Richard has many years of experience in broker research, testing, analysis and reviews. He knows what to look for in a trading broker through years of trading online himself using many different brokerage firms. Some brokers have been excellent whilst some have not lived up to expectations. This first-hand experience ensures that he can deliver informed broker reviews and ratings that are backed with an extensive knowledge and interest in the markets.
I believe that it is imperative to choose a broker that you feel most comfortable with. Whilst detailed information, analysis and comparison of brokers can be very helpful, at the end of the day I would always say to trust your gut instinct. Every trader is different, with their own preferences, needs and goals. Therefore, a broker that is suitable for one user, may not be so for another.
Thus, I try to cover all angles within my broker reviews, using all of the information provided by the broker and available online, to try and help you make an informed decision. However, at the end of the day, you should always do your own due diligence and opt for a broker that you feel happy with. Personally, I would always test a broker on with a demo account to see if they meet my expectations and have suitable trading conditions before even considering opening a real account.
Aside from research the various global markets, brokers and latest trading technologies, I have a keen interest in keeping fit, reading, watching movies, listening to all sorts of music and most importantly, spending quality time with my family.
I hope you find my reviews helpful and I would like to take this opportunity to kindly wish you all of the success in your trading endeavours!
