Swissquote has many advantages, which is why I chose it as my broker. I like that they have good regulation, so I can be sure of the safety of my funds. But even more I like their speed. Deals are registered very quickly, so there are no delays or lags. The same I can say about funds withrawals and support. The broker focuses on successful traders, which is noticeable in interactions with clients. Here you won’t find delays or unreasonable problems, and even if they arise, the company will try to settle everything so as not to distract you from trading

They have difficult registration as for me. I had to join this broker and I am done by sent personal id and also bank statement. But they needed me to send back because my identity was not clear (scanned copy) so I had to resend it

I had different situations with Swissquote. And the ups and downs … But in this way I earned my worthy experience. So, feedback on Swissquote is only positive. Swissquote taught me how to navigate this space, for which I’m very grateful to this broker.

When the news appears, the platform becomes slow and therefore the chart in little time frames is unreal.

I’ve been trading with Swissquote for more than 1 year. I traded with many brokers, but this one seems to be the most comfortable and reliable. Conditions of order execution are really good, as well as the absence of slippage. That makes me very happy. As a scalper, these trading conditions are all I needed. Another pros is no problems with replenishment and withdrawal. I really hope that they don’t ruin their good reputation and continue to provide their top-quality services.

It was a good broker. But they closed my account after one year of trading because I live in Sudan. They change their own rules after a while

I came to Swissquote as a beginner and didn’t know what to start with. I asked support and they drew my attention to a large number of useful educational material.At the moment my trading is going quite well, there is a constant growth of an account. I can praise their analytical materials, which I actively refer to

This brokerage was recommended me as the one that provides excellent executions speed along with favorable trading conditions (spreads). It turned out to be true. I use Webtrader which works great on both laptop and mobile. Executions really are good. Broker is definitely paying a lot to provide stable and fast connection with servers. This is very important for me as a daytrader and has good impact on my profitability. I tried other brokerages so I really know what I’m comparing with
