CityIndex is an ASIC and FCA regulated broker that offers several types of trading to users worldwide. Traders must understand how CityIndex has two websites – one for Australian and one for traders from other countries. This is necessary as regulations in Australia are somewhat different, so offers may differ. For example, CityIndex review found out how this broker offers spread betting, forex, and CFD, while in Australia they offer only CFD and forex. While some traders might consider this to be unfair, but bear in mind how this is an insurance that the broker is following all required legislation.

  1. CityIndex Account Features

    CityIndex doesn’t offer traditional account types such as for example bronze, silver, and gold. Traders can use spread betting or CFDs account or open an account that covers both of these. CityIndex Australia, on the other hand, doesn’t offer spread betting, so traders can open only a real trading account. Minimum deposit required for traders to open an account is $100, but it can also be higher but only in a case when it has to cover the margin requirement of your first trade. Minimum deposit for Australian traders is $500 which is significantly higher than for traders from other countries.
