If there is something outstanding that segregates Admiral Markets from other Forex- and CFD-Brokers, then it is the vast variety of add ons and additional tools for the Metatrader 4 platform. These well programmed and fully functionable tools will transform your metatrader 4 platform into a high quality trading machine for discretional traders. Last but not least we can apply a reliable risk and moneymanagement from the very first moment of our trade. Place your initial trade with a fixed stop loss level in USD or EUR or even in percent of your balance. Use trend lines as a stop loss or close all your open positions at once. When it comes to financial security and stability Admiral Markets provides you with a severe FCA regulation and segregated customer accounts. Your money will be deposited with barclays and will never get in touch with the firm's equity. In case of a company's bancrupcy the FSCS will refund you up to 50.000 GBP for the backed margin. The money within your segregated account is safe and will be refunded with up to 85.000 GBP by the British Government.
As already mentioned Admiral Markets is regulated by the british Financial Conduct Authority and provides segregated customer accounts with Barclays Bank. Admiral Markets is part of the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).
Admiral Markets has 3 account types on offer: Admiral.Markets (Classic), Admiral.Prime and Admiral.MT5. Which account is the best for me? If you are a beginner with a small amount of money, Admiral.Markets will be the account of your choice as this is the only account that offers microlot trading (0.01) from the very first order. Your spread will be 0.8 pips (without commissions) and without requotes. Initial deposit is from 200 EUR/250USD/150GBP. If you are a professional scalper with a larger amount of money available, you should go for the Admiral.Prime or Admiral.MT5 account with from 0 (Admiral.Prime) to 0.2 (Admiral.MT5) pips. Initial deposit is from 1000 EUR/1600 USD/ 1000 GBP. Bear in mind that CFD Trading (DAX, Dow, S&P) is only possible with the Admiral.Markets Account. Please note that there is no hedging in MT5.
Within the Admiral.Markets account you can trade a leverage from 1:500 - 1:25 (Forex). Admiral.Prime accounts trade with 1:200 - 1:50 and Admiral.MT5 1:100. Bear in mind: The higher the leverage the riskier your trading if you don't apply a proper riskmanagement.
The forex spreads have already been mentioned above. CFD-Spread:

- Dow: 1 point fix from 15:30 Uhr - 22:00 MEZ

Many traders and brokers have been affected by the "swiss franc tsunami". Some brokers even went bankrupt or encoutered severe liquditity problems.
