Comment by Reviewer
"Based on my experience, Tiger Brokers is an excellent choice for dedicated stock traders looking to trade US, Asian and Australian shares, as well as options, futures, warrants and interest rates. It’s also great for anyone looking for explore an innovative proprietary trading platform."
Pros
  • I’m satisfied with the brokers strong industry reputation, with multiple awards, custodian backing (including from Interactive Brokers and DBS bank), and its appointed listing on the NASDAQ
  • I think Tiger Brokers competes well with similar brands when it comes to market coverage, with an excellent range of stocks and funds from US and Pacific exchanges
  • I appreciate that there’s no minimum deposit to get started on the powerful trading terminal, which is accessible via a stable desktop app or mobile device
  • I also appreciate that the broker supports fee-free deposits via bank wire and Wise, in a range of currencies including HKD, USD, AUD and EUR
  • I feel relatively safe registering with this broker since it holds reputable licenses with multiple bodies including the SEC, FINRA and MAS
  • There’s a free demo account available for those who want to browse the platform’s features before committing real funds
  • I found several customer service options, including a live chat, telephone number, WhatsApp and email
Cons
  • I think some traders may feel restricted by the single proprietary platform offering, with no access to popular third-party stock trading terminals like MetaTrader 4
  • Compared to traditional brokers, there’s limited account funding methods which may be a drawback for traders used to depositing via e-wallets
  • Compared to some other brokers, I think the range of educational resources and market analysis tools is lacking a little
  • I’m a little disappointed that there’s no EMEA market access which would serve a wider cohort of investors
