Comment by Reviewer
"I think traders looking for an easy-to-use mobile trading app with auto investment options and savings plans should consider Trade Republic. However, after testing out the account, the lack of additional tools and resources was a major drawback for me."
"Fidelity is a great match for long-term investors who want an affordable platform to build their pension or investment portfolios. The SEC and FCA oversight are also good signs that the brokerage is regulated and trustworthy."
It's good to see that Trade Republic is authorized and regulated by the Federal Bank of Germany (BaFin) with €100,000 compensation available per investor
I'm a fan of Trade Republic's sleek and modern mobile app with simple navigation and an easy-to-use interface
I think the commission-free pricing model on all assets with $0 minimum deposit and $1 minimum investment makes the broker ideal for beginners
Trade Republic offers a pretty impressive asset list including 8000+ international stocks, 500+ ETFs, 40,000+ derivatives and 50+ crypto coins
I also like that interest payments are available on uninvested cash balances
Excellent list of stocks and funds to choose from
Very competitive pricing compared to largest rivals
Good list of account types to suit various types of investor
Uninvested cash is automatically put into a money market fund
Trusted global brand with strong regulation from SEC & FCA
Tax-efficient vehicles are available including ISAs
I think it's a shame that there's no demo account or any educational content on offer for beginners
There are limited customer support options with no live chat or telephone contact
My tests found that Trade Republic is only available to European residents
No forex or CFD trading
There is no demo account
Less suitable for short-term day trading
Presentation of data is overly complicated
No trading platform for non-US clients
The $1000 minimum deposit for international clients is high

Trade Republic offers a very good range of 50+ crypto coins such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and Ripple. I can trade 24/7 for as little as €1 and I'm pleased to see that cold wallet storage solutions are available for digital currency, regulated in Germany and Austria.
