Trading 212 is a global forex broker operating out of the European Union. It stands for transparent operations and strict regulatory compliance, therefore it is registered with eight authorities around the world. What's more, the broker is compliant with the EU's Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) - a piece of legislation designed to increase customer protection.
Unlike other brokers, Trading 212 has chosen to offer a single, proprietary trading platform that offers pretty much everything that a trader needs: a user-friendly, flexible browser-based platform that can be accessed from any computer with an internet connection; two sets of charting, technical analysis tools, built-in economic calendar and real-time news feed, etc.
The platform is also available as an iPhone app, and an Android version is expected to launch in the foreseeable future.
The spreads offered at Trading 212 are decent, albeit not the tightest ones we've seen on the market. The broker offers fast STP execution and little to no slippage.
One of Trading 212's best features is its customer support: it is available around the clock in 11 different languages. The customer care representatives are polite, efficient and dedicated to addressing any question or issue that may occur.
