Comprehensive review

Windsor Brokers is one of the veterans in the forex & CFD brokerage industry, established all the way back in 1988. The broker today has a branch in Cyprus serving customers based in the EU, a branch in Jordan serving customers in Jordan and the rest of the Middle East, as well as one in Belize serving customers in the rest of the world.

All of Windsor Brokers’ local entities are regulated by the relevant financial regulators in the countries they operate. This includes oversight by the ESMA and CySEC in Cyprus, the International Financial Services Commission of Belize (IFSC) in Belize, and the Jordan Securities Commission (JSC) in Jordan.

As a result of the different regulatory regimes Windsor Brokers is operating under, the maximum allowed trading leverage also varies depending on where the client is residing.

For residents in EU and EEA countries trading with the Cyprus-regulated branch of the broker, maximum leverage will as usual be limited to only 1:30 for major forex pairs, and even less for minor forex pairs and various CFDs. For non-EU traders using the Belize-regulated branch of the broker, however, the same limit is a good 1:500, which we believe should be plenty for most traders.

The underlying assets that are available for trading from Windsor Brokers includes over 40 major and minor currency pairs, precious metals against both euros and US dollars, as well as CFDs based on everything from commodities, to stock indices, treasuries, Bitcoin, and shares of major American companies.

All assets offered by Windsor Brokers can be traded on the MetaTrader 4 platform, which is the broker’s only trading platform. Better known as MT4, this platform already has a very large user base in the forex trading community, and probably does not need any introduction here.

In addition to the standard desktop-based version of MT4, Windsor Brokers also gives its clients the choice to trade with the web-based version that can be used across both Mac and PCs, as well as mobile versions for Android and iPhone.

Windsor Brokers offers its clients the choice between signing up with two different types of trading accounts; the Zero account and the Prime account.

Out of these two trading accounts, Zero is by far the best option for experienced traders who are trading with larger volumes, as it basically resembles a classic ECN account. Although it requires a minimum deposit of USD 2,500, the account offers spreads from 0 pips and with a USD 8 commission for each round-turn trade.

The Prime account, on the other hand, is an ideal choice for beginners and traders with smaller trading accounts. In fact, this account also offers pretty tight spreads of just 1 pip on major FX pairs and with no commission fee charged. Unlike the Zero account, traders with the Prime account are also entitled to participate in certain training programs for traders.

Both types of trading accounts with Windsor Brokers can be funded with Visa, MasterCard, UnionPay, as well as the popular e-wallet platforms WebMoney, Neteller, and Skrill. Additionally, regular bank transfer is also accepted as usual.

In conclusion, we believe Windsor Brokers has first and foremost done a great job staying in the industry for so long. It is remarkable for any forex brokerage company to have remained in the business for more than 30 years, and we believe it proves that Windsor is a company that takes its responsibilities seriously.

With the tight spreads and high leverage that this broker can offer outside of the EU, we believe Windsor will provide most traders with the tools and framework they need to be successful in the forex market.
