Capital.com is a large international forex & CFD broker established in 2016 that today has offices in Australia, the UK and Cyprus, and with an additional offshore branch located in the Seychelles. The broker offers a very large selection of trading instruments, and leverage of up to 1:200 via its offshore branch.
Worth noting about Capital.com is that this broker is fully regulated in both the UK, Cyprus and Australia. This unfortunately means that traders in these regions can only get leverage of up to 1:30, in accordance with local regulations.
One great benefit with Capital.com, however, is the focus on transparency that this broker has. It clearly explains on its website how it makes money, and makes it easy to understand what services it charges its users money for, and what services are free.
Moreover, we also like the focus on trader education that this company has. Capital.com’s founder Viktor Prokopenya states on the broker’s website that “free and extensive education” is a priority for the company, and that a lack of experience should not be an obstacle to begin making money as a trader.
Another thing that stands out with Capital.com is the huge selection of trading instruments that the broker has to offer. Most notably, this includes a selection of more than 5,000 single stocks listed in Australia, Canada, the US, the UK, the EU, Russia, Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore. In addition, Capital.com also offers trading in stock indices, commodities, as well as more than 120 forex pairs and close to 500 crypto pairs - more than almost any other broker we have reviewed here on FX-List.
The assets offered for trading by Capital.com can be traded on a variety of platforms, including the broker’s own web platform, the classic MetaTrader 4 (MT4), the web-based charting platform TradingView, and on mobile trading apps for Apple and Android devices. Among these, the possibility to trade directly from TradingView is probably the most unique for this broker, given that only a handful of forex & CFD brokers globally currently offer this option.
In addition to the platforms mentioned above, Capital.com - like many other forex brokers - also offers an API solution for traders who want to connect using other third-party trading platforms.
Once signed up with Capital.com as a new user, it’s time to fund the trading account. For this, the broker accepts most major online payment options, including of course major credit and debit cards as well as e-wallets like PayPal, Skrill, Neteller, Trustly and Qiwi. In Australia and New Zealand, the broker also supports the local payment method POLi.
Unfortunately for some, deposits and withdrawals with crypto are not yet accepted by Capital.com.
To reach Capital.com’s customer support, clients can use any of the messaging apps Telegram, WhatsApp, Viber or Messenger, as well as a UK phone number for live support. As usual, the broker’s support team is also available via email for less urgent matters.
All in all, there is no doubt that Capital.com is a serious player in the forex broker industry, with many years of extensive experience. The company is also fully regulated in several tier 1 jurisdictions, which adds credibility to it as a company and means the risk is low that anything unexpected will happen with client funds. For traders looking to trade a wide variety of instruments on either MT4, TradingView or a dedicated web platform, Capital.com could therefore be an interesting broker to consider.
