Comment by Reviewer
"Based on my extensive tests, ATC Brokers is best for experienced traders who can afford the initial $2,000 cost and can trade enough volume to overcome the high deposit and withdrawal costs." "I think traders looking for an easy-to-use mobile trading app with auto investment options and savings plans should consider Trade Republic. However, after testing out the account, the lack of additional tools and resources was a major drawback for me."
Pros
  • I'm a fan of the broker's advanced MT4 toolset called MT Pro, which supports advanced reporting and a more sophisticated one-click trading functionality
  • I also rate the rapid trade execution through the broker's ECN pricing model, which allowed me to access spreads from 0.3 pips on EUR/USD
  • Top-tier FCA regulation ensures that certain customers are protected from financial malpractice via robust safeguarding measures
  • ATC Brokers offers both self-directed trading and PAMM investment accounts for experienced account managers
  • It's good to see that Trade Republic is authorized and regulated by the Federal Bank of Germany (BaFin) with €100,000 compensation available per investor
  • I'm a fan of Trade Republic's sleek and modern mobile app with simple navigation and an easy-to-use interface
  • I think the commission-free pricing model on all assets with $0 minimum deposit and $1 minimum investment makes the broker ideal for beginners
  • Trade Republic offers a pretty impressive asset list including 8000+ international stocks, 500+ ETFs, 40,000+ derivatives and 50+ crypto coins
  • I also like that interest payments are available on uninvested cash balances
Cons
  • ATC Brokers has a disappointing asset range compared to most competitors, supporting a total of just 51 products
  • I'm disappointed that there is no commission-free pricing model available for less experienced and lower-volume traders
  • I expected a larger range of educational and analysis materials from the broker, which would help clients make more informed trading decisions
  • The minimum deposit limit of $2,000 is pretty high in my opinion, especially with such a small asset list on offer
  • I think it's a shame that there's no demo account or any educational content on offer for beginners
  • There are limited customer support options with no live chat or telephone contact
  • My tests found that Trade Republic is only available to European residents
