Comment by Reviewer
"After opening an account, I think Equiti is a pretty good option for experienced traders looking for ECN pricing with high leverage rates on the feature-rich MT5 platform. That said, the offshore regulation doesn't give me a great deal of confidence and the lack of educational tools is frustrating."
Pros
  • I'm pleased that there's a strong range of accessible payment methods, including bank wire, cards, e-wallets and cryptos
  • The free demo with unlimited usage is a game-changer for those who want to continuously test their strategies
  • DeFi enthusiasts can speculate on an impressive range of 80+ cryptocurrency CFD products
  • I appreciate the 24/6 customer support available in 6 languages, via email and live chat
  • High leverage rates of 1:2000 are on offer for experienced margin traders
Cons
  • I think retail clients should look elsewhere for robust regulatory oversight since Equiti's main brokerage branch is regulated offshore
  • Equiti falls short in terms of educational material and extra tools, with one of the most basic offerings I have seen
  • I'm disappointed that bank transfer and e-wallet withdrawals are subject to a fee of 1% up to $30

Commodities
CFD Trading
Trade CFDs in common financial markets. The broker's CFD range encompasses all my favorites: forex, US, UK and European stocks, international ETFs, energy commodities, global stock indices and cryptos. They're all available with competitive ECN conditions from within the MT4 or MT5 trading platforms.

Forex Trading
Tiered margin trading is available on FX pairs. During my testing, I uncovered nearly 70 foreign exchange CFDs - not a bad line-up compared to other brokers I review. The broker’s STP execution model means that execution times for me are generally quite low and spreads are competitive, starting from 0.0 pips.

Cryptocurrency
Trade five popular cryptocurrency coins. I’m pretty happy with Equiti’s 1:10 leverage and spreads from $5 on popular crypto pairs like BTCUSD. Savvy clients can also utilize the broker's signals and market news to get crypto trade ideas and keep abreast of industry developments.
