Stock offer. Most CFD-stocks have a high comission and with a medium spread. Their second weakness is their lack of CFD-Futures for trades who want to save on swap fees. Admiral has a low percentage of successful traders compared to the market average.

CONS

Not many stocks available for trading

Not many CFD-Futures available

Below average amount of successful traders

No US Traders allowed

BrokerCheck Review of Admiral Markets

Admiral Markets shines with its above-average support & customer friendliness. The obligation to make additional contributions was not common even before the Bafin and EU Regulation. The trading costs for short trades are below average, but higher for longer hold times. The typical Dax spread is for example only 0.8 points. However, no index future variants are offered, which is why daily holding costs (swaps) would be incurred. The range of CFD’s for equities could be expanded even further. Admiral often offers bonus promotions such as spreadback or the permanent loyalty/bonus system. All in all, our Admiral Markets experience has been very positive and nothing negative has been reported to us so far. The trading software used is mainly based on the metatrader and is therefore similar to most CFD brokers. Admiral offers many cryptocurrencys with a low floating spread around 1%.
