Realmente pensé que era la excepción a todos los malos brokers. Realice un retiro y me enviaron menos del que tendría que haber llegado.
Tengo todos los respaldos.
Zalan Yurit Country: India Nov 27, 2018
Admiral Markets has a fantastic selection of educational resources for traders.
Laura Van Demo Country: Netherlands Nov 22, 2018
These days Admiral Markets is my go-to place to find out about all things trading.
Matt Letrader Country: Luxembourg Oct 26, 2018
They're one of the brokers I use on a regular basis. They seem to be pretty reliable and seem to always be improving.
Rick Von Country: Netherlands Sep 27, 2018
I find the economic events weekly post very useful. It's really helped me to trade on Forex!
Jakub Schreurs Country: Czech Republic Sep 20, 2018
They take a great deal of care to make their clients aware of the risks involved with trading. Many brokers don't bother to do that, so it's nice to see one that does for a change.
Lucca Trappatoni Country: Italy Aug 31, 2018
A progressive brokerage company with new products, services, fantastic educational resources. Would highly recommend them to beginner traders and professionals alike.

Lowie Ben Bellincioni Country: Greece May 30, 2018
Trading is a risky business, but trading with AM means mimimum risks
Lisa Hannover Country: Germany May 16, 2018
I decided to start investing long-term just in time -- Admiral Markets launched its new Admiral.Invest account that is superb for investing.
Karol Proust Country: Mexico Apr 25, 2018
I started out with a small amount of money with Admiral Markets and actually learned more about trading than I would at some costly trainigs.
Carl Jameson Country: Estonia Apr 12, 2018
MT5 is nice as it is, but it wouldn't be the same if not for AM's Supreme Edition! Bravo!
Michael Seo Country: Denmark Mar 29, 2018
I'm sure there are many good brokers out there, but Admiral Markets was the first one I came across and stayed with.
Karl Stromso Country: Spain Mar 21, 2018
Looking forward to AM's new webinars as I've watched them all!

I love how structurised Admiral Markets' website is. Everything is there... and easy to find!
Sérgio Fernandes Country: Portugal Jan 9, 2018
"Real-Time Daily Trading Ideas" is the best webinar series I joined last year. So much useful information every day!
Lukasz Vasquez Country: Estonia Dec 20, 2017

Justas_Petronis Country: Lithuania Nov 16, 2017
Cheers to Admiral Markets for hosting the webinars with Jack Schwager and Steve Nison. Very informative!
Lucas Nilsson Country: Sweden Oct 30, 2017
The correlation matrix offered in Admiral Markets' MetaTrader 4 & 5 Supreme Edition is amazingly handy. I get an unperalleled flow of trading ideas from there.
Henry Pitre Country: Venezuela Sep 27, 2017
Admiral Markets provides awesome coverage of how political events influence the markets. Their German election coverage is succinct and informative.
Jakob Muller Country: Austria Aug 18, 2017
As demanding as traders can be sometimes, I can't deny that Admiral Markets share more trading tips than any other online broker out there.
John Davis Country: Estonia Jul 28, 2017
Admiral Markets' MetaTrader 4 is simply the best-performing trading platform. Such a solid selection of indicators! Be sure to check it out!
Samuel Country: Switzerland Jul 28, 2017
With Admiral Markets, it was love at first volatility protection. Been keeping calm in volatile terms and enjoying my ride in the world of trading ever since!
Sigfrido Giannino Country: Greece May 23, 2017
I feel like Admiral Markets really cares about their customers. Friendly stugg, good conditions, awesome analyses and educational materials... couldn't ask for more! Thanks.
George_Finch Country: Estonia Apr 28, 2017
Admirals wasn't my first broker. I been trading for very long, back when we didn't have a software/ or tools, etc. Trading was slow and not easy. When I joined Admirals I already had many experience to me, so trust me when I say they offer the best!
Enzo_Jimmie Country: New Zealand Mar 29, 2017
On my way to work, there's a lot of traffic. And the Admiral Markets WebTrader helps me to track my trades during this time. I would recommend any trader who wishes to trade, as they say, "on the go" to check out this awesome tool from Admiral!
Andrew Scott Country: Australia Feb 27, 2017
Lots of helpful advice and recommendations from the world's most renown traders, such as Nenad Kerkez and Chris Svorcik. I usually start my week by reading their fundamental analysis on the most important upcoming events in the global economy. It's like a nice cup of morning coffee for me now :) Can't say anything negative otherwise, my experience has been great so far!
Rex Corey Country: Nigeria Feb 17, 2017
I've been trading for quite a while but wasn't compelled to write a review - at least until now. You really have to give it time before you can adequately asses a broker. Some brokers can go a long way before they scam you out of your money (at least so I've heard). Anyways, there's nothing negative to discuss in my situation. Everything has been top-notch and problem-free (knock on wood). Would I recommend their services to you? Yes, absolutely.
Diederick Rose Country: Belgium Jan 24, 2017
There are so many currency pairs to trade nowadays, it's hard to keep track of it. I prefer to trade less popular ones: they're less volatile, but if you're smart about it, you can absolutely make it happen. Anyway, Admiral Markets offers quite a lot of these pairs, and their support line is quite good as well. Thanks to them, I'm feeling in control – a very good feeling indeed :)
Louie Goodwin Country: Bolivia Jan 9, 2017
If you haven't checked out Admiral Markets’ analysis and webinars yet, do so now! Trust me, it's a great source of information about the market etc. I personally learned many things about what to look out for in trading (turns out I made a lot of beginner-level mistakes). My experience has been drastically improved.
Irfan Ahmed Country: Bangladesh Dec 21, 2016
I'm new to trading, so I was really grateful for all the free information that Admiral Markets give out. I learned soo many things and greatly expanded my knowledge of the markets! Recommend to everybody.
Steve Parkson Country: Australia Dec 7, 2016
I "graduated" from demo trading a couple of weeks backs, and now I'm trading on a real account. If you're just beginning, I implore you to start with a demo account, because it will teach you some useful lessons. I can't imagine what sort of mistakes I would've done if it wasn't for demo trading experience. Admiral Markets' demo account is easy to manage and, all in all, it's pretty standard. Nevertheless, you should really start with this one.
Raginmund Daalman Country: Jordan Nov 29, 2016
My mom recommended Admiral Markets to me, of all people! I was a bit desperate for money, as I was unemployed at the time. In retrospect, it's very surprising that they didn't abuse my situation and helped me become a profit-earning trader. I heard many brokers do take advantage of novice traders' inability but Admiral wasn't of that kind. So far, it's smooth sailing and I hope it will continue to be such :)
Hayim Duarte Country: Japan Nov 22, 2016
I've been trading for a number of years, and I first started in 2009. Naturally, I had many brokers along the way, but Admiral Markets, which is my current broker, is by far the best one. I was already experienced when I chose them, but looking at their seminars and other things, I think beginners could really benefit from it. It's quite widespread for brokers to offer free education, and materials from AM seem really throught-through.
Ted Barclay Country: Cambodia Oct 27, 2016
First thing I notice with brokers, is their safety regulations. I'm very concerned with this, since I was cheated out of money before (be careful!). I have been trading with Admiral markets since last May, and I've yet to see any issues. I feel very safe with them.
Cindy Thomas Country: Sri Lanka Oct 5, 2016
Nice service! My trading coach recommended Admiral Markets to me. He is a serious trader, so I knew I had to check them out. I have not faced any technical or withdrawal problems, so consider me signed up! Very happy with the results.
Nathan Gerry Blecher Country: Germany Sep 20, 2016
Sometimes its better to analyze the market on our own, but not always and hence I confirm my forecasts with the Admiral Markets analysis while trading. So far it has been good journey.
Tim Country: Australia Sep 7, 2016
While there are many scam brokers, I found Admiral Markets as a trusted broker with FCA & MiFID license to keep me rest assured with them.
Jan Daley Katz Country: United Kingdom Aug 25, 2016
Being a full-time Forex trader since 5 years, I like having many options of currency and CFD trading at Admiral Markets.
Slyvester Frindge Country: Belarus Jul 28, 2016
I've been with Admiral Markets since a year and impressed with their descriptive webinars on Youtube channel and frequently updated website analysis which helps me capture the market moves.
