Investing with eToro

Hello everyone,
So I’ve just started investing on ETFs with eToro. I plan to invest every month a fixed amount on some European based ETFs (iShares mostly).
After reading some posts on this sub I see that people dare saying that I don’t actually own the stocks and if eToro files bankruptcy I can lose everything.
Nonetheless, I read this eToro clarification . Is this only for stocks or also ETF’s ?
Could someone please explain ?
Best regards

Is eToro really free? Why not do passive long term investing with it?

I invest a large-ish portfolio passively and globally, 60% stocks and 40% bonds, via Vanguard and BlackRock products and using iWeb as a broker. Not at all interested in active trading, commodities, currencies, crypto, CFDs, none of the, ah, cool stuff for me.
I happened to read eToro's website, and was surprised to see they're saying they have absolutely zero fees on stock and ETFs. I... that surprised me. Am I missing some small print? Why not trade with them? Why aren't they on the Monevator list of brokers?

Is there an online broker with fully automatic monthly investments to ETF for an EU client with an EU domicile? (e.g. like ETF saving plan)

This is a followup up to the older post: https://www.reddit.com/EuropeFIRE/comments/e307hu/is_there_a_broker_which_provides_monthly/
Is there an online broker with fully automatic monthly investments to ETF for an EU client with an EU domicile? (e.g. like ETF saving plan)
By automatic investment I mean every month a fixed amount of euros would be sent from my SEPA bank account (by a standing order) to my brokerage account. This money would be than automatically invested in the one ETF which I select (for example Vanguard FTSE All-World UCITS ETF Accumulating ISIN IE00BK5BQT80 )
EDIT:
So far as the best option what I found is:
Trading212 with their Autoinvest feature
https://helpcentre.trading212.com/hc/en-us/articles/360009313957-Pies-AutoInvest-Introduction
As far as I read the internet, there are no fees or higher spreads for "investment" type of account. They make money from their CFD clients and to get CFD clients they are using zero commision trading as promotion.
Scalable Capital with their FREE BROKER
https://de.scalable.capital/trading
0.99€ per trade, so for my case 12 months/trades would be 11.88€ in total per year.
Please do you know about some better options?
Or do you have experience with Trading212 or Scalable Capital?

Can someone who trades stocks on the London Stock Exchange and uses IB please explain to me why many of the securities trading on SETSqx are not tradeable via IB?

Also, some securities on SETSqx which are tradeable on IB, appear to be tradeable only during 3 10-min auction call periods a day, while the LSE website reports regular trading for those same securities outside of the auction call periods and provides volume and prices outside of those auction call periods too.
What other DMA broker offers access to all tradeable securities on LSE, with no exclusion. Is a list of securities tradeable on LSE via Tradestation available, for example?
N.B.: I am not interested in recommendations for services offering CFDs on stocks, so please do not comment if you cannot answer my question.

UK Guide to US Options Trading

This is guide to US options trading from the UK, because I've seen countless requests of people browsing in /ukinvesting, /options, /wallstreetbets etc. about this.
First thing's first - no part of this post is to be taken as financial advice. It is a guide on how to start options trading from the UK. Options/CFD trading is a high-risk activity and most retail traders lose money.

1. CFDs vs. Options

So getting started, options and contracts for difference (CFDs) are both financial derivatives - they derive their values from an underlying security e.g. stock, indices, currency, commodities. Long story short, CFDs do not have an expiration and options do; and at the option expiration date, options give the opportunity to buy/sell the underlying (e.g. stock) at the agreed strike price. CFDs are highly directional (delta) trades where positions require ongoing financing fees by a broker, whereas options strategies allow the trader to trade time decay (theta) as well as market volatility (vega). Options provide greater flexibility in trading strategies (time/volatility trading as well as direction); however, due to this, the more complex strategies can be difficult to understand.
Spread betting allows a literal directional bet of an underlying by a certain date. It is most similar naked options - i.e. if your position moves against you enough, your broker may forcibly close your position unfavourably and/or margin call you for extra cash ("you can lose more than your initial deposit"). With options/CFDs, you can define risk by specifying a profitability range (spreads) instead to avoid this scenario. Due to spread betting being so close to gambling, it is treated as such in the UK in terms of taxation - gains are tax free. I will also add here that CFDs/options can also be used in this manner (gambling, with subsequent margin calls etc.), and that CFD brokers tend to understate the risks of these strategies, whilst almost all options brokers require elevated permissions to seek out this level of risk - this is because blowing through margin presents a risk to the broker and they would rather have commissions without the risks of the brokerage going bust. The lowest level of permissions still allows you to buy extremely highly leveraged OTM options without margin, as your max loss is limited to the amount you paid for those options.

2. Brokers

Given that options effectively open up two additional aspects of trading (time/volatility) and require additional regulatory oversight compared to CFDs/spreadbetting, there is basically no options market in the UK - the only brokers at this time are IG/Saxo, and they only do vanilla options on Forex/Indices/Commodities. Everyone else only does CFDs and/or stock (T212, Freetrade, IG, Plus500 etc.). To engage in true stock options trading, the only choice is to open an international/US brokerage account.
The two that are accessible to UK investors are Interactive Brokers (IB) and TastyWorks. Both are reputable brokers and have strong insurances for cash & securities held with them.

3. Opening an account

I will walk through some of the aspects of funding and operating a TastyWorks account from the UK, as this is my recommendation if you're here looking for a cheap way to get started.
Opening a free account on TastyWorks is easy as they are used to foreign traders (form filling within 20-60 mins - you will need a photo of proof of ID and address). It typically takes 1 day for cash accounts and 2-3 days for margin accounts to be ready for funding. My referral link if you feel this guide deserves the effort is: https://start.tastyworks.com/#/login?referralCode=GD9EGGNZYZ. (mods, happy to remove this is this guide is deemed low effort)
The account types are:

4. Funding the Account

Since trading US options is done in USD, the account must be funded in USD. As international traders, deposits must be "By Wire", assuming you do not have a US bank account - full instructions for the "By Wire" method will show up when you are approved to fund your account. With TastyWorks, UK traders have 3 options at time of writing, going from highest to lowest fee:
1) Starling Bank: ~1% commission (+flat fee TBC?)
2) CurrencyFair: typical ~0.75% commission +$20 flat fee
3) TransferWise/Revolut + UK USD Account: ~0.5% commission +$20 flat fee
TastyWorks does not accept third party transfers (accounts not in your name), so services such as Revolut and TransferWise (inc. borderless) do not work directly
4.1 Starling Bank
With Starling Bank, you can do an international wire from a GBP account directly. Easy online bank setup and probably fastest way to get started, especially if you already bank with them. Note: Starling Bank is rejecting transfers to TastyWorks 'as it sits out of our international payment provider's risk appetite' (as of 11th May) - waiting for updates
Note that other routes include a $20 flat fee charged by intermediate banks before the transfer reaches TastyWorks. Haven't got confirmation that this route is charged or if Starling includes it within their higher fee.
4.2 CurrencyFair
TastyWorks have approved transfers via CurrencyFair with a guide at: https://support.tastyworks.com/support/solutions/articles/43000435321-can-i-use-currencyfair-to-fund-my-account-
Easy to get started, but a couple hoops to jump through to confirm your transaction to TastyWorks via email.
Note that the $20 flat fee is for an intermediary bank to take their cut between CF and TastyWorks, but that is not mentioned on the CurrencyFair website.
4.3 USD account + TransferWise/Revolut
The cheapest option is to set up a USD currency account and transfer through that.
The account of choice is the Barclays USD Foreign Currency account - you need a current account with them to be able to open the USD account. HSBC also have an offering, but not had this route confirmed.
Once the USD account is open, you can transfer into it using Revolut/TransferWise (cheap) and then international (wire) transfer from Barclays account to TastyWorks (free!). Note that the Barclays USD account is still a UK bank account, so you'll need to use a SWIFT transfer from Revolut/TransferWise to turn your GBP into USD.
Note that the $20 flat fee is for an intermediary bank to take their cut between Barclays and TastyWorks, but that is not mentioned on the Barclays website.
4.4 Withdrawals
To withdraw funds, do the opposite for a deposit, noting that $45 will be charged by TastyWorks per withdrawal.

5. Getting Started

I highly, highly recommend TastyWork's education centre and their TastyTrade videos, especially if you are new to this.
Otherwise, once funded, it's as simple as downloading the app on mobile, using the browser trading screen, or downloading their full desktop platform.
That's it for the guide - happy trading, and if there are any questions, feel free to get in touch and I'll edit the answers in here. I want this to be a resource because I've helped many people get started, and it would be good to have it all in one place!

Plus500 (LON:PLUS) – a good hedge against the return of volatility

As volatility is set to return to the market, Plus500, with a current beta of -0.33, could be a logically-sound hedge against board market risk whilst adding capital gain potential as well as diversification benefit to the total portfolio, as it has already shown over the past few months.
Why (and What is) Plus500
The first time I came across with Plus500 (LON:PLUS) was during a UEFA Champions League game (European soccer competition) between Atletico Madrid and Barcelona that I watched a few years ago where they were (and still are) the jersey sponsor for Atletico Madrid (a top Spanish soccer club for anyone who doesn’t follow soccer). From their brand name it was hard for me me to figure out what Plus500 does, which I later found out that not only they are a one of the largest online trading platforms in Europe for CFD, spread betting and other financial assets (including cryptocurrency), but also a listed company on London Stock Exchange. And then it all made sense to me why Plus500 would choose to advertise their services through a soccer club: there are many commonalities between both soccer fields and financial markets: the ever-changing situations, the fast pace dynamics, and large volume of boisterous spectators that are ever-present.


Plus500 is an international financial firm providing online trading services in contracts for difference (CFDs), across more than 2,000 securities and multiple asset classes.
Heightened market volatility (again) could further boosted Plus500's growth
Ever-changing situations, fast-paced dynamics and large volume of boisterous spectators are indeed what characterised the global financial markets in the first half of 2020. Following the surprising V-shaped recovery from the market bottom in late March, Stocks retreated over the past few weeks as the global markets are gearing up toward another period of heightened volatility. The VIX index had a noticeable pick up over recent weeks (see charts below) as more and more confirmed COVID-19 cased were being reported following the ease of the lockdowns as well as recent protests both in the US and aboard. In addition to a looming second wave of COVID-19, there are several other potential risk factors, such as Trade conflicts between US and Europe and the upcoming Presidential election, which could significantly influence investor’s confidence over the stock markets and stimulate more tug of wars between the bulls and the bears of the markets on a day-to-day basis.

VIX index - Risk is gradually returning
Source: Refinitiv Eikon
Uncertainty triggers volatility, and Plus500 is certainly one of the a few companies that make money from this directly. The stock has performed very strongly this year (+52% YTD) relative to the board UK stock market (FTSE down by 18.3% YTD) thanks to the record level of trading activities by its customers. It also added more than 82,000 and 100,000 new customers in Q1 and Q2 respectively which exceeded their expectations for both quarters.

Plus500 stock price since 2018
Source: Refinitiv Eikon
There are other reasons to stay optimistic about the stocks: Plus500’s business operation is reasonably well diversified in terms of geographical location (see chart below). It’s also fairly cash rich for company of its size. Plus500 has a negative net debt of over $287 million in the current financial year and a projected free cash flow yield of 31.6% in 2021, which means they are unlikely to face any potentially significant liquidity concerns which often can cause businesses to go bankrupt (such as the position Wirecard find themselves in this week). Furthermore, Plus500’s shareholder returns policy is to return at least 60% of net profits to shareholders, through a combination of dividends and share buybacks, with at least 50% of this distribution being made by way of dividends. Its current dividend yield of 4% p.a. will be particularly appealing to incoming seeking investors.

Source: Refinitiv Eikon

Plus500 stock profile
Source: Genuine Impact
Another Wirecard situation?
Ultimately the stock’s future price momentum will dependent upon the sustainability of the market volatility as well as uncertainties in regulatory landscapes. As showed in the chart earlier Plus500’s business operation spreads over several jurisdictions and they are authorised and regulated by the market regulators in the UK, Cyprus, Australia, Singapore and Israel, which means that any change and update in regulatory framework concerning CFDs or other financial instruments will likely to significantly affect Plus500’s business operation and influence market expectations on their future revenue and growth. Rewinding the clock to February 2019 its stock price more than halved over a two-week period, when the Australian market regulator announced restrictions in CFD trading rules which adversely affected Plus500’s profitability. Similar regulatory uncertainties in the future could easily cause its stock profit to slump. It’s also worth noting that Plus500 also had its fair share of accounting controversy in the past. One incident was that in its 2017 Annual Report, Plus500 announced that they did not generate net revenues or losses from market P&L in 2017. However in February 2019 the company issued a contradictory report stating that it had incurred a $103 million loss from client trading activity in the 2017 financial year, causing investors to cast doubts over the credibility of their published financials and their stock prices to plummet. Investors and regulators are likely to be more sensitive and aggressive than ever toward these kind of accounting irregularities for any public company after the Wirecard case.

Analysts upgraded their 2021 and 2022 revenue projections
Source: Refinitiv Eikon
Agree to disagree
The market seems to hold a slip view on the stock. As a matter of fact the four broker analysts that provide research coverage on Plus500 cannot have a less divided opinion on its outlook which is reflected in the ratings they give out (one strong buy, one hold, one sell and one strong sell) and range of target prices they’ve set (£6.65 - £21.38, current price at £13.01). However, over the past few months there appears to be a consensus amongst these analysts on the stock’s future growth momentum as they all lifted their 2021 and 2022 revenue projection for Plus500 (see chart above), thanks to the increasing trading volume and customer growth over the past few months. Their average revenue projections for 2021 was $365 million back in March 2020, and has now been lifted to $574 million for the same period, representing a 57% increase (roughly in line with the stock's YTD performance).
This upward momentum is likely to continue if volatility resumes in the coming weeks. Like their competitors in the sector, Plus500’s financial performance this year will be dependent, among other things, on the global financial market conditions providing sufficient trading opportunities for customers.
Thanks for reading my post and I appreciate any feedback and comments! Stay safe and all the best with your investments.

[Austria] The one broker choice thread to finish them all

Servus to all personal finance gurus - I just wanted to ask for your advice and open a bit of a discussion regarding best brokers available in Austria for different uses. I am breaking this post down into three main parts - best brokers for ETFs, casual long-term investment into stocks and day trading. In the future, I personally anticipate all three uses for myself, with a money distribution of something like 65/30/5 percent.
For each of the uses, I am listing the main priorities I have identified and the broker of choice - however, this list is by no means final, and I would very much like to listen to your thoughts and considerations on the matter!
1. ETF broker (looking to invest consistently in S&P + EM, as well as time-to-time into thematic ETFs such as AI, Machine learning etc.) - Flatex
What I prioritise:
Other existing options: conventional banks like Erste (too expensive), Trade Republic (has a Sparplan, still not open in Austria, not steuereinfach), DADAT/Hello Bank (too few ETFs to choose from)

2. Long-term stock portfolio broker (to invest consistently in a portfolio of 10-15 companies for a long term, with sums under 1000EUR pro transaction) - Degiro or Trading 212? Both non-steuereinfach, both low-cost (T212 is no-commission) - which would you recommend and why? (or maybe even Flatex?)
What I prioritise:
Other existing options: Flatex (steuereinfach, but expensive (up to 5,90 per trade)), Revolut (using it currently, but the spreads seem bad, there are no limit orders etc., there are reports of users getting locked out for weeks, as well as reports of app malfunctioning when trading volumes go up), Interactive Brokers (Inactivity fees).

3. Day-trading or option broker (looking to have some fun with trading on short term-basis, ready to lose the entire deposit for the sake of learning) - Trading 212
What I prioritise:
Other existing options: Flatex (steuereinfach and has a day trader flat fee account), Interactive brokers (seems very 1990s from their website), Degiro (almost the same as T212, seems to have a more limited CFD/options array, short position and leverage fees are higher)
  1. Bonus level - Crypto trading (never tried yet, may be up for some signal-based day trading + a small speculative investments portfolio) - Binance. Priorities: a secure platform + low fees.

I would be incredibly grateful for any analysis / critique of the above - and let’s together make the definitive list that all our Austrian co-redditors could use!

Currency hedging with CFDs

Hello! I tried to post my question @ investing, but the comment didn't gain any traction, so I try here.
I'm thinking about hedging currency risk of my portfolio. I plan to buy ETFs quoted in EUR and in USD, but I currently earn in a different currency. I'm using Interactive Brokers account.
First I wanted to use CME FX Futures, but they seem to be overcomplicated as you have to buy them in full lots. That's where FX CFDs came to my mind.
Do you have any experience with them? I read about trading FX CFDs in IB, but some thing are still a bit unclear to me.

Invest Option from Bulgaria?

Hi, I noticed that the INVEST account is in the product lists for many EU countries but not Bulgaria. Only CFDs are show on the Bulgarian localisation of the website.
Do I understand correctly that standard ETF/Stock holding is not available in the country?

As a bonus question: Which is the third party broker that is partnering with Trading 212. E.g. stock trading for Revolut is powered by DriveWealth.

Belangrijk

Ik kreeg net volgend bericht van mijn broker:
Dear Traders,
Financial authorities in France provided a clarification to financial market participants that the national prohibition of short-selling also pertains to equity index products.
Therefore, the CAC40 index CFDs (both cash and index futures-based contracts) are now trading in long-only mode until April 17th, 2020.
Here is the summary list of instruments that have been set to long-only trading modes:
When instruments are in long-only mode, we can only accept trades that will realise in a decrease of your net short ("sell") position, or in an increase (also in the creation of entirely new) of your buying position in this instrument.
We note that applied restrictions may be extended for a period that is deemed necessary by regulators to ensure the stability and orderly functioning of financial markets.

maw, bij een eventuele pull-back, is het niet meer mogelijk om noch short te gaan, noch te verkopen. Niet dat dit mijn strategie is, maar volgens mij wel belangrijk om te weten.

Price Comparison For Every Online Broker In Australia

There are a lot of posts on this sub asking for online broker recommendations.
I’ve commented on a few of these posts suggesting that if you’re not doing any exotic or exciting trading, brokers are essentially commodities that all offer the same (or a very similar) service.
If you think that’s true, the main thing you should consider when choosing a broker is the cost.
But because of the tiered pricing structure of many brokers, it becomes difficult to make recommendations without knowing the average trade size of an individual.
Realizing this I did an analysis of brokerage based on trade size. (Green is cheap. Red is expensive.)
There are two things wrong with this:
  1. It doesn’t tell you who the cheapest broker is (because the colours are vague)
  2. I did this some time ago and new brokers have started since
I wanted to make a better, more permanent solution.
So I created a website called TradeCost.io
On this site you can enter any trade size you want up to $1,000,000 (the default is $1,000).
Based on the trade size you enter, the brokerage fee for each online broker is calculated and the table rearranges to order them from least to most expensive:
Example of table sorting
If you need extra features or you’re trying to choose between two brokers I’ve provided some standard information about each broker including:
Example of info popup
Some of the cheaper brokers require you to meet specific criteria to access better pricing, so make sure you check those details in the ‘Fee structure’ info.
A perfect example of this is Saxo who offer ‘Classic’, ‘Platinum’, and ‘VIP’ with each of these tiers available as either participant-sponsored (CHESS) or issuer-sponsored (Custodian):
I tried to be fair by including every broker I could find.
Some brokers who would otherwise be on the list have been excluded because when I called them they weren’t really interested in taking clients who only wanted to trade shares. These were mainly CFD and FX brokers that offer share trading as an additional service to their clients.
If you think I’ve missed a broker or if any of the info on a broker is incorrect, please let me know. I tried to be thorough and called each broker to confirm the additional information so hopefully there aren’t too many issues.
I hope people enjoy the site and it helps you out.
I’m all ears on ways it can be improved so please provide feedback in the comments :)
Just as a heads up the SelfWealth link is my referral link. I don’t make money if you sign up, I just get some free trades.

What T4B, RoboForex & other brokers bring to the table + why im still bullish af going forward for GVT

Pretty lengthy reply so thought id reply with a new thread for visibility:
@koalaindisguise -> ''Before the project launch, partnership with these forex companies was announced with a big hype. They were not US/UK financial institutions but at least they were companies with legal entities.
I was thinking/hoping that we would be able to entrust our tokens to professional brokers working under these companies. In the end, we have to deal with noname finance gurus on the internet who wants to gamble other people's savings with 50% success fee.
We are just slowly bleeding out one way or the other. I don't think US adoption will turn the table because of tokenomics.''
Before i start:
  • You talk about dealing with some noname finance gurus on the internet, and you would quite happily entrust your tokens to a 'professional broker'. This is the problem with the current industry. There is no transparency. You are entrusting your tokens blindly and you have no idea how your funds are actually being managed nor past performance of these brokers. Genesis Vision gives you the freedom to diversify your investments across multiple different managers, brokers, account types (forex/crypto/stocks) as well as GV Funds & even copytrading soon. With all past and real time results on display.
  • Some of these noname finance gurus might actually be pretty poor traders, in which case they will drop to the bottom of the pile and their trading history open for all to see. There are some good traders too, following all available investment advice would see you wait to make an investment in the right manager based on their program metrics.
  • TLDR - There are good eggs and there are bad eggs, blame the manager for their bad trades, not the platform. Also remember it was your choice to invest in that manager and all the metrics were available for you to view before you did.
Back to your question regarding partnerships:
Tools4Brokers:
  • T4B engage in technological maintenance and software development for brokerage companies, mainly in forex markets.
  • T4B provides solutions to over 250 companies from thirty different countrys
  • Aleksey Kutsenko CEO of Tools For Brokers is the co-founder & CBDO of Genesis Vision
  • Aleksey is responsible for the implementation strategy of the Genesis Vision platform in the Forex industry
  • T4B supply Genesis Vision with ready codebase solutions.
  • A few details on Alekseys background -> https://blog.genesis.vision/genesis-vision-development-plans-for-2018-from-our-cbdo-alexey-kutsenko-c9aa484bb714
IMO this is a very valuable partnership to have. T4B already had an existing portfolio of brokers prior to the release of the GVT platform. This will have proved greatly beneficial in relation to B2B networking for Genesis Vision, not to mention any techical knowledge and business advice T4B will have bought to the table. Going forward im sure this would continue to be greatly beneficial.
RoboForex:
  • RoboForex supports a roster of approximately 9400 assets from eight different categories, those being forex, stocks, indices, ETFs, commodities, metals, energies and even cryptocurrencies with liquidity for them provided by eight separate liquidity providers.
  • Genesis Vision managers have a “pro standard” account type, meaning that they have access to 36 currency pairs, metals, CFDs and cryptocurrencies.
  • GV Managers can trade with a leverage of up to 1:100
The RoboForex broker is just another broker to add to the list of tools and markets available for GV managers to trade on. I have not personally traded on RoboForex so cannot offer an opinion on how good of a broker they are, but at current they just add an addition choice for trading in the GV ecosystem.
This goes for other Crypto/Forex brokers that will arrive in the platform shortly and are currently integrated. With more and more tools and opportunites becoming available for both the current and future GV managers, the higher chances of creating a successful happy manager
MY reasons for continuing to be bullish on GVT
  • The team continue to focus on development that attracts more managers and investors to the platform (Okex, Huobi, Exante, Chinese translation, Copytrading etc.)
  • Im not saying every manager will be profitable, far from it, but more managers = more profits that flow through to buy pressure on GVT.
  • A new leveling system is being developed that rewards managers based on individual performance rather than creating competition between one another
  • Funds are extremely underrated
  • Some did not agree, but the addition of the multicurrency wallet was the BEST step to take. This will allow for further adoption of the platform and growth in the long run, some of you have seen this as a negative step because you are under the impression it has caused the price in sats to go down. I would like to see more assets added to the multicurrency wallet, not less.
  • The token has solid use cases & if you see the latest AMA their are discussions for additional use cases. These usecases scale heavily with adoption.
I check their Github daily. They are building out this platform making more tools and brokers available, which will only lead to increased adoption by Crypto/Forex Managers & Investors.
Then the marketing comes after the development is complete and the platform is perfected
  • We will see hundreds and in time thousands of managers longer term. If we take a conservative guess and say 20% of these managers are making profit, all this profit will flow through the GVT token. There is now only buy pressure on the token, the sell pressure was removed with the addition of the multicurrency wallet.
  • Some of you have previously said 'Well wont the investor just sell their profits distributed in GVT?'. Of course they can, if they choose too. But alternatively they can also hold GVT for reduced trading fees, reinvest their GVT to another program, invest in a GV Fund, subscribe to a copy trader using GVT as the subscription fee. The latter again, positively effects the Genesis Vision Token.
Heres my other reasons (Yes i've been watching GVT a long time):

Cheapest Online Broker In Australia For Your Average Trade Size

Yesterday I posted on AusFinance about a site I created to make easy price comparisons between online brokers. u/sloppyrock suggested I cross post to this sub - so here it is :)
If you’re not doing any exotic or exciting trading, brokers are essentially commodities that all offer the same (or a very similar) service.
If you think that’s true, the main thing you should consider when choosing a broker is the cost.
But because of the tiered pricing structure of many brokers, it becomes difficult to make recommendations without knowing the average trade size of an individual.
Realising this I did an analysis of brokerage based on trade size. (Green is cheap. Red is expensive.)
There are two things wrong with this:
  1. It doesn’t tell you who the cheapest broker is (because the colours are vague)
  2. I did this some time ago and new brokers have started since
I wanted to make a better, more permanent solution.
So I created a website called TradeCost.io
On this site you can enter any trade size you want up to $1,000,000 (the default is $1,000).
Based on the trade size you enter, the brokerage fee for each online broker is calculated and the table rearranges to order them from least to most expensive:
Example of table sorting
If you need extra features or you’re trying to choose between two brokers I’ve provided some standard information about each broker including:
Example of info popup
Some of the cheaper brokers require you to meet specific criteria to access better pricing, so make sure you check those details in the ‘Fee structure’ info.
A perfect example of this is Saxo who offer ‘Classic’, ‘Platinum’, and ‘VIP’ with each of these tiers available as either participant-sponsored (CHESS) or issuer-sponsored (Custodian):
I tried to be fair by including every broker I could find.
Some brokers who would otherwise be on the list have been excluded because when I called them they weren’t really interested in taking clients who only wanted to trade shares. These were mainly CFD and FX brokers that offer share trading as an additional service to their clients.
If you think I’ve missed a broker or if any of the info on a broker is incorrect, please let me know. I tried to be thorough and called each broker to confirm the additional information so hopefully there aren’t too many issues.
I hope people enjoy the site and it helps you out.
So far a lot of the feedback has been to add columns to the table to show more info without having to click on the popup. I'll work on that soon.
Outside of that - I’m all ears on ways it can be improved so please provide feedback in the comments :)
Just as a heads up the SelfWealth link is my referral link. I don’t make money if you sign up, I just get some free trades.

Market Risk 22. Bitcoin's Tax Risk What is Bitcoin?
Bitcoin is a digital currency created in January 2009. It follows the ideas set out in a white paper by the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto, whose true identity is yet to be verified. Bitcoin offers the promise of lower transaction fees than traditional online payment mechanisms and is operated by a decentralized authority, unlike government-issued currencies.
There are no physical bitcoins, only balances kept on a public ledger in the cloud, that – along with all Bitcoin transactions – is verified by a massive amount of computing power. Bitcoins are not issued or backed by any banks or governments, nor are individual bitcoins valuable as a commodity. Despite it not being legal tender, Bitcoin charts high on popularity, and has triggered the launch of other virtual currencies collectively referred to as Altcoins.
Understanding Bitcoin Bitcoin is a type of cryptocurrency: Balances are kept using public and private "keys," which are long strings of numbers and letters linked through the mathematical encryption algorithm that was used to create them. The public key (comparable to a bank account number) serves as the address which is published to the world and to which others may send bitcoins. The private key (comparable to an ATM PIN) is meant to be a guarded secret and only used to authorize Bitcoin transmissions. Style notes: According to the official Bitcoin Foundation, the word "Bitcoin" is capitalized in the context of referring to the entity or concept, whereas "bitcoin" is written in the lower case when referring to a quantity of the currency (e.g. "I traded 20 bitcoin") or the units themselves. The plural form can be either "bitcoin" or "bitcoins."
How Bitcoin Works Bitcoin is one of the first digital currencies to use peer-to-peer technology to facilitate instant payments. The independent individuals and companies who own the governing computing power and participate in the Bitcoin network, also known as "miners," are motivated by rewards (the release of new bitcoin) and transaction fees paid in bitcoin. These miners can be thought of as the decentralized authority enforcing the credibility of the Bitcoin network. New bitcoin is being released to the miners at a fixed, but periodically declining rate, such that the total supply of bitcoins approaches 21 million. One bitcoin is divisible to eight decimal places (100 millionths of one bitcoin), and this smallest unit is referred to as a Satoshi. If necessary, and if the participating miners accept the change, Bitcoin could eventually be made divisible to even more decimal places. Bitcoin mining is the process through which bitcoins are released to come into circulation. Basically, it involves solving a computationally difficult puzzle to discover a new block, which is added to the blockchain and receiving a reward in the form of a few bitcoins. The block reward was 50 new bitcoins in 2009; it decreases every four years. As more and more bitcoins are created, the difficulty of the mining process – that is, the amount of computing power involved – increases. The mining difficulty began at 1.0 with Bitcoin's debut back in 2009; at the end of the year, it was only 1.18. As of February 2019, the mining difficulty is over 6.06 billion. Once, an ordinary desktop computer sufficed for the mining process; now, to combat the difficulty level, miners must use faster hardware like Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASIC), more advanced processing units like Graphic Processing Units (GPUs), etc.
What's a Bitcoin Worth? In 2017 alone, the price of Bitcoin rose from a little under $1,000 at the beginning of the year to close to $19,000, ending the year more than 1,400% higher. Bitcoin's price is also quite dependent on the size of its mining network since the larger the network is, the more difficult – and thus more costly – it is to produce new bitcoins. As a result, the price of bitcoin has to increase as its cost of production also rises. The Bitcoin mining network's aggregate power has more than tripled over the past twelve months.
How Bitcoin Began
Aug. 18, 2008: The domain name bitcoin.org is registered. Today, at least, this domain is "WhoisGuard Protected," meaning the identity of the person who registered it is not public information.
Oct. 31, 2008: Someone using the name Satoshi Nakamoto makes an announcement on The Cryptography Mailing list at metzdowd.com: "I've been working on a new electronic cash system that's fully peer-to-peer, with no trusted third party. The paper is available at http://www.bitcoin.org/bitcoin.pdf." This link leads to the now-famous white paper published on bitcoin.org entitled "Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System." This paper would become the Magna Carta for how Bitcoin operates today.
Jan. 3, 2009: The first Bitcoin block is mined, Block 0. This is also known as the "genesis block" and contains the text: "The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks," perhaps as proof that the block was mined on or after that date, and perhaps also as relevant political commentary.
Jan. 8, 2009: The first version of the Bitcoin software is announced on The Cryptography Mailing list.
Jan. 9, 2009: Block 1 is mined, and Bitcoin mining commences in earnest.
Who Invented Bitcoin?
No one knows. Not conclusively, at any rate. Satoshi Nakamoto is the name associated with the person or group of people who released the original Bitcoin white paper in 2008 and worked on the original Bitcoin software that was released in 2009. The Bitcoin protocol requires users to enter a birthday upon signup, and we know that an individual named Satoshi Nakamoto registered and put down April 5 as a birth date. And that's about it.
Before Satoshi
Though it is tempting to believe the media's spin that Satoshi Nakamoto is a solitary, quixotic genius who created Bitcoin out of thin air, such innovations do not happen in a vacuum. All major scientific discoveries, no matter how original-seeming, were built on previously existing research. There are precursors to Bitcoin: Adam Back’s Hashcash, invented in 1997, and subsequently Wei Dai’s b-money, Nick Szabo’s bit gold and Hal Finney’s Reusable Proof of Work. The Bitcoin white paper itself cites Hashcash and b-money, as well as various other works spanning several research fields.
Why Is Satoshi Anonymous?
There are two primary motivations for keeping Bitcoin's inventor keeping his or her or their identity secret. One is privacy. As Bitcoin has gained in popularity – becoming something of a worldwide phenomenon – Satoshi Nakamoto would likely garner a lot of attention from the media and from governments.
The other reason is safety. Looking at 2009 alone, 32,489 blocks were mined; at the then-reward rate of 50 BTC per block, the total payout in 2009 was 1,624,500 BTC, which at today’s prices is over $900 million. One may conclude that only Satoshi and perhaps a few other people were mining through 2009 and that they possess a majority of that $900 million worth of BTC. Someone in possession of that much BTC could become a target of criminals, especially since bitcoins are less like stocks and more like cash, where the private keys needed to authorize spending could be printed out and literally kept under a mattress. While it's likely the inventor of Bitcoin would take precautions to make any extortion-induced transfers traceable, remaining anonymous is a good way for Satoshi to limit exposure.
The Suspects
Numerous people have been suggested as possible Satoshi Nakamoto by major media outlets. Oct. 10, 2011, The New Yorker published an article speculating that Nakamoto might be Irish cryptography student Michael Clear or economic sociologist Vili Lehdonvirta. A day later, Fast Company suggested that Nakamoto could be a group of three people – Neal King, Vladimir Oksman and Charles Bry – who together appear on a patent related to secure communications that were filed two months before bitcoin.org was registered. A Vice article published in May 2013 added more suspects to the list, including Gavin Andresen, the Bitcoin project’s lead developer; Jed McCaleb, co-founder of now-defunct Bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox; and famed Japanese mathematician Shinichi Mochizuki.
In December 2013, Techcrunch published an interview with researcher Skye Grey who claimed textual analysis of published writings shows a link between Satoshi and bit-gold creator Nick Szabo. And perhaps most famously, in March 2014, Newsweek ran a cover article claiming that Satoshi is actually an individual named Satoshi Nakamoto – a 64-year-old Japanese-American engineer living in California. The list of suspects is long, and all the individuals deny being Satoshi.
Can Satoshi's Identity Be Proven?
It would seem even early collaborators on the project don’t have verifiable proof of Satoshi’s identity. To reveal conclusively who Satoshi Nakamoto is, a definitive link would need to be made between his/her activity with Bitcoin and his/her identity. That could come in the form of linking the party behind the domain registration of bitcoin.org, email and forum accounts used by Satoshi Nakamoto, or ownership of some portion of the earliest mined bitcoins. Even though the bitcoins Satoshi likely possesses are traceable on the blockchain, it seems he/she has yet to cash them out in a way that reveals his/her identity. If Satoshi were to move his/her bitcoins to an exchange today, this might attract attention, but it seems unlikely that a well-funded and successful exchange would betray a customer's privacy.
Receiving Bitcoins As Payment
Bitcoins can be accepted as a means of payment for products sold or services provided. If you have a brick and mortar store, just display a sign saying “Bitcoin Accepted Here” and many of your customers may well take you up on it; the transactions can be handled with the requisite hardware terminal or wallet address through QR codes and touch screen apps. An online business can easily accept bitcoins by just adding this payment option to the others it offers, like credit cards, PayPal, etc. Online payments will require a Bitcoin merchant tool (an external processor like Coinbase or BitPay).
Working For Bitcoins
Those who are self-employed can get paid for a job in bitcoins. There are several websites/job boards which are dedicated to the digital currency:
Work For Bitcoin brings together work seekers and prospective employers through its websiteCoinality features jobs – freelance, part-time and full-time – that offer payment in bitcoins, as well as Dogecoin and LitecoinJobs4Bitcoins, part of reddit.comBitGigs
Bitcoin From Interest Payments
Another interesting way (literally) to earn bitcoins is by lending them out and being repaid in the currency. Lending can take three forms – direct lending to someone you know; through a website which facilitates peer-to-peer transactions, pairing borrowers and lenders; or depositing bitcoins in a virtual bank that offers a certain interest rate for Bitcoin accounts. Some such sites are Bitbond, BitLendingClub, and BTCjam. Obviously, you should do due diligence on any third-party site.
Bitcoins From Gambling
It’s possible to play at casinos that cater to Bitcoin aficionados, with options like online lotteries, jackpots, spread betting, and other games. Of course, the pros and cons and risks that apply to any sort of gambling and betting endeavors are in force here too.
Investing in Bitcoins
There are many Bitcoin supporters who believe that digital currency is the future. Those who endorse it are of the view that it facilitates a much faster, no-fee payment system for transactions across the globe. Although it is not itself any backed by any government or central bank, bitcoin can be exchanged for traditional currencies; in fact, its exchange rate against the dollar attracts potential investors and traders interested in currency plays. Indeed, one of the primary reasons for the growth of digital currencies like Bitcoin is that they can act as an alternative to national fiat money and traditional commodities like gold.
In March 2014, the IRS stated that all virtual currencies, including bitcoins, would be taxed as property rather than currency. Gains or losses from bitcoins held as capital will be realized as capital gains or losses, while bitcoins held as inventory will incur ordinary gains or losses.
Like any other asset, the principle of buying low and selling high applies to bitcoins. The most popular way of amassing the currency is through buying on a Bitcoin exchange, but there are many other ways to earn and own bitcoins. Here are a few options which Bitcoin enthusiasts can explore.
Risks of Bitcoin Investing
Though Bitcoin was not designed as a normal equity investment (no shares have been issued), some speculative investors were drawn to the digital money after it appreciated rapidly in May 2011 and again in November 2013. Thus, many people purchase bitcoin for its investment value rather than as a medium of exchange.
However, their lack of guaranteed value and digital nature means the purchase and use of bitcoins carries several inherent risks. Many investor alerts have been issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), and other agencies.
The concept of a virtual currency is still novel and, compared to traditional investments, Bitcoin doesn't have much of a long-term track record or history of credibility to back it. With their increasing use, bitcoins are becoming less experimental every day, of course; still, after eight years, they (like all digital currencies) remain in a development phase, still evolving. "It is pretty much the highest-risk, highest-return investment that you can possibly make,” says Barry Silbert, CEO of Digital Currency Group, which builds and invests in Bitcoin and blockchain companies.
Bitcoin Regulatory Risk
Investing money into Bitcoin in any of its many guises is not for the risk-averse. Bitcoins are a rival to government currency and may be used for black market transactions, money laundering, illegal activities or tax evasion. As a result, governments may seek to regulate, restrict or ban the use and sale of bitcoins, and some already have. Others are coming up with various rules. For example, in 2015, the New York State Department of Financial Services finalized regulations that would require companies dealing with the buy, sell, transfer or storage of bitcoins to record the identity of customers, have a compliance officer and maintain capital reserves. The transactions worth $10,000 or more will have to be recorded and reported.
Although more agencies will follow suit, issuing rules and guidelines, the lack of uniform regulations about bitcoins (and other virtual currency) raises questions over their longevity, liquidity, and universality.
Security Risk of Bitcoins
Bitcoin exchanges are entirely digital and, as with any virtual system, are at risk from hackers, malware and operational glitches. If a thief gains access to a Bitcoin owner's computer hard drive and steals his private encryption key, he could transfer the stolen Bitcoins to another account. (Users can prevent this only if bitcoins are stored on a computer which is not connected to the internet, or else by choosing to use a paper wallet – printing out the Bitcoin private keys and addresses, and not keeping them on a computer at all.) Hackers can also target Bitcoin exchanges, gaining access to thousands of accounts and digital wallets where bitcoins are stored. One especially notorious hacking incident took place in 2014, when Mt. Gox, a Bitcoin exchange in Japan, was forced to close down after millions of dollars worth of bitcoins were stolen.
This is particularly problematic once you remember that all Bitcoin transactions are permanent and irreversible. It's like dealing with cash: Any transaction carried out with bitcoins can only be reversed if the person who has received them refunds them. There is no third party or a payment processor, as in the case of a debit or credit card – hence, no source of protection or appeal if there is a problem.
Insurance Risk
Some investments are insured through the Securities Investor Protection Corporation. Normal bank accounts are insured through the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) up to a certain amount depending on the jurisdiction. Bitcoin exchanges and Bitcoin accounts are not insured by any type of federal or government program.
Risk of Bitcoin Fraud
While Bitcoin uses private key encryption to verify owners and register transactions, fraudsters and scammers may attempt to sell false bitcoins. For instance, in July 2013, the SEC brought legal action against an operator of a Bitcoin-related Ponzi scheme.
Market Risk
Like with any investment, Bitcoin values can fluctuate. Indeed, the value of the currency has seen wild swings in price over its short existence. Subject to high volume buying and selling on exchanges, it has a high sensitivity to “news." According to the CFPB, the price of bitcoins fell by 61% in a single day in 2013, while the one-day price drop in 2014 has been as big as 80%.
If fewer people begin to accept Bitcoin as a currency, these digital units may lose value and could become worthless. There is already plenty of competition, and though Bitcoin has a huge lead over the other 100-odd digital currencies that have sprung up, thanks to its brand recognition and venture capital money, a technological break-through in the form of a better virtual coin is always a threat.
Bitcoin's Tax Risk
As bitcoin is ineligible to be included in any tax-advantaged retirement accounts, there are no good, legal options to shield investments from taxation.

The Woodford Equity Income Fund, managed by Neil Woodford, stopped investors cashing out this week. In spite of the suspension of a fund it promoted to clients through its "Wealth 50" list of top buys, the firm stands by its research, Mr Hill said.
Mr Woodford, one of the UK's best-known stockpickers, suspended the fund after rising numbers of investors asked for their money back.

Coinexx Review - The Crypto FX Broker

Coinexx.com is one of the new- gen hybrid Crypto Forex Broker. They offer Forex CFDs, Commodities, Indies and Crypto pairs for trading. The competitive spreads, low commissions and good trading conditions are getting the broker rave reviews.
Coinexx doesn’t require any identity verification for traders to set up an account. The broker has a strict “no fiat” policy meaning you cannot deposit in traditional fiat currencies. They offer 25 crypto currencies to deposit and withdraw at no cost. The deposits are auto & instant and withdrawals within 24 hours. They offer both metatrader platforms, i.e. MT4 and MT5 to clients to trade on their ECN account. The traders can choose between a BTC, BCC, LTC, USD and ETH base currency account.
What Stands Out
- Any to Any deposit & withdrawals between 25 altcoins
-Tight Spreads- 500X leverage and leveraged crypto pairs
-Commission at just $2 per lot, lowest from our list of brokers
- No Verification Anonymous Account Opening
- Accepts US clients, Canadian Clients and is NON ESMA
- Live Chat Support 24/5 (unusual for a Crypto Broker)
- Trust Factor – 5/5 stars
Con –
MT4 Missing. The broker argues that since Meta Quotes will not be updating MT4 and all ultimately MT4 brokers will have to transition to MT5 so they decided to offer MT5 only. More of their business decision not a Con per say. [Update: Coinexx is now offering MT4 platform to traders]
Scam Alert – NIL
PS: the review is based on facts collected from internet as well as other forums and after testing the broker's live account by our moderators. Let us know what you think about the broker in the comments below and/or if you hold a different view that what has been said above.

Breaking News: Coinexx acquired FinPro Trading.

What does this mean for FinPro Trading traders?
You will continue to trade on the same MT4 trading terminal that you are currently using at Finpro, with your existing MT4 login ID/Password. The commission charges will continue to be the same while the spreads will become better than what they used to be at Finpro.
