What we disliked about Markets.com

Markets has slightly above spreads on many instruments. Confusingly there is a noticeable difference between the metatrader and webtrader cost structure. Also markets requires a minimum distance to the current instruments market price to fill in stop orders (like the stop loss).

CONS

Slightly above average spreads

Min. Gap for Orders (Stop Loss, Limit)

Different Cost structure on the metatrader / webtrader

BrokerCheck Review of Markets.com

Markets.com has a few advantages and, like any broker, has its weaknesses. Markets.com has slightly above-average spreads on the cost side (e.g. DAX 1.2 points), but also offers Futures. Several CFD contracts are offered on a futures roll over basis to keep holding costs low. The biggest advantage of Markets.com are by far the tradable stocks. Markets.com lives up to its name and offers an extremely wide selection. There are CFD stocks from over 12 countries and a large number of ETFs & at times up to 11 crypto currency pairs are offered. Negative is that Markets.com has a small minimum gap for stop loss or limit orders. For the beginner and advanced trader Markets offers webinars and some analysis tools. For example, stock trader insider activities of managers are tracked and processed or daily analyst comments are collected (unfortunately so far only in English). In summary, Markets.com is a good all-rounder for beginners and advanced traders.
