I am from Belgium and can't trade through Markets.com anymore. They say this is due to legislation in my country. I've still got a balance of 160 euros on my account, can you transfer this amount to my bank account. Last time I was logged in was 1.5 years ago, you could have informed me that I still had 160 euros in my account.

I think the difference between purchase price and sale price is too big. I understand that Markets.com itself wants to earn money but I'm going to look further for another broker. The live chat also responds very slowly.

I always look at the last 100 transactions of the more successful traders and try to get the best out of this and copy these. I'm still a beginner when it comes to trading so the amounts involved are not enormous but for me every euro counts. If I keep going like this, I expect to have doubled my original investment within 2 weeks. Customer service always take their time with you and even warn you if you might be investing too much. If you're a beginner like me then make sure your leverage doesn't exceed 1:25, so your losses aren't too high if the market takes a turn for the worse. You also can't have a negative balance I've been told. There are also many e-books available which can be helpful. I used to be with eToro Markets' software is much better.

One of the better brokers I've encountered for investing. Low transaction fees, a good offering, fast software. I do about 2-5 trades every day to keep an overview and of course to avoid making a loss. I close my investments every day before 5 'o clock so I'm not lying awake at night over them. Received two payments from Markets, one of 180 dollars and another of 644 dollars.

I've already earned a lot of money trading in CFD. The key is to cash out your profit on time. After that it's a question of waiting calmly for the next opportunity. Follow the financial news and use it to your advantage. You need to send a copy of your passport and an electricity/gas bill before you can have your profits paid out. If you fail to do so you will not receive payments, due to some form of legislation.

I've been a trader with Markets.com for years, mainly USD/EUR. I started with cryptocurrency in the last few months. The great advantage with trading in bitcoin or ethereum is that the market is open 7 days per week 24 hours a day. I don't particularly enjoy using the app to trade, I have stubby fingers so it's easy for me to make mistakes. Trading using the tablet via the app is fine. Payments received via PayPal are a lot quicker than through your regular bank account. Customer service is also available in my own language which is a massive bonus compared to other brokers.
