THANKS FOR YOUR TIME

The first thing that comes to our minds after browsing the homepage of easy-forex is “outdated”. The broker's spreads, the services and platforms offered, the fact that it has a ridiculous manifesto on its website – all that just screams “old-fashioned” - and while there's nothing wrong with all things old-fashioned, the forex industry develops way too fast for such brokers to remain competitive. 

 
Take spreads for example: they're fixed, and being such are also quite high. 3 pips on EUR/USD? Thanks but no thanks; Liquid Markets for example offers us a fixed spread of 0.9 pips on EUR/USD so we see no reason to go with spreads as high as easy-forex's. 
 
Now let's talk platforms. easy-forex offers MT4, and two proprietary platforms: Visual Trading (web-based) and the TradeDesk (download required). 
 
TradeDesk is a pretty flexible platform that eliminates unnecessary clutter. You install a layout, then add the modules (apps) you need – charting, dealer chat, news etc., and you're good to go. 
 
Visual Trading is an ok browser based platform with an interesting highlight: the Freeze Rate feature that lets you lock the rate you see for a couple of seconds before you open a trade.
 
As we mentioned, if we had to decide, we would opt for another broker with lower spreads but of what easy-forex offers is your thing, you can recommend the broker to your friends and get a refer-a-friend bonus of up to $500 (the bonus can only be used for trading).
