Please note: We performed tests with a Standard account using the MetaTrader 5 desktop/web platforms and MetaTrader 5 mobile app. We opened accounts with the AMarkets LTD entity of AMarkets, supervised by the Mwali International Services Authority (MlSA). Some features and services may vary depending on where you reside.

The Big Picture

Founded in 2007, AMarkets is a veteran of the forex and CFD industry. Registered and licensed offshore on the island of Mwali (Comoros), it provides access to trading in CFDs on currency pairs, commodities, indices, shares, ETFs, bonds, futures, and cryptocurrencies.

AMarkets is a global broker providing services in Latin America, Asia, and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). Traders can choose from various account types, including an ECN account with floating spreads starting from 0 pips.

Three robust platforms are available: the sophisticated MetaTrader 4, MetaTrader 5, and an intuitive web-based platform. AMarkets offers its own copy trading platform and third-party tools such as AutoChartist. Read on to learn if this innovative broker is a good fit for you.

AMarkets Key Takeaways in 2023

  • Live tests across different instruments revealed that spreads in the Standard account range from relatively high (for example, in forex) to competitive (in the case of cryptocurrencies).
  • More competitive trading costs are available via the ECN account type.
  • Clients have a wealth of instruments to choose from. AMarkets does better than the average broker by offering CFDs on futures, ETFs, bonds, and soft commodities.
  • Customer service proved reliable after I conducted dozens of tests via phone, live chat, and email.
  • Research materials are a strong point. In addition to insightful analysis, a range of tools, such as a sentiment indicator and trade ideas from AutoChartist, are provided.
  • I found room for improvement in our Trust category, as all entities of AMarkets are offshore. However, as the broker is a member of The Financial Commission, a compensation fund is available to clients.

What Sets AMarkets Apart from Other Brokers?

AMarkets has focused on delivering fast order execution, with trades executed in as little as 0.03 seconds. Such rapid execution speeds are made possible thanks to No Dealing Desk technology, trading servers in one data center with liquidity providers, and advanced order routing technologies.

AMarkets is a crypto-friendly broker. Traders can access a wide range of crypto pairs, and deposits and withdrawals are available in cryptocurrencies. In addition, I recorded competitive Bitcoin spreads in my tests.

What types of traders will AMarkets fit the best?

AMarkets can cater to both beginners and advanced traders. Beginners can benefit from reliable 24/7 customer service, demo accounts, micro-lot trading, and a robust range of research materials.

Experienced and professional traders can use the advanced features within MetaTrader, VPS hosting, a trade analyzer, and the opportunity to earn additional income as a strategy provider via the copy trading platform.

How Do We Test A Broker's Trust?
When choosing a broker, trustworthiness is one of the most important things to keep in mind. Always check the broker's regulations, know how financially secure the firm is, and find out whether the broker is transparent and reliable. These factors, calculated into our score, will help you understand if your money is safe.

See More

AMarkets has a lengthy operating history of over 16 years. In terms of regulatory oversight, there is little to none, as all three entities of this broker are based offshore. Client funds are held separately from the company’s operating accounts.

Mwali International Services Authority (MlSA)
Mwali International Services Authority (MlSA)

In our trust category, we place the most importance on how a broker is regulated. This section will cover how the different entities of AMarkets are regulated and how this impacts you as a trader. We rate regulators on a scale of 1 to 3, with 1 reflecting the highest level of trust.

  • AMarkets LTD is registered and licensed as an international brokerage and clearing company in the Island of Mwali (Comoros) with license number T2023284 and supervised by the Mwali International Services Authority (MlSA). We rate MISA as a Tier-3 regulator.
  • AMarkets LLC is registered in the Cook Islands with registration number LLC14486/2023 and a relevant registry operated by the Financial Supervisory Commission (FSC). We rate FSC as a Tier-3 regulator.
  • AMarkets LTD is registered in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines with registration number 22567BC2015 and the relevant registry is operated by the Financial Services Authority (FSA). We rate brokers registered in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines as unregulated.

Why is it important to know where your broker subsidiary (entity) is regulated?

Different regulators provide different levels of protection. The table below lists the protections and benefits by entity, regulator, and region.

Entity AMarkets LTD AMarkets LLC AMarkets LTD
Country/Region Island of Mwali (Comoros)/Global Cook Islands/Global Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
Regulator Mwali International Services Authority (MlSA) Cook Islands Financial Supervisory Commission (FSC) Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Financial Services Authority (FSA)
Segregated Funds Yes Yes Yes
Negative Balance Protection Yes Yes Yes
Compensation Scheme Yes Yes Yes
Maximum Leverage 1:3000 1:3000 1:3000

*We gathered the data listed above in July 2023. Regulatory requirements are subject to change.

AMarkets is a certified member of The Financial Commission, an independent mediator in the financial services industry that ensures the transparency and integrity of a broker and provides a Compensation Fund for up to €20,000 per client.

Stability and Transparency

In our tests for the Trust category, we also evaluate factors relating to stability and transparency. Here, we focus on the broker’s longevity in business, company size, and the level of transparency they provide with readily available information.

AMarkets has a long operating history of 16 years, placing it among the older forex and CFD brokers that give a positive signal. The three entities of AMarkets are listed in the website’s footer, with details such as registration and license numbers.

Spreads and swap fees are clearly detailed in the Trading Instruments section of the website. Prospective clients can review the Customer Agreement on the Documents page. The About page covers the company history, mission statement, how client funds are protected, and awards.

Overall, I judged that there is room for improvement in transparency. The AMarkets LinkedIn page could be improved by properly listing the company name. Although we can see where the offshore entities are registered and licensed, it is not clear where the company is headquartered.


How Do We Test A Broker's Fees?
Broker fees can be difficult to understand. We test the broker's platforms and examine commissions, spreads, and overnight fees to ensure that you can determine if trading with this broker is worth your time and money.

AMarkets Standard Account spreads ranged from relatively wide to competitive in some cases. More competitive pricing is available via the ECN account type. AMarkets beats the industry average by not charging any inactivity fees.

Trading Fees

I tested the spreads at AMarkets across different asset classes using the MetaTrader 5 platform at 8:00 a.m. GMT and 4:00 p.m. GMT on 27 July 2023. I measured the spreads at two different times of day to allow for a greater perspective. 8:00 a.m. GMT is the London open when there is high liquidity in the forex market and tighter spreads in currency pairs. 4:00 p.m. GMT is during the New York trading session.

Instrument Spread AM Spread PM
EUR/USD 1.6 Pips 1.6 Pips
GBP/JPY 4.2 Pips 4.3 Pips
Gold  26 Pips 31 Pips
WTI Crude Oil  6 Pips 6 Pips
Apple n/a 18 Cents
Tesla n/a 86 Cents
Dow 30 9 Pips 8 Pips
Dax 30 4.2 Pips 4.2 Pips
Bitcoin $12 $12

Swap Fees

Swap fees (the cost of holding a position overnight) were average at AMarkets.

In the table below, you can see the Swap Long (the cost/credit of holding a buy position overnight) and the Swap Short (the cost/credit of maintaining a sell position overnight) for one full-sized contract. A full-sized contract is 100,000 units of the base currency (the first currency quoted in the pair). I recorded the data on 27 July 2023.

Instrument Swap Long Swap Short
EUR/USD Charge of $8.90 Credit of $3.90
GBP/JPY Credit of $9.70 Charge of $25.40

Non-Trading Fees

AMarkets does not charge any account maintenance fees or inactivity fees.

Are Fees at AMarkets Competitive?

Via the Standard Account, the spreads at AMarkets could be more competitive. However, I also tested the ECN Account and recorded spreads of 0.4 pips in EUR/USD and 3.4 pips in spot gold. A commission of $2.5 per lot per side is added for all instruments. These trading costs are much more competitive.

Platforms and Tools

How Do We Test A Broker's Platforms and Tools?
Platforms are where you trade, so they must be secure, fast, and accessible while offering you the tools you need to succeed. Each broker's desktop, web, and mobile platforms are evaluated according to the order types, speed of execution, ease of use, and other 'need to know' features.

AMarkets offers the popular MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 platforms and an intuitive web-based platform. MetaTrader provides robust charting, and a wide range of order types, and can cater to algorithmic traders. The AMarkets lineup of platforms can cater to both beginners and advanced traders.

MetaTrader 5 Desktop

MetaTrader 4 Desktop Platform
MetaTrader 4 Desktop Platform

AMarkets offers MetaTrader 5 (MT5) for desktops, which includes advanced functions such as copy trading and automated trading. In the hands-on testing process, I used the MT5 platform.

MetaTrader 5 is available in 52 languages, from Arabic to Vietnamese. The platform provides popular features such as:

  • Alerts. This feature updates traders when an instrument reaches a specific price level.
  • Watchlists. Traders can create a list of their favorite instruments and follow live quotes in a market watch panel.
  • One-Click Trading. This feature allows traders to execute orders with a single click and no secondary confirmation. This feature enables traders to operate faster and is especially useful for short-term traders.
  • Trading from the Chart. MT5 also allows users the convenience of trading directly from the chart.
Order Entry on the MetaTrader 5 Platform

MetaTrader also delivers when it comes to the range of available order types. The platform offers the following order types:

  • Market Order. Traders use market orders to buy or sell an instrument at the best current price.
  • Limit Order. Traders use limit orders to buy or sell an instrument at a specified price or better.
  • Stop Loss Order. Traders use stop-loss orders to buy or sell an instrument when its price reaches a specified level.
  • Stop Limit Order. Traders can manage risk more precisely with stop limit orders, which combine the features of a stop-loss with those of a limit order.
  • Trailing Stop Order. Traders use trailing stop-loss orders as a stop-loss order at a defined percentage or dollar amount away from an instrument’s current market price. This order type allows traders to secure profits when they are in a winning trade while not having to exit the position.
Charting on the MetaTrader 5 Platform
Charting on the MetaTrader 5 Platform

Charting features are robust. MetaTrader 5 offers:

  • 38 Technical Indicators. These include classic trend indicators, volume indicators, and oscillators.
  • 44 Analytical Objects. These include lines, channels, Gann, and Fibonacci tools.
  • 21 Time Frames. Traders can choose from nine time frames, from one minute to one month.
  • 3 Chart Types. Traders can use Bar Charts, Japanese Candlestick Charts, and Line Charts.

MetaTrader is also popular due to its copy trading and automated trading features.

  • Trading Signals. Signals in MetaTrader 5 allow users to copy other traders’ activity in real time.
  • Automated Trading. MetaTrader 5 allows users to develop, test, and apply Expert Advisors (EAs). EAs are programs that monitor and trade markets using algorithms.

The MetaTrader 5 desktop platform is one of the most feature-rich and popular trading platforms. However, it may present a steep learning curve for beginners.

MetaTrader 5 Mobile App

MetaTrader 5 Mobile App
MetaTrader 5 Mobile App

AMarkets offers the MetaTrader 5 mobile app for mobile trading, which is available for Android and iOS. The app offers popular features such as alerts, 1-click trading, and trading from the chart.

The MetaTrader 5 mobile app also provides many order types, including pending and stop orders. However, trailing stop-loss orders are only available from the desktop. To change the language of the MT5 app, you must change the language for your entire phone. As with the desktop and web platforms, the interface is not highly intuitive, but the MT5 app offers an above-average range of features.

Web Platform

The AMarkets web platform includes popular features like one-click trading, trading from the chart, and watchlists. In my experience, placing trades and managing open positions and pending orders from this platform is smooth and easy.

AMarkets Web Platform Order Entry

All standard order types are available, including market, limit, and stop-loss orders. Traders also have the option to apply time-in-force conditions such as Good-Til-Canceled (GTC).

The web platform uses market-leading TradingView charts featuring 11 time frames, 11 chart types, and over 100 technical indicators. Various drawing tools, from trend lines to Fibonacci retracements, are also available.

Copy Trading

The Copy Trading service at AMarkets allows clients to select strategies based on parameters such as profitability, number of investors, and age. Traders can set a loss limit to limit their risk. There is no need to download or install any software as trades are copied automatically in the web-based platform. Traders pay a set percentage of profits for the right to copy a strategy.

Tradable Instruments

How Do We Test A Broker's Tradable Instruments?
In this section, we check the broker’s market offering and how varied the instruments and asset classes are. It will allow you to check if they offer what you're looking for and what you can trade.

See More

AMarkets shines in its breadth of available CFD instruments. As well as offering a robust number of assets within forex, metals, energies, indices, shares, and cryptocurrencies, the broker provides less commonly found CFDs, including bonds, ETFs, futures, and soft commodities like cotton.

CFDs (Contracts for Differences) are financial derivative products that allow traders to speculate in various markets without owning the underlying assets. I found the range of tradable instruments at AMarkets to be better than average. Here are the major categories of tradable assets available:

  • 48 Currency Pairs. A currency pair combines two different currencies, with the value of one currency quoted against the other. For example, EUR/USD, which reflects the value of the euro measured in dollars.
  • 18 Commodities. Commodities are raw products, such as gold and oil.
  • 460 Global Stock CFDs. AMarkets offers trading in stock CFDs from US, UK, French, German and Italian exchanges. A stock is a security that represents partial ownership of a corporation.
  • 2 Bond CFDs. CFDs on fixed income assets include the US Ten-Year Note and the German Bund.
  • 16 Indices. Available instruments range from Japanese to UK stock indices. An index is a basket of trading instruments that are used to gauge a market sector, stocks within an exchange, or the economy of a country.
  • 29 Cryptocurrency CFDs. Cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, are digital currencies that are secured by cryptography.

This information will allow you to know if a broker can provide full support when you need it.

AMarkets Live Chat
AMarkets Live Chat

Whether you are a new trader looking for basic guidance, or an experienced trader who needs to reach support fast in the event of technical failure, reliable customer support is one of the most essential qualities to look for in a broker.

AMarkets provides support 24/7 via email, live chat, and phone. While writing my review, I made dozens of inquiries covering fees, regulatory status, platforms, and account types.

Overall, my experience with customer support at AMarkets was positive and better than average for the industry. Help is available in multiple languages to assist clients across various global regions.

Deposits & Withdrawals

How Do We Test A Broker's Deposit and Withdrawal?
The deposit or withdrawal process can be a tricky one. You may discover that there are hidden fees, or that withdrawal times are longer than you anticipated. We check these factors and others so you know what to expect when trading with this broker.

With 11 funding and withdrawal methods, including credit cards, digital wallets, and cryptocurrencies, AMarkets makes transferring money in and out of your account easy. Withdrawal requests are processed internally within 24 hours, which is relatively fast. Deposits are free, but AMarkets charges fees for withdrawals.

AMarkets supports many payment providers, making depositing and withdrawing from your brokerage account a snap. While there are no deposit fees, withdrawals come with a charge and are the most costly via credit card. Deposits and withdrawals via bank wire are not available.

In the tables below I break down the fees and processing times for each deposit and withdrawal method.

In order to achieve your trading goals, you need to choose the right account. We evaluate each broker's account types, how easy it is to open an account with them, and the steps involved, so you can decide if it is worth your time to open an account.

Opening an account at AMarkets is smooth and straightforward. The process is fully digital, and I completed the application via the broker’s website within a couple of minutes. AMarkets offers four main trading account types: Crypto, Fixed, Standard, and ECN. Each account type has unique features suitable for different trader profiles.

The table below breaks down the main features of each account type.

Demo Accounts

AMarkets offers demo accounts for MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5. Demo accounts are especially important for beginners as they allow them to practice their strategies and get comfortable with the trading platform without risking real money. A demo account features live quotes and simulates live market conditions in assets such as forex and CFDs on commodities, indices, and stocks. Once users are up to speed on a demo account, they can easily switch to a live version.

Islamic Accounts

AMarkets offers a swap-free Islamic account that adheres to the principles of Sharia law.


One of the reasons that traders are attracted to the forex and CFD markets is the high degree of available leverage. Leverage is the use of borrowed funds to increase the size of your trading positions beyond what would be possible using only the cash in your account.

The maximum leverage at AMarkets is 1:3000. This means that with an account of $1,000, you can control up to $3,000,000 worth of positions in the market. Leverage is often described as a ‘double-edged sword’ as it can hurt you as much as it helps you. Traders must remember that it can amplify both their profits and their losses.

Order Execution

AMarkets utilizes a hybrid model for order execution which involves two main components: Straight Through Processing (STP) and Market Maker (Dealing Desk) Execution.

Supported Countries

AMarkets takes clients from many countries globally. However, it does not provide services to citizens in the countries:

Staying on top of important market news announcements and being aware of big themes can be very helpful. The rating system provides a clear picture of how well your broker fulfills this service.
