Comment by Reviewer
"N1CM will satisfy forex traders seeking high leverage up to 1:1000 with an offshore broker. The low $5 deposit and Cent account will appeal to beginners in particular. On the negative side, the broker's regulatory status is weak." "With strong regulatory oversight, helpful educational content and support for the market-leading MetaTrader 4 platform, Fortrade is a good pick for newer traders."

Cryptocurrency
Trade leveraged CFDs on BTC, BCH, ETH, XRP and LTC in pairs with USD. The small selection does not offer much to traders who favor crypto, but there is enough for traders to dip into the sector's volatility. Fortrade offers CFD trading on the largest cryptos by market cap paired with USD. Crypto CFD availability depends on local regulations and they are not offered in jurisdictions including the UK due to restrictions.
