    I trade with MARKETS BROKER. It`s quite an easy platform but service is bad on phone cause the app is not full version. So trade on PC it`s better. Its not that difficult just be patient and don`t open a lot positions in one time if you dont have experience.

    i found the spreads on crypto trading to be far to high, also i dont know were they get there prices from but they are way different from the crypto prices on coinbase, i had three positions closed by them ,i thought the price of litecoin was going up ..but on their platform it was going in the opposite direction ?? ..i lost about 4000$ .. i cancelled my account and left, prices seemed manipulated IMHO.

    Total ripoff, today on the best criptocurrency trading day of the year for bitcoin, they dinamically changed the spread up to £90… so the currency had to move 90.01 so I could make a single cent, on top of that they pushed up the price in markets.com up to $200 the price of the real account AND they froze trading movements, ripping me off over 200pips in profits. Total SCAM, total ripoff will be complaining to authorities and you should be wise to not go there. Everything that I said can be checked on the history logs minus the spreads, the wrong prices are still there.

    PS: I had the same experience as you David Pennock
