As already noted, 10markets is a polyvalent platform enabling traders to enter financial markets trough several platforms. With 10markets, traders can use Forex, via web or MetaTrader, CFDs and Forex. They also offer a wide selection of mobile solutions for trading. The process of login is fairly fast and traders are taken to the “My” part of the 10markets website. In this stage it gets a bit confusing since in order to trade, traders must find they way back to the 10markets homepage. Aside from this little nuisance, the control panel (“My.10markets”) works very good and it is set up nicely.
Forex trading platform is the standard web platform, provided by the Panda TS. We like the platform because it is full screen, with big graph in the middle. To the left traders can choose Hype (60 seconds), high low, one touch or range Forex depending on their preference. Expiry times range from 30 seconds to 10 minutes for short term, 15minutes to 10 hours for high low. also traders can choose end of day or end of week expiry time. In the bottom panel, traders can see the latest winners and latest trades. There are 24 forex pairs, 6 stocks 4 commodities and 6 indices. However, Forex platform has less.
10markets review was also interesting because we discovered they feature a nice setup of financial analysis tools. Financial calculator can be found on the site as well as our favorite, the Forex economic calendar – 10markets calls it the financial calendar. This is a great tool for people who like to trade on times when data comes out and markets move the most as expectations and projections are updated. They will also provide a market clock soon as well as advanced portfolio management tools. More technical analysis tools would be welcome in the basic Forex web platform.
