Score: 9.2 ⭐️

5/4/20231 min read

Traders choose Swissquote becuse quality research and vast multi-asset offering – as long as they are willing to pay a premium to have their brokerage account held with a Swiss bank.

Swissquote's U.K. branch provides the best pricing out of its available account options, but it has a smaller range of markets.

Offering of investments

They are the first bank in the world to offer the ability to trade underlying cryptocurrencies (non-CFDs). 23 cryptocurrencies are available, among them Dogecoin, Polkadot, Cardano, Uniswap and other popular crypto assets. Swissquote is also preparing to launch crypto staking and lending.

eTrading vs eForex accounts: With the Swissquote eTrading account offering, clients can trade cryptocurrencies along with many other assets across 60 global market exchanges. However, traders who want to trade forex and CFDs alongside forwards and options must use Swissquote’s eForex account, which offers only 292 assets. This is a relatively narrow selection compared to other forex brands.
