Quick Introduction

  • Choosing a broker that offers secure and low-cost funding options will improve your trading experience.

  • For some traders the time it takes to process a payment is essential, while other traders are fine with waiting a few days.
  • Likewise, depending on whether you will make many small transactions or fewer, larger ones, transaction costs might be more or less important.
