Comment by Reviewer
"Degiro is perfect for low-cost stock trading on US, UK and European markets with a straightforward platform and app. Casual investors will appreciate that there are no inactivity fees while long-term traders will rate the wide selection of ETFs." "Gemini’s ActiveTrader platform, transparency and attention to regulatory requirements make it a good choice for serious crypto traders seeking a reliable platform to trade crypto derivatives, though we were disappointed by some unnecessary fees and past financial problems."
