In our Capex.com review, we liked the flexible trading tools the most. With internal and external tools like trading central, insiders’ hot stocks, daily analyst ratings, bloggers opinion as well as hedge fund activity traders are able to gauge the news sentiment quickly and efficiently. The best is that it’s available for free without any fixed fees. With over 2100 available trading assets Capex offers quite a broad range and especially – a lot of CFDs on stocks.
Newcomers can get in touch with their support team and even schedule one on one trading/trading sessions. With SMS notifications from Trading Central, the economic calendar and up-to-date blog posts, traders are always up to date to current and market-moving events.
In our Capex.com review, we disliked the different spreads on the CAPEX webtrader and metatrader 5 the most. It is a little confusing even for us to review the spreads as they are different depending on the platform. The spreads on the MT5 are cheaper than on the webtrader. The DAX spreads are e.g. 2,6 points on the webtrader, whereas the MT5 DAX spreads are only 1 point. Personally, we also dislike account tiers as its sole purpose is to get people to deposit more. The explanation is simply a trader with a higher deposit usually trades more volume. However, it is often a little unfair to the very small account traders.
Capex.com offers over 2100 different trading instruments. Which is slightly more than the average broker. CFD Futures on commodities are available as well.
At Capex, you can trade a variety of international markets such as index CFDs, stock CFDs, foreign exchange CFDs, commodity CFDs, precious metal CFDs, cryptocurrency CFDs as well as CFDs on Bonds, Blends and ETF.
Capex offers quite a large amount of stocks but also offers ETF and blends which are a specific mix of stocks (e.g. companies who research coronavirus vaccines could be bundled into one blend). This allows the trader to invest or trade-specific sectors regardless of company nationality.
Among the available instruments are:
Our Capex.com review is mixed (like with any nuanced review). Capex is still a “new” broker but has seemingly grown to serve over 10.000 active traders. They have a modern infrastructure, informative website and two trading platforms. Their standalone webtrader is suitable for traders who want to trade away from home and don’t want to use the MetaTrader 5. Confusingly both have different spreads, but the MT5 has cheaper conditions.
Meanwhile, their account tiers are negative in our eyes, as we dislike incentives to deposit more. Capex separates clients into three different accounts: Essential, Original, Signature and their min. deposit is $100. The spreads and swaps depend on the status of the account as well. Original and Signature traders get special conditions. Capex does not charge any trading commissions and gives a flat 0% commission promise.
The execution speed is less than 12 milliseconds on average. The execution type is market execution and STP (Straight Through Processing).
The trading assets offered cover a wide variety of international markets. Capex even offers exotic forex pairs with currencies such as the Hungarian Forint, Singapore Dollar, or South African Rand. They offer CFDs on the most popular cryptocurrencies only. CFD Futures with weekly/monthly rollover are available as well.
Capex offers quite a lot of supportive trading tools. Most notably trading central, insiders’ hot stocks, daily analyst ratings, bloggers opinion as well as hedge fund activity traders. SMS notifications from Trading Central and an economic calendar are accessible too.

Our Capex Review is mixed with many positives and a few negatives as well. Capex is suitable for beginners who want to trade stocks, ETFs and blends. With over 2000 stocks alone, they offer a big range of assets. Sadly the slightly confusing trading conditions may confuse one or another trader. Traders who want to try Capex should jump into the demo account first to check which trading platform is more suitable.
By regulation, every new client must go through some basic compliance checks to ensure that you understand the risks of trading and are admitted to trading. When you open an account, you will probably be asked for the following items, so it is good to have them handy: A scanned colour copy of your passport or national ID A utility bill or bank statement from the last six months with your address You will also need to answer a few basic compliance questions to confirm how much trading experience you have. It is therefore best to take at least 10 minutes to complete the account opening process. Although you can explore the demo account immediately, it is important to note that you cannot make any real trading transactions until you have passed compliance, which can take up to several days depending on your situation.
