Comment by Reviewer
"Awesome Miner is a good option if you need the infrastructure for significant mining operations. The web interface and low minimum investment also makes the platform very accessible."
"Based on my time using the platform, I think SmartFX is a good choice for new traders looking for multi-asset trading opportunities on the MT5 terminal. However, the offshore VFSC regulation doesn't fill me with confidence and I don't appreciate the lack of transparency on the website."

I wasn't able to access any cryptocurrency trading opportunities, which is a drawback compared to similar brands
I think the 5000+ CFD instruments including forex, commodities, indices and stocks should serve active traders well. The MT5 platform also offers plenty of advanced tools and features to facilitate complex CFD trading strategies.
Forex trading not offered
I found an average range of 45+ major, minor and exotic currency pairs at SmartFX, tradable on the MT5 platform. I did appreciate the flexible leverage up to 1:400 and minimum order sizes from 0.01 lots.
