Their services are offered in a whole list of languages to eliminate language barrier and let not language hinder them from experiencing the benefit of trade investments. Let me show you how to use Markets.com and how it can guide you as you enter Forex trading.
Taking into the roots of Markets.com
SafeCap Investments Limited is originally registered under the name of Arbat Capital Limited and was founded in the year 2006. After 2009, it assumed its current name and standing as SafeCap Investments Limited after it gained its Forex operation’s regulatory approval in the year 2008. Its physical entity is headquartered in Cyprus. It is duly recognized and regulated by the Cypriot body, CySec, together with the Financial Services Board (FSB) and Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).

This is to ensure traders that their investments are protected and are secured up to a certain amount as directed by the regulatory policies.
The three Markets.com account types and their differences
As said, Markets.com offers different trading accounts which better serves their client’s preference and purpose. These accounts are the classic, standard and premium accounts which vary differently based on its minimum deposit and its inclusive services. Let’s take a closer look in each of the said services.
The classic account requires a minimum deposit of a hundred U.S. dollar ($100). This type of account is great for new traders and is highly recommended for those traders who take the least risks. The classic account is packed with features and services including daily analysis which is delivered to you every morning, both desktop and mobile platforms which are all user friendly, its video tutorials which helps greatly in improving one’s trading skills, its different webinars and seminars which are highly essential for your growth and development in investing and, most especially, its comprehensive customer service which is made available 24/7 to attend all your needs.
On the other hand, standard account is requiring trading investors to deposit a minimum amount of $2,500 which enclosed the basic service package of a classic account plus a dedicated account manager who helps you in your decision making, SMS news and signals which keeps you informed of the latest updates and a premium daily analysis which provides you with in-depth analysis.
The third type of account, the premium account, is there to provide you with the services enclosed in the standard account plus the availability of a premium customer services to answer your queries, anytime and anywhere. This kind of customer service allows you to experience a premium treatment and availability. However, the required minimum deposit for this type of account is higher compared to those two mentioned earlier. Its minimum deposit is $20,000.
Markets.com in comparison to other brokers: Platform and Leverage
Aside from its various account types, Markets.com’s advantage against other trading firms is its different platforms offered which are created and designed so that their clients could choose a wide range of platforms regardless of the kind of gadget and operating system being used. These include Markets Web Trader, Markets Mobile Trader, Sirix Web Trader, Meta Trader and Market MultiTerminal. The first two platforms are the most common because other trading firms are also using the same kind. However, the Sirix Web Trader is a non-propriety platform which you can freely install and use.
As a new trader, you can compare the two kinds of web platforms and decide which best suits for you. On the other hand, the MetaTrader 4 platform, although not the best among the list but somehow, is the most popular because it is the only downloadable version. But, if you are a kind of money-manager, the best platform you could use is the MetaTrader 4 MultiTerminal because it gives you access and manage different client accounts. So you see, these available platforms designed by Markets.com serve their clients based on their specific needs.
Leverage is also another great feature in Markets.com because it allows a leverage of up to 200:1. However, one need to consider that the more leverage there is in trading, the more risk one needs to look into.
Another advantage which Markets.com offers you is their practice demo account which you can use before you open a real account. You can use it either to gain enough understanding of Markets.com’s services or simply to understand what trading is all about.
How to fund your account
Markets.com offers the most flexible way to fund your account. Your account deposits can either be through credit or debit card transfers via Visa, MasterCard and Diners’ Club. At the same time, wire transfers and various local options are also considered upon discussion between the client and the firm for both deposits and withdrawals. Through this, traders will have an ample advantage to choose the easiest way for them to fund their accounts.
The best thing about Markets.com is that no additional charges are incurred during the processing of deposits and withdrawals of funds that exceeds $2,500. This is a guaranteed policy. At the same time, instant withdrawal of funds is one of its best offers.
Looking at the details laid in this review, Markets.com shows records of being in the business for less than ten years and is considered young compared to other brokerage firms out there. However, as a conclusion of this review, I can say that, despite its young years, Markets.com had embarked an impression of being strong and reliable in the heart of its loyal clients. This brokerage firm is, both, highly informational and educational in nature which is a good indicator that its managing body is always after the good of its valuable clients.
