1. Where is country that broker based/operated?
3. Account type, does the broker offer cent account? ECN account
? is CFD trading available? Gold trading? leverage? is swap-free available?
4. Trading platform and funding/withdraw method.
5. anything else.
0 and 1 don't matter for me, I would rather pay attention at the reputation and the support team.
2, 3 - matter a lot. Tight spreads help save money, a lot of account's types tell about reliability of broker. So I would rather choose this one, who can provide cent account and ECN.
4 matters, at specially withdrawing. I don't trust to broker, if withdrawing takes a lot of time.
